Welcome to #RPGaDAY2022! Now in its ninth year, #RPGaDAY was originally created by RPG author and games designer David Chapman (Conspiracy X, Doctor Who, etc) as a bit of fun and to get people talking about tabletop roleplaying games. August was chosen, I believe, to coincide with tabletop roleplaying’s gaming mecca that is Gen Con – which usually takes place in the States (Inidanapolis these days) every August.
#RPGaDAY is open to everyone so if you want to join in just check out the prompts below to inspire a blog, vlog, or social media post to celebrate everything great about our hobby with the tag #RPGaDAY2022
Day 22 : Who is your current character?
Jack Adelaide. Pilot and getaway driver extraordinaire.
Jack Adelaide is actually a pseudonym as he’s actually an Australian born agent of the British Empire in the late 40’s. World War 2 ended fairly abruptly when Nazi occultists summoned Jörmungandr (the Midgard Serpent or World Serpent) but couldn’t control it, with the Allied forces using atomic weapons to kill it… with its corpse falling, coiling round the Earth, sending devasting tidal waves crashing in the coastal cities and for hundreds of miles inland, whilst destroying everything it landed on. Thus resulting in much of the northern hempshere in ruins and a massive corpse of a snake creating a barrier larger than many mountain ranges circling the planet.
Britain was in ruins, and the government relocated to Australia with many refugees.
Jack, who grew up on his uncles farm flying crop dusters from about 14, was recruited by the Empire’s secret service and, along with a couple of other academy recruits, has recently graduated and been sent on his first mission… an undercover job posing as artifact smugglers… which is seeing them travel up the West Coast of Africa before heading over to the Middle East and eventually into Iran. Fighting Nazi’s, fighting weird demon/spirits, and avoiding getting bitten by giant mutant snakes as they go.
