Bachelor Parties for GMs
I try not to bring my personal life into the blog but… In a few weeks, I’m getting married. My best friend has hounded me about a bachelor party (to be fair, she hounded me some, then she let up when she realized that I really didn’t want one). But now that I have some distance from the whole pressure of the situation, I want to tell you what would have been the best thing ever… seriously, I’m so incredibly sad that I didn’t think of this sooner.
Hear me out. If you have a gamer in your life who is getting married, and if said gamer is the “guy who always runs the games,” then the absolutely best thing you could do for them? Get together the people they enjoy gaming with most and just have a marathon game day where you all (wait for it) run games for them!
Don’t get me wrong – I love running games and I love being relied on to run games. But if my friends ever want to do something nice for me… dice, character sheets, and 24 hours of their unadulterated attention locked on to providing the GM with adventures. That would pretty much be heaven. I mean, I get it… I’m a dork. But how fun would that be?
We get old, we get married, we move all over hell and half of Georgia, everyone pops out babies… and gaming time evaporates like you wouldn’t believe. It was the perfect excuse and I totally let everyone down… so heed my words… gaming bachelor party.
Maybe it’s just me, but I think that would be just about perfect. Suz, you’re off the hook. No worries. Maybe we can make this happen anyway – some other time.
Anyway, life’s busy right now – and I caught the crud last week – but I promise to return to posting about something other than my ridiculous love of Amber… I will. Really.
As always, thanks for reading.
