We have only your description of the situation to go by, and therefore we can't fully know the situation. However, what I gather from your description is that your behavior is a very significant part of this problem. You are enforcing your own tone on the game For starters, I recommend you to read about My Guy Syndrome, because it sounds like a significant ...

I am fairly newish to D&D. Our group plays every week and I have been a GM before. My character is fairly chill, chaotic neutral I very nearly stopped reading right there, literally at that exact point mid-sentence. Chaotic neutral alignment is infamous for being the primary classic excuse some people use for why their character causing problems for the ...

The problem isn't the group, nor your character ... ... but rather your choice to have your fun at the expense of their fun. Your character can only make decisions and choices because you, the player, make decisions and choices. You are not required to make a choice because of the dodge that goes along the line of 'that's what my player would do.' That ...

Your group is suffering from a blurring of the lines between in-game strife and real-world strife. Within the game, your character is acting annoying (playing pranks on the other PCs, sometimes doing things that could endanger their lives). Their characters are getting annoyed at your character as a result, which is realistic. This could be OK, but it can ...

Evidently Not One of the cardinal, if often unspoken, laws of gaming is that if you can't get people to play with you, then you can't play. If you can't get people to play with you whenever you bring that character in, then, no, you can't play that character at least with that group. If your read on the situation is correct, your group has a problem with ...

Chaotic character alignments can be a lot of fun to play with. I've played a bunch over the years and had tons of fun with it. They can throw a ton of interesting things into the mix and really spice up the play. Or they can end up stabbed in the back by their team and left lying in a ditch. OK to be fair I was prepared for that one. We'd already had The ...

You need to get rid of the character some way or the other Nothing will help. Your character, as it is right now, is irredeemably gone. You can't fix her in-game because nobody wants to play with the character anymore, so you're past the point of starting a growing-up/redemption arc now. [Sole chance out: you sit down with everyone and apologize for making ...

I have seen that most answers seems to be charging all the responsibility on the OP. And while it's through that we only see one part of the story, and while there are some hints that she may actually be doing something annoying, it cannot rest all on her side. So I'm going to take a more neutral stance. It seems clear that you three have different ...

Don’t ... play pranks on player characters. steal from player characters. attack player characters. sabotage the mission. It’s very rarely fun for anyone.

For a lot of people (myself included) Chaotic Neutral characters (or as a Dragon Magazine article once called them "Chaotic Everywhere") can be a huge pain in the butt, especially for people who enjoy a more serious or in-character game without constantly being pulled out of character or having immersion breaking things happen to them. (I wrote a ...
