    I think the GM is in the wrong here, partially. It's okay to roll up any race, but there should be a reaction appropriate to your race from locals. From a predominantly human realm and if you're an especially strange creature, you could expect some discrimination.

    However, the GM should have given you an OOC warning before submitting your character, instead of wasting your time.

      I love the "the guard/shopkeeper turned out to be a high level adventurer" trope, it's such a sign of bad DMing.
      Not town or city guard should be stronger than a lvl 3 fighter, and even then that's rare, the captain or something. Guards pose a threat due numbers/consequences rather than being all that powerful by themselves. They're town guards.

        I've used it only once myself, but that's because it was in a magical flying city and the shop was literally selling high powered magical artifacts the shopkeep wizard made as a hobby and it was made blatantly clear the dude was more than an ordinary shopkeep with the repeated and casual use of high level magic he was doing while the PCs were browsing.

        Dickass thief still tried to rob him.

        just like a lot of tropes, it can work if it's done well.
        If the DM makes the fat shopkeeper go from buffon to pouncing ubercharger in one round, that's clearly bullshit.
        If it's setup that the shopkeeper used to be an adventurer; that's both a warning not to fuck with the guy and an opportunity to ask him things a normal shopkeeper wouldn't know and maybe try to pull favors

        I was in a game once where I tried to convince a general store shopkeep to give us a discount on a bulk purchase before we set off to a nearby dungeon. For context this is some rustic, rural village with <1000 population. I explain that we'd advertise this guy's wares to other adventurers, and that we'd come back for more business, all truthful things. I don't even get to roll persuasion the DM just decides all shopkeepers are video game NPCs who are hard coded to only sell goods at PHB prices and can never be convinced to even throw in a free torch even with a 100 gp purchase.

        I decided to cast Charm Person on the shopkeeper so I could attempt to finagle a discount, and the visibly upset DM ruled that, before my character could even finish the casting, the shopkeeper had looked at me, realized I was casting a spell, realized I was casting a spell at him, realized I was casting an enchantment spell at him, and he had vaulted over the countertop (not difficult terrain, no acrobatics check needed) and he was sprinting out the door and towards the nearest town guard while yelling for help. He was also far enough away that I could not possibly target him with the spell (even though I had 40 move speed and the shopkeeper was a halfling)

        Meanwhile I run a game where the party finds much glee in setting businesses on fire if the business owner pisses them off. And I'm all for it. I don't give a shit. Do what you want.

              It sounds like they don’t know how to make shops. Small towns have nothing of value while shops with worthwhile wares have top tier security. But dnd absolutely has the most broken magic spells that can screw up any interaction, so it certainly doesn’t help

      God. How awful. I could feel the scene. I’m fine goblins or drow or whatever being treated with suHispanicion. But it shouldn’t take over the game. A good DM can find a talk off or excuse for the town to be willing to be civil for their benefit.

        The thing that pisses me off the most was how he tricked me into going into the town in the first place with the two guards then doing everything in his power to fuck me over. As mentioned before the only reason why I survived was because the DM's pet wanted to save me. This wouldn't be the first or last time he tried to fuck me over.

      It’s not even a bad idea to add an attack or attempted arrest from an overzealous/goblin hating town member.

    If you speak true why would you think this board would care and show pity for you? Regardless if you're kobold cleric was represented by pic related or one of the lewd descendants of the cutebold most anons of this board would choose to deride you either delving into another repeated discussion about the depictions of kobolds in folklore and TTRPGs, why to even bother with using non-human races when compared to the dynamic nature of humans, and of course furfags regardless if there was any concrete reason to summon them other than a picture of a beastman being posted. I don't have much to say about your kobold cleric being in an OSR game, assuming you did partake in a game anyways as we all have reasons to doubt your few words as OP, maybe there's a supplement out there that permitted it or the fellow running your game was more lenient about what races players could choose but when discussing OSR here most will only think of the "Big Four" and mentioning playing any other race will arouse suHispanicion and usually just result in the aforementioned deriding of your person.
