Summer schedule, no fourth Player & limited plot intervention
My summer schedule adequately juggled the competing demands of childcare and my writing. However, this week it started to show the strain. Thus, I only completed my minimal prep for next session this morning. The session outline is finished, and I listed the abilities for the challenges currently threatening the Heroes.
However, it appears the fourth Player will not be attending on Saturday. After the initial surge of interest, enthusiasm seems to be fading. Once again, we are back to three Players, with one about to depart for paternity leave. I can run the game with just two Players, but it is a precarious position. The search for fresh blood continues.
We have not cancelled the campaign just yet, so there is still hope. I head into the weekend excited to see what happens to the Heroes in the Red Maze. There is a plot twist I want to throw at the Players, but it all depends upon the actions they take. I am reluctant to steer the plot too much, which ensures I am surprised by the story too.
