Story Time to rise again
Some of you may remember Story Time that I used to run way back when I used Skype (some of which have been preserved on this DA site).  I would tell RP stories that people got to interact with in some way.  It was fun but I got serious burn out from it so I had to drop it.  I've been fancying doing it once again only this time having it on the Play Time discord server where I could keep it much more organized and thus not burn out like before. There's only one problem...I'm not entirely sure what kind of stories to tell.  That's where you all come in.  If this interests you, please tell me what your favorite kinds of TF's are so I have some

The Villainy Awards!
It's been too long since I did a fun journal entry so let's fix that.  This is an old poll I used to do on forums a LONG time ago so let's bring it back.  I love good villains and who doesn't it?  So how about they get some recognition for their achivements?  Give your nominations for all the best villain categories as given below.  Villains from any medium are acceptable including TV, comics, movies, video games, books, you name it. Dressed for Disaster Favorite villain based on looks and outfit? Legions of Terror Who are your favorite villain footsoldiers?  (ie: fodder type soldiers like stormtroopers and the like) So hard to find good
DM tips: The wallflower
DM's often have lists of problem players but one who I never see talked about is something I call the wallflower.  This is the player who seems to be plagued by stage fright that they just can't seem to get over.  They always just go along with the group quietly.  They always wait to be prompted to do things, never taking initiative.  And oh gods, if they are EVER in a position where they have to make a decision, they will delegate that decision to someone, ANYONE else, immediately. I do sympathize with them as someone who was incredibly timid all through school.  You want to be more involved but you're terrified you're going to do something
When logic won't work, the happiness argument.
Let me start with a hypothetical question.  You know those "would you push the button" questions?  If you don't, it's a site with a series of hypothetical questions basically asking "If you push this button, you get this benefit, but it comes at this cost, would you push it?" I ask you this one. "You will have great wealth and never have to work another day in your life." BUT "You will suffer from incurable clinical depression.  Ie: An inability to feel joy or happiness" Would you push the button? Now, I'm hoping most of you have the good sense to answer no.  After all, what's the point of wealth if you can't actually enjoy it right? W
