Thoughts on Worlds for GMs. IE. Damon's talking about game mastering again.
I was doing more work for a Iron Kingdoms game I'm running, working on world building the game. Deciding on how I wanted to run things along with the canon storyline. Where I wanted to start the players out now that they are getting out into the world. So now that my jumbled thoughts are running circles around my brain, I thought I'd put them all on here to see what everyone thought of them.

Cut for the uninterested in GM thingsCollapse )

Because I felt like writing more of this.
That's right folks. Yet another 'advice for GMs' section of live journal. This time due to two things, first is a game that I'm running that I GM'd last time and the second being a talk I had with the woman that I married. Both had good things come up, but I think they are things to talk about.

Since its been awhile, I'm giving the same warnings here I did last time. I will be watching the comments so please feel free to have discussions, but I was discussions not flame wars. I'm leaving this open like the last one so if you want to show it to people feel free, I want other points of views that are different. That's how you get better as a GM. Again keep in mind this is all my opinion and observations based on more than a decade of gaming in different forms.

So...without further wait...

FITE!! CONFLICT!! OTHER ASSORTED PUNCHY WORDS!!Collapse )

More Cutscenes! Because of...well you know...
Alright. Because I like my little lovecraftian things every so often. I give you all the inside of my poor laid-up characters head while he's in the hospital.

On the subject of GMing...
Alright, since my last post was on Railroading a plot I feel the need to do a bit of a followup. More post, more stuff from a GM's point of view. So now...

Things to think onCollapse )

AN EXCELLENT IDEA!
Alright, The wonderous Shadra has brought up a point that is good and truthful.

Masks.

Some people might want to make them. So. To that end I give you some sites that might help!
For Tutorial! http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Leather+Mask+making+tutorial#/dor1n3
And for actual leather.
http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=§ion=&q=Leather+Mask+making+tutorial#/dor1n3
(I am told 4 oz weight is the best, and must be vegetable dyed leather)

Any other questions, comments, death threats and well wishes can be left here and I'll try to get answers for them! Also, if you like I can offer other alternatives to leather. XD

I LIVE! ...and this this is actually on to. Ain't that awsome.
Alright! I'm back, I'm tired, and I'm at a decent enough connection at the moment...sooooo...I shall POST! Or something. Mostly something. Basicly this is me saying that I'm still around, that I'm feeling better, and that I had a firkin awsome time at Jen and James's place. Thanks for the both of them, though one of them SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS! Needs to stop payin for everything! Regardless though, it was an awsome trip, which I much needed. I even met..*GASP* NEW PEPOLE! Even if it was only one day.

Also. Trick missed the unicorn balloon that was the size of Nebraska. This was amusing.

Amy did a good enough play by play of our time there, and she was the photographer as well, which was awsome. So this is just me saying YAY! VACATION WAS GOOD! And of course...posting what quotes I remember. Most of them were due to a short, fuzzy headed girl, that was only there one night. ^____^ She'll kill me for that description I'm sure.

Oh. And James. Cause he's a pillow-licker.

WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!Collapse )

To sum it all up though. I do have to take the quote from our hostess.

Best Decent Into Drunken Stupidity Ever

Thanks guys. And gals. And other assorted things and lobsters.

....yeah.
Right! Once more unhappy headsupness. I might be entirely unavailable for the meet up in Dallas. Yes yes, I know, I'm excited and all about it but my granddad might be back in the hospital again, and at the moment I'm not even sure I'll be home for Christmas. Lovely song that. Also in the news, this means that I've been entirely distracted for weeks and all those nice christmas cards(which I'm highly thankful for) and presents(which go under the tree) are welcome...but all the ones I have for YOU lovely people(YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE) shall be delayed.

I'm still gonna try ta make it ta Dallas, but if I don't you all better understand or I'll hit you with a stick and leave for in the back yard for my 3-legged dog to burry. Love and Kisses! <3 <3 <3

Alright! Too proove I'm alive among other things~
Ok! This post here is to proove that I still know how ta update this damn thing, and to tell all the people that I suprised by running off last night that I'm still fine. ^^ So is my grandfather, who we took ta the ER last night, hence the reason for my sudden absence. I would like to say that it was FIRKING COLD last night as well, and there was ice...ICE...the substance that causes most Texan drivers to loose approximately 30-50 IQ points while driving. Anyway, I'll spare all the gory details since I'm sure someone out there is eating and just say that he's feeling much better, and is at the moment in the clinic in Temple. I'll be off towards there shortly, and it might be touch and go again for the next few days seein me online, but all is good, its just a long drive ta Temple from Waco and I'll be busy. I'm fine, Clay is fine, Mom is fine, and Pops...well he'll be fine once we get him out of the hospital.

In other news, Magna Carta is PRETTY, Jade Empire still kicks ass after all this time, Shining Force-Neo isn't all that bad, Fire Emblem is HARD cause I have ta actually keep everyone alive, and nameing a Ninja 'Ryu' in CoV apparently boots his coolness factor by a power of 10 and I think I'm hungry. I should fix that.

