Planning is for suckers. I mostly wing it, write down cool ideas, and work with my players to drive the game. Every action has a reaction, and this tends to cause the drama in any given narrative.
Recently, I found myself giving some solicited advice, and a slow epiphany broke upon me. I've finally come to understand how I prep for sessions/campaigns as a GM/DM(been a while)/LN/SM/What-Have-You. I've been doing things ...

Ya. I've ran entire campaigns off of mostly blank pieces of paper with a few doodles of skulls, lots of calligraphed curse words (dunno writing the word fuck in flowing script amuses me) , and randomly scrawled NPC names. But, when you're constantly pulling things outta yer ass, some things, especially NPCs, will fall flat or feel phoned-in. Agreed? A little bit o' prep goes a long as way. The above example took me like 20 minutes; 10 of which was polishing for a public audience, a step normally avoided. Depending on how heavily the players bight on any o' the potential hooks, that 10 minutes of prep yields 1-3 five hour sessions.

loosing enthusiasm is one of my biggest sins. I'll be really into something for three months, then loose my nerdboner for it when I start reading Master and Commander.

TL;DR: I'm not OK, neither are you, this is OK. I'm going to do a thing I swore I'd never touch.

Zeb Cook designed a Conan game where deciding parentage was part of character creation. I have a totally legal copy of it somewhere...
I was raised by my grandparents. Most of my values I learned from them, or I should have. I'm of a nature that I will not learn the meaning of flames until I've been burned. Nevertheless, I had a prime example of what it mean...

The crock is also something of a safeguard against banditry as well. If I'm risking my life for plunder, I'd have to be very desperate indeed to go after a workhouse full of rope and seed.
It all started when the good Gnome, Mr. Martin Rayla, shared his idea to randomly generate a hex map. I got the time to actually make one a few days later (check it out if you haven't yet). Ever since,the resultant microsetti...
