It happens to be a succubus encounter.
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.
Not a bot.
***WHAT HAVE I DONE?***
Saved yourself from having to make a fortitude save?
I'm too much of a youngling to make that work.
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.
and if you say yes to them they send u a link to their profil to Chat because they arent much online 'here'
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
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.
"Click farms" returns [some interesting photos](https://i.imgur.com/Is6vVqA.jpg), but I couldn't find a video of somebody actively commenting.
I did find a [64-phone Pokemon Go player. ](https://i.imgur.com/5XCzoOh.jpg)
How the hell does he safely see where he is going?
That's the neat part, he doesn't.
Arceus guides him.
More like darkrai guides him
She was definitely looking for you to check out her only fans or looking for your Hangouts ID or something, you saved yourself a hassle
You my sir have succeeded a constitution save against the demon’s charms, and get the treasure it was guarding
It might have not been a bot, just a normal person trying to cat fish you
edit: lol sorry, I'm trans myself and I forget I can't joke with that word in most places. my bad
Be more mindful of the language you use in this sub. Thank you.
sorry, I'm trans and too used to throwing that word around with people who I know are chill with it. I apologize
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\*\*
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.
As a brit I'm a triffle miffed by this
Then you’re welcome! Self-deprecating humour is part of our national character, after all!
Now we're all going to be thinking about it
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.
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.
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.
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.
What is the reasoning behind setting up bots on Tinder or whatever?
What is the end game?
You can ignore her and the story ends; you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
Or you could respond and you stay in Wonderland and we can find out how deep the rabbit hole goes.
You can take the redpill and find out how deep the rabbithole goes. Or you can take the blue pill, which is MDMA, and then we can go to an EDM show and tag-team Trinity after
And 'ere I thought AIs were the ones getting redpilled...
well that sounds fun
Waiting for someone to post that XKCD strip of Cueball crushing both pills together and snorting them.
You can ignore her and the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
Or you could respond and the real story begins... you finally wake up in a cart heading through the mountains, after walking right into an Imperial trap...
you’re finally awake…
I spent way too long thinking “I don’t remember that part of Empire Strikes Back”.
crazy, i spent half of skyrim wondering where the storm troopers were.
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.
I have questions for your college friends...
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.
i love it when they say hi i am from college when i'm still in high school.
Your 4 parallel universes ahead
Can I make a perception check for the sauce?
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
I love animals.
What is the name of the first pet you ever had?
This redditor XKCD's.
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
Tell them that you will meet at *their* place, so you don't have to buy the ticket for them
# see them panic
...or get kidnapped
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
>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.
You send dick pick, they blackmail you for $
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.
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.
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.
CPA offers? Man, certified public accountants are getting that desperate for business?
My guess is to keep you subscribed and to sell Onlyfans accounts.
Looking for another player??
Same shit since the Yahoo Messenger days. Had pretty much the same conversation about 20 years ago, only I was playing Atomic Bomberman.
You just sent me on a deep Bomberman nostalgia trip!
this mad man really be playing D&D in Google Sheets.
tbh would give it a try if it meant getting away from Roll20.
I wasn't DM this session, but we've actually made Sheets work in a surprisingly successful manner (at least several sessions worth).
You laugh now, but Google Sheets works on phones. TTRPGs on the go!
Plus, the formulas help.
Have you seen r/owlbearrodeo ?
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.
Looks interesting! I'll give it a try!
Switch to foundry. Soooo much better than roll20.
So expensive though.
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.
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.
It's a one time purchase and then no subscription ever again if you're capable of self hosting.
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).
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.
Holy shit you're right, I gotta try that
I already use it for character sheets. Fucking hate roll20.
Foundry for life dude. Only your DM needs to purchase it. Everyone else just logs in via web browser.
... and still needs other sites to actually handle their characters.
...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.
oh sweet summer child
Like what, exactly?
Bruh. Why you texting when you should be rolling?!?! Lol
Thank you! I was looking for this comment. Get off your phone at the table.
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.
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
you closed the webcam right?
**you closed the webcam, right?!**
What do you mean? Your group doesn't like to watch the other players role-play?
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.
Doesn't mean we can't watch... I mean, it's what my character would do
I usually loathe that sentence... "I mean, it's what my character would do!"
This time though... I'm in agreement.
Imagine having sex with your so while your whole D&D party watches (edit: i meant the characters. Just to be clear)
Okay, have a nice day sir.
Hahaha yes. I actually just shut off the computer and followed her upstairs
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?
What is a top butok anyway?
As opposed to your *bottom* buttock
« Not OP but ok »
He replied to a question in a comment as if he were the one being asked.
