#RPGaDAY2015 Day 5: Most recent RPG purchase.

I am a collector of role playing material.  I scour used book stores for rpg material.  I waste hours on the internet looking for sales and deals on rpg books.  I rationalize these purchases by telling myself that even if I don’t run all the games I own, I can always use the material for inspiration.  The truth is that I like to read role playing books.  They are fun, they often have cool artwork, and they provide some escapism.

The most recent rpg purchase that I made is a that I picked up is used copy of the book Passion Play.  These are the LARP rules for the Fading Suns rpg setting.  Fading Sun is a Dune-esque feudal space opera setting.  The game is published with its own house system for tabletop play.  I love Dune and Fading Suns has interested me since I first heard about it.  When I saw LARP rules for the system I grabbed them.  I’m not sure if I will run a Fading Suns LARP.  I’ve never LARPed, and I would want to play in someone else’s game before I tried running my own.  However, a Dune-inspired LARP would be awesome.  If you are interested in trying it out, let me know!

By the way, the Passion Play rules can be purchased in pdf format from
