Today’s Hook: GM’s Choice! And this time the choice was to delve into one of America’s most potent modern mythologies… the Conspiracy Theory.
This week boasted a number of interesting, fun, and (likely quite) memorable moments, and the seeds of a number of new things have perhaps been planted as well…
The idea behind this scenario was to use the Adventure Hook show as a platform for a sort of predictive programming… and through the lens of an RPG campaign world that was comprised of all of the most bizarre conspiracy theories ever claimed… manage to demonstrate how all of them still logically connect.
This week I was also pleased to be invited to GM a game at the RPG Baltimore gaming convention being held next weekend. I’ve been teasing Jenny about running a session for her concerning her character’s initiation into the Cult of the Spire, and so the one-shot I’m putting together will play through that very scenario, but with the help of other thinking players driving it (which will feel way more authentic for what that stuff is all about).
We’ll actually see two New Moons before this month is out, and today even boasted a solar eclipse (albeit in South America). This month of darkness promises the chance to hit the reset button on everything… which isn’t necessarily a good thing… but perhaps a necessary one.
