If I'm going to be watching it anyway, I don't need to see any trailers or anything like that. I just need to know when it's on so I can watch it. No spoilers for me!

New day, new question!

Would you prefer to go to a zoo or a museum?

Depends on the quality of care in the zoo and/or the subject matter in the museum...

You're never too late when you're a  time-traveling pirate! But not as awesome as Cursed Acolyte!

It depends on what it is. Movies/TV I prefer sci-fi. Games I order fantasy.

New day, new question!

Since so many people said fantasy, what is your favorite magic system in a novel?

I’ve been a fan of the Shannara series for that.

In an novel? None. They don't go into enough detail for me to mess around with.

I like reading about magic systems in RPGs (even if I'm never going to play them!) because I get to look at the bare bones.

We used a home-brewed varient of Everway that I thought had a fun and entertaining magic system. It allowed for a great deal of flexibility and use of imagination. 

Of course, it's a diceless system with very little structure, and you have to put a lot of trust in your GM, so it's probably not something most folks are going to want to try. wink

My favorite magic system in a game... Anima: Beyond Fantasy is pretty neat, it has a magic pool like video games. However characters only regain so much of their mana pool each day so they cannot launch spells constantly.

New day, new question!

On a dungeon raid, what type of role would you play?

To answer yesterday's question, I guess I would go for Dungeon World's magic system right now- clean, simple but with enough player choice to keep it interesting.

 

For a dungeon raid? I guess I would be an archer sitting at the back plinking away with poisoned arrows, I think that role is called Damage Dealer, but I'm not that big a fan of MMOs.

Depends what the book is of.

If it's a rule or text book that I will want to search quickly for certain terms then it's digital for me.

Anything else I want the real deal.

If it's a novel or something, physical version every time. If it's a rulebook or something where I generally only use it to look up specific stuff, a PDF is better (because Ctrl+F) :D.

So...basically what Matchstickman said :D.

Do you have a favourite number? What is it or why not?

(forgot the R!)

I do not have a favorite in number.   I follow a few sports so the numbers are a bit interchangeable over time.   Though I could see that being the reason someone has a favorite number as well.

That's two questions. But I suppose maybe the number fifteen because it's my birthday? I dunno...numbers aren't really my thing...

New day, new question!

If Sentinels wasn't a released game, what do you think you would have done with the time you would have "saved"? Learned a language, built a table, or just played a different game?

 

No questions on Sundays from me, if someone else wants to post one, feel free.
