Lynn’s got a radar. A radar for Boobs.
So, I am ARG was reviewed on the digital strips podcast! It’s a good listen and filled with wiener humour.
The new job is going great. I’m having a blast. I wish I could show you guys the crazy things I get to animate on this show. It’s just stupid funny.
Tomorrow I’m DM’ing for the first time. I’m just using a stock adventure to get the hang of it but I’m super excited. It should be fun! If you guys know of any good resources for Noob DM’s (other than slyflourish) Please let me know. I’m trying to soak in as much info as possible.
Have a great weekend.
I was going to ask if Lynn’s bi, but then i remembered even straight girls and gay guys like boobs
what are you DMing?
^Same question. I’ve only DM’d or GM’d one World of Darkness campaign… and it could’ve been done better… Good luck though!
.pdf files of books shouldn’t be too hard to find. Depending on the edition, that is.
My favorites, in no particular order, are:
and http://www.robotviking.com will occasionally throw a D&D article up, but is mostly focused on M:tG
Yes. Boobs are amazing. End of story. Of course, I’m kind of bi-ased.
4chan’s /tg/ board is a surprisingly good resource. Don’t be put off by the 4chan bit, it’s nothing like /b/.
I know a girl on one of my forum jaunts that has a signature that says “I used to think I was lesbian, but I realized I just like tits.”
Wife is the same way. She’s got 1000cc implants and has, several times, said she’d love to get them larger if it were not so hard to get larger implants in the US.
I need a better job…
as a friend of mine used to say “more than a handfull’s a waste … thank f*ck I’ve got big hands!”
The #1 rule of good DM-ing, know your players. #2 is have fun, because if you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong.
#2 should also have an addendum to it – but not at the expense of the players.
I have been at enough convention games to contemplate homicide on a few occasions that I usually ended up being a GM/DM just so that nobody else has to endure such shenanigans.
I just built an app for groups to use during games. The idea is, the GM uses a laptop or tablet to build the world… Create all the rooms of the dungeon for instance. Then everyone plays a normal game, but the all have smart phones out looking at the app. The app tells your players where they are, what they can see, and lets them pick up and drop things.
It is all real time and snappy. 🙂
Anyway, we *just* wrote the thing, so we really want people to play with it, ask questions, tell its what sucks or what is confusing, etc… Let me know if you give it a try!
You can find the GM tool at http://gmkit.com
And the phone app for your players is “GM kit” in iTunesand in the Android marketplace.
If they look like they’re winning pull a dick move like “Suddenly all the water in the party’s possession turns to fire” And since the human body is like 70% water they all combust.
Remember guys, please your woman, always check out other girls’ ta-tas.
You’re the DM. Don’t get bogged down by the rules. If the rules disagree with what you want to have happen, the rules lose. Do not be lawyered.
Don’t run the adventure on rails. Be prepared to have your party take off in zany directions. If you can find ways to gently guide them back to your well-prepped story, great, but better to improv a night or two than to make the players feel they have no control over their story.
Word of warning – not getting bogged down is one thing but and it is a big butt, be consistent. You can change or cut out what rules you want but let the players know ahead of time. Its a game and it only fair that everyone plays by the same set of rules, even the GM/DM else you are just going to be a former DM/GM.
Rails – yeah, that is to be avoided. Plan your story and be prepared to improvise because your players WILL do stupid and insane stuff and go off in weird directions. Just improvise and keep notes for next time because you won’t remember everything but THEY will.
All in all it is still mostly improvisation. ie just fake it and have fun.
Damn that Girl must have Backmuscles!
Best advice I can give aspiring DMs is simple: Create the world, and let the players tell the story. If you’re using a stock campaign/scenario, feel free to fill in gaps, add flavor, and make the world real, both for yourself and them. I use Dragonsfoot as a resource, but that’s because I play 1.0… I’m sure their resources for others aren’t shabby, though.
Also, my gf has hip radar, and I have boob-vision, and we frequently compliment each other well when looking for potential thirds. We actually had something like this happen the other day:
“What was that?”
“What was what?”
“Are you blind?”
“You missed the best pair of tits we’ve passed all day!”
“Sorry, I was preoccupied…”
“They just announced Pokémon X and Y…”
“Oh… well… that *is* hard to compete with…”
I loves my gf~
They get mad if you look, but they get weird if you don’t. 😉
The only RPG I’ve GM’ed is a kind of obscure one called Risus. Pretty fun, a little silly: the entire rulebook is six pages and available online for free.
I got the hang of the idea of GMing from that, it was a good place to start.
What system are you running? Available help will depend upon this 😛
I have so done this to Brandon! hehehe!
i had no idea wut DM/GMing was…until now,anyway i recommend the ULTRA ZANY path…Giant stone laser penis anyone?btw ARG, a strip detailing the events of the game might be entertaing… ive been calm for too long…
Oh, the paradox that is woman!
Actually one of the most fun ways to learn about how to be a good DM is the following:
There are more like these but these two in particular have good DM narration below the comics describing to fellow or would-be DMs what general pitfalls the fictional DM of the story just avoided or fell right into.
Also handy for DMs is to know a good fraction of this list:
There, even if your first session as Dungeon Master went rough this should cheer you up 😀
My wife Pam is similar to Lynn. If a redhead with a nice figure walks by and I DONT look – she checks my pulse while dialing 911. 😀 I’m opposite on the boobs, tho – I am a “tiny titty man” myself – I think a B or C cup is usually way cuter than a DD. Go figure.
Fo’ shame there Arg.
If she’s so jealous, why not implants? Or the experimental drug that was originally mean to be used to treat cancer, but can be used to stimulate growth in the body via a cocktail of drugs and hormones.
HOORAY FOR BOOBIES.
She’s a keeper.
Lynn’s hands in the first panel are my favorite part.
