Bill, you can thank me for this thread later; after you've fully comprehended the magnitude of love and respect that is being shown for you by many of the RPPR fans.

I know I'm not alone when I say that I look forward to your imminent return. The last few APs just haven't been the same without you...

Cody, stop kissing Mike's ass! That is why I will never join the Cult Of The Crab. Pinchy is the only crab for me!!!

Crab?! You talkin' shit 'bout ma Lobsta god, mutha fucka?! Is Tad gonna have to chuck a bitch?



I couldn't have said it better myself and I appreciate that you channeled me for your response.

Thanks so much, I bask in your love and respect now, and in the monetary donations when they arrive. When should that be, this week some time?

Seriously, though, I did/do concern myself with how the fans see my contributions to the RPPR machine. Mike is entertaining, in a way, but he's also an ass, and somewhat counter-productive to enjoyable sessions, and I was waiting for the day when people began to see that.
Thanks for padding my ego!

Mike's problem is that he isn't actually a role player. He's a min-maxing video game player rolling dice. Every game I've played with him, he has essentially played a sociopathic combat junky who has no idea how to interact in the game world. Good guy to have in a Halo game, but the worst person imaginable if you have to negotiate a treaty to end a war.

That was the Survival City Fear Itself game. Fourth of July "special" I believe. Cody was mayor elect and Mike was playing the teenage daughter of Kari's MILF character. Mike's character had recently killed her boyfriend, the same boyfriend that the mother had recently seduced. Among other things, Mike attempted to shot the shadow enemies.

You had some fucked up shit in that game. The people in that town freaked me out.

Bill, I think you add a lot to the games.

I think that you bring very strong element of thoughtful roleplay to the games that you participate in, not to mention a certain levity.

I like Cody for the exact opposite reason that I like you. I think that the both of you are basically two aspects of what I love about RPGs in general.

That being said, I find myself more and more annoyed by Mike. I agree 100% with your assessment; Mike really adds nothing to the games he participates in because he "plays" the same character...

I also find his antics tiresome, especially his tendency to "bully" and "talk-over" the other players. I think Mike honestly thinks that an RPG game is something you "win" and I find myself just wishing Ross would say "Yeah Mike, thats it! You win, YOU FUCKING WON DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, now shut the fuck up for a minute and let the other RPPR guys ENJOY the game!"

Of course Ross is too diplomatic to do this, but a guy can wish.

That doesn't mean that I think Mike is a terrible human being or a bad guy. I just think that his urge to "dominate" the game and his ceaseless power-whoring is absurd and pointless and adds absolutely ZERO to the actual plays.

 I mean hell, even Aaron is willing to explore different characters, albeit however tentatively, but the point is that he is willing to try!

Cody, need I remind you of the many inane terms you've coined that rattle around in my mind without end. Frog-snatch! Cum-shitters! Cthulhu! Ftaghn!

Well, the opposite of thoughtful roleplay would be unthinking reality.
