RPGaDay 2020 Day 6 – “Forest” #RPGADAY2020

The prompt for today is “Forest”…

Shadowrun isn’t a system I typically think of forests for… unless you use the adage of the “concrete jungle”.  So, my feelings on forests will need to stem from my 7th Sea experience.  Forests can convey so much about a scene.  Bright, warm and full of life… dark and oppressive… musty, rotting and old.  Each of these can describe the same thing (namely, a forest) and yet the experience you feel when travelling through these environments are very different.  The way you describe an environment does a lot to colour a player’s perspective of the scene you describe.  There are nearly as many personalities of forest as there are people, so set the scene for your players.  Talk about as many senses as you can to really frame your environment.  No matter what your forest may be, make it vivid and colourful… as a GM, your environment is a prominent NPC.  Make it memorable.
