Quick #RPGaDay2021

Today’s prompt is quick and I must be as the sun sets. Every game session from the time I was twelve, all those many decades past, have flown by so quick. From marathon sessions lasting more than 20 hours to lightning round games in 30 minutes… all have felt fleeting, which says a lot about…

Substitute #RPGaDay2021

22 days into RPGaDay and we are confronted with the immutable Sunday selection — Substitute. As I went to sleep last night I was wondering how I would address the prompt. Then I slipped into a dream. My son and I were at Gen Con, presenting a new RPG we had designed. The game, called…

Fear #RPGaDay2021

I’ve looked once more to fate to divine the prompt for this Saturday’s RPGaDay response. That word, selected by the very gods of chance is fear. Oh, if I but had more time to wax on the subject that comes to mind, for in truth I believe the success of any roleplaying adventure comes down…

Lineage #RPGaDay2021

Twenty days now into RPGaDay for 2021. It’s flying by so fast. Looking at the four words, and with little time to spend on any of them, I think I’ll address lineage. Lineage is defined as lineal descent from an ancestor; ancestry or pedigree. In relation to rpgs, all of us who run games often…

Day 19 of #RPGaDay2021

It’s late and I’ve not yet addressed today’s prompt. Apologies . I guess it’s been the theme of the month. It’s really been a perfect storm that’s been cramping my style. What I need is a patron, someone who would allow me the freedom to create full time. But that is a fool’s errand. We…

Writing #RPGaDay2021

Day 18. Man, time is flying. Not only are we on the 18th word prompt, but I have a pressing deadline that is looming large. Which is ironic considering the day’s prompt is WRITING. Which is what I should be doing. Like right now. So, what are we writing? Well, to be honest, we can’t…

Redmon’s Requeim: Sessions 8 & 9 — Kiss of the Spider

Exploring the caverns beneath Avignon further, looking for a different egress out, the party found another path deeper into the caves instead. Not wanting to delve into even greater depths, they soon found themselves without a choice — trapped by a gelatinous sphere, they fought off bloodsucking bats, before Kari stumbled into the yawning cavern…

Trap #RPGaDay2021

No time today, so extra brief. The prompt for the 17th day of RPGaDay is Trap. I used to love elaborate traps in my games, but players were rarely fond of them. Too much thinking involved, I presume. May have to dust off some oldies but goodies and see how they like them now.

Tribute #RPGaDay2021

We’re past the halfway point for this year’s RPGaDay extravaganza. This has been a hectic month for me, thus most of my responses have been painfully brief, and today will be no exception. I will toss the die, however, and see what fate would have me make a pithy comment about. [rolls die] A 4……
