Day 27: Sharing The World With A Co-GM Follow-Up

Day 27: Sharing The World With A Co-GM Follow-Up For the first time ever, I’m running a campaign in which I am a GM and also a player. Already it’s been pushing me to be a better GM, but it also has its pitfalls. All GMs have their foibles, their bad habits and weaknesses, but recognizing them is something else entirely. It’s pretty amazing how directly comparing the same campaign as run by another person can really put your own weaknesses in the limelight: “Man, his descriptions are so much more vivid, and the players are really immersed in what is happening.” Or, “that puzzle...

February RPG Blog Carnival: How and Where I Write and/or Game Prep Leicester’s Ramble is hosting February’s RPG Blog Carnival, and this month’s topic is “How and Where You Write and/or Game Prep.” Given my current projects–two RPG campaigns and one unfinished novel–I figured I had plenty to write about for this one. Where I Write/Prep Game My boyfriend and I thought it was worth the extra $100 plus a month to get a two bedroom apartment.

Frontloading Campaign Prep for my Sailor Moon RPG Campaign

Frontloading Campaign Prep for my Sailor Moon RPG Campaign For my upcoming Sailor Moon Roleplaying Game campaign, I’m trying something different than my usual campaign prep regimen. Instead of taking it one session at a time, I’m—gasp!—trying to get as much prepared as possible before I run out of time or inspiration. This has essentially boiled down to outlining the villains’ plot arc, such as their major objectives and modus operandi. It’s been easier than I would have guessed so far, but perhaps that’s the beauty of using an established setting and drawing heavily on existing mythologies for...

Moon Pride! A Sailor Moon RPG is Found!

Moon Pride! A Sailor Moon RPG is Found! You’ve probably heard of an anime by the name of Sailor Moon, but you might not know that a brand new series came out this summer celebrating the 20th anniversary of the show’s release. I was a little freaked out when I saw the manga-esque style, but it’s made me fall in love with the Sailor Senshi all over again and given me a hefty dose of nostalgia for one of my all-time-favorite-things-ever. Does it surprise anyone, then, that I was unable to resist purchasing The Complete Book of Yoma, Volume 1 when I found it at Half Price Books this weekend...
