Works/ Quests DM'd by The Weaver:
Common tropes in Weaver's works include
Tropes that apply to The Weaver, himself
- Author Avatar: Two — /tg/ Weaver◊ and "Weavy the little brown girl◊"
- The Chessmaster
- Deadpan Snarker
- Large Ham: On occasions; especially prevalent during John Quest.
- Rage Breaking Point: At one, major point during Ruby after getting frustrated from /tg/'s lack of useful ideas.note
- And again in the next postnote
- The Reveal: When Weaver had confessed that he had indeed been the one to have written The Metal Glen poem, not William Murdoch as he had most everyone convinced.
- Spell My Name with a "The": Inverted. Most every time his name comes upnote , he is referred to as "The Weaver"; but he goes simply by "Weaver" during his Quest campaigns.
- Trolling Creator/ Trolling: A master at this on the occasions he decides/(pretends) to prank the players by branching the story off into one of his wild, erratic discontinuities; or otherwise, break into one from out of nowhere. In one instance, he even started a wild gag while using the title "NotWeaver" then switched back to his regular title in the same thread, feigning innocence/ obliviousness to the matter afterwards.
