Melancholia of Disappointing Players II

Well, since a couple of people have asked in comments how the “situation” is going, I will share.
Well, I feel a bit better, I’ve calmed myself down. I do work myself up in a lather sometimes, as anyone who has spent real time with me can attest. I am not going to be bloodthirsty and kill off Hadrian, although that whole line of conversation did give me an idea, though, and I am going to run with that.
As far as the issues brought up in the Epistle of the unhappy player to the GM, they are still there, and I will try and keep them in mind. Even if the criticism is not useful per se, the next time a scene like the Fount comes around, I will try and catch myself. Some of the personal concerns addressed–I will try and work on.
Oh, and I ordered that Robin Laws book. I have to thank Ginger for mentioning it. I sort of knew it existed, but since it seems to be so well received, I will bite the bullet. Besides, I’m overdue from ordering a “care package” from Amazon 🙂

  1. You’re welcome for the recommendation. I’d been meaning to reread it, but hadn’t been able to find it until we cleaned out.
    If you think your player has a legitimate beef, you should listen. But not all beefs are legitimate, and sometimes you may need to stand your ground to be fair to other players.

  2. I don’t know all the circumstances surrounding the situation, but it sort prompted me to pose the question I did last night.
    SB is huge with background, and that’s the way it is.. You can’t do much about that.
    But does the material sometimes make adjudicating a large scenes difficult- especially when you’re striving to be true to the PC’s and the NPC’s as well as be true to the story?
