—Ask The Bellhop—
Today’s topic comes from Nate Parker, who tweeted to ask:
I was hoping I could twist your arm into doing a write-up or podcast episode covering how to run a good RPG session for a gaming event (con/public event/etc.). I feel like it is different from regular sessions you have with known players, and I would love to hear some experienced people talk about it.
