RPG-a-Day – Week Two: HOW… can players make a world seem real?


Players can help make the world seem real by having some bit of backstory that ties in with the world. Maybe your cousin has a sausage stand in the marketplace, or maybe one of your goals is to go fishing in the Nyr Dyv. It doesn’t have to be a novella, just a few things to tie in, or excuses to interact with NPCs in ways that aren’t “I stab him until he dies, then I take his stuff.” Even just learning the names of some local landmarks can help.
