The Game is For The Players

In the process of stepping down as ST in the LA game, I've been giving some thought to what I've learned since the first game I ran in 1992. I've run a lot of games since then. I've played in a lot too - call it dorky, geeky, or lame; but gaming is one of my hobbies. I'd be dense if, along the way, I hadn't learned a thing or two.

So I'm stepping down and I'd like to see the game survive my departure gracefully. So I'm formulating a few ideas to leave behind as pointers to subsequent GM's and really, any one running a game anywhere. It's not a work of genius or anthing, and I'm certainly not authoritative - but who knows, it might be helpful.

As I was saving the document, which I've been noodling with for a while, it chose the first line as the default file-name. "The Game is For The Players". I was going to name it something else, but honestly - if anyone remembers just one thing, I hope that's it. All else stems from that one concept.
