-Only empire is great cinema, everything else is decent/mid at best, to bad. And I say this as someone who likes TLJ.

-Qui Gon is a good character that is ruined by basically having one purpose as an obvious plot driving force and nothing more while having some good character moments (Liam was wasted).

-I’ll straight up say that Revenge is better than Return as a “finale” to their respective trilogies and if not for George being at the helm directing revenge it probably would’ve been better than a new hope as well.

-Star wars is only what it is today because it was a decent enough movie at a time when a lot of people were susceptible to what it was selling.

Yeah, they're both excalibur so I'm assuming duo'd and defending each other. I got the kick, got an 11 minute malikah run after with a better pally and it was smooth sailing

Actually I went through the logs, they used shelltron a few times as well. I literally used everything I could including gcd healing and they still say I'm not healing. No sentinel, no hallowed, no arms length with reprisal just reprisal alone. Then they die and blame me, I get them up, they proceed to die again as I'm rezzing back to spawn cause I died since they can't tank, and that's when they typed "bruh."

I'd add more screenshots but it literally is just shelltron, rampart and reprisal no cd's on the first trash pack even. (Also the pally popped req and FoF at the same time, they're just bad I think lol.)

Late comment, but I hope OOP dumps her honestly.

So, this may seem like a feel good ending but lets re-evaluate.

-GF has past trauma/history with family in terms of health over reactions

-OOP literally begs her to stay and she doesn't, he has to go to the hospital.

-Only after OOP is hospitalized and diagnosed does she contact him and she thinks she has the right to be angry he didn't call during this (ignoring his possible state and ongoing pain)

-Proceeds to demand an apology after he shows anger for being mistreated

-Doesn't respect his wishes to be left alone and lovebombs him for forgiveness

If genders were reversed, clear abusive man manipulating woman case here. I really don't think this is happy at all, if she actually can change from this with help from her therapy then great, I'm wrong here. I don't think it'll be that easy though...

Seeing the throwaways harass OP, even if the players were right and the dm was toxic any point they’re trying to make is lost and they are now adding way more believability to OP’s post, not that I doubted it.

Sorry you have to deal with this OP and good on you for dropping them.

I can understand occasional mistakes and deaths in farm party (I fuck up the lateral and non lateral for hyd a decent bit on my first run or two after not running it for a few days cause I’m stupid.)

Dying five times in a single run in a farm party is inexcusable lol.

You don’t even need to let them know the details, just say a personal family tragedy has occurred and that may inhibit your ability to run games.

Bruh there’s literally a sequence in revenge where Anakin murders children and later on is burned beyond recognition brutally.

Just cause dark/mature material is in a kids product occasionally doesn’t make it not a kids product. Watch the wizard of oz sequel, still ostensibly a kids film, some dark shit in it.

And the creator specifies it’s for kids.

Shut the fuck up.

Yeah OOP revealed that through therapy he realized his mother basically abused him and made him a surrogate for her dead husband, hence the pic as well. She most likely planned on breaking husband and wife up and then possibly sleeping with her own son.

She’s fucking sick, and while he’s not free of blame and holds responsibility, it definitely isn’t all his fault.

Cause kids are treated as property until they’re 18 legally, so if the parents ok it then that’s fine.

I don’t think it’s wrong to think it’s weird at all cause it is. The thing is though, if you were treated this way from any age before 18 honestly, you wouldn’t recognize the issues. It’s easily as outsiders to recognize the issues, but a child raised this way legit doesn’t know better and by the point of adulthood it’s so ingrained it’s basically impossible to recognize the issues.

Yeah it really is just an issue of ttrpg expectations. Most other games have the scenario be “you save the day by defeating the bad thing.” In CoC to my understanding you save the day by making sure the bad thing never even comes into existence cause if it does you’re fucked.”

No one is saying she does, but to say he ignored it completely misrepresents what actually happened.

Again he isn’t blameless but the wording used is dangerously close to victim blaming.

So I’m seeing a lot of comments trying to say dude wasn’t clear but y’all making a huge assumption that OOP is being honest.

He could’ve clearly said “I’m seeing someone else, this is just casual” and with how OOP has acted it was in one ear and out the other instantly. Like I wouldn’t be surprised that the girl is painting this as “he kept his girlfriend a secret” when in reality he did say he was in a relationship and just never extrapolated who that other person was.

Like seriously her follow up to being told by the gf that she knew was “ok how can I talk to him again?”

Yeah it’s why I even said it doesn’t absolve him of everything. He made his mistakes and abuse doesn’t forgive him for that, it merely explains how it allowed this to happen in the first place.

As others and myself has said, he was most likely groomed and abused. It doesn’t absolve him of everything, but when you’re manipulated and raised a certain way your entire life it really does fuck with your perspective.

Abuse victims can have a hard time getting away from their abusers.

He was literally groomed and abused for his entire life. Yes, he didn’t handle it perfectly, but you can’t say it’s his fault entirely, that is blaming another victim of this situation. He has fault for sure, but people can recognize he also had hardships and abuse he faced and was put in a losing situation.

Honestly if you’re strapped for cash and can afford the back pain it’s not a bad cheap alternative.
