Today is Friday the 13th. It's also a full moon. It's one of those fun, random dates that can mean a lot, or a little, depending on who you are. That's my question for you all today. Do you keep track of auspicious dates like today? Do you factor them into your game plans? If Friday the 13th is coming up, do you put something special into your session for it?
What about the holidays? Do you get christmasy around December, or spooky in October?
I try to when I can, but I won't nudge the game off a set course to do so. If we're not in a place where festivities can work and it's Christmas, than too bad my game doesn't get a Christmas that year. But if I can? Why not. It's fun to play into the mood and riff off what's going on in the real world.
But what about you?
