Fuelling the craft of Gamemastery

For the last little while, my desire to run a game again has been slowly rising.

I've been thinking more about Out West, and since it's a Weird West setting, then it should including riding of various beasts of burden, right? But what should I use? I've been thinking of just using horses because it's easy and I don't have to worry about it anymore.I've been thinking about using some other … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 29 – Ride

Draft One Page Campaign Opener – Out West

After the Lich Wars, everyone wanted to forget the past and move on, but that was pretty difficult when you lived right beside people that fought for the other side, or when all your family and friends were long gone, or when your whole reason for being was the Wars.
