Resistance is futile... You will be assimilated.
For a few months in 2006, I had a regular gaming group, but a job opportunity for me called me away from Southwest Georgia to Southwest Florida. We have a game shop here in Naples, but all anybody wants to play is D&D 3.5.
For me it was so hard to game because of my work schedule and family. But I would like to take this chance to thank Farcaster personally, and the rest of you (you know who you are). Because of this site I have been able to increase my gaming to at least 2 a week because of Play by Posts that were supported by this site.
I hope to Find or create a group within my area soon, but I would also love to see more PbP games for myself and others to play.
I wish there was a not nearly enough option. It's been never lately but I have been invited to a game thanks to this site. Now I just have to get my wife to let me go. Back when I was stationed in Germany with the army we used to play my WoD game every friday from 6pm till my brain hurt(usually somewhere between 1 and 3am). Then do one of the other 3 campaigns we were running on Saturday from noon till midnight.
Oh, by the way, I do mean my brain would hurt. 10 regular players in all campaigns and 4 more who played 2 of the 4. 12 in my game!!!!!!!! Very free form. Basically I had a book with 85 npcs ranging from generics(not even a name often cannon fodder) to majors(almost as much screen time as the pcs). Keeping track of all that was a major ordeal. Luckily never had to do much to keep everybody interested as they kept trying to kill each other without getting caught.
Twice a week, every week.
That's both much better and far, far worse than anything I came up with to say.
"Why would I want hamburger when I have filet mignon everyday!"
- Maryann Siembieda, talking on rpg.net about why she has never played any RPG but Palladium and why PB doesn't keep a reference library of other rpgs on-hand.
I try to game once per week, but sometimes that means twice some weeks and not at all on others. Right now my wife and I do not have any kids though and I suspect I shall be forced into MMORPGs for 6 months to 2 years if that ever happens.
You should preemptively introduce them to RPG's, real RPG's.
Remember, it's important to turn your kids into geeks early on, so they can be ostracized into coming up with some invention or creative project to make them rich later on!!
