Smallville: Party Conflict

I got a message on Obsidian Portal today from a user called DissenterKnight. He found my Gotham Nights page and wrote to me. I’ve included his message so you can see what he said. I wrote a pretty lengthy response and I wanted to share it with all of you too. I talk a bit about getting into Smallville (a story I’m sure you’re all very familiar with), a bit about party-conflict in gaming, and the strengths of Smallville. I also do some shameless promotions for good measure. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.

NPC Creation

I got an e-mail from a listener (Neal Dalton, to be specific) about BS! Episode 112 and my comments on how I make NPCs. Well, who am I not to give our listeners what they request? After the break you can read my method of turning NPC creation over to your players.

Shackles of Y’ha-nthlei (• to •••••)

I do a lot of flavor/lite-mechanics conversion stuff when I’m gaming. I think we all do. This is one of those. A re-working of Rites of Denial. This isn’t an original work, just a couple little changes and a new flavor.
