Today’s answer has been a constant all week, and it’s fitting it will be the Friday post. Just as the answer to the questions of #RPGaDay2017 about the game I prefer for open ended campaigns, and the one I like running as is, the answer for today is simple. Before I get to the answer, the question is:

August 18: Which RPG have you played the most in your life?

In case the banner picture at the top of the post didn’t give it away, the game I’ve played the most in my life is Dungeons & Dragons. I remember seeing this ad in a comic even before playing the game. Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 18: The Answer is D&D

#RPGaDay2017 Day 16: Game is as is. No returns!

Hello everyone to the hump post! Week three of #RPGaDay2017 continues apace. Today is the flipside of yesterday’s, and it is:

August 16: Which RPG do you enjoy using as is?

Dungeons & Dragons, it’s D&D… You may be saying, “But wait Roberto! You said yesterday that you modified the game.” And I did, but when you take into account how much I’ve played the game (come back for Day 18 to know just HOW much!), I’ve barely scratched the surface of modifying it. I typically run the game as is.

Of course, that was easier in the days of TSR. Once the OGL came about there is so much third-party content out there that you have a great menu to pick from when putting together your game. That’s the wonder of the Open Gaming License, it’s given us so many wonderful games to play. I may play it as is, but there is so much of it out there!

A simple reminder. The team at Desde la Fosa  is posting video replies in Spanish on our YouTube channel to the questions of #RPGaDay2017. We are grateful for your views, comments, and shares

So, what’s your as is game? Looking forward to your comments.

Monday is here! At least you have new #RPGaDay2017 content to enjoy. Today’s topic is about a topic near and dear to my heart. Long campaigns!

August 14: Which RPG do you prefer for open-ended campaign play?

I love long campaigns. They are my bread and butter. My typical campaign lasts an average of two years. Not only that, my homebrewed campaign (about which I’ve written in the blog before) was created in 1987, 30 years ago! The current version, after I rebooted the timeline and continuity, in 1993, has been going for 24 years. So that’s the point of reference I’m coming from when I talk about a long running open ended campaign. What RPG have I used for all those games? Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 14: No end in sight
