1. If you had to pick a single invention in a game you were most proud of what would it be?
A variant on my relationship hex-map idea that I haven't had time to blog about yet.
I guess this means not GMing, in which case it was probably mid-November.
Unknown Armies or Call of Cthulu set among the Japanese community in Brazil in the early 20th century. May or may not involve the Black Ocean Society.
"Train" my dice by arranging them in lines with the highest number facing up.
No. I'm 30 years old and pretty healthy, and I only run sessions for about 2 1/2 hours.
Being the head of a crazed cult who believed that I was a kind of avatar of the Spirit of Justice and using my power and influence to take over the entire town.
9. Do your players take your serious setting and make it unserious? Vice versa? Neither?
Probably they unserious it a little bit, but then once play starts I always do the same thing.
10. What do you do with goblins?
A cyberpunk version of Liverpool.
One of my players deciding that it would be a good idea to create a distraction by faking having a seizure in the middle of a crowded bar full of Lithuanian mafioso types. It was more the deadly serious expression on his face as he declared this action that made me laugh. You had to be there, really.
Iron Heroes. I was just idly perusing through it and wondering if I wanted to invest the time in it.
Sometimes, but it depends very much on the game.
Never. I don't do that.
Six nubile 18-year old girls of various ethnic backgrounds with a love for OD&D. Failing that, probably at a table on the balcony of an apartment building on a warm day in Rome, Paris, New York or Tokyo.
Hmm. Rolemaster and Risus, probably.
Gene Wolfe on the one side and Fighting Fantasy on the other.
Creative, intelligent, active people. Really anybody who wants to get involved rather than be passively entertained.
I'm not sure I've ever done that, actually. Unless you count running games in real places. I suppose I've spent a lot of time in "exotic" climes, which trickles into the sort of games I run.
Now there's a question. I wish there was a version of Pendragon set in feudal Japan that was actually complete. I've seen an incomplete one online, but not a final version.
No. RPGs are my secret shame.
