I’m skipping a couple of entries in RPGaDAY because I just don’t have an answer. Both Day #10: Largest in-game surprise you have experienced? and Day #11: Which gamer most affected the way you play? – well, they’re drawing a blank.
I have not, to my recollection, ever had any in-game surprise launched on me, nor have I launched. I might be wrong, but if I am it mustn’t have been a very memorable experience.
Of gamers affecting the way I play, I really don’t like playing. When I GM, I do it the way I do. I imagine I have picked things up from over the years, but I couldn’t tell you a name of someone in particular. If I have seen someone run a game a certain way, I might try it. I don’t read stacks of gamer advice or following anyone’s YouTube stream. So, no – nothing coming on that one.
RPGaDay Day #12 asks: What game is your group most likely to play next? Why?
Who knows. Honestly.
I get it that many people have regular campaigns that run for weeks, months or years, but I haven’t. I’m quite thankful to turn up each week and find enough players to run a game.
The prospect of something long term, an actual campaign, seems rather nice, but unlikely.
The upshot, we play something new every other week most of the time. What game comes next – it might be easier to consider what I have planned for the next 6 months.
All being well, I’d like to run:
- The Dracula Dossier
- The Dee Sanction
- Beyond the Gates of Antares
- Dragon Age
- The Cthulhu Hack
That’s probably enough for the time being! The Dracula Dossier should be something more long term with a return now and then. Dragon Age has already become my long term go to – with more than half-a-dozen adventure passed so far.
The rest – well, Symbaroum and The Cthulhu Hack will have more than one outing at conventions and the local club, too.
