Listening back over the podcast, I feel I owe our listenership some sort of apology for our lack of focus … and an actual story line. Between laughing fits, poor accents and weak dramatic descriptions I did actually have a good a good bit of fun however and if nothing else gained more experience as a subpar GM.
That said, chatting last night with an old friend (ZenJedi), after listening to the podcasts he brought it to my attention that according to the old official RPG Gamer classification (http://dragon.facetieux.free.fr/jdr/Munchkin.htm), all three of my players seemed to fall into the “Loonie” classification. Interesting.
He also said that when it comes to getting them into a story line it’s like coaxing a fat kid wearing water wings clutching his mommy in the kiddie pool to dive for pennies in the deep end.
No….. he didn’t actually say that… ..but maybe he should have?
Actually, in all honesty, I am glad they have mostly tottled along my story trails quite agreeably, while throwing in amusing twists to keep things interesting. All in all well done fellows!
As some of you might have noticed, Jo’eth has had corrected speech therapy since his earlier podcast adventures.
Some of you might have wondered when on earth did he have time for such a time-expensive activity. The answer: Screw you. As annoying as that voice was for you to listen to it was 10 times worse for me to be constantly doing it. It started up as a joke between the GM and myself. A kind of “Hey wouldn’t it be really funny if you’re guy was skilled, mysterious, and completely unintelligable?” We then spent the next 3 days laughing like idiots about it.
But the novelty wore off. Quickly. So, there we have it. I had a few extra char points to spend and annoying trait that I wanted to buy off slightly. Connery is pretty much the only voice I can even partly imitate so it seemed natural. Good for me. Hope you enjoyed.
