Interview with a GM - Richard

So to continue in the theme of interviewing each GM, we have up next Richard.

When did you first start playing RPGs and what were they?

Started with Live Role play when i was 14 i think and played for a few years, then attended a pen and paper game a couple of years later for one night. 
Didn't really get back into it until i was 25 and have been playing ever since. 
Larping was at Chislehurst Caves and woods in Sidcup. 
First pen and paper would have been D&D but no idea on which version, from 25 it was a Star Wars game.

What was the most memorable part of those sessions?

There's been a few but one that sticks in mind the most was playing a character whos tongue had been removed. 
This meant i had to act or draw out my plans when i was trying to communicate with the other party members.

Why did you start GMing?

I wanted to recreate some of the world from the Larp days so felt i would try and bring it to the table.

How long have you been GMing?

On and off for about 10 years

What systems have you GMed?

Predominantly my own, but recently 5e DnD

What are the pleasures and pitfalls of GMing?

Creating a throwaway name, for them to only become the main antagonist for the next 2 major campaigns

What was the most memorable part of the sessions you GMed?

Linking one of the PC background to one of the henchmen of the main antagonist only for the PC to forget their own background story

What is your current game about?

Wasn't planning to run, so its a mismatch of adventures that i am trying to tie together

What do you get out of GMing

Stress and Headaches?

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

Role Play Games: sessions from a Mad man This is my (Mark) personal RPG blog, atm the moment mainly for formulating the sessions I GM into an ongoing story, so things can be re-referenced (and or spikes my memory of bits I forgot to write about). Been pondering writing other bits about RPGs, but well we will see..
