Forgotten Scrolls 30: Week 193


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 the lessons I learnt when real life derailed my game prep schedule:


Lost Time: juggling a GM’s schedule




Last Week: Week 192

Another weekly series of relevance is where I post an Updated article to the blog. This previously appeared at Ennead Games, but now returns home. Last week’s Updated article explored how I use Pinterest as a way to collect useful images for roleplaying:


Updated: A Pinterest GM


Last Month: Week 189

Four weeks ago, I reviewed not one, but two different books in the same week. Week 189 continued my run of Blog Carnival articles, with my contribution to the March Carnival discussing things in the dark. I wrote about the River Ogre, which was also referenced in the latest session of my Shadows of Ulubrae story arc:


March ‘17 Carnival: The River Ogre



Six Months Ago: Week 167

Further back, in October 2016, I was busy preparing to launch my Heroic Nicknames pdf. The long blog post for week 167 was my first preview for this long pdf. The preview consisted of an extract from the Introduction to the book:




Last Year: Week 141

Stepping back to April, I noted my achievements on the blog. My long article for week 141 was a list of websites I recommend for storytelling GMs. I will post an updated version of this list very soon:


30 Top Sites for Storytelling GMs



Two Years ago: Week 89

Winding back another year to 2015, I promoted the Kickstarter for Epyllion, a game about playing dragons. My long blog post for week 89 was another in my series looking at Trollbabe by Ron Edwards. This was the eleventh essay, which explored the impact of relationships within the game:


Trollbabe and Relationships, Part 2: Keeping your Friends Close



Three Years ago: Week 37

Finally, we reach 2014, where I highlighted the voting for another round of the Warlock’s Journal. The feature article for week 37 was a sequel to the previous week. My coverage of chases in HeroQuest now explored methods for running the action:


Pursuit Sequences in HeroQuest 2, Part 2, Running the Chase



Once again, I hope you liked this journey through the archives of Tales of a GM. Did you find any lost treasures this week?



Happy Reading
