Guest Author's Note: "It's important to take breaks.

That's it, that's the note. I'm taking a break myself. Author's notes are hard and I've had a long week.

(I'll have more to say Tuesday. : P)"

Story time

A time in which you make everyone to take a break.

Once upon a time, when I was GMing, I ended the session. Everyone playing the game had to take a break until next week.

This is a true story, and it has happened more than once. ;)

Ah, the joys of your first time DMing. You want to make something simple: save the world, get the item, be a hero. That's all. But the players, even if they're new themselves, want the complex stories. Want the reason, the need, want the epic LOTR style story.

Then the poor DM is ripping their hair out

This kind of thing is why I cribbed a rule from the Feng Shui games - the GM sets the scene, and it's the player's part to figure out just how and why they ended up here.

When you GM, always take notes on what motivates your players/characters. A lot of times they'll give away those details in OOC discussions during a break, and they might not even notice that. So they'll feel quite happy when you spring those in the adventure later to hook them in.

I'm having some trouble with that in my current campaign. Mostly because one player (a really cool guy I was a fellow PC in another campaign with) keeps wanting me to get more development for one of his relationships… with another party member. Buddy, that is the one thing in the entire game that isn't my job.

Ah, yeah... that's much more complex than a simple encounter set up. Especially if that third player isn't interested. He'll have to work that out with the other PC.
