So, I ran an Arabian Nights style BRP game for some friends last night. It went well.
Strangely, it turns out that no matter how much (or how little) I prep for a game it is exactly twice as much as we have time for. So that means the adventure isn’t finished. Folks do want to get together and complete it, though, so that’s nice.
The downside to not having finished is that I can’t post the notes I made, compiled together brilliantly by me into the PocketMod format. I’m insanely proud of the work I did (as in, it’s really not that impressive, and yet I’m inordinately pleased with myself) putting pretty near all the notes I needed into a little eight 1/8th page book. It’s kind like the whole 1-page dungeon thing, but cuter and without a map.
Anyway, since there’s a chance that one of the players could stumble across it, I’ll save posting it until after we’re done.
Also, I want to wax rhapsodically for a moment about the player who took the bait and swung down from the party’s flying carpet, high above the desert, to the one that had come up beneath them, whose passengers were trying to cut the party’s carpet. It was very exciting pulpy genre action and the dude gets points for diving right in. Big fun.
Oh, and the good thing about not having finished is that it doesn’t actually impact my ability to work on the blog, since I already did the prep work. Expect more content soon.
Lastly, are any of you folks who read this thing baseball fans? More to the point, are any of you the type to play fantasy baseball? If so, let me know in the comments. I might have a proposition for you.
I might be looking for a fantasy baseball game.
Keep your eye on your inbox, LK. I’ll be sending you something shortly.
Oh, and leaping from one flying carpet to another?
Ten out of ten for style!
Yeah, it was definitely the highlight. I’m just glad the player took the bait!
