RPG A Day, 2017
August Sixth (Belated)
Prompt: You can game every day for a week. Describe what you’d do.
I’m not sure if this means “for the rest of your life” or “for one week”. Let’s assume the latter.
Split things up. For three or four days, play through, or GM, something epic… a long adventure in a single system/setting, where there’s a real sense of progress and watching a story unfold and reach a conclusion, though ideally not a preordained or railroaded one.
For the remaining days, play several games that don’t work well as ongoing campaigns — mostly humorous ones, as the mono-focused indie games — where you’re all sea anemones on a reef that is being exposed to the sun as the tide goes out and you all die at the end and your only stats are ‘tenacity’ and ‘salinity’ and the resolution mechanic involves numbered Mexican jumping beans — don’t really appeal to me. Toon, Teenagers From Outer Space, Diana: Warrior Princess, Paranoia, Kobolds Ate My Baby… some set of those or the like.
