On Friday I'll be doing a role play demo for 13 Montessori students between 12 and 14 years old. It's a one hour deal, and this is my second time to do it.
Since it is such a short time frame, and such a large group, I'm doing a hugely simplified demo, but this year I am basing it on the old module Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, and I'd like to get your input.
With the limited time frame, I have to try to squeeze in encounters in fairly rapid order. Last year I was able to do six or seven 'encounters'. Each encounter was basically them running into a problem of some sort, and then discussing a solution, and rolling a couple of dice to determine the outcome. I'd like to do something similar, and crib from the Barrier Peaks.
Can you kind people suggest your favorite encounters from the Barrier Peaks? Which ones would be fun, even in condensed form, for a group of kids?
(edit) Q: What System, exactly? A: No system. Just something madeup on the fly, like "roll higher than 10 for a success." stuff. Totally winging it - it's a one hour deal with a dozen kids. System is like the least of the deal here.
