Happy Thursday, August 4th, everyone! Otherwise known as the First Day of GenCon 2016! Sadly, I won’t be making it to the show this year. Soon the Know Direction feed will be flooded with exciting industry announcements that we’ve been waiting all year to hear about.
But until then, I can only offer this piece of verse in solidarity with my fellow GMs working in the trenches at in the Sagamore Ballroom. May you never fail to crit. And to those of you on the other side of the screen. May Pharasma hold you close.
To My Players, Coming to My Table
Tell me not, friends, I am too cruel,
That from the fastness
Behind my screen of tabled rules
With charts and dice I roll.
True, a new challenge in this place,
At least twice your APL;
And what stat line shall you face,
Claw/Claw/Bite or Spells?
Yet this sinking dread is such
As you too shall abhor;
I could not love mastering games so much,
Loved I not TPKs more.
