Rob's not meant to be a bad guy. Just... impulsive. Unfortunately, that impulsiveness doesn't always coincide with being a good team player. And some people have a different way of adapting around that than others.

Very relatable on both sides of things.

Take what happened with Rob but remove the "cool" bits, including a positive resolution, and I've been that guy in the group.

I've also been in Terry's shoes.

Glad it came across as such. On the one hand, Rob absolutely derailed the intended story, and he unquestionably started scheming behind everyone else's backs once he realized that he'd inadvertently implicated himself as one of the campaign's "villains". And it's definitely not the first time he's pulled something similar, though probably not quite to the same scale.

On the other hand... everyone else let him. The GM put it to a vote, and everyone agreed to let him run a build that was not meant for this story, Terrence included, and with that I think there comes an implicit agreement to accept the twists and complications that come with it. Clark and Gwyneth even managed to exploit it for their own gain, Clark to flush out the other culprit, and Gwyneth for insane amounts of money. And while Terrence doesn't have any obligation to stick around for a game that isn't what he thought, he definitely could have communicated the problems better up until now.

If nothing else, it'll definitely have an impact on how Rob sees Rhodey as a character going forward, because you'd better believe I'm not leaving War Machine out. XD
