Back to Glossary


A one-shot is an adventure that's embarked upon and completed in a single, three-hour session. It's the hardest length adventure to design, because three hours is not a lot of time to work with. One-shots tend to be exclusively linear in nature and consist of very few scenes. It often makes sense to run a highly abridged version of session zero during the one-shot itself, skipping things like conflicts, flaws, and story tags.
