RPG A Day 2017 – Day 01

A bit late to this game, but I’m going to give it a go anyway! I’ll have to crank out several a day in the beginning to catch up, but given my history in gaming I shouldn’t have too much of a problem. However, since I am more of a VIDEO gamer than Table Top, I will be taking some “poetic license” in this series to make it work.

Ok, enough blabbering! On with the list!

Day 1: What Published RPG Do You Wish You Were Playing Right Now?

Well, that’s an easy one: Shadow Run

Shadowrun Tabletop

My first exposure to Shadowrun was on the SNES, back in the day when my brother and I would rent it from the local video store. For us, the game was amazingly fresh and new and it just instantly blew our little minds. It was my first introduction in to Cyberpunk, a genre that I did not know at the time was going to be all time favorite. On top of the cyberpunk, Shadowrun also blends in classic magic aspects on top of American Indian influences. We played through the game several times when we could, and I still look fondly back on those memories.

It wasn’t until a few years back that I learned that a tabletop version of the game existed. Not only that, but the table top predated the SNES game! I was able to research it a bit and it looks AWESOME, however I was never able to get a crew together to get a campaign going. I still hold out hope that I will be able to get something going. I haven’t started stocking up on D6’s just yet, but perhaps I should build a supply just in case.
