Is there a thread for bitching about Munchkins? If not, I'll just bitch about this guy here.
I thought the trope description was exaggeration. I thought.
Turns out it's all true, and I had the misfortune to play with one in my first game of D&D. He stole the best loot immediately
(Even if it's not something his character would find valuable), he made an absurdly and illogically overpowered character, he argued with the DM about the most incredible minutae, he attempted to derail the campaign several times "just 'cause", he was be obsessed with getting the most experience for the party even after we said that we don't care, and he would kill everything
on sight, which made my lawful good character his whipping boy. He doesn't even have a reason for being kill-crazy; he's supposed to be a merchant
, not some chaotic evil asshole.
It's almost bizarre how much one player can ruin the game, and at least I was able to actually play
. Our thief couldn't do jack because every single situation he tried to be useful in, Mr. Munchkin would come up with a "better idea" that did not involve Mr. Thief in any way.
It's really soured up my first roleplaying experience. :( I mean, our GM was a pretty decent guy, but I sometimes wished he would just say "No." Is there a good way to talk to a Munchkin player and ask him to stop being so overbearing
