  1. Rules Lite Is My One True Way, Sorry Number Crunchers

    As I was talking to P&PG member Umiushi in chat the other night, I thought, again, about my gradual transition from initial wallowing in TSRian/Gygaxian tomes of charts and critical hit tables and equipment lists that spanned dozens of pages, to Chaosium/Warhammer rules and gear complexity moderation, and now preference for as close to so-called "rules lite" systems as I can get, but with a still solid and practical structure, like Feng Shui or more specifically, now that I've re-examined ...

  2. Simple Online D&D Gaming Tips

    1.Don't do anything else. Don't be watching TV, surfing the web or talking with other people. Yes, D&D can be slow and boring at times, but you should still pay attention. And if you can't role-play talking to an elf king for ten minutes, then D&D might not be the game for you.

    2.Know the rules. Have your rule books nearby and read them. You can also find the rules online.

    One of the things I've noticed with some of the groups that I've played with, still being rather new to the world of Dungeons and Dragons and RPGs in general, is that alot of players don't seem to have a good grasping of Player Etiquette.

    Yes its me. I wanted to change my handle cause scars_of_carma is what I was using for all my other handles on automotive-forums and instant-messengers.

    I did try and get scars_of_carma literally changed or at least deleted but the admins didn't reply to my request so sorry ...

  5. The Silent Disappointment

    I have returned from the gaming group I met, and unfortunately, things did not go well.

    I was ready - spending hours on writing down what I was going to say and hooking up my new printer so I could have the seven pages I put together on me, but it turned out my friend neglected to tell the group that I was coming, much less why I was coming. I wasn't given an opportunity to talk about my games, except for explaining to the owner of the house why I was there, which didn't seem to ...
