It’s December, and that means Rising Phoenix Games is hosting the RPG Blog Carnival. This month, it’s “Fun for One”. Read on and find out how you can join in on the RPG-flavored action.
‘Tis the Season to be Mental
Aargh! It’s December again! Is the Christmas spirit supposed to be this silly? Is the mad rush of buying gifts worth the heart attack? Any way you paint it, December is always a “special month”, much like mommy’s “special boy” who’s mostly unruly but can have his moments of genuine humanity.
At Rising Phoenix Games, December means gift-giving, hiding toy soldiers in Christmas trees, eating too much chocolate, and hosting RPG Blog Carnival.
RPG Blog Carnival and Fun for One
RPG Blog Carnival is hosted by a different blogger every month, throughout the year, with each blogger suggesting a topic for the month. Any RPG blogger can take part by writing about the topic and posting a link in the comments section. You can write as many articles as you like, too, and we’ll compile them all into a roundup that’ll come out around the 1st of 2022. So, if you love reading RPG blogs, this is the place to be, all month long.
Our topic this month is “Fun for One”, and you can swing that any way you like. Here are a few ideas:
- Write about a session nobody but the GM enjoyed. It happens! Give us some ideas to help us avoid the same train smash.
- Tell us about a game you ran for a friend.
- Create a big bad boss for your favorite system. Make sure your creation is tough as nails and hard to take down.
- Make some magical items that give a hero plenty of perks, at the expense of a curse on the party.
- Write an encounter or short adventure using the theme “Fun for One”. We have loads of cheap stock maps to inspire you.
- Make a short RPG for one player, or for one player and a GM. Or write an RPG where every player controls the same character, much like in Everyone is John.
- Give us some ideas for turning character creation, which usually is only fun for one, into something the whole group can enjoy together.
- Talk about how you handle splitting the party.
- Build some diabolical traps that are designed to target one hero only.
- Make critical fumbles the most fun thing to roll with new rules that’ll amaze and entertain.
We look forward to seeing those posts rolling in.
