    Question

    Thanks for posting the quickstart guide, JessHartley.

    That's uncommonly kind of you. For extra respect points: Who uttered the line?

    Thoth's trivia for the day: From which movie--and possible book--was the italicized line taken from?
    Thoth-Amon, Lord of the Underworld and the Undead

    Well, I'm no dryad (more of a boggan) but I'd be barking up the wrong tree if I didn't know Treebeard when he was quoted at me.

    My Alpha Omega books just arrived. They are quite handsome, and I look forward to playing the game.

    Now that Barbarians of the Aftermath is out, I have a favorite new rules-light style PA game. It also has a lot of stuff for generating PA settings and adventures, so it's a good pretty good "idea mine" even if you don't like the system.

    Best part about dnd gaming was the Underdark. One was not a true expert player until one adventured in the Underdark, and survived. Ahh, the memories.

    My favorite dark future is definitely Alternity's Dark matter. I really like the Alternity system in general.

    I've got to go with Shadowrun. The nice mix of fantasy and cyberpunk worked well for me. I loved the fiction around it and even helped playstest it on the old compuserve boards.

    Well, its hard to beat Shadowrun... but thats pretty limited in scope. I have 2 other dark future games, the first is a custom modified Star Frontiers campaign thats been running for almost 15 years or so. Its Bladerunner-esque in some part, like a dream in others, the mega-corp owned worlds and then there's the hard life on the Rim and outer worlds. Lastly i've run a few games in a custom milieu called Ancient Futures - its a conspiracy driven multi-world and time and genre spanning game wherein different gods and powers struggle for the control of the races of sentient beings... and their dreams.

    Running: 3+ campaigns set in single custom milieu world.

    Oh, that sounds like fun. Wish you weren't so far north.

    The choices should've included Cyberpunk 2020 & Cyberpunk 3rd ed. Instead of just Cyberpunk , as the cyberpunk community is split of the editions ( much like how it's split between Rolemaster2/Classic & RMSS/RMFRPG in the RM community). BTW any Cyberpunk 3rd. ed fans here ?

    My own soon-to-be-published setting named Inceptum Terminus: Chronicles of the New Confederation for the Hero System 6th Edition. Of course, I'm just biased.
