Episode 530 – a fast read of a character

* (0:31) Fear the Con’s Kickstarter and Con Planner site.

* (1:45) We’d appreciate it if you gave us a review on whatever site or app you use to consume the show!

* (4:13) Wayne brings some sample characters for us to interpret on the fly, inspired by his experience with pre-generated characters in a one-shot game.

* (9:48) The D&D sheet Dan was reading from. Paring down the sheet to a small number of interesting and actionable items.

* (19:09) Expelling and improvising quite a bit more.

* (25:31) Reading what isn’t on the sheet.

* (30:11) Playing off of each other’s characters.

* (38:22) Applying similar ideas to a minimalist sheet. The SoG sheet Dan was reading from.

* (44:14) Wayne pulling identity from the average.

* (48:16) Being mindful of the other players when looking at the obvious links.

* (52:01) Starting from the weaknesses instead of strengths.

38:00 “How to GM for a player that’s playing a bully without resulting in a player kill…” LOL this episode suddenly got dark! Seriously, though, great future topic. We’re not talking about player mistakes, but character personalities that aren’t nice. I need this episode!
