Today we are tying back to #178: Sharing the Spotlight (feat. Shareef Jackson) so that we can lift those mental weights! Let’s practice throwing a bright light on targeted players in our campaigns with some practice scenarios. We’ll provide the first scenario, but if you’re feeling up to it, help diversify the pool of players for future responders to pull from by adding your own scenario.
Which player from a scenario are you highlighting?
What would you introduce to the scenario to engage that player?
You do you! AKA anything else?
A dungeon chamber deep within an ancient building, rumored to be a tomb. As the party enters, torches magically flare to life, revealing a dias in the center of the room and three other passages out of it.
Liz plays a Berserker named Svetlana. Her favorite thing to do is engage in witty banter and deception, but in dungeon crawls and battles she tends to scout aggressively and just hit things hard. Almost no matter what the target’s AC, remaining health or counter attack capability, she uses Reckless Attack to get advantage.
Clive plays a Wizard named Joe. He meticulously prepares his exact spell list every long rest, agonizing over what spells he might need in the coming day of adventuring. He is quiet, but if things quiet down at the table or it’s his turn, he confidently presents a spell that solves the problem or a solution to the puzzle.
Dana plays a Druid named Angus. She really likes turning into different animals and spends most of her time in the Monster Manual trying to pick an animal that fits the current situation and frequently tries to convince you to approve a third-party animal from the internet. Sometimes they’re even balanced.
Mitch plays a Rogue/Sorcerer named Bob Ross. He’s quirky and definitely has a fun vision for his character, whose very name brings him glee. However, he is awkward and tends to tell jokes that fall flat and recede into the background of the group at some point in a session. When picking new spells on level up, he listens to Clive and often looks to him for battle strategy as well.
rorrik and I are excited to see what you all bring to the forums!
