 Post subject: Dialogue Timer
PostPosted: Tue May 19, 2009 3:14 am 
Ever watch one of those chess games, where two players have a limited amount of time to perform on their turn? Well, I think that implementing a similar idea for the GM's use would be handy. Essentially, the idea is that the GM can make a timer for himself and his players, in which he sets up an amount of time he needs to put together dialogue. In this time, players can't talk, which helps the GM expound the amount of speech he needs to get his point across about a situation or idea.

Granted, there are imperfections. Unfortunately, my players can move faster than I could, which means by the time I get details out, it is too late for players to make a battle more favorable or to get someone to agree with them. However, the players also have a timer, in that they each can set up how much time they will need to talk themselves. In this way, an "Speech Initative" could be established, so that others in the group would know when to give their friend time to speak.
