One of the hallmarks of a good Gamemaster is to learn to say Yes as often as you can to your players. If you say "yes," they get to do things that they want, and they have fun. If you learn to say "Yes, but" that's when games get really fun. Is it possible to take this too far? Maybe. Gamemastering is hard, but everyone should give it a shot. I think if you've run a game at least once, it makes you a better player.

The Web Series

When I was a kid, there were a ton of values based programs on television. I would venture to say that, a lot of that programming helped contribute to my being a good person. There are the obvious examples: Mr. Rogers, School House Rock, Reading Rainbow. . . But there were also plenty of others, that you may not have thought to categorize that way: Transformers, G.I. Joe, . . . Dungeons and Dragons. They all contained messages about being good to one another, being truthful, honest, honorable, etc. --They were pretty overt about it, and it was contained in programming that was adventurous and fun.

I would like to create an 80's style animated show that is values based and entertaining for kids, and adults.

We're All Game features an ensemble cast of School Age friends learning how to be better people through gaming, and learning to be better gamers through lessons learned in life.


The Web Comic

Right now I'm just one person, with no budget--We're All Game was conceptualized as an animated series, but for now I'm going to start with a web comic.
