- Brainstorming framework
- Savage Worlds sheets
I succeeded in finding enough time on Wednesday to create the framework for the brainstorming session. There are three main areas for discussion, essentially the who, where and why of the forthcoming story arc.
I used yellow cards for the topic headers, then pink cards for my initial requirements for each of these areas. Some of these requirements are fixed, while others are suggestions or a list of options. There is a longer blog article in this topic. I have added this topic to my growing list of potential essays.
Amazingly, I even invested a little time in preparing for the Christmas Special. I tracked down copies of the Savage Worlds character sheets, and some GM rules sheets. I hope to have these printed over the weekend. The GM sheets will be especially helpful, as they should save me the effort of making my own cheat sheets for the rules. I expect I will still need a Player Handout, but I am saving time overall.
This really only leaves the scanning to work through. Maybe I will find the time for this on Friday night. Although, I should also review my guidelines for the brainstorming session, just to have them fresh in my mind. Hopefully the Players will have enough ideas to fuel the process, and we can agree on a framework for the next story arc.
