I got one who's like "all the races and backgrounds are boring can I play gnome twins with separation issues and creepy incestuous subtext" as though breaking the D&D mold is what makes characters interesting (hint: it's not, and every other player in my campaign proves it) and it's like... Allowing it won't cure her of this ailment. Gnome twins die or she gets bored of em and she won't want to just go back to a plain ordinary race/class combo... she'll want a pixie or a satyr or something. And I don't want to do that, that's not what makes D&D fun for me. So how can this be resolved with minimal animosity here... "Here's the list of what I allow. If you don't think you can make a fun character from those resources, I think my game might not be for you." Sounds harsh, and if the person is a good friend, it can be painful. But it's the best I have. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
