    What VTT Do You Use?

    OCR with snapshots? Wiz! No, I never knew that was possible.

    What VTT Do You Use?

    Wow. Great function. Thanks for explaining. I‘m not using Obsidian but Onenote, but import/export would be great as I am usually very strong in world building, lore and other settings stuff and summaries.

    How to heal in the dungeon?

    If I want to provide such options for the adventurers, I will e.g. place their dead predecessors, i.e. a previous adventuring party or similar in the dungeon. But I would probably not just put them in any hallway for the PCs to loot. They need to work for it. I imagine e.g. a big pit trap with...

    @Smoki248 : Happy Birthday, Tamra! I hope you had a nice year. How did it work out with the campaign you intended? You know, the one with your own PCs as legendary NPCs?

    LFG Looking For Game Links and Resources

    Just to make sure: nexus3 is a site where GMs can meet players, right? It sure looks like a cardboard game.

    RPT Newsletter #1,207 | How to Motivate Your Players - Part II

    As I usually begin a session with asking the players a bit about their character's background, thought, dream, believes, etc., yesterday I asked them the following question: "I know most of you don't think yourself as adventurers (and maybe never will), but for the sake of putting a name tag to...

    Future King Campaign and other

    Big question for me is, whether you intend to play sword & sorcery wandering adventure party style or kingdom builder style or some other form of game play style. It sounds as if you put much focus on the kingdom stats.

    Future King Campaign and other

    According to your previous posts, I believed you had always been a player and now try to become a GM. Now you say that you had always been GM and now begin as a player. Which of those is actually true? And of which kind of people and characters does your group now consist? Up until the...

    RPT Newsletter #1,208 | How To Welcome The New Player

    Actually, when I walk into a new game store it usually feels like a wash of "I belong here". I can quickly see who is interested in what kind of game, get easily a chat going, and I am always intrigued by The New Approach of some of the GMs. But I totally sign your petition. I love this...

    Just Do Stuff From RPT GM Terry Street, DM since 1980 I love new players and I actively attempt to recruit as many as possible. To me it’s daunting the amount of stuff that you can throw at a new player, so I talk to them early on and I tell them several of the things you’ve listed. Then I...

    One Sentence Character Motivator From Gold Wizard of Adventure Will S Hi Johnn, great article as always! Something in this reminded me of the "one-sentence motivator" which I have found to be a pretty useful shortcut to creating interesting characters by putting some emotional weight behind...

    Cool Map From RPT GM Maja Hey Johnn, Talking about distances on RPG maps, I'd like to tell you about the Aventurien map from the game "The Dark Eye." Have a look at this: https://www.avespfade.de It works like Google Maps. Our group had a great time using this. There is even a version for the...

    Future King Campaign and other

    Thank you for your question. "Why would he take the risk?" I think (like always) it depends. Does he need to step away from his position for a while? (a wife died and he cannot work, a child is ill and he is preoccupied, a cousin marries in a different country and he travels there, ...) Or...
