Charming and Open 2

Our adventure through the December 2017 Charming and Open event is coming closer and closer to the end! Tonight, let’s revisit this excellent submission from Art of Redress all about an anticipated game announcement for 2018. If you missed it back during the event or simply want to revisit this enjoyable community event submission, be sure to check it out and give Art of Redress a follow!

Art of Redress

At the start of December, I asked to be part of Adventure Rules’ event ‘Charming and Open.’ His explanation of the event is as follows;

“Charming and Open is inspired by a move of the same name in the tabletop RPG Dungeon World. In the game, it allows a character to ask a direct question and get an honest answer, but there’s a catch – in speaking openly enough to ask that question, they give the target the opportunity to ask a question on the same terms. This idea of an open exchange of questions to which both parties must give an honest answer is the basis of the community event”

So, I asked him what his redress would be – was there a game he wanted to complete but had missed out on?

The question posed to me was;

“What are your dream game announcements for 2018, the ones…

A Charming and Open Idea: My New Ride

For this morning’s edition of Adventure Rules Remastered, we’re revisiting a great Charming and Open submission by The Gaming Diaries all about the video game vehicle she’d want to have in real life. I loved the practical considerations she included and her ultimate conclusion is quite interesting. You’ll definitely want to check this one out!

The Gaming Diaries

Robert Ian Shepard over at Adventure Rules posted a Charming and Open community event. The idea is that you can ask him a question about video games, tabletops or blogging, and this question will be answered in a blog post. In return, if you choose to accept it, he will ask a question which you can answer in a blog post. This sounded fun and I eventually thought of a question… although I asked one that was asked the first time this event was run. I really should have checked first (sorry)! However, as my question was quite open he decided he could answer it again with a different response. So my question was “If you could take a holiday in any gaming location where would you choose to go and how would you spend your holiday there?”. In return I have been asked “If you could choose one mode…

Charming and Open – Yeah, I’m Evil, What Of It?

It’s the weekend, which means it’s time for some more Adventure Rules Remastered! I’ll be sharing more posts from the December Charming and Open event, and this one was submitted by Chris at Overthinker Y. It’s all about what he would be like if he was a villain, which is an interesting coincidence given his recent participation in Blogger Blitz: Black Sheep. Go check it out and see his evil plans come to fruition!

OverThinker Y

The cool and collaborative Ian of Adventure Rules has just started up an event about getting lots of people to ask each other questions, and then… well, answer them. It’s called Charming and Open, and you can read about it (and I think you can still enter some questions, if you’re game) on Ian’s blog here. The essence of the thing is that lots of bloggers are encouraged to get involved, get to know one another, and generally spread the love, which is always nice and worth doing.

I’ve given Ian this zinger of a two-parter, which I’m sure he’ll have a brilliant answer for: ‘Which gaming character would you least likely to meet down a dark alley, and which would you most like to have by your side to protect you if you did happen to run into them?’

In return, he’s two-partered right back at me: ‘if…

Master Xehanort in Blogger Blitz Round 2: Breaking the Broker

OverThinker Y

It’s time for a semifinal match, y’all! I am astonished to find myself here, but let’s just dive in, shall we? Our brief is as follows:

In the vastness of the universe, there exists a being known as the Shadow Broker. A powerful and mysterious alien creature, the Broker deals in secret knowledge and bears secrets too powerful for the mortal world. Among the many things the Broker knows, the most coveted secret of all is the knowledge of affordable real estate. Who among us has never thought, “I wish a scary alien would help ME find a modest home in a safe neighborhood!”? It is this very thought that spurns the villains to action in this semifinal event.

In this event, your sponsored villain is nearing the end of their lease and is ready to move into the frightening world of home ownership. But in this economy, it’s impossible…
