RPG a Day 2016: Favorite Inspiration for your Game Part 2 – Day 15

Another week begins, and a new set of posts for #RPGaDay 2016 challenge. Here’s hoping everyone had a great weekend. Let’s get going with today’s topic…

August 15: What types or source of inspiration do you turn to most often for RPGs?

Inspiration

Sources of inspiration were the topic of Day 26 of RPG a Day last year. I won’t repeat what I said there; let me just tell you that I talked about comics, Babylon 5 and telenovelas.

Saturday once more, we’re almost done with week two, and today we touch on a topic near and dear to my heart, campaigns. It’s also a topic I’ve written about before here in the blog, and in Facebook and Twitter on occasion, but the subject keeps coming up in conversations with friends, so I think it’s worth reiterating.  Today’s #RPGaDay 2016 challenge question is:

August 13: What makes a successful campaign?

Most of you are probably know the KISS principle, it stands for: Keep It Simple Stupid. I first heard that from my 10th grade English teacher with relation to a writing assignment (Not too flattering calling your students stupid!), only learning later of the principle’s origin. I have my own version of it for what makes a campaign successful, the KICK! Principle. Continue reading RPG a Day 2016: The KICK! Principle — Day 13
