Proper response to horrible GM?


Gamer Talk

Shadow Lodge

My GM dared to have an enemy successfully attack me and actually inflicted a point of damage on my 12th level barbarian. Should I kick my GM in the testicles until my foot bleeds?


That is exxagereted man, you can stop afther he bleeds.


Yep, yer gm's a total jerk.


Nope. Toootttaaallly your fault for not making your AM BARBARIAN clone awesome enough to distort reality with his bad grammar. You need more awesome and less foot breaking on your GMs adamantine testicles.

P.S. This thread is sure to be locked but with 5,000+ posts you should know that.

My GM actually said that there was no way the King would be intimidated by my first level bard. Wouldn't even let me roll the nerve!

Oh! I think that's the same guy who wouldn't let my Halfling trip an enlarged centaur! I totally feel your pain.


I would recommend never playing with that GM again, or playing with any other GM because honestly they're all bad. Just spend all your time on the forums posting elaborate character builds you'll never play and explaining to everyone how they are objectively wrong to be playing any class other than wizard.

That's the way she goes, mate. That's the way she goes.

This is why I'm ready to fight as a GM. 'Cause when my players are melted to goo, turned to stone, wiped off the planet, plane shifted to hell, hurled into the atmosphere, or balefully teleported into space, one needs to understand how to use a sword.

Or...your players could thank you. That seems to happen more often, and I'm not sure why...

If you were trying to be funny, I can only say that you rolled a 1 on your skill check.

No. If your foot bleeds after you have kicked your GM in the 'nads, you need to improve your kicking technique.


PFS or Homegame? If homegame, you have no recourse. If PFS, lynch him.

One time my GM made me face a 5th encounter in one day after the standard four encounters were over. Should I kill him or just find a new DM?!


It's a shame I haven't had a reasonable DM.

Because then I'd be able to join in on these jokes.

My 3.5e DM doesn't count, because her campaign was full of win.


@Kthulhu:

It's hard to say, we need more context. Was the damage he inflicted lethal, or non-lethal?

Also, did everyone agree in advance to play in the kind of campaign where things would just up and attack you like that?

The sad thing is, many years ago, I actually played in a D&D game where a player made a similar argument and intended to be taken seriously. Not as extreme, but he was royally pissed that one (only one person) in the party had almost been taken to half max XP, and that all of us took some damage (most of it no more than 10 points or so when we were around 12-14th level). I remember this conversation with him...

Me: None of us were even at risk of dying. Taking damage in D&D is kind of what you're supposed to do.

Guy: *ignoring this point* And you! You had to cast like four healing spells! ((The spells he was referring to was one spell for each member of the party -- three cure light and one cure serious. If it had been Pathfinder, I probably could have burned a channel energy use and not even cast any spells at all.))

Me: I'm a cleric. That's kind of what I'm supposed to do after a fight. And I've got loads of spells left.

Guy: *ignoring this point as well* IT'S NOT FAIR!

So yeah... sadly... there are people who have this attitude that if the party takes damage, the GM is doing something wrong.

You should bump your speed (Swift foot rage power 3x) and get the feats Fleet and Run. That way when the GM threatens you with a d20 you can just leave. That will show that horrible GM that he can't intimidate you with an under CR encounter.

Channel your inner Brave Sir Robin.

Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it's ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the braaaave, Sir Robin!


Some of my players (who are also co-players in D&D game) get to whine "We all gone die! GM wants to kill us all! We're doomed!" every time anyone in the part drops to half hp. Abyssal gods save us if anyone actually drops to 0... So much lamentation.

Thankfully they do not start arguing. At best they start to look for loopholes and omissions from their own or GM side to save their (not yet seriously) endangered bacon from the fire.

If getting favourites is the only thing you live for on these boards, then you are indeed a shallow soul.

Sometimes, just sometimes, I miss some "dislike" button, yeah.

Usually the "favorite" is used when someone agrees with someone else. You said the OPTIONS wasn't being funny and I was just pointing out the fact that nobody marked favorite on yours so people must find it funny because that's all it is.

I don't live for faves on these boards or any board for that matter.

As of this writing, nobody has favorited anything in this thread. Clearly everyone here hates every post here.

This is like an All-Star team collection of "People this thread was for".

...wait.

Dang it.
