Long-Term Narrative Design in RPG Real-Play Podcasts

Look at how GMs in Real-Play RPG podcasts go about presenting their long-term narratives. Do they present a sandbox world and let the players improvise? Do they railroad to hit more traditional story beats for the listeners? What’s most effective?

  • It think also you need to discuss the background work of the GM from a narrative standpoint. For example, looking at what those GMs have identified themselves as preparation and development - do they use modules or write their own? do they create NPCs or build these off predeveloped characters? Also looking at the framework of their game could be interesting - how did they select the current narrative? was it in conjunction with players? had they run this before? There are many different avenues to explore. – SaraiMW 4 years ago
