This may be our eighth Knights of Reignsborough episode, but it is our 7th – and final – sandbox session. This time around we discuss two house rules designed to support the style we’re wanting to foster and create the environment for authentic comic character development.
We explore the core concept mechanic. You know what we’re talking about here, right? Spider-man has his whole “With great power comes great responsibility” thing. Superman’s got “Rocketed to Earth from the dying planet Krypton he fights a never ending battle for truth, justice, and the American way.” These concepts guide their respective characters and provide a metric by which they are judged, rewarded or punished as appropriate. We develop a mechanic for that.
PLEASE NOTE: Our next episode, our first actual play, will release on December 24th. Our recording schedule is transitioning to bi-weekly through at least the end of December.
