The thread in which we are thankful

A counter to the thread in which we rant thread.

Player: I am grateful as a DM when you take your own time to assist your other players when they have questions about math, or a rule, or how something on their character works.

Players: I am very grateful for those of you who show up on time, every time, and are reliable. It means more than you know.

Old manager: Thank you for teaching me one of the most important sentences ever: nothing reasonable should ever be unreasonably denied.

Thankful for the generosity of the gaming community. Yes, there are jerks and gatekeeping and nerd rage, but there are also incredibly talented hobbyists, eager and willing to share. I choose to believe they are in the majority.

Thankful to the GMs and players who have given me a lot of great memories!

And the designers who have given us more games than any one person can play.

Dear Player, " Thank you for nicely correcting me when I get a rule wrong."
Dear Players, " Thanks for dumping out your dice bag or hitting the 4 for $1 dice tray; so the Skully Chain had dice for eyes."
Dear Players," Thank you for getting me interested in dm for cons."
Dear Player, "Thanks for the soda and snickers bar. I had the money."
Dear players, "Thanks for putting up with my joke props."
 

I am thankful for the players that bring the game to life, that keep me on my toes and bring new ideas to the game. That lift each other up and make the game better by being there.

I am grateful for players that light up my day when I get to sit down and play D&D with them.

And finally, on the rare occasions when I get to play, it's those DMs/GMs that are brave enough to say "I'm going to run a game at this con for a bunch of strangers within a strict timeframe and make sure everyone has fun!"

Dear Con Sponsors, "Thank you for letting me get in free for just DMing a few hours of gaming." PS thanks for the swag.

Dear Convention Players: Nothing makes me feel more special as a GM than the way you sign up for every slot of the games I run over the course of the weekend. It is an amazing, humbling gesture that drives me to make this year's con-campaign even better than last year's. You're why I keep doing this even when it makes my back hurt, my throat hoarse and my brain all kerfizzle.

Thank you to FLGS for making space and time available. (The heated building, lights, a table, and chairs are appreciated too.). Extra thank you for letting us bring in our own food / drinks even though you sell a selection of snacks and sodas.

Dear designers, thank you for putting out a great game knowing you'd have lots of people attack and insult you because they didn't get what they wanted.

That's all designers by the way, of every edition.

Thankful for all the choices. Thankful for the imagination and constant encouragement from RPG players. And most thankful for the games that helped me develop friendships that have lasted over 30 years.

Dear players: Thank you for accepting my apologies and moving on when I botch a session or a rule. GMs are human, too.

Dear players: Thank you for understanding that I am not an artist or a cartographer and the maps I make are ... not aesthetically pleasing.

And I'm going to add my thanks to those above to the gaming spaces that host my games. I wanted to game with people new to me, but I didn't want to invite strangers into my home. The games I run would not be happening without the gaming spaces.

Thankful for the GMs and players who make the choices and decisions of rpg sessions engaging.

It's the odd situations that count the most, for me.

Dear @Morrus, thank you for keeping this forum running and being a virtual pub for us nerds to gather, long after so many of the other pubs in the neighborhood have shut down. Every time I leave and come back, it’s like leaving town for a long stint, coming back and finding out that the pub that was there 30 years ago is still there, with familiar faces occasionally wandering in...

”I Love This Bar,” indeed.

Thank you old gaming friends for spending a moment away from work and family life to reach out to me from far away and to show me all the new things you are doing in the world of gaming. The old connections are renewed this way and I appreciate it. It feels good.

Dear siblings: thanks for giving my niche nerd-hobby a chance, especially since I know how difficult it was to find sitters for the kids so we could play. You're all murder hobos, but that campaign will always be a treasured memory.

Dear GM friends: thanks for taking the reins from me every once and a while so I could experience the joys of being a player.

Dear player friends: thanks for being there and creating great memories with me. Especially those of you that learned how to play your characters in and out, dug into the world, and worked with me to make the experience the best it could be for everyone at the table.

Dear Robert Schwalb: thanks for developing my favorite d20 fantasy game to date. I may not share your love of visceral body humor, but I've still bought almost every PDF you've put out for SotDL, and that says something.

Dear FLGS: thanks for providing me a consistent group and space to play with. You've provided me with many positive relationships, and more dice than I will ever need.

Dear @Sacrosanct: thanks for the prompt that caused me to reflect back on all those good memories, and the reminder to be thankful for the positive things.

Dear Mom, thanks for not getting on the "Your going to burn in Hell", train back in the 80s.
Agree 100%

●Dear Grandma, thanks for getting me that D&D Basic set for Christmas 1980.
●Dear Mom & Dad, thank you for being rationale adults & letting us kids play it. (And for defending us vs the old biddies at church over it. And then later on some of the neighborhood parents. Fights we learned about looong after the fact)
