The #RPGaDAY prompt was concocted by Dave Chapman of Autocratik. Grab the list and join in!
The scariest role-playing game I ever partook in was not scary due to the adventure or other prepared material. Rather, it was the use of lights, music and sound effects that got me during the adventure’s climax. The GM did an excellent job of using rhythm and dissonance to get the heart pounding and me feeling off-kilter.
Once was enough for that sort of thing.
