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
