RPG a Day: Starting right

22. How does your group like to start a session?

Food_and_Tianxia(Alternate question from BrigadeCon’s list.  Today’s default question was “22: What are some random events in your games that keep happening?” but it didn’t inspire me. I’ve been gaming for too long, randomness has had a chance to show its true face!)

We pretty much always start with the news, the chit-chat, the general buzz friends make when they get together. You know it has to play itself out anyway, and it’s makes for a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. We often use the time to eat a pot luck meal or some snacks, read the recap from previous episodes, and so forth.
