RPPR Episode 31: Be A Team Player

In this episode, Tom and I more or less interview each other about our habits as players. Find out what can truly surprise Tom in a game or what my favorite character type is. If you want to get an idea of how to improve your game, think about how you play, what works and what doesn’t work. Also, to make up for the recent lack of content, we’ve made this episode nearly 90 minutes long. Tom has an improvised Letter, plus two new anecdotes and more.

    Well Tom, if only you and I could switch places. All my friends ever run is Mage and Vampire (old World of course.) If only I could get to play Cthulhu more often. *sigh*

    Wow, autistics, aspergers, retards and Russians.

    I guess you Tivo’d political correctness and haven’t got round to it yet.

    At least you aren’t butt screwing a seal with a claw hammer this week. Lol.

    Ross I am completely with you on being a GM player, having started out as a GM for about a year before I was ever a player because we started from scratch and someone had to be it, and ether they like my style or their too lazy to GM themselves ( I’m hoping the former is the case). Because of this I have your same mentality with helping the GM along and wish to move the story forward. I also agree with making “normal” characters. I have grown to hate characters who have the stereotypical orphan loner background. ( I personally think that a lot of players do this so they don’t have anyone who they have to worry about or to cause them problems)

    I can’t wait to hear all of the APs from gencon especially the DG games.

    I just found myself a mage, vampire, werewolf group which is pretty cool as the storytellers managed to fit me and three friends in to an existing playgroup (It’s a large group with 3 GMs).
