That's a lot like Friendly Comment Negator earlier in the thread; I'd say that one's a -5 point OPH, too.

I honestly used to know a person who liked to say things like this.

I used to know a couple people like that, too. The word I commonly use to describe people such as them is '******'. It's definitely more than a quirk.

Agreed. I'd probably call the whole category "OPH: Whiplash Comments."

Actually it sounds like an alternate Influenche Schtick PERK (To Disarming Smile Power Ups 2: Perks p.15) that constitutes making a diplomacy roll to attempt to negate the boorish behavior.

No, not really. How is it a minor benefit for your character to have a compulsion that sometimes ticks people off and sometimes has no effect?

Unless you mean he should get the full -5 points for the OPH, then can take a perk allowing him to make a Diplomacy roll to avoid the reaction penalty. That's probably fair, but rather complicated.

A gaming buddy of mine used to always call me (at work, yet) "s***head." I eventually mentioned to him that I took that to mean he thought I was an idiot, and he looked surprised. He thought he was merely speaking "colorfully."

He later told me, completely matter-of-factly, absolutely hair-raising stories of his childhood. (His father was a two-meter tall violent alcoholic.) I eventually realized he had the absolute thickest skin of anyone I ever met; no wonder.

Don't know if anyone would want to model any of that in gameplay terms, but people who toss casual insults aren't always jerks, sometimes they're just used to that and worse...

I have "Finds it mildly distasteful that when he talks about liking RPGs people think he's talking about a computer game" myself. :)

Mea culpa :o I should know better, considering where I am. Of course I meant the computer games originally based on RPGs that share the title out of convenience.
