Here is a letter I sent my players. Do you guys have similar stories. Somethimes I just felft like I was being used...
I have been doing some thinking as of lately and have come to the conclusion that the games I run will come to a halt...least temporarily. For I have been running rpgs for the last 6 years now. In this time I have spent tons of money on books and supplies along with countless hours preparing for the games. Do not get me wrong; I did enjoy myself and sure you did likewise. I have DM games for numerous players for the last six years and as of yet have not played but 2-3 games as a player. Players have never once bought any of the rule books nor show any interest in ever running a game...permanent players.
For things to change I will require each player to buy a set of core rules, for their chosen game(s), and having read them offer their time up and run a game. To have one person buying all the materials and running every game is sort of selfish or at least not caring.
I understand that money can be tight but if you have room for pizzas, magic cards, movies, other entertainment... than there is no excuse for not buying the rules for the games you wish to play. Lazy?
I hope I did not upset anyone nor cause ill feelings but somethings need to change before any more games are to be played. Hopefully we can work things out Look at the links below which contain games and their prices. For the price of a couple pizzas you can start supporting the games you like to play.
