Quote from: Joel P. Shempert on December 30, 2009, 02:05:22 PMYou know, it's funny (well, not funny ha-ha)...Even in this abortive little play-through, I was emotionally affected: through a weird twist of fate (none of it was my contribution, and I'm confident that it wasn't anybody's...passive-aggressive commentary on me or anything) we ended up with a master whose abusive aspects were uncannily close to my own darkest personality traits. In a sense all I had to do was play myself at my most emotionally violent. And thus it was supremely uncomfortable--but fittingly so--to play out scenes of emotional abuse. MLwM works its magic even in snapshot form!

Or you can avoid it and handwave past the scary parts and play a sanitized version of the game. I prefer going there, even when it makes me and the other players squirm in our seats.
