A short video on the “wacky character”

August 5, 2022

POCGamer’s video here is a pretty excellent point about the really annoying thing where someone has to play the “wacky weirdo” in contradiction to whatever the mood/genre expectations the campaign has going. Sometimes this is someone who is basically trolling, sometimes it’s someone who is so used to playing railroaded games where the GM doesn’t let you do anything, you have to come up with outlandish rationales to do outlandish things to evade some tiny aspect of the railroad (Abused Gamer Syndrome).

POCGamer’s Patreon is here if you’d like to support their work.
