Game Checker: Rolan A Doobie (GM's Please Read)

Postby sjg11 » 08 Nov 2014, 16:17

Rolan A Doobie has kindly agreed to take on the role of Game Checker (if anyone has a better name please post below or PM me). Rolan is an experienced GM who is on hand to help people with the design of their games in order to ensure a higher quality of more balanced games as well as to show new GMs how to balance a game of Mafia. This is a step which I feel will benefit both players and GMs and I would definitely encourage new GMs to PM him their game design. I would even encourage experienced GMs to send him their game designs as having another set of eyes looking over a game is never a bad idea.

For those of you who don't know Rolan is one of the site's top GMs and I have never played in a game run by Rolan which wasn't both well balanced and enjoyable. So he seemed a natural fit for the position. To be honest the only other person I would have considered for the role would have been Crunkus and since he's taking a backseat role and Rolan volunteered, that decision was made a lot easier than it could have been.

To those of you who have sent me games to look over since I was last here.....sorry.

I wasn't ignoring you. Just a significant life change led to massively reduced free time and this forum/website was one of the many things that hit the chopping block. Hopefully my lack of response didn't sour you on the idea of playing/creating these games, and that you got/get the feedback you were/are looking for. I'm just not the guy for the job anymore.

Maybe at some point down the road I'll wander back this way with more time on my hands. I still have a my folder full of ideas/themes in various stages of development, it's just been collecting digital dust for the past year and a half, or however long it's been.

Anyway, happy hunting.

Deleted the post, he was clearly a spammer.
