Gotta love it when one player doesn't explicitly state that they're going with the group and the GM makes them either get left behind or causes other shenanigans to happen.

No wait, did I say love? I mean hate with the passion of a thousand suns.

"solution"

from then on, describe in excrusiating detail what your character is doing
"ok, i lift my left leg, move it forward about a foot, then place it down. next i lift my right leg up, move it forward about a foot then place it down such that i start angling my body toward the door"

If you want a different perspective as GM; it's difficult when the party has to face a trapped door. You want them to say 'right, Atheldas turn the handle and step in' so you feel justified saying 'there was a trap, it is sprung!' rather than them saying 'right we all enter the room' and then the trap seeming cheap and hard to direct.

"DM Solution"

so long as your players go by the honor rule, you should be able to ask, "so, who stepped in first? Because you just got a face full of trap". If none of them admit to being in front, you can either go by the standard tank in the front path, or go by how the party was set up at the end of the last fight.

To be fair its not so much that they forgot that Cory never Zoro jumped ship with them as it is that they forgot Zoro was tied up and unconscious and thus unable to jump ship.

"Left Behind"

If a player misses a session, sometimes the DM rules that they stood whereever we ended last time, doing absolutely nothing. No matter how far the party travels.

"I pull the stick out of my ass and strike the officer in the head from behind."

"WHAT!?"

"You wrote here on my character sheet, a three foot stick up my ass. I pull it out and beat the officer to death with it."

"You're still back at the bar."

"Oh, in that case, I cast fireball into the cellar. Now can I be with the party, or do I have to go burn down a whore house?"

Actual quote from a session.

"Perfect Sense"

It makes perfect sense.

Also dick move all because they left Zoro behind because they did not explicitly say they carried him with them.

Also Gm is a decent game master but a bit mean at times.
Dm is the type I'd stop associating with especially with purpose building characters the way she does. Oh yes lets TPK my fellow players... I'm honestly expecting Arlong to be her character and its going to get her banned from the group.
With the twist of Robin no actually being a NPC controlled by Gm but via Dm who is sending him emails or texts.

Nah, that's just a DM who's pushing for a challenge. What you do with them, is make a character explicitly designed to stop bad things from happening. A min-maxed Dwarven Defender, a Force-Mage or Wall-Mage, that sort of thing. Or just a Character who's sole purpose in life is survival, if not helping others survive.

Push back against that sort of DM, not in 'player' but in Character, and you'll be able to make what were previously TPKs into a series of heroic narrow escapes.

The terrible DM is the one who starts a campaign with 'The world is being consumed by purple starfish that nobody knows anything about, in a Grey Goo scenario. What do you do?'

Bitter, me? Nah.

Find that one prestige class that lets you turn into a slime monster. If you can't beat the goo, join its powers to your own!

Actually I find that Robin (Factotum/ Master Brawler, as best I can figure) makes more sense as Rika's final character choice, as she will have decided that Vivi can't continue with her personal story finished. Just a working theory, though.

Look on the bright side Zoro - you get to keep all that combat XP for yourself.

Well, again, let's not be unfair to DM. This page doesn't show her cruelty either.

Remember, Zoro was unconcscious and he's tied to the mast. So in this case, freeing him would take some time, which would allow the fishmen to come closer before they retreated, which would make it harder for the 2 to escape or do whatever they're trying to do. Also, carrying Zoro would slow them down a bit.

My point is, just taking Zoro along is not an action which doesn't effect how other turns play out. In this case, I think it would be more unfair to say something like:

"fishmen caught you because you took a few seconds to untie Zoro and you move slower because you're carrying him"

"b-but, we didn't say we're taking him with us?"

"Silly, do you think I'm so cruel that I'd make one of you get left behind just because you forgot to mention it? I'm merciful."

I know that DM so far was portrayed as an asshole player who's also an exceedingly brutal dungeon master. But seriously, this page doesn't really have any proof.

Or I'm also a very cruel dungeon master and just very good at rationalizing that cruelty and my players are a bunch of masochists.

"Explosive runes!"

Even if it is GM, DM, I hate one thing and it is when someone else is saying that my character is doing! Ah, well. At least countering is easy if you have guts go eye for a eye. Wonder if someone has even tried something like that and succeeding?...

To be fair I think most people would have quit games with Dm as the player or Dm. She is not a nice person. And I get the feeling Arlong will be her next character. I am betting that will be a theme with her she will keep introducing people the group will defeat until she gets kicked out because they are fed up with her antics.
Again leading to the Robin idea

That or she will take over Sanji after enough of those antics have passed

Won't work.
with what we know about Luke, Cory, and GM had they wanted to kick DM out, they would have done it long ago. after that buddhist temple massacre thing, or the time her character turned to the dark side and killed the whole party.
I think she'll settle to assist GM in game mastering the campaign, so to make the ennemies he introduced OP enough to pose a problem to Luke or Cory. then at some point learn to be a better player and create a character who will not go PvP.

I don't like when i can't say myself what my character do.
the GM should let me roll, and decide what my character do accordingly to how good or bad i rolled.
