RPGaDAY 2015: Days 10-12

Day 10: Favorite RPG Publisher

I had a hard time with this one, cause I don't really have a favorite publisher. I feel like I'm a little too new on the scene, and also that the publishers that I do know, I don't really know. But then I have been starting to meet a few designers at a very few cons, and although exciting to see the different work that's coming out, I still have no favorites.

So with that, I went googling. And I like Stephanie's answer (which was Evil Hat Productions), so I'll leave it here for people to read.

Cause I got nothing right now.

Day 11: Favorite RPG Writer

Jim Pinto (just so I can sound even more like a fanboy). I like his writing style. It's a little abrasive, and has a little attitude. And he uses stellar fonts.

Day 12: Favorite RPG Illustration

Wow, this one is so very hard. I started with the Basic D&D red box that was graced by Erol Otus, and loved many of his other works:

 How much time did I spend staring at this image?

 I really wish he'd done a few with Vrusks and Dralasites, but they only got the black-and-white cheesy shit, in the manuals.

But if I had to choose one piece of art, it'd be the WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING (from the 1E MM):

 

 That's some scary shit when you're 9 years old!
