However, like any other large highly-focused and welcoming group, this can often be a magnet to attract a select smaller group of personalities who - as described in TFT as: Prootwaddles - can make the whole interaction unpleasant for others, with "quarrelsome and unruly" behaviors, or, who just seem to hang-around with the sole purpose and motivation of arguing for the point of arguing - like those guys who seem to always show up at a party and ruin the enjoyment for everyone else, work very hard at purposefully misconstruing and inventing drama, issues, and offense, where none is present; or routinely begin most conversations with: "I disagree".

And Prootwaddles can appear anywhere, alone and in groups; ever been to your local Barber Shop, or the United Nations?

Everywhere. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLlv_aZjHXc

Hi Ecz,
The SCA stands for the "Society of Creative Anachronism" where people do the Middles Ages the way that they should have been. You can become a peer by fighting, doing arts and sciences or by service.

I've never used Prootwaddles either -- for many of the same reasons adduced here. Also, they always seemed likely to completely destroy the "suspension of disbelief" that I always strive for in my campaigns. How can anyone take your fantasy campaign seriously with Prootwaddles in it? ;-)

I like them as the TFT equivalent of D&D gully dwarves... I've had one player play one.

How did that go? I'm genuinely curious here -- since I could never bring myself to permit them in my world! ;-)

Our GM used Prootwaddles as more of a nuisance creature. They were sometimes encountered on the way to an adventure, or during a town situation. Actually, my favorite nuisance creatures were Children. Pesky little rock throwers!!!!

Yours, ...just yours,
