Welcome to the sixteenth episode of the Play On Target podcast (PLOT for short). This episode features a discussion about player investment. What are the signs that you have well-invested players at your table? How do you get players engaged in the story? How do you get players excited at the table? Away from the table? How do you get players invested? What are the key techniques in getting players more invested? We address all of those questions and more. We hope you enjoy listening to the discussion.

    My interest in Games like with things like Aspects in Fate or Backgrounds in 13th Age was spurred by a GM who cleary hadn’t read my character sheet in a WEG d6 game. That’s a system where you have to make specific allocations of dice, half-dice, and “pips” to skills and skill groups. I took the time to do all that, and probably never used half the skills I had so carefully chosen. That was when I decided I was done with niggly point-allocation systems and detailed skill lists.
