does anyone know anything about writing scenarios and then having them come to be? im interested in my team starting writing and producing them... but have no clue how to do about that.
Hoooh boy. Yeah, I can help, although you should probably check with the Colorado players and get their opinions on my games first. I'm convinced that they're being extra-nice around me, becuause NONE of the games I've planned have gone off perfectly.
First rule is make it fun for both sides. I've mostly written North Korea vs USA -- so I try to give both sides something cool to play for, because nobody likes being a communist (holding off a Democrat joke here...)
Second rule is to be flexible. Like I said before, nothing ever goes exactly how you imagine it going, so be ready for ANYTHING. I usually keep a few spare missions handy in case I have to even out the score.
Third rule is to communicate very well with your game staff, both before and during the game. Keep your refs talking to your cash-takers, talking to your score-keeper, talking to everybody else. It's a jungle out there!
Fourth rule is to keep your head up; even if you think the game is going horribly awry, you may be very surprised at how people react. No, they don't hate you for wasting their money. THey had a good time, because in the end, it's all paintball.
I'm over-simplifying it.... you'll learn quick if you try it out. One tip that I can give you is to do a dry-run -- basically talk your way through the game with everybody involved, so everyone knows what should happen.
