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 As an experienced GM, what pitfalls should I watch out for?
What things worked? What things did not work? ...

comment How do you deal with a player that's determined to play the game in a way that is detrimental to the advancement of the story?
+1 for (2) but I get the impression that the player is more disruptive than going with his own story ideas... Maybe experience coloured this.

comment What collaborative mapping software would meet my needs?
+1 I am interested in that as well as I would like to find a better tool than GIMP which while good is not ideal.

@corvec: I do not. I suspect you get a mess unless you are careful. It will detect that the underlying image has changed but you may only have the choice between trashing what you have done or trashing the changes that have been pushed. Do have a look at how git/darcs deal with binary files as that may help. Personally, I would have multiple maps -- one per topic -- where one GM is responsible for one topic. Topics could be political, fauna, flora, etc...

comment How do I role-play as a dragon?
@corvec: I still think the question is bad but apparently few other people do. Meh. Not to worry and I hope you did get something useful out of it.

You should consider accepting answers on your questions: Pick the one that worked best for you.

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.

Are those quests set in a specific published game world? I assume not otherwise there would be a game tag but worth checking nonetheless.

...And somehow Captain America wins more upvotes than SS-Obergruppenführer Von Essen... ^_~

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.

+1 if only for the short game idea.
