About me

I'm John Wick, famous for my work on Legend of the Five Rings, 7th Sea, Cat: A Little Game about Little Heroes, Orkworld, Houses of the Blooded, and a dozen more RPGs. My unorthodox GM techniques and tricks can be found in Play Dirty (volumes 1 and 2).

GM style

* Collaborative: My job is not to tell the players a story, but help them tell their characters' stories. * Safe: I want everyone to feel welcome at my table. * Fun: I have a fast, rapid style that doesn't allow minutiae to get in the way. * Challenging: I'm much more interested in what characters *will* or *will not* do rather than what they *can* do. I create situations with difficult moral choices to test the characters' mettle and resolve rather than whittling their hit points down to zero.
