My favorite RPG that I never get to play is BESM: I have a copy of Big Ears, Small Mouse that I’ve played twice. It is a supplement to BESM, but uses animal and insect PCs and NPCs.

Favorite Game System My favorite game system currently is Pathfinder. I like the customization that is available. Especially, the character and race building rules. Although, if I could find a group I would love to play old school BESM 2nd Edition. It is simple and fun to play but I would use the new rules of high rolls are best, not low.

How can players make the stakes important? Personally, I find today’s question goes hand in hand with yesterday’s question as well. Because, no matter what a GM does to make the stakes feel more important in the game. If the players have not bought into the story, there is nothing you can do to make anything feel important in your game. They will just go … Continue reading #RPGaDay2018 Upping the Stakes in game
