[Gaming] What to do when unprepared for a session?-

Tim Shorts of Gothridge Manor posted THIS.

Here was my response:
One Stargate Atlantis episode
One MASH episode
One Survivorman / Man v. Wild episode

Place episodes in a bag filled with loose particulate crunch (Falling damage, Poison Saves, Trap Avoidance, Fire or Drowning Hazards, Overland Movement/Evasion, etc,) and shake thoroughly until evenly coated.
--Remove from bag and place in sandbox.

Smoke lightly with aromatic herb

10-15 minutes later, place notes on a single sheet of lined paper, while allowing sketch to cool on graph or hex paper.

Serve while still warm.

Serves up to party of 20.

Enjoy :D

* Stargate Atlantis, MASH, and Wilderness Survival episodes may be freely exchanged with episodes, chapters, or scenes from any other preferred cut of entertainment.

I'll be doing much the same, as I've had a rough week, and not much time to work on the Isle of the Slavers.
--I have the map drawn and scanned, but my USB network configuration won't allow me to use the WACOM tablet and the external hard drive at the same time, so I have been unable to modify/enhance/colourise the map.
---I have printed out the summary of last week's session to hand my players as a reminder, and I plan on finishing out Round 5's combat In Medias Res before answering any questions.


  1. In the 90's I did something similar to this for my "winging it" Champions games. I used The Rockford Files, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and The Carol Burnett show (Huh huh...I'm old...huh huh)

    >Smoke lightly with aromatic herb<

    The only way I got through it, kid. I think there may have been a little Moon Sugar involved there too.
