Our last immutable Sunday for the RPGaDay season. The word is system. I’ve played lots of rileplaying systems — diceless, 2d20, percentile, d6s, coin flips and the like… I always come running back to d20.
I love different sorts of games and different mechanics involved in the chance arena… but the 20-sided die is an iconic roll, that system is bloody hardwired into my soul.
Hell, I tried creating d10 system for The Occult Detective RPG. It didn’t take. Why? Because nostalgia is a cruel mistress.
