I finished the diet bet at 13st and 5 lbs. I lost my target of 8 lbs however I did it in 5 weeks not 4. I was not alone in missing my target however neither of my 2 colleagues hit their targets so all wanting to carry on with the motivation we gained in november we have carried the bet on into december. My new target is to get to 13st by Friday the 21st of December.
On Saturday I went to Dragonmeet, a games convention in Kensington. I Got my copy of Feng Shui Signed by Robin Laws, I listened to the live Ken and Robin Talk about stuff podcast and Had a feast day lunch in a whole foods shop.
Shui is one of my favorite role playing games and I still use a bunch
of the ideas from its GM advice section. My favorite piece of advice
from it and one that Rob Donahue has blogged about here, is The Think of Three Cool places to have a fight method of adventure writing.
the advice is to think of three cool places to have a fight, think of
cool things that could happen during a fight in those places then write
backstory and a clue chain to help the players get from one place to the
next. Another really interesting twist to it is the three fights don’t
have to be fights, but they should be the important scenes for that
session and the bridging scenes are opportunities for you to show how
badass your Player characters are.
A couple of the coolest places I have set fights recently are:
The Circle of Doom - This dungeon is awesome.
On a Boat - bonus points if it is sinking or has rammed another ship.
is the coolest place you have set or played a fight or other important
scene in an RPG? Where is the coolest place you have been in real life
that you could set a fight in or at?
