RPGaDay in August - August 28th: Inspiring Gaming Excellence

We continue on with #RPGaDay in August.



Day 28 - Share whose inspiring game excellence you're grateful for.

Difficult question for me.

I would have to say that the person who's game excellence I admire and am grateful for the most is Robin D. Laws. Robin has done a lot of work on various games and is an active podcaster as well. Robin's stuff is just superb, and he really gets into the underpinnings of rpg design, play, and GMing. And his writing is superb!

'Nuff said.

My GenCon Haul (Sort of) and New Dice

Thought I should mention that my haul of GenCon 2018 arrived in snail mail a couple of days ago. My friend, T.R. Knight, picked the stuff up for me at the convention, and I owe him my thanks for that. (He's already been paid for the goods, and the shipping to Canada (the latter was absolutely vicious and ridiculous, but that's the way shipping to Canada is these days).)

There are a couple of extra sets of Torg Eternity dice in that haul, and the copy of Capharnaüm - The Tales of the Dragon-Marked is signed by Sarah Newton. :)

In addition, today a set of ten 20-sided dice arrived in the snail mail as well.

While I have plenty of old, standard d20s lying around in my various bags and margarine containers of dice, I realised that if I'm going to run and play some of the Modiphius 2d20 Momentum game systems, I wanted a separate batch of those dice (since you need up to 5 d20s). So this was a good buy for a few bucks.
