#RPGaDay Day 21: Favorite Licensed RPG

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 21, our question is what is your favorite licensed RPG?

Aser – I haven’t played any licensed RPGs yet, though I guess technically speaking Call of Cthulhu is a derivative work. I’d say of the licensed games we have, the one I’m looking forward to trying most is Dresden Files.

John – Call of Cthulhu

Landan – Does Star Wars fit this if so then it

Megan – Dresden Files!

Shaunna – I’m not even sure what this is asking for, so here’s my category for today: favorite podcast NPC: Tess from CaF Podcast.

#RPGaDay Day 20: Will still play in 20 years time…

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 20, our question is what game will you still play in 20 years?

Aser – I’m betting Megan says Numenèra, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’ll be playing Numenèra. :)

John – in 20 yrs time I will still play Call of Cthulhu

Landan – Probably Pathfinder

Megan – Since if I answer Numenera again you might think I’m boring, I’ll go with Final Girl and Fiasco. They’re a lot of fun and easy to teach people, and even if you run the same scenario it will be completely unique each time.

Shaunna – Who knows??? I can’t box myself in like that :)

#RPGaDay Day 19: Favorite Published Adventure

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter. (Shaunna made up her own categories for those she has no answer to)

For August 19, our question is what your favorite published adventure?

Aser – Despite quite a few little errors PX Poker Night for Delta Green holds a special place in my heart because it is the seed from which TRF sprung.A lot of what makes our playthrough special comes from Mike of course, but the original scenario is very solid and comes to you at the extremely reasonable price of free.The official published adventures for Numenèra have been great too, with each illustrating just how alien the Ninth World really is: with my favorite being Beyond All Worlds. I am a big fan of scenarios written by RPPR contributor Caleb Stokes as well.

John – D&D X1, Isle of Dread

Landan – Kingmaker for Pathfinder

Megan – Beyond all Worlds for Numenera. I streamlined some parts of it to keep it a shorter adventure for our one shot, but I think it is a great and flexible adventure.

Shaunna – Favorite D&D Podcast battle: Thom and the Kraken.

#RPGaDay Day 18: Favorite Game System

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 18, our question is what your favorite game system?

Aser – I really like Eclipse Phase, but ultimately it’s a system that does one thing extraordinarily well. However much I may dislike some of its combat quirks, I think my favorite may be BRP, the percentile system behind Call of Cthulhu. I particularly like the way in which a PC improves their skills between sessions, by rolling to fail any skills they successfully employed on their previous outing. It seems very organic and encourages players to actually use their skills. With the release of The Strange, we’ll get to see just how versatile the Cypher System is, and it may become my favorite in short order.

John – Eclipse Phase
(Reading Call of Cthulhu 7th ed and I really like it!)

Landan – Pathfinder by Paizo

Megan – I really love Numenera. I can’t wait for my copy of The Strange to arrive!

Shaunna – It’s hard to pick one, so far. There are different things that I enjoy about different games–so, I enjoy the simple gameplay and character creation of Numenera…I enjoy the ability to play a fun Fiasco game on a whim…I love the character that I’ve been able to create in Pathfinder.

#RPGaDay Day 17: Funniest Game you’ve played

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 17, our question is what is the funniest game you’ve played?

Aser – I suppose Fiasco has led to the most laughs for me, but the TRF crew can be relied upon to extract humor from the oddest, not to mention the darkest, places you can imagine. Funniest session was Bookhounds of London.

Ashleigh – Fiasco wins this one by a mile!

John – TOON by Steve Jackson. My cousin was a crazed duck named Zagnut who hated pickles and I was Polly NoBeard a turtle pirate. Fun game!

Landan – I think the Renaissance Fair themed Fiasco playset that was made by The Redacted Files own Ashleigh Shadowbrook and friend Stephanie Kingston. I think we broke the limit on the amount of innuendo one could tolerate without losing sanity.

Megan – The funniest game I’ve played is when I got super wasted and GM-ed, which involved me allowing a player to re-roll a one. I don’t remember much past that. I think I’ve had the most fun playing Final Girl though, I love horror movies and horror movie tropes.

Shaunna – Fiasco with Ash Shadowbrook, Nika Howard, Nicole Weaver, and Dean Thompson–even though we never finished the story, we had a fierce rivalry between fortunetellers, spirit bear grease, potential romance, and a real-life appearance of a Tim Horton’s during the Google Hangout

#RPGaDay Day 16: Game you wish you owned

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 16, our question is what is the game you wish you owned?

Aser – But I want so many…! I think at the top of the list would be Edge of the Empire, or pretty much any Star Wars RPG, something that frustrates me because the game is out, but not available in a format I can enjoy. But I also want some of the now out of print licensed stuff like Star Trek, Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica. The Warhammer family of games also holds a great deal of appeal. Oh yeah, and Trail of Cthulhu, right John?

John – Probably ‘Trail of Cthulhu’ or ‘Night’s Black Agents’

Megan – Since Aser got me Laundry Files recently, I have to go with The Dresden Files.

Shaunna – The Strange–grrr–I preordered the deluxe corebook and my order has been “glitched” and “cancelled”, so I’m envious of the people who are starting to get their copies in the mail!

#RPGaDay Day 15: Favorite Convention Game

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 15, our question is what is your favorite convention game?

Aser – I haven’t done con games, though think they could be a lot of fun.

John – never been to a Con. Maybe next year?

Landan – At Geekly Con 2014 playing in a Pathfinder Game DM’d by The Redacted Files own Nika Howard, and a Call of Cthulhu game DM’d by Veronica and Josh of Cthulhu and Friends. It may not have been a true convention but I am counting it.

Megan – Same as earlier, never been to one

Shaunna – Never been to a convention–maybe GeeklyCon2015?

#RPGaDay Day 13: Most Memorable Character Death

TRF is taking part in #RPGaDay! We’ll answer each question as a group, and would love to hear your responses as well, here or on Twitter.

For August 13, our question is what is your most memorable character death?

Aser – My favorite character death is still my first, where I manipulated the situation to draw attention away from my character’s lover by falsely admitting his guilt. That was fun.

John – My first game of 1st Ed AD&D, my half-orc assassin found a magic spear three rooms into the dungeon; threw it to test it out. DM random roll proved it to be a cursed spear of back-biting and it came back around and killed me!

Landan – The death of Tum Darkblade on the Drunks & Dragons podcast, and then every character Veronica the GM for Cthulhu & Friends podcast has killed or taken control over. I think Xander and Anya were my favorites on how they ended. You didn’t specify it had to be a character I played which would be none.

Megan – I’ve never had one of my characters die, and have only killed one PC. So I’ll go with TRF’s episode of Final Girl, Dead Wrong. I loved the deaths on the catwalk, the creepy inescapable doom.

Shaunna – I haven’t had any character deaths!
