Discussion: Looking Back on 2016

Welp, I didn't get a post up for Wednesday and this is going up late. I am really bad at this on vacations of late. Sorry folks.

That said, I didn't want to leave the year on a Christmas discussion. New Years is a great time for reflecting and looking back, and with gaming it's not much different. So, how was your 2016?

All in all, I'm pretty happy with my games. I had one monumental screw up (good bye 7th Sea game :( ) but aside from that things went well. Best of all, I feel I improved as a GM, and per some of my players they've noticed it as well. There are still things I want to improve going forward, but that's something for next year and not this year, right?

In particular, I feel I've gotten better at handling NPCs and in playing them out. I'm still really bad at it, but I'm getting over that hump slow and steady. I think Critical Role is helping a lot and being able to see a really talented GM handle his NPCs in a game I'm not a part of so I can just analyze and enjoy.

What about you?

We'll be back sometime next week (probably Wednesday) for 2017. Fun fact, 2017 will mark the 7th year for this blog. Kinda nuts! See folks then.

  1. I did not get nearly as much playing and GMing of RPGs done in 2016 as I would have liked, but much of that was external factors.

    Though if we are both at GenCon 2017, let us game together. I will GM L5R for you again if you would like.

    Oh, and a Happy New Year to you!
