November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and I strongly recommend you all give it a try, at least once. For those of you more interested in games than novels, though, why not use November as your very own National Game Design Month (NaGa DeMon). Commit to creating, writing and playing (at least once) a boardgame, wargame or RPG of your own. Start your planning now, think about what your game might be about, what system you might use and how many pages / words you are going to aim for. I wouldn’t put a page/word limit, but would recommend aiming for a complete game, with some nod to setting, rules for character creation, action resolution and advancement. Check out Rob Lang’s awesome Guide To Organsing Your RPG for ideas on what to include and how to, well, organise it all. You can also check out the Stockade for ideas, links and info on creating your own game.
