I know how you feel, Dean.

The laughter of the world is merely loneliness pathetically trying to reassure itself.

What Exactly is going on in Tokyo Right Now?

Ok kids, listen up. I’m about to explain to you, to the best of my ability, why there are 40,000 people protesting in Tokyo’s Nagata-cho as I type this, why it matters, and why you should be talking about it, too.

Very fair analysis. I was lucky, in that my first DM was very accommodating and helped me figure out what I wanted to play. The best way to do that, is by making character creation a conversation. 

It’s sad that other groups aren’t so welcoming. Wish I could find a new one local to me, but even Meetup is pretty insular.

As the main organize for a Meetup group, would you mind explaining what you mean by “insular?”  I really, really, really want me group to be a welcoming, non-threatening place for gamers, and I would really value your insight into what we might be doing wrong.

The article I think makes a fair point, but it’s something I already try really hard to fight against.  It’s one of the reason why I push narrative-focused games like FATE or more straightforward rulesets like Savage Worlds for our “intro” events, but it seems like most people want/expect to play D&D or some form of d20, with the its dependence on lots of math to do anything.  How can I lower the bar for new people to get interested?

A must read for anyone introducing new players to a a game

A bee can become drunk from fermented nectar and other bees will punish it by chewing off its legs.

"Hey, Pete is drunk again lets chew his legs off"

this doesnt apply just to bees you can do this in the real world too
