All posts by Sunglar

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!

#RPGaDay2018 – Days 28 to 31: The Final Video!

¡We are here! At the end of #RPGaDay2018… This last week was incredibly busy for me. Work, work, work! Mind you I love my job. I’m lucky to do something I love, but still, it was too much, and I could not record the last few videos. Now, with just a few minutes before august 2018 ends in Puerto Rico, I’m sharing my final video. I’m answering the last few questions/prompts, which are:

Day 28 – Share whose inspiring gaming excellence you’re grateful for.

This one is dedicated to all my players, past and present, currently Naida, José, Carlos, Raúl, Fernando and Luis.

Day 29 – Share a friendship you have because of RPGs.

This one is dedicated to my dear, dear friend Michael Wolf, aka Stargazer!

Day 30 – Share something you learned about playing your character.

Day 31 – Share why you take part in RPGaDAY.

Excuse the shaky cam and the background noise. I just recorded the video on my phone. It has been an amazing ride, thank you all for reading, subscribing to my YouTube Channel, and your kind words. I hope to keep posting more frequently (Haven’t I said this before?), I’m on board for next year!

Big thanks to David F. Chapman’s for his efforts and to everyone who participated in #RPGaDay this year.

#RPGaDay2018 – Days 23 to 27: Video Compilation

Yes, I’m still here… not giving up on #RPGaDay2018! If you follow me on social media you might have noticed I posted various videos for the last few days yesterday on my YouTube channel and the channel for Desde la Fosa. However, I was short on time and did not write the corresponding blog. A fact I am correcting today. The topics for the last couple of days were the following:

Day 23 – Which game do you hope to play again?

#RPGaDay2018 – Day 21 and 22: Which dice mechanic and non-dice mechanic appeal to you?

Hello everybody… although I posted my videos yesterday on my YouTube channel and the channel for Desde la Fosa, I neglected writing a post and sharing them with you. These two days are all about mechanics. Dice mechanics and non-dice mechanics.

 For the first pair of videos corresponding to day 21, I had a specific example and a general overall mechanic beyond a specific game, I prefer roll high mechanics, preferably using a single dice.

As far as non-dice mechanic I first thought about diceless game, playing Amber briefly once upon a time, but then I though about all the non-dice mechanics in game we play regularly and talked about that in the videos, specifically the Interludes rule from Savage Worlds. Hope you enjoy both days.

The video for day 21 in English:
