Testing... Testing... *tap tap tap*

For the next week I'm going to be testing out a new way of GMing. More or less, you might see your friendly neighborhood GM's popping into character and interacting with you ingame.

You might say "wtf are they doing?! Gm favoritism! omg!" or "am I going to be banned?" Well, no. You won't be banned, and no, we're not showing favoritism. Okay, you might be banned, but not because the GM is there.

All they're doing is providing someone to rp with, or making themselves available for rp, or packing useful information about the gods, the setting, and the history that's ripe for the taking!

However, remember that they're taking on the role of a character: so they don't have an obligation not to lie to you about the background, just like any old person you bump into.

It's important to remember, though: when a GM says "This is OOC" that means they're not here to play: sometimes GM's have to do GM work too.

Anyways, I'd like your feedback. If players react to this in a positive manner, we'll keep this up. If they don't like this, we'll go back to how things were. I hope to hear from all of you. =)

Are they clearly going to show they're GMs even if they're not OOC?

Well, you'll likely notice them by their names. =)

Thank the Gods. It sometimes gets boring when you're all alone.

yay, maybe someone can RP being a medic teacher person like Fianna so my poor old chaunsey can get his stitching classes without having to break "4 in the morning" rule for me:)

I had other things to attend to, and I was staying in-character. =) Also I questioned how much I should get involved since it sounded like you were talking about another GM's quest. I could just see my GM character getting caught up in a whirlwind and end up 'winning' the quest and how much that would make everyone angry =D

This sounds like a great idea.

Many an hour have I wasted trying to find people to rp with or waiting in the shop/tavern for people in futility. This would be a very nice solution.
