Hi everyone! I'm new, although you already met my fiance, the_archmage. I've been roleplaying for years now, although I've only recently begun to gm one shots and mini series. I began with Star Wars, but quickly took an affinity to White Wolf's Werewolf the Apocolypse. Recently my game of choice has been Exalted, again from White Wolf. I've played a few D&D games but really have only had one that absolutly thrilled me (but maybe that had something to do with the fact that my fiance was running it...) so it's not a favorite of mine.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling now and let you get to reading more interesting posts.
If you are or have ever been a GM, what do you consider the best one-shot/campaign you've ever ran? Why would you say that it was the best? Have you ever tried to replicate it?
I'd have to say that my best one-shot would be a game of DC Heroes that I ran sever years ago. The premise was simple: Pick a villain from the Marvel Universe to play in the DC Universe. I was pretty impressed with many of the choices since many of the players were old comic book fans like myself, and they didn't try to pick the most uber-powerful villains that they could think of.
Some of the choices were: Doctor Doom, Red Skull, Mr Sinister, Gideon, and The Absorbing Man.
They caused all kinds of hell in that game. And I loved the creativity the players displayed. I've always been fairly free-form when I run supers games, and they ran with it.
It was a blast.
