Forgotten Scrolls 45: Week 208

 

The Forgotten Scrolls series is a weekly look at articles previously published during 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 was the second part of a short series focused on a catacomb location used in a previous cycle of tales. I concluded by presenting the attributes chosen for the location:

 

Villa Catacombs, Part 2: Bringing it Together

 

 

 

Last Week: Week 207

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 was the last in a short series about running chases in HeroQuest, or similar narrative games. The focus this time was on when the Heroes are being chased:

 

Updated: Chasing HeroQuest, Part 3: Pursued

 

 

Last Month: Week 204

Four weeks ago, I reviewed the old Fighting Fantasy RPG, based upon the adventure books. In that week I also launched the Storm & Shield contest I hosted in July. The compilation pdf for this will launch tomorrow:

 

Warlock’s Journal Contest, Storm & Shield 8: Doomsday Devices

 

 

Six Months Ago: Week 182

Further back, in January, I was launched my FebShoMo project, where I brainstorm plots and short stories every day in February. The long blog post for week 182 was my fourth contribution to the January Blog Carnival I hosted. I continued my month of themed essays by presenting three random tables used to generate prophecies for RPGs:

 

Prophecies & Omens Part 4: Generating Prophecies

 

 

Last Year: Week 156

Stepping back to July 2016, I celebrated passing 1000 blog posts. My long article for week 156 was another in my improv gaming series. This contribution explained how I use the prepared story elements during the game:

 

Improv Gaming, Part 5: Using Story Elements

 

 

Two Years ago: Week 104

Winding back another year to 2015, I was counting down to Dragonmeet once again. My long blog post for week 104 was an essay exploring films as research for RPGs:

 

Dismantling the Movies: Film as RPG Research

 

 

Three Years ago: Week 52

Finally, we reach 2014, where I noted the latest home for the roving Warlock’s Journal contest. The long blog post for week 52 was another guest post by Kenny the Solo Sage:

 

Guest Post: Stumbling at the First Hurdle

 

 

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

Phil
