I highly recommend The Monologue Mechanic.

When I play an RPG like Dungeons and Dragons, I’m all about the RP. I’ve had amazingly satisfying play sessions where hardly any dice were rolled and zero combat. These games tend to be all about interactions between our player characters, the NPC and each other, focusing on the ramifications of the combat that has taken place and events we have found ourselves entangled in.

The Monologue Mechanic will suit my play style perfectly. The guide outlines not only how to judge the effectiveness of players ability to listen to a monologue, but also how to write a good monologue and when and how to implement a monologue. And above all else it illustrates what can be gained by using this mechanic. The accompanying fame system give the players concrete befits for letting the villain spout off about their plans as well as giving the GM the tools to track all of this in an easy to use and streamlined manner.

Richard does this with a combination of clear instructions and illuminating example. The text in this guide goes into a good deal of details on each part of the mechanic without being a slog to read through. The examples are easy to follow and do great job of show exactly how implement this system. They’re entertaining, a rarity when it comes to examples. This guide is a fun read.

I can’t wait to incorporate these rules and concepts into the next game I run. Also as a fiction writer, I will definitely turn to this guide the next time one of my villains needs to pontificate about their evil plans.

The monologue mechanic has changed the way I think about my villains. Rich has a talent of breaking down the details in a game and seeing clear ways they can improve. The Monologue Mechanic provides a nice fix for the inclination to hack n' slash your way to victory. Quite a number of recent encounters would have gone quite differently - and for the better - using the rules herein. I'm looking forward to implementing these in my upcoming campaign!
