Whoa nice, I'm glad Griffin is DM again because I couldn't get through the Graduation arc, too much structure

Also hopefully this means fewer people trying to prove Travis is Extremely Problematic Actually rather than just a well-meaning dingus you don't like

@Louisa Dissapointed this isn't about Taz the tasmanian devil.

@Louisa Griffin is a DM I've always looked up to; Grad was, well,, not something I'd look up to structure-wise, lmao. I'm lookin forward to Griffin DMing again lol

TAZ 

@jacethechicken yeah! I myself would probably DM too much like Travis— building a world in my own mind at the expense of listening to the players— and I'm so impressed by how Griffin can tell a story and roll with what the players want too

TAZ 

@Louisa @jacethechicken I think improv is probably more enjoyed by players than anything you write. We had a whole encounter once where I was inventing it all as they went and the players thought I had written my ass off, but it was just like two sentences.

That takes good players as much as a good DM too

@InternetEh @jacethechicken last time I played a 5E game we were all pirates and we kept picking up NPCs on different adventures, to join our pirate crew

If I was DM I never would have allowed that, it would make me nuts, but the friend who was DMing is a good sport (probably because he's a high school teacher)

TAZ 

@Louisa @jacethechicken yes, that would be a valuable skill! One of my players teaches HS French, and she is maybe the most reasonable one. lol

We had a sea adventure and picked up new crew members and NPCs a lot, but we all kind of mutually forgot about it most of the time

@jacethechicken @Louisa I got through Graduation but it took *resolve*, I did it for the characters, and it felt very much like Travis's first awkward outing DMing

TAZ 

@LilyVers @jacethechicken I really like the one-offs Justin has DMed, like the donor episodes Elementary and Lords of Crunch, but I guess he doesn't want to do a big one

TAZ 

@Louisa quin and I are listening to amnesty right now but we will definitely listen to this concurrently

TAZ 

@Aleums nice! I keep thinking I might do a relisten from the beginning, it's such a good narrative

TAZ 

@Louisa oof thank god they just let griffin DM again, i might actually start listening again
