Alas my weekend went the way of most weekends in August, September, and October and was consumed by the evil that is soccer. So today I will try and catch up with the #RPGaDay effort and then tomorrow perhaps have more words to share…

  • d30Favorite Die (Day 9) – See to the right. My d30 looks similar to this one and has been used since college to cause death and destruction when no other die will quite do it. I never use it as a player, but try and find many opportunities to use it as a GM. (And if you need reasons to do just that, can I recommend the d30 Sandbox Companion from New Big Dragon Games Unlimited? It’s awesome.)
  • Favorite tie-in novel or game fiction (Day 10) – This one is harder. Like many, I was a child of the 1980s and became drawn into the world of Dragonlance as a gamer and avid fantasy reader. The first series with its taut storytelling, costs of magic, and Kinders still affects my own storytelling tendencies to this very day.
  • But “Weirdest RPG owned” (Day 11) is a weird one itself. All RPGs are weird in one way or another. I would be hard pressed to talk about the weirdness of TOON vs. the strangeness of anything Cthulhu-related honestly, so will just say that ALL my games are weird largely because I bought them and wanted to play them… isn’t that enough? 🙂

Sorry this is a short form post today but like I said – hopefully I can return back to some sense of normalcy tomorrow. 🙂

(By the way, I’m hoping to return to a more normal posting pattern next month and have a few cool new products for Moebius Adventures. I’m working on a new Insta-NPCs product for artists and another for undead, so we’ll see how this all plays out. In the meantime, I’m having fun exploring my gaming roots with #RPGaDay!)

    I don’t really have a favorite die. I do like the Dragon Age d6s I picked up recently.

    For favorite rpg-related novel tie in, I have 2 series and one book:
    – The Maragret Weis and Tracy Hickman DragonLance trilogies they did.
    – The Michael Stackpole books that he did for Battletech
    – 2XS by Nigel Findley for Shadowrun

    Another D&D flavored goodie that actually isn’t specifically for D&D is Goblin Quest by Jim C. Hines.

    For weirdest RPG owned … errm … honestly, no idea. Maybe this one that I only skimmed once and have buried somewhere. http://greenroninstore.com/collections/pdfs/products/the-red-star-campaign-setting-pdf (got it in an ultra cheap sale)
