RPG a Day 2023 – Favorite Con Module / One Shot

My all-time favorite con module is “Barbarian Lives”, which was the featured module for the RPGA Dungeons & Dragons Open at GenCon in Milwaukee back in … 1998? 1999?

A three-round event, the D&D 2nd Edition scenario rewarded role-playing, with people voting on who should advance to the next round. The story itself was a soap opera-inspired arc; I can’t remember the details, but I remember being excited to come back to the game each day. Despite playing with people I didn’t know, it turned out to be one of the most rewarding RPG experiences of my life.
