Gamemaster! I Choose You! – RPGaDay 2022

The question is: Who would you like to Gamemaster for you? Matt Mercer. I just want to see him GM “unplugged” and do so in a way that resonates with me. Critical Role has such a following, but after several attempts to get into it, I haven’t clicked. He’s clearly a performer and an individual…

6 Roleplaying Games You Should Try – RPGaDay 2022

The question was: Roll 1d8+1, and tag that many friends and suggest a new RPG to try. But, I hate being tagged or intrusively engaging people in social media activities, so instead: Suggest 1d8+1 RPGs to try, it is. I rolled a 5, so I will be suggesting 6 RPGs. I’m not saying that they’re…

Why I Started Roleplaying – RPGaDay 2022

It’s been covered in the last few posts, but initially, I was just getting out of the rain and looking to spend that time inside doing something other than practising the trombone!

If I Could Live in a Game Setting – RPGaDay 2022

The question is: If I could live in a game setting, where would it be? When I first picked up Cyberpunk 2013, back at the start of the 90s, there was something about Night City that appealed. On a very real level, I’m not keen on body modification. I mean, I don’t have tattoos or…

My Second RPG Purchase – RPGaDay 2022

The question is: What is the second RPG that I bought? That’s a tough one. When I started gaming, I didn’t have any money to spend on games. The games I played were the ones that someone else bought for me. My parents got me the Middle Earth Role Playing game (MERP) for my birthday,…

Recruiting to Roleplaying – RPGaDay 2022

The question is: How would I get more people playing RPGs? Tough question. I think the best thing existing gamers can do is to make their games accessible. We can get more people playing as long as we don’t make roleplaying seem like a degree-level course or a magic ritual. Yes, many roleplaying games can…
