Forgotten Scrolls 33: Week 196


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 explained how I run a chase under the HeroQuest rules, when the Heroes are chasing their quarry. This is a sequel to last week’s guest post:


Pursuit Sequences in HeroQuest 2, Part 2, Chasing




Last Week: Week 195

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 different ways for Heroes to grow in an RPG:


Updated: Personal Growth, Part 1



Last Month: Week 192

Four weeks ago, I reviewed the excellent Ender in Exile, by Orson Scott Card. Week 192 was another in my intermittent series about top four RPGs. This week I reviewed my top four RPG cities, many of which have appeared in my Tales of the Hero Wars campaign, at one time or another:


My Big Four RPG Cities



Six Months Ago: Week 170

Further back, in November 2016, I launched the Prime and Nemesis pdf from a previous round of the Shield & Storm contest. The long blog post for week 170 was my second preview for my Heroic Nicknames book. This essay presented the tables for colour-based nicknames:




Last Year: Week 144

Stepping back to May, I noted how UK Games Expo was only four weeks away. My long article for week 144 was the third instalment of my Blog Carnival series about planar weather. Part 3 presented tables for generating the weather found on the Plane of Ice in my campaign:


RPG Blog Carnival, Part 3: Niflheim Weather



Two Years ago: Week 92

Winding back another year to 2015, I reviewed my swag from Diceni, the local convention in Norwich. My long blog post for week 92 was another one born of our recent game of My Life with Master, and how the game presents leaders:


My Life with Leader: Interlocking Leadership Motivations



Three Years ago: Week 40

Finally, we reach 2014, where I promoted the Mandragora blog. The feature article for week 40 was a look at the relationship mechanisms from the Saga of Icelanders game:


Friends & Neighbours, Empowering Relationships at the Table



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
