RPGaDay 2016 #29
I don't think the question for today is particularly useful. For the record, it's " If you could host a game anywhere on Earth, where would that be? " The need to travel the Earth to game just feels odd to me. The "gaming Dream Team" question earlier this m...

RPGaDay 2016 #27 Describe The Most Unusual Circumstance Or Location In Which You Have Gamed.
I would have to say the most unusual location I've gamed it would have to be a shed. There was a table in the shed, but not quite enough chairs or perimeter for everyone to sit around it. We were playing D&D, but didn't have our map and minis out. There mig...

RPGaDay 2016 #25 What makes for a good character?
A great character is one in motion. They've got something to do, somewhere to go. And that doesn't just mean in the broad sense of having a quest, mission or goal to pursue. It can also mean that the character has something to contribute to every scene they...

RPGaDay #23 Share One Of Your Best 'Worst Luck' Stories
That would have to be the sad yet hilarious tale of Bentley, a gnome illusionist from the early days of the old school megadungeon game. Among the various rooms full of monsters, there was a 10 foot by 10 foot room with 3 or 4 skeletons in it. As we were pl...

RPGaDay 2016 #21 What Was The Funniest Misinterpretation Of A Game Rule In Your Group?
Off the top of my head, I don't think I have the precise story the question seems to be looking for. No strong memories of ""OMG! If I had known that rule worked differently, that thing never would have happened!" One recent amusing misinterpretation that h...

RPGaDay 2016 #19 What Is The Best Way To Learn A New Game?
I'm sure someone would say that play is the best education on a game system. Take a pregenerated character and put them through their paces, learning how the dice work and how no to die in combat. And there is a certain truth to that. But I think that, espe...

RPGaDay 2016 #28 What Film Or Novel Would You Be Most Surprised That A Friend Had Not Seen or Read?
I am always surprised to find out that people haven't seen The Wizard of Oz. While I know a lot of people haven't read the book, the film seems like one of those cultural touchstones. "Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh my!" "We're off to see the Wizard!" "Ding...

RPGaDay 2016 #26 What hobbies go well with RPGs?
I think the best hobby for gamers is reading. Whether you're reading fact or fiction, a good book stimulates and engages the brain. It's also a good way to pick up ideas, which are the currency of gaming these days. It is possible to get inspirations and id...

RPGaDay 2016 #24 What is the game you are most likely to give to others as a gift?
To be fully honest, the game that I have given as a gift is actually my own, Adventures in Oz: Fantasy Roleplaying Beyond the Yellow Brick Road . It was a Christmas gift for my niece, who I was also gifting with the Oz books at the time. So it wasn't totall...

RPGaDay 2016 #22 What Are Some Random Events In Your Games That Keep Happening?
I don't really do random events outside of my D&D style games. When I am allowed to be my more story-centric self, I prefer that even the minor encounters have something to say about what's going on. Even if it's as simple as "This is dinosaur country!" I'm...

RPGaDay 2016 #20 What Is The Most Challenging But Rewarding System You Have Learned?
This is actually kind of interesting. I can think of a number of challenging systems and a number of rewarding systems, but not much in the way of "challenging, but rewarding." I mean, GURPS is a challenging system. It's got a lot of detail, a lot of moving...

RPGaDay 2016 #18 What Innovation Could RPG Groups Gain The Most Benefit From?
One thing that I would recommend to anyone running a fairly long term campaign would be using timeline software. I found a great program for free here ! I don't know how many of you GMs out there have toyed with the idea of keeping a detailed campaign calen...
