Merry Christmas from Treasure Tables!

Last year’s Christmas post was about the worst Dungeon Master ever; this year, it’s about action scenes. Over on ars ludi, Ben Robbins (of Lame Mage Productions) lays out the anatomy of an action scene.

His approach involves a simple seven-part framework for designing an action scene, built with supers in mind but useful in other genres as well. Ben also offers a free adventure that makes use of his approach, Dr. Null: Battle on the Bay Bridge.

Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, I hope your day is a fabulous one. Eat well, spend time with friends and family, and I’ll see you tomorrow.
