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 10, what is the largest in-game surprise you have experienced?

Aser – Listen to our Wicker Man episode. I’d never seen the movie, which should be obvious from the results.
John D. – Hmm… Maybe the whole group surviving our first Only War session? Oh, successfully summoning Azathoth was definitely unexpected!
Jonn P. – The sudden appearance of a deck of many things :/
Megan – I think it tends to be when I kill of characters in games. I have to agree with Phil, Nigel’s death was super shocking for me. Also several deaths in Pathfinder, like Merrick’s.
Mike G. – Wait, the Emperor was a [sorta] good guy (Living Arcanis)?!?
Patrick – I had a GM that liked plot twists more than M. Knight Shyamalan. My biggest surprise was when there was no twist, just a straight forward job.
Phil – Nigel exit stage right? Losing two characters in one session of Scary on the Choo Choo when we were doing so well AND had a tommygun? One of them to another PC during a fight with the actual bad guys?? A PC who was sane when he shot his comrade???
