RPG a Day 2015 Challenge – Day 30

The next to last post for #RPGaDay2015, I’m already sad it’s ending; hopefully we can do this again in 2016. Here’s the final Sunday post…

Day 30 – Favorite RPG playing celebrity

Celebrity is such a charged word… What makes you a celebrity? The modern concept of celebrity is so often maligned. In the context of the hobby many of the artists and writers would be celebrities for us, but not outside the industry. I went with the more general concept of celebrity in my pick.

My favorite RPG playing celebrity is Mark Sinclair, aka Vin Diesel! Let me tell you why. He is a very well know celebrity, open and honest about his love for D&D, while at the same time being very guarded about his private life.

RPG a Day 2015 Challenge – Day 29

And we are in the final stretch! The last Saturday post for #RPGaDay2015, I really hope everybody is having a great weekend. Let’s get down to business

Day 29 – Favorite RPG website/blog

What a silly question…Well Stargazer’s World of course! Not only because I post here, ok it has a little to do with it, but because I really enjoy the content Michael posts. From the first time I read the blog it felt very genuine and heartfelt. I consider him one of my best friends and I’m ever thankful for the space he provides me here.

But If I had to choose another blog/site one that is NOT the one I blog for, let me see…

I really enjoy EN World. I’ve been following it since the early 3rd edition previews and while I’ve fallen away from reading the forums as much as I used to, where I participated briefly, they cover games I really enjoy in their news section, so I regularly check them out.

As far as other blogs go I enjoy Gnome Stew’s posts, for a company site I really enjoy the tone and content of the Paizo Blog, and the forums at Green Ronin.

What’s your favorite RPG website/blog? Let us know in the comments, see you tomorrow.

RPG a Day 2015 Challenge – Day 28

Before everything else, a quick tropical storm Erika update: I’m ok! You can sleep better knowing I will finish my posts for #RPGaDay2015. Here in Puerto Rico we were lucky the storm was disorganized and ended up moving south of us. We have various municipalities without power, there was some flooding, but we didn’t suffer any major consequences. Erika is now moving towards our neighbor the Dominican Republic; I hope they are as fortunate as us. Sadly, the effects of Erika were terrible in Dominica… Predictive models have it arriving in Florida as a hurricane, everybody stay safe! Now, on to the post…

Day 28 – Favorite game you no longer play

Star Frontiers Group

This game has made previous appearances this year for #RPGaDay2015 as well as last year, Star Frontiers. This game was my first sci-fi game after playing D&D, I remember getting the box, coloring the dice with the crayon, and it was an easy transition from fantasy to science fiction. Through high school I played as much Star Frontiers as D&D. It was my first long term sci-fi campaign. I played a solo game with a neighbor for months; we played it at lunch in school for about two years. I even had two parallel campaigns running with intertwined storylines.
