This session was a little different than our usual campaign episodes. It didn’t involve the main roster (for the most part.) No, this session was a chance to let the players scratch that itch and play their backup character. Anyone who has played tabletop RPGs knows that when you make a character, they’re just numbers on a page until you take them out for a spin. When they interact with the environment – and other players – they go from being a concept to an actual character. Personalities begin to develop.
That’s what I wanted for these characters. Give them some dice time, and let them interact with the World. See if what worked on paper translated to the actual game. This session was a one-shot to get the group (affectionately known as the B-Team) a bit of experience so that these backup characters could be called up to the main roster with a bit of dice-time to them.
How did the session go? Well, good for some. For others, not so much. Read for yourself in Rise of the Runelords Episode 29 – The Golemworks Incident!
