13. What horror RPG have you enjoyed most? Why?
I have little experience with horror games. I should have played Call of Cthulhu for no other reason than I was in the hobby at the time it was introduced and I tended to buy up just about every new role-playing game I came across at the time. I probably should have played Chill at some point for the same reasons but I never did. I did not even participate in the Vampire: the Masquerade craze that would happen years later.
The one horror game that caught my eye during a visit to the game store was Nightlife. I do not remember a whole lot about it except that it was a game featuring monsters as player characters. There were several types of monsters – werewolves, vampyres, wyghts, inuits, and more – and they were called kin if I recall correctly. Some wanted to live in harmony with humans while others wanted to enslave or kill humans. The game focused a lot more on combat and high action adventure instead of the social aspects of the World of Darkness games. From the reading I have done it seems that a lot of people played WoD that way anyway.
I lost the game while I was in the Army. One of my brother’s guests made off with some of my gaming materials that I had collected over the years. I recently remembered this game and discovered that Noble Knight has some bundle deals available that give you the core book plus several supplements for like $50 total so it is a great deal. I plan on putting in an order soon…
