  • Behind the Screen: The indignity of a reboot… | StupidRanger.com
    keeping their attention and keeping them engaged Cue Summer of last year One of our group couldn t make regular games and I had just gotten the Tomb of Horrors so we agreed outside of game that we d like to suspend any serious activity on the main plot and play some sessions of the module I even devised a way that it could be organic to the plot so we did this This went swimmingly and we had a few months at the end of last year to further dive into the original plotline All was well The Return to the Past So the group tracks a cult along their plot to return back in time to prevent the destruction of the Big Bad Guy so they can bring him back to take over the world This goes great and back to the past they go After interacting with the previous incarnation of their hometown for a bit they follow the original threads of the plot to a few key points They had puzzled out the plot lines to follow but didn t really commit fully to one line instead they flipped back and forth between the plotlines and didn t really accomplish much A few sessions of this go by and before long my inability to plan a coherent way to get them back on course manifests itself I had determined that enough time had passed that surely something must have happened The plotlines remaining would have stretched out for another year or so at the rate we play and the lack of general focus was annoying at the worst and obvious at the best I decided there was no choice but to reboot the situation I chose a Hiro Nakamura style event to reboot I did a few very obvious SOMETHING HAS CHANGED time skips in the course of a single session culminating in the group s return to their now abandoned hometown previously a bustling city The ranger and avenger opted to check out the temple and found a man with a giant broadsword strapped to his back in strange clothes He was there to warn them that this timeline was doomed and they must leave it as soon as possible they have a means to do this I also opted to use this opportunity to illustrate to them that excessive time travelling was detrimental this gentleman was pretty messed up from the process Finally they took the bait and we ended the session at the crossroads where they can choose where in time they want to go The Retrospecticus So what could I have done differently Many things A word to the wise when introducing time travel have both an entry and an exit plan and give the players some real motivation to follow a plotline This could have easily been solved by a little more detailed planning on my part Also there were many opportunities for me to nudge the group along possibly even
