Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Overpowered PCs (Gabe's Dilemma)
+1 for politics. Allow the characters to be rulers for a while... See what mess they make and how quickly they are hated by everyone. Now, a new party gets hired to kill the tyrants. < recursion >

Make a cake, retire the characters, and start a new game?

comment Cyberpunk chronicle… any ideas?
@Metalcoder: You do not have to have the supernatural element be true. They could be fake, with spells mimicked by technology. Or just do not bother. It is just a suggestion. ^_~

comment How do I role-play as a dragon?
I voted to close as the question is not constructive, covers just one lrp game (thus is useless in the long run unless you play a Drake in that game), and finally, it is asking for subjective answers. I would have downvoted as well but the question is actually clear and well phrased so did not.

comment Where can I post quests I've written online for others to use and benefit from?
Are those quests set in a specific published game world? I assume not otherwise there would be a game tag but worth checking nonetheless.

Yeah, pretty much what I said at the same time as you.

@GMNoob: Oh yes. I did not mean that it was a bad idea -- HellBoy springs to mind -- just that a horror element can be done with just reality.

I find it much more horrible that the Nazi were humans, just like us. Who can say that under the right (read: very wrong) circumstances one would not have fallen for it?... Here lies distilled nightmares.

@DForck42: If it is too subjective/discussiony then how can I improve it so it is not?

@DForck42: I do have a black light already. It is a really good choice since it allows for a dark atmosphere and provides plenty of light on paper so you can see what you are writing.
