Every now and again, I come up against a question in my campaign that I don’t have a good answer to. Usually it’s plot related, and something along the lines of “Why is XYZ thing here?” or “What would Evil McBadguy do now?”
The best thing I’ve found to get ideas and answers to those questions?
Take a walk.
And don’t bring anything to take notes with.
As you walk, just turn over the question. Don’t worry about forgetting anything – if it’s good, you’ll remember it.
Every time I’ve done this, I’ve come home with the answer. And a little exercise.
Now get out there and tell a story!
