- Building Story Momentum
- Reduced Prep Burden
- Planning a Five Room Dungeon
The session on Saturday was a lot of fun, and may have marked a tipping point. Enough plot elements have been added to the story for it to gain a momentum of its own. Add to this the way the Heroes are building mini-plots of their own. I have a good feeling about the Shadows of Ulubrae story arc, as it approaches the point where sessions almost write themselves. There are a couple of new threads I want to weave into the story, but otherwise it is building itself.
I love that feeling, not least because it makes my game prep so much easier. My plan for tomorrow focuses on building upon what happened last session. I can ready the next step for a few threads, and then enjoy where the Players take these new inputs. The actual play report last Saturday is written and I have already begun the session outline. This should make for an easy prep burden tomorrow.
Therefore, I would also like to progress with the prep for the next scenario for the Basic D&D campaign I play with the boys. Here is another actual play report to write, and then I must create another Five Room Dungeon for them. At the moment, this is about the limit of their focus. Yet, I am out of practice for writing dungeons, so the process is not as quick as I would like. I will probably begin with the floorplans, and build from there.
Of course, I also have plenty of scanning to complete. This may have to wait until later in the week, assuming I can be productive tomorrow.
The Prep in Progress series are short summaries of my prep for the ongoing Tales of the Hero Wars campaign.
