I'm Drinking At the Tavern!
Actually it's more like I've written a post that Tenkar was nice enough to put up!
I had thought about writing a post that discussed why we should abandon our European adventure settings and instead start exploring the surrounding world we live in because that's far more interesting. I started working on that article a couple of weeks ago focusing on the wide variety of options available based on just looking at what's around you and using things like abandoned mines and under-cities as the inspiration for your future games.
Then I got bored.
So I decided to write about one of my games where things went off the rails after my part was done. It was a hell of a lot more fun to write so I completely abandoned the other post. I submitted it to Erik and he posted it this morning. So far it's gotten three comments:
Venger Santis: "Is flash fiction what you had in mind for guest posters, Erik?"
Fore Shame: "Nope, I don't get it."
Charles Akins: "Me either."
Seems to me like I'm winning the internet this morning! Hope you guys and gals enjoy that post as much as they did!
