October 2017 Blog Carnival – Superstitions!


It’s October, when the spooks, sprites, and darker things come out at night, and the RPG Blog Carnival stops by to set up shop for the month at of Dice and Dragons! Welcome all!

This time around we’re going to talk superstitions!

We’ve all heard that finding a four leaf clover is good luck, as is a horseshoe hanging in a ‘U’ shape. Of course, crossing the path of a black cat or walking under a ladder all lead to bad luck (and don’t get me started on that whole breaking a mirror thing!). You’ve probably heard and have taken part of many over your lifetime, now’s your chance to share them with the world.

What to participate? Take a few minutes and write up a blog post about a superstition in your campaign world, or, one that your players follow to try and bring the characters a bit of luck. If you don’t have one of either type, make one up and be sure to include its origin.

As always, be sure to comment here with a link to your post and be sure to watch for the round up in November!

Don’t forget to check out the RPGBA Carnival home site over at Roleplayingtips.com with links to all the past carnivals for you to enjoy. There’s a lot of great stuff there.

And please, don’t open that umbrella inside.

May your dice roll well!

    Hi Scot,

    A great choice of topic. As we hear a lot about Player dice superstitions, I wanted to balance out the coverage and write about my GM dice superstition:


    This is more than just an excuse to play with more of my pretty dice, honest!

    Thanks for hosting

    I decided to do a quick post about some basic superstitions that we often forget that we could emulate to flavor our worlds.
