It’s Tuesday! Wait. That doesn’t deserve an exclamation point. Ah well, so it goes, and thus we wind down on Day 16 for #RPGaDay 2016.
16) Historical person you’d like in your group? What game?
I’ve got two answers for this one, and I don’t think I’m alone in either one. The first is E. Gary Gygax himself, running or playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons. I think that would be rad beyond words, but also very intimidating. What do you say? What do you do? Do you run a typical dungeon crawl for the Gawdfather of Gaming or do you shake it up a bit? I would probably get incredibly nervous.
My second choice would be a game with the late, great Robin Williams. The man was a gamer too! Not sure if he was into tabletop gaming, but I think a game of something like Paranoia with him would just be a hoot and a half. The man’s improvisational skills make him a natural fit for the Referee, but the question becomes could he keep it together enough to run the game for the enjoyment of everyone? I would hope so.
Not much more to say on this one, but I think when I run Paranoia I’m going to try and channel as much Robin Williams-esque energy as I can muster for the Computer …
