It happens to be a succubus encounter.


TaxMy

My perception check for detecting the trap gave me advantage on the subsequent wisdom save. Although, that is the first time I've seen a bot with the ability to be "online now" so that was confusing at first, ngl. Edit: preception is definitely not perception.


Quail_Initial

Not a bot.


TaxMy

***WHAT HAVE I DONE?***


WantToBeACyborg

Saved yourself from having to make a fortitude save?


TaxMy

I'm too much of a youngling to make that work. SWKoToR notwithstanding.


TheTinDog

I mean it's definitely a scammer, some of those are humans by their basic functioning anyway, usually a foreign scammer tho, not even necessarily actually a women. The terrible english is usually a good indicator.


Don_Hoomer

and if you say yes to them they send u a link to their profil to Chat because they arent much online 'here'


send-borbs

I read all messages like this in the same voice as this weird mouthbreather who once called me repeatedly at 6am on a saturday and asked me if I was in my bed


Pinglenook

There is this .gif of a Chinese guy sitting in front of a clear plastic door hanger thing that's full of smartphones, all on, and he's working all the phones at once, using both hands, posting things in chats and on forums, moving quite fast I would post that .gif here now, if I could find it with Google. But I can't, so you'll just have to make do with my description.

edit: lol sorry, I'm trans myself and I forget I can't joke with that word in most places. my bad


Dalimey100

Be more mindful of the language you use in this sub. Thank you.


sariisa

sorry, I'm trans and too used to throwing that word around with people who I know are chill with it. I apologize


TaxMy

didn't see/read the comment, but as OP \[definitely not a mod\], my small comment is that learning is always great \*\*and respect the power of the internet\*\* :D


Elm0sgottagun

Dude, don't use the T slur pls

I just woke up and was trying to think of what a tea-related slur would even be.

CyanStripedPantsu

My progressive gay friends use the F-slur a lot casually, so it doesn't surprise me that trans folks would use the T-slur. It's probably empowering to reclaim it, same way black folk reclaimed a word that was used by slave owners. That said, probably shouldn't say any of them online since people don't know who's saying it, and it can easily confused with being derogatory.


jack_the_maniac

There are some who want to reclaim it but afaik most dislike it. My personal view is if you want to reclaim it as a label for yourself and only yourself, more power to you but recognise that the violence caused by the mindset behind the slur is still prevalent so be tactful about it and respect those who think it shouldn't be reclaimed until there's less public trans-panic.


Satioelf

There is the other aspect to it too if you're from the anime community. Which for me was where I heard the word more frequently where it was used to almost exclusively refer to fem males and not trans individuals. (Trans rep in anime is a whole other rabbit hole) So when I first heard years ago it was also historically used irl to disregard trans folks and to abuse them I was very confused but kinda got it. Being trans myself I have mixed thoughts and feelings on the word because of that and the order I seen it in.


Dragonwysper

Yeah. I am not a fan of slurs, and words like tr#p and tr###y are especially bad for me. Of course I'm not gonna yell at any trans person trying to reclaim them, but I've seen them used way too often as insults to be comfortable with them.

ACABForCutie420

DOOManiac

I spent way too long thinking “I don’t remember that part of Empire Strikes Back”.


ACABForCutie420

crazy, i spent half of skyrim wondering where the storm troopers were.


TaxMy

They're evolving! It was an Instagram bot that had \*several\* of my college friends as a mutual follow, so I thought that it was someone from our classes that I had forgotten.


Pls_PmTitsOrFDAU_Thx

I have questions for your college friends...


Necromas

A lot of times if one legit persons account gets compromised it will get used to share bot accounts with all of that persons friends. So Bob opens an email attachment he shouldn't have and now his account is controlled by the succubus. Then Jack sees her messages and goes "Oh Bob said she's cool..." and then John goes "Oh she's friends with Bob and Jack..." and so on until you get to OP.


alandtic

i love it when they say hi i am from college when i'm still in high school.

