    Well it isn't really an either-or situation, more an "and-also", as people do the player/game-finder stuff and post their game in the forums, it's not spamming (unless of course it's spam) since that's what this site, PPG was originally known for, was connecting players, so a forum post and the...

    I like the idea of stunt dice and stuff and WFRP3's dice pool idea seems a little like that, though I've not gotten to PLAY a game using the stunt dice stuff (Dragon Age, etc), but W's idea looks slightly more complex, as you say, you can have critical success and still have enormous setbacks,...

    It is disappointing. I know adminning and stuff can be a lot of work, but just keeping things running doesn't seem like that much of an obligation. I can't truly judge another person's viewpoint I guess, and there are times when we make decisions or offers and are just wrong and things just didn't...

    Interesting. I will try to download and read through it this coming week but having seen it once, I'm not sure how much use I'll be on the second go-through, unless it's really changed to my eyes, but I'll see what I can do, I'm kind of interested to see what changed. =)

    jpatterson replied to a thread [Gear (General)] Magical Artifacts of Thindacarulle in Campaign Resources
    Without knowing a specific setting, would you say this stuff can be converted USEFULLY to some other game, like if I ran Cthulhu Dark Ages or Warhammer or Dragon Age or a Savage Worlds fantasy game? Is there any point or is it really tied strongly to the setting? I love free stuff and lists and...

    I ran feng Shui and Call of Cthulhu for a short time in a different forum, it went ok. I tried here but it didn't last four weeks and my players are drifted way. I did run Solomon Kane for Savage Worlds in here once a week in chat here for almost three years - chatroom is broken though now for the...

    Someone started a chatzy one like the evil outcast Morashitar did, but it was a teensy bit more well received, but she had her own (to some) oddness, and a few of us just sorta keep in touch on FB and Skype, though some went to TheTangledWeb, I don't know how good it is there. I still mod here.

    jpatterson replied to a thread Hello? in Off Topic
    There's a post here and there, but I check in every few days and see less activity. Spammers are getting more numerous and making lots more posts, that I have to delete the posts and permaban them. The site is still usable and can do pbps and the individual forums for groups you make, and blogs and...

    Interesting replies. I do hope you find others to also reply, since I'm just one person and as I said, I'm not really anyone's target demographic, but I like to think I know, at least a little, what I've read that's sometimes the "general wisdom" of a lot of gamers and their ideas, plus of course...

    Firstly, this is not my type of game, I like simple, rules-lite (if I can get it) games with straight-forward and "localized" (one character) play, in most cases, so what I say should be taken in context of that. I'm just going to list the things that occur to me, confuse me, etc. You need a more...

    Actually yeah I have looked at Dragon Age and it did immediately make me think too, that it would be a good alternate for Warhammer (I didn't realize the WFRP did it) and I like the stunt idea and such - I wondered why it seemed at least a tad similar to WFRP3. Rules lite is a huge selling point...

    Hey have you put any more thought into your character background. This will help me to provide smooth transition for your character. As an incentive, when you complete your background, I will provide something for you that matches your character development. I usually provide you with two or three options. Anyway, hit me back as soon as you get a chance or give me a call after 7pm at 850-459-7051.
    Can't wait to get you started.

What are you looking for?:
I'm not especially picky about the game or type of gameplay. I'm pretty easy going and can adapt to whatever the group wants to do. I'm more interested in finding a group of people that game for fun and are well rounded and don't take themselves too seriously. This is not to say that I don't enjoy getting deeply immersed in a good story with rich characters, though.
About Me
Real Name:
I have played several sessions of WoD, D&D 4.0, D&D 3.5, Pathfinder, Star Wars Saga, and AFMBE, but don't have an extensive knowledge of the lores of any particular gaming system. I also play Warhammer Fantasy (Dwarfs) and have enough pieces to make ~2000 pt army. The latest edition I have played is 7th. I'll have been out of gaming for close to two years now with school, but I will probably have time next summer and will want to get back to it.
