The Forgotten Scrolls series is a weekly look at articles previously published during my three-and-a-half years of blogging. Before the usual rummage through the dusty archives, I direct you to my regular guest post at Ennead Games. Here I reprint an old essay.
This article has been given a fresh edit, a little more polish, and reprinted as a guest post on the Ennead blog. This weekend, the article presented an overview of my methods for building Player engagement with my campaign:

Three Years ago: Week 33
Finally, we reach 2014, where I reviewed the Kickstarter for Posthuman Pathways by Jason Pitre. The feature article for week 33 was a thought-piece about juggling time as a GM:
