Tips and Requests - Mentorship

Now that we've got a lot more people churning through the mentorship I wanted to find out from the A/SH point of view: What works, what doesn't? What sort of help are you guys feeling the need for from the Storyhosts as you go through your first three sessions?

My Two Cents

Well, I can say that so far, Maddy's been great for mentoring! :D He's the only one that I've had so far due to our constraints that we've had. :\

Though with that being said, and me being the most unmathematical person ever... Is there anyway that perhaps we could do something else for learning the ruling part of things? A video perhaps? I know that we're already making a whole lot of other videos currently, but sitting down and reading all of that on the ruling part of it... I have a very hard time with. Having both, I feel will make life easier.

@T anything maddy does that's

@T anything maddy does that's particularly good you'd want to make sure the rest of us do as well?

For the learning stuff - are you more audio? or audio and visual?

Yes on the video - eventually ^^;

I think a video tutorial on at least basic ruling would definitely be helpful to new ASHs. I doubt we could cover the whole system, but we should be able to hit about 80-90% of the stuff you need to know on a regular basis (setting diffs, handling combat and magic, etc).

The 'eventually' is because it'll probably take me a bit, although if anyone's up for partnering on it, I'm all for it.

More two cents

He's awesome at simplifying things for me at least. Not sure how that works for other people though. Heh. He also gets what I'm asking even if I can't seem to find the right words to explain what I'm asking. So... Not sure if that's just Maddy or if you guys can do that too. Though I've always said that Maddy makes an excellent teacher.

My learning style tends to be both. If I can't get it from reading than either talking about it or having a video to watch is will usually do the trick. Same thing in reverse too. Heh and if neither work... Then I probably won't get it. :P
