Roleplaying Tips is a weekly email newsletter by Johnn Four that’s been going since 1999! Eight years is certainly nothing to sneeze at and well worth your time. He just published #383: part 1 of Jail Design. If you’re a newcomer to his site, the archives alone will give you weeks of ideas and fun! There’s something here for players and GMs alike.
Small Note: Chatty DM’s entry has been updated with his new link. Love the new look!
Since my real love is science fiction, the other wordpress theme didn’t seem to fit any more. I’m keeping the name though.
So, I might have players again! (Yes, I’m that truly weird mythological creature, the female GM) It’s been so long since I’ve been able to run a game that I’m having trouble knowing where to start. A few things have already made it to my to-do list: create custom character sheets (The basic ones provided are ok to start with but long-term? No.), decide pre-generated vs player-made characters, sort my volumes of paper from old games for things of possible use in this one…. Did you notice that come up with story and create a game aren’t in the list? That part always seems easy!
