D&D General Dumb Reasons To Get Booted From a Group.

As the title says. I ran into an old mate and he told me he got booted from a group.

His crime? Not being a vegan.

There was probably other things going on but that's the reason he gave.

I'm a more keep what you kill type so doesn't bother me. If you can skin it or fillet it meh.

I'm sure there's some horror stories so let's hear them.

I have not seen some of these, but I'm guessing something like not bringing food/drink or voting the 'wrong' way may count.

Game reasons may be something like not letting me roll dice or playing a certain PC.
 

I got booted out of a game of Vampire because I knew the rule better than the current story teller... 3 weeks later, that group came to me and asked me to be their story teller. Just said nope, I already had a group of neonates on the go. Irony is a b*tch sometimes.

We were playing metagurps. When my turn came up, I rolled Biotech, Horror, and Bunnies & Burrows. They offered to let me reroll, but I got my stubborn up-- maybe if any one of those cowards had said they didn't want to play that game, instead of telling me I couldn't make it work...

Anyway, two sessions later... on the third session, I showed up and the conference room was empty and all of their cellphones went to voicemail without ringing.

The group I‘d been gaming with since 1996 or so also included some guys I’d known since the mid-1980s. Someone quickly set up a Yahoo Group to handle communications. Worked for years, but Yahoo decided they weren’t going to support them anymore after 2017 or so.

One of the guys set up a Slack account for the group. I told them I wasn’t interested in using Slack, but since my email & cell hadn’t changed in a decade, and my home phone hadn’t changed since 1998, I told them to contact me that way.

And they didn’t.

I got booted because I created a Blade clone with several ranks in celerity, a black trench coat and dual katanas, while my friend also got booted for creating a clone of the Count from Sesame street.

We had a lot of fun for that session trolling the Goths playing it though so totally worth it.
 



We knew the session was gonna be bad at the start when it was a Goth dude Ref, and his harem of mostly female Goth players.

It just gave off the vibe that they liked to live action half the crap they were roleplaying, and a lot of it was pretty overtly sexual.

To break up the cringe and creepy sexual vibes, every now and then I'd yell out 'Whistler', play the Blade music on my phone (to assist with the deep immersion we were going for, naturally) and Leeroy Jenkins buckets of dice slaughtering everything in sight, while my mate would count off victims with a 'One Werewolf, TWO Werewolves..' in the Counts voice from Sesame Street.

We came. We saw. We conquered.

Pretty sure our existence was retconned out after that one session. Be hilarious if we were canon in that story though.

Well you're the problem in that group. I wouldn't join such a group but if they're happy enough whatever.

To emo for me though.

I started using messenger because everyone else did.

It is easier vs messaging everyone individually.

Ouch.

But as for your roll... Ever read Grant Morrison's We3?

That’s not a dumb reason to get booted from a group, it’s a perfectly valid one. You absolutely deserved to be booted for that, and frankly I’m surprised you were allowed to get away with it for a whole session. It’s fine if you didn’t like the tone of their game, but that doesn’t give you an excuse to be a disruptive player. If you don’t like a game or a group, just leave. Don’t be a jerk.

I'm comfortable being a jerk to sleazy DM's who groom their female players to play out weird sexual vampire fantasies with them.

I wasn't going to go along with it, and (sadly) we were relying on a friend to pick us up so we were stuck there.

The only person I legit felt bad for was the girl that invited us, but after further discussions with her, it turned out my initial read of the group (and the DM) was absolutely spot on.

Turns out we did her a solid.
