Caleb is a mad genius (or Yet Another Fan Club Thread)
« on: January 25, 2011, 06:45:50 PM »
Caleb, though you are new to RPPR and gaming in general, clearly you have a lot of talent in this craft. All of your PCs are totally awesome, and I just learned that Andrew's Fortune was not only your first time as a GM, but also a scenario you wrote yourself after playing 3 or 4 disjointed games and reading a tutorial from the CoC rulebook. I have been GMing for several months and have no idea how I'd write a scenario for a Dirty World, let alone one so memorable.

I hereby dedicate this thread to Caleb and all of his mad genius. Shine on you crazy devil, shine on.

Seconded! Rarely have a heard such fine craftsmanship. Caleb nearly forced a state mandated reporter to leave the room while covering their ears. That's roleplaying.

He is very very very very good.

We're thinking about replacing ross with him.

Ross may even agree.

Dude, I'm so in on this. You rock Caleb.

Also, if you have any tips for "doing voices" or inspiration for your NPCs share 'em!

Hey, does that mean Caleb might be at GenCon? Cus I would totally like to rub my dice against him for luck. It might take awhile, I have alot of dice.

Holy dear god that was his first time?
Wow.

Also, Caleb's character in Aaron's version of The Haunting was fantastic. Too bad that game will never be posted.

This makes me so very happy.

Caleb, you're awesome and Andrew's Fortune was great. Hope the Eclipse Phase game goes well too.

Love the voices, wish that I could  be more like that in my games...

All told, you did a killer job, and it was fun to hear the game run by someone other than Ross...

I fucking love the bit in Andrew's Fortune where the cop is on the phone and says "well I didn't know it was your sandwich. I'll buy you a new one."

No, Ross, I love your GMing, it's just variety is the spice of life that's all.  Nice to have some variety...

I re-listened to Part 2 while running errands the other day and cracked up laughing in the grocery store at that point.

Hell yeah, dude, you deserve it.

Lots of talent in the lad.
