Treasure Tables is in reruns from November 1st through December 9th. I’m writing a novel as part of National Novel Writing Month, and there’s no way I can write posts here while retaining my (questionable) sanity. In the meantime, enjoy this post from our archives.

(I know the intro and outtro are longer than this post, but it’s one of my favorite GMing tricks — I had to share it again.)

I’ve used this for years, and you’ll either love it or look at me funny when you hear it: anywhere that you need to frequently change numbers — say, hit points on a character sheet — just stick a piece of non-glossy clear tape over that spot, and then use a pencil to write in the number.

You can erase pencil from tape very easily, and it will hold up for years as long as you don’t accidentally poke holes in it. Enjoy!

Normally there’d be a discussion going on in the comments below, but due to time constraints I’ve turned off all comments during reruns — sorry about that! You can read the comments on the first-run version of this post, and if you need a GMing discussion fix, why not head on over to our GMing forums?
