Day 21 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Push’.
I love pushing the narrative forward. I play RPGs to experience an adventure, to be surprised at clever plot twists and to learn something new about the game world. I love it when a character motivation is used in a plot, but I’m not overly fond of extremely character-focused play. I want to have an adventure, not play out how the characters sit in the pub chattering.
And since I play a lot of one-shots, the players are always quite cooperative in taking the ‘bait’ and discovering the adventure — no pushing needed!
