One thought on “Episode 149: Not Preplanning

  1. I remember some of the crazy situation that came up in Dungeons and Dragons: Extended when I tried to encourage the PCs to do whatever the characters wanted to do. Sometimes it was crazy and awesome, sometimes it was…anticlimactic. I think as long as you communicate with the players that you’re not planning it goes all right, even with a crunchy system.
