Have others accused you of being a wargaming diva?

Im overweight and can't sing all that well. Heaven knows, I've tried.

Dear God no. Nothing should be that serious around a gaming table.

J'accuse! evil grin

Ditto! :)

PS. Then again, this isn't a wargaming table.

How does one become a "Wargaming Diva"? Because I so want to be famous and rich, while yet fashionably snotty to everyone.

It begins by wearing a fat opera lady outfit (complete with horned helmet) to a miniatures' gaming convention … and then act like you own the place. The rest is pretty much all downhill from there. Loud singing helps too. And some dancing.


PS. The ballerina outfit is also a winner, as long as you act spoiled and stand-off-ish. It's all about playing the part.

I hope you appreciate the trouble I went through to find those creepy pictures. :)

NO …

I host and run a lot of games.
Do I insist on good sportsmanship? Yes.
Do I insist on painted miniatures and terrain? Yes.
Do I insist on players stay reasonably focused on the game? Yes.
Do I insist players have a working knowledge of the rules?
Do I shut down ignorant talk and attitudes if/when they crop up? Yes.
Am I open to other games and game systems? Sure. But if you're at a game I'm running, this is what we're playing.

Does that make me a Diva? Maybe.

Dinosaur In Various Aspects?

Rawr, yes!

No – The language used for things I HAVE been accused of would set the bleep-o-matic on fire.

Diva ? No, I don't swim that well, so – oh, wait…

Beware the steaming divot.

Clorox Cranium-Purge, please. No, not a glass, the whole carbuoy. Wait, I'll remove my eyes to help the flow.
