    Step# 1 - Roleplay. Say what your character would say, and mimic his hand and facial movements. 2 - Contest. When the GM thinks you might not succeed at step 1, roll a d20. Add an attribute bonus from physical, mental, or metaphysical, depending on what you're doing. If you have a related...

    Just give me a start time (and time zone), game description, number of players desired, and link, so I can fill in our shortcut table above! Carodwen, to run Pathfinder, you could use the whiteboard to move miniatures, but you might be better off going mapless and giving the PCs the benefit of...

    The game rules are ready to go - I'm just filling in the details and bonus material like the sample adventure and sample monsters. I've done some streamlining and some expanding, so there are a lot of changes to be discovered. I will be releasing an unfinished edition or two to facilitate...

    I don't know anything about Exalted, but I'll help if I can. Is an "ignition source" a special rule in Exalted? Or another term for plot initiation/instigation? In general, I don't see why peasant revolt is a bad way to start a game. . .

    "I pick up the tea and take it away." "I set the table. With knives and forks." "I try my hand at preparing a meal." 45 minutes in, and it's still not interesting?! (No, I didn't watch it for 45 minutes!)

    4. Chat room roleplaying! It's so great to be unable to hear the other players' burps and iPhone noises! And thus far, I've been successful at avoiding Evercrack and WoW. Viele Gruesse!

    10 monsters written, 63 planned. Of course, the beginning of the Bestiary discusses three different ways to make your own monsters, but here's another freebie: Slime, green, level 1 Attributes: P 11, M 10, MP 10 Skills: fight (unarmed) +1 Perks: weapon focus (acid touch) Gear: acid touch d6...

    One thing sells your game here: the post you write for it. See mine, post #2. I think I'll add some bold and ask other GMs to do the same - it'll help navigation a bit. Elsewhere, you're welcome to gather players as you see fit.

    This is the discussion thread for my upcoming HoliCon game, but anyone's welcome to discuss. I'll be running my indie game, which is intended to be rules-light, so picking it up quickly should be easy. The game's homepage is here, but some rules have changed for simplicity - hence this discussion...

    Let's do the 13th then. And make it official. Maybe Matt can give us one of those cool blue thread backgrounds for it. Can Umi run a game on the 13th, too? I'll run another Skyrim game, just because it's so fun to send Youtube soundtrack messages through the chat interface. And I'll send...

    Well get to work! I'll be rallying the troops soon, since I have a few other bites. If I can't get a regular thing going, maybe a one-day game-a-thon will suffice for now?

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.
