Yet another DM chimes in
« on: June 26, 2008, 07:37:10 AM »
Hey, Strolenites! I've been a GM since 1985 (holy crap, has it been that long?), and quite frankly, I'm running out of new things to throw at my players. So, I've been trolling the internet looking for inspiration (as well as stealing ideas outright, let's be honest here), and this site has been a treasure trove to me. Well, I felt as though I ought to start giving something back, so, y'know, here I am...

Welcome to our highly (dys)functional family, make yourself at home, and, if possible, pay no mind to the dancing iguanas in the walls.

Sweet, another member of the barbarian horde turned to the dark side...we are the dark side right?

Great intro and happy that you have been stealing stuff, that makes us very happy to know at least a couple of those hits on the subs are people actually using the ideas!

Pariah, forgot to say that your quote was very appropriate. You know the rules on giving proper credit though as there is no alliteration in the phrase I highly doubt it was original.

Welcome! We have plenty more for you to steal! Likewise, we'd like to steal some of your ideas as well. You know, those that you had before you "ran out" :)

Great intro, as Strolen said!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Thanks all. Give me a little while to figure out how things work and I'll be happy to share. What I'd really like to post are all the things that kind of "went to waste" in the game because it didn't suit the particular party, or puzzles that they didn't figure out. Y'know, stuff like that.