Yeah, I know, I’m just intentionally misreading the name of the sub.
No top but okay
Ah. My bad, maybe use /s next time.
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.
Yes! Agree on both points. It’s also easier to try accents without everyone looking at you
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.
Tbf if it's your wife it's a completely different story.
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.
My wife won't do this because she's also in the session
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.
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.
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
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.
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
Sir/Ma'am, that's not bailing, that's just a side initiative that ran long!
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 😂😭
lol get a load of this guy who fucks /s
Well you have to take care of that when the opportunity comes around.
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.
Or you're still up because it was.
You know responding only confirms your number is real and gets you more bots, right?
It's Instagram, but the same principle probably applies. So the question is: was the meme worth it?>!Yes!!<
As a person who only got to enjoy the excellent meme without suffering any of the ill effects, I can say conclusively yes.
>!FORGET THE QUESTION MARK, TIME FOR AN EXCLAMATION . (See above)!<
>!Lol, I feel like I just read a choose your own adventure novel. I must continue the tradition that you have nobly laid forth. Before you stands a beholder, if you choose to fight the beholder, turn to page (https://www.reddit.com/r/startrekmemes/comments/oibfk0/those_sure_are_words_that_you_just_said/h50c1r1/), if you choose to reason with the beholder, turn to page (https://www.reddit.com/r/startrekmemes/comments/oibfk0/those_sure_are_words_that_you_just_said/h50czy7/), If you choose to reason with the DM, arguing that beholders don't actually 'stand', turn to page (https://www.reddit.com/r/startrekmemes/comments/oibfk0/those_sure_are_words_that_you_just_said/h50duu3/)!<
>!we love an interrobang‽!<
That’s Instagram, probably doesn’t really matter if they reply.
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.
Hmm, now I'm thinking they might also be trolling for dead accounts to try and steal.
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.
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
My first full caster, much like my team, took what he could get
How and where do people even get messages from sex bots like that? I wanna give cryptic eldritch answers to them.
The Art & Arcana book deserves better.
It was protected but don’t worry I have since moved it to a better place!
Girl, do you have any idea how hard it is to schedule a session these days?
Ahhh yes. The half screen of DnDBeyond and Roll20. The days before owning a second monitor were always filled with clicking between screens.
To be fair, the second monitor exists, it’s just occupied by the video call.
Oh gosh I thought you meant bottoms until I realized it was a scam bot. I might be a dumbass.
"Sorry, say your name again?" shorts their circuits.
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.
Either way that Map looks Pog.
Probably better than what my Potato Computer can do.
I love this right here man reading the comments too man
I am in COMBAT woman ffs!
"You're alone you like sex"
Dont you assume shit about me bot
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.
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
HES A MAN OF FOCUS, COMMITMENT AND SHEER FUCKING WILL
No, sheer D&D will, that's kinda the point
Nothing comes in-between me and DnD! NOTHING!
except >!minor confusing phone alerts!<
unless maybe a cluster of giant spiders? or a Dracula?
You just have to get them on instagram and start flirting with them, it's rather easy.
You open the door, I'm half naked, you're alone you like sex, roll initiative
Just curious since I’m new what the website for the map
My first guess was roll20 but when I zoomed in it looks like Google docs?
No idea how that works but looks cool
Nope I’m an idiot it is Roll20.
This needs the old and classic "I put on my robe and wizards hat"
NGL I love messing with these bots. It's fun.
your setup is amazing
Text isn't NSFW.
This is basically how every one of my characters tries to seduce a guard. “You like sex times, do you mind?” And, yes, charisma is always my trash stat…. Never ends well.
The bot liked your reply? They are evolving
THAT’S WHAT I’M SAYIN
What online program is that? My friends and I are looking for an online program and need recommendations
Omg that was great!
Quests before hoes
That's a computer program, calm down edgelord
Smite before byte?
Yo. Wait. Maybe I missed something somewhere in life. How tf is he playing table top dnd on a pc?
Missed a moment to say "send nudes"
Respect the- "I wish not to be horny, only happy..\*Rolls for Initiative\*"
*Silence wench, I do not wish to be horny anymore*
remember: bros before hoes
My thoughts on this are, just date within the community. They understand the importance of a game, they will probably wind up in a game with you, they'd probably be down for some post game fun, etc. So many perks
wait, if she's a bot, how'd she heart your "playing Dungeons and Dragons?"
why wouldn't a bot be able to heart answers to specific questions? Sure, it might look stupid in 1% of the cases, but in the other 99% it improves the effectiveness of the bot
Tell it to roll persuasion and see how it does
Did you roll initiative to fight the bot
