#RPGaDay2015 31: Favorite non-RPG thing to come out of RPGing

autocratik topic grid

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 31, What is your favorite non-RPG thing to come out of RPGing?
Aser:
Megan and Aser engagement photo
Chuck: My wife, LARPing actually but I will count it.
John: Friendship with Aser, Megan, Rob, basically anyone I game with on @TRFpodcast! Also ‘The Ancient Ones’ in our all-star Skype Cthulhu games: Shep, Shannon Mac, Ed and John.
Jonn: My two sons… okay maybe not both of them. Definitely the first one though… The second one was more likely the result of alcohol. I love you kids! 😀
Landan: Making new friends
Matt: I’ve met a lot of cool people and made some really good friends because of playing RPGs.
Megan: Meeting Aser 😀 He tweeted that he wished he could find a group to play Call of Cthulhu with and I responded, and now I have a wonderful fiance.
Patrick: At the risk of sounding sexist, Chainmail Garments. Most people stop at the bikini, but the chain main halter top is also a thing. I can’t imagine the chafing, those poor women.
Rob: All the awesome friends I’ve made through gaming!

#RPGaDay2015 30: Favorite RPG playing celebrity

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 30, Who is your favorite RPG playing celebrity?
Aser: Harry Dresden ummm, I guess I mean Jim Butcher.
Chuck: Vin Diesel
John: Vin Diesel maybe.
Jonn: Wil Wheaton. I’m really liking Titansgrave. I probably would have waffled between Vin Diesel and Wil Wheaton otherwise.
Landan: Wil Wheaton
Matt: Stephen Colbert. He is so unapologetically geeky about Lord of the Rings and D&D references. It is a delight to watch.
Megan: Well, Vin Diesel obviously.
Patrick: Brian Posehn
Rob: Tie between Blaine Capatch and Vin Diesel

#RPGaDay2015 29: Favorite RPG website/blog

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 29, What is your favorite RPG website/blog?
Aser: DriveThruRPG 😛
Chuck: DriveThruRPG
John: TheRedactedFiles.com, Twitter.
Jonn: Reality Refracted. A.L. has a very nuanced approached to talking about role-playing games. The post are rarely antagonistic and he doesn’t spend any of his time bashing people like a lot of bloggers do.
Landan: Paizo, Monte Cook Games, TRF, Geekly Inc., and I can’t think of any others off the top my head.
Matt: The Angry GM is a good read for me. I tend to design and plan games in similar ways to him, but he has much more detailed insight into why what he does works. This has helped me understand why I do things the way I do, which in turn has helped me refine my techniques. And, while I don’t visit Penny Arcade or their forum as much as I used to, I got a lot of really good info from there.
Megan: I like Gnome Stew and Tribality quite a bit for advice and news. I also love TRF because it’s my baby 🙂
Patrick: TRF, I really don’t look anywhere else. My plate is usually full of my other gaming vices.
Rob: TRF

#RPGaDay2015 28: Favorite game you no longer play

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 28, What is your favorite game you no longer play?
Aser: It’s hard to believe we haven’t played Eclipse Phase in more than a year, but that’s the sad truth. D20 Modern was fun too, though I’m not sure how those characters would’ve done in the long run.
Chuck: The old DC supers game, the first edition
John: BECMI D&D (might play again soon?) or Marvel.
Jonn: For me, it is D&D 2e/4e. I’ve enjoyed most every version of D&D but recently stopped playing 2e/4e. I have been gravitating towards games like Fate Core and Cortex. I’ve gotten the most enjoyed out of D&D than any other ruleset; however, I slowly gravitated towards simple rulesets that have less rigid systems for combat, skills and (especially) magic systems.
Landan: It has been a long time since I played Saga Ed. Star Wars RPG
Matt: D&D 3.5 did a lot of things very well, and I played it for a long time. While Pathfinder is strictly better in almost every way that matters to me, I had a lot of fun with 3.5.
Megan: WH40k: Rogue Trader. The first RPG I played, and it still has a special place in my heart. I miss Khan, the greatest explorator.
Patrick: Mage: The Awakening
Rob: RIFTS
