#RPGaDay2015 26: Favorite Inspiration for your Game

Last year we celebrated Autocratik’s #RPGaDay, where we spend a month celebrating RPGs, discussing what we love and what we love about them. Here are the responses of the TRF crew. Be sure to tweet, blog, or post your own with the #RPGaDay!

For August 26, What is your favorite inspiration for your game?
Aser: My favorite inspiration when planning a scenario is typically a random bit of interpersonal interaction in a larger work of history I’m reading, something humanizing, that can really turn people you’ve never met into someone you care about. I try to bring that into the game. Or when running The Strange, I’ll just open the Bestiary and see what nastiness would be fun to inflict on my players that day. 😛
Chuck: Live play podcasts.
John: Movies, game-inspired fiction, podcasts.
Jonn: Famous Quotes, Ancient History and American History.
Landan: Music, Art, Television, and Movies. The most recent character I created was based off the album cover for Chevelle’s “La Gargola”
Matt: Plato’s Allegory of the Cave provides a lot of potential for a story that evolves over time without resorting to a “twist”.
Megan: I use Aser a lot to bounce ideas off of, and then twist his and my ideas into one mega-idea.
Patrick: Horror films.
Rob: Zombie Movies
