Tabletop RPG Catch All

Minotaar shared this with me and I think it is worth sharing with others. The idea of using a one-shot mid-campaign to give players an added perspective to the world has a lot of promise for world building and NPC background, but also potentially for player backstory. As it is a one-shot, you can easily tell a Rogue One type story where they all die but are part of a bigger endeavor in the past that has implications on the current campaign. Could work for the full party or on an evening where a couple players are missing.

That's something I've been doing in my campaign, and I highly recommend it.

The first time the party had just found a clue pointing them towards a lost treasure hoard, so I ran a one-shot (actually ended up being a 3-shot, I greatly underestimate how long it takes my players to do anything) which set up how the treasure came to be there. That adventure had a pretty sinister end, with all of their characters getting either killed or enthralled by a cursed artifact, so when the main party finally went after the treasure I was able to use their one-shot characters as villains.

More recently, I ran another 3-shot set much further in the past, to flesh out a different region of the world and to help introduce an evil organization that has been active in the world for a long time.

Has anyone run across a "Bachelor/Bachelorette" style TTRPG?

The reason I'm asking is that my DnD group got this silly idea in their head to do a version of The Bachelor where a Dragon is the creature looking for love and a bunch of monsters are the contestants. I was wondering if there was already a game out there I could draw rules from and just adapt to this scenario. Otherwise I may just have to create one.

In fact a friend of mine wrote one that is available for FREE: True Love Match

It's been run at a few conventions locally, with great drama and emotion from what I heard (I did not play it myself).

Very interesting! Thanks so much! I may tinker with this a bit and see if I come up with anything
