Yesterday we role played, yeah I try to get some role-playing in every weekend like the good geek I am, but yesterday we really role played. Our complete group has met twice now for a Castles and Crusades game I'm DMing and running Keep on the Borderlands for. In the first character creation session where I badly fumbled my explanation of aspects (from the FATE, or DFRPG I'm still reading), I did manage to plant the seed of aspects in the minds of the group. Yesterday we worked through an aspect work sheet for their characters. I had given them a heads up via email Friday with a couple of prompts, and they ran with it, I read a couple of paragraphs from DFRPG on high concepts, and troubles once they understood I mostly sat at the table asking clarifying questions.
An hour and a half later we started the game. The group encountered the spiders, (one of our players really doesn't like spiders, however his character was okay) which I had worked in a a threat to the keeps food supply; therefor earning the group a bit of good will form some at the keep. Sorry Christian I forgot to make a photo of the game mat for you. The rest of the evening was spent exploring the Keep and surrounding Hamlet which I shamelessly stole from Bigby's Left Hand.
