As I’m trying to read Silent Titans
every now and then, I sigh as I realize that my brain is probably too puny and my imagination too boring for this. Feeling overwhelmed and unsure whether I can make use of this at the table.
product have you actually used and liked using at the table? Even Stonehell
has a lot of text for my taste. I guess Castle of the Mad Arch Mage
worked pretty well more than fifty sessions.
I am reminded of advice I recently gave somebody, regarding adventures for newbies:
“I would write my own, I think.
That’s because I think finding a scenario and preparing a scenario takes time in which you could have written your own. And having written your own, you will never fear getting it wrong.
Even the One Page Dungeon Contest
submissions are too much to read through. You’ll get lost wondering whether this or that fits your aesthetics better, whether this or that plays better with the table, whether this or that offers something your players might enjoy. And all this uncertainty about picking an adventure tells me that you already know all the things you need.
Trust me on this: writing up something simple for a night is quicker than finding and reading and prepping anything else and you’ll feel better at the table, too.”
