inspiration: Gaming related

from the LiveJournal, which is usually only personal notes:

Am asked:
1. What's the best thing about GMing?
2. What's the best thing about being an Amber gamer?
3. Where does your inspiration come from?

1. The best thing is the psychic trust bond between Players and GM. When it clicks, you go places as a group, finding that the journey is much more fun than the destination.

2. The best thing about Amber gaming is that you can go anywhere you can think of and some places you can't. There is also the idea that Amber itself never dies as long as there is one reader or gamer adding to the concept. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

3. My inspiration comes from people. Some of them have familiar names, like Zelazny, Bradbury, Homer, Kane, O'Neil, Gaiman, Rathbone, Kaye, Hepburn, Grant, Sturges, Wilder, and some of them are people I've met.
