Death by Origin Story

One of the most offensive Worst Practices of crap GMs is accepting a (probably off-camera) network of relationships as part of a character's background from a player only to go on a killing spree with said NPCs for the lulz (and more often that not, said deaths are by decree without anything the interested parties can do about it).

Funny thing about that is that the same GMs who do this are the same who complain when their players all roll sociopathic orphans or go full murderhobo.

Peace.

Chapter 2: #85

Comment title for those who checked like me, also I noticed you used the 4e DM Screen?

In one RPG like Mutant: Year Zero, each PC declares NPC's into existence of: one they desire/protective, one they hate/rival, and one PC who is their Best Friend/Buddy. Since the game is meant to be player-driven, I would think this "network" of NPC's is a good thing no?

Viking hat guy

Does the Viking hat guy have a name? I suggest Lars Strawman! :D

@Brian: His name for some reason turned out to be "Bill." I like Strawman for last name, though!

Cool

@Dogbert: Fair enough. I chose Lars because of the viking hat. Went kind of a Scandinavian way with it.
