My Table Rules (Revised and Updated!)

Nyaricus

First Post
So, I did a big-little overhaul of my Table Rules as featured over in this thread, and... here we go again! As usual, I appreciate all feedback to my set of Table Rules and I tried to address every issue brought up in the other thread, which I believe I did :)

If anyone has anything more to add, I'd love to hear it!

cheers,

Clipboards are only a dollar in Canada?!? ;)

Thanks for sharing. It's great to see stuff like this. My favorite is the clause about meat pizza. Yo, Carnivores, represent!

I have no real feedback to offer other than, "that's really nice of you to do up front."

Although $10 a piece? You people are expensive!

The detailing of the rules looks good - the only thing I would question is: is it necessary?

For me gaming is just as much about "hanging with the guys" as it is progressing the story. Of course, we have a long-distance group, so there is a lot of joking to be made up each time we meet.

If the players you're with aren't familiar with you, or perhaps there have been incidents in the past, the list seems to cover everything nicely. Other than that, I honestly don't see the need.

:lol: Yeah, that "Rule of Brian" came up because Brian, a very good friend of mine, got fed up about all our pep/bacon/onion and pep/beef/roasted red pepper pizzas. I mean, *I* love 'em, but he's all about the meat lovers :p:D:D

Yeah, I've had some problem players and had some other players which could have been awesome, but were simply mediocre. I just wanted to show my expectations and give others an understanding of what they should be bringing to the table.

Well, shoot me if I'm wrong (please don't if I am though ;)), but I think I said "about 10 bucks". In any case, that covers dinner, snacks and drinks with ease, and it puts forth the expectation that you gotta supply your part.

Or they just east A LOT of pizza.
As a westerner, I resent that statement ;)

Yeah, you pretty much nailed my situation. I'm gaming with people I've never gamed with before, and while some are familiar to me, some aren't really familiar with the game itself. One guy mainly plays Warhammer, another played D&D in 2e, another has only played Vampire: The Masquerade, another has played 3.5, but was fairly new to the game when his group fell apart about a year ago, so he's still green, and finally my girlfriend, who has wanted to play, has never played before in her life.

So this little document is a good basis for what I want in my games, and helps the players understand what they should be bringing to my table - well, at least it definitely seems like a good basis because the feedback thus far has been very positive :)

Any more?

cheers,

Better than well, thanks. All is right in the world of Fru. ;)
Haha, well that's good :D Things have been going well for me too; university is going swimmingly, my band is getting the drummer *and* the bassist we've been wanting (well, needing) for the past year and I have a new D&D group starting up :cool: So, I've been busy, but happy about it all!

cheers,

P.S. Any more feedback on my Table Rules from the *checks* 67 people who downloaded a copy? I'd LOVE to hear back from you!

If it solves the problems that you run into on a regular basis, then I'd say you've done your job well. However, some things just feel like a waste of paper.

Don't Cheat? Don't damage my things? Let me know if you're not going to be here? These aren't house rules you should have to establish with anyone you let into your house. I think this is something assumed by all players when they walk through the door. I know you game with people you've never met before and due to that you think establishing these rules are necessary. Even still, it feels a bit much.

This document begs a lot of questions. How often does your roster change? Have simple social mores been broken every single week? I think you'd go a lot further by telling someone outright when they act poorly than write something like this.

I gotta be honest. If I moved to a new city, looked up a group, and got these rules handed me first thing. I'd see it as a red flag.
