I think I’ll call this mini-campaign, “Please and Shank You,” which was a quote tonight in regards to Amberites and their manners.
So far it’s an odd little group. Two of the people haven’t played before or read the books, and the other is a semester away from being a graduate of Minion University, if you know what I mean. Originally the plan was to make it a no-holds-barred Throne War, but instead I’ve actually got things like Plot and Development. (P&D, the ol’ one-two. Erm.)
It took a while to make characters. I started doing my standard recitation of the books and decided I need to make it more interesting, so I skipped forward and punctuated some of the highlights. I need to develop a snappy patter for it.
I asked them if they wanted horror, adventure, light-hearted soap opera, or another mood to the game. We got one vote for fairly light-hearted, so I’m peppering it with silly innuendo and some odd NPCs. It’s gotten plenty bloody so far, though less so than the horror scenario I had prepped to run.
