Before we truly start this **** i'm just going to give you a little backstory prior to the game
So before this i was more or less new to the tabletop world i found actually two guys that wanted to try it, to my dismay i found that these two would become the bane of my sanity, let me introduce them
First let's call him Rock cause he always named his character Rock:
This guy was freaking out about the world of roleplaying games he enver played one but when i told him how it worked he became obssessed with it, cool any gm likes a player who actually wants to be there.
The second one let's call him Kool, now this ******* guy was my best friend for 2 years in school short fat guy who never talked to anyone else but me, now this ************ started creeping me out i actually had mental breakdowns because of him, he did everything i did, he talked the same way i did, he tried to copy everything i did. Literally, i fell in love with a girl and after a while Me and other people seriously think he did too he never had spoken to her not even once! but alright this guy is the problem maker and i'm already getting pissed just giving exposition about him.
So let's start I gave the two of them the player handbook for world of darkness, Rock "read" it like it was a narrative book which i strongly advise against because of "rule burnout", and Kool stood next to rock as he read it i imagine.
Alright so they told me they wanted the campaign to be in the victorian era, why not? i like it.
Rock makes an aristocrat of sorts, well spoilers but it was a ******* rippoff of bruce wayne, parents died, lots of money , his alfred was his grandpa who was far away "studying the occult world" as Rock put it and finally obssessed with something in his case, the occult also had a pistol and a cane sword (he begged me for it)
Now these two always had the problem of aiming too high when it comes to Wod they always wanted to become something ******* crazy as in "i want to take the grim reapers's place" or some crazy ******* like that for any other rpg that might be fine but WOD is about personal behind the curtain stuff not epic world changing events as goals.
Now comes Kool's character bare with me people as blood vessels swell near my brain
Black hair, blue eyes, long black coat, scars on his face, no house, no family, no origins, lives with Rock as his bodyguard, and now comes the punchlines, Goal: "to overthrow and kill Rock" and i was like wtf a player's goal is to kill another player? worst of all he didn't tell us why he just did.
I call this type of character the "forced badass" in which a players wants to be cool so bad he uses every trope ever concieved but i'm not done here's more:
The character had gas propelled rollerblades he created, he called them airgears
(retard didn't know they were called air tracks in the anime which he stole the concept, this guy does this all the time he steals everything from anime and tries to pass it on as original)
AND the best: mechanical gauntlets with retractable blades a la wolverine with huge cannons built into them, best of all he said the character had invented these, i found it funny because both of their characters' sheet had 1 thing and 1 thing only in mind, combat, everything was to be better at fighting, so crafts 0 resources 0 etc.
Now you maybe asking are u retarded why let them do this? because i was afraid if i didn't they wouldn't wanna play with me and i really wanted to play.
Ok so we settle down and start playing the premise was that merchant ships that came from overseas were disappearing without notice and that impacted rock's trading business or i think it did, i never understood it, they butchered my plot from the start and i thought i could improvise from there.
So Rock goes to the bay to speak with the people there, alright, he there finds Mr.Dubois an excentric, fat french man who ran the trading scene in the port, Rock asks him if he knew what was happening to the ships Dubois told him that it was pirates for sure and was busy with complaints from other people in town that didn't get the stuff that the ships would have brought, but as rock was leaving a group of old sailors approach him saying that it was impossible for it to be pirates the ships all sailed near eyesight of one another in case they were attacked, the ships just vanished when they were not looking they told him, Rock still wasn't sure.
Now you maybe asking where's Kool? well he stayed at the mansion sleeping, the bodyguard stayed sleeping.
Rock has a compulsion to go to the ******* library for everything with the hopes that the library has the answer for everything.
On the way he hears a paperboy announcing that the queen was organizing a meeting with the big fishes in town to reach an agreement on behalf of the ships,
Now Kool decides to meet up with Rock at the library how did he know Rock was there? idk...
So they didn't even cross paths Rock arrived home and Kool left in a car with the driver without ever seeing eachother.
I'm gonna end part 1 here because it's 4 am and i don't know if you guys are enjoying reading this, if you are let me know.
let me tell you what happened later was just pure retardedness enough to make the two of them fight.
