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.

Three Years ago: Week 45
Finally, we reach 2014, where I backed the kickstarter for Backstory Cards. The long blog post for week 45 was another in my series of conjuring up a dream set of gamers for an RPG. This time I thought about actors:
