Gary Gygax, of course. So I could finally confirm that for the past forty years, everybody else has been doing it wrong.

I googled a couple of those names, and I'm not.

Joseph Stalin.

The game would be highly focused because player discipline at the table would be absolute. Anyone who questioned the GM, took forever to look something up, or did anything distracting would immediately be shot.

I would prefer to be Alive as dungeonmaster; and I would like to play D&D 5e with those three guys from USA Top Gear.

According to Gygax if you were using anything later than 2nd Edition you were "doing it wrong".

Actually I am not in love with the famous people. I love gaming. Maybe Rich Tucholka of Tritac games. He's a friend of a friend and used to be at our CON every year in Michigan.

Unless you know one of them is a gamer, I wouldn't go for it.

Robert Jordan. His forward to the 3.5 edition of Wheel of Time indicated that he was a DM himself.

Vin Diesel is apparently.

Don't know about D&D, but I bet a steampunk game game mastered by Jules Verne could have been pretty darn awesome.

Although I guess the player handouts with very detailed descriptions of how the stuff worked could be a drag from time to time.

Liberty's Edge

First name that came to mind for me was Edgar Rice Burroughs. His fiction was probably what got me most interested in adventure literature and on to SciFi and Fantasy. His stuff is so dated and formulaic that I now have trouble reading his stuff, but the man could spin a yarn. And I'd like to think that if alive now he might have grown with the times.

Stephen King would be way up at the top if the list as well, primarily for skill in encouraging immersion.

Other than authors, I'd next go with a random figure from the pre-scientific world. I think the idea of playing in a game where our modern perspectives and the veil between the game and reality were basically tossed out the window is intriguing.


Mao Tse-tung, but it might be a long march.

The man made a number of points, and the new has not always been better. AD&D is where I started.

For GMs, mine would probably be Quentin Tarantino, Neil Gaiman, China Mieville, Joss Whedon, and Stephen King. Not necessarily in that order.

Players would be a different story, for that I would probably look more toward actors. Patrick Stewart and Jon Hamm immediately come to mind, though that list could go on and on.


Christopher Walken.

Nicola Tesla, dude would have the best props!


Gary Gygax, Tolkein, Lovecraft (though I think I would punch him in the face because of some of his racist beliefs, but oh well), H.G. Wells, James Jacobs, Dio, Dax Riggs, C.S. Lewis (I'd also just like to have lunch with the guy), any of the founding fathers (for the lolz), Gene Roddenbarry.

In no order.

Morgan Freeman, but only for the flavor text.

There aren't nearly enough hot chicks on y'all's lists.

In addition to my list from earlier (which included Audrey Hepburn as well as Ben Franklin),
Let me add this list:
.

Jessica Alba
Gabriella Wilde
Monica Raymund
1985- Brooke Shields
1975- Cybill Shepherd
1965- Ann Margaret

Looks like a perfect gaming table to me.
