This week James takes on a new listener question: When my players come up with what seems like a reasonable bargain or deal, my antagonists accept, as long as they’re not giving up more than they originally intended to. The greatest *play* experiences I’ve had came from GMs who created hardline antagonists who would accept nothing less than total acceptance of their demands. Overcoming them gave me a thrill that I want to give my players, but whenever I try to run these guys, my senses of fairness and logic kick in and I accept a reasonable solution.
Friend of the show John Patrick Coan guest-hosts this week as James was supposed to leave early and never does. We bring brothers Mark and Scott Piebenga on to discuss things they don’t want the other to know.
