All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: Roleplaying, comic books, .... okay, so mainly just RPGs & comic books. And Dr. Who. And Firefly. And comic books. And role-playing games. And Community. And Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And comic books. And RPGs. And Avengers. And RPGS. And whatever else amuses me today...
Dan Harmon, answering “What makes you a good Dungeon Master?” on Harmontown, Episode 3: If They Have Cubs, We’re Already Dead (7-23-2012) 26:55. (via myghostinthemachine)
Player: I want to play a rogue!
Player: I'm going to put 4 points into bluff, 4 into sneak, and 4 into move silently!
The game starts
Me: You see a guard, what do you do?
Player: PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE!
Needless to say, this didn't end well.
so my dad was a DM back in the day and because i’m about to DM for the first time ever i told him a few things about the campaign i’m writing and he literally just tore the whole thing down. he told me what to do instead, and then went out to buy me two fantasy books.
i’m not allowed to work on it anymore until i finish the books.
