Day 6 – Most recent RPG played

SW_LOGO_24bit

Savage World! We’ve been playing the game in our weekly gaming session, for which I am the Game Master, for over a year and a half, 55 sessions now. The campaign is based on ideas I posted about extensively here in the blog, the Wanderers of the Outlands. You can find the first post here. Playing Savage Worlds for so long has been a treat, I’ve gotten to understand the system so much better, with all the great things and the inevitable warts every RPG system has. I plan on doing a post mortem once the campaign is finished in a couple of months, so be on the lookout for that.

The next game on the pipeline is D&D 5th edition for which I’m doing campaign prep, and I’m also toying with an old idea I want to adapt to the Cypher System by Monte Cook Games.

What are you playing? See you tomorrow…

RPG a Day 2015 Challenge – Day 5

Here we are on day 5 of the #RPGaDay2015 challenge. Remember to share and support the idea, it’s all about spreading our love for the hobby! So on to…

Day 5 – Most recent RPG purchase

TitansgraveTitansgrave: The Ashes of Valkana, well at least the PDF! I recently preordered the physical book and added the PDF option. After doing the same for the Fantasy AGE game, and really enjoying the book, there was no hesitation about getting this book. It is based on the Geek & Sundry series of the same name. I’ve enjoyed the video series thus far, but my initial perusal of the game leaves me wanting more on the setting. The different chapters of the series are covered in the book in great detail, but I wanted more background on the setting, but that’s just me nitpicking because the book is exactly what was announced.

Fantasy ageFans seem to love it, apparently sales were through the roof at gen Con.  Fantasy AGE is a great system and this book is a first great supplement for it.

See you tomorrow for Day 6. Have a great day!

RPG a Day 2015 Challenge – Day 4

And we’re back… Back to posting in the blog, and back for the next entry on the #RPGaDay2015 Challenge! You can find my previous post here.

Day 4-  Most surprising game

Amber_DRPGSurprise could mean a few things… I’m surprised just how much I liked this game, or how disappointed I was, or how complex, but I’m going on a limb here and go for all three! My answer is, the Amber Diceless RPG. When we played it I had not read The Chronicles of Amber and while I found the concept and the ideas in the book fascinating, we couldn’t wrap our heads around it. We got to the attribute auction and we talked about the game a lot, but never got around to actually playing it. We were younger and I’m sure there was a little gamer ADD involved when a new shinny came around, but to this day I am surprised by the ideas in the book, and sorry I didn’t get to play it!

Thanks for reading, and please share your thoughts, or our own entries, I would love to see what your picks are. Until tomorrow!
