Since things have gotten a little serious here, I thought I would lighten the mood a little. Anyhow…
When searching for new games or more gamers for your own game, there are the basic cut and dry questions concerning: date, time and game system. Then there are the qualifications most GM’s want in players: sane, reliable etcetera.
Lastly, we come to the very ambiguous style matching. For that I asked two questions. First, I ask the combat ratio they like to see if it matches my GM’ing style. I found if we’re within 10 or so percent of each other, we’re a match.
The next thing I ask is if you could choose three different TV shows, movies or books that would equate to actual games that you would want to play in what would they be? Mine as a GM are: Sherlock Holmes, Supernatural and Leverage.
Other things I try to incorporate many from writing: description which I throw clues into, unusual plot elements including PC subplots and of course fun.
Just curious to see what other folks would answer. If you could choose three different TV shows, movies or books that would equate to actual games that you would want to play in what would they be?
