If you're going to Revelation, how's your preparation going? All set or still scrambling to finish those games?

With three to prepare I'm glad that I took Friday off... and then I need to finish the badges!

I'm running two games for the first time. Largely there...

Ironsworn - I have a skeletal quest, illustrated with location cards, so I have gone for simple visuals. Asset cards are all printed and sleeved ready for player character selection. Rules, Move sheets and blank character sheets are good to go. I'd like to see what Vows and Bonds the players come up with to see if we can weave them into the outline and maybe take it all in an unexpected direction. Trying to stay light on my feet and give player input a chance to breathe and create.

Of course Ironsworn is also built for solo play, so I can always 'Consult the Oracle' and see what fate may bring at any moment in time...

The Veil - a mini setting and a story arc has been prepared to guide play and give the players space to be awesome with all their cool moves and abilities. I'm just working on a soundtrack - so using music rather than images, however it strikes me that in the space we have at The Garrison, I'm not sure how viable playing that will be with other games around. I'll need to check to see if I am in a Cell.

I've yet to tidy up the story arc, print out spare playbooks, and remind myself about States, how they Spike and other 'The Veil' goodness. Essentially, similar to Ironsworn in approach but quite different games.

Still a bit more to do but have some time on Thursday to finish off.

Looking forward to it. :)

I'm running Cartel, a game about drug cartels in Mexico and the effect they have on the people involved with the trade. Produced a map of Mexico as I thought my players might not have a good handle on the place plus a diagram or two covering routes used by drug gangs to move product.

Sunday I'm doing a two slotter of Alas for the Awful Sea, a game I kickstarted last year which produced a couple of nice books with the rules and some scenarios. Alas is a bit different from the usual PbtA games I run and I'm a little worried it might turn out to be more misery porn than I like. Still we play to find out don't we.

I'm hoping they all get lost at sea in a drowny TPK. Keep us briefed!

Printing complete. I've introduced a side quest for Ironsworn and printed out a location image for it. Another has just popped into my head. When a game and setting enthuses you, the ideas just flow don't they?

Is that Ironsworn a home print or a Lulu print? The spiral binding is strange, I have not seen one on a published role playing book before.

It is a send off the PDF to a print shop to spiral bind it. Cheap and effective. A POD will come out at some point I'm sure.

(I love this game)

It's cool, real life happens.

It's good I'm off today, as I got the final things I need to outline the plot arc for Sunday's game of The Sprawl this morning. No pressure on me... One game (DW) ready, another 90% ready (Tremulus) and a final one desperately being pulled together. Badges printed, but need to be printed out and cut and assembled.

Who are you using? That looks effective, especially as I have lost access to the printing and binding options I had at the old job.
Doxdirect About £13.50 for 200 pages spiral bound in black and white, with colour card covers and transparent overlay on top. When the Final version comes out I am going to experiment with their A5 size as it will be close to the 6x9 native.

That's tremulus completed, that's Saturday locked in and ready to roll. Except badges. Must chop badges up and put in holders.

Enjoying Cartel, Mexican drug wars with a feel of a TV series. Before that tremulus, which was fun but needs a rules rewrite.
