That's my contribution to being a better Game Master Master Master Master.
So many books telling us to improve, use puppets, set a bounty out of organic organical things, and vegan veganisms, erect an ornate dice cupola and cheese dip, and bring scything blades to the table ....
I can't best them. Their notions on being a better Referee are okay I suppose.
Though I do find they tend to just tell the reader the outcome they want. When rolling dice, always roll even numbers. So, I'm saying to myself how was that helpful? I suppose that might be a good thing but you didn't actually offer any insight into accomplishing such a thing.
(Really, I don't want the Vox input on how to technically accomplish a thing but go ahead below if you must.)
My point was ... there was no advice that if you do, you get the Better result.
So, to help, I offer a tip that will get you what you wish. Don't eat the Bean Dip.
The first fart at the game ... well .... that's just hilarious ... amirite? Who is with me here boys.
It had to be done. Someone had to do it. High fives all around.
But, then a few pops, rips, toots, nukers, and roaring blazers, thunder storms, and pants blasters later ... it's just wrong.
I'm not saying you can't eat Bean Dip ever. Just not when you are gaming. Do it when you can blame it on the dog (or cat ... I'm not racist).
Then, we have this:
The Lazy something ... me ... I'm taking lazy to a whole now (braaaaaaaaapppp) ... see what I mean ... funny.
I would say the book is not bad, not bad. I have one of his earlier texts. But, to get to the useful stuff, he spends too much time on things you simply can't tell people. Gamers know what a shower is .... but until you gain wisdom, you don't know why a shower is. (Trust me, it helps with the Bean Dip thing.) No judgement people ... they are brothers and sisters of sorts.
I'm so damn lazy ... I just want the good stuff. You know ... like a game in two pages. Yea, two ... why so many I ask?