Also:
I am 72% Video Game Addict.
I have a Video Game Problem
Video games are a big portion of my life, maybe too big of a portion. They are not a means of social interaction, despite what I might think. I should just go outside.


...who is really suprised?

The good with the bad...
Right! Good news! The twin knights in Suikoden IV (Cause there are ALWAYS twin knights) are really PIRATES. This is even cooler, cooler like cool stuff. Because there...you know...pirates...yeah. I mean the only way they could be better is if they were pirate kender ninja zombie hunting jedi mages...but that would never happen anywhere else than my head...which is quite fuzzled at the moment

Bad news! ...for those that care...my World of Warcraft account was pirated sometime this morning, kicking me off. When I was finally able to log back on I found my character of lvl 40 goodness...naked except for his weapons and with a grand total of 16 copper to his name. Yes. I got jacked. Hard. And they didn't even kiss me afterwards.

This is teh suck.

And now after that I think I shall sleep.

I blame lack of sleep.
Well not so much BLAME lack of sleep, more I attribute it to the dream I had. Well it wasn't really a dream...just...a vision. Of something that looked cool, or at least it looked cool in my head...and I shall share with all of you so that you may decide! I'm still running on 4 hours sleep (thanks to family getting me up) so I shall name that the cause of any oddness in this (compleately random) post!

The vision was...Videoland in the 50's.

...so maybe I'm the only one amused so by this...but Helena and her ninja clan posing as mobsters (pinstripe suits and tommyguns, around a car...but Ryu still had a sword...go figure) with Hel as the mob boss amused me greatly. As did the image of the air pirates done up the same...(Gil, May, Clara, Ruby, Vyse...May of course posing on the roof of the car...I never said it made sence!) Then Li, Ryu, Ken, and Jin dressed like the cover of The Untouchables movie...she looks good in a suit. There were others too, but I'm still so sleep fogged I can't remember really. ^____^ Now though I go ta game and play KOTOR II...must, get, LIGHTSABERS! ...there shiney.

HA!
Yes yes I still live, WoW hasn't taken over my WHOLE soul, just parts of it.

Anyway, those of you who are comin ta the meet thingy, and stayin in the rooms I have, the info shall finally go out tonight. This weekend I was driving people too and from places, doing crazy stuff, and playing WoW...so yes, stuff slipped my mind...however I did develop(In my sleep deprived and half mad state) Two theories that I believe to be correct!

1) The Paper-Trail theory: Now, all have heard the word 'That guys got issues' right? Well...I have developed a scale to measure the issues that one has! From lowest to highest thease stages are...

Pamphlets-Articles-Mags-Issues-Subscriptions-News Stands-Volumes-Bookcases-Libraries-Publishers-Printing Presses-Library of Congress

Or course since this progression was thought up on caffine and sleep dep, I could be wrong...suggestions welcome. >D

2) The Krispy Kreme theory: Developed after buying suger-coated goodness to keep me up after a drive.

One Krispy Kreme doughnut - Mmmm...good...
Two Krispy Kremes - Filling...
Three Krispy Kremes - Full.
Four Krispy Kremes - Bad.
Five Krispy Kremes - DEAD
Six........SIX BEAUTIFUL KRISPY KREME DOUGHNUTS AH HA HA!

...right so the last part of that wasn't part of the theory, but it had to be done.

Now though, I return you to your regularly scheduled...stuff. Such are the ideas that float through my head when I'm driving back from Austin at midnight...that and the moon looked like something from Sleepy Hollow...hrmmm...I think I'll rent that movie tonigt...

An...UPDATE! *GASP*
Yes yes it is indeed an update! On what happened last few weeks and last weekend, well last few weeks have been...busy to say the least. I'm through though! So now its time to rest and plot for the end of December! That and get pictures...I got stuff at RenFest that I went to this weekend that make me happy. Finally broke down and bought a leather tricorn hat, and a red and black cloak(For Hector!)gonna -try- ta do armor, even if thats nuts, I'm gonna try!

And now...World of Warcraft has stolen my SOUL! Well at least leased with option to buy, I'll be happy to share the addiction with anyone that wants ta see it, provided they'll come to Waco...because I am sadly without a laptop. Now though, as the beta ends...five days early...gonna be feenin for the game when it comes out...I think I shall sleep...or RP...or find some ice cream! Something like that. ^___^

Now, I go, to play my lvl 22 Hunter on last time...poor Fangs, I only got ta train him up 5 levels before it ended...he was a good pet...I shall let him eat some Orcs before he goes!

An...update...or something. ^_^
Right, random things that happened, just because I can! First off...the world is too dang small! I went to a holloween party this weekend, and found out that some of the people there knew some of the same people I did...amused me, but hey, running on little sleep quite a bit can amuse you, though I do have to say thanks to the host and hostess of said party, because it was fun. ^^

Second off, The Bard's Tale gets extra points for yet another reason...zombie sheep. Beebo's cousins make an apparence.

Third, its cold and rainy...YAY! Thank the weather its back ta somethin I like. ^___^

And now, I return you to whatever ya were doing and go back to work, stories, plotting, and singin~~ in the rain~~~ well, less of that last one.
