Favorite rpg adventure of 2009

Post by cczernia » Sun Dec 27, 2009 5:12 pm

So, I'm interested in what everyones favorite games they played in adventure(s) were for 2009?



Mine was Primetime Adventures (a game where the rules use concepts from Primetime TV) where we created and played the TV show Eclesia, a show about the war between angels and demons set at a high school (similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

My favorite oneshot was Song of Ice and Fire where I took the pregens that came with the startup adventure and tweaked them as an heir to a major throne. For some reason this game worked a lot better as a oneshot than a campaign but I was to try a similar style game again only using a different rule set.

a little late on this thread, but my favorite games i played in '09 was a co-gm'd star wars campaign and the aforementioned prime adventures: ecclesia. i also had a great time running star trek: the ends and the means, and plan on continuing to have a great time running it in '010.

I can't pick favorites. They are all my children.

I think by 2011, you're really gonna have that thing down cold.

Sven's D&D political game was my favorite. Hands down. Just fun and engaging. Complications that were more than the basic I throwing a harder NPC at you. Where the game play was equal to the intensity of the roleplay

But that is how bad azz it was Chris ...eh...alright then...Star Wars with JC



If Star Wars was in '08 then NWoW Ghost game or Song of Ice and Fire. I liked being a floozy nature child and the tourny knight with one hand. I was upset and happy and thrilled and a munchkin in that game. So i ran the gamut of emotional ranges within a single game. Si I can't be displeased



I liked the first half of the Planescape and I liked how my guy had his eyes gauged out it was cool. Second half was eh...because i was GM

Actually, the first adventure you ran was my favorite... probably because it was all about me. :razz:

I played in a really great Burning Empires one-shot at Endgame in Oakland.
Whenever I get confused about D&D alignment morality, I just imagine Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi arm wrestling shirtless on the back of a killer whale.

In other words, I remember that it doesn't really make a whole lot of sense and deal with it best I can.

I'm a giving my award to Cthulhu's Deadlands action. Hot and cold running horror with all the kinetic violence of a Peckinpah flick.