BlackScienceMan420

Can I make a perception check for the sauce?


TheTinDog

money or phishing, usually that leads to hey join my cam app or "send me money" or the simple "where are you?" "what do you do?" "Where are you from originally?" "What's your mother's maiden name?" ok that last one was a bit of a stretch, but yea, you get the point, its all about getting you to throw money at them or enough information to take your identity


xmuskorx

woolly_bully

This redditor XKCD's.


bigmonmulgrew

Money is the end game. Once they hook someone a person will take over. They will flirt a bit and then they and arrange to meet. But they need a ticket first or some other BS that requires money to be sent. Its sad really. There are guys who fall for it because they are innocent and lonely


Qohaw_

Tell them that you will meet at *their* place, so you don't have to buy the ticket for them # see them panic


SmurfetteSyndrome

...or get kidnapped


dCLCp

There could be many reasons. Off the top of my head: phish aka collecting data about horny lonely guys for various purposes. Demographic details, phone numbers, usernames etc. Other types of research either state sponsored, academic, or individual. For the lulz. For the cred. Tinder itself attempting to keep user engagement. (Least likely but still possible, and they certainly have very little incentive to stop scammers) Straight up Scammers e.g. scammers trying to redirect you to a card swiping site. (Most likely candidate) Legitimate scammers using illegitimate means e.g. only fans agents, people trying to use automated tools to get users to Legitimate places. Edit: wardriving -> phish


redworm

>There could be many reasons. > >Off the top of my head: wardriving aka collecting data about horny lonely guys for various purposes. Wardriving means literally driving around looking for open or vulnerable wifi networks.


Milkslinger

You send dick pick, they blackmail you for $


JuniorSeniorTrainee

Sounds like a good way to start off my dick pic career without having to pay a dick publicist. You'll be seeing me on the next cover of dicks monthly.


ObiWanCanShowMe

I've always wanted to be on the cover of that magazine, but the thought of flying out, being in a big city, staying at a hotel, dressing up, the makeup, the lights, the 8 hour photo sessions... it's just all too much.


Long8D

Usually it’s for cpa offers. They’ll send you to a page that collects your name/email and they get paid for a few dollars for the lead. Then you’re going to get spammed by all types of emails and scams.


tsotate

CPA offers? Man, certified public accountants are getting that desperate for business?


pauly13771377

My guess is to keep you subscribed and to sell Onlyfans accounts.

Same shit since the Yahoo Messenger days. Had pretty much the same conversation about 20 years ago, only I was playing Atomic Bomberman.


goldkear

You just sent me on a deep Bomberman nostalgia trip!


JaywalkingCat

this mad man really be playing D&D in Google Sheets. tbh would give it a try if it meant getting away from Roll20.


TaxMy

I wasn't DM this session, but we've actually made Sheets work in a surprisingly successful manner (at least several sessions worth).


migueeel

You laugh now, but Google Sheets works on phones. TTRPGs on the go! Plus, the formulas help.


electroninja585

Have you seen r/owlbearrodeo ?


alexportman

I've been using it the last 2-3 sessions and it is so much faster and less fiddly than Roll20. My one and only complaint is that I can't DM across multiple computers.


JaywalkingCat

Looks interesting! I'll give it a try!


LittleOmid

Switch to foundry. Soooo much better than roll20.


FriendsCallMeBatman

So expensive though.


Rndom_Gy_159

Eh, the price of a video game, one time purchase without any recurring charge bullshit, supporting a great developer with tons of modules, and only one person in each group needs to buy it. All make it well worth the purchase.


SuperTD

If you only user the free version of roll 20 yes, but if you have even the cheaper subscription, it pays for itself within a year. Also, it's just a far better experience.


iAmTheTot

It's a one time purchase and then no subscription ever again if you're capable of self hosting.


FinalEgg9

Eh, pros and cons to each. We've found Foundry quite unreliable at times and the character sheets are nowhere near as simple as DDB (so I've switched to the Beyond20 add-in instead).


