Thank you in advance.

1. In terms of Setting, which of the following do you like in a game?
Historical - Primitive
Historical - Medieval
Historical - Renaissance
Historical - Industrial Age
Historical - 1900's (e.g. 20's, 30's, World Wars, etc.)
Other (See last question)
2. If you had to pick ONE of the following types of games to play or GM, which would you choose?
High Fantasy (like Lord of the Rings)
Futuristic Fantasy (like Star Wars)
Modern or Near-Modern Horror (like HP Lovecraft or Clive Barker)
Modern Fantasy (like Harry Potter)
Historical Recreation (like numerous Historical Fiction novels)
Futuristic Sci-Fi (like Blade Runner)
None of these appeal in the slightest
3. Choose the theme that appeals to you most for a game you would run or play:
Humor (slapstick, puns, wordplay, etc.)
4. Which of the following game play styles do you prefer?
Exclusively roleplaying, combat never or almost never occurs
Primarily roleplaying, only occasional combat
An even mixture of combat and roleplaying opportunities
Mostly combat, little roleplaying
5. You prefer to play a game where the Game Master:
creates an epic story for players to participate in, but cannot change
creates a story with a clear direction, but allows players to veer away from that story
creates a story along the way based on player choices
does not create an overarching story, but rather provides a series of unrelated game sessions
says, "So what do you want to do?" and runs the game on the fly
