Forgotten Scrolls 40: Week 203


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 tools from the Saga of the Icelanders RPG for enhancing relationships between Heroes and GMCs. Here are several ways to add greater value to such connections:


Friends & Neighbours, Empowering Relationships at the Table




Last Week: Week 202

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 converted the fairies in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream into RPG terms, at least for narrative games:


Updated: Shakespearean Faeries in RPGs



Last Month: Week 199

Four weeks ago, I was in my final countdown for our visit to UK Games Expo. In that week I posted my contribution to the May Blog Carnival. This looked at ways my current campaign is failing to meet my goals, especially in regard to Cults:


May ‘17 Carnival: Cult Magic Failures



Six Months Ago: Week 177

Further back, in December 2016, I tried once again to recruit more subscribers for my weekly newsletter, Whispers of a GM. The long blog post for week 177 was my contribution to the December Blog Carnival, where I wrote about city sewers in RPGs:




Last Year: Week 151

Stepping back to June, I reviewed the Icelandic Bandamana Saga. My long article for week 151 continued the pattern of Blog Carnival contributions listed here. This week I wrote about fairies of summer:


June Blog Carnival: Summer Fae



Two Years ago: Week 99

Winding back another year to 2015, I reviewed my beloved HeroQuest, in one of the most popular articles on the blog. My long blog post for week 99 was my fourth contribution to my summer hosting of the Blog Carnival. This article explored the different ways to present summer season food in RPGs:




Three Years ago: Week 47

Finally, we reach 2014, where I promoted the Prime Time Kickstarter. The long blog post for week 47 was yet another Blog Carnival essay. This month I wrote about a hole we brainstormed as part of the campaign:

Once again, I hope you liked this journey through the archives of Tales of a GM. Did you find any lost treasures this week?
