Proving MH2019 gets a new ruleset regarding the number of votes and the MHC (Miss Hottie Coordinator) can agree that the proceedings occur in a timely fashion I will support a MH2019.

I'm running a Monster of the Week campaign (TTRPG) for a group of friends, and we had our second session tonight. I made a really fun NPC, one that everyone seemed to really like, and I was really having fun with. At the climax of the final fight, one of the players decided to just randomly kill the NPC, because his character is canonically insane.

Probably going to have to talk with him about it. Very frustrating, and I'm def not looking forward to it.

 

I would recommend not talking to him and instead employ an "actions have consequences" way around it. After all it is your story and if you don't want a murder hobo to ruin it - just make the murder hobo's time difficult, have them spend resources that they don't want to use.

 

For example, in a later session (let's say 2-3 sessions from now) have a group of ("powerful") bounty hunters waylay the party (specifically the murder hobo) - with the sole intent to kill the murder hobo. If they happen to defeat the bounty hunters (either with the offending murder hobo dead or alive) - have them find a contract that explains that murder-hobo is the target for whatever reason  e.g. NPC could have been a noble / last seen with your group and someone connected the dots, you don't have to say it was for killing the NPC. In like a Dark Brotherhood kind of way.

 

If murder hobo still lives you can send a stronger party to waylay them at another point in time OR the murder hobo could have been  injured in some way that makes it especially inconvenient to do simple actions.  For exampe: Murder hobo is infected with a virus that puts him to sleep for 1d4 rounds and is knocked prone on a failed cons roll every time they enter combat - have him spend a lot of time and money trying to find a cure only to find would be a cruel waste of time but entertaining for you and can expand the story in a way.
 

That's just an example about how I would punish the offending player without it being immediately obvious that you are punishing them. 

 

Yeah, don't talk to him about it.

The only legal advice we should give is "Talk to a lawyer"

I wrote a lengthy reply about going into gun politics and I cba typing it again so I will say the same points.

Personally I think there is no excuse to need to carry a gun. Especially the excuse of "I need to protect myself"/"I have valuables I don't want to lose". One excuse carries forward the idea that everyone is a murder hobo and the other can be prevented by only carrying items that you are okay with losing or getting insurance that covers petty theft.

 

Truthfully, a gun would not prevent an opportunistic pickpocket from swiping a phone/wallet/bag from a densely crowded place.

Likewise a gun won't help you if a gang of people get the jump on you. A gun is literally there to escalate situations that could be resolved otherwise.

 

When I have visited America it was deeply concerning that any person I would be talking to would be carrying a gun. 

 

Just my two cents as a gunless, english, man

10 years since Miss Hottie 2016 Tricofinal. I walk through the e mpty streets trying to think of something else but  I always end up sitting here, in front of my comp uter. I stare at the screen for hours and try to s ummon Saq. I watch other threads updating and ge tting new content but it is no good. I post on Today to resist the meta, but it's all meaningle ss. The end is near. Then I look on the post history and cry myself to sleep.

I have a dishwasher but I just wash everything by hand. The only thing that bothers me about doing dishes is when my fingers get all pruney.

I'd always rather just do my roommates' dishes than let them stink up the whole apartment. It sucks letting someone be a lazy brat, but I'm not gonna live in filth


Bung everything in the dishwasher including his knives to make them blunt.

Honestly I have no clue where the 1 page resume rule came from. When we receive your application, there's probably 10 pages stapled to it anyway. By all means, filter out the fluff, but don't be afraid to submit a 2 or 3 page resume. In fact you probably should be able to fill a couple pages if you're looking for a mid level position

The one-page rule probably came from HR-managers that couldn't be bothered doing their jobs.

 

I guess in the age-of-convenience and to make baby boomer's jobs easier they would have preferred shorter CVs so they had had to do less work.

"If you have a PhD and your resume is less than 3 pages, you look like an idiot"

- my psychology professor

Guess I am an idiot then. I can tell you that not many PhDs would be decorated enough to have anything more than 2 pages at best unless you literally write "I have excellent abilities in mark-up languages and can produce elegantly designed manuscripts and presentations" instead of "Proficiency in Markdown/LaTeX". This is including a presentations and publications section and other responibilities such as invited reviews and membership to societies.

 

Source: Am PhD student.

 

But if you seriously cannot consolidate your skills and expertise into a 1-2 pages even after a PhD you are seriously doing something wrong in my honest opinion. Anything more than that would be for things such as publications and presentations which you should only really select a few of them. If you are a decorated PhD holder, with 8-10 years of Post-Doctoral Research under your belt, then a long CV IS needed since you also have to detail down sponsors and who has funded your research alongside titles of such things.
