Cygnia Posted September 10, 2022 Report Share Posted September 10, 2022 5e D&D (this is non-negotiable) game. GM is a ~*Writer*~ with all the baggage that word implies. GM also likes swerves & Misery Porn. Hubby begs me to join "because they're OUR FRIENDS~!" The premise given is it's a high level game, where our toons are tasked with saving the world from Evil ASAP, with OOC reasoning we're cleaning up the mess from a previous campaign (that neither me nor hubby were involved in). Things are ok, for the most part, but there's hinky stuff in the background with someone hacking into our warforged barbarian remotely to give her a breath weapon to attack us with against her will, the elven ranger's higher-ups are being suspicious about motives and the wood elf necromancer being VERY protective of her undead lich dog (it's not actually a lich, but it's definitely NOT your typical mindless zombie) and SOMETHING whispering in its ear to attack us or at the very least, slow us down. Said necro earlier released a black dragon skeleton from out of her control rather than letting us put it down. Oh, and my cleric of Bahamut gets troubled by incest dreams involving her god and his sister Tiamat. GM is also one of those "Organized Religion is to BLAME FOR EVERYTHING~!" in real life types too as an FYI. We're on the cusp of the last session where the GM lets slip that, no, this campaign is his "Empire Strikes Back". Where we will actually fail/job to the Big Bad (who just let loose a Tarrasque) and the NEXT campaign will be us with NEW CHARACTERS (at level one) cleaning up "our mess". And I'm pissed with this bait & switch. I do NOT want to be a part of this, but everyone else seems fine with it. OK, problem is on my end, ergo I don't play, right? I don't tell my hubby that he shouldn't play. He can play and I can go do something el-- No no no...hubby insists that I MUST PLAY~! That we must play TOGETHER~! That we never DO anything TOGETHER~! (nevermind the fact that we're already playing another game together on Wednesdays with another group) And that he's worried that I'm so ANTISOCIAL so that it's for my own good we play TOGETHER~! And our new characters should be LINKED so I have more reason to STAY! This guilt trip is pissing me off and he knows it. But he is doubling down.
