-->"As you can see I soon realized that Psycho Dave ran a game in roughly the same way that Warwick Davis in the film Leprechaun granted wishes. Everything you said your character did was scrutinized for some way to screw you over and the dice ruled all. He was the only guy I know who used a random monster encounter chart for Call of Cthulhu. You haven't lived until you've had a character go mad because he saw a nightgaunt sitting in a restroom stall reading a copy of the Necrnomicon."

* IncestIsRelative: On a few occasions, Deviant Boy has gotten away with KissingCousins as an excuse for perversions. At least two instances were cited; the first was with Weasly Crusher's character, and they had matching toe rings, while the second was with Asenath during the "Trapped In Jedi Academy" episode and was mentioned as merely a footnote of the campaign.

* TheFriendNobodyLikes: The basis of "With A Pinch Of Assault" was to play a D&D game without informing El Disgusto about it. Playing a game without El Disgusto in the group seemed to be no small task, as he somehow knew where any game played within Albany was.

Al himself, known as [=Ab3=] on RPG.Net, is led to the group by his friend Weasley Crusher and rapidly finds himself forced into the role of the OnlySaneMan of the group. Arguments, dysfunction, and {{Total Party Kill}}s abound as they systematically ruin every game they can find, from ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' to TabletopGame/CallOfCthulhu to {{Rifts}}.

Added DiffLines:

* OccidentalOtaku: El Digusto's habit of playing ninjas implies this. When not allowed to play a ninja directly, as long as it relates to martial arts (such as a professor of occidental mythology) or at least the delusion of being a ninja in El Disgusto's character's mind, he does not seem to mind. Given El Disgusto's affinity for martial arts extends to outside of the tabletop game, one can assume he relishes in Japanese culture (or, at least, the Western perception thereof).

-->"There was a time right after high school where he was involved in an rpg every night, and more frequently than not ruining them. He and his ninjas broke the faith of the Schenectady Christian Gaming Club yet also sent a group of guys that played Runequest in an old cemetery at night retreating to their church of choice. El Disgusto single handedly did so much damage to our the gaming community that some people suspected he was secretly a stamp collector trying to destroy our hobby from within."

[[spoiler: The entry centers around Ab3 testing out a different group. only to cause a problem with one of the other people's toilets and feel guilty about it. Later he realizes that the plumbing in the house has had to be fixed numerous times, when he goes back to apologize to the Game Master at the time.]]

** Most other people make these on the regular. An exaggerated instance of this was when [[spoiler: The Amazing Boozehound became Rehab Boy for a while, which led to his quirk in "The Great Gamma World Death March" being making these and going "Ha-Ha!" at the end of them.]] Most of the puns made aren't as hilarious.

-->Blobert Smith: "I am afraid that I am still lost in my considerations of these damnable drama cards. Please explain it to me again."//
Me: "Look. It works like this. The cards let you do things that give a little extra 'oomph' to the game. They help your character to do things they might not be able to do ordinarily. Remember that scene in INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE where Indy shoots through like 8 nazi's? If that had been a role-playing game he might have done that by playing a Coup De Grace card... or rolling a heck of a lot of twenties."//
Blobert Smith: "So what your saying is- the Indiana Jones Movies had no scripts? That Steven Speilberg and George Lucas utilized drama dice and d20's to make story decisions?"//
Me: "That's not what I said! I said that if the movie had been a role-playing game those events might have happened because of Drama cards."//
