    Pay What You Want (But Please Pay Something!)

    I have 2 products as PWYW and the rest I have set a price. My first attempt at PWYW was near the beginning and it hasn't done that well with donations--in fact, after 3 years, I'm still in the hole from creating it. I cringe when I look at it though as I have learned a lot more about layout...

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    The timeline doesn't necessarily need to be connected to just the primary story arc. It can be connected to when a certain Situation/Side Quest might happen or be available, etc. Some Situations are tied to the story arc, while others are just side quests...but some of the side quests may...

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    At least for me...Short answer...YES! Shameless plug--this is what I did for my City of Vermilion adventure (kickstarter is live right now). For Vermilion, I have a story arc in place--but this is where the importance of the timeline takes place. Things will happen with the story in the...

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    Absolutely agree! You can always try to stick B, D, and G in some other dungeon/adventure in the future...or not.

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    Bolded #1: I've experienced that with newer players in a sandbox setting. I am totally assuming here, which can lead one to trouble, but I think I could see that with 5e players as the adventures seem to follow more of a storyline? So having too many options might give them pause for the best...

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    I think there is a lot of truth to this. However, I would never 'require' a player to do anything--I would read the player during play and if the character has goals or hidden agendas, then I add wood to that creative fire. This is how my group plays...it's great! Sometimes it can lead to inner...

    Worlds of Design: The Tyranny and Freedom of Player Agency

    I think that's fixed with an array of adventure hooks--some can be a clear path, some can just be vague rumors. But I agree, it depends on what sort of campaign is being run.
