How to Improvise an Adventure with the 5 Whys

Brenda Cass

In this quick video I give a tutorial on my own personal RPG improvisation technique. This is my go to trick when my players throw me a curve ball or when I feel like playing a game but haven't prepared anything in advance. I find that it works in all situations and does not require a whole ton of practice, and so makes for a great GM tool.

If you have your own improv techniques I'd love to hear about them in the comments.
