Chaosium Interviews: Jason Durall on learning a new TTRPG setting fast


Recommended Posts

It can legitimately be said that the last truly original piece of human literature was mostly likely 'The Epic of Gilgamesh' and that there was undoubtedly some plagiarism going on there too. So if you're looking for inspiration for a scenario in any genre, you can do a lot worse than going back to history. ESPECIALLY first-person accounts of historical events told by someone who had no role in making the decisions that led to those events.

Every game system ever, no matter how 'original', was inspired by something from history and if you go back to those sources you'll best capture what the game author was trying to say with it.
