All posts by Sunglar

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!

RPG a Day 2016: “I find your lack of good taste disturbing” – Day 28

And here we are just three days away from the end of #RPGaDay 2016. Ok so I cheated by covering days 1, 2 and 3 in one post and then  21, 22, 23 and 24 in another, but hey, I’ve written on all of the themes for this year so far. Let’s not drop the ball now. It is so kind of you to come around Sunday; let’s get on with the topic at hand.

August 28: What film or novel would you be most surprised that a friend had not seen or read?

Here is what the RPG a Day 2016 topic list says about today’s question: “We all have ‘shelves of shame’ full of books or films we want to read or watch, but have not. What would you be most surprised to learn that a person in your game group had not seen or read?”

I like the concept! “Shelves of shame” of books or films we haven’t gotten around to reading or watching. I can certainly empathize, definitely going to use that again. This is a curious question because if I had answered it fifteen or twenty years ago it would have been easier. As far as books go The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, movies would be Star Wars and Conan. These days, well it’s not so cut and dry; let me tell you why… Continue reading RPG a Day 2016: “I find your lack of good taste disturbing” – Day 28

RPG a Day 2016: Here, there, and everywhere! – Day 27

We’re on the final stretch here on #RPGaDay 2016. Last Saturday post of the challenge (and probably for a while here in the blog, Saturdays are not out usual posting days) and its time to start sharing some of the news I’ve been hinting at the last couple of days. Details on the post below…

August 27: Describe the most unusual circumstance or location in which you have gamed.

Let me think, an unusual location or situation? I guess I’ve been lucky to have regular places to play, none which seem too unusual. Typically at home for many years, then at friends’ homes. FLGS with spaces to play have not been common until recently here in Puerto Rico. We played at the table at first, but then began playing around the coffee table sitting on sofas and recliners, and are currently again around a table, full circle I guess!

RPG a Day 2016: Hobby Mix & Match – Day 26

After today there are only five days to go on this year’s #RPGaDay 2016! August has paradoxically seemed to fly by in some ways and just drag on in others. I’m writing these last posts as I get ready to take some days off and take a trip, the big news has to do with that. I’ll share the details with you before this series of posts is over, don’t worry. The topic today is hobbies, specifically hobbies that complement the hobby of role-playing games.

August 26: What hobbies go well with RPGs?

The official question list here explains further: “What other hobbies have beneficial effects in a roleplaying game group?”
