Very groovy game of Unhallowed Met again this week
anewbiegm in the driver seat this scenario.
We’re all showing our intense distrust of any employer in London.
Considering the poopy connection destroyed the post I made, I’m just going to lazily reblog thewenglishwarlock's summary of the session.
I think it sums it up pretty well tbh.
On an additional note, I’ve roped it these unfortunate guys and gal to take part in some Only War fun that’s been rattling around my brainbox for a while now.
I’m interested to see how the idea is received, not so sure about the execution of it yet.
Once this Unhallowed Metropolis fun is finished we’ll see how that goes.
Started introducing usmelinuk to the fantastic series Unforgotten Realms, never have I seen one person shake their head in despair so many times.
I’m starting to worry the neighbours will call the police with things like;
"Why hasn’t he just killed him already", "I’d have killed that asshole by now", "OH. MY. GOD!".
I’ve not seen this for ages and if there are any repercussions for this, I totally blame thewenglishwarlock and Dark Heresy’s Cain for introducing me to it.
Man, this looks so cool.
When I’m thinking about slinking back to the Lord of the Rings Online, counting my cash and eyeing up The One Ring this is exactly what I want to see thrown into the mix.
Currently having some internet issues so that might cause a few problems with tonight’s Skype game of Unhallowed Metropolis.
Aside from that… the random story I’ve thrown together might be the bigger source of problems tonight.
This is either going to be a lot of fun or annoying beyond all belief… a fine line.
So I just sent out an email to the 7 players in my new Pathfinder campaign I mentioned previously. Of those 7 players, 4 are girls and 3 are guys. While most of the girls have played one-shot adventures here and there before, only my wife has been in a long-term game before.
I had to send them an email introducing them to roleplaying & Pathfinder, as well as to my campaign specifically. Lots of folks were really interested in my campaign idea, so I thought I’d share the message I sent out to get the ball rolling…
This actually sounds amazingly awesome. I’d totally play this game.
Or you know… rip it off… whichever.
I am 110% for this idea. I do it myself!
As I am a Forever GM (patent pending), I find myself behind the screen a lot of the time. That being said, I’m having more fun than I know how to deal with being a player in Edge of the Empire.
Swapping seats lets more people play, and lets more players become GMs. I honestly believe both of these things to be great and important for any long-term group, in that players understanding the difficulties of being a GM is healthy, and GMs understanding the effects of limitations on players is healthy.
It also lets people try different systems and find their own “voice”, something which I will never stop preaching the benefits.
Do this thing! It is a good thing.
As the man says, it’s a great idea and takes a lot of the burden of the GM for weekly games.
Currently thewenglishwarlock and I are rotating GMing a series of adventures/investigations for Unhallowed Metropolis - I say it every time it gets brought up but it’s a game definitely worth checking out - I think it’s been going pretty damn well. It’s nice to get a break from GMing and sometimes even playing just to run something that’s been buzzing around in your head for a while.
Depending on how much
of a bastard intrigue you and your co-GM(s) like, you could even co-ordinate certain events to happen.
This system is working so well that both Grendal - from the Dark Heresy group - and usmelinuk who both hate GMing have mentioned the possibility of having a go at it in the future.
I was terrified the first time I ever ran anything, I got a small group of
masochists willing volunteers and had a crack at it, already having a group, some understanding of the system and the style of play that people enjoy would have made me so much less nervous: running a game in this manner could be a great way for someone to make the jump from player to GM.
