what do you do when you have rogue paladins in your party?

I recall a group almost ten years ago where "THAT GUY" was a relatively new player to our group and we' d agreed the game was going to be about fantasy [ED heroics - So he shows up with this drunken old man Aout
of a fighter. Meanwhile we' re all playing young kind of weeaboo anime hero types.
We tolerated him and how often he' d talk about how drunk, smelly, and generally obnoxious his character was. He would use metagame knowledge to make fun of our characters in character, laughing at us when we' d get
knocked out, calling us cowards when we failed our fear checks, and the would take pity on us and just kind of give us "let it slide" looks and let us take rerolls.
We' d bitch about it between sessions and we sort of grew to hate the guy as a player; His character would go onto long diatribes about dungeons and gold and how useless we were and we' d get into hour long arguments where
the would constantly have to remind us all to "keep it IS." Anyway this campaign goes on for at least a year, and the storyline is kind and a gets kidnapped, so after another argument session we get
convinced by 'THAT GUY" to take a suicide mission and storm a castle, and he' s basically yelling at us IRL we have to do it.
I Anonymous (( Tue) 07: 03 No.
So when we agree, he leaves the room with the for a few minutes, and we assume this is all some how he' s going to **** us over and steal our **** . They come back in as if nothing had happened. Session
continues but we' re all on guard, assuming something is up. We storm the castle or whatever, and have a lot offen, not really noticing that this guy has stopped being so obnoxious. He hasn' t once mentioned how his character
reeks of whiskey or onions or whatever, though he wastes a good five minutes explaining how his character shaved his beard. Whatever, we just assume the talked to him about how it was annoying us. Epic battles ensue
and Fast forward to face off with the BEES, some Lich thing, and the fight isnt going so well.
We' re getting spanked, our Cleric is down, and Mr. Fighter has a haste and out of nowhere he goes, "I rush to Cedric (the Cleric) and slap him 'GET UP YOU COWARDY' At this point I groan but the is like "Cedric, you' re
back up with xx HP." Then Mr. "Fighter" goes, "I turn to the Lich and I smite him." And suddenly it clicked for all of us.
****** had been playing a Paladin the entire time. His insults were his and calling us out as cowards were his Interfear aura. He wasn' t "That Guy," "w? were "that guy" and we' d just been absolutely out
roleplayed for almost a year.

My best DnD story was with me a friend.

I was a Rogue and he was a Cleric, and we had just started out the adventure.

We were in a town, and walked into an alchemist's shop. The shopkeep was a total ass, and ended up charging me triple price for a health potion. Right before I left I dropped a flask of Alchemist's Fire next to the entrance of the shop. (the entire town consisted of wooden buildings.)

The shop wall caught and spread to the flasks on the walls, at which point everything in the shop exploded causing fire to fly through the town to other buildings.

Within minutes the town had burned to the ground, killing everyone.

My character dropped in alignment shortly after the incident.

Oh my god... yeah he won.

I won d&d once :p
I'll tell you the tale of my char as you shared this thread with us.

Necromancer priest Char.
Had three sex/torture females slaves (npc's DM controled) aged 14, 15 & 16
Obviously Chaotic Evil, other players are Chaotic Good, Chaotic Neutral and Neutral Evil.
A lvl 20 sorcerer (npc) gave us quests and as we grew stronger he let us in on the plot
Evil was coming, he was hidding it in order to prevent chaos.
As we grow stronger and get payed really good by him i start off my plan
I was going to impregnate my slaves and summon my god to earth trhu them and with him some "souls" to make me more powerfull
the most "common" god was good and he showed his face i planned on making my god fight him and after my god had defeated him (with our help) convince lvl 20 sorc to help us kill my god, use the "souls" to trap the gods souls and kill the sorcerer.
Oh also i was "acting" as a monk of the common god and lived in a church, after i had impregnated and convocated the souls the priests find out about my evil nature and decide to kill my slaves take my things (i was rich at this point, had everything hidden) and i found out it was the sorcerer that unconvered me and took my **** , i ask to get my things back and get laughed at and charmed by the sorcerer... as i was a priest charm wore of rather fast, i played as if i was charmed went around town starting rumors about the sorcerer being evil and the god being evil for letting bad things happen to people (as they were because we were fighting this bad things) and set off my "plan B".
I asked other players for money (we were all rich)
Bought 50K worth of "greek oil"
Hired goons to literally paint the church (as it was due to be painted) with greek oil covered paint. (interiors were also painted) i set a trail of fake clues that helped my rumors be more belieaveable
stood outside of the church with my Schythe and burned the church to the ground killing all who escaped the fire
User avatar #45 to #44 - GnRNoD (04/25/2013) [-]
After this the city guard comes to me specting a fight
I drop my weapon and claim that i could not let the evil of the church to continue tainting our world,
as i used to be close to the sorceres(the uncredited leader of the kingdom)
i get to have a trial, i ask for it to be a public trial
I placed a bet on my dices here.
i tell my story (the lies, the rumors and a bit of the true about the whole chaos going on) and blame the sorceres for everything i then shout (As a comand word) "YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE WHAT I AM SAYING" and throw my dices and get a perfect 1 on my command word throw and DM fails his check and all the kingdoms court and nobles believe me they set off a witch hunt for the sorcerer, i am pardoned and revive one of my slaves (along with her fetus) long story short i raised an army of undead and in the middle of civil war i conquered everything little by little without anyone knowing i was leading the undead army once "in power" i commanded my armys to kill everything in sight after that i commanded them to burn everything woods, cities, towns, boats anything (i had like a million followers) and then i commanded them to kill/unkill themselves and that's how i killed his world.
Also i killed an NPC helping us while we were lvl 2 or 3.. that was the first charather the DM ever used in a role game ( he made his char an NPC)

