GM Appreciation Day

Gary Gygax dies at the age of 69. This does affect me. His contributions to creating the role playing genre are one of the reasons I am a published author today. I never met the man but I appreciate his works enough to mourn his passing.

Because of this, I am declaring it my own personal "Game Master Appreciation Day".

To all my past GMs like Alex, Rich, Monte, Ivan, Ryan, Rory, David, Keane and so many more... Thank you for giving me so of the best RP of my life. You helped fill my head with wonder, horror and joy. I appreciate it more than you know.

PS: I just heard that today is actually a worldwide Gamemaster's Day. Is this true?

You are most welcome. I love telling the stories and seeing how players make them their own. :)

Happy Gamemaster's Day...*raises glass* To Gary.

We all owe him a debt; my would't be the same without AD &D.

But his dying on Gamemaster's Day is just creepy coincidental.

I don't know if I'm the David mentioned above, that's such a common name :P But regardless, I'd like to mention that YOU are one of the best players I've ever had, and it's always been a joy to run games with you in them AND to play in them along with you :)

You were. (There are several Davids wrapped up in that one name. Easier to just say it once.)

Thank you. Also, you missed it. I got to pull out the tears again when Madison "came to" and discovered that she wasn't alive anymore and Mercedes hugged her, saying "I'm sorry."

Oh I didn't 'miss' it, I was DENIED from getting to you :) I tried to rush over to help pick you up and take you in and I was shooed away like a first-rate criminal.

Well... everyone knows Troy hates Houdin. No one in his or her right mind is going to let a sex-starved enemy near Houdin's helpless (appearance 5) ghoul.

See, that's the problem..I'm always misjudged *sigh* :P

I simply have a tiny disagreement with Houdin. A trifle, really.

And the whole bit about using Madison to get to Houdin... and wanting to rip her throat out?

Hey now THOSe are private thoughts!! *evil grin*
No one knows about those..I'm pure as the driven snow..

Except for the very public outing of Troy as Malkavian and his subsequent public threat to Houdin in front of witnesses. Of course, TROY didn't make that threat. Diana did.
Mar. 5th, 2008 09:29 pm (UTC)
well yeah :P I'm specifically meaning any threat against Madison..I've never done anything (publicly) against her. Yet. Heh. I can't wait to see what happens this Saturday.
