Adventure April Resources
Hi everyone!With Adventure April in full swing, there's some questions that come up several times and great advice from people in the wonderful World Anvil discord. I've gathered things here to make it easy to people to find. I'm also putting some example one-shot adventures here; there's no better inspiration for figuring out your one-shot formatting than from another anvilite who has done so beautifully.
For heists, I recommend the Blades in the Dark system, it's 10/10 very good!
The use of a ticking timer of some kind is effective at keeping things going.
Pre-generated character is a very good idea for one-shots. They let you know exactly what the PCs can do, and players are less attached for when things explode.
Combat is easily the most time-consuming part of many systems. Limiting them to just a couple can be a good idea.
