Just your average computer junkie, fiddling with C# and such. :)

comment How should a GM deal with players that want to be “too cool”?
@JoãoMendes Ahh, I see. Well, to some extent I agree with you. But at the same time, if a DM is to be treated as equal, one has to weight the fun of the group vs the fun of a single person. But if this is just the DMs problem with that particular player and type of behaviour, then I'd wager there's only one solution: to talk with the player and / or group about this.

@JoãoMendes I'm inclined to agree with you if the other players merely "tolerate" the actions of the "cool" guy, because in this scenario things can be improved. But what if they actually like the way he shows off? In this case, removing this element will, on the whole, make the sessions less fun for the whole group.

I do like this answer, especially since the other players at the table don't seem to mind the "cool" player. Perhaps they're enjoying it as much as he is?

comment Is there a good way to distribute pregenerated characters?
This is too short for an answer all on it's own, so a comment. Giving out full descriptions might indeed be lengthy... but if your characters are indeed "archetype" characters, you can just use that. So, describe the characters by their archetypes and the players should have a fairly good idea of what each character represents without going into too much detail. Five people should be able to get along and pick an archetype which fits them without much trouble after that.

@TimothyAWiseman That might work in a general sense but my character isn't all that dexterous - he's more likely to shoot himself in the foot.

comment Which Necromancy Path would make my Giovanni more effective in combat?
Rituals are excellent, but they aren't readily available in combat. Call of the Hungry Dead, for example, takes an hour to cast and requires hair from the target. Eyes of the Grave is probably when anticipating a fight with a particular enemy, but it still not useful in a fight itself. Baleful Doll additionally is a difficult roll and is based on Crafts, which my character doesn't know.

Just to be sure I understand: would my character need to use Haunting or is Compel Soul enough? The general idea is sound, but for actual combat we tend to stick to written down rules.

Never did I ask for a complete overhaul of my character, merely if there is a boost I could easily acquire via disciplines. Also, while combat will most likely remain infrequent on the whole, when it does show up it tends to take a lot of time (and it's not fun sitting idly). Given all that your answer is just not very good, even if your intentions were. ;)

Just out of curiosity - can a corpse be prepared and animated in such a fashion that it could follow a character around and not cause too much suspicion in mortals? That WOULD be a good, and disposable, bodyguard. Otherwise, as far as anticipation goes, I'm at the mercy of the story teller.
