[Reverb Gamers 2012 Master List] Question #13

Atlas Games' "Reverb Gamers" group has published a list of questions. It is available from the Atlas Games site (http://www.atlas-games.com/pdf_storage/ReverbGamers2012MasterList.pdf).I am going to answer them, one at a time.

REVERB GAMERS 2012, #13: Who's the best GM/storyteller/party leader you've ever had? What
made him/her so great?

The best GM I have ever played with is Harley Stroh. I was in a game with him at a convention where he ran the whole game off the cuff. That's right folks, he improvised the whole four hour slot. It was the most amazing game I have ever played.

REVERB GAMERS 2012, #12: Do prefer collaborative or competitive games? What do you think that
says about you?

I prefer collaborative games. I guess that says that I am not a very competitive person. I like to work with people and share in success. It is less fun to win at the cost of someone else having to lose. That is probably why I prefer games like Arkham Horror from Fantasy Flight Games. It is one where the players all must work together in order to survive and stop a Great Old One from returning.

[Savage Worlds] In which I volunteer

This is really a two part-er.

First off, I recently ran my very first game of Savage Worlds! It was so much fun. My players even seemed to like it. It was Tuesday February, 28. I ran The Wild Hunt (the Free RPG Day 2011 adventure). I used the paper miniatures and the pre-generated characters. The game ran smoothly. There were a couple of times that I made mistakes with the rules, but on the whole I did them justice. SW really is a great game to GM. Prep for the adventure was easy and running was great. Now I need to try writing up my own adventures to see just how fast the full GM prep experience is.

Now for the second thing. I volunteered to coordinate the monthly SW games at my closest FLGS. I was already doing it to an extent by asking every month "Hey, who is running this month," so I decided to do it in a slightly more official capacity, since no one else was and since we are getting enough players for two tables at the events. It shouldn't be an onerous task and it is a good opportunity to help grow the SW community in Denver.

Yay for me.
