CALL ME . . . JFRO-SENSEI



In yet another step on the road to utter nerd-dom, I have accepted the challenge set by my dear Dr S. to try my hand at Game Mastery. Coincidentally, this blog entry appeared at the same time, a sign that I must step up for all womankind. My days of being kept out of the all-guy D & D games in high school will be avenged! Also, as Dr. S pointed out, I have seen approximately 100 samurai movies and have several shelves of samurai manga, so our current game, Iron Dynasty, is kind of made for me.

My rule as Game Master will be firm but fair. Everyone will have to address me as sensei, because that's the name for the GM in Iron Dynasty (how awesome is that!) and puns will be dealt with severely. I promise not to make the players' characters die of embarrassing diseases like that one New Yorker short story. Really, it's all about fun and how anything is possible in role playing. Anything, that is, except for elves hacking computers, that's just silly!

I look forward to seeing you as a sensei! You have some big shoes to fill as Dr. S is amazing, but I think it will be quite fun and engrossing for all of us! I hope you enjoy it as much as us as well!
"Mercy is for the weak!"
"YES SENSEI!"

Oh, and I am a testament to World of Warcraft not killing Dice RPGs!

Yes Sansei Mistress,

I too will aid you in your quest for vengeance against those high school D & D misogynists. I wonder what was going on at those games??

Iron Dynasty was made for you, kung fu, swords, and steampunk, they should have named it ASHen Dynasty or something!

And I am a good talent scout, my whirlwind of fury. So mediocre game masters of the world take note, the JFro is on the scene!
