Creating A Group Template[edit | edit source]

Summary[edit | edit source]

Aired on 22, May, 2006

For the next several episodes, we'll be using a mock Shadowrun game to walk you through the do's and don'ts of roleplaying games. In this podcast, we talk about the first step a group should take when starting a game: creating a group template. We explain what group templates are, why to build one, and how to make them effective.

Before digging into that, we take a look back at our first gaming experiences, followed by a discussion about gaming in hobby shops and other public places. There's also a brief chat about the changing definition of what's "dorky" and a review of Shadowrun's previous editions.
