RPGaDay prompt 6 is “favourite game you NEVER get to play”. I’m going to pick Bruce Heard’s Calidar here, a massive new world in three installments (so far).
RPGaDay prompt 5 is “OLDEST game you’ve played”. I take this in three senses - overall game, role-playing game (DnD unsurprisingly), and module.
RPGaDay Day 4 - the most recent game bought - a review of Kobold Press's Wastes of Chaos
Today’s prompt for RPGaDay is First RPG bought this year. This is a tricky one. My first reaction was “I don’t buy new RPGs. I have enough and more to interest me and keep me busy with my D&D campaign.” And then I remembered the whole OGL fiasco which blew up over Christmas and prompted … Continue reading RPGaDay Day 3 First RPG bought (this year)
Today’s prompt for RPGaDay is First RPG GAMEMASTER. Maybe I’ll answer this in two ways. My first dungeon master, as I said a few years back, was a friend who had the classic B2 Keep on the Borderlands.

A quick follow-up to Creativity sprees incoming – World Anvil Summer Camp and RPGaDay. The first batch prompts of WorldAnvil summer camp were released last night during their Twitch stream and on their blog. It appears the numbers of prompts in each group have changed. The copper batch contains eight prompts rather than the previous … Continue reading WorldAnvil Summer Camp copper prompts
One of the things I remember when I first acquired the Dungeons and Dragons basic set was spending hours poring over the treasure tables in the Dungeon Masters Rulebook - in particular row H, the row of the dragons. For each type of treasure, it lists the chance of it being present as a percentage, … Continue reading Treasure – realistically, it’s messy
Okay, a slightly unusual, off-topic post this time. We've been living with lockdown in the UK for two months now, and it's been rather longer since my last post, so I thought it time to put fingers to keyboard again. Last year was looking good. I smashed it with RPGaDay and managed to get 31 … Continue reading Coping
