Hello one and all, and welcome to my look back at 2017, and a look at what may be in store for 2018. I don’t pretend to do a retrospective for the blog itself, but just about my gaming experiences this year, hopefully our readers will find it interesting. Here we go…
This year, besides collaborating here in the blog and participating in Puerto Rico Role Players, I tried two new things I had not done before. Playtesting and starting a video channel. The playtesting came about when the new Alternity game was announced. As a HUGE fan of the previous version of the game I enrolled to participate in the playtest right away. I rarely participated in playtests because I loathed to interrupt my regular game, so to get around this I decided to run the playtesting at a local FLGS that had jut opened in a new location.

Hello and welcome to the last Saturday post for #RPGaDay2017. We’re almost done. This month has flown by far too fast! Just like yesterday, I Was unsure about what to write today. Once I figured it out, the rest flowed easily. What is the topic for today you ask? Here you go:

August 19: Which RPG features the best writing?
I love RPGs. That shouldn’t be a surprise. My social media presence is a testament to this. I’ve read a lot of RPG books through the years. While I certainly enjoy reading role-playing books, they are not all a joy to read. The D&D Red Box, which was my first RPG, was an exciting read, because I was so excited about the game, the writing was evocative, the style approachable. Exactly what you need for an introductory game. For ease of reading and understanding how to play a game that was a big win.
Dream big! Continue reading #RPGaDay2017 Day 19: Writers, write. Gamers, game.
