+Dyson Logos, I finally got around to finishing that form-fillable version of the 5e permanent character record, seven months later.. heh.

30. Favorite RPG Playing Celebrity

I'm going to cheat and say the entire cast of Critical Role, +Geek & Sundry's cast of voice over artists who stream a weekly game. They are fantastic people to watch!

28. Favorite game you no longer play.

Star wars RPG second edition. Played it in high school, and I miss the shenanigans we got up to on our old rust bucket of a YT-1300.

27. Favorite Idea for Merging Two Games Into One

A few years back, my regular game group had a wacky idea for a campaign based entirely on the Blur Studios short A Gentlemen's Duel, below.

We settled on 18th century France as our backdrop, gave it some alternate history tweaks (notably, the Phlogiston theory was proven to be correct in our world), and gave it some steampunky elements (crude mech technology, etc). We called our campaign Clank, after the in-world term for mech.

For rules, we decided that we would need two separate rule sets, one for what we called Adventure scale, which was our characters getting into hijinks personally, and Battle scale, which was our characters commanding larger forces on a battlefield.

For Adventure scale, we used Shadowrun 2nd edition rules, removed the demi-humans, specified a relatively low magic setting, and reflavored the little bits of magic we kept in a very steampunk way (some more magic was brought in later in a strongly Cthulhian vibe).

For Battle scale, we used Battletech (I forget which edition), largely because it added only two more stats to track, and had a pretty quick and easy turn by turn flow.

The combination of the two systems actually worked fairly well, and the campaign was easily the most entertaining and ridiculous one I've ever had the pleasure of participating in. I miss it!

Can an AL player make a character that is one of the elemental evil races, using one of the hilsfar backgrounds? Or are they restricted to the character options of only one season?

As funny as it is a commentary on how few people use g+ I cannot let this space remain blank!

Today another core book was retired. My PHB's binding has failed, just like my MM's did a few months ago, heh.

Refer to my last comment where I said it's a copy signed by several of the WoTC crew. I'd rather buy a new one than return it. :P

31. Favorite Non-RPG Thing to Come Out of RPGing

That would be a girlfriend that games with me! Wouldn't have met her if I wasn't in my regular Sunday gaming group.

29. Favorite RPG Website/Blog

Dyson's Dodecahedron, by the wonderful +Dyson Logos. I love maps, and I love his art style, so that's a double plus benefit!

I like it so much I became one of his Patrons, and I heartily recommend the same to others! https://www.patreon.com/dysonlogos

25. Favorite Revolutionary Game Mechanic

Personally, it was the DM never rolls dice mechanic of Numenéra. It encouraged me to look at a lot of systems differently.

26. Favorite Inspiration for Your Game

Watching other DMs do their thing! Currently, I'm really digging +Geek & Sundry's Critical Role series. Very creative DM and players! Super inspiring!

24. Favorite House Rule

Probably my favorite house rules are various oddball stat rolling methods for D20 type games. Mostly cause I absolutely HATE point-buy.

I think my fave of them was the one time I played a one-shot where we just rolled a d20 for each stat and ran with it. If any stat came up less than 3, the character died in creation and you started over, heh.
