Podcast 113 – Pros and Cons of Oneshots April 9th, 2017 by Chris Winkle, Oren Ashkenazi and Wes Matlock Grab the dice and print out some character sheets – it’s time for an evening of roleplaying, or at least a podcast about an evening of roleplaying. This week we’re talking about oneshots and how they compare to longer games. We discuss everything you’ll ever need to know about this short form of roleplaying, and you’ll need at least a DC 20 Will-save to stop listening before the end. What kind of prep do you need for a oneshot? What systems should you use? What happens when the players riot and demand you turn the oneshot into a campaign? Listen in to find out.

I had no idea that it came from roleplaying… unless, maybe rpers got it from fandom. Reply to April April April 12, 2017 at 7:03 pm I meant to type “comprised of.” Reply to April Oren Ashkenazi April 13, 2017 at 5:06 pm Neat, I had no idea that was a fanfic term. Maybe roleplayers did borrow it, or maybe it was a case of parallel evolution! Reply to Oren Ashkenazi C. R. Rowenson April 13, 2017 at 8:22 pm Oneshots are also a bomb opportunity to work on your DM skills. The first game I ran was a oneshot, but I failed that’s what it was designed for at the time. Yeah… mistakes were made, but lessons were learned. Reply to C. R.
