RPGaDay2020 in August - August 14th: Banner

We continue on with #RPGaDay2020 in August.

Day 14 - Banner

Hmm, don't have a lot to give to this word prompt for the day.

A banner is usually a flag on a pole that is used as the standard of a monarch, army, or knight. It can also be representative for a guild or other organization (for example a mercenary company). Banners are usually something to rally behind.

In roleplaying games, banners can be metaphorical - a cause, a common enemy, a goal of some sort. A banner is something to rally behind. In an RPG, it can be metaphorical. It can be a cause, a common enemy or a goal of any kind. What GMs and players need to remember is that the imagery of the banner should be representative of what the banner is trying to depict. For example, a banner with a dragon, a wolf, or a bear on it sends a message that represents or means something specific. So it's important to think of what the image on a banner or crest is meant to convey.

And no, I have no idea what a squirrel on a banner means at all... :)

That's all I've got for today.

And there you have this fourteenth post for this #RPGaDay for August, 2020. Comments, thoughts, questions, etc. are all welcome, of course. :)
