Faculty Meeting # 79 – Wrong side of the Tracks


Hello and welcome to Faculty Meetings: The general advice and discussion podcasts from The Rpg Academy. This is Faculty Meeting # 79 -Wrong side of the tracks

In this weeks episode Caleb and I go a bit negative. We talk about railroading – how it isn’t all bad and shouldn’t be avoided, but used sparingly and how players should sometimes just suck it up and play along for the good of the game.

    I enjoyed the episode and I really like the background segment. Michael mentioned a grove on an island for the sailor druid which got me thinking. What about a druid whose grove was turned into a ship and he became a sailor to stay with his grove? I thought that might be an interesting but angsty concept. Anyway, keep up the great work.

  1. Woo, I’m famous now! Aquaman for the win.

    That was an awesome episode, I know that I’ve bugged you on facebook and twitter about rail roading/open world, and that clears it up a lot. I think that I actually did a good job of having a nice focused start, let’s bring PC’s together scene, and give them a direction to think about, and then they could go off and do what they wanted. That was a very useful episode for thinking about that, and how to create a campaign that gives the players plenty of ideas of what they can do, without giving them nothing to point to, so they feel overwhelmed by the fact that they can do anything and choose anything.
