#RPGaDay Days 9 and 10


Day 9 

Favorite set of Dice

I don't really have a favorite set of dice.  I think players have favorite dice.  I'm a GM at heart, and pretty much the worst player ever.  My dice are the "Dice of Death" according to my players, and it doesn't really matter what ones I use.  I do like this specific die. I use it for random hit locations for all my games.  


Day 10
Favorite Novel/Game Fiction

Wow this is a hard one.  Back in my younger years, the Dragonlance series re-kindled my interest in D&D and I love Troy Denning's Dark Sun Books.  If I am being honest though I have to give it to The Laundry Files novels by Charles Stross. In this case the RPG is based on the novels but it's somewhat circular.  In the afterword to the first novel the author acknowledges Delta Green even though he didn't base the novels on it.

 "All I can say in my defence is... I hadn't heard of Delta Green when I wrote The Atrocity Archive... I'll leave it at that except to say that Delta Green has come dangerously close to making me pick up the dice again."  - Charles Stross from the afterword of The Atrocity Archive

Great minds think alike in my opinion.
