RPG A Day 2015 – Day Twenty Five

Favourite Revolutionary Game Mechanic I’ve never encountered any that felt particularly revolutionary… Sure I like the dice that come with Fantasy Flight’s Star Wars RPGs. They’re kinda cool and do add something to the game but are they revolutionary?  Nope. Now this might be down to me playing the “wrong...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Twenty Four

Favourite House Rule? I’ve used many fudges and tweaks and mods to games over the years but I don’t think I’ve ever actually sat down and said “This is a house rule.” I think the 1 thing I tend to incorporate into all of the games I’m running is that...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Twenty Three

Perfect game for you… Erm I don’t think I’ve found it yet. But in saying that… D&D 5th Edition is pretty close but that’s largely due to the knowledge I’ve built up of D&D and indeed Fantasy in general from the past 30 years.  I know I can pick up...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Twenty Two

Perfect Gaming Environment. I don’t think I have one… by that I mean I’ve gamed in public, at conventions, at clubs, in stores and at home.  None of these are any less perfect than any other so long as the game is working and the players are having fun. There...

Favourite Horror RPG… As a reminder, I don’t really do horror. That said if I had to choose one it’d be All Flesh Must Be Eaten. Having used it for different sorts of games but keeping an undead element I think it works really well in general.  The archetypes in...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Nineteen

Favourite Supers RPG… As I’ve said previously on this blog I’ve never felt that Superhero RPGs have really worked. Especially confused by this given the episodic nature of Superhero comic books. If I had to choose one though? It’d probably be Golden Heroes or Savage Worlds : Necessary Evil. Golden...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Eighteen

Favourite SF RPG… Sci-Fi RPG would have to be Star Wars : Edge Of The Empire, right? I’ve played every iteration of published Star Wars RPGs from the original West End Games Edition through their 2nd edition into the d20 versions that WotC produced and now with FFG which I...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Seventeen

Favourite Fantasy RPG… So this is a shoe in, right?  It’s D&D obviously, right? Actually yes it is but it’s not the only Fantasy RPG I’ve ever played but it’s the one I keep coming back to irrespective of which version it is. Other Fantasy RPGs that I’ve tried include...

RPG A Day 2015 – Day Sixteen

Longest Game Session Played… Well I ran a game of 1st Edition AD&D for 24 hours once for charity.  Think that wins? So how did this happen then? I think it was 1991 as I would have been about 17 at the time.My friends and I had signed up to...
