Writes second email

I was walking my dog and listening to Gaming and BS episode 40.  I must have gotten bored because before I knew it my mind was wandering and I came up with this.  Let me know what you think.

There once were two men of success

Who spoke with great verve and finesse

Sean and Brett know the art

And at first they seem smart

But wait! they’re just full of BS

Topic of Discussion

What won’t you put into your game as GM or Player?

  • Is there anything that you or your group find to be taboo in your games?
  • What is the reason?
  • Are there things you’d only run with “the right group” but never anywhere else?
  • Do you think it’s good or bad to avoid those things?
