  • Yup!

    So, like during Covid, I might have gone a little stir crazy, and built my own little universe with this massive (and tweaked-as-they-went) collection of story arcs. I used stardrifter’s rules

    The way I’ve learned to do it is to build some sort of resurrection system in as the game progresses. The one shot style single-night campaigns with fresh characters, those are where I’m allowed to create new and interesting (and usually hilarious) ways for them to die.

    It’d be like me doing some slight of hand with the deck and telling fortunes or something. “an here we have the Ace of Spades, a clear indication of strength and nobilty. You have a challenge ahead of you; but you will face it with dignity. And with with … oh dear… the suicide king, that is a powerful omen of self-sabotage. but I have a charm against ill omens for thirty internet points!”
