RPGaDAY2015 the Catchup

Okay, so I saw a bunch of people doing this and it looked kind of fun, so I totally lemming’d onto the bandwagon.

RPGaDAY2015 is the brainchild of game designer Dave Chapman. Basically, each day in August there is a question about RPGs. I’m going to play catch-up first and then look at day 9’s question.

1. Forthcoming game you’re most looking forward to: I’m going to have to cheat at some of these because I’m not really looking forward to anything except High Plains Samurai, and I am part of that playtest. That cool?

2. Kickstarted game most pleased you backed: Fate Core because Fate Accelerated is a Fate version I can finally get 100% behind.

3. Favourite new game of the last 12 months: Discounting my own game and High Plains Samurai (technically been in development for more than 12 months) I’d have to go with Urban Shadows. Yeah, it probably should have been the answer to #2 as well, but I wanted to give Fate Accelerated some love. While I don’t run Powered by the Apocalypse games, that’s because I’m kind of always playtesting. Urban Shadows totally rocks for modern urban fantasy, and I think one could build some really incredible games with it.

4. Most Surprising Game: I’m going to go with Short Order Heroes, found at Gen Con and reviewed here. It’s a game I knew I wanted in the back of my head, but seeing it in action was kind of an epiphany.

5. Most Recent RPG Purchase: If we don’t count dice for my daughters, it would have to be Jason Morningstar’s Night Witches. So awesome.

6. Most Recent RPG player: I’m going with played as opposed to ran, and that would be Cartel, Mark Diaz Truman’s Power by the Apocalypse game of narcogangs in Mexico. Very cool.

7. Favourite Free RPG: Absolutely without a doubt Old School Hack, though Lady Blackbird is awesome on so many level.

8. Favourite appearance of RPGs in the Media: Do I have one? I guess the D&D episode on Community, though I had some issues with how they altered mechanics and messed up the drama. I wrote about that here.

Okay, next post I’ll look at day 9.
