What are the biggest mistakes a newbie GM can make?
I've played with GMs who I had bad experiences with, but I've never had to see the game from their side of the table so its hard to make judgement calls on where they went wrong. As an up-and-coming first time GM, what are the biggest mistakes to avoid? What are the worst experiences you've had with GMs or as GMs, and how could they have been avoided in your opinion?
I'm trying to come up with a third evil monster faction for a campaign I'm doing. My idea is there's three groups, all ultimately serving one or other horrible lovecraftian god thing attacking the world.
The evil gods are very vaguely based on Hades, Posidon and Zeus, so a group from underground/hell (standard orcs and goblins and what have you with demons at higher levels), the group from the sea are Saxon/Viking/Sea People deep ones.
But I can't think of a group to be from the sky/storms and Zeus.
Standing on the massive stone platform you crafted for the Elven colony ship to sit upon briefly enables you to look out across the battlefield. The rolling hills that the remaining armies do battle on are the slowly skeletonizing remains of the fallen. The Nazis and the scorpion demons that you took control over are hardly able to maintain their defensive line now that the armies have been whittled down to just five armies.
The mages of the oceanic army constantly generate massive tidal waves to scatter their enemies and carry their troops forward. The scorpion demons... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Magical inversion – Hestia has been studying how to invert the magic of the curses and spells she knows. Unfortunately without greater understanding of how spells are actually created the main objective of this research has failed. Hestia did however create the ability to cast spells that result in an odd form of anti-magic. ‘Negative’ spells seem to have impressed the succubus mage, since they operate similarly to counterspells but are much more highly specialized. Hestia has determined by testing that negative elements... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>Colony ship restoration – Despite your impressive repair job the internal systems of the ship are severely damaged. The elves are resistant to Hestia’s drones entering the ship, so while external hull repairs have been completed the remaining repairs will take some time to complete. Hestia theorizes that the reason for the crash is the result of the elven colony ship’s propulsion system, nuclear warheads were used to accelerate the vessel but there are no systems in place to control the vessel at speeds of any significant fraction of the speed of...

>>43462702 >ignore them, move on Smells like trouble >>43462530 Saw some leaked videos, opening looks good, the voiced protaganist thing doesn't look bad so far. Combat has definitly seen an improvement, and while the graphics arn't mind blowing amazing, they still look like an improvement from F3 and FNV. To me anyway.
>Player tells me point blank that he doesn't care about what the NPCs backstories are or why they're doing what they're doing and that he wishes that they were "at least twice as fast" to point us in the general direction of the next thing to fight
I hate GMing and I don't want to do it anymore
Shit I don't know why this is hitting me as hard as it is but what is the fucking point
>>43462455 Are you one of those faggot GMs who can't stop fapping over their NPCs? Because that sounds more like "fuck, stop reading us your fanfiction and get on with it!" than "i don't care abouit this game!1!"
>>43462132 I don't see her zombie dragon lasting very long on Jund. It's likely already being rotted from within by fungus's and slimes. The other dragons will see it as an affront to them and wipe her out in short order.
Plus I've never really liked "And I will have my vengeance" characters.
As for how the Shards have been interacting? The flavour text of Monstrous Carabid sums it up pretty nicely. >What happens when a plane of predators collides with four... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>43462273 Yeah, there's almost certainly war between the shards, but I'm personally wondering whether we'll see them emerge as proper factions. While they had visual and cultural identities before, they didn't understand their situation well enough to set up proper factionalization--there was a lot of internal dissent and so on. And then, in Alara Reborn, everything sort of blurred together.

>>43461869 I'm on the fence about them despite owning a bunch of sci-fi stuff, it's very hard to convince anyone to actually use them. 6mm gets you more tanks, 28mm gets you... well it gets you the people who are weird about playing with anything smaller despite the advantages in cost (especially for terrain) and less storage space required.
Not helped by the state of the industry being a massive collection of garage operations with very few ranges being 'complete' and far, far too many generic armoured humans and vehicles that look less sci-fi than shit that is actually in service.
That said, there are some gems, and some great systems. 15mm makes for some great skirmish games up to company level games for anything involving shooting because there's far more space on the table to use. It's easier to make full sets of terrain for so battlefields can look far more complete for far less time and money than the equivalent in 28mm. I think 20mm if it were popular would be ideal for the platoon sized skirmish stuff though. Works very well for 20th century+ historicals due to all the support available in scale model kits and die-cast vehicles.
>>43461869 The big problem with 15mm is lack of widespread, high-polish "deal". 10mm has Dropzone Commander, 28mm has a myriad games, 15mm has a whole bunch of unassociated lines with some generic rules that are often (not always!) very old-style in their presentation.

Someone messed up the archive tags, and so from now on I'll be doing it. Search for both Xeno quest and xenomorph quest, from here on it will be tagged as Xenoquest.
---------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome back, friends, for the next edition of Xenoquest: Home alone traps edition.
She sits at the far end of the table, a smile spreads across her face, cock sure she speaks “As I said sir, we were very thorough, the first has taken root and the ship is now in the first stages of infestation.”
Another person sitting opposite the woman leans forward and responds “Good, and the other 4, how long until touchdown?” Leaning back he produces a cigar and cuts the end off, bringing it to his lips he strike a match and sucks down sharply, exhaling slowly with eager eyes he waits for a response.
“The ship has been loaded and has left the hangar”, she says “We expect its arrival within the following week, further more; the USS Librans Pride is on its way through the system, I expect a distress call from Colonial 1, before the marines leave.” The woman finishes her smile stretching even further.
The man lifts himself from his hair, walks from the table to stare out of a large window looking out into the great black abyss of space. “You and your team have done remarkably well, Michelle. I believe congratulations are in order.”
With only 3 marines remaining, and the battle clearly lost, they make a break for the door, screaming into their radios “AMBUSH, AMBUSH, EVERYONES DEAD, THEY FUCKING KNEW WE WERE COMING, HELP HEL-“ The Marine is interrupted as a facehugger leaps from the shadows and buries it’s proboscis down his throat, arms wrapping tightly around the cranium and its tail straddling the neck, the hive grows. The other 2 marines turn to fire and are pounced by Raptor and Dildo, their weapons knocked from their grasp, Dildo and Fixer Hold their heads still as 2 more facehuggers impregnate...

ChatterBox excitedly turns to Spooky in the grips of a eureka moment “My Queen, it just occurred to me how inefficient our reproductive abilities actually are, I recall as I studied one of our eggs I learned that we Are, in fact, capable of growing several embryos within a host at any given time if we were to somehow increase the embryos metabolic rate within a specific host.” ChatterBox stops and thinks how best to explain this phenomena, he continues speaking “Spores that occur naturally in our organic, hive webbing allow Xenomorphs to run faster, move with surprising...

The drone dildo sent outside to scout the forest, has been stalking and observing the herd of mammalian creatures, she is greeted by an opportunity; a young calf still impressive in size has fallen behind. In the blink of an eye, the calf is abducted and rushed back to the hive by the drone. With the area ripe with life, the drone returns with proof. Presenting her Queen with the terrified creature, Spooky wastes no time having the first test subject for the twin Chestburster alteration impregnated. I wonder what the resulting larvae will mature into?
