Chuck Wendig recently posted an article titled Lies Writers Tell. I don’t consider myself a writer, but I want to be one and I find myself telling these same lies. At the end of the article Chuck asks why I tell them. I never really thought about it until now. So, I’m going to answer them. Right now. Un-edited. Un-scripted. Question by question. Even the lies I don’t tell.
I got a message on Obsidian Portal today from a user called DissenterKnight. He found my Gotham Nights page and wrote to me. I’ve included his message so you can see what he said. I wrote a pretty lengthy response and I wanted to share it with all of you too. I talk a bit about getting into Smallville (a story I’m sure you’re all very familiar with), a bit about party-conflict in gaming, and the strengths of Smallville. I also do some shameless promotions for good measure. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.
I have ran my fair share of Batman games and today I want to discuss a few ideas I have had for the setting.
