Question Poll: - Gm Style

after reading this

http://chattydm.net/2007/11/22/mini-...-and-the-evil/

I wondered what kind of GMs my fellow players/posters have around the globe...

I'll make this poll "anonymous" so we don't have a lot of pissed of GMs he he

I must admit over the years I have experienced all 3 categories - possibly some others aswell.

with respect to all GMs

(if I find something similar for players I will post it)

- The General

I'm nearly always the GM but I do occassionally get to play in a Harnmaster campaign which has been run for the past, I dunno, 16 or more years by MajorPo (the poster, not the PC that he runs in my campaign heh heh). I think the Evil GM definition in the above link describes him quite well.

I guess I colud be thrown into the 'bad' catagory for lack of input, but I think my style is to try to tell the story and let the players fill in the gaps. When asked "what can we do?" I tell them what I tell folks in RL, "anything you want to as long as you're willing to pay the price." If you do something 'stupid' you're going to pay for it some way. I use a freelance type of game, where die rolls are never known to players, something I learned when I first started gaming. It keeps the mystery there.

ie: Joe shoots at a man 200 meters away. The man goes down, but.. was he hit, or did he take cover? Now if Joe rolled the die and KNEW it was a hit, he'd just notch his gun and continue as there was no threat. But is there? The unkown is what keeps people honest.

Rule player, roll player and role player. I prefer the role player.

I am most certainly an "other".

I've gone through those other steps of GMing, but progressed beyond them.

So would you call that a black belt in Twilight-fu?

I've been told that I'm a pretty good GM when it comes to face-to-face games... My players said they really enjoyed how i described things, and they really enjoyed my NPCs. I really enjoy running and playing face-to-face RPGs, i've been looking for someone to game with for a while, but haven't found anyone around me for that so far.

I think the "Evil GM" should be renamed to the "Competent GM" cause I think he's the only one who's running the game right
