Dungeon Master Session Notes

    Newer Older

    An example of the preparations I make for an evening of gaming, when I'm not doing full adventure write-ups in a PDF. A small A5 notebook with doodles, notes, stats. It usually takes two to three pages per evening. As you can see, bandit leader Musashi, the evil cleric Itō, and six thieves managed to escape. 22 of them died in those two days… I think Musashi will have to abandon his plans for setting up camp here in the area. Perhaps he'll take up adventuring? :)

      I feel like the national archive has just released top secret government documents! My DM notes usually remained locked in a time sensitve vault for 20 years.

      Haha! In fact last week a player in my group, who had missed a few sessions, complained: “But… but… the maps are online in Flickr! I saw them!!” I try to make sure that the players have gone through the stuff before I publish it. Of course there are the usual 20% of stuff I prepared in vain… But to be honest with you, I suspect my players are not faithfully studying my notes. I'm thinking of fellow DMs…

      Oh, I'd love to play role games again... It was so fascinating and relaxing. I finished one round of Vampire and started Dungeons and Dragons (as a player) in Finland. I then moved to Germany and had to leave the D&D... :-I

      We're always looking for more people to play. I'm running a weekly game in Zürich, and if we're more people, we might as well run more sessions. We are around seven regulars, and usually there are four or five per session. If you or anybody else reading this is interested, mail me at kensanata@gmail.com.
