Today’s question poses a few issues. The first instinct is to pick somewhere that would be awesome to visit. My concern with choosing an awesome location to visit. Would be that it would be distracting for the game and no game we would get done.
As much as I would like to say Hawaii or the Bahamas or New Zealand right in the middle of a hobbit house. I would worry is that nothing would happen at the table because everyone would be too busy wandering around and enjoying the scenery and being touristy.
But I still want to go somewhere, so where would I go? I think the best answer here might be a long arrange cruise on the boat with several amazing destinations. The is not an original concept as I know my friends that run Mace con also run a cruise con. I think I would have to take their Idea on this question.
I see the advantages of a cruise having positives. For several days at a time, the gamers would be together to play as often as we would like and have literally nowhere to go but the boat. I understand that there are plenty of the distractions on a boat. But knowing that we were heading to beautiful locations between games I think would keep the players actively participating in the game and not on boat activities.
Additionally, I feel that taking a cruise I would get the advantage of not only playing in more than one awesome location but several. As well as seeing and maybe even gaming and several of those awesome historical touristy locations. I will admit to maybe pocketing my D20 and getting a roll off inside a Pyramid. ( Only to lose that die eventually) BUT I DID IT ! Lastly seeing as cruises take some time to get from one location to another. I get the added bonus other than playing games I get to hang out with great friends for several days.
Lastly seeing as cruises take some time to get from one location to another. I get the added bonus other than playing games I get to hang out with great friends for several days. Often we don’t get enough time to just talk as gamers.Ironic when you think about we play a game where we talk for hours on end ! This would be a perfect opertunity.
So there you have it. I would pick a nice long boat trip for me and my group. Where would you go ?
I like the idea of playing games where you really shouldn’t or people playing who you thought wouldn’t. such as give each player a crash course in flying and a pilot’s license and then having them game over the radio with the GM sat in the air traffic control tower. Can you imagine what the pasengers would think if one of the players accidentally broadcast to the cabin rather than to the GM just as he asked “How many pixies can I see in the grotto?”
