DM prep & me

I’m trying to get over my hang-ups on prep. I’ve always struggled with it. What’s the right amount of prep? I suspect I think I err on the side of too much rather than too little. But at the same time I want to make sure I allow for interesting choices.

For now, though, I’m just trying to come up with plot hooks or plot ideas. It’s fun.

One thing I am using for inspiration, at least somewhat, is the list of 100 plot ideas in the 3.5 DMG.

My goal is to be able to come up with adventures with less fuss.

I don’t have a good system for taking notes or anything like that, unfortunately. I do have a new notebook I’m using to write down ideas for a one-shot I am planning on running. We’ll see if I can get it all together in time.

Does anyone out there have a system, technique, method, et al, they like for prep?
