My my my, we just loooove to hear ourselves don't we?
Ptolus has a newspaper with current events you can throw at the players. Truth to be told, other than when the barbarian army invaded, our party has always been to busy to really do anything about the stories we read. It hurts to see the DM shaking his head behind the screen as we let another excellent hook wiz right over our headsIf the DM wants to “play” a city they need the equivalent of a newspaper no one else ever gets to read, updated about as regularly.
Nice metaphor!Cities are fly fishing the players. Maybe they never bite. But they feel the river flowing.
