The #RPGaDAY writing prompt for today is “How do you find out about new roleplaying games?” — a question I don’t have a good answer for. I mean, I used to read message forums and know about cool things that way. I also used to enter the neighborhood bookstore and stumble across something new. This is how I found out about Shadowrun, through a copy of Bug CityÂ sitting on a shelf at a Hastings in a slowly-dying mall in Bryan, Texas. It’s also how I found out aboutÂ 7th Sea. (But that was at a used bookstore, a month or two after I discoveredÂ Shadowrun, so my big college era game was more cyberpunky than swashbuckly.)
I guess these days it’s social media.
Well, that and working on layout for books then getting told what’s coming out down the line but I can’t tell anyone about it until the company makes an announcement.
