I very much enjoyed running a game of FATE Accelerated Edition last night over skype.
A few things struck me about the experience.
First and foremoset, I’ve been out pretty long from being a game master. My improvisational skills were rusty last night. Still, I pulled off a pretty good bait and switch opening after throwing out the wrong initial hook.
Let me tell you, it’s pretty exhausting to run a game session with virtually no combat in it, especially when one needs to be prepared for combat to occur at any point for almost the whole time.
I enjoyed the effort immensely. That enjoyment of effort is a great sign for me. After all, it takes effort to work or play. I need to get more accustomed to putting forth more effort than I have in the recent past.
Time to focus. Have a great day, everyone!
