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 a follow-up from the previous guest post. The latest essay presented a detailed breakdown of my current prep routine. This is a lot less work than when I originally posted the article:
Last Week: Week 193
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 the presentation of montages in Fate, and how they can be used in roleplaying games:
Last Month: Week 190
Four weeks ago, I promoted the current home for the bi-monthly Warlock’s Journal. Week 190 continued my run of Blog Carnival articles, with a return to my series inspired by the February Carnival. In part four I wrote about the Who of an encounter, by focusing on those aspect of a GMC which help the GM’s portrayal of the character:
Six Months Ago: Week 168
Further back, in October 2016, I launched my Heroic Nicknames pdf, the longest book I have created so far. The long blog post for week 168 was another Blog Carnival contribution, this time an overview of flower potions from the Kingdom of Eternal Summer.
Last Year: Week 142
Stepping back to April, I posted a review of Elric of Melnibone, a classic fantasy book from my youth. My long article for week 142 was a third Blog Carnival essay, being an overview of the weather found on the Plane of Air in my campaign:
Two Years ago: Week 90
Winding back another year to 2015, I announced the winners to my Cosmic Crisis round of the Warlock’s Journal. My long blog post for week 90 was yet another Blog Carnival essay. This time I explored why I prefer the narrative combat options presented in HeroQuest:
Three Years ago: Week 38
Finally, we reach 2014, where I announced the winners of my Bricks & Mortar round of the Warlock’s Journal. The feature article for week 38 gives us a clean sweep of Blog Carnival contributions. I really do like the variety of topics this project offers. This month I wrote about the contents of my GM binder:
Once again, I hope you liked this journey through the archives of Tales of a GM. Did you find any lost treasures this week?
