No funny story today, folks, instead, a little bit of mourning. One of my games has been canceled abruptly, and the whole fiasco that caused this could have been avoided.
There’s always been a sort of tension around the table at this game, for multiple reasons:
- The GM has highly altered the rules in some places.
- The GM is of the sort that really likes to tell a story (whereas some of the players are more hack ‘n’ slash. Personally? I love the story).
- There have been clashes over rules that HAVEN’T been changed by the GM because he’s using a dungeon set up for an older version of the system we’re playing in, and a LOT of stuff is different between then and now.
Now, you may be saying “This is an odd post to be calling GM Appreciation, it sounds an awful lot like you’re just complaining about the way the guy ran the game,” but that’s kinda my point. I had a great deal of fun with this game. I let the GM know it. Not, probably, as frequently as I could, but I did.
