    Your comment just abruptly cuts off but that's a good sample of what you're doing. I'd agree, unless you wanted to add in something to introduce randomness, maybe just for an event that happens, simple choices are probably the best and that looks like a good start. You'd want to plan out your...

    I still lean toward suggesting you at least looking at Wushu (linked above), if for no other reason than to get some ideas of how it approaches play - it is a free, very simple (for them, but really for the GM too) system with just a few main traits the players can create themselves and no...

    What do you mean by "all descriptive solutions" or a "way to be not so linear"? I mean I can understand you mean you don't want it to be railroady, but teaching people a language through the medium of gaming has different rules (in my opinion) because like math is a universal language, so too is is...

    I'd agree with the above posts. Not a fan of d20 myself anymore but my first purchase and game was '88 redbox, and having played AD&D2E, 3x and 4, I have to say I would prefer original '88 redbox with some better rules for separate races and classes and skills.

    Hi there, very cool to see some game design around here. =) I like your start and overall the rules and definitely the feel, simplistic and reminiscent of, to me, 8 bit console RPGs like Final Fantasy and Zelda. One thing offhand is you could mock up a character sheet and maybe a list of your...

    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:
Nate
Biography:
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.
