    Count me in! I can make five actions per week - it's a whole lot easier than 3 actions per round! Where is that Kraken? Let me at him!

    Yeah, I know, I've probably introduced myself before. But now I'm on Twitter, and I have no followers. :( So do me a favor and follow me! No long-term commitment, you're welcome to jump ship once I hit 100. Just P&PG friends backing each other up. (Which reminds me, I'll totally subscribe...

    Yes fm, there's always that issue: what does the spell actually do? Does it create meaning in the recipient's head, so that he's hearing the actual words spoken -and- the translation? Does it give him perfect understanding of the words, so that no translation is needed? Or does it make the...

    Greetings back! How did you find us? P&PG is a great website for finding local players and live chatroom action. You're very likely to find some game designers and playtesters here, too!

    My pleasure. Thanks for braving a new game! I wish I had a more roleplaying-centric module for you Mora, but like Donald Rumsfeld says, "you don't go to war with the army you wish you had." If I manage to snag you again, I'll tip the scale in the other direction.

    Doesn't have to be fantasy only. Have you ever plopped a Babel fish into your ear? You need to choose a perspective for the translation. A dictionary or a person are probably the best choices. If the spell uses a dictionary, then you get the most boring, literal, direct translations. If it...

    Parting thought: the turn cycle would flow more smoothly if there was an Announce Action (or pass) phase, followed by a Rolling phase, in which anyone who had announced actions would roll their dice in initiative order (initiating character first). And then, I wouldn't be going up through 20 lines...

    Jehovah died, Tre. All white disappeared from the world. The color scheme looks fun on my screen, but I would probably disapprove in print. The setting looks fun too, but I don't know about diceless systems.

    I am, strangely, having a lot of fun writing up the rules catalog for this version of the game. They're shorter and sweeter than before, and I expect to look at rule dependencies differently, so they'll end up being less dependent. All of which translates, of course, into your ease of use when...

    No hassle: the other three players are newbies too (to the RPG, not roleplaying). If you could make any Skyrim character, who would it be? (This is called your character concept.)

    Oh. Well, that is really cool! It sounds like a lot of fun, too. My concern is that it sounds highly subjective, so players might find that their efforts don't matter very much since it seems to just boil down to GM opinion. I hope that's not the case.

    That game is available by following the URL in my signature. A free Skyrim module to the game that jpat is looking for will be linked in the thread about the subject, in these very forums. In the OP's interest, it's a smaller book than 5e. GURPS could use some enchanting; that old game can...

    "Thy Gaming Self." That needs to be coined. Here's another reason to play D&D: you live in a roleplaying vacuum, and the majority of people around you insist on playing it because it's the only choice. This is the power of brand name recognition. It's like going to the store to buy Kleenex. ...

    This is what I'll call the Blank Page Problem or as the sage once said, "there's nothing more intimidating than a blank page." When faced with a blank character background, your only option is really to start imagining stuff. Yeah, it gets a lot easier with a detailed setting to use as anchor...

What are you looking for?:
I like to feel camaraderie with a DM rather than animosity; I'm not at the table to beat someone. I know that systems can be brittle, so I try to treat them fairly. I've played 4.0 D&D, but it runs more like a tabletop war game than I'm happy with. That said, I've played 3.5 D&D games that were entirely story-driven with no combat; that was woefully unfulfilling. I've played high and low magic games, high and low power games and I play nice with people new to a game system.
About Me
Biography:
I'm a big fan of story-driven games. Games I've run have favored skill checks and intuition as much as direct damage dealing madness. My play style varies; In 3.5 games I've run a bitter loner sorcerer, a book-smart but unworldly wizard with a vow of nonviolence and a mysterious mute psychic warrior who abused ploymorph. In other systems, I've played an Afghani CIA informant, a magic-wielding ex-Spetsnaz soldier working for the CDC, an automatronic crime-solving van with identity issues and an african-american angel/janitor working at Berkeley University during the 1940's, that I best recall.
