I joined up a game on Roll20, and things are looking pretty solid, but one of the players is playing a Lawful Stupid Monk in Pathfinder. And I don't throw that term around a lot, either. The player is constantly going against reason in order to force everything to be his version of lawful, which seems to be as follows-
-No one is allowed to lie, ever.
-If a strategy to overcome a situation doesn't work, you are obliged to stick to that strategy.
-Improvisation is a bad thing.
-Punishment may only be dealt by any shmuck with a badge who looks sort of like a cop.
-Sneaking is not lawful.
-Only lawful people are allowed to intimidate. Otherwise, it's not right.
It has only been the first session but he's caused problems- It seems like he is trying to make decisions for the entire party, which wouldn't be so bad if they didn't contradict the party's own goals and motivations. Let me be clear here, the rest of the party aren't insane bastards either- we've got a NG Druid, my PC is a NG Rogue/Oracle, a LN Ranger, a TN Bard, and a CN Alchemist, who oddly enough. There was even a point at which the Ranger and the Druid were telling him to loosen up a touch. I don't have a problem with characters being strictly bound to a moral code, but he's playing in a way that directly impedes not only the story but everyone else's fun.
"Yes, I agree that this man should be brought to justice, but bringing a spell caster before the inquisition, (who burn non-sanctioned magic users as witches,) for stealing a crate of mining tools is too extreme. You must understand that the currently established Law is not always in favor of the people it governs. Wasn't your vow to help people in the first place?"
Moral of the story, make sure your PC has reason if they are lawful.
