At The Table: The Three Tiers Of Gamers In Tabletop RPGs

Last week we had our first game of the Dragon Age RPG by Green Ronin Games. We’d been planning the game for a few weeks, intending to run through their free Quickstart adventure to decide whether or not we wanted to start a regular game, and finally managed to get our players around the table to venture forth into the realm of Ferelden. It was only while sitting around the table that I realised we had essentially gathered representatives of what I like to think are the three core groups of gamers found in your standard RP group.

Numbers of these particular members can vary from group to group, and their exact experience with the game can fluctuate. But having a grasp on the kind of gamers you can expect in your groups will help any prospective new GM in planning and preparing their game sessions.

So, grab a coffee and get comfy, while I introduce you to The Three Tiers Of Gamers In RPGs.

Great Scottish Run 20120 10k Road Race – Help Me Support TSWGO

This year, I am running on behalf of This Star Won’t Go Out, a charity which helps families of those suffering from cancer with financial support.

Please take some time to donate a little money to the cause. Every penny will go to making a difference in the lives of cancer sufferers.

Much love and DFTBA, Jimmy

EDIT: There was a donate button I’d set up to donate directly from here, but WordPress said no. Click the link above to donate directly to the charity. Means that the charity still gets the money and I don’t have to worry too much about paypal transfers 🙂

Jay-Z and Obama: Potential BFFs?

So, Barack Obama came out (pun intended) recently saying he supported equal marriage rights for gay couples.

Not long after, prolific rap artist Jay-Z also announced his support for gay marriage, citing it as an issue that “was still holding the country back.”

Only a few days before, the rapper announced that he wanted to invite the President to perform at the Budweiser Made In America festival, which he was hosting.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, he said “I’m gonna give him a call and I’m gonna try to get him to perform – do a little rendition of Al Green – but I doubt it.”

Seriously, I think our Jay might have a bit of a bro crush going on.

I mean, its sweet and all, but does it strike anyone else as being a bit… creepy?
