Reddit GM Advice: Stars & Wishes, Friends of My Enemies & Dead God Hints

Reddit Icon in front of my lovely rainbow dice from Dice Envy.

I made a list of 3 GM advice subreddits called RefAdvice.

In your post-game meditations, don’t think of them as screw ups. Think of those moments as things you want to do better next time. Write them down. But also write down things you did well. Maybe 3 things you did well and 1 thing you want to do better next time each session.

You could do stars and wishes after the game – with everyone saying STARS (things they loved) and WISHES (things they’d like to see more or less of next time). Here’s a link to me and my friends doing our post-game Stars & Wishes if that is helpful.

People are busy. If they are showing up, odds are the game is going well. I’ve been doing this glorious hobby for more than 30 years and there are still things I’m trying to do better. Get 1% better every game and you’ll do fine. Don’t be too hard on yourself.

I hope this was helpful. Have fun!

Who are the power guy’s enemies, people who might enjoy having a group of adventurers as catspaws, people who can annoy the powerful guy without being traced to them?

Maybe one of those folks reaches out through an intermediary and the social problem becomes a dangerous opportunity.

All of the statues are gone. The clerics say that the deity no longer wants to have their glory shown in mortal art.

Statues of saints ordained by that deity are crying blood.

The clerics can no longer cast spells but are making deals with devils to gain other powers to cover it up and also pushing their military holy orders to be more aggressive so that folks don’t notice.

Dead angels that have flung themselves to earth in agony and despair.
