What are you looking for?:
I have played AD&D 1st and 2nd Edition since '87 and moved on to Rolemaster/MERP, Twilight 2K, and some Palladium games such as Recon, Ninjas and Superspies, and Palladium Fantasy. Currently, I am working on a historical-legendary system using the Palladium rules for a campaign set in late 12th century England near the Welsh border. Prior to that was a game set in moderrn San Francisco where the players were starting up a criminal empire using Palladium N&SS rules. Before that was a Star Wars D20 game set during Knight of the Old Republic time where the players were evil. A few years ago, it was MERP mostly with the campaign set in the 1st Age.
What I look for in a player is someone that isn't a all tied up into the rule book or obnoxiously questioning everything in a game. Also, someone that can "play" their character and work on some development or background history. I'm tired of hack n' slash, where every encounter ends up a bloody mess. Although, that doesn't mean I don't enjoy see some violence now and/or some evil, just for the sake of being evil. Basically, I looking to get back into creating some unforgettable gaming worlds for the players. Also, I'm not looking for some over the top RP performance where we all sit around talking in Shakespearean English for hours, but at least a group that can get into character ever now and then.
Update: I'm looking a playing the new Lone Wolf Multiplayer RPG and perhaps breaking out the old AD&D 2nd Edition rules.
I started Rping with D&D back in '87 with a second-hand "red" basic set from a local gaming store. Ever since then I was hooked. Prior to that, I was reading Choose Your Own Adventure books and Lone Wolf. In the early years, I played fantasy-based games like D&D and then graduated to AD&D. The a friend of mine decided we should start playing Star Wars D6 since we're big fans of the movies. Mostly, sessions were every few weeks or so. Then I discovered Twilight 2K and other systems like Rolemaster and MERP. I've been GMing off and on since 2000.
Recently, I had been GMing very small groups of players with a very laid back attitude. I stopped GMing to play Star Wars Galaxies, D&D Online, and beta-tested LoTR Online. I would like to keep a small to medium-sized group of casual players that would be willing to game on a continual basis.
