#RPGaDAY 2017, Day 15: Adapting a Game

Wow. Let's see. I was at Gen Con and didn't get ahead on my #RPGaDAY posts. Where did I leave off? Day fifteen? Okay, then. The topic for that day is "Which RPG do you enjoy adapting the most?"

What was the very saddest thing you wrote on an index card? and What is your fondest memory of a game you thought was fun before you knew better?

How much of it did you actually use? Well now! Continue reading “#RPGaDAY 2016, Day 18: Using Relationship Maps” »...
