Premise: I'm playing a courteous and professional burglar in a mixed (mage and human) nWoD campaign. I am one of two non-mages is a party of 5. I play the only sane character. My character has temperance as virtue and envy as a vice.

Situation: The other characters regularly abuse their power, fame, and status to the detriment of anyone unfortunate to be caught up in their mess. I play my character as both disgusted by their misuse of power and envious of their abilities. The situation is starting to drive my character crazy.

Question: Where do I go to from here?

Comment: I'm thinking of letting my voice of reason fade away and buy up our home-ruled version of the arcane merit, but that may not be the best/funnest role playing option.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Hi, Overthinks! Can you clarify your question a little bit? Are you looking for advice on how to play a character that's being driven crazy, or how to change the ways your fellow players play, or how to deal with being the one sane person in a troupe of madcap mages? Where do you want to be at the end? \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc Jan 10 '17 at 16:13
  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to RPG.se! Take a look at the tour; it's a useful introduction to the site. Unfortunately, help-me-with-idea questions don't really work as Stack questions. As a rule they result in a list of ideas with no obvious way for voters to tell which answers are better than others. This would need to be revised to be about solving a specific concrete problem to be answerable in our Q&A site format. Otherwise, you may just actually want a discussion forum instead of a Stack. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Jan 10 '17 at 16:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ Hello Jadasc. I am looking for suggestions on where to go to from here. My comment in the question was a possible direction I could take this role play idea, but I'm hoping that someone here could think of a more engaging direction to go with. I have no goal to this beyond some fun role playing. \$\endgroup\$ – Overthinks Jan 10 '17 at 16:31

    \$\begingroup\$ Gotcha. In that case, I have to concur with @SevenSidedDie in that this thing may not be right for our site. \$\endgroup\$ – Jadasc Jan 10 '17 at 16:34
