RPG-a-Day Catch-up: Days 11-17

Day #11 – Weirdest RPG Owned
Weirdest RPG Owned, That’s a tough one. I don’t consider any of the RPGs I won to be really weird. So while Weird War II actually has WEIRD in the title. I think CthulhuTech actually gets the nod as the strangest. Combining the Horror of the Mythos and The ability to fight them with Mecha and Guyvers effectively. Very strange, yet very cool.

Day#12 – Old RPG you still read/play 
Paranoia, Originally published while I was still in high school, this is still the most fun game that I still get to play. I own the 2nd edition box, but run the MGP publishing XP edition. Runner up is Earthdawn,

Day#13 – Most memorable Character Death
We were playing Black Hand low generation vampires in VtM. I can't for the life of me remember the character's name; something Toreador-esque.  We entered into the enemies hideout, and were attacked by an Abomination, I utterly botched my dodge roll and had my neck broken, and then impacted the steel door killing my 10th generation vampire in 1 attack...

 Day#14 – Best Convention Purchase

Day#15 – Favorite Convention Game
Paranoia is normally my favorite, but I got to play FATE Day after Ragnarok with Morgan Ellis and Ian at OrcCon this year. I got to play Frank Frazetta, young barbarian!! Ian was playing the Grease Monkey...Cailey.. I remember leaping from our moving truck onto the pursuing vehicle running across and lopping the head off the man on the Machinegun pintle mount with a single swing. Frank Frazetta also made a deal for a case nitroglycerin.

FATE is such a great game when you have the right people playing. It's a great game for 1-shots as well.

Day#16 – Game I wish I owned.
I guess I wish I had my Elfquest box set back. When I was clearing out games when I was low on cash, that was one that went.We're all big fans of ElfQuest to this day.

Day#17 – Funniest game I’ve played
Paranoia, one of the most fun games to actually play at a convention. You don’t need to know the rules, in fact, you’re not supposed to know the rules. There’s no rules lawyering, just plain old backstabbing fun.
