Since GenCon 2016 is just around the corner, it’s time to inaugurate the annual tradition started by Dave Chapman (aka autocratik), #RPGaDay. He’s taking a break this year, but Anthony Boyd and the RPGBrigade are stepping in to host this year.
Just like previous years, RPGaDAY is a celebration of everything positive and fun about tabletop roleplaying. The premise is simple – just download the image with all the questions on it from the RPGBrigade site (or the image posted below). Look at the questions, and then, one question per day in August, post something on social media, your blog, anything you like. Just spread the word about how cool RPGing is. If you like, you can share your post on the RPGaDAY page on the RPGBrigade site and they’ll collate everyone’s posts.
Day 1 – Real dice, dice app, diceless, how do you prefer to “roll”?
For me, it’s always real dice. While I know that folks like dice apps and the like, and some gamers favour diceless rpgs, I prefer games that have dice rolls involved. My favourite dice mechanics are simple ones, preferably with only one type of dice. I like games with D6s or D100, or D10s, or a single D20. Any rpg with combinations of different dice just turns me off.
And that’s it for the August 1st question. 🙂
