The Forgotten Scrolls series is a weekly look at articles previously published during my three-and-a-half years of blogging. Before the usual dig through the archives, I direct you to my regular guest post at Ennead Games. Here I reprint an old essay.

Three Years ago: Week 28
Finally, we reach early 2015, where I reviewed the Becoming RPG. The feature article for week 28 was the second part of my series on montages, this time dealing with the HeroQuest rules. This is the same article I recently updated for Chris at Ennead Games:
Once again, I hope you liked this journey through the archives of Tales of a GM. Did you find any lost treasures this week?
