At the Patreon, I began a deeper discussion of my breakdown of "setting" into three more useful terms: backdrop, situation, and scene(s). I presented it first in Circle of Hands and referenced it a lot since then.

After a long-ish hiatus from the Runequest: Roleplaying in Glorantha duet, we jumped right to it when we started session 12 last weekend. And goddamn did we jump into the deep end. I’m going to relate the fictional events of play, then reflect on some questions of prep that the session raised.

Ever since Sean talked to me about consulting for his project The Empire of the Dragon Lotus, I've been looking through old files and papers for the earliest work by that name that I remembered from him, fifteen to seventeen years ago. I wanted to review some points of interest - especially since what he was working with now seemed to me pale or lacking in spark, at least as I'd recalled being there, if not what exactly.

Hi everybody, at Ron's suggestion I recorded a video conversation with the players of my recent Champions Now game. This kicked off as a text discussion, with Manu asking me after the close of the game if I had any insights, and me saying this:

I mailed Ron about an AP post I made on my blog, about a great Trollbabe session I played, and he suggested linking to it here. So, in case you are interested, here's the link. I describe some pivotal moments in the game, but I especially try to analyse what makes Trollbabe work as a character-driven roleplaying game.

I’ve been wanting to try Trollbabe for awhile, so was very pleased to get to try it recently with two fun players. I was the GM, first time running Trollbabe. Each of the players picked a different location, so I did my best to prep each one as the rules suggested. One player picked the Silent Forest, the other Kragg Keep.

Hi all, here’s a link to a session in the Trollbabe game I’ve been playing with Adept Play stalwart Robbie and his daughter Lara. I had a lot of artistic involvement with Trollbabe in the early days, but never managed to play it successfully oh so many years ago, so to finally get it off the ground is really satisfying. It’s turned into a bit of a project, as you’ll see.

I've played a whole lot of Trollbabe at Spelens Hus, so far with three sessions and five players, although not all of the latter at once. There isn't too much to say! Everything has been berserk and fun and gory and funny and heroic, the whole time.

Megan Bennett-Burks and I toss some topics back and forth mainly because we both grapple with them. You'll probably recognize my beefs with crowdfunding, or rather, how it happened to turn out in practice, despite my support for the basic idea; also, my ongoing effort to distinguish between text as teaching vs. reference vs. user manual.
