Time To Empty Out My Head

1: Watched Heroes on Monday night and…damn! I love that show!

2: 112 days until GenCon!

3: Speaking of GenCon, I’ve got a few ideas for games I might run for my friends. First is a pretty standard CyberPulp game, full of action and adventure and an Evil Mastermind. Then there’s an Old West/Steampulp type of advernture, very much in the flavor of the Wild Wild West tv series. Finally, there’s a Fantasy take on the above mentioned Heroes. I reckon I’ll have to decide which one to run pretty soon now. After I buy plane tickets:)

4: Congratulations to my pals at Firefly Games and Green Ronin for pooling their talents to create Faery’s Tale Deluxe Edition, for sale at the above mentioned GenCon. Even more congrats to Green Ronin for landing the RPG rights to George R.R. Martin’s A Song Of Fire And Ice series. Expect to see the first products in that line sometime in 2008.

5: As I’ve said, oh, about 3,000,000 times over the years, I spend 95% of my RPG time being a GM. Now, I do like GMing, but every so often I just wanna be a player. Sometimes the desire to be a player gets REALLY strong. Like recently. I need a game!

6: Slowly but surely, I’m getting various groundcovers planted in my yard to choke out the weeds by acting as a living mulch. This coming weekend, it’s time to unleash the Dwarf Bamboo!

Ack! Time for work! More blogging later.

    Have you tried using GMless games? These would give you a chance to be on the same playing field as the rest of your players. They can relieve GM burnout without requiring someone else step up to the plate.

      I’ve heard of a couple of supposedly GMless games, I think. What are some titles?
      I’m not sure if my group could pull off a GMless game. I get this vision of either blank stares or utter chaos.

        Most of the GMless games I can think of are mentioned in this thread. On top of that, I’d add The Extraordinary Adventures of Baron Munchausen, Pantheon, and Rune (which is closer to a rotating GM, but that’s still something).
        Those three and the ones listed in the thread comprise all the published GMless games I can think of, though I know of some others in various stages of development (I just finished writing a GMless game for the Iron Game Chef game design competition).
