#RPGaDay 2015 – Day 25 – 31

Day 25 – Favorite Revolutionary Game Mechanic Into the Odd is an old school inspired role-playing game that gets rid of the attack roll. When you attack, you automatically hit and deal damage. I really like that a lot, as it makes the system deadly but also very fast. Day 26 – Favorite inspiration for […]

#RPGaDay2015 – Day 18 – 24 Catchup

The novelty has faded off, but I’m still determined to see this series through. Let’s catch up a bit. Day 18 – Favorite SF RPG That’s, of course, the new Star Wars RPG line by FFG. I wrote about this already at Day 6 but here’s the gist: it’s a narrative-focussed medium-crunch RPG with focus […]

#RPGaDay2015 – Day 17: Favorite Fantasy RPG

Let’s make this short. The novelty of #rpgaday2015 has faded off and now we come to the favorite fantasy, horror, sci-fi, whatever game.

#RPGaDay2015 – Day 11: Favorite RPG Writer

There are lots of good writers/designers out there. For today, I’m voting for Avery McDaldno from Buried Without Ceremony because she wrote interesting games like Monsterhearts and The Quiet Year which have brought new things to the table (theme-wise or mechanics-wise). I remember donating money to charities and Avery sent me games for this, essentially […]

#RPGaDay2015 – Day 10: Favorite RPG Publisher

There are some great bigger publishers in the RPG industry but also there are many wonderful small one-man-show-publishers (yes, it’s more men than women but we have more men than women in this industry, right?). My favorite “indie” publisher is Paolo Greco/Lost Pages. It’s a small firm located in the UK. Paolo concentrates on old […]

#RPGaDay2015 – Day 8 and 9

Day 8: Favorite appearance of RPGs in the media I pass. I know in some of my TV shows they played RPGs but I can’t remember which. I thought it was nice, though. Day 9: Favorite media you wish was an RPG Brandon Sanderson’s Reckoners series. Sanderson is a superb storyteller. He is one of […]
