Where the hell is my "Like" button?!

I've asked that on every post I've seen Scras make today.

Due to real lifeage, my GMism is gonna be slow the next couple of days.

Before real life hits, I want to comment on why I chose to banish EchoMirage.

**** The Banishment of EchoMirage ****

1. It was not because of his in game actions, nor because of his conflict with his fellow players that I chose to banish EchoMirage.
2. The reason EchoMirage was banished was the fact that he seems unable to take a GM command if he disagrees with it. As a matter of fact, he is willing to go to extreme lengths to force his will upon others.

The basic tenet of any roleplaying game is that there is a GM and there are players.
While players have a large degree of influence, the GM calls the shots.

For a good while, many days in fact, I listened to all arguments, I even sympathised with EchoMirage's plight at a certain point, yet I realized he was being harsh and unfair to his fellow roleplayers.
 
Then I needed for the whole affair to calm down. It was ruining the game, and as a GM I did not want that.

Therefore I started deleting his posts, because they were inflammatory, accusational and did not in any way serve the interest of the game.
Rather his posts served EchoMirage's interests.

...Or actually, not even that.

They were a self-defeating string of hurt feelings manifesting as sarcastic comments about the other players and the direction of the game itself.

Thing is: Sometimes you gonna lose an argument. No matter how clever you deem yourself. No matter how righteous you consider your cause; sometimes you gonna lose.

What makes or breaks us, is how we decide to deal with that defeat.

In the end, EchoMirage decided to flush his arguments into the shoutbox.
He was so unwilling to accept any GM judgment in his disfavor, that he would rather publicly humiliate his GM.

And that was it.

***

I consider EchoMirage a very nice person, and I have even met him in real life and had a great time with him. At his best he is an excellent roleplayer, a wonderful friend and a person I really like.

So I am sorry that it came to this.
More sorry than many of you realize.

But at the end of the day you gotta fall in line and make sacrifice for the benefit of the game, of your fellow roleplayers and out of courtesy to your GM.

I wish I could have gone through this whole ordeal without losing my temper.
But I am a passionate man, and sometimes my temper gets the best of me.

AG out.

Amidst all the wonderful things happening to the environment right now, the third world war might be coming too!

Perhaps we can all play Bleakwood in real life! Yay!

Tatiana Maslany stars as Vivian Payne in...

A Cute Payne

Vivian Payne was once a down and out call girl in Toronto, and would have likely followed a spiraling path of drug addiction and bad decisions to an early grave except that a stranger intervenes in a horrible accident, saving her life, and in the process granting her supernatural abilities. Vivian Payne can sense the presence of the undead, the infernal, and all the secret hidden things that are slowly but surely working towards the end of the world.

But that is the sort of thing that action heroes are supposed to fight and she is just a hooker and teen mother. So Vivian Payne works with what she knows, she hunts down the wealthy and powerful who are fallen ones, demons, vampires, etc and uses her charm to seduce them into hiring her, where she gets close, sometimes too close, before taking down their guard, and them killing them.

Sometimes the battle for mankind, and the skirmishes before Armageddon are fought on silk sheets...

(Pretty Woman meets Max Payne meets Supernatural)

Thomas 'Renegade' Murk

What's cooler than cool? Murk is cooler than cool. Tom 'Renegade' is an action movie star, a pretty boy with Fabio hair and oiled pecs and biceps that he barely covers with a leather biker's vest. He rides a motorcycle, but can also ride a horse, and despite his willingness and ability to lay down righteous ass-beatings with his fists and silver heeled boots, he always has pillow talk and sensitive feelings for not just the damsel in distress, but the tough woman with the all business demeanor, and even the introvert who can't find within herself the ability to express herself and leave her abusive spouse for the muscular Renegade

Tom Murk might seem like just another Hollywood pretty boy, and in many ways he is, but the truth is much deeper.

Murk, hailing from the coast of Maine, is actually a Deep One. He is wearing a very powerful disguise, and has quite gotten into the role as a Hollywood movie star. His often odd personal mannerisms are waved off as just celebrity eccentricities, and his constant demands for all his filming sites to have a swimming pool of salt water is just a diva being a diva. As a leading action/romantic actor, Murk is steadily but surely impregnating as many of his female fans as possible.

Oh the surprise they will have when their little groupie spawn child starts growing gills...

So my wife and I are playing our usual meandering long since should have been scrapped/retired game, and I revealed to her character that rather than having moved out of the state 2 years ago, she actually died and had spent most of that time in hell before being resurrected with her memories altered to forget her mortal demise, and replacing it with a vanilla fantasy of having lived in Texas for a while before accepting that she ran away because emotions.

She later said, 'Hell? Really? i know my character isn't a saint but did she really deserve to go to Hell?'

'Out of all the things that happened in that exchange,' I said, 'the part that you stick on is that after her death she went to hell?' At which point my wife nodded.

'Well,' I said, 'There really aren't words in the human language or experience to describe the condition of human souls after death in a setting where Cthulhu is real.'

'Can we just go back to her being in Hell? That was better,' she said.
