I’m running a con-game this weekend, and I was wondering: is it worth spending time up-front to get people on the same thematic page? Is there any good way of doing this?
I had one idea (but it might be too much): start with a blank page, and write “VOID” in the middle. Then ask these questions and jot down the answers?
– What is a “fantasy” world – from a novel, movie or RPG – that you like but is not quite your favorite?
– What is something interesting you’ve read recently – fiction or non-fiction, but not “fantasy”?
Maybe more questions like this? But, I’m going to be coming to the table with my own ideas, and it may be better at a con game to simply come out with a strong creative hand. Thoughts?
