    Yeah, I tend to have my Johnsons be mostly on the up-and-up as well. If you can't trust them at least 90% of the time, there's no reason to deal with them at all, and it makes the betrayals that do happen hit harder, rather than just being another 'sudden yet inevitable betrayal'.

    It's actually rather obviously how they're supposed to be run (at least in 3e, I dropped 5e after noticing the game had shifted more towards promoting Pink Mohawk). I mean, in a one shot the betrayal is expected, it's much more shocking to me there if the Johnson is completely honest and keeps their end of the bargain, but in an ongoing campaign you actually need the ability to trust your Johnsons. Especially as I like to buy a few contacts, and will usually have somebody marked as a regular Johnson. Deckmeister or Mechanic, Fixer, Friend on the Force, Johnson, Friend in a Mega, others, that's my normal priority in contacts.

    Honestly got an itch to try out vehicle riggers next time I play Shadowrun, my feckers normally have a modded car or bike but having a host of souped up vehicles and a control rig sounds like fun

    session zero of the campaign. we've got our usual suspects: VN, farren, and kaht. we've got VB as backup. if you binge the quotes thread, you'll find that VN is a doctor that solves his problems with c4, farren shoots through the fourth wall, kaht founded monsanto and VB is an extreme omnivore and a pc-controlled blunt weapon. of our two new players, one can't hold his drink, the other took a backseat to understand the universe. i guess the newbie tried to out-YOLO the usual suspects. he actually decapitated 4 people using a plastic door. the rest of the group just high-fived him and egged him on. i can't wait for the quotes and banned things this group will come up with. yes, we're all above drinking age. yes, we've got the impulse control of 12 year olds in a candy shop. no, we've got no concept of restraint, subtlety, or sensible ideas.

    I've actually had a GM give out a pre-campaign questionaire (part of which was used to generate characters), which included the question 'willingness to brine GM (rate from one to ten)'.

    I've had another group were bribing the GM was considered acceptable, but the GM was supposed to spread the reward amongst the group. In practice it worked more like 'GM doesn't buy their beer', but there were occasional trips to the bar to avoid TPK.

Stylistic innovations, contorted story lines or none, exotic or genderless pronouns, internal inconsistencies, the recipe for preparing your lover as a cannibal banquet: feel free. If what you have to say is important and/or difficult to follow, use the simplest language possible. If the reader doesn't get it then, let it not be your fault.

    in the french fantasy webradio-play and comic book (and later board game and pen and paper) dungeon of naheulbeuk, there is a tribe of leek-people. i'm pretty sure that those children count as produce.

    also:

    *it's spelled "orphanage", not "all-you-can-eat buffet".
