Welcome back mith, I think just as I joined you left so I never really got to jibber-jabber with you. I look forward to seeing you on our George fan club page a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

You might be pleased to know that you held No. 10 on the Top Posters page up until a few months ago, pretty solid achievement. 

 

Welcome to all new users, I hope to see you all around the forum.

Hello, all. I'm Josh. This is my second post on here. I've been a massive Beatle fan for about 3 or 4 years now.

some of the things i like to do outside of enjoying the Beatles are: reading, playing computer games, playing tabletop role-playing games. If you want to know what tabletop RPGs are, I've put a paragraph under a spoiler tag.

tabletop RPGs are like like group storytelling but with dice. Each player has a character they are acting as, but one player (referred to as the GM) controls the world around the characters and how it reacts to those characters. If one player wants to do something of particular challenge (such as convincing someone of something, a long jump, handling an animal) they will have to roll a di to determine success or failure. The most popular genre of these games are fantasy oriented, but there are some sci-fi games and games of any genre as well.


the rest I will keep as quick as I can.
My favourite Beatle album is: a triple toss up between Revolver , the White Album and Abbey Road . Maybe one day i'll make a playlist picking out the best tracks of the three as if they were one album
My favourite Beatle is: Paul, though George is currently growing on me.
My favourite Paul song before the breakup is: I Will
My favourite John song before the breakup is:Tomorrow Never Knows
My favourite ringo song before the breakup is: Octopus Garden (or yellow submarine, ask me tomorrow and my mind may have changed again)
My favourite George song before the breakup is: Something
I'm currently listening to: George's All Things Must Pass album. As I type, it's playing. I've just started getting into all the stuff after the breakup and this album is really really good
Other artists/bands I'm currently into: AC/DC, The Mountain goats, Weird Al, Metallica

It's good to meet you all, I'll see you around.

The GM, or DM, or Referee. GM stands for game master and is a more generic term for DM. DM stands for dungeon master which is normally the term used in the tabletop RPG dungeons and dragons.

Welcome @joshthenesnerd, curious as to whether you've included Paul's appearances on charity singles (Smokin' Mojo Filters, Ferry Aid, etc.) in your list?

this is a long post

as a player i have 4 points that will help a lot:

-don't be afraid to speak in character when you want your character to say something.

-what the GM/DM says goes, even if it goes against a rule in the book. you can say that is against a rule, but if the GM/DM still wants to go that way drop it for now. if you're still not happy with one of the GM/DMs rulings, discuss it with them after the session.

-when rolling to hit, roll the di at the same time as your damage dice it will save a lot more time than you think.

-and have your character sheet there, but also have your features, abilities and spells written on cue cards at the same time it will make it easier to remember what you can do

 

if you're running the game as  GM i have two tips:
-say yes to whatever they do and react accordingly, but at the same time know when to say no.

-the rules are the rules, but in the moment if it is better to ignore a rule then ignore it.

and i have two tips for being a player or DM/GM:
-communicate, dammit. if you've got a problem with the way another player or the DM/GM did something, talk to them about it after and try to come to an understanding. 

-and finally, if you're still having problems in the group that aren't going away and can't be dealt with, don't be afraid to walk away if it is possible. it's hard to do, but it's something we all gotta learn. try to keep the friends you've gained too if that happens.

 

anyways, we need to stay-on-topic back to the normally scheduled thread

Hello everyone, I am the new kid on the block. I am 30 yrs old and currently teach pre-K. I just colmpleted my Ed.D. So hoping to be a college professor, someday. My fav beatle is Ringo. I first got interested in the Beatles because my mom was a teen when Beetlemania hit the U.S. Her favorite Beetle was/is Paul. I started liking the Beetles music because my mom played it a lot along with the Eagles and Linda Ronstat. My favorite Beetles song is Yesterday . My friend Angie is also a Beetles fan, especially Paul. I live in TX with my hubby Mark and our 7 doggies.

Welcome to all! I reiterate what MMM said - 7?! a-hard-days-night-john-3

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.
