    This is true, and incorporating immediate events and environment and "props" into description, for both player and GM, can really spice things up and breathe life into a combat, action or even investigation scene. I always encourage my players to include details even if I didn't mention them, if...

    Bigjawhite, you still looking for players? I'm a 40+ as well and new to the Westside.. (Playa Vista), looking for a game to play/DM. D&D of some flavor, although I prefer 3.5/Pathfinder. Thanks Jeff

    Ah yes, the Persian Gulf region. And to think back on that is where I first played in an RPG in 1991 during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

    From a layman's perspective, based on the conversation so far, it would seem that the only essential difference between wfrp, and something like d&d, is the "high" fantasy. Wfrp sounds like it aims for a more gritty realistic fantasy: it starts you off as an average Joe, and finishes as a somewhat...

    You can always do lots of things to change rules or ignore rules or make houserules or only vaguely reference them occasionally, with any game, of course. Thie topic is about the rules-as-written and where they seem to me to be fundamentlally flawed in most cases. Of course like anything else it is...

    Awesome to hear from someone there! Does it tend to be very inter-cultural there or is it cliques, both game and language-wise? Like, does your community have various people in it or languages, or is it English only, etc? It's rare to hear about gaming from places so little known.

    I'm looking for players to join a weekly Tues evening game. We'll begin at first level with custom characters. If you'd like to join, roll up a character and send me your idea. This will be a sandbox-style game, meaning I'll be as flexible as possible with pursing extemporaneous narrative elements...

    The game doesn't claim to be classless, and clearly states there are careers. Since it's randomly rolled initially and you can (if you are playing realistically) only change into careers that you do in-game) it's hardly overwhelming. Comparing it to D&D is like comparing an Apple with a Melon. They...

    Hi all! Been interested in both the Unisystem game of Witchcraft and in the Iron Kingdoms setting for a while, and I unfortunately have no interested parties close to me. While I might DM the Witchcraft or Iron Kingdoms game, I already DM for a couple of other groups for Pathfinder in my area...

    To make your stories more interesting, you must find ways to blend the description into the story. Descriptions that just sit there are generally known as "narrative lumps . " Like lumps on proverbial logs, they sit there and do little to your story. Send those lumps to the gym and make them...

    Drunk Tabletop continues! On August 21, 2015, we played a another one-shot using the BRP rules. The catch - everyone got pretty drunk before the game and during character creation and remained so during the game.
