#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 27

Day 27 - Describe the most unusual circumstance or location in which you've gamed.

When I was in my late teens and early 20's we used to game constantly. While we didn't do it with D&D, there were several times that Josh, Chad, Wirty, and I would play our Dragon Ball Z homebrew rpg while driving around. The game was rp heaving and we didn't need always need a full set of dice.

#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 26

Day 26 - What hobbies go well with rpgs?

I think most table top games go well with rpgs. Pretty much all of my D&D pals, also play board and card games. In addition, several of them play miniatures games, like Hordes and Iron Kingdoms. While there's some stigma with some grognards I've met, I think video game players and rpg players have a lot in common and are often one in the same. Well let me rephrase that, not a lot of video game players play rpg's, but most rpg players I know play video games.

#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 25

Day 25 - What makes for a good character?

Good characters happen when players let themselves have fun and get into character. Good characters are memorable. A good character meshes with the group (even if that's providing an interesting foil to another player). Good characters have their day in the sun, but also let other characters shine.

#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 24

Day 24 - What is the game you are most likely to give to others as a gift?

It depends on the person, but I think if I was going to gift an rpg to friends I would go with Buffy the Vampire Slayer or another Cinematic Unisystem game. They are just great, story heavy, rules lite games.

#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 23

Day 23 - Share one of your best 'Worst Luck' stories.

My Buffy character, Kyle, had the worst luck. He got hit with a magical beam that created an evil doppleganger, "Darth Kyle." The doppleganger hurt his already poor social standing. His love interest was mind controlled and knocked him out. He then got kidnapped, his throat cut, and watched her kill her watcher (while still mind controlled). He then had to fight his evil doppleganger to save said comatose slayer.
Kyle (as portrayed by Gerard Way) went through quite a bit in a few sessions of play.

#RPGaDay 2016 - Day 22

Day 22 - What are some random events in your games that keep happening?

Again, I don't really have anything for this, so I'm going to use an alternate.

Day 22 (alternate) - How does your group like to start a session?

My regular group starts every game night with dinner and a hour catch-up b/s session. It's just what we do. It's right after I get off work, so I'm hungry. We also don't get to see each other as much as we'd like, so we use the time to catch up and shoot the shit.
