Each of my sessions typically starts with me summarizing the events of the previous session. It’s a nice lead-in that gets everyone’s mind back into events. When there is a long stretch of time between sessions, I recap back to the beginning with emphasis on the points that are still important to the current events.
Recently my wife and I went through an extremely busy summer (that included moving 1200 km and starting a new job), so we went a couple of months without playing. While preparing for game (Halls of Gathering), one of my players suggested that I do a recorded summary beforehand so that we could be prepared to start as soon as we were all online. This gave me an interesting idea.
I decided to record the recap from the perspective of a variety of the characters the players have interacted. So I recorded a series of short clips each telling a portion of the story from a different perspective. The clips posted below for your entertainment! They were recorded off the cuff, so the pacing is a little broken but I hope you enjoy.
Recorded Summary for The Collected
Hope you enjoyed the listen!
