    I think in D&D terms, a Mary Sue (or Gary Stu) would actually be when a munchkin makes the game all about them.

    This is just an interesting character with a silly name.

    Barnabus – Taken from Urban Dictionary, hope it helps.

    A Mary Sue is a character who is so perfect that he or she warps the world around them to display their perfection. It seems as though nothing in this universe except Mary Sue is even real, and is instead a plot device to make Mary Sue seem flawless and loved. A Mary Sue can destroy a piece of writing or media, since the characters existence will often forcibly make the world and people around them defy logic to simply display how amazingly radiant they are. The term is meant to describe any and all characters that seemingly warp reality simply to display their perfection, but some people do use terms such as “Marty Sue” or “Gary Sue” as a male nickname for a Mary Sue. It’s also important to know that in an attempt to make a character seem less Sue-ish, authors will often give their Mary Sue a “flaw” that is actually just a stale trait in disguise. This has lead to many different sub genres of the Mary Sue, thigh all are just as boring and cliche as the original.

    “Man, this character is so annoying! It seems like everyone else is out of character just because she exists!”
    “Bro, she’s probably a Mary Sue.”

    The Mary Sue trope comes from a Star Trek fanfic parody about a 15.5 year-old ensign who takes over the Enterprise in two paragraphs, saves the whole crew in the third, runs the ship again in the fourth, and dies tragically in the fifth. A Sue has a singular character trait (maybe two, if the author wants him/her to have a “weakness”). Aside from their status as the universe’s “chosen one”, along with whatever powers that affords them, they have the incredibly meta ability to make the entire story about them; this ability can subvert the laws of physics, the laws of reality, the laws of psychology, and the laws of good writing. A magical, charismatic character with Protagonist hair is not automatically a Sue… but is close enough to start making jokes about it.

    @Jaikula I’ve always heard it being Gary Stu. XD
    I kinda start to see how he gets called Mary Sue instead.

    Is the first name of Mr E’yasu “Gar’yt? Because then he would also be a Gary Stue.

    @Zaradannasr- possibly, or he might be dragging in Lovecraftian lore at that point lol.

    It took me a lonnnnng time to figure out that I wasn’t supposed to pronounce it “Mary Sue,” but that it was just an anagram. Whoops. “Mystery Asu? Wut?”

    I thought Joel was playing the warlock. Did I miss seeing Darren at the table? Personally, I like the color-changing hair. BUT, the big question is: Does it continue to change color while under the influence of spells such as Alter Self, Disguise Self, and the like?
