Day 31 of #RPGaDay2019: Last

At long last, we take the final step in our quest to celebrate positivity in the RPG community by way of RPGaDay. 31 days filled with provocative and often challenging word prompts. Today’s word… the final word for 2019… is a fitting one. The word is LAST. The first thing that came to mind was…

Day 30 of #RPGaDay2019: Connection

The penultimate day of RPGaDay for 2019. Let’s take a deep breath and get through this. Tomorrow’s a big day. So what do we have for our next to last word prompt? CONNECTION. That which connects the characters to one another in my campaigns has always been a priority. Some players are totally invested in…

Day 29 of #RPGaDay2019: Evolve

Evolution is a part of our very being. We are constantly transitioning from where we’ve been to where we are. In seeps into every fiber of our being, every sing facet of our lives. Games are no different. Welcome to Thursday, the 29th of August, and the last gasp of 2019’s RPGaDay conversation. It comes…

Day 28 of #RPGaDay2019: Love

Wednesday the 28th in the year 2019 and we have nearly reached the end of conversation. I have always been fond of the RPGaDay exploration, but this year has been the best yet. The freedom of the word prompt has elevated this examination of why we love RPGs to new heights, and for that I…

Day 27 of #RPGaDay2019: Suspense

Day 27 in our RPG conversation brings to a word prompt I have been anticipating since the 2019 iteration of RPGaDay was announced. That word is… wait for it… SUSPENSE. sus·pense /səˈspens/ noun: a state or feeling of excited or anxious uncertainty about what may happen. If any singular word best describes the roleplaying experience,…

Day 26 of #RPGaDay2019: Idea

Less than a week remains in 2019’s RPGaDay. As our conversation nears its end we have a number of interesting word prompts to carry us over the finish line. Today’s word is IDEA. No roleplaying game is perfect, in part because they try to be all things to all people. Way back in the 20th…

Day 25 of #RPGaDay2019: Calamity

Today marks the last Sunday post of 2019’s RPGaDay and the 25th day of our month long RPG conversation. Today’s word prompt is CALAMITY and, I’ve got to admit, from the first moment I read the word, my mind conjured up a single image that it wouldn’t let go. Calamity Jane was a hard-as-nails frontier…

Day 24 of #RPGaDay2019: Triumph

The 24th day of 2019’s RPGaDay is upon us, the penultimate Saturday in our RPG conversation. It has been a different experience so far this year, and that’s a good thing. Gone are the same old questions we’ve been asked to answer. The word prompts have allowed Autocratik’s quest for positivity in the gaming community…

Day 23 of #RPGaDay2019: Surprise!

Welcome to the 23rd day of RPGaDay for 2019. Today’s word prompt is SURPRISE. Let’s take a look at surprise in the 5th Edition of D&D. This is an often misunderstood and misinterpreted rule. Some think of it as a special round or a condition. It is neither. It is more akin to an ‘environment’…

Day 22 of #RPGaDay2019: LOST

Day 22 of 2019’s RPGaDay brings us to the word prompt LOST and while many may be inclined to blog about lost civilizations or old mechanics lost and forgotten by time’s advance, I want to use this as an opportunity to bring up one of my favorite televison series. And yes, I loved the ending….
