The Dungeon Master Experience
Lego My Ego

By Chris Perkins

Everyone has an ego, and behind the DM's screen, one's ego can manifest in many different ways. It's not a monster to be slain, but more like a beast to be tamed.

Talk about this column here.

This was my favorite DM Experience column yet.  It resonates so closely with my own thoughts on the subject that I almost could have written it myself (were I as good of a writer).

The way I see it, if you ever find youself saying something like, "It is my world", then you might have let your ego get the best of you.
I used to be pretty bad in the Grugnur department.  It was my world, dangit!  I've gotten better about that sort of thing, but I went too far in the other direction, too, being a little too unprepared most of the time.  Now I find myself trying to catch that fleeting balance between the extremes.

Call me silly. I was expecting something about legos as game props. With the LotR minifigs, they start to be almost practical (if a little over-sized).
