What kind of in game events do you prefer?
« on: August 12, 2005, 12:49:15 PM »
I have conducted a small investigation of what my Coldforged gamers prefer, but thought I could extend this to everyone (also those CF players who have yet to answer it). Open for all, come cast your vote.

So: What kind of in game events do you prefer?
List them from best to worst. :)

1. Dialogue & Plot investigation
2. Combat
3. Magic Rituals (divinations, summoning, enchantment, construct creation, cursing, and so on)
4.Stealth, stealing and burglary
5.Problem Solving & Puzzles
6. Travel and landscape (Cinematic detailing of landscapes, both indoors and outdoors, travel through the lands and dungeons & Random events)
7.Camp & Tavern life. Trivial fun at inns and in the wilderness
8. Hunting and stalking prey
9. Exercising different crafts (Forging normal / magic swords, gathering herbs & making herbal potions, buying minerals & creating alchemical potions, crafting bows, making arrows, inscribing runes on scrolls and stone tablets, etc...)

FYI: This is not my preferred sequence. I will remain silent about that a bit longer

If puzzle solving was defined more towards mystery/plot solving it would rank higher. Puzzles means single serving challenges to me.

I really enjoy the behind-the-scenes stuff; this is part of the reason why I enjoy being a Game Master & designer. As a player, I enjoy forming and enacting a plan.

Yeah. The categories were made on the spot as I was chatting with Roack, Manfred and Chaosmark. I liked the idea, but kept the rough genres as 3 had already answered using those genres. Right now mystery and plot solving kinda sorts under dialogue / plot.

To make it an even 10 for me, I added Horror/Tension to it, hope you don't mind :P. I love fear and the unknown. Things which arent understood by anybody, and mysteries which don't get revealed in character.

Equal 1st. Magic Rituals\\Horror/Tension
3. Puzzle solving
4. Exercising crafts
5. Travel and Landscape
6. Dialogue and Plot
7. Hunting
8. Combat
9. Camp/Tavern Life
10. Stealth and Burglary

Actually, SE has it right on the head there. I also like the suspence and unknown aspects of the world. It gives it flavor.

Not to seem like a bandwagoner, but I think horror/tension would also be #1 or #2 for me, as well.

1. Plot/Dialouge
2. combat
3. landscape/travel
4. puzzle solving
5. town life
6. supporting characters
7. stealth/and burglury
8. crafts

 Mainly, to me, Its all about the plot and game expieriance, or how the overall play felt.
The strong survive and the weak will be slain. Which are you?

A skeleton walks into a bar and ask the Bartender: “Do you serve skeletons here?”

Times being what they are the wily Bartender replies: “sure, we serve anyone.”

The skeleton hands the man a silver and says: “Fine, I’ll have a pitcher of beer…and a mop”

1.Tension/Suspense
2. Stealth and everything stealth related
3. Combat
4. Dialogue and Plot investigation.
5. Puzzle Solving
6.Camp and Tavern Life
7.Everything else.

Basically, I thrive on high tension, high danger scenarios where you never really are sure what will happen next. The City Underground Society is obviously ideal for such a thing. In such a scenario, I get to plot and scheme and figure out the dozens of ways to ensure that I always have a back door to any situation.

Obviously however, all catagories are subject to change based on DM skill in a particular area.

The last three I don't like at all, so those are in no paticular order ^__^
