Reading lots of fun and weird stuff, or informative interesting stuff, enhances the Gamemaster’s “game” tremendously. It’s one of the really great aspects of being a gamer. It’s hard to avoid. If you are a gamer, and especially a GM, you are always looking for inspiration, source material, and ideas for your game.
Sometimes it’s hard to keep your genres separated. You know – you start out in a fantasy setting, but then you watch Mad Max and get drawn into the post apocalyptic mindset, and soon your orcs are driving cars across the wasteland.
Is this your experience too? Is it just me?
Anyway, I’ve been reading all the Hellboy compilations. Well, not all of them. I’m on number three right now. Good stuff.
