I have read on some blogs that the author considers it a faux pas to put a recap of their role-playing sessions on their blog. That is their choice and I respect that.
If you follow my rinky dink blog at all you know I post my recaps. I’m also an avid reader of other people’s recaps.
Oh So Many Words.. Why?
I read other gaming groups recaps for several reasons.
1) I don’t get to game as much as I would like and this is a way for me to live vicariously through another group’s excitement.
2) To see how other groups react to situations and challenges.
3) To possibly learn something new from my fellow GMs and players.
4) For inspiration.
There is much to be garnered and enjoyed from session recaps. I support people and thank them for taking the time to type up their adventures for others to enjoy.
Many times I feel it is a thankless job, because not many people comment on the blog to let the author know that they have enjoyed the stories.
How do you feel about session recaps? Are there any in particular that you enjoy?
Here are a few recaps that I am currently reading:
Dead Reign– A zombie apocalypse game
Honor Among Thieves– A Serenity game.
The Melker Chronicles– A Fantasy game (4e I believe).
Reavers on the Seas of Fate– A Pirate Pathfinder Game. This site has a TON of awesome session recaps for other games as well!
Chatty DM has some awesome session recaps! You’ll have to do some back tracking though and sift through his extensive blog.
