Hey gang, I ran across a great idea while reading "THIS":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/comments.php?DiscussionID=2275&page=2#Item_27 thread. It is an idea and plot exchange for GMs of all types and stripes. There will be a specific campaign created, and interested parties can join (Just remember the first rule of PLOT CLUB, below). It is for GMs, not that we want to exclude players, but we don't want to spoil our games.
I did not come up with the idea, but the idea kinda fizzled (I think) and subsequent group originator has not been around for over a year.

bq). The curse of being a GM is that you don’t have anyone with which to gush about your game. The people who care most about what you’re creating need to be kept in the dark by necessity, to avoid ruining the plot, and everyone else doesn’t care about these obsessive details that I’m geeking out over (“Oh neat!”). Well, that’s fine, my ego can handle it, but my story line can’t be allowed to suffer.
bq). I’m looking for people who want to discuss the plots and stories of their campaigns in a group, using the group as a sounding board, and an “idea cloud”. I’m going to create a game, and invite any GM who wants to participate (and isn’t in a game already being discussed), and provide everyone with space to post the details of their game. Then we can post ideas, suggestions, and provide the feedback that is a vital (at least for me) part of the writing process.
bq). The first rule of Plot Club is you do not talk about Plot Club.
The second rule of Plot Club is you DO NOT talk about Plot Club.
If anyone is interested, chime in.
"killervp":http://forums.obsidianportal.com/account.php?u=60627 will host the campaign page. We can all participate, but it will only get off the ground if you all show some interest! Chime in, my fellow plotters!