LittleOmid

We barely use character sheets at all with the HUD module. Also there's lots of different character sheet modules that you can choose from. The unreliability is however not an issue which I've had. I am self hosting it and had no problems so far.


evankh

Holy shit you're right, I gotta try that I already use it for character sheets. Fucking hate roll20.


phoenix_nz

Foundry for life dude. Only your DM needs to purchase it. Everyone else just logs in via web browser.


arcxjo

... and still needs other sites to actually handle their characters.


Pokepokegogo

truth.


PM_ME_FUN_STORIES

...not really? You can build your character completely in foundry's character sheet. It's not all that hard, assuming 5e. Outside of 5e, yeah, you might have to get a module or something else, but with 5e its fairly straightforward.


Pokepokegogo

oh sweet summer child


phoenix_nz

Like what, exactly?


DaRev23

Bruh. Why you texting when you should be rolling?!?! Lol


HELLFIRECHRIS

Thank you! I was looking for this comment. Get off your phone at the table.


Squishy_Thing

It’s over discord to be fair and most games I’ve played over discord are much lower energy than at the table, I feel like the pace is slower and I don’t think there’s any problem checking your phone when it’s not your turn, that maybe a hot take.


jdbrew

Yeah….. I’ve definitely immediately bailed mid session when my wife came down to the basement (where I play over discord) in lingerie, holding toys. I love playing DND, but that was the fastest I’ve ever bailed out of a game, and I don’t regret it. To be fair, it was like 1 AM already


Skeleton_King9

you closed the webcam right? **you closed the webcam, right?!**


LibertyLizard

What do you mean? Your group doesn't like to watch the other players role-play?


DuntadaMan

I know we all love role play but I think it is important we sit back and let other people have the spotlight now and again.


fazey_o0o

Doesn't mean we can't watch... I mean, it's what my character would do


rjrttu86

I usually loathe that sentence... "I mean, it's what my character would do!" This time though... I'm in agreement.


fazey_o0o

Imagine having sex with your so while your whole D&D party watches (edit: i meant the characters. Just to be clear)


-hey-ben-

No


fazey_o0o

Okay, have a nice day sir.


jdbrew

Hahaha yes. I actually just shut off the computer and followed her upstairs


EternalAchlys

Webcam was already off. No one needs to see me snacking or rolling my eyes at certain “character choices.” (There’s one person who likes attention grabbing characters who don’t always fit into the setting. They have other good points though.) Honestly it’s been kind of cathartic and helpful to be able to make whatever facial expressions I want and occasionally take off my headset if someone gets into a snit about a DM ruling. I know that sounds horrible. Anyone else experienced it though?

JoshThePosh13

a little… it’s nice to be able to talk in character without putting effort into making the right facial expressions. Also I don’t feel bad checking my texts when it’s someone else’s turn in combat.


EternalAchlys

Yes! Agree on both points. It’s also easier to try accents without everyone looking at you


redworm

I'm in one game where we have cameras on and another with cameras off. Both have their benefits and drawbacks, the camera group has been playing together for a lot longer so we're not strangers and have enjoyed being able to see each other as if we're sitting around the table (roll20 is great for this because the camera can be right above the battle map) but when I DM the other game I like being able to walk around while I'm describing a scene. I talk with my hands a lot so it does mean having to change my descriptions a bit to compensate. Having the camera on helps me set the scene better.


MoscaMosquete

Tbf if it's your wife it's a completely different story.


