That’s actually pretty easy. As the guy who has run games set in the Viking age, the Roman Empire, and 25th Dynasty Egypt, history is my favourite inspiration. Even for games that are not historical – like our epic Middle Earth campaign – huge amounts of it are informed by history, be that events, personages, or culture.
History, muthafugga. Dig it.
#RPGaDAY2015 is the brainchild of game designer Dave Chapman. Basically, each day in August there is a question about RPGs.
