#RPGaDAY - Portal

A couple of years back now an RPG terrain crafter made a portal miniature that I always meant to replicate. It used an iPhone to create the swirling portal effect. I thought that was brilliant. The phone also produced ethereal music and ambiance.
#RPGaDAY - Lever

I don't have much for this one. Lever makes me think of Leverage which leads me to the Leverage RPG, which uses Cortex Plus which leads me to my favourite superhero game Marvel Heroic Roleplaying.

Still really bummed it got cancelled so quickly.
#RPGaDAY - Investigate

I used to hate running investigations due to the dead-end problem.

I think it's awesome that Robin Laws came up with a solution in the Gumshoe series of games. Finally no more game halts due to a missed clue.

Now if only I could find time and a group to run one :D
#RPGaDAY - Tower

Okay, it's not quite an RPG but it did have RPG elements. The word Tower immediately made me think of this Gem from my childhood: Dark Tower. No, I didn't back the new Kickstarter but I wish I would have had the money to do so.
#RPGaDAY - Comfort

One of the games that pushed me the most out of my comfort zone was Desperation of Atlantis a Protocol RPG where I played a gay Merfolk.

It was run by the awesome Wen Reischl and He did an amazing job making everyone comfortable. This opened a lot of new doors for me.
#RPGaDay - Light

Light is one of those things I don't want to deal with in RPGs anymore. How many torches do you have? Is that a bullseye lantern or a regular one. What's the difference between dark vision and infravision. Nowadays light is a plot device, not a game mechanic.
#RPGaDay - Shade

One of the things I dislike the most about the RPG community is the number of people who seem to find far too much joy in throwing shade at other people. Either the games they play or the way they are playing them.

If you and everyone else at the table are having fun you are playing the right game the right way.
#RPGaDay - Forest

This prompt brought to mind one of the best looking pieces of wargame scenery I ever made. A forest with a removable section so it could be used as two forests or to make room for an army moving through it. Here are some pictures of that piece of scenery.
#RPGaDay - Vision

Vision is becoming a big issue for me in regards to RPGs as I get older. My eyes are starting to suck. I can now read without my glasses up close great but need to hold things at arms length with them on. So reading books now means swapping back and forth between in close without my glasses and at arms length with them on.

Tabletop QOTD 2020-07-31

Borrowing from the idea of the Pluspora Check-in get some tabletop conversation going. If you have any questions that you want to get on the list to be asked, let me know. Also, if you'd like to be added or taken off the list of participants, let me know.

Are you going to participate in this year's #RPGaDAY event

More of a direct RPG question; you can read about it at https://www.autocratik.com/2020/06/announcing-rpgaday2020.html

The basic idea is to keep up with writer's prompts to get creative and post something daily. I'm sure some of it will leak in here.

I'm planning to try to keep up, but not sure how that's going to work out, especially since I'll be moving towards the end of the month.
