About Me
Real Name:
Jason J. Patterson (JP)
Biography:
Early 40s male, 3/32 Cherokee, have run tabletop, forum and chat games; Warhammer FRP2E, CoC and Feng Shui, Savage Worlds, Chill. Enjoy reading RPG.NET etc. Prefer online. Not D&D/D20 fan.

General Overview:
I enjoy rules-lite to rules-medium games; not necessarily "hack and slash", but cinematic and active when possible, both as a player and as a GM, cool is the rule - the more awesome, the better - implausible but applause-worthy stunts are terrific!

While I like players to feel free to do stunts and come up with big ideas, they need to share the spotlight with each other, and ALSO to remember there IS a plot/story backdrop to play against and solve also, and obstacles to overcome. The GM puts the obstacles and plot there FOR the players and their characters, for those characters to demonstrate their best qualities, whatever the players feel those are, however the players play them. The adventures are ABOUT the characters, because they are the ones DOING them, but their goal, is about whatever the objective of the adventure is.

What percentage of my games are RP vs Combat? 50%/50%? What do the other GM's say? I really want to win that car. Seriously though, what do you consider RP? Climbing a mountain or sneaking into a castle past the guards? Besting a wizard in a battle of wits? Winning a debate with the mayor, charming the princess, convincing the townsfolk not to lynch the witch? Planning out your next route to the Forbidden Mines? The amount of combat and RP is really mostly up to the players, so I can only say 50/50 because I can't really predict what will happen.

I'm not fond of fiddly rules, lots of fluff, convoluted restrictions and monotonous tactical quibbling - I like cool narrative and clever ideas - those win out every time.

The Path of Solomon Kane, Season Six - Play by Post Savage Worlds Campaign

by jpatterson on 01-28-2014 at 11:03 AM
I've been forced to adapt my Savage Worlds Solomon Kane campaign to play-by-post for the immediate future, until some offline issues "settle down" a bit for me. I hope I'm able to conduct it entertainingly and consistently for my players.

My plan is to conclude "The Lion of Ninn" adventure/plot point/scenario/story arc, and then see if there is interest in continuing into the further "episodes" of Season Six via play by post, or if my players would rather
