Stretching scenes: Less prep time, better games!Written by Expy - Published on June 5, 2008
Less prep time. Better game.
Here’s an easy to make your next gaming session more fun without spending much time preparing:
- Build on what you already have.
Think about ways to make that scene – either combat or non-combat – longer. Can you weave a long-lost friend or enemy in that scenes? Can you add an environment threat, like a collapsing building, at the end of the scene? Can more enemies join the fray because an alarm sounded?
Anything that can make the scene longer will save you time and add to the entertainment value of your game.
- Forces PCs to use all their abilities.
- Keeps players on their toes for upcoming sessions
- Saves you time.
Why wouldn’t you do it?