Reading stuff like this really makes me want to learn how to play D&D
User avatar #34 to #3 - organiclead (04/24/2013) [-]
Well, there are several places to start. You can plan an online game or find a local group to get started. I'd recommend getting friends together to play if it's at all possible and not using local gaming stores, considering many players at local gaming stores are people who's been kicked out of previous groups for bad behavior.

Might also be worth trying a slightly more rules light system than Pathfinder. Pathfinder is a good system, but it can be a bit overwhelming if you've never played tabletop before and don't feel like spending a few months going over the book until everything finally clicks.

Do you have any kind of fictional settings you're crazy for? Western? Gangster? Cyberpunk? Classif Fantasy? Science Fiction? Any games you think you'd want to try tabletop in?
User avatar #35 to #34 - deathbylucy (04/24/2013) [-]
I love sci-fi, but am a fan of most fictional settings. Are there any online places that you recommend?
User avatar #37 to #35 - organiclead (04/24/2013) [-]
Sadly, I'm not a big fan of SciFi, so I can't tell you much about each of the systems mentioned or how complicated they are. Traveler is a very popular one, fitting in with the more Star Trekish feeling of space exploration and being more about actual science fiction than anything involving psychics. Eclipse Phase is a game about upgrading yourself and living in a wasteland. Warhammer 40,000 is a pretty big Science Fantasy game (that has both a tabletop war game and a tabeltop roleplaying game) about what is effectively a group of space nazis surviving against an onslaught of demons and aliens (watch out, this one has a lot of in universe information to keep track of). They also have games for Firefly, Star Wars, Starship Troopers and Battlestar Galatia.
I'm pretty sure I'm missing some, but those are the big 3 that come to mind.

As for online groups, I know You need to login to view this link is a good place for Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder. www.myth-weavers.com/ has a lot of groups for several different systems. I know a lot fo epople play by skype and several games have forums dedicated to getting online groups together.

for me it was slow. i got caught up in "powerplaying" and min/maxing.
unless you are playing with a party and DM who also play like this, you're gonna get bored.
The DM (dungeon master) is the most important person in your game. if you find a good one, you can exchange the other party members as needed, but cling to a good DM, if you find them.

Pathfinder is a good place to start. but you can also find games/scenarios from any universe, from tolkien's middle earth, warhammer 40k, mass effect-like space operas, or a 60's spy setting.
google "pathfinder core rulebook" to get a basic idea of core concepts. make positive/extrovert/bubbly/party animal characters, at first to make yourself be talkative around the table and make your gaming experience fun.
lay a plan for surprises, like this paladin, and you're doing good things.

I've never played D&D but I really want to, thing is that I'm far too nervous to just go out asking people if I can join their game nights and stuff. So yeah, kinda at a loss...

Here's a tip on how to start getting involved into the D&D world. Go to your nearest store that sells D&D merchandise, window shop/buy some stuff whatever just make sure you do it at least once every couple of weeks. The more often you do it the better. Someone is bound to notice that you're taking a liking to the game and ask if you wanna join.
(BTW I suggest you read guides and rule books before you start doing this because it's a pretty complicated game and it takes forever to explain

Well, there is a virtual tabletop website, so now you don't have to go out and fear the sun just to get a group.
Best part? IT'S FREE.
I'm with a group now because of this, and I also have never played D&D because my brother didn't want to have a really long day teaching me and trying to communicate with me because I'm the only deaf child in family.
Here's the Virtual Tabletop website.
You can search for what kind of a group you wants to find and join, since there are very many at the moment.
You also should google D&D book and see if you can read the whole book for free, for example, Pathfinder is searchable and readable.
And you will also need PCGen, which is a downloaded program that allows you to create a character sheet. Or you could do it on your own paper if you so prefers.

No problem. I was introduced to it pretty recently, so we all starts out the same!
I have to thank my friend for telling me about virtual tabletop.

As a D&D player myself and from what I personally experience. Groups will 90% of the time welcome new players, specially people who are trying it out for the first time. The only reason why they wont let you in is because the DM is comfortable with his player count. Still doesn't hurt to try and ask tho, just got to ease into it.
User avatar #12 to #11 - eshaythewolf (04/24/2013) [-]
I know a few people who play it, I'll just try and ask them I suppose, buck up my courage and push myself to do it. Interacting with people is just difficult.

the general idea is that one guy decieves the rest of the group to think he is an obnoxious twat, but in the end he is a holy warrior of the light, who has been giving the party various bonuses
