Clarifications: [Aug. 2nd, 2006|06:10 pm]

Ok, what's going on is this:
I've been writing a gaming anthology. It is an advice book, an explination book, and the like. Credit for everything used is being given. If I am quoting anyone, permission has been acquired before hand.

I've been posting questions to get replies and comments from perspectives other than mine. Also, reading other people's posts has helped me to fill in sections that I may have not thought about or simply overlooked.

I would not quote anyone without permission. I may use your topics, replies, or otherwise as jump points for my anthology, but no quotes are used without permission. If you do not want to be referenced, please tell me so. If you do not feel comfortable about contributing further please remove all your comments and depart.

I was starting this project as a rallying point for all gamers, geeks, and general fandom. I thought a textual rallying point may help to draw a splintering subculture. I've been exploring various aspects of fandom and gaming, including trekkies, goths, RPGers, LARPers, War Gamers, and Furries (once I can find some who are willing to be interviewed) This particular community is to help fill out my game master advice section.

I am sorry for any concern I may have caused, please, do what you feel you must, but I assure you, no ill will or otherwise was ever intended.


PS - I thought people would read the description of the community before contributing. I am sorry for the confusion. Would it help if I bolded it, or put it in a larger font so people don't miss it? Maybe all caps?

The profile has been further explained. If there are still problems, please contact me.

I have a question...

What kind of major "house rules" do you have?

I don't mean the little stuff like changing the amount of damage that a longsword or a fireball does. I mean the major stuff... the game-altering stuff... the stuff that when you explain it to someone new to your group, they react with an expression of surprise and alarm.

I need Help [Jul. 27th, 2006|08:27 am]
Gamemaster to Gamemaster

Let me start by saying I've been playing D20 game for a few years now. But now my group and I are looking for something new. We are currently looking at Exalted. That is why I'm here today. I need some rule help, and I'm hoping you all can help.

Is initiative calculated by the speed of the weapon? If not how is it calculated?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Cross-posted to deargm and gm_2_gm.

Something that's been rattling around between me and a friend of mine for a while is how to successfull run a LARP, Vampire specifically. One of the things that came up is controlling weirdness, i.e., Bloodlines, non-vamps, etc.

I came up with a series of hoops, based on levels of weirdness. Something like, minor weirdness means you should write a character story, that would have to be fully approved by the staff. Medium weirdness means character story, plus something else.

It's the something else that I'm wondering about. My idea was internships. Basically, if your story gets approved, we assign you a certain number of nights that you have to play NPC's, or help us run challenges, or something to that effect. We choose the nights, basically whenever we need you (so we don't get flooded with internships on a night we don't need any NPC's). If you do that without any screw ups, that hoop is considered jumped through.

The reason I like it is it rewards the people who are willing to help the game as a whole, and not just their piddly character.

My questions are, have any of you tried this before, and if you did, how did it work out? Are there better ideas for allowing weirdness without allowing it to overpower a game? Does it seem fair?

That's all for now.
