    What do you want to see in a gaming advert to get your interest? Over the past three years, I have chatted in person about tabletop roleplaying gaming with strangers I've met at the university, at the local comics-n-games store, at the bookstore, once in a long line at a convenience store,...

    I ran one campaign in which all the PCs were hired as defense crew for a seagoing ship on a quest something like the travels of the Argonauts with Jason, the various ships under Odysseus and under Sinbad the Sailor, and a touch of the Dawntreader from the Narnia books. Their conflicts included...

    Taken seriously, that statement excludes all fantasy, all horror, all SF, and all superhero campaigns, then, for in all of them we approach scientific principles and/or metaphysics differently than we approach them in real life. And if it wasn't meant seriously, why make it? (Unless it was an...

    Something like that, yes, except as a real roleplaying game (Tabletop Face-2-Face Pen-&-Paper RL) instead of as a surrogate substitute approximation of a roleplaying game (computer / console / arcade / other video / online / forum / chatroom -- all of which make great wargames and "round robins",...

    Remember, this is not about your actual philosophical perspective but how you handle these notions in your campaigns regardless of your personal beliefs about the real world. (After all, anyone competent enough to pretend that a bit of dwarf star can enable someone to shrink enough to ride...

    I dunno . . . I rather like the idea of a game in which all the current crew have become idiots due to genetic interbreeding, which was the plan of the government all along because stupid people make controllable people. Onboard education could consist exclusively of Bill O'Reilly and Sean...

    In your superhero campaigns, how have you dealt with the notion of Fate versus Free Will (including possibly avoiding the topic altogether)? Or the related notions of Destiny, Karma, Prophesy, and/or godly or Divine decree? I'm posting this here and also in the fantasy and horror forums ...

    A luxury one does not have when one game masters at a convention as a scheduled game master, as I have, or game masters an open unofficial game at a convention, as I have, or accepts appointment as the primary game master for a specific gaming group composed of friends but also guests of the...

    IMHO, it's all right to set up a trap that only sexist players would fall for, but it is wrong to use a deus ex machina to push them into the trap -- or to have the trap hunt them down. And if the sexist somehow doesn't fall for the trap, well good for him or for her! That difference between a...

    Yeah, that was one of the many great moments of the film! Inspired by Alan Moore's original Watchmen series no less. It also makes sense even in a pro-cape comic book: rubber characters like Elasti-Girl and speedsters like Dash never wear capes in the comic books, and the only "hard light"...

    Unfortunately, the infamous geek fallacies http://plausiblydeniable.com/opinion/gsf.html are still with us even today. When it comes to this thread, the important thing is that people have an opportunity to understand the logic and wisdom underlying the original use of tights and capes in...

    magic-rhyme replied to a thread Favorite Quotes in Off Topic
    Okay, so this thread was killed off because we weren't supposed to consider our favorite quotes from literature, poetry, plays, songs, public speeches, TV series, non-fiction works, philosophers, public figures, etc.? Most of my favorite quotes don't come from movies. Give me Socrates, Lao-Tzu,...

    My players recently confided to me that they can almost always tell which supervillain will be the most challenging by how he or she handles gender. If one of the supervillains is either a strong, impressive female or a male who eschews traditional gender roles, that particular supervillain is...
