Wow, this morning I was trying to think of what to post, and then in the afternoon I realized I hadn't actually posted anything...

Well on one note, check out our Twitter to see some pictures of XioaKe at Salt Lake comic con.

For today's topic, how do you manage to remember all the different things that your character remembers? I've recently taken to writing some notes on important people/places, but let's face it, writing notes is boring sometimes. Does anyone have a better method for keeping track of things?

Well... I can't help you too much, I'm afraid, because I always take notes. However, the load becomes a bit lighter if everyone in the group pitches in and keeps track of what the group is learning as a whole. I've never done this, but I'd heard of groups assigning different duties to each player. One player brings snacks for the evening, another takes notes, another uploads the notes to a shared drive, etc. These roles can then be rotated.

I think taking notes is a good activity for downtime though. It keeps you engaged in the game itself, while not necessarily having to pay complete attention while one character is busy shopping.

As a side note, don't leave your poor GM the job of taking all the notes. I've been there, and it's not fun. :) The GM will probably take notes regardless, but it helps if the players are also keeping track of what they know.

Even as a GM I'm terrible at taking notes. I'm fine for stuff I actually did prep for, but given that for any given session my prep might cover as little as 20% or so - I ad lib a lot - I often find myself creating NPCs on the spur of the moment that later turn out to be important. Fortunately my players keep better notes than me. :)
