Zak asked for everyone’s ideas late Friday night and said he’d put them all in the sandbox. I posted a short paragraph about the Ettin I’d retooled a while back. Lo and behold, it turned out to be the big combat of the session. To be clear, it was his interpretation of my short idea that took them on, not any monster of my own devising.
Nonetheless, I post this because I find it gratifying that someone had fun with one of my ideas and specifically Zak and his crew. It was this post on Zak’s blog that inspired me to start writing my ideas down for you (all three of you). His posts exemplify the kind of creativity and fresh thinking about the game that I hope to develop by doing this.
