Ragnar’s Keep is coming!

In February 2019 when I whiled away a train journey by sketching a castle, little did I know what I was letting myself in for. I had done it to work out what the castle on top of Heroic Maps' Mydstep Keep dungeon might look like before I ruined it, to try to make sure … Continue reading Ragnar’s Keep is coming!

RPGaDay2019 Day 31 – Last

It's August 31st, day 31 of #RPGaDay2019, and the Last day, following Connection yesterday and a whole month of posts. And the inspiration today, appropriately enough, is Last. This seems like an appropriate time to have a retrospective on the season. But first, I claim the triumph of completing it, and not only completing it, … Continue reading RPGaDay2019 Day 31 – Last

RPGaDay2019 Day 24 – Triumph and Day 25 – Calamity

Triumph and Calamity. Those are the inspirations for days 24 and 25 of #RPGaDay2019, following Surprise yesterday. And I'm going to take advantage of being a little bit behind to consider them together. After all, they are flip sides of the same coin. They are both significant events in the story of the campaign. Without … Continue reading RPGaDay2019 Day 24 – Triumph and Day 25 – Calamity

RPGaDay2019 Day 23 – Surprise

Surprise. That's the inspiration for day 23 of #RPGaDay2019, following Lost yesterday. How much should you try to surprise your players? On the one hand, you don't want the story to be too predictable, and for everything to always run the same way. You want to keep the players on their toes a bit, otherwise … Continue reading RPGaDay2019 Day 23 – Surprise
