Main Topic: Part One – Cultivating a Gaming Group
Should every player play in every game?
Choosing the right players: setting & system preferences or limitations, RP level, action level, exploration level
Playing with random players- game store, internet, or message board
When to bow out?
Main Topic: Part 2 – Setting up Fantastic Locations & Situations
The idea: something exotic, interesting, challenging
How important is it to make a location fantastic?
Show the mundane consistently to accentuate the fantastic
How can you generate these neat ideas? Movies, comics, books, paintings/pics (internet), modules/adventures
How important is it to most games that you have these places?
How do you place such ideas in a world trying to maintain some verisimilitude?
