#RPGaDay 2016 – Day 7

Rob Kalajian tabletop 0 Comments

What aspect of RPGs has had the most effect on you? The best thing about RPGs is the social aspect. People coming together to tell a story together and have a great time. RPGs have always filled a social need in my life. Playing at a friend’s house. Playing at camp since I wasn’t much into sports. Telling stories with …

Most amazing thing a game group did for their community? This is going to be a short one today, mostly because none of any game group I’ve been part of has done anything for the community as a group. We’ve all done our own things, whether it be donating time, money, or items in need, but never anything as a …

What story does your group tell about your character? Back in high school my friends and I played World of Darkness games for a while. Mostly Vampire and Werewolf. While Vampire was our go to game that I usually GM’d, we would sometimes take a night to let one of my other friends GM a Werewolf story. This kid was …

Most impressive thing another’s character did? Yesterday’s post had a lot to do with the story I’m going to write today. I gave a very vague overview of what transpired, but gave no detail. Let me shed some light on the experience. The problem player in our AD&D 2nd Edition game was becoming a bigger and bigger problem. Eventually he …

Kickstarter – Elemental Mystics

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

Another Kickstarter pick, already? Yes. Already. Just look this game. I didn’t even look up how it’s played before I backed the project. I backed it purely on it’s design. Of course I went back and watched the “How to Play” video right after to make sure I didn’t make a horrible mistake. It’s a bit over the top, but …

Character moment you’re proudest of? Today’s prompt is a tough one, mostly because it ties in with tomorrow’s “Most impressive thing another’s character did?” I guess I can give an overview today, and get into the gory details tomorrow. The session was back in ‘99. We had gotten a group together at college to play AD&D 2nd Edition in my …

Best gaming session since August 2015? Like I stated in my first #RPGaDay post, I don’t play many RPGs anymore. It’s something I’m hoping to fix, but I need to find the time, the system, and the people to play. That being said, I still had a few experiences over the past year to draw from for the this question. …

Kickstarter – Pages of War

Rob Kalajian kickstarter 0 Comments

Pages of War is a game I previously previewed on Purple Pawn, and has just hit Kickstarter. There’s been a few changes since I’ve played, but apparently nothing so major that my impressions of the game should differ in any way. In the game you’re a bard telling the story of one of four great races: The Men of Blue …
