Day 28: Favorite game I no longer play
My Favorite game that I no longer play is Hackmaster Basic. When our group first came together it was led by a GM who was (and still is) a hardcore Hackmaster fan. We played Hackmaster 4th edition and then switched to Hackmaster Basic as soon as it came out. Our GM moved and I took over, starting a new campaign using Hackmaster Basic. We played that game for three years.
There are a lot of fun memories that we built with Hackmaster Basic. There are also mechanics that I liked, such as rolling for defense instead of using an armor class. There are also some mechanics that I don't miss, such as shield rules. Hackmaster Basic strikes me as the OSR game for the sophisticated gamer. I enjoyed it but I don't think I can play it anymore. There are just other fantasy rpgs that I would rather play. It is a good game and you can download it for free.
Day 29: Favorite rpg website/blog
Rpggeek.com. I use this website every day. I've played in play by forum games on it, I read game news, I have downloaded games, and I use it to keep track of my ever growing collection.
Day 30: favorite rpg playing celebrity.
Vin Diesel, becuase he got Dame Judy Dench to play D&D
Day 31: Favorite non-RPG thing to come out of RPGing
The Wild Cards series. I read that George R. R. Martin was playing in a Superworld campaign with his friends that inspired the Wild Cards series of books. I have only read the first one but it is genius.
And that is it for the month of August 2015. #RPGaDAY 2015 was fun and I look forward to next year.
