Forgotten Scrolls 39: Week 202


The Forgotten Scrolls series is a weekly look at articles previously published during my almost four 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 tools in My Life with Master as a method of defining leaders in RPGs:


My Life with Leader: Interlocking Leadership Motivations




Last Week: Week 201

Another weekly series of relevance is where I post an Updated article to the blog. This essay previously appeared at Ennead Games, but now returns home. Last week’s Updated article explored the limitations of single-word abilities in narrative games, such as my beloved HeroQuest:


Updated: Banning single-word Abilities in HeroQuest



Last Month: Week 198

Four weeks ago, I reviewed a book of Anglo-Saxon monastic sign language. In that week I posted yet another instalment of my series inspired by the February Blog Carnival. Part 9 looked at ways to run encounters without a mechanical contest:


February ‘17 Carnival: Improv Encounters 9, No Contests



Six Months Ago: Week 176

Further back, in December 2016, I launched the much-delayed Best of 2015 pdf. The long blog post for week 176 was an overview of my purchases at Dragonmeet:




Last Year: Week 150

Stepping back to June, I reviewed the powerful One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. My long article for week 150 continued the synchronization of my favourite conventions. This week I posted a review of my purchases at UK Games Expo:


UK Games Expo 2016: The Swag



Two Years ago: Week 98

Winding back another year to 2015, I reviewed Play Dirty 2, by John Wick. My long blog post for week 98 was my third contribution to my summer hosting of the Blog Carnival. This article explored the different ways farming communities celebrated over the summer:


Summerland: Farming Festivals



Three Years ago: Week 46

Finally, we reach 2014, where I promoted the voting for the June Warlock’s Journal. The long blog post for week 46 was a rare guest post, promoting exciting roleplaying:


Flat Social Roleplaying & How to Avoid It



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
