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.

Three Years ago: Week 48
Finally, we reach 2014, where I promoted the July home of the roving Warlock’s Journal contest. The long blog post for week 48 was another look at my technique of weaving interludes into a campaign. This essay considers the potential problems you may encounter when using an interlude:
