Today’s topic in #RPGaDay2015 is: Most Recent RPG Purchase. I don’t tend to purchase a lot of RPGs — one, I’m not currently in a regularly-scheduled playing group, and two, a lot of stuff is sent my way as swag from industry colleagues. But when I do make a purchase, it’s something that has grabbed my attention to the point where I cannot let it go. That’s definitely the case for my most recent purchases.
Folks who know me are well aware that my greatest love is what might kindly be called “Trash Culture.” All of the various things that I’m really into: Spaghetti Westerns, Kung Fu and Wuxia, Monster movies, Spy-Fi, Pulp, Comics, etc… all of it is the sort of stuff that parents and teachers warn us “would rot our brains.” And, given that I grew up in the 1970s and 80s, trash culture from those decades hold a special place in my heart. So you can imagine my joy when I heard about The Spirit of 77 RPG. I immediately ran out and bought the PDF of the rulebook, and the first supplement, Wide World of 77.
I mean come ON. Look at that awesomeness! Spirit of 77 is basically the RPG of the Trash-Culture Seventies. Blaxploitation heroes, Kung-Fu Fighting, Bionic Women, Luchadores, CB Bandits and Stunt Bikers… It’s all there. If you like any of this stuff, you owe it to yourself to check it out. OUTTA SIGHT!
Now, I’ll turn you over to Dave Chapman for his video entry of the day.
