Show Notes! We discuss some tips for the new GM. We specifically talk a bit about running Call of Cthulhu, and also give some general tips for the new GM. Jerry writes in about a RPG horror story about a legless PC. ¬†Brian writes in about “when the map comes out, the role playing stops.”

Another Brian writes in to tell us about a strange, but potentially awesome, school where they use role-playing to teach. Grey asks us where the sweet spot is for missing players. How many can you miss and still play, and at what point should you call the game?

Matt writes in about that infamous E. Gary Gygax quote about time keeping and defends one of the forefathers of our hobby. And our favorite MinMaxer from Chicago writes in with an awesome gaming story where min-maxing saved the day.
