Peeneel Testiclees! Yes, we’re talking about what’s in a player character’s name in this episode. How do you handle those players that insist on have a player character with a goofy name? It could be as easy as saying, “seriously? you want to name your character Peeneel Testiclees? No.” Or, you could roll with it and make it something you handle within the game. What’s the goofiest name you’ve run into at the table?
GM screens are great for referencing rules without having to page through a thick rpg rule book. Some of us choose not to use them because they can be intrusive and create a physical barrier between the players and the game master. Use them or not, there can be some pretty creative screens out there – be it fold out plastic Castle Greyskull or using cd jewel cases, they can add some pizzaz to the rpg game table.
