Eric, thanks for jumping in and covering this installment!

Three to go to finish out the year. I think I will likely write one more before the year ends, probably the December 15th entry. Two more will fill up the schedule, November 15th and December 1st.

After that, I will likely relinquish the reigns to a new overlord, assuming someone is willing to take up the mantle.

Edit: Mantel?

Remember, there's lots of room for contributions that are less detailed or not so high minded. Think of this as advice to fellow GMs or talking points in a conversation with peers.

How to handle traps, benefits and drawbacks to flying, how to play divination, how might a starship floor plan be like a dungeon or vice versa, how to tastefully borrow cultures for a setting... lots of medium sized concepts would be great.

Start a new geeklist for the archives from 2019 on and a new signup thread for the same. Should work?

We all know you could write one a week until eternity falls, but yeah.

Anyone else? Save Eric from using up all his thoughts!

I did not really want to publish this one... it's just opinionated ranting that I wrote to vent out my annoyance... but it's 95% ready. I can make it less ranting and more ideas...

Sounds good to me. Then again, I kinda hate zombies to, so I'm an easy sell.

Not sure I can finish this until Saturday, as it will be a busy week for me.

An article about keeping foes fresh seems like a great idea to me.

Done. Now, this is not my proudest one. Most will find it already-done. I really wanted to show how, in my own eyes, the zombies fad contradicted every rule of verisimilitude.

In case there is another shortage, while doing this one I thought of another subject : Ten things you would not believe actually happened in History, and how to put them in your games.

If nothing else comes up.

I was going to try for a 15th submission, but haven't started it yet and am working ten to twelve hour days this week. If someone else has something, go for it!

I am writing mine, but I have already done several, so as Mulligans said, if anyone wants to jump in, feel free and I will post mine in 2019.

So far I have written on eight different subjects. I ruled against two more because, in the end, I could not gather enough reliable sources for one, and the other proved too small to provide rpg ideas. If anybody has fun dates to suggest, I will gladly check these.

My purpose is to list events that appear wild to us today, but were taken very seriously in their era. So, no hoaxes, no jokes. Just usual dealings pushed to their limits in a single historical event.
