    For those of you who have been waiting for light, modular rules, grid-free combat, hero points, spells requiring concentration, and easy, fast math in a free roleplaying game: you're in luck. D&D 5 is out, and they beat me to the printing press. But if you were hoping for customizable...

    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...

    One week. If no other GMs are joining, it's going to be one, big, Skyrim battle-royale! Start your character early by replying to my how-to-play thread:

    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!)

    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?
