Prop Based Games

So, how often do you use props in your game? Do you find it worthwhile? Does it add that little extra something to make things special? Personally some of my favorite materials were from the Dungeons and Dragons old adventure box sets. You got a mega adventure and a bunch of nifty little handouts. I also have other box sets or books with a bunch of materials as well. I just love it, in fact I eat it all up. I remember a campaign we played using the Dark Matter setting. We would have case files arranged by Curtis ahead of time of about 3 cases each session which were investigations we could pick from. Now a folder and documents may not seem thrilling to some but I can tell you from being there that we just loved it. It was something tangible that we could hold, feel and keep if we wanted too. In fact that is one of those things that I regret is not keeping my hands on a lot of our notes and handouts from back in the days.

Now what got me talking about all this is because since getting more and more involved at school, I have hit some major RPG withdrawal but I want to do something wanted by my buddies but something that is just going  to be fun to prepare for and run for myself. But I also want it to be special. Unfortunately since I haven’t sent anything out yet, I can’t divulge too much because these vultures with try to get what info they can early but as I send things out I will detail how I go about things and post them on the site. I think this is going to be really special and that’s a feeling I have missed for a long time. So stay tuned folks, good things coming. But till then, give us some stories of how props ay have heightened your gaming sessions. Maybe even less us know if your pro or con towards props.

Was recruited back in the first year of high school to play this odd game called Dungeons & Dragons by his friends who would become his family. Tending more towards darker themed games like Call of Cthulhu, Ravenloft, Gemini and other such titles; he has also ventured into other genres as his interest has developed. If there is something cool to play out there, he will play it even if it hurts his brain.
