    Encounter Design : Combat Encounters

    Encounter Design : Combat Encounters

    Encounters are the building blocks of every good TTRPG. Combat, chases, social challenges, and even the lowly “random encounter,” are what make up the challenges we set before the players.

    Revisit: Storytelling Styles

    Revisit: Storytelling Styles

    In Tabletop RPGs, there is great variation in settings, themes, and game systems. But what do WE, as Storytellers, bring to the table? Not all Storytellers are cut from the same cloth, and our unique styles can turn the same system into wildly different games! This week, Sara & Rob discuss what makes a storyteller’s style unique to them!

    Alternatives to Dice

    Alternatives to Dice

    “Dice” and “Role Playing” are like peanut butter and jelly - where one goes, the other always follows … or do they? Not every game uses dice to resolve tests! Cards, tokens, “special” dice, and even Jenga towers and Rock/Paper/Scissors can be used! This week, Sara & Rob look at alternatives to dice, as well as when and why you would use them.
