Have to agree with Vid here. I cannot tell you HOW many times I've sat there as a GM, idly listening, as may players discussed every last tiny detail of their plan. It's another reason my Crimson Throne and Serpent's Skull groups take SOOOOOO long to play; not only are they 6-player groups, but each group has at least one "impeccable planner" who wants everything in order, down to, "And then on round 6 this PC will cast this spell at this bad guy."

I've seen such planning take over two hours at the table.

And then I don't even throw in a monkey wrench. I just play the bad guys exactly as they would naturally react, and the moment they do something unexpected, like say, move, or cast a spell, the ultra-planners say, "Oh, crap! We weren't planning for that!" and all that planning goes out the window.

It's just depressing. You should have overall roles for your PCs, and an overall strategy. But the moment you're telling me in advance what your PC will be doing on the 3rd round of combat, I already know that you've hopelessly lost.

Yep, and it goes the same for the GM trying to plot what the NPCs will do. That's why the best GM advice I have heard is 'prep situations not plots'. If you know what is in the area and what the NPCs can do, you can react to the PCs insane actions dynamically, rather than look at the script and try to force things back onto rails.

When I was talking about planning I was talking more on recon, buffing up before throwing flash bangs into the room and maybe on how you wanna defend your town. Like plant growth involving blackberry bushes..etc. A home made moat, because we all want to do the home-alone thing. I certainly wouldn't be planning for more then that particular combat round...because plans never survive once in contact with the enemy.

I think the order of running a fight should be:

Before you kick down the door: Buff whatever
After you kick down the door: Drop the debuffs/walls to get as many baddies out of the fight as possible
After that uh...mop up the mess?

Which reminds me I haven't done wall work for a very, very long time.

But I will say I have asked players for botting instructions on what they want to do in a fight for PBP when they're unavailable to post. Wouldn't that count as asking people in advance on what they would want to do in the next round in combat? Hrmm...

Yeah, the best advice I ever got was very similar: "As a GM, you are there to provide the world. The players provide the story."

So you put in the bad guys, the plot hooks, the encounters, the NPCs, and so forth, and then let the PCs do what they will.

Shiro (a great GM) told me that for our fantastic Runequest campaign, his entire prep work for each week would be two encounters. Otherwise he knew the world well enough that he'd just let us do whatever, the world and NPCs would react accordingly, and when it seemed appropriate he'd hit us with an encounter.

So we really did build our own story. It was pretty cool...

Full Disclosure: It turns out my kids *did* forget my birthday. The "banana and penny" were for Father's Day, matching last year's Father's Day present, and apparently the rest of the bananas are now rotting in the studio. NobodysWife will be... displeased.

But ALL I ever want for my birthday is, for one day of the year, to NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING FOR ANYONE ELSE.

No cleaning. No GM'ing. No taking care of the house. No entertaining guests. Just a day where I can relax and not have to do anything.
Once...
a...
year...

And you know where I'm going with this, because it was a Wednesday:
Mr. Stereotype's Dad: Aren't you running for us tonight? I thought you said you would!
Bacon Boy: Since you're not running, we're all going to come to your house anyway and play Quiplash.

No, no, no, no, NO!

I said, "No," many times yesterday.

Signs that you're on a good team at work:

Our servers got delayed until at least next week. Our PMs haven't gotten back to us to review any of our stuff. We are, quite literally, out of stuff to do. My manager gave up and is taking tomorrow off. I managed to cobble together a list for today, but I've got nothing for tomorrow.

My manager suggested I check with the rest of my team. Their responses were pretty much, "We're doing our best to find stuff, too! Let us know whether you find anything!"

So:
- Working from home
- No work to do
- Every single member of the department is still trying to find work to do instead of just giving up and binge watching Angel Beats

It's a good sign when your whole team actually has a work ethic. A lot of teams around here don't.

Ah well. That's a different story then. I'd just go sorry chum. We be sold out. But no need to get nasty about it.

There are lots of people who can't find their way to the cable car tower(it's at the back of my office building and there are signs pointing the way) and if I have time I actually escort them there.

