Modified Streaming Schedule

Due to some technical issues with the games and streaming software I’ve had to modify the games that I am running on HERE.

Game – Star Trek Online

This week I want share with you a breakthrough I stumbled upon for speeding up my game prep. The secret to this faster prep routine was to abandon writing the prose accounts of each session. It was a shame to lose this feature of our campaign, but I was struggling for time, and something had to go. Subsequently, my prep became so much quicker...
