As we gear up for the holiday season, it’s a good time to look back. Specifically, it’s time to look back through the old Angry e-mail and answer some more reader questions. Here’s some questions about illusionist villains, elven aging, and running solo adventures.
What’s a one-shot adventure? What’s a single-session adventure? And how is writing them different from writing any other adventure? In this Ask Angry, I answer those questions and also reference The Last Starfighter!
This week, I ponder the question of when it’s okay to take control of a character away from a player thanks to a question from a reader with a really dumb name.
Sanity mechanics? What are they? How do they work? Are they even necessary? Can we make them better? Let’s Ask Angry!
This week, I tackle two different questions related by the theme of, umm, players doing things. Yeah. First, how to handle two players going at the same time in combat. Second, how to handle players doing things between adventures.
In this week’s Ask Angry, Brendan asks Angry how to get the PCs to run away from monsters so that he can run a sandbox game without any structure. And I tell him how to build a better campaign instead.
Once again, we’re digging into the massive well of Ask Angry questions to see if we can’t squeeze 5,000 words out of an interesting question. This week, let’s write an honor system for D&D!
