I'm looking to play or GM in a game with rich characters, a strong storyline, and where players and characters can influence the story and world. I enjoy games with a strong sense of mystery, suspense, intrigue. I also enjoy playing with secrets and character knowledge (i.e. knowing something that my character does not know). I definitely enjoy combat, but prefer when it actually helps to advance a plot. Of course, all this in a game where everyone's first priority is to create a fun, flowing game.
I am a thirty-something gamer who has been playing D&D for many years. I have also dabbled in Warhammer FRP2. Most of my recent gaming experiences have been very heavily focused on combat and tactics, "hack & slash". I'm looking for something more creative and story-based. Would like to play D&D 4e or Warhammer FRP2, but would also be open to Vampire, Fate, or some other story-rich system.