ThisGuyMightGetIt

I don't know, if a strange woman just appeared at my door with toys I'd probably drop too - I haven't played Beyblade in ages.


thenlar

My wife won't do this because she's also in the session


Sir_Encerwal

I choose to believe your PC bailed for similar circumstances. Like they got a sultry casting of sending and decided the rest of the party can handle the situation by themselves.


iAmTheTot

You have a lot of upvotes, so I'm probably gonna be the unpopular opinion here, but I think that's still shitty of you. Rather, it's especially shitty of your wife if she knew you were in the middle of something when she did that.


okdokke

i had this initial thought too, like it’s shitty to bail on your pals mid-sesh, but i’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they left out details for brevity’s sake. like, instead of just suddenly disconnecting the call without giving a reason or suggesting they wrap up, i’m assuming they did something like “hey guys it’s been good but it’s 1am, gettin kinda late so i think i’ll head to bed” and i imagine just got caught up on the end bits next sesh. of course, maybe they did actually just shut their laptop screen but i think most people aren’t that shitty


jdbrew

This is exactly what I did. “Hey guys, sorry, it’s 1AM my time and I was up early. I think I gotta call it.” Which, wasn’t totally false, but also wasn’t 100% true… eh… sorry guys.


jdbrew

You know, I absolutely agree with you. I was a total dbag for bailing. I’d be mad if any of my other players did that… but hey, I ain’t perfect, and I definitely don’t have much self control especially since I was drinking and already stoned… there was no way I could say no at that point


TaxMy

Sir/Ma'am, that's not bailing, that's just a side initiative that ran long!


Wamblingshark

Lol reminds me of yesterday when I was playing on Xbox and got invited to join some friends at the exact moment my wife hinted that she was headed to the bedroom and I should probably follow her. Ended up sending them a text saying my wife invited me to another room... But i probably just sounded like something that belongs on r/ihavesex .... Wait. I probably sounds like I belong on r/Ihavesex right now too.. damnit. In my defense I don't have it nearly often enough which is why I was so eager to bail on internet buddies 😂😭

Had a bot text me other day and I was like "I'm about to save my uncle in Ghost of Tsushima, leave me alone!" I mean it was like 8 am on a Saturday. Don't pretend you're visiting the city and some guy gave you a fake number. If you're up and making calls that early it wasn't that great of a night.


tsotate

Or you're still up because it was.

LuciusCypher

I've only recently realized I had an Instagram when I was cleaning my phone of excess apps. When I figured out my password and logged in, I had like 30+ conversations started by obvious bots, despite having never logged into Instagram since I made the account. It *really* doesn't matter how active your account is, bots will come after you.


goldkear

Hmm, now I'm thinking they might also be trolling for dead accounts to try and steal.


Torchic336

I answer every scam call I get for this reason alone, the way I look at it the longer I can distract them the less likely they are to scam someone. Don’t know how much it helps but it can be fun if you make it fun. The downside is I’ve been doing this for years and I’ve actually started getting less calls, I assume because of my ratio of time spent on the phone vs money earned, which is 0.


teeleer

Just for the record, I think we know which team this guy roots for. He has a sorcerer background which is default for sorcerer sheets on Dndbeyond

MrWrym

Ahhh yes. The half screen of DnDBeyond and Roll20. The days before owning a second monitor were always filled with clicking between screens.


TaxMy

To be fair, the second monitor exists, it’s just occupied by the video call.


VRTfreeman

Oh gosh I thought you meant bottoms until I realized it was a scam bot. I might be a dumbass.


RadSpaceWizard

"Sorry, say your name again?" shorts their circuits.


ninenines999999999

Heads up, if you hit the windows key and the left arrow on the dndbeyond window, you can align it with the roll20 window and play with the width of the windows so it shows all three columns on your character sheet within that pane, rather than having to swap back and forth and have the sorcerer background take up half the window. Have fun!


Skylar-Dreemurr

Either way that Map looks Pog. Probably better than what my Potato Computer can do.

Had a damn near identical conversation with a previous partner. She sent me a string of sexy photos and asked me to come over. I told her I was playing dnd... She sent a message expressly outlying how she wanted the night to go down, and how her kinks were a one time offer. I told her it's harder to find a consistent dnd group than it was to find a consistent partner... Shocker, we didn't last.


TheTinDog

LMFAO I mean, you aren't even kind of wrong, I've been with my DnD group for 9 years now and I can't imagine life without them! That's gonna be a bad break-up someday
