The Forgotten Scrolls series is a weekly look at articles previously published during 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 another list of famous people I would like to game with. For the purpose of this article, I focused on actors:
Last Week: Week 204
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 continued my theme of managing my time. The latest article presented a detailed breakdown of my prep routine:
Last Month: Week 201
Four weeks ago, I backed the Kickstarter for Escape the Dark Castle, the first ever boardgame I supported. In that week I also posted the report from my recent visit to UK Games Expo. We toured the Trade Hall as a family, which was not as successful as I had hoped:
Six Months Ago: Week 179

Two Years ago: Week 101
Winding back another year to 2015, I promoted the kickstarter for 14 Days, the game I recently hacked for the current Shadows of Ulubrae cycle of tales. My long blog post for week 101 was a return to the long-running Trollbabe series. This article explores the use of pivot points in the narrative:
Three Years ago: Week 49
Finally, we reach 2014, where I promoted another Kickstarter, this time for Barbarians of Lemuria. The long blog post for week 49 was yet another look at my technique of weaving interludes into a campaign. This essay considers the story problems you may encounter when using an interlude:
Once again, I hope you liked this journey through the archives of Tales of a GM. Did you find any lost treasures this week?
