Laziness

We’re Not Lazy!

We’ve been busy- just not putting out shows.  Going to cons (see our “appearance schedule”!)

Time Saving Techniques

  • Make an outline or to-do list for your game
  • Cut out distractions
    • 10-2 Method- 10 minutes of straight work, then 2 minutes for scheduled goof-off time
  • Eat first.  Schedule Pee.
  • Schedule your big rocks first
  • Plan with a focus group, not everyone
  • Don’t reinvent the wheel
  • Perfect is the enemy of done
  • Doing things right or Doing the right things?
  • Replace the word “time” with “money” when talking about management
    • Replace with Lubricant- too much and too little are both uncomfortable
  • Don’t delegate- empower
  • Steal with both hands

Worth the Time

  • Learning a new system
  • Know your character

Not worth the time

  • Reading the entire book
  • Detailed Maps!
  • Don’t learn every rule- at first
  • Crafting tons of NPC’s

This episode is “Not Safe For Work.” Of course none of these episodes are safe for work. If this is your first time listening, congratulations. Anyway, use headphones or at least look around a bit to see if your co workers can hear.

We explain what this podcast is about. We also offer our two major warnings:

  • We use naughty words and describe adult situations
  • This podcast uses “humor”
  • This is not a regular episode. However is a good place to start listening. Listen to this episode first and then one of our regular episodes.
