Day 29: If you could host a game anywhere on Earth,
where would you choose?
There are a lot of locations that would be spectacular.
Stirling Castle, Edinburgh Castle, and Holyrood Palace spring to mind, all places I’ve had the pleasure to visit.
Carey Mansion, stand-in for Dark Shadows’ Collinwood, would be another.
I could go on and on, picking different locations that would perfectly fit a particular game… and I haven’t even touched on local haunts and old gaming places I’d be up to revisiting for old time’s sake.
But if I get just one pick, it really has to be this one:
My wife and I got to visit Rosslyn Chapel in March of 2001, before the Da Vinci Code craze, and we had pretty much the run of the place.
It is as atmospheric a place as you could ever hope for, with amazing acoustics and medieval imagery to inspire anything from Dungeons & Dragons to Call of Cthulhu to the Song of Ice & Fire… or even a little something we’re calling Occult Detective: The Roleplaying Game.
Yeah, not really that hard of a choice, come to think of it, but I could easily make a list of a hundred places I’d love to game in, either again or for the first time…
The best part of a good RPG is, it’s imaginary… you can do it anywhere because it’s really all inside your head.
