Misadventure Wednesday

Running a One-Shot adventure of a short-form story can be challenging, and a lot of fun.

Here you will find a guide on preparing and running a short-form TTRPG and a Submission form to book a Misadventure Wednesday table 

Upcoming Misadventures

    St Aidan's Hall, 20 Williamson Ave, Strathmore VIC 3041, Australia
    In a dodgy inn that seemed to groan under the weight of its own dodgy reputation, you're handed a quest that sounds more like a bad joke than a noble adventure. One week's tory for five players.

    St Aidan's Hall, 20 Williamson Ave, Strathmore VIC 3041, Australia
    FAILURE IS AN OPTION… As dignitaries crowd in the foyer, stormclouds gather above the gothic facade of Varkenbluff Museum. Across the street, a cloaked figure watches with deep foreboding, convinced that only she understands the terrible danger soon to be borne upon the city.

Short-Form RPG Guide

  1. Pre-Generated Characters:
    Use ready-made characters to jump straight into the action, ensuring immediate engagement without extensive character development.  Supply a couple more characters, ie. 8 chatcters for 6 players.

  2. Single Theme:
    Focus on one central theme or quest to keep the story cohesive and direct, avoiding complex subplots that can't be resolved quickly.

  3. Straightforward Plot:
    Design a simple, engaging plot with clear objectives for each session, leading to a satisfying conclusion within the limited timeframe.

  4. Action and Momentum:
    Keep the game moving with action-packed scenes and challenges, ensuring a fast pace to fit the short campaign structure.

  5. Constrained Setting:
    Set your adventure in a few well-defined locations to enhance depth without needing extensive world-building.

  6. Clear Conclusion:
    Plan a definitive ending that can be realistically achieved, providing a sense of closure and accomplishment for the players.
