#RPGaDay Days 1-8

I mentioned in the last post that I had been contributing to the #RPGaDay discussion suggested by David Chapman.   I've been posting them to my G+ feed.  I'm 8 days in now I thought I'd post them here as well.


Day 1 and 2 
First RPG Played and First RPG Game-mastered.
Both of these were the same game the Moldvay D&D set.  You can read more about my first RPG game in my last post.

 

Day 3 
First Rpg Purchased.  The AD&D players handbook.  It was $9 at Toys R Us.



Day 4 Most Recent RPG purchase.  I buy a ridiculous number of RPG PDFs.  Drive-Thru RPG is PDF-crack. On this day I bought The Wizardarium of Calibraxis, an excellent DCC adventure/source book.






Day 5 
Most Old School RPG owned.  Swords and Wizardry. Accept no substitute. DCC wins a close second but I really consider it a new-school RPG created in the old school style. If that makes any kind of sense.




 
Day6 
Favorite game that you never get to play. The Dresden Files RPG.  Huge fan of this system but I'm going to have to play it somewhere before I try and run it.  I don't quite "get it" when it comes to FATE yet.  





Day 7
Most "intellectual" game owned. This is a hard one. I chose Mage the Ascension. The idea of consensual reality sent me in all kinds of new directions.  It also made me finally read "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance."  I own nearly every book for 1st edition Mage and to this day have never played it. I always found the Technocracy more compelling than the Traditions.


Day 8
Favorite Character.   This one is easy.  Rexor, my Humakt Initiate from Runequest (2nd Edition.)  My first RPG character that lasted more than one or two games. I still have his character sheet.  He never made it to Runelord.   I imagine him still out there somewhere, exploring the Big Rubble.
