Episode 22 Compensation

April 11th, 2010

Being a fringeworthy explorer is a great honor but it gets old after the mellor are chewing at your boot.  We discuss monetary and intangible rewards that can be given to the characters to keep them and their players interested in the campaign.  Also we discuss how a detailed backstory or player created character motivations helps the gm and the other players to trigger events that interest the characters.
