I found about this particular event from [livejournal.com profile] laurenmitchell, and thought it merited an entry.

So: for anyone on my flist who's ever called for spot checks, rolled dice behind a screen, had a carefully detailed plot ruined by an insane player stunt, made a brilliant on-the-fly plot out of an insane player stunt, said 'no' to a ridiculous character idea, said 'yes' to a ridiculous character idea, rubbed their hands together with glee as the Big Bad rolls brilliantly, put the dice aside and made stuff up wholesale, laid a series of deadly traps, engineered a major conspiracy, imperiled the kingdom, robbed the king, beggared the king, deposed the king, betrayed the king, kidnapped the king, killed the king, or any and all of the above with the queen, princess, prince, duke, duchess, baroness, or baron, built a pile of skulls for a dragon to sleep on, gathered a pile of treasure for a dragon to sleep on, created a megacorporation board for a dragon to sleep on, been loved, loathed, lauded, or laughed at for influencing (or not!) the PCs fortunes, played a thousand and one NPCs, scribbled encounter notes for 2-20 kobolds, scribbled encounter notes for 2-20 shoggoths, or had dice, chips, pencils, erasers, or other improvised missiles thrown at them for a truly diabolical plot twist:

Happy GM's day!

Let us all celebrate by hurting our players' characters in places they didn't even know they could hurt, because secretly? They love it when we're evil.

On a less happy 4th of March note, this day also marks one year since the death of Ernest Gary Gygax.

It is also a week of massive sales on rpgnow, if you're the PDF liking sort.

I'd consider it, if I hadn't just spent a somewhat-significant sum on IPR buyi- ooh. $1 shinies.

...but significantly fewer not-d20 $1 shinies. *rolls to stab the d20 system*

And tomorrow is game night! I shall be extra-devious when I prep the not-as-abandoned-as-they-think wizard's tower this evening.
