I've played with gamers that I couldn't trust. Die cheats, charsheet cheats, people who base a character entirely on how powerful they will be. I don't play with those people any more. I trust the people I play with.

I had to vote for #2.

I would have voted 100% trust but there is one player who always wants to play an evil character. He usually sets about trying to kill everything, both monsters and townsfolk.

If he can't play evil he picks a paladin and plays the stereotypical annoying arrogant SOB that we all love to hate in the paladin class.

The rest of the players are great about creating characters that are fun for them and productive members of the party.


First Post is an odd thing. I'd trust all of my players with my life, but there's one that REALLY wants to play an assassin. Even though we're playing your standard 'we are the heroes, we roll for initiative' campaign. To keep him happy, I might start an evil campaign some time, and come to think of it, this is probably one of those REAL tests.

If my players can create Evil characters who don't just kill everything, and have a motivation for being evil, then I would say I fully trust them.

If you mean in real life no. The ones in my games, sure. But I put the restrictions more for FLAVOR than for anything. They give me good reasons, I'm pretty much a softie. :)

I voted "most of the time", but my current gamers are all 100%. They work together to build and interesting and fun party that won't fall apart within a few sessions.

But I have some in my "extended" game family that need to be reigned in occasionally.

Well, depends. If we trusted the DM not to slaughter us if we went a little soft on power, then I don't think our group would have a problem with not min/maxing. If, however, there was an abnormally high death rate, then we as a group are excellent at powermunching characters. We had one instance where we had... I think 12 deaths before we hit level 10. Needless to say, the party was munched to the gills when we turned the corner into the double digit levels.

So far I must say the results suprise me. With all the talk of limiting PCs and PCs question their DM's I really expected a much different set of results.

Or it might be that people aren't going to accurately post how well they trust their gaming group. Hard to say.
