What are you looking for?:
It's hard to really go into what I like in a game. I generally can enjoy any game as long as someone doesn't say it's realistic and their reasoning is completely crazy. I don't like realstic most of the time anyways. I enjoy games where the players have plenty of oppertunity to interact, and that role play is encouraged. I like experimental DMS and Players. When I DM I often will give the players a slight edge or something a little more then the average starting package.
I like DMs and Players who can think on their feet. As I like my games ran like how I run them. I've successfully frightend players during game play, from the sheer story alone, having been asked to stop the game for a period of time to let them recover. My games have been described as Frantic, Action Packed, and generally a good mix of humor and horror. I enjoy my horror, but don't want it to be a dominating feature in every campaign.
I like a game that has plot points where each individual character gets to shine built in. I like DMs who can react to the unexpected and hold a game together, and players who don't break the traditional honor codes yet don't complain when a player has something a bit out of the ordinary. I like original characters and long deep plots.
My weapon of choice is a D8.
I started playing 3.5 with no clue what we were doing. After over a decade of free form role playing. Sense then, my local group has had many successful DnD games. Ones that have lasted years, switcing between DMs and keeping a healthy balance of story, action, and adventure.
Once in a while we play other systems. Usually to a failed point, Mutants and Masterminds, World of Darkness. We like to try new settings, but our only other successful one was Scion. I've been known to drop jaws in Scion (I loved having left my fellow players awe struck and even my DM unresponsive after a few moments as I described my first attack in the game).
I've been known to create real world emotional effects on people form games. I've had people break down in tears from how sad things have gotten, asked to stop playing out of literally being frightend, and easily find humor without loosing the game. This is just when I DM.
It's been known though I do have my flaws. I sometimes will try odd character concepts, but I always try them within reason. Anyone else successfully make it through 3 campaigns as a legless, skinless, intelligent zombie packed full of short jokes? I guessed not.
My only problems would be my work schedule, which I can request and likely get any day off 3 weeks in advance. I get every wensday off period. But the first wensday of every month I run player training meetings for the local LARP in Elkins and once in a while I'll have an event which will always take priority. I woudl prefere not to play in the mornings, as my nerdy girl friend and I would prefere that time to nerd out together. But once a week can be spared.
