I've been playing tabletop RPGs since the early '80s, mostly as a GM. Currently I'm playing D&D 5 and am running a Basic Roleplaying apocalypse-in-progress campaign.

I also run a site that helps people learn to play tabletop RPGs, and another that provides tabletop RPG news.

comment What should the GM do when players constantly argue?
+1 for "And always, always frame it into game world..." All this arguing doesn't take place in a vacuum. To add to Apocalypse World bit, a countdown clock can really help. "Hey, while you were busy arguing, the town guard has started scouring the block looking for you. You can hear them coming. Bert, what do you do? Tom, what do you do?"
