#RPGaDay2017 Day 18: The Answer is D&D


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 12: Look at the pretty pictures


Welcome to the second Saturday post for #RPGaDay2017. If a picture speaks a thousand words, then the book I’m about to talk about has a about a million!

August 12: Which RPG has the most inspiring interior art?

This was one of my picks for Day 5, Mutants & Mastermind 1st edition. That book blew my mind, from the layout to the art. Every single piece inspired me and made me want to play a superhero game. Mind you, the excellent writing by Steve Kenson was also part of the allure.

Mutants & Masterminds has maintained a standard of excellence that is truly amazing. Through all three editions their books are just a delight to look upon. Check them out!

See, short, sweet and to the point. Now you can get back to your regular Saturday schedule. Remember that at the Desde la Fosa YouTube channel you can see our video reply for this very same question in Spanish. So, swing on by if you are idiomatically inclined!

What book has the most inspiring interior art for you? Let us know. See you Sunday!

#RPGaDay2017 Day 5: You CAN judge a book by its cover!


Thank you everyone for coming back for #RPGaDay2017 day 5, and very special thanks to those of you that left a comment yesterday on yesterday’s post. Today is the first of our Saturday posts. Weekend topics always seem special tome for some reason…. Today’s question is:

August 5: Which RPG cover best captures the spirit of the game? 

This is another tough one for me! The quality of RPG book art direction has evolved so much through the years it is oftentimes unfair to compare books across the decades. There is the iconic red dragon vs. the fighter by Larry Elmore in the D&D red basic set. The revised covers of the AD&D books. In more recent years, the cover of the 1s edition of Mutants & Masterminds is still to me one of the best superhero RPG covers. So many choices, what to pick?
