|What are Uncle Figgy’s Guides?
In April of 1998, I finished work on a book of the collected experience of 17 years of roleplaying and 12 years of gamemastering (as of 1998, that is. I’ve been gaming since 1982 so you do the math. Man,it’s enough to make a person feel old. NOT!). This book, Uncle Figgy’s Guide to Good GameMastering, went online shortly thereafter. The response was overwhelming — with the book receiving an average of about 600 readers per month.
Uncle Figgy’s Guides are not rules to live (or play) by. Neither are they a statement of “my way is right and your way is wrong”. Basically, Uncle Figgy’s Guides are a reflection of the way I like to play, and they are all those things I have learned (mostly by analyzing the mistakes of others) that have helped me achieve the level of play that I enjoy (a very light, cinematic style). Just like anything else in the gaming world, feel free to take what you like and leave the rest.
