Fantastic tool for Keepers and Players alike

We're born, go to school, get a job, and die. Sometimes the monotony is broken by going mad somewhere in between. Rules, ideas, examples... All are welcome here.

Fantastic tool for Keepers and Players alike

Post by TheStoryteller » Mon Sep 29, 2014 12:06 pm

Hey all, Storyteller here with a quick resource that is pretty awesome. Thought everyone should know about http://writingexercises.co.uk/index.php. This site has generators for players, such as Character Job/Occupation Generator, or Character Traits generator. It also includes resources for the Keeper as well: a Town Name Generator, Plot Generator, and a Scenario Generator. I believe my favorite is the "Take Three Nouns" page. But overall, it is a really useful tool, and if anybody tries it out, post here and let me know what you get. 8-)

No problem. Just saw it and thought Keepers everywhere could really use it. And sorry for the long delay, I've been on a binge brainstorming session. I've decided to start seriously putting pen to paper on some scenarios and source books I want to write. I have a TON of ideas, and I'm super-confident in the awesomeness of each one. I'm just going to write and see what comes out, and pitch things as I finish.

Regards,

P.S. Any chance we could add that link to the Card Catalog on the podcast? Thanks guys for what you all do.

It's already queued up. I added it to last episode's show notes, but we covered Cory's period game markers first, so I carried it over for next show. Thanks again for sharing it!

No problem guys. If I come across any other good resources, I'll let you know. How do you prefer suggestions be delivered? The only method I haven't used yet is the Voicemail or Speakpipe.

Thanks,
-John

P.S. I just thought of this, but how long does the update take for Sponsor badges on the forum? Just curious, so no rush. Keep on doing what you guys do. 8-)

If you send an email, it tends to get priority over forum posts as far as being mentioned on the show, so that was a good move. If you send a voicemail or Speakpipe, it gets the highest priority because we like to hear other voices on the show. I'll find out about badges.

I caught the new episode with this suggestion. Awesome work as always, I'm greatly impressed. Next time I'll use the voice options to submit things. 8-) As for the badges, no rush. I mostly donated because I want to help fund the show. If I had an endless supply of disposable income, I'd donate it here too.
