DM's Session Review

We started at noon with a campaign world briefing and overview that took around 90 minutes, then got into playing the game. Ran the initial meeting of the characters as the intro, right into the first quest. Played until 3+ am Saturday, started again at 11am Sunday.

Combat pacing went pretty well using 6-second rule and flow control. Lots of social RP and action during the 1st storyline quest. Group got bogged down in social RP without storyline or action after the 1st storyline quest, and never made it to the 2nd one as a result (ran out of time.) Players did discover one of the available side quests, and completed that.

Need some additional flow control tools for social RP to make it smooth and forward the action (something analogous to the 6-second rule and the prepped combat actions/summons for combat stuff).

  • TOTAL: 1709

.

NOTES:

  • This was our first session, and item rewards are being given for backstories, so, no "Excellent RP (out of game)" awards were available this time around.
  • Also, we did well despite a couple people still figuring out their characters' voice / personality, and us being new to the world overall, so, "Excellent RP (in game)" awards might be maxed in the future with this group.
  • I'm awarding 100 XP to Shrop for showing up On Time for the clearing conversation Saturday, to be added to his character whenever he starts play.
