What Type of RPG Player Are You?

C’mon! Even I have to admit that I’ve had way too many introspective and bleargh posts lately. I think it is past time for a side trip on the Amusing Waste of Time Express, destination: RPG Town. While this quiz is primarily geared towards the tabletop geeks, I’m sure those of you who play online games can appreciate it as well.


What Type of RPG Player (Not Character) Are You?

You scored as: Storyteller

The Storyteller is in it for the plot: the sense of mystery and the fun of participating in a narrative that has the satisfying arc of a good book or movie. He enjoys interacting with well-defined NPCs, even preferring antagonists who have genuine motivations and personality to mere monsters. To the Storyteller, the greatest reward of the game is participating in a compelling story with interesting and unpredictable plot threads, in which his actions and those of his fellow characters determine the resolution.

With apologies to Robin Laws.

Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life

I was reminded of this via email today after one of you twits read my last post decided to call me on it. Thank you my friend. I appreciated your candor and frank wisdom more than you might realize.

I do tend to get ever so emo and overdramatic about my current woes but you’re right, in the big picture they don’t mean shite and life is bigger than all the little worries we each have. I’ve known this instinctively for awhile and I’ve tried not to let my life overwhelm me but it still helps to hear someone else tell me this from time to time. Thanks.

In an effort to completely throw off the stigma that Mondays are all bad, I had an amazingly good interview today somewhere other than my current hell job and I suspect very strongly that I’ll get it (course if I don’t, it’ll be twice the blow to my ego but I’m not going to burn that bridge till later). I go in for a second interview tomorrow, so we shall see. *does the hopeful happy dance*
