RPG A Day, 2017
August Fourth (Belated)
Which RPG have you played the most since August 2016?
Oh, that’s easy! Blue! I mean, yellow! I mean… augh!
I mean Pathfinder.
Pathfinder’s been my go-to game for a while, in part due to a kind of network externality… my group knows the rules well, we’ve internalized all the quirks, oddities, subsystems, and complexities. The sheer volume of material, official and otherwise, means there’s always a new aspect to explore, be it a class, setting, theme, or environment. (Now, if only there was a set of official “modern day” rules… StarFinder, from what I’ve seen so far, is science-fantasy, close to the earliest incarnation of WH40K, which is perfectly fine, but not a basis for X-Files/Supernatural/Mission Impossible/Cthulhu/Pulp/Etc stuff. I’ve seen some third-party “ModernFinder” variants, but none impressed me much… pro tip: If your editing and grammar is poor, it makes me leery of your mechanics, as both require the same attention to detail.)
