Up to day twenty-seven. On the home stretch. Let's look at today's question.
What Are Your Essential Tools for Good Gaming?
I'm not even sure how to answer this one. I mean, aside from the bare minimum you need to play the game (i.e. rules, players, dice if the game uses them, etc.), I'm not sure anything is essential. I have things that make me more comfortable, which vary from game to game.
If I had to say one modern "tool" that I use across multiple RPGs to good effect? Index cards.
