And it does seem that the original site is not to be found. A decent article, though the analogy seems overwrought and in some cases, obvious.

This is excellent for what it is - a discussion of a carefully planned and executed campaign. I don't think this is the way all campaigns should unfold, but it still great.

LARPing can indeed be very fun. I played NERO for several years and got some great memories.

Very fun and do it before you get old and creaky!

This is a good one. It seems to cover the continuum quite well. I'd say I am generally a 2.5 as well.

I like this item. Lots of potential for chaos and subterfuge for the unwary, who seem to be legion.

This is a great place as the target of a quest for the PCs. Add some dangerous places en route, and instant adventure.

A wonderful, overlooked technology.

In addition to their simple utility, pottery can add other aspects to your game:


Like modern archaeology, pottery vessels could be used to tell stories, formula, spells, locations of great secrets. Weakness of enemies.

Trade Goods:

Due to various techniques being jealously guarded by their craftsmen, or through the enforcement of commercial laws, desirable pottery items could easily be the subject of trade missions.

As the PCs travel the road, right after a bend they hear a sharp whistle and call: "Heeey, not so lazy, move your asses!" It is a large man that calls, and there are unwilling workers that listen. A small company, 10-15 men work on the road, push boulders aside, dig up roots from under the road, etc. The large man that shouted turns to you, smiles fast and mutters something under his breath, sounds like cursing some lazy worker. "Where does the road bring you from, travellers?" And does a little small-talk.

And what is really happening? A group of bandits is 'adapting' the road for shady purposes. The road will not be wider, but tighter, with enough cover around (and a few traps perhaps), and will become an ideal spot for ambushing travellers or entire caravans. The bandit leader wants them all to appear harmless. The 'lazy worker' he cursed was actually a guard that should give warning before any travellers come around (fallen asleep). Not surprisingly, the boss may decide for an ambush even now.
