But…I wanna play. I was looking over the little ugly map scrawled in red pen in my gaming note-pad from the last post and really wanted to make up a character, same as Aaron’s – 3 lifepaths. I thought about a sorcerer’s apprentice of some kind or maybe a squire of Malat but then Soren Guilder sprang into my head, fully formed, ready to go. There’s something almost Dickensian about him.
I reckon me and Aaron could go back and forth if we should play this game. There is no reason why a one-on-one RPG session can’t have each person picking up the player and GM role, maybe even switching up a few times a game if it doesn’t murder the pacing.
