I am now in the second week of the RPG-a-day project. This is a series of roleplaying questions to answer on social media. The host is the Brigade Con blog, where you can find the large image with the full list of questions.
What things are a part of your ideal session, other than the actual game?
I believe this questions refers to all the non-game things which create an ideal session. Here is my list:
- Friends – aside from simple needing a large enough turnout to run a game, I want to hang out with friends.
- Coffee – as we play in a coffee shop, a good coffee is an ideal part of the session, or at least the build-up.
- Laughter – I guess this arises from the game, but it is such an important component of the session that it is worth citing.
- Anecdotes – to share the experience of a great session, it really helps to have a good story to tell about something that happened during the game. This is not the story of the entire session, just a cool episode or character moment from the game. Retelling this anecdote allows me to revisit the ideal session.
