We played a weekly game with him as the gamemaster using a rules-less fantasy game he made up called Tark-Mar. It’s a campaign world that’s very He-man in tone and we loved it.
I then took over the game master role and got us into AD&D 2nd Edition. And then switched over to classic D&D by way of Rules Cyclopedia when that came out.
We eventually stopped playing when we left university and started having real life jobs.
I wanted to start running a game again with my current friends so I started looking at what’s up in the RPG world back in 2015. Two years later of going through different rulebooks and campaign genres, I’ve finally got my friends to play a game with me.
I used Green Ronin’s Fantasy Age for a couple of sessions and then continued playing with Basic Fantasy RPG. I currently run two separate on-going campaigns and I love it. I hope to continue gaming for several more years to come.
In any case, it’s just about the right time for me to join this year’s #RPGaDAY festivities. I’ll post about those separately. If you are interested in joining the fun, get the details here: https://autocratik.blogspot.com.au/2017/07/rpgaday-2017-announcing-rpgaday-again.html
