Help with steering the party after a player railroaded the session

2022.01.19 13:39 jellyking813 Help with steering the party after a player railroaded the session

Looking for some advice from more seasoned DMs than myself here!
I recently got a group together in our local community and offered to DM RotFM, no one knows one another but everyone seems ready to have fun, and a mix of experience levels. I made it clear that we would start with some little quests as we get to know one another and make sure everyone is having fun, then we can dig deeper. We just had our first session (not session 0) where I tried to introduce the Cold Hearted Killer quest to kick things off.
Here's my issue: one of the players (more experienced) has completely railroaded the party and essentially wasted a session. She chose to hassle the NPCs for info on Chardalyn (which is tied into her backstory), and did so in such a way that none of the other players were able to interact with NPCs. For example: we entered in the Northlook Inn, she ran up and leapt onto Scramsax, clinging to him like a koala and refusing to leave until he gave her the information she wanted, which of course, he doesn't have. She's chosen to play a very childlike character with a nomadic background, so she's just ignoring all social norms. All of my attempts to get her to focus her attention elsewhere, or the other players attempts to approach her or any other NPCs got pushed aside and she would NOT take the hint to knock it off. An entire 3 hour session got turned into all of us trying to play a game around this character, and as such they didn't get very far at all (no one had a chance to talk to Hlin as all attention was on the weird girl harassing the bartender).
Going into session 2 this weekend I'm hoping to have a better way to handle this playecharacter! I thought perhaps an aggressive NPC not taking kindly to her might kick off a fight and scare her? Maybe she draws the attention of Duregar and they arrive to scare the daylights out of her (hell, maybe they kidnap her for a session or two haha)? I'm trying to find a way to handle it without straight up saying: please just let us get through this quest first, and without a fight that will kill off her character... Which is likely since they're level 1 and at this point no one else in the group would bother to stand up for her / fight with her.
Any advice? Should I just roll with it? Or pull player aside before the session and ask that we put a pin in it for now?
Thanks in advance folks!

2022.01.19 13:39 psychonautgrind [QUESTION] Why does my guitarist friend always change his timing away from the rest of the band?

I'm a bassist (I know a little guitar), and one of my friends has this strange habit that no other jammers I jam with has. He'll come jam, and set his tuning to something completely different than the rest of us. I was in EADG on bass, the lead guitar was on EADGBE, but he twisted his knobs until he was in a completely different range; it was my guitar, and checking the tuning the next day had me so confused, because they were all over the place; halfway between a C# and a D on one of the strings. This dude is the most experienced musician of all of us so I don't want to just stop playing with him, but he cannot seem to help wanting to play something totally contradictory to other parts in the song, rather than what could be complementary. Is this a normal thing for very experienced musicians, or am I correct in thinking he is setting himself up to not flow with the rest of us? I'd like to think he's simply doing things too advanced for the rest of us to follow along with.

2022.01.19 13:39 rtuckr92 Why didn't the prisoners ask their family members to help Jimmy?

The prisoners all said that the system was so cruel to leave old, demented Jimmy out in the street like that. But if any of them really cared about her, they could've easily called a family member and asked them to help Jimmy at least get some proper care. I know many of them came from troubled backgrounds, but someone more well off like Piper or Nicky could have easily asked for help from their relatives.

2022.01.19 13:39 BrainSweetiesss Good DN cities in Southern/Eastern Europe?

Hi there!
Last night I thought I might like working remotely from somewhere in Croatia for two weeks or so. Doing a 5 min research I saw that Zagreb is a nice and cute little city, with super friendly people apparently and not that expensive. I think this trip would cost me around 500 euros flying from NL + airbnb. Then I thought maybe other cities in Croatia had better things to offer for a similar price and better weather even so here I am trying to decide where to go.
Would you guys recommend Zagreb? Or would you say Split and the other big ones would be better and not that much expensive? Maybe I shouldn't even go to Croatia and explore Slovenia /Slovakia or other countries in the region? I don't wanna go to extremely touristy places though, that's why I think a city like Dubrovnik might not be an option.
I'd love some advice! Thanks.

2022.01.19 13:39 daisysimmons what if i forget to stop my exercise?

i‘m on a weight loss journey and so i obviously rely on the burnt calories count of my inspire 2 a bit. i know it‘s not exact, but if i forget to stop my workout for 20-40 minutes after, does it count more calories than i‘m actually burning? can i just forget the number on my watch or does it count the correctly, seeing as my heart rate goes down and everything?
