Since 2014, RPGaDay poses daily questions about RPGs in August.
Since 2015, we resist by delivering daily thematic material for RPGs in August.
This year, the theme of the alternate August activity was to be “allies”. Ally-a-Day.
But what is that? The enemy appears to lower their arms. Instead of posing questions, RPGaDay2019 presents single word prompts, suddenly opening a path leading past the About towards the For.
While we do not wish to ignore the hand so offered, neither do we wish to cast out our allies because the enemy for once appears conciliatory.
Neither just RPG-a-Day nor just Ally-a-Day.
Not or, but and.
Not minus. Plus.
Day 7: Familiar + Allies
Frog is the familiar of a wizard. He loves to catch flies together with chameleon, but most of the time, the two have to copy spellbooks for their masters. While doing that, they philosophize about the meaning of life and magic and about the nonsense of mammals and magicians.
Chameleon is the familiar of a wizard. He loves to catch flies together with frog, but most of the time, the two have to copy spellbooks for their masters. In doing so, they build rhymes and descriptions into the texts, which they think are very clever and deep.
