Each year we celebrate 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 27, what is the most unusual circumstance or location in which you’ve gamed?
Aser – I’ve almost always gamed over an online interface. On one occasion though, I really played 5E on an actual kitchen table.
John D. – I got up at 3 am on my off day while deployed to the desert to run Black Crusade for the group; it was supper time for them back home! Aser thought it was funny I had good wifi in my room but had to go three buildings over to use the bathroom.
Jonn P. – I was running a pickup campaign of Keep on the Shadowfell at the local game store when one of the Assistant Directors at my job dropped by with his son to try out D&D. He was playing a paladin and his son a wizard. I had previously planned for the party to fight kobolds and a young brown dragon, a decent challenge for the party’s level. Long story short, during the fight, I was faced with a moral dilemma, the squishy wizard had waded into the frontline, and I had to decide if I would spare the Assistant Director’s kid. I took the only morally correct option for a DM…blind the paladin with the dragon’s breath weapon before crushing the elf wizard in the brown’s claws. The integrity of the Dungeon Master must remain beyond reproach!
Megan – My first game sessions were in a conference room in the middle of a lab at grad school.
Mike G. – In the middle of the sidewalk in downtown Chicago. It was very odd.
Patrick – I’m pretty much a stone sober kind of guy but my most unusal game session invloved people who were coming down from five day speed benders and a lot of reefer.
Phil – On the internet I guess. Or at square dancing.
