Day 7: Favorite Free RPG

OK, I haven't actually played it yet, but I did listen to one actual play, and I've read the one page worth of rules.
It's not often you find a game with just one stat. And I love the scenario generation.
Day 8: Favorite appearance of RPGs in the Media
Whenever Chris Hardwick makes off-hand D&D comments in shows that aren't about RPGs. Like when he's talking about the Walking Dead to just normal people and mentions things like "alignment" or mentioning characters in the show as "The Paladin, The Fighter, and then here comes back the Ranger", as if everyone should just understand what those words mean.
Day 9: Favorite media you wish was an RPG
To be honest, kinda had a hard time with this one. Ghost Writer. From where this gem comes:
Seriously though, it's a bunch of young teenagers solving crime Scooby Doo style, but with a ghost that must be communicated with through writing, and which can help them. My daughters been watching it ad naseum, and it'd make a great kids RPG.
