A wise God of Mischief said it best (or I guess, will have said it best? Maybe?): "How will your friends have time for me, when they are so busy fighting you?"

Intraparty scheming can be a group's worst nightmare, and a GM's best friend. Although it also helps to make your villain such a bumbling doof that no one can wrap their head around him being anything other than a nuisance.

Heh, intraparty scheming is what adds zest to gaming. ;)

Yeah, you tend to hate it when you're the one being schemed again, but the gaming experience tends to be somewhat hollow without at least a friendly rivalry between players. Frankly, verisimilitude falls short without it happening at least on occasion.

Plus, sometimes it is better for you to "reality check", "challenge", etc. your fellows than to leave your GM feeling like they need to do it for you.

I've told the story before, so the short version: our party decided to be stupid and have a drinking contest at a time when we were all known to have money. Before the GM can punish us for being stupid, I put my own plan into motion. My character bought the 1st round (the cheap stuff), then took a dive in the contest. Thanks to everyone being so hung over the next day, I can con two fellow PCs, one the leader of our party, into "paying me back" for money I'd loaned them during the contest. The leader even was grateful because I'd spared him public embarrassment (convinced him he'd forgotten his money). The player knew it was a lie, but not his character. :D The only other character I decided to hit up was so out of it, he just threw the nearest object to him at the source of the "noise" (me knocking on his door) trying to wake him up.

The nearest object to him was his coin purse with all of his recent pay.

Which sounds horrible of me, but IIRC, the GM later confided in me that if I hadn't, he was going to have someone else rob and/or fight us while we were so drunk.

Plagiarism- the practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own.

ETT #10) Dom will betray the party and try to murder them all with the Hammer drones when he realizes that with Tony gone, he can become the next Iron Man, and with Gwyneth gone, the government can take over Stark Industries with no opposition. He will rise through the ranks of the military, and when defense drones are commonplace, he will use their secret backdoors to take over the world.
