RPGaDay is an annual celebration of tabletop roleplaying. This is the first year I’ve tried to do it.
Which RPG have you played the most in your life?
As I said on Day 4, the RPG I’ve played most sessions of is Unknown Armies. But I covered that before, so instead I’m going to talk about the RPGs that I’ve played most different campaigns or settings. That’s much harder, and I’m not sure I know exactly the answer. It could be Fate Core, but I talk about that enough, so instead I’m going to go with Psi*Run and Fiasco.
What makes these games so interesting is that every session is completely unique. For Fiasco, that’s mostly as a result of the playset you use. I can’t remember all of the playsets I’ve ever used, but a few that jump out in my memory are:
For Psi*Run, on the other hand, it’s down to the questions you ask and the order in which you answer them in the game. And that means that Psi*Run can get wild. I’ve had Psi*Run games based in the modern day, which is the default setting, but also I’ve had ones set underground after the apocalypse, or on a spaceship, or ones that hopped reality. Games have ended with player characters being captured, defeating the Chasers, being the Chasers all along, turning into dogs, eating reality, or personally carrying the Sun around the Earth forever. Like I said: wild.
