PS - I think you left a word out of "I look down well."[/QUOTE]
I was quoting a player.
Would I lie to you?
Yeah, I missed that one.
I'm glad I could hold your ADD off for most of the article.
Nice post. You're off to a good start, since my internet ADD didn't kick in until I finished reading.
The situation you described made me want to be the evil GM in a horror-game:
"Sure. You climb down the well." Then I address the other players. "There's a flash in the water, as something seems to have disturbed the light source. Then a few bubbles come up. So, what's next?"

This is my first Blog entry. I'm not sure what I'm doing or where I'm going. As more entries are posted, I hope to explore GMing and the things that make gaming fun, share some old war stories and maybe talk about some of my games.
there are 2 editions of the psionic hand book be careful they contain completely different systems for psionics. one is target number based where you have a number between 1 and 20 and you try to hit it, if you hit it dead on its like a critical success, each power has a list of how it work. The other is the much feared and dreaded MTHACO system, beware be-very freaking-ware.
