Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What to do when a player character does something suicidal?
@vsz Could you convert that into an answer? It is clearly well-received, but answers in comments are in the wrong place and need to be deleted eventually. If you want the wisdom kept on the page, it should go in an answer soon.

Does the river involved have clear sight-lines in a single channel like this, or is the river more like this with multiple channels, islets, and other blinds?

comment Are PCs supposed to start a game knowing each other, and if not, how should they meet?
@Ruut In the case of someone fairly new to RPGs, is a common way to ask the (not opinion-based) question "so what are my options here?"
