Remember, the bug, white, windowless, unmarked vans are where you get the best candy!
- “Because I said so” is not treating your players like crap. It can be trying to create a good game for your players. Sometimes, it takes trust between players and DMs to make a good game; if you trust and respect your DM you take “because I said so” and live with it. That isn’t to say that a DM shouldn’t trust and respect their players either – they should. If a player has an idea the DM isn’t sure of, he should hear the player out and not just knee-jerk.
- It all boils down to the GM. It is the Gm’s responsibility to regulate the power of his campaign. The Gm does all the prep work. He makes the rulings of what goes and doesnt in the campaign world. Not saying he shouldnt compromise here and there with the players, after all its a team effort. If a GM wants to disallow something in his campaign, but not wanting to give his reasons because it might be something the player has to discover then he has legitimate authority to say No, because I said so.
- since I’ve been smacked down on several occasions for insulting others, I’m going to just have to ask you to use your imagination on this one.
- You’ve been given a cure to your problem and you’ve rejected it.
- I’m glad you’ve learned to live in a constant state of satori. Most people haven’t. So, oh wise Buddha, please take your eyes off heaven for just a moment and realize that most of the rest of us are still walking the path.
The GM gets to decide what he will allow at his table.
- I await the next installment of the Chilling Tale of the DM Who Said ‘No!’
- I have never given a “because I said so” before. But I have said no, many times. To me a “I don’t want that in my game” is all the explanation needed most times.
- I always love how people use the “oh I’m an artist” excuse to act like selfish, narcissistic pieces of crap. news flash- artistic talent does not excuse one from not acting like an effing toolbag.
- I don’t care how good a backstory someone has they are not going to play a Half Dragon Celestial Weresquid in my campaign.
If you can’t trust a guy in a van, then who can you trust?
