You can find my past RPGaDAY2022 catch up posts here in Part One, Part Two, Part Three and Part Four. The last week of August was just as equally busy. In fact this whole summer has been extremely busy or extremely crappy. I have been grateful for the distractions when I get to blog about geeky subjects such as the #RPGaDAY2022 challenge. I’ve got several projects in mind that I want to get put up on this blog to share with my fellow geeks. I look forward to posting them soon. Here are my entries for Days 29-31 and a bonus question.
Day 29: Who would you like to see take part in #RPGaDAY?
I’d love to see what my wife would post in such a challenge. I would also be very interested in how a friend and gamemaster Jeff Sullivan would fair with these questions.
Day 30: What should #RPGaDAY do for its 10th Anniversary next year?
Perhaps run a “Best Of” with subjects from the past ten years? I haven’t ready any of the earlier years.
Day 31: When did you first take part in #RPGaDAY?
2021 was my first year after I had read about the challenge on other gaming blogs. You can read all of the posts from this year and last year here. Specifically from 2021 I was quite proud of these entries: Origin, Memory, Challenge, Flood and Weapon.
Bonus: Anecdote Alternative: Roll 1d8+1, tag that many friends and tell a gaming story about them.
The recent Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 campaign that ran from 2013 to 2019 had many different adventures. But one of the things that probably frustrated our Dungeon Master. If he set up a big bad guy, our party worked like a well oiled machine and quickly defeated the final challenge. However the smallest of opponents would sometimes come up with the biggest threats. I’m not certain what the creature was called, but there were these creatures that looked like gold coins. When they were disturbed, they started to come to life and attacked us. I don’t think we were in danger of a total party kill, but it took quite a while to get the battle under control. Just before they revealed themselves as alive, one of the player characters had picked up a coin and licked it (for reasons I can’t remember now). I think the fact that the coins came to life may have scared that player. This was early in our campaign so she was cautious when we recovered treasure after future victories.
And with that final post, I’m considering myself done with the #RPGaDAY2022 challenge. My second year was a little different than last year. With real life issues, I could not post once a day. While it may not have stayed with the spirit of a once-a-day challenge, I felt like I was participating in the event with what I could. Since next year is the 10th anniversary, I’ll be interested to see what questions/options are presented. Thank you, I hope you enjoyed reading these entries.
