I love Daniel Bryan, but I’m a little underwhelmed by the shirts WWE has made for him, so I made this one to show my support.
It, of course, also shows my support for the amazing Daniel Bryan song Adam WarRock made for me for my birthday.
Diggin’ this shirt!
31 Days of Holiday Music, Day 1: Julian Casablancas, I Wish It Was Christmas Today
Doggs, it’s Christmas season!
I don’t know if you know this, but I’m a PRETTY BIG fan of the holidays.
So get ready for some of my favorite holiday music over the next month.
I’ve been legit waiting for this since… probably June, if I had to guess.
Kicking things off, here is one of my absolute favorites. You may recognize this one from the equally delightful SNL version—I like both songs, but this one is more enjoyable to me as a straight rock song, whereas the SNL version is more simple, charming, and playful.
TMI Tuesday: since discussing how GM’s can drive players away with inappropriate, dismissive, or prohibitive behavior, what are the Corruption Points Commandments for a GM/DM?
1. All players are equal, regardless of race, gender, or knowledge base. Period.
2. All player characters are created equally, therefore all ideas should be treated equally.
3. Players come first. Every other concept is secondary to player enjoyment.
4. Instead of jumping to NO, find a way to say YES.
5. Players will find ways to subvert, ruin, undermine, and bypass any given situation at any given time. Expect and encourage this. This is their story as much as it is yours.
6. Game Mastering is a tag-team sport. Players always outnumber GMs five to one. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help.
7. Running a game is not easy. It is hard, often stressful work. Take a break every once in a while.
8. Table top games are riddled with social stigma. Invite someone who hasn’t played to your table. Reach out, and educate.
9. Provide encounters that challenge players intellectually, as well as mechanically.
10. Don’t ever drive your players away. You can’t do it without them.
