Reeks of Jedi
My current whim. Then I get over it but I’m stuck halfway into a campaign.
Well, there’s 2 factors that are key:If your bookshelves and hard drives are anything like mine you have a ton of options on what you'd like to run. Sure some stuff you bought just for inspiration but when staring New Campaign time in the mouth how do you decide what to run?
I find myself in that situation currently. I can't end my PF2 Abomination Vaults game until I have something else ready to go. I'm curious how YOU make that decision.
I'm a fairly service-oriented GM. If my players told me they strongly wanted to play a particular game, that'd be what I run.
They never do that though.
That's what I have done in the past on a group by group basis - presented 3 or 4 options, with some pulled-from-Pinterest images, and asked for them to vote and veto.So, I have a conversation with my players, sometimes with a survey, to find out what genre and playstyle they want, and I look at my shelves and choose what I want that fits the player's desires.
