#RPGaDAY 2017, Day 1: A Published RPG to Play

The #RPGaDAY event has begun once more! Daily writing prompts about our gaming hobby to spur creativity and share the joy of gaming with friends, family, and complete strangers at conventions and game days! I’ll also be revisiting past questions, but first today’s topic: “What published RPG do you wish you were playing right now?”

Wait, you mean right now, now, on the evening before this goes live while a gentle breeze is sending a light sun shower along the way while I hear our neighbor mowing his back yard and the family is all busy winding down after an emotionally draining day?

#RPGaDAY 2016, Day 12: The Next Game

The actual title of today’s prompt is “What game is your group most likely to play next?” That question makes a few assumptions, the foremost being that one plays in a single group.

Take a look at Rich Rogers.

Or if he does have a game group, he has at least three, each with a revolving cast, maybe some regulars in each. (Rich, don’t tell me.

#RPGaDAY 2016, Day 1: Why do this thing?

It’s the third year of #RPGaDAY, a thing where there’s a roleplaying game-based question a day that’s there for people who enjoy those games to share their thoughts and memories about the hobby. I did the first year on my Google+ account and last year I joined in the fun here at denaghdesign.com ((and revisiting my first year’s questions)). But I had a secret goal. I would have a good thirty minutes of writing time and use RPGaDAY to revitalize my blog. Also, the event would help to get me back into creative writing.

I had a total of two blog posts since then. ((I’d link to them, but you can just use the previous post button right there.))
