Looking For Tools to Teach the Novice DM "Adventure Design"
Sometimes my blog topics take off on tangents, whether in the comments section, a side conversation on G+ or spawned threads on forums. Recently, the whole idea of using published adventures has generated a side conversation of "why not create your own?"
The answer to that, for me at least, is time. Writing a usable adventure takes time I do not have. So I buy and use and modify published adventures.
It does raise a question for me - is there a good resource for the novice DM to refer to when it comes to designing adventures?
It might not even be an OSR / D&D resource - good adventure design is pretty much independent of rules.
So, cough up your secrets. Dig the dusty tomes off your bookshelf. Lets find our "Adventure Design for Dummies" books ;)
