The Inspiration Zine

Zine Quest 2 is currently underway. I admit, I haven't really been paying attention to what's on offer. I did get a preview of A Visitor's Guide to the Rainy City, and I can definitely recommend checking it out.

I don't have anything of my own to promote for Zine Quest 2 as I don't really feel comfortable with Kickstarter for my projects, but in the old spirit of free content I do want to offer you a free zine: The Inspiration Zine

The Inspiration Zine presents four different ways to use the inspiration mechanics in 5e D&D:

  • Blood Opera Inspiration. Rules for using inspiration to add bloody interpersonal drama to your game.
  • Flashback Inspiration. Rules for using inspiration to account for prior actions, experiences, and preparations.
  • Momentous Events Inspiration. Rules for using inspiration to establish a deeper connection between character development and the momentous events that unfold as you play.
  • Tarot Storytelling Inspiration. Rules for using inspiration to reveal more about their characters’ pasts.

The Inspiration Zine is available in two formats:
Screen format pdf
Print format pdf 

To print your own physical copy of the zine, print the second pdf as double-sided (duplex), set to flip on the short edge. This will give you two double-sided pages to fold in half, for eight total pages that flow in order when assembled.

  1. Thank you.
    We ended up using the inspiration the other way around: any time the player can get inspiration to use with dice but later had to 'repay' for it with something interesting: a story, a connection, interesting action, etc.

    1. You're welcome.

      I like your system too...sort of "paying it forward."
