Question for GMs: What do you start with? Before the game session even begins, I mean. Do you preface your con games with any particular words of wisdom, special rules, expectations, hopes, encouragement, warnings, introductions, anecdotes, jokes, questions or questionnaires?
Question for players: Is there anything that has stood out to you over the years (good, bad, or weird) that a GM has said or done before a con game actually started?
That's it. Please comment with your answers below. Thanks!
