We are doing Jope’s quest, at the moment, and Andrew was down with food poisoning. So instead the guys let me run them through the Paizo organised play module which I will be running for real and for true on Wednesday.
The idea is that I ought to have enough gear to simply run the game with drop-in players.
- I was missing:
- something to wipe the mat with
- minis for characters
- spare character sheets
- The water-soluble pens don’t work very well on con-tact, although they are fine of the regular vinyl.
- There’s no substitute for just pencli, paper, and eraser
The guys blitzed the module – perhaps too easily, but they are very experienced players. Actually – some characters were dropped unconscious, so it wasn’t that easy. I handwaved one or two things (handed out a free cure light to everyone at one point).
I missed one or two important things. I won’t forget them wednesday … but only because I have played it once already. I won’t get this sort of dry run wit the rest of the games. There’s no easy fix – I just need to do the job better, is all.
Was a bit railroad-y. Organised play is a trifle soulless, not sure it’s really my thing. Not a lot of scope for role-play or originality – run the encounters, do the faction quests, and fill in the campaign sheet at the end.
We’ll see how it goes.
