Live Action Role Playing (LARP)



Not all role playing takes place at the table, with dice and paper. Some games are played in live-action, where the players act out the roles of their characters, and elaborate props and costumes are used. Live Action Role Playing (LARP) may differ significantly from TTRPGs, but at the core, we’re still telling compelling stories. Rob & Sara not only discuss the hoby, but share their own experiences!

Encounter Design : Out of Scope



As we close our mini-series on Encounter Design, Rob & Sara discuss… the rest. Out of scope Encounters! Perhaps your players made a bet and gambling is on the table. Or what seems like a simple stop becomes a battle of the bards. Sometimes you have the beginning and end of a plot but no middle, perhaps some encounters? This episode wraps the discussion and helps “fill the gaps”.

Encounter Design : Not-So-Random Encounters



Continuing our mini-series on Encounter Design, Rob & Sara delve this week into Random Encounters! Are you grossly underprepared for the current story and need “filler”?

Using Props



We often associate Tabletop RPGs with dice, paper, and pencils. Some of us also include miniatures, terrain, and other visual aids.

This week, Sara & Rob discuss the utility of using props in your storytelling, as well as some of the do’s and don’ts.
