Shadows of Ulubrae, Chapter 15, Part 2


  • Faction index cards
  • Busy week
  • Lack of Dungeon World prep


This first week of the term has been a busy one. The combination of school events and household chores have filled my time. I am working through my backlog of tasks, but only with effort. Thus, my game prep has taken a hit. On Wednesday, I finished the actual play report and made a start on the index cards listing the city factions for the DramaSystem game on Saturday. Sadly, this was the limit to my prep.


I was hoping to complete the Session Outline Sheet tonight, but it is already late as I write this. The outline will not need to be quite so comprehensive for a DramaSystem interlude, but it is good to use as a record of the session. Thus, it will take less time than usual to compile, but I still need one.


Obviously, I also need to finish those index cards listing the factions. I hope to find time for that tomorrow, if my trip to Norwich passes smoothly. Otherwise, it will need to be squeezed into tomorrow night, along with the usual pre-game printing. So often my prep takes less time than I expect, yet I stress about it regardless, I hope this will be one of those weeks.


I had also hoped to make progress with the Dungeon World prep. This has not happened at all. I may need to set aside more time next week to prepare for running a new set of rules. I am expecting DW to run for more than one session, so I will have the chance to correct any errors or omissions from the first session. Regardless, it could be another busy week looming.


Happy Gaming
