Hey everyone! It’s #GameMasterMonday here at #ShadesofVengeance!
This week our spotlight is on our GM, Andy!
Andy is a 38-year-old GM from Felixstowe and he has been playing the SOV games for around 5 years. Andy has been playing table-top RPG games for more than 20 years! He started out playing Warhammer and D&D but now plays a little bit of everything.
Andy enjoys going to gaming conventions with his current group that he runs campaigns with, which is actually where he came across Era: The Consortium at CON-Tingency 5 years ago.
Not only is Andy a GM, he is also the one who came up with the idea for the living campaign for Era: Survival. On our Discord Server, we have a channel titled “Hope Springs”, where the Living Campaign is held. He thought it would be nice to do something on a more personal scale than the Consortium Living Campaign. Survival is a story driven by the players and characters as much as it is the GM – which was Andy’s plan. He pitched the idea to Ed and they both thought it was great fun and a neat idea so they went for it!
Since Andy has such an expansive knowledge of #TTRPG ,we decided to ask him about the learning curve to playing Era games as opposed to others, he said “There’s very little math involved and that’s one of the reasons why I like it. I call it the 11 o’clock test – if you can play the game after 11 PM and still know what to do it’s easy.” Andy wants everyone who is interested in playing and all new players to know “don’t get bogged down with the rules, decide what you want to do and do it. Don’t think of the most productive or best thing to do, do what you want!”
Come meet Andy and our group of amazing GM’s today – you can play games for free on our Discord (https://discord.gg/Rqa8hdfqMx)!
