Expectations and Dedicated Feedback Thread

Postby Sum of All Fears » Sun May 24, 2020 11:52 am

What you can expect from me as your GM:

--My style is to create a world for you the players to interact with. I want you guys to have fun above all else. Now with that, I do not fudge dice. There was a discussion last month in the GM chat about the GM's ability to fudge dice to help the narrative along. While I understand this may be the way some GMs work it is not how I work. If you guys blow through the big bad boss cool. I have had more players die to their own nat 1's then I have intentionally killed. Do keep in mind your firing lines and AOE potential Friendly Fire is real with me.

--At the minimum you can expect a GM post every Sunday. If for some reason I fail to meet this time hack i will let you all know via Hangouts.

--I love descriptive posts. I love reading your intentions and being to actually put my self in your character's shoes.

--I encourage discussion if something did not go the way you envisioned. This is PBP. I can only go by what is typed. But please lets keep these discussion as discussions, and give me the chance to explain how I perceived an action so we can come to a common understanding.

--Please include all abilities, active, and/or constant effects in an occ tag below your JIC rolls

Example:
Perception: 1d100 = 41/36%
JIC: 1d20 = 4;1d100 = 78

Active Effects

Change to GM post days. Please read.

I am now in Korea and that is 16 hours ahead of PST time wise. If I continue to post on Sunday it will be late in the evening for me past 2000. So that would be very early in the morning on Sunday for you guys. Is this acceptable or would a different day be better for everyone? Please let me know what you think.

I post on the weekends as best I can. I try to post within 24 hours of your post. So if your game at an early post on Sunday I’m game.

But I can go either way. What other day works best for you?

Post whenever works best for you. If it's late on Sunday for you, then cool. If it's some other day, then that's cool too.
