I'm going to teach a spring course at my university devoted to the history and theory of RPGs. Cool, eh?
Each class will consist of lectures and a tutorial. I plan on using the tutorial to introduce students to old school character generation,(very basic) random senario generation, and then finally play.
Have you come across any materials on blogs, forums, or websites that layout either character generation (including character development) or basic encounters for beginners? I need materials that assume no prior knowledge.
I know there's stuff out there, it's just a matter of finding the right introductory materials.
