Bad Gamers - That same guy again
I used to work Sunday afternoon's at the local game shop. I went into work one day and the guy who I worked with said "aren't you using The Black Tower in your game? Kevin was reading through it yesterday." I thanked him, and made some changes for the next session. In one of the rooms there was a very powerful sword hidden in a mattress. When they came to that room Kevin went straight for the bed and instantly found the sword. I don't remember what cursed sword I replaced the original with, but his reaction was classic ... "THAT'S NOT WHAT was in ... " Then a long pause, then silence.

I am surprised the sword was not replaced by a pea (but then the player may not have gotten the reference). But changing it to a cursed sword will definately teach him a lesson. Especially if it is a talking sword that loves to heckle.

i thought those books were just basic guidelines.


Like, i have a few campaigns from D&D and this Fuzzy Heroes book, and i'm probably going to combine them into a storyline. But they're certainly not going to be exactly like in the books, and once you introduce the players, we may go off the grid entirely.

Generally with modules, I just use the maps ... but back then I ran things pretty much the way they were written.

I haven't used any information in a module or supplement for 20 years. I still use a lot of the old maps I have (especially Judges Guild), but I haven't read through a module in years.

Now if I can just find local folks to play with who are a "Daddy tell me a story" group.
