RPG a Day 2016: Guess who’s coming to the game? Part Deux- Day 17

If you thought I was late yesterday… at least it’s still the 17th in my time zone.  Continuing the #RPGaDay 2016, this question closely follows yesterday’s. This time around it’s about fictional characters. Let’s get this one done too.

August 17: What fictional character would best fit in your group? Why?

I considered many fictional characters, but every time I thought of one, I realized he or she was too closely tied to this property or that universe, and having them as player’s in a group where we play different games and genres would be awkward. After much consideration I settled on one of my favorite fictional characters as a kid, a character who comes from a relatively realistic contemporary setting, and I could see enjoying a good tabletop RPG session.  Who you ask?

Tintin the role player

Tintin! I was such a fan as a child, his adventures fired up my imagination. I was aware some of the stories were horribly racist but the adventure and mystery just pulled me in. I must have read those stories hundreds of times. Tintin is smart, funny, and I believe he would be a great addition to our gaming group. And Snowy is welcome as well! As long as he doesn’t bring up his trip to the Congo…

Short and sweet! Now that I’m done with that, let’s go on to other topics. What fictional character joined your gamin group today? Let us know in the comments.

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!
