Don’t be a dick!

Anyone else tired of all of the baby hand holding that has to go on to get a game together?

I was talking with some of my gamer friends and they seem to share that opinion: If you join an online game you should do the following:

  1. make your own character (or download a pregen),
  2. know the basic rules (they are ALL free)
  3. most importantly: treat the GM/DM with respect, afterall they are taking the time to setup and run the game, for free, just for you to have fun.

My new policy:

  1. If you’re a dick, you will get banned after your 2nd shitty comment.
  2. If you don’t show up to a game or let me know before hand you can’t make it, you’re banned. Especially after I took my time as a GM to work on your character!
  3. If you are 12 years old and join an 18+ game, you’re banned.
  4. If you want to run a solo murder hobo who doesn’t work well with others and won’t get off it, you’re banned.
  5. If you disrespect the GM or the game, you’re banned.
  6. If you quit in the middle of a session just because you’re too much of a pussy to talk with the GM, you’re banned.

What about you? Do you find there are lots of people like this on Roll20 and G+?
