RPGaDay 2020 prompt 11 – Stack

I present to you a stack of various RPGs from my shelves! And some dice too! I tried to grab a mixed bag, pulling from various places. So, we have: Hillfolk - sadly unplayed but backed immediately in Kickstarter. I loved the idea, and especially the ideas for the alternate settings presented at the end … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 11 – Stack

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 10 – Want

Ah yes, the want list. So, in an ideal world, where money and storage are no issue, here's a short list of some of the products I'd love to have on my shelves but sadly don't: - D&D Planescape boxed set (or all of them really)D&D Al Qadim boxed setD&D Lankmar boxed setD&D 2e all … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 10 – Want

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 9 – Light

I'd love to talk a bit about rule-light rules systems today, but I realised that I really haven't played that many. The closest I could say I've come to is FATE, but even then I've played very crunchy versions (Dresden Files and my Sands of FATE games included). So instead, I'm going to talk about … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 9 – Light

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 8 – Shade

I've always been intrigued by the idea of Augmented Reality as viewed through a set of shades. Way back in the before, in the ancient times, the idea of mirrorshades was just to hide one's eyes from view, but gradually shades and spex innovated.We had Google Glass for a little while. When's the last time … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 8 – Shade

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 7 – Couple

I wasn't sure what to talk about for this prompt, but I had a couple of ideas!(I'll wait for your delighted guffawing to subside...) I'm currently working on a couple of new things. First, I'm trying to pull together some ideas for a Planescape adventure involving Saurials.Saurials are basically Dino-people who had been used as … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 7 – Couple

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 6 – Forest

A lot of my homebrew settings feature forests in a prominent role. I'm not entirely sure why that is - maybe it's a western fantasy trope that's stuck in my head? (Murkwood?) Cambria is similar in some ways to Dark Sun, but very different in others. It's a planet-wide (ish) cityscape that's fallen into disrepair … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 6 – Forest

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 5 – Tribute

Sometimes I feel like I try too hard to pay tribute to the 'big' campaign worlds with what I'm writing. Faerûn or Eberron or Greyhawk. It shouldn't bee too difficult to write out an entire world with all kinds of stuff going on right? Other people have done it before, right?! Yeah, silly really.I rarely … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 5 – Tribute

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 4 – Vision

So, it seems like everyone has darkvision? It's a complaint I've seen people bring up a lot. At this stage, off the top of my head, Humans and Halflings don't have it, but most people do. So... how do we beat the complaint? There's options, certainly.Do I want to make the game harder? Maybe. I'm … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 4 – Vision

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 3 – Thread

I finally got around to setting up an account for The Piazza webforum. As a resource, I can't recommend it enough. It's full of some great boards covering all kinds of topics and settings, with some great threads to read through (and no actually comment on). That's all I have for this post! Haha!

RPGaDay 2020 prompt 2 – Change

Times change, things change, rules change. It's weird that we'd have to spell that out. So, I'm going to ignore the pretty obvious 'changes in D&D' topic for now, since I've covered it recently. I'm going to use this prompt to look at different ideas I've had and how they might affect changes to stuff … Continue reading RPGaDay 2020 prompt 2 – Change

Another month of RPGaDay in August

O know, I know, I only finished up RPGaDay 2019 this month, but I actually caught it early enough that I can jump on during the month this time! So, starting tomorrow, I'll be back to one post a day for the month of August. Hopefully I'll manage to keep that going!
