Episode Six: Plot Hooks and Misdirection

This episode is all about using plot hooks in play, as well as combining them with misdirection. We discuss what not to do as well as talking about some of our techniques for creating and maintaining plot hooks.

If you think we should add anything, or want us to clarify something shoot us an email, post it on the Forums, Facebook, or Twitter.

Favorite Games of the Week

The Lost City of Barakus

We had an excellent session of Dresden Files RPG, as well as a fulfilling fight in Remnants. Both are excellent games, and going swimmingly!


The support button is not working, and we don’t know why. There are big changes coming up on our end, and some cool stuff is in the works for you, too!

This is the first episode we have ever recorded that does not mention Shard.

Please “reccommend” us on RPGpodcasts!

    While I will accept that you did not mention Shard in the episode you did mention it in the episode write up….so technically you did mention Shard. Just sayin’. Love the pod cast, keep it coming and always take it to 11!
