I picked +Peter Regan's OSR Character Sheet Pads as my choice for best-run RPG Kickstarter as symbolic of all the great Kickstarters he's run (you may know him as the publisher of the hugely popular Black Hack, for instance).Peter's Kickstarters are always small, well-organised, and punctual in their delivery.To date he has run 16 Kickstarters - not all directly RPG-related - and I have backed

Sun 27 August 2017 by Runeslinger from Casting Shadows

Whether movies, books, video games, or inspirobot-fueled philosophizing it would seem that quotes we shall always have. Where ...

#RPGaDay 2017: What RPG Does the Most With the Least Amount of Words?

Mon 21 August 2017 by blackcampbell from The Black Campbell

I can’t really speak to this except to say it was published before White Wolf became popular. Any of the early RPGs from the mid ’80s can set up rules and a setting with half the pages than an RPG can today. Jeez, Cubicle 7 felt the need to ...

#RPGaDAY: What Is The Best Source For Out-Of-Print RPGs?

Sun 20 August 2017 by Tim Knight from HeroPress

Before international postage costs went completely insane, I was a regular(ish) costumer of Noble Knight Games, but generally the best source for old games has always been eBay... aided by a well-worded search alert and a lot of patience.

If you wait long enough, everything eventually pops up on ...

#RPGaDAY: Which RPG Features The Best Writing?

Sat 19 August 2017 by Tim Knight from HeroPress

I have a confession to make: I'm not that big a fan of the TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer. There was lots about the series I really enjoyed, but there was also a lot that annoyed me. Ultimately, I was more taken with the 'idea' of the show ...

#RPGaDay 2017: Which RPG Have You Played the Most in Your Life?

Fri 18 August 2017 by blackcampbell from The Black Campbell

Easy: Victory Games’ James Bond: 007. I bought a first edition copy in 1983 and have used it until about 2010, since when we haven’t had an espionage game running. Partly, this is a function of having worked in the industry, partly it was a response to the real ...

#RPGaDay 2017: Which RPG Have You Owned the Longest and Not Played?

Thu 17 August 2017 by blackcampbell from The Black Campbell

I think this question is supposed to be “…and never played.” At least that’s how I’m taking it. Hands down, this is Jovian Chronicles by Dream Pod 9. It’s an anime giant-robot setting with a lot of hard science trappings. Think The Expanse meets any Japanimation space ...

#RPGaDAY: Which RPG Has The Most Inspiring Interior Art?

Mon 14 August 2017 by Tim Knight from HeroPress

I know there are games out there with gorgeous painted interior artwork that I love, but for me the most inspiring has always been every iteration of Villains & Vigilantes because of Jeff Dee's art.

When I first encountered Villains & Vigilantes, it was Jeff's artwork that defined the game ...

I'm not certain if Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy Role Playing Grindhouse Edition is the longest title for an RPG but if it isn't, it's got to be awfully close. (Henceforth I'm going to abbreviate it as LotFP - originally I was going with WFRP ...

#RPGaDay Day 13 - A Game Experience That Changed How I Play

Mon 14 August 2017 by Daniel Stack from 19th Level

For me, possibly the most transformative experience was shifting from a physical to virtual table. It's something we did in stages, but the first stage was probably the most important - a simple webcam connecting us with a player who moved away but wanted to keep gaming.

Mon 07 August 2017 by Daniel Stack from 19th Level
