I have never really seen
this as a player myself, but I have always been fascinated with the idea of
crafted items for roleplaying games.
It doesn’t need to be big
fancy time consuming things that the GM spend hours and hours on. Even smaller
things like a note, a wanted poster or things like that.
Now that I am preparing a
game for our multiple Dungeon masters project (see more about that here) I
decided to make a scroll.
It took like 15-20 minutes
in total to make it and it just adds so much to the whole gaming experience. Or
so I hope. And most of that time was spend on making the “magic seal” which is
What you need:
A blank piece of paper
2-3 spoonsful of coffee
Simply just pour the coffee
onto the paper and spread it all over with your fingers. Repeat on the other
side of the paper and let it dry. And done.
If you want to have some
printed text on your paper, I would suggest that you do that BEFORE you add the
coffee. Not sure how well printers and coffee mix.
I then decided to add a “magic
seal” to mine because it fits perfectly into my story (which I can’t reveal
until after the game has been played, sorry)
I have ideas for many more
quick and easy crafts so I hope my players find stuff like that fun.
And if not, then I will
still have fun making them J
I hope you are all doing
