August means the #RPGaDay program is live. We are now in the third week of this month-long series filling my schedule. The RPG-a-day project is hosted again at Brigade Con blog, were you can find the full list of questions.
Which RPG do you enjoy adapting the most?
Maybe I am not appreciating the subtle differences between the questions this year but I keep returning to the same answers. My first take on the Tales of the Hero Wars campaign involved a heavily revised version of D&D 3.5. These days, I could not cope with all those rules.
So, I once again return to the inevitable HeroQuest Glorantha as my favourite RPG in virtually any category. The beauty of house ruling such a simple set of rules is that there are so few existing rules to upset. When the core rules are so streamlined, it is possible to plug in whatever modifications you desire. Also, such house rules can be likewise simple, as this matches the core mechanisms. Passions, relationships, new magic rules, all are simple to add to HQ. My current campaign uses multiple house rules, eased by the suitability of the core rules.
