Defenestration: The act of throwing someone or something out of a window, Dramatic Roleplaying Tournament, DRT, Gender-Bending, Hilarity Ensues, RetCon, Supernatural Couples' Therapy, Werewolves and Vampires and Mages--OH MY!, World of Darkness
Much to my disappointment, I was not able to run my beloved GLITCH again at RetCon III; this was due to a combination of factors, including a terrible time-slot, last-minute addition of the game to the schedule, and a bratty player walking out because he was unhappy with not one, but two characters I offered him.
By and by, in a normal DRT you take what you’re given and you play it, you don’t get to pick and choose. The only reason I offered him a second character was I NEEDED the last player to make the module work; his tantrum literally killed the module for everyone.
BUT, all was not lost, for while my first module fell apart, it meant I got to go sit down and bother my favorite GM, Mage Mistress.
She was running a game of WoD: Innocents and already had a Bully, Thief, Prankster, and Mixologist at the table. When he slid the remaining PC options over to me my eyes lit up with glee at the sight of the Hacker (I immediately thought of Alec Hardison).
And then I saw the other option.
Two words: Con Artist.
I was sold.
