Zak over at Playing DnD With Porn Stars posted this questionaire for all us GMs, and me being a long time lover of lists had to have a go at it.

Repost and answer. Or, if you don't have a blog, answer in the comments. Or be a big rebel and do neither.


1. If you had to pick a single invention in a game you were most proud of what would it be?
The Magaij. An overly magical race of sexless mages. Small statured, rather ugly to behold, and with hideous raspy voices.

2. When was the last time you GMed?
December 3rd.

3. When was the last time you played?
October 11th.

4. Give us a one-sentence pitch for an adventure you haven't run but would like to.
The crew of the Dream-Ship searches for the Library of Forgotten Truths.

5. What do you do while you wait for players to do things?
Have a cigarette, look over notes, make a small joke, etc....

6. What, if anything, do you eat while you play?
Pizza, snacks and candy. 

7. Do you find GMing physically exhausting?

8. What was the last interesting (to you, anyway) thing you remember a PC you were running doing?
Shadowing the other players for nearly an entire session(it was my first session in the campaign).
9. Do your players take your serious setting and make it unserious? Vice versa? Neither?
Not really. We usually joke alot when we're playing, but I don't feel like it's ruining anything.

10. What do you do with goblins?
I fill entire battlemaps with them!

11. What was the last non-RPG thing you saw that you converted into game material (background, setting, trap, etc.)?
A jewelry butterfly made out of clock parts. Going to use it as a Clockwork Fairy(as a familiar).

12. What's the funniest table moment you can remember right now?
Probably some kind of lame joke. I'm not much of a comedy writer, so I'll skip this one.

13. What was the last game book you looked at--aside from things you referenced in a game--why were you looking at it?
Green Ronins, The Black Company Setting. I'm currently making a map of Glen Cooks world for a friend of mine who's using it for his own Black Company campaign.

14. Who's your idea of the perfect RPG illustrator?
Oscar Chichoni with Tony Diterlizzi on a close second.

15. Does your game ever make your players genuinely afraid?
It has been known to happen.

16. What was the best time you ever had running an adventure you didn't write? (If ever)
Never have.

17. What would be the ideal physical set up to run a game in?
Ooh, I've been wanting my own RPG room for ages. Cabin interior, fireplace, chesterfield furniture, walls decorated with maps of my campaign and inspirational imagery. You get the point?

18. If you had to think of the two most disparate games or game products that you like what would they be?
GURPS 4E and Cyberpunk 2020.

19. If you had to think of the most disparate influences overall on your game, what would they be?
Maps(I am crazy about maps) and movies.

20. As a GM, what kind of player do you want at your table?
Role-players, not roll players.

21. What's a real life experience you've translated into game terms?
Well....... Naming goddesses after girlfriends, and then having to change their names every now and then:)

22. Is there an RPG product that you wish existed but doesn't?
A working, cool looking, graphical character creation program for GURPS 4E.

23. Is there anyone you know who you talk about RPGs with who doesn't play? How do those conversations go?
Well I sometimes have to explain RPGs to people who don't play, and I work my ideas off of my girlfriend who doesn't play. Yet!
There you have it. My thoughts for your penny.
