We’ve got six links this week because two of them are closely related. Enjoy!
I’ve always been more of a medium-to-long-term campaign kind of guy. I’m just not very good at building out a one-shot adventure. The Bonemaster over at RPG Blog II has a great post on how to prepare for this, get the players setup and run a great one-shot!
Normally, I don’t link to list style posts, but there are some great ideas in this post. I may even use a few of them.
These two links are related, so I’m putting them together. It’s great to keep in mind that your world is not static while the players are away.
