Creating Adventure Ideas Using One Sentence Plot Hooks
An episode of Gothridge Manor
By Tim Shorts
Welcome to my Anchor channel. You'll find nothing serious here. I talk about tabletop RPG gaming with a focus on the older editions and retro clones. Some folks call it the OSR, I just call it gaming. If you like rolling weird dice, talking in weird voices and just being weird, pull up a chair and stay a while.
It starts on one day. Ends on another. Call ins about post apocalyptic games and comment on my Stinky Game Session. Then is end with a recap of Monday's game and considering how to tweak the cleric to make him a bit more useful.
I just finished up my 15th NPC card, Gish. He's a froggy dude. It's the first one finished for my April Patreon. Then I give sneak peeks into my next adventure, The Solemn Dark. But that title will change. Oh, and I hit 90 patrons! Thanks to my new patrons. Jon Mayo, Richard Fraiser, a reupped Hobbs & Friends, and James Richards.
I wrangle Ian McGarth and Jayson 'Rocky' Gardner of Silver Bulette into the Gothridge Manor to talk about their current Kickstater, Creeping cold.
There are creatures, groups and places that have an influence with the world around them. I talk about mini boss monsters that hold sway over small territories and they could intersect with other mini boss monsters. Then taking these influences and add them to your campaign world.
Plus great calls from Joe the Lawyer, Vance A., and Spikepit! Thanks guys!
I completed my 80th Micro-Adventure, Macceum Sewer. I go through each of the thirteen room and share ho I created them and ways I may GM a situation.
I am planning on moving Gothridge Manor in 2019. Not sure yet, but looking at potential property. Some how I digress into details of my Patreon and all the fantastic people I back there and a a view backstage of how much is made and how much goes out. Lastly, a unneeded reminder to enjoy the holidays. We have a finite number of them.
I recently purchased two Anchorcasters products. Larry Hamilton's, Locks, Vaults, and Hiding Places. And Howard Belieff's, A Bakers Denizen. Both use the PWYW option. I wanted to share my experience this pricing strategy.
Want to know more about my Micro-Adventures for June. Hyroth my NPC card, leader of a fake cult. Adventure Time game time tracker card. And Into the Ruins, a short adventure that could take the party to Hell.
I like to develop character background using the players ideas and then giving them information specific to the character. Run one or two individual sessions to grow the character into the campaign world.
I'm developing a hexcrawl campaign using Komor Forest, my setting I've used for the past year when writing my Micro-Adventures and Micro-Locations. I put a poll into my G+ feed to see what folks would prefer, a podcast or video.
