This is the second adventure in the “big group” Tunnels & Trolls game, which acquired another player along the way for a total of five in addition to me. For the two additions, this was their first role-playing experience, so certain points and topics about new players apply. Although I don’t have much to add to what Sam says so well in Late night post on new players.
The video includes a lot about preparation and application in play, as well as more thoughts about resolution and actions in long-round combat systems. If you’ve noted the many posts and comments about “situation” lately, then you’ll find many relevant, practical points here. We might also further discuss how religion, as a cultural institution, reared up as a central feature of play, especially my own sense of “well, we can’t avoid it” given what might have been throwaway or secondary content from the first adventure.
I think it’s a fun video even if it’s only me talking at you, and I provide the pictures and notes in the attached PDF to follow along with it. All thoughts and inquiries are welcome.
