Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!

August 21: Which RPG does the most with the least words?

As stated before, we usually play longer campaigns which benefit from more complex games than the one discussed here, but I love short games for one-shot sessions, for game demos at conventions, or simply to teach people about RPGs. So, what are my pics for today? Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 21: “Brevity is the soul of wit.”

August 20: What is the best source for out-of-print RPGs?

I’ve been lucky in the sense that I’ve kept most of my RPG collection intact through the years. I’ve given away a book here or there, but I Still have most of my books. When I look for out-of-print books it is usually games I never owned that I find out about later. Where do I get them? Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 12: Gaming at e(of the)bay…

Well hello there! Thanks for coming back for the third Saturday installment of #RPGaDay2017. This seems to be D&D week for me.  Now we’re here for a different subject. Let me introduce the question:

August 19: Which RPG features the best writing?

I love RPGs. That shouldn’t be a surprise. My social media presence is a testament to this. I’ve read a lot of RPG books through the years. While I certainly enjoy reading role-playing books, they are not all a joy to read. The D&D Red Box, which was my first RPG, was an exciting read, because I was so excited about the game, the writing was evocative, the style approachable. Exactly what you need for an introductory game. For ease of reading and understanding how to play a game that was a big win.

Dream big! Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 19: Writers, write. Gamers, game.
