Drama Llamas @ 02:48 pm

saadiira:
Recently in a large online game/community I encountered DRAMA. I loathe drama. At least the OOC variety. In Character it's all good. This was the sort that starts because some people can't tell the bloody difference. So, tell me, as inquiring minds want to know...

What is your least favorite type of drama?

OOC drama is the worse.

I encounted a horrible kind, once. We used to RP on an open online chatsite, then decided to move to another one, made by some of the bigger RPers on the open site.

We got there, and, after a few months, knives came out. The person who did the hardest work for storylines and RP got kicked off the "council", and permabanned from the site, because he was a traitor.

Then, anyone who talked about him, or tried to argue about it, got booted for being sympathisers.

Then the new council brought about their vision for the True RP Site;

Pokemon and Dragonball-Z fanwank.

OH OH OH

I had a brief stint GMing the Werewolf half of a World of Darkness RP site.

My "Co-GM" posted an INCREDIBLY twinky super-character (He was a Homid Silver Fang, and somehow learned all of the Red Talon gifts up to rank 4), the first Kinfolk PC decided it would be an AWESOME idea to go into chat and fall in love with a Giovanni and become his Ghoul, the Tremere Primogen enjoyed using Thaumaturgy not only to break into Elysium after he was banned, while the keeper was there, but to kill people in the middle of the street.

I almost blew a blood vessel and decided Online RP was not for me anymore.

And THEN there was the time, in the chatroom discussed in my first post, where a moderator of the chatsite was going over the PM logs, found a convo I had with someone, emailed it to everyone who wasn't me, then banned me.
Why?

Because I was discussing with a person thoughts I would have about where to take a character, and how he might become a villain that would be using the Sci-Fi part of the storyline to bring a few nukes back in time to blow up the Fantasy part of the storyline.

The email was titled "Is this the kind of player you want in your game?"
I was banned for "Wanting to destroy the gameworld without discussing it with the Council"

And the less said about WoW and City of Heroes, the better.




If I didn't know any better, I'd say it drove me to drink and drugs

LOL! Oh my. Yeah. I've encountered enough drama it hurts, including someone that hassles me/badmouths me all over the community because she doesn't like the person my character was forced to be with in character....who's been 'dead' for six months. wants me to have all RP officially voided, and how dare a no one like me (And that was OOC!) have tried to negotiate peace instead!!!!

It's the crazy that really hurts. :)

Too many choices...

Blatant GM biases
(GM)Railroading/(Player)Godmoding
No-selling
Power creeping Sues/Stus
Willfully impotent GMs who refuse to actually DO anything when problems hit the fan.
Players who refuse to listen to the word "NO".

My least favorite drama is the kind where people get personally offended OOCly by things that happen IC.

With any kind of ex/bf/gf drama a close second.
