RPGaDay, Day Three

RPGaDayToday, Dear Readers, we are asked: “What is something you have done with your game character that you are the proudest of?”

To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure I have one. Since most of my playing time is spent on the GM’s side of the table, I don’t get a lot of opportunity to play in a game instead of running a game. And when I do get a chance to play, my last few playing experiences, all of them one shots, haven’t been the most enjoyable of experiences, mostly due to the inability to really get into a character and make that PC a part of me and me a part of him/her. I know this is a problem that Hal has talked about as well, which doesn’t surprise me give that his GM time is much higher than his PC time also.

I’d like to be able to be a player again, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen any time soon. For one thing, I happen to like GMing, to be able to facilitate my players’ being awesome and their ability to derive enjoyment from the games I run. Secondly, I have a hard time turning off my inner-GM, which is probably a post for another day.

But man, can it ruin your perception and enjoyment of a game if that voice in your head keeps saying, “You know, if I was running the game . . .”

  2. […] sure this will be a short post, because as we’ve said before, I don’t play much. I suppose if we were to travel waaaaaay back in time to my pre-marriage […]
