Friends! I'm polling you for clever ideas and suggestions.
I've been asked to run a one-shot for a couple of gamers who've never had a chance to play in a game together.
They are "trad" gamers, as far as I know (I think they only play D&D5E), and fairly hardcore about it. They have a regular ongoing D&D campaign. I think they're pretty willing to try something different in this case, however.
We are going to be able to spend a long evening together, so we potentially have up to 5-6 hours. I *may* be able to get some setup/info from them beforehand, but not very much.
What would be really fun, in your opinion? What game would you run?
Do you have a fictional scenario in mind?
How do you set things up?
Any and all ideas are welcome. Feel free to brainstorm here!
