Sometimes the players in an RPG are so engrossed in the story, NPC's and game world that they can't wait for the next session. Other times they can't wait for it to end. How do you keep them hooked? This seminar will explore the reasons for this interesting dynamic. We will discuss what engages players and what turns them off. Come find out how a single NPC can make the difference between player excitement and bored to tears monotony. How DO you keep your players 'on the hook'? Share your own secrets and learn from the tricks others have used. -- The GM's Workshop series is always interactive. The seminar wall between presenter and participants is torn down as we explore these topics together. With the speaker acting as moderator and guide through the topics, you are sure to learn, laugh, participate, and have a great time.
