RPGaDay 28th & 29th

Tue 29 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

28th) What film or series is the most-frequent source of quotes in your group? So I forgot to schedule a post for this question, partially down to finding it a little meh. Amongst the groups I’ve played in quotes have generally come from either the source material for the game (such as Firefly) or from …


RPGaDay August 27th

Sun 27 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

27th) What are your essential tools for good gaming? Character sheets, dice, 1 copy of the core rulebook. That’s really all I’d term as essential but if we’re expanding out then I’m going to cheat and point you towards a previous post where I detailed my ...

RPGaDay August 26th

Sat 26 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

26th) Which RPG provides the most useful resources? Quite a wide open question this. What should be defined as a resource? You could go the splat book approach in which case I would have to say Legend of the Five Rings and Corporation. For both of those games the extra ...

Fri 25 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

25th) What is the best way to thank your GM? Beyond just saying ‘hey I’m really enjoying the game, thanks for running it’ I can think of a few ways. But that really is the best approach. So what are those other ways? Well the biggest is simply to ...

RPGaDay August 24th

Thu 24 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

24th) Share a PWYW publisher who should be charging more. Not sure I can really answer this one as there is only one PWYW publisher that I have purchased from on a regular basis. That publisher is of course Evil Hat, creators of FATE. I’m loathe to say they ...

RPGaDay 23rd August

Wed 23 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

23rd) Which RPG has the most jaw-dropping layout? My immediate thought is Technoir, it really excels at having a minimalist future vibe that is clear, concise and easy to read. Those last aspects are particularly important due to nature of the information RPG books have to convey but where Technoir ...

RPGaDay August 22nd

Tue 22 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

22nd) Which RPGs are the easiest for you to run? This again mostly comes down to familiarity for me, so once again I’m going with Cortex. More specifically Cortex Classic or Cortex Plus Action (such as Firefly) which are the two variants I’ve personally run. For both of ...

RPGaDay 20th and 21st August

Mon 21 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

Double post before I fall even more behind and because two days is the most dramatically appropriate number of posts to catch-up on. 20th) What is the best source for out-of-print RPGs? For me it’s a mix of eBay and drivethruRPG depending on whether I want to own physical ...

RPGaDay 19th August

Sat 19 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

19th) Which RPG features the best writing? A quick last minute post here that I might expand on later but here’s a few that I enjoy reading for a range of reasons. Legend of the Five Rings – Probably the best world building and setting information I’ve come across ...

RPGaDay August 18th

Fri 18 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

18th) Which RPG have you played the most in your life? In terms of total hours it would have to be Torg, I was in a long campaign of it and have run a couple of campaigns of it. Total play time would be around a year and a half ...

RPGaDay August 17th

Thu 17 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

17th) Which RPG have you owned the longest but not played? Probably some of the really niche indie games such as Best Friends by Gregor Hutton, Cold City from Contested Ground Studios or Piledrivers and Powerbombs by Prince of Darkness Games. There was a vibrant Scottish small press community during ...

RPGaDay August 16th

Wed 16 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

16th) Which RPG do you enjoy using as is? I’m not sure there is a single RPG I’ve played where I haven’t wanted to tweak it in some way or another but at the same time I’ve enjoyed using most ‘as is’ and I make it ...

RPGaDay August 14th

Mon 14 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

14th) Which RPG do you prefer for open-ended campaign play? Honestly this is another question where I think almost any with the exception of those designed for one shots (Fiasco etc). As I’ve already mentioned my I’m moving away from open ended play towards more focus story arcs ...

RPGaDay 2017 11th August

Sun 13 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

11th) Which ‘dead game’ would you like to see reborn? Until recently I would have responded to this with Torg but that’s just had a wildly successful Kickstarter and relaunch so I’m actually at a bit of a loss for this question. [A while later] Actually one of ...

RPGaDay 12th August

Sun 13 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

12th) Which RPG has the most inspiring interior art? Like the cover art question difficult to answer, when it comes to art I tend to appreciate its inclusion as a whole but rarely pick it out individually. Tales from the Loop gets an honourable mention once again but I think ...

RPGaDay August 13th

Sun 13 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

13th) Describe a game experience that changed how you play. I actually have a few examples for this one but I want to focus on one, which served to codify my opinions on running convention games. The UK Student Nationals is a convention that brings together student societies from across ...

RPGaDay 2017 August 10th

Thu 10 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

10th) Where do you go for RPG reviews? Mostly I’ll search for them rather than have a single site that I go to. For the majority of games my interested tends have been stoked through twitter, podcasts or a forum and I’ll then go in search of actual ...

RPGaDay 2017 9th August

Wed 09 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

9th) What is a good RPG to play for about 10 sessions? Most. I’m slowly coming to the conclusion that around 10 sessions is a good length for a tightly focused campaign and that I like that fixed length. It gives you long enough for a proper plot arc ...

RPGaDay 2017 8th August

Tue 08 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

8th) What is a good RPG to play for sessions of 2hrs or less? If we’re talking individual sessions then I think some of the more indie one shot systems work really well for this. They quite often have an emphasis on short scenes framed around a single purpose ...

RPGaDay 2017 7th August

Mon 07 August 2017 by Craig from LunarShadow.net

7th) What was your most impactful RPG session? Once again another difficult question to answer as while I can think of numerous impactful games many of those came from looking back after a campaign and seeing how the story arcs had come together. I could mention my first campaign of ...
