Note-taking is serious business.

Any long-form roleplaying game benefits from good notes, but in a game as steeped in mystery and hidden truths as Invisible Sun, they're even more important. You'll want to track revelations about plot arcs, your personal character arc, relationships, and setting lore.

+Bruce R Cordell shares the different techniques for note taking used by each player of their Invisible Sun game - lots of methods here that you might want to try out in any of your games!
