    [Any WoD] What does game prep involve?

    It has been about forever since I last ran a Chronicles of Darkness campaign. So long ago, that I don't think I even have my notes for it anymore and forgot the process I went through. I think I just wrote a campaign pitch and what was going on and went from there. What do you do to prep for...

    We've had decades worth of video games by now and I'm not sure how many titles. While watching a playthrough of a game, I saw some familiar mechanics and game modes. Dancing, first person tank battles, being stationary and shooting at things and things shooting at you, and even a top down...