Let me tell you about a job I had I worked at a concession stand at an amusement park. We were one of the first places you see when entering the park. As a result of this we had lines from the beginning of the day till the end. Endless flood of people throughout the entire day. I occasionally had to be on register. I hated register. but thats a different story sort of. Now on the walls were these large plastic dispensers that has NAPKINS written down them in LARGE bight print. Hanging from the dispenser was a napkin in plain view. One of these dispensers (they were everywhere) happened to be located just slightly to the right of me where I stood and took money. Right at eye level might I add. Still every other person that came through asked me Where are your napkins? This didn't bother me at first I would just lightly reach my hand out and touch the dispenser. however after doing this job for 3 months with untold thousands of people asking me the same thing day in and day out and begging the manager to stop putting me on register I quit before I strangled someone. (there was other reasons too but that contributed.)
And people claim God is being unfair when disaster strikes...
Hey now I put that in some context just below and to be fair I was in my teens years and everything in my teen years was a world ending disaster. Also I had a 15 year old manager and we charged about 5 dollars per slice of pizza that people waiting in line for 2 hours to get. I got cussed out A LOT. I thought one person was gonna jump me. (seriously the prices are on the board what did you expect for 2 whole pizzas and 8...

Right. Now think about what God has to deal with every moment of every day...

“Hey, God, make me rich.”
“Hey, God, make me pretty.”
“Hey, God, where did I leave my glasses?”
“Hey, God, murder that dude who makes me so angry!”
“**** you, God, you didn’t get me a pony!”
“No one should believe in God, because He doesn’t instantly cater to our every whim, and/or provide napkins!”

All I’m saying, if you work in a Help and/or Customer Service department, i.e. you work with the public in any sort of a capacity, the idea of causing disasters doesn’t seem so far fetched. Heck, look at SimCity!

I do hope that it’s clear that there is more than some amount of facetiousness in all of this.

Yeah. I know the feeling. Quite well.

Manager: Hey, I just had a bunch of thin clients sent to you for the work-at-home replacements.

Me: Thanks. Tech1 will be happy.

Tech1 gets a call today stating she can't get the wireless going. After I realize he's been on the phone for half an hour I ask "Are you sure these thin clients even have wireless?" He just looks at me with a death glare.

Nope. This batch doesn't have built-in wireless.

Mention it in our meeting and Manager goes "Well, why are they trying to use it with wireless in the first place?"

Tech2: Because it's 2018?

You'd be surprised. My wireless password is just a simple sentence, along the lines of, "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."

The conversations I have about it convince me that it's the most secure password EVER.

"Do you use spaces?"
"Do you use spaces when you write, or do you enjoy unintelligibility?"

"Do you capitalize the first word?"
"Did you flunk kindergarten?"

"Is there punctuation at the end?"
"Did you flunk first grade as well?"

It was funny, because Whingey Wizzard was having issues connecting, and I started tirading about how much trouble people had with such a simple password, but HIS questions happened to be legitimate instead of simple, "If it's a password I can't use proper grammar in it," issues. (There's a compound word in there, so first he asked whether it was one word or two (legitimate), and then we had quite the debate as to whether making up a new compound word forced it to be a proper noun (capitalized) or not (non-capitalized).)

But, since it is a password, proper grammar is not required.

Those were all legitimate questions, as it was a password, and therefore not expected to follow the rules of English grammar.
Now, if you told them the password, and immediately told them it follows all proper English rules, unlike most passwords, these would be silly questions.

"Well, they shouldn't be using their home wireless."

They've been allowed to use it for over 5 years. They work at home. They expect that these devices will work wirelessly.

"Well, tell them they don't."

That's not going to fly with their management.

"It's a security issue!"

No, it's really not. I understand that every wireless security protocol has been made irrelevant but if the router has been compromised, it doesn't make a bit of difference how they're connecting. Either they're compromised already or they aren't.

Ummm... you DO know that one of his things is to ask a tolerably intelligent question to cover for the fact that he does not, in fact, know what he is doing.

Example:
"Honey, could you make me a Manhattan?"
"Remind me again how you like it?"

It's a pretty basic recipe with three ingredients. I have never, in ten years, had an actual bartender ask me that question. It's a Manhattan, and when they mix it, it tastes like a Manhattan.
