Atlas Games is doing this thing called “Reverb Gamers 2012″, with 31 question prompts to kick off 2012. I’m going to post one up each day, including weekends, throughout January. I invite you to do the same! And check out @ReverbGamers on Twitter or Facebook.
REVERB GAMERS 2012, #13: Who’s the best GM/storyteller/party leader you’ve ever had? What made him/her so great?
Paul’s the person who introduced me to returning questions. I remember one game where I asked: “Is there anywhere where I could duck for cover?”
His response: “I don’t know. Is there?” He would tease out details, and create a sense that those elements, while tactical, were also narrative.
Carl has taught me to power in picking up throwaway lines and running with it to make it real and, often, dangerous. I wish I had a good example off the top of my head, but I don’t, so you should just imagine something mindblowing here.
<insert your mind being blown>
I know, right? Paul & Carl have many tricks, and by watching & gaming with them, I have learned to be a better GM.
