      Storytelling for Dungeons and Dragons and other tabletop games

      Storytelling has been studied at length for books and cinema, but How to be a good DM? The specificity of being a writer or "Dungeon Master" for tabletop games is that the story is co-created directly with the players. Stories are often not linear, and at the flip of a dice you might be in a position where you'll need to reinvent part of your campaign on the spot. In this workshop we will talk about: 1 - Creating compelling overarching stories: the hero's journey 2 - Building a balanced session: the Fife (Fight/Investigation/Fun/Experience) model 3 - Creating engaging NPCs 4 - Building a core story VS dealing with the unexpected 5 - Supporting your players and helping them grow
