imagine if you woke up and your name was your url and you looked exactly like your icon
Hahaha, so true! I always get a good laugh out of these “imagine ____ your icon” posts. Apparently for this one, I’d be one being in two feline bodies?
You’d be one of the the really good witches, I suppose? Like so skilled you not only can take on cat form, but split your mind into two cats! You’d be like monoka for a questing group. :)
I’d be Mako Mori and named after an OC’s unfortunate taste in eyewear.
Me in High School. Does anyone want to deal with that? I don’t want to deal with that.
Most PC’s don’t understand that a GM will spend hours building a single quest so it will not only fit the campaign and characters, but also cover every conceivable contingency they can think of. Only for the group to exploit a minor loophole to force the GM to improvise in an attempt to salvage a crumbling session.
In other news, my new favorite threat is “if you do that again I will make you fight something with a proper name.”
That’s not so much “The Struggle” as it is “What it means to be a GM.”
It’s all improvisation. All of it. The second you think you are prepared, you have already lost.
Every single thing I’ve run, from Changeling LARPs to one-shots have been more or less on the fly.
Granted, playing NWoD gives me that license, but my version of GMing is having a vague plan or some sort of event in the narrative, gather the characters together, nudge them close to the event, and work from there.
Because at the end of the day, Tabletop RPGs are cooperative games.
james turning down every hogsmeade invitation by telling them he’s going stag
Sirius spreading a rumour that he has a cat just so when people ask him about it he can go, “Nah, I’m a dog person.”
Peter being loud so when a teacher chews him out, he can promise to be “quiet as a mouse”
Remus skipping meals so people can hear his stomach grumbling and he can apologise for being “hungry like the wolf.”
