since the late 70s, stopped writing and started playing after seeing Mercer on Colbert
[the following is pretty much all stolen from Gnomish Mage, but, hey, it's true]
Play Style (as a player or GM)
Pretty relaxed and happy to play with players of any experience level.
Like RP/Exploration/Combat just about as much as each other and definitely prefer to have all
three present in a game.
Not a rules lawyer, but do prefer playing Rules As Written.
Almost never allow UA or Homebrew races and classes in games I run, and prefer playing in
games where the same applies.
What I like about TTRPGs
Meeting new friends and killing stuff together. ;-)
The unscripted nature of the game. Anything is possible with the right mix of imagination and
It's about the story, it's always about the story. Even when I play CRPGs I rarely play them on
extreme difficulty because it's about the story.
Those YES! moments.
Hogs who try to win at D&D. They hog the attention, the microphones, the conversation.
Players who tell other players that they're not making the optimal choices for their characters or
that they're making mistakes.
Players who are unprepared and don't know their characters, or take ages to decide what they're
doing in combat.
Min/maxers and murder hobos.
