RPG 101



The first episode of RPG 101 debuts in the October 2009 episode of Games in Libraries. Find the episode here: http://www.gamesinlibraries.org/?p=155.

I thought I'd start this separate thread to open it up for suggestions/comments. Right now I'm prepping for the November episode. I was thinking of doing an introduction to D&D and using the low-cost starter boxed set as a way to quickly introduce new players to the game.

I will be running a demonstration table of D&D at the BG library for Gaming Day. I'm going through the new rule-set now and hope to play through the examples in the book with my sons.

It's worth repeating that I am open to suggestions to make my segment better. I am keeping it as basic as possible to start. I am assuming the librarians listening have no knowledge of tabletop RPGs. I will also be soliciting suggestions from the librarians on their community forum.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions, feedback and support.

Follow Your Bliss,
JJ



The December episode is up with a short RPG101 segment that covers what I did at the BG library on ngd@yl:http://www.gamesinlibraries.org/?p=168

On a related subject, I have stepped up to do the audio editing for the Games in Libraries podcast for 2010. Dr. Nicholson is stepping down. I will be working with a committee member who will solicit the content and post the show notes. So I'll be providing a segment and editing the podcast once a month. Shouldn't be too bad (fingers crossed).

Follow Your Bliss,
JJ



The next episode is slated for after NGD@yl (Nov. 14) so I will talk about D&D by way of why I chose to run it for the national event. I only have 10 minutes so it will be a cursory review at best, but I hope for some positive feedback from the event to include in my segment.

Just downloaded it, and I'm hoping to listen to all of it tonight.

That sounds like an excellent start. I'll see what ideas come to me as I listen to the episode, and send them your way.
