Today’s is TT’s second birthday — the first post went up on July 8th, 2005 (Every Campaign is an Experiment ), but I didn’t start publicizing the site until July 11th, with Running a Campaign Website . Capped off by Monday’s ENnie nomination for Best Fan Site , it’s been a great year.
Last year, I celebrated TT’s first birthday by giving away a free PDF, How to Take Simple (Yet Badass) GM Notes , and I figured I’d go ahead and make that a tradition.
Over the years I’ve found that creating characters as a group is by far the best way to lay a solid foundation for a fun campaign. I thought it would be helpful to lay out a versatile, straightforward step-by-step system for creating a great party — hopefully this PDF will be useful to new and veteran GMs alike.
Many thanks for making TT’s second year even more of a blast than the first — you rock!
