RPGaDay in August - August 9th: How Has a Game Suprised You?

We continue on with #RPGaDay in August.



Day 9 - How has a game surprised you?

Interesting question.

I think that there are two answers to this one. I think that the Atlantis: The Second Age RPG from Khepera Publishing surprised me in that the game company published three books - the Rulebook, the Geographica (obvious) and the Theragraphica (Bestiary) - and other than a few adventures on and off for the most part, that's it. No more rulebooks, no real expansions on stuff. Just a few adventures with neat bestiary additions and the like. It really is a complete game in and of itself with those three volumes.

The second surprise I've had is two-fold. Both the momentarily to be published Capharnaum - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked RPG (an Arabian Nights fantasy rpg that also borrows from other sources of myth and legend) and the soon to be published John Carter of Mars - The Roleplaying Game (based on Edgar Rice Burroughs's Barsoom novels) have game systems/mechanics that fit well and work perfectly with the two genres that they are emulating. These two games are the ones I've been waiting for for the last 30+ years of my gaming life! :)

'Nuff said on this subject. :)
