We held a writing evening for the four DMs in our group, and it was great fun. To set up, we each wrote 3-5 suggestions for each of the boxes labelled

  • Everything was fine until…
  • And that’s why we have to…
  • At the…
  • And also…

We then each drew a slip of paper from each box and had to write an adventure based on the prompts. We also drew a sample set before we started writing, and this is the random adventure prompt we came up with:

Everything was fine until the king decided to kill every child in the land. And that’s why we have to find the lost prince at the university of broken dreams. And also, the party will be shrunk to Tiny size in the first encounter.

The more people you have playing the better, since that will make for a greater variety of imaginations and styles. We highly recommend this as an activity, as it generates adventure ideas you’d never come up with on your own while just sitting at your computer. We made an evening out of it with snacks and drinks, and did the activity twice over. It was heaps of fun and we all suddenly have tons of exciting content to run over the next year or two.

To Write Love on Her Arms (@twloha)

To Write Love on Her Arms started as a Myspace post. Since it took off, they’ve donated more than $1.5 million to treatment and recovery programs, granting funding to 73 different organizations and counseling practices. They have a pretty good repository for finding help, with listings easily found either by location or reason you’re seeking help.

When it comes to making the world a better, more understanding place for mental health, NAMI (nearly) does it all. Across the US they educate to make sure people are getting the help they need, they advocate for public policy, and they listen. You can reach the NAMIHelpLine at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or info@nami.org.

It Gets Better (@itgetsbetterproject)

It Gets Better Project wants to create and inspire change for LGBTQ+ youth. While they do suggest hotlines to call for immediate help (like The Trevor Project), their primary objective is to spread the message that, well, it gets better.

If you don’t live in the US, you may haven noticed most of these are US-based resources. Don’t worry. We have you covered too.

LazyTown in different languages

Inspired by @malteseboy​ ‘s Peppa Pig in different languages

Originally posted by robbieglaepur

LazyTown, meme show supreme, is a good show to use for practice! The show has been dubbed into nearly 32 languages, according to the Wikipedia, so there should be something for everyone. It is faster than Peppa Pig and I’d recommend it mostly to people at B1/B2 level, but it can be good just to let the language wash over you for the immersion. It’s use of songs are quite nice breaks between dialogue too. There is also generally a lot of it free on YouTube, which is nice 

The for Icelandic learners there are also the original stage plays

I’ve been having great success using an Emotion Wheel to create NPCs. (by  Higgs_Bosun)

To quote the reddit post:

“An emotion wheel is a tool for building emotional language. It often ends up looking like a color wheel, with broader base emotions at the center, and then more specific, nuanced emotions near the periphery. [Above] is an example of what one looks like.

I first came across this during a counselling session a few months ago, and had it laying out while prepping for D&D. I was looking at a table of NPC emotions, and they were all very close to the center. I checked out the wheel, and updated my existing NPCs. For example: Instead of simply an angry bartender, I now had a bitter and violated angry bartender. It gave me a lot more to play on, reasons for the anger, ideas for ways my players could provoke the anger, but also ways in which they could win the trust of the bartender.

It was ideal. It was easier for me to express the bartender’s emotions to the players, and rather than him simply being angry for no reason, he was simmering and grumbling, but he only truly became angry when someone tried to take advantage of him. And then it became serious, fast.

If you’re having difficulty breathing life into your characters, and you feel like the happy wandering salesman or the sad faerie queen don’t give you enough, find an emotion wheel, and give those feelings some depth.

Anyone else found useful tools like this?”

These are the CAS CC I always use. The great thing is that most of them, if not all are compatible with all ages! I’ve updated my resources page to look like this as well for future reference. (:

I’ve made a collection of documentaries, lectures and other videos I’ve watched about Srebrenica

Documentaries

Channels

Lectures

(the last two are important for understanding how the UN abandoned Srebrenica and contributed to the massacre) 

Drone footage of Potočari from above, just so you can see how the Memorial Center now looks. 

Bosnian only, no translation

And here is a lengthy but detailed and well written text on why a documentary called “A town betrayed” is really not a good source to learn about what happend in Srebrenica. 

This is in addition to a list I already made with documentaries about the war in Bosnia in general.

And there are also posts about Višegrad and Prijedor separately.
