A few weeks ago, I started a new campaign with some newer players, and for the most part they jumped directly. They may need a strategy job, but they do it well (partly because I sent them monsters with equally bad tactics.) However, one of my players does not seem to take the game seriously or consider his character's actions they should be their own, instead of the actions of the person who controls them.
The player in question is a guy I will call Will for privacy reasons. Will had tried to play the most daring character they could understand, a Vampiric Blood Hunter. I was able to dissuade them from this, since I have no experience with race and class. So Will decided to play one of the most stereotyped CN blushers I've seen. Now, this is not the main problem with Will's character. The biggest interruption of the table is Will's character. trying to seduce all the male characters we found by failing the controls of charisma and, in general, ruining all the social gatherings of the party with cursis phrases and strange and / or explicit references to pop culture. Every time we go into combat, Will is almost always sleeping and, if he isn't asleep, he doesn't try to help his own group in any way. An example was when the party camp was attacked by a band of silly bandits, and Will's character stayed inside the cart with his dog, instead of going out to inspect the obvious sounds of the fight members and shout .
They have not really complained directly to me, but there are generally a lot of appeals to that player to "not do that." For example, when the player hid in the car for no reason, the player's other characters constantly shouted for Will's character to come to help, more and more annoying, and there are generally groans when Will decides to try to seduce. something.
I want Will to be more constructively involved in the game, but it seems he doesn't want to take the game seriously in the slightest, burst into laughter for half an hour in the middle of the game and talk about things that are completely ruled out. context I don't know what to do about it, but I don't want to kick Will since his sister and his friends are in the group, and that can damage his self-esteem.
