    Maybe he has a special plot for him?

    More like special drama. I seem to remember his ex-roommate being involved in this LARP…

    The paranoia a GM can inspire in players is an amazing thing…

  4. I swear to god. If he asks Dusting to make up with Wayne i’m gonna flip my shit.

  5. That’s my guess as well.

    If I were running this kind of LARP, I’d make a point of being seen taking everyone into another room for a private chat. The first thing I would tell all of them in there is “when you leave, just tell people that you were just in here so that I could do this with everyone.” The second thing would be some bits of secret, (or ‘secret’ because I’m telling everyone), info that they happen to have, most of which are completely meaningless to anything that is happening.

    Hmmm, well this could be two things. One, the DM has a good idea for a part of the plot that Dustin can be involved in, without his character getting murdered right off the bat. Or two, it’s a trick to get him to talk to Wayne.

    hmm… that emphasis on OTHER games…. hopefully nothing happens to stir up lingering resentment….

    I have a feeling he’s going to talk to clear the air, make sure nothing like the Vampire LARP is going to happen again.

    DM knows how things went down in the other game and depending on how they DM, might be doing the following:
    a. Establishing some ground rules to make sure things are clear between the GM, the Player (Dustin) and what is expected so that there isn’t a repeat of what caused Dustin to leave the other game.
    b. Is delivering a warning that that behavior won’t be tolerated.
    c. Sympathizes with Dustin’s side and wants to put him at ease.
    d. Is telling him that the player with whom Dustin had an issue is also playing and wants to make sure “things are cool.”
    e. Has a Special Role planned that will flip Dustin’s point of view on end when he ends up being on the other end of a similar situation that caused him to leave his Vampire game.

    He’s going to learn that Wayne is the main Game Master here!

    …I doubt it will have anything to do with Wayne being in the game – back when Changeling first started, Dustin and Wayne were both wishing they had time to add Changeling to their LARP schedule, but had too many other things (i.e. Games) to do.

  14. When I DMed D&D, I used notes. One of my rules was that you could not show what I wrote to other players. Tell them? I rarely forbade that — there were the odd cases — but show? NO.

    It allows for roleplaying and other shenanigans.

    A special briefing like this? It looks like great fun could be had.

    Option e (ending up on the other end) is impossible: Dustin wouldn’t cheat to kill people then gloat about it, nor would he call victims of cheating overreacting bad sports.

  16. I agree with Michael Chandra. Option e is not going to happen. Dustin is emphatically not that kind of person. He may play hard, but he does not cheat and he is not vicious.

  17. Nessie Says:

    My bet is this private chat is to setting down ground rules. Dustin didn’t handle himself well when things didn’t go his way, and thinking about the game from the other players perspective, he wasn’t being a good sport about the whole thing. He sure had a right to be angry, but not enough to ruin the experience for the other players, and the gm’s that work so hard to put everything together. I’m sure Jim wants to make sure that none of that will happen to him or the players in his game.

    100% disagree with you.

    Dustin wasn’t a bad Sport. He didn’t ruin anyones experience.

    Cheater Mc Cheatyface was the one being a bad Sport and ruining the experience, assisted by GM Mc. Fuckthingsup

  19. The fastest way to ensure toxicity in the Weregeek comment’s; Have an opinion about how Dustin and Wayne have handled themselves since the vampire game.

    Bonus points if you think that both parties share fault, cause for some reason, people are taking this REALLY personally. >.<

  20. Michael Chandra Says:

    I can, however, perfectly understand setting up ground rules so that Dustin knows he can actually trust the GMs here. Discussing how to handle things when he’s uncomfortable with a GM ruling, stuff like that.
