I posted the other day about speeding up in-town logistics largely aimed at what the players need to do.
I have some of my own work to do, and I'm getting on with it.
- emailing people about research requests, special orders, and XP early. As in today, weeks out from next game day. If they need to get in their requests, so do I.
- following up on previous requests for information and pricing.
- ensuring the players and I are on the same page about what they want for the next game.
- start writing the rumors earlier.
Not a big list, for sure. But I do tend to put away my Felltower stuff after the game, write the summary, and then leave it sitting for weeks until 2-3 days out from game day. Then I start to do my pre-game prep. I need to get on that faster, as the players really held up their end of the "let's speed this up" bargain.
