Re: Running a Halloween themed adventure soon.

Ha! I like the thought of an angry mob storming the Inn/Mansion/etc. with pitchforks and torches.

Running a Halloween themed adventure soon.

My group can only meet every other weekend so this upcoming weekend is my chance to do something a little more grotesque and 'scary' for the Halloween holiday. Strangely enough, my local gaming shop has had the Tainted Lands box set on their shelf for at least a year (they didn't even carry the play...

Re: Tips for drawing in PCs?

I have considered that. The other member that has run games in the past had a Ranger that would pop up from time to time whenever the play group was out 1 or 2 members. Definitely comes in handy-especially if members start dropping unconscious. :P

Re: Tips for drawing in PCs?

Good ideas, maybe this younger member just wants an opportunity to play 'hero' for the team. The next time we meet, I might pick his brain a little and determine what about the game he really enjoys. If he's all into just swinging that battle axe, then I should provide a scenario where he can really...

Re: Tips for drawing in PCs?

Thanks for the great suggestions NJPDX! The notecard idea is a good one and I might ask that the pc's provide some rudimentary details at the beginning of the next session so that I can mold the session into something that is less rigid and more likely to run closer to their own interests in the gam...

Re: Tips for drawing in PCs?

Thanks for the suggestions. As a new CK, I haven't quite grasped that I really need to be less passive in some regards and fully engage the pc's in new and creative ways, but these responses have given me some ideas. Thanks!

Tips for drawing in PCs?

I'm a very new CK (1 session so far) and find it a lot of fun. Like most new CK's (DM, etc.), there are questions that pop up that I'm sure the more seasoned veterans can offer guidance on. Here's one: My group tends to run small - myself, the ex-CK (a busy schedule so he had to step down), and abou...

Re: St. Louis Players of C&C

I'm in Columbia and there's a small group that meets up and plays C&C roughly every other Sunday. There's usually space open so if any of you folks are in the area, you're more than welcome to join us! We have events hosted on Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/The-Mid-Missouri-Role-Players-Group/). Our ...

Re: What boardgame(s) are you playing?

Mage Wars - Awesome and somewhat similar to Magic: The Gathering or Summoner Wars. I think it beats M:TG (haven't played Summoner Wars) hands down.
Settlers of Catan
Last Night on Earth

It's hard to get interest into any sort of analog gaming these days however. :cry:
