My first language is German. I started playing with Das Schwarze Auge. As a referee I'm lazy and prefer to do things just-in-time. My preferred system right now is Labyrinth Lord.

comment What tools are useful to organize a GM's campaign notes?
I find that a wikimcan work if he players find their XP in the (very short) session reports. If the players don't put in more effort, then that's the only kind of age they'll find on the wiki.

comment How to handle a rules-lawyer player?
Ouch, that seems to be a social disaster at the table in the making. How did the player react? I think I'd tske offense at being thusly schooled at a gaming table. Maybe back when we were all 15 or 16 years old. But now?

comment Do your players make maps while exploring the unknown of your game's world?
I guess I find the joy mapping and mistakes bring outweigh the realism aspect. The game doesn't simulate reality too well, but it's fun (for me). Maybe i should make the decision part of the next campaign setup...

Errors just creep in as I copy stuff carelessly. Don't count squares, don't count hexes, don't try to get all the proportions and angles right and you'll get a map full of mistakes. Works every time! :)
