She is also magically afflicted with a mild psychotic/paranoia madness
Ehh...
she is usually verbally abusing him when she is talking to him (worthless male half-breed).
Ehh..

she talks to him like he is a dog
Ehh..
The other player is ok with this (I think)... He is usually pretty quiet in game and mostly puts up with it.
Ehh..
So she thought of him as her true love when they bedded down. Now the next day has come and she is very confused.
Ehh...
she really had it coming.
Ehhh...

What's more unusual to me is that we don't often see characters verbally abusing each other to the extent noted in the OP until-unless they've done something noteworthy (and usually either stupid, highly unwise, or selfish/cowardly) in-game to deserve it.

Well, we sort of have the Legolas-Gimli initial relation as an example, and I've had that kind of roleplaying in some parties. Sometimes it was really "felt" by the characters, sometimes it was just teasing, but in all cases, it was character to character and the players enjoyed it quite a bit.

In particular, I had my CG Wild Archmage constantly teasing the LG priest who was very stuffy, and he bore it with incredible steadfastness. :p

or when you have LG Paladin, so you as a CN rogue constantly lie to them, even for the slightest thing.

We had that paladin, back in the day, called Sir Tristan Martin-Gelle, who did not like thieves going first because they were always stealing. So once or twice, when a thief tried to go in first, the paladin attacked them, then laid his hand on them to heal them. Usually, the lesson was learned... :)

stupid rogue,

you always let paladin 1st to scout ahead, when he falls into pit trap, then you steal everything.

After that, you give him the rope to climb out.

Yes, the paladin in general had a hard time, these were a few times where he actually came out on top... :)

3.5 Paladin had a hard time because the class sucked (outside of spellcasting). It was a dip-class for Divine grace. That's it.
that is true. but you needed to have trucks of wisdom to make spellcasting work as paladin.
You were better of taking bonus feats with ACF from various splats.
And charging smite instead of special mount.

For a Holy Warrior were better off taking 2 levels in Fighter (or Crusader which is even better) and the rest in Cleric. Or even just all the levels in Cleric.

Plus you get to ignore all the 'lose your class features at the DMs whim' stuff.

I was just saying if someone wants to play pure paladin and cant have lots of wisdom.

PF1, did better for paladin, and spells were based of charisma.

I would think that the drow in the OP would have no problems with killing the assassin once she found out that she was drugged and taken advantage of. Sounds like, "That's what my character would do." defense. But the problem of you as a player being fine with another player proceeding with it in the first place now means that you two find a better way of dealing with it. Maybe your PC liked the assassin, but could not let on without looking weak to the 'male', or something. Perhaps finding a time warp spell to erase it, maybe forced marriage.

Normally I am not a fan of Player Vs Player but this has been pretty funny to play out and she really had it coming.

Mod Note:
"...she had it coming?"

What happened in this game is not significantly different from a woman being drugged at a party and taken to a room while unable to consent to sex. The idea that she "had it coming" is horrible, sexist apology for rape. It is abhorrent.


Honestly, I see a lot of negative outcry here but have any of you considered that maybe it's covered by their table rules


In a world in which women are roofied and raped, and men say, "They had it coming," whether it is by the table rules or not is irrelevant.

Making excuses for this kind of thing makes women feel like the men here are unsafe to be around. If you want rape in your games, this board is not the place to discuss it.
