New for the Summer Campaigns: The Party Scribe!

30 May

medieval-scribeAs those of you who have perused the Guild website already know, there have been posts saying what has happened in previous campaigns — Shattered Star and Rise of the Runelords — to preserve for future generations the triumphs and travails of our heroes.

I enjoy writing the summaries of our sessions from the campaigns. But I am now running 5 campaigns and it takes a lot of time for me to do them well, so I need to spread the love!

So there will be a new addition to the Campaigns starting next month: the Party Scribe! Here’s how it works:

  • At every session, we randomly select which player will be the Party Scribe. No one can be Party Scribe again, before everyone else has had their turn.
  • Before we are halfway toward the next session, the Party Scribe must email me a summary of at least 200 words, of what happened during the session. If you want, say it from your character’s point of view, or add stuff. Have fun with it!
  • I will then post it up on the Guild website, crying tears of pride in your creation! (Also, if I have set you up with an account, you can post it up yourself and add pictures to it!)
  • Whether and how well you do your write-up affects your XP in the campaign!
    • Turn nothing in – Lose one-fifth of a level
    • Turn something in late – Lose one-tenth of a level
    • Turn something so great that it is awesome! (I will only reward this occasionally) – Gain up to one-fifth of a level

That’s it! So get your writing muscles ready! There will be much awesomeness in our campaigns that must be recorded for future generations! 😀

    Or, of course, you could just email me what happened and i would translate it into Shakespearian and that would be the journal entry…

      But wherefore would you write it into verse?
      I could not count it as XP, you see,
      For gone from King in summer you will be
      And therefore far beyond the reach of me.
