To be blunt, this shite belongs in the forums in the thread already discussing it, not moldering on the front page where it will distract members from game ideas and give the wrong impression to new visitors that are thinking about joining the site. Go to Comment

I've always loved the idea of a one-worshipper god. Makes me giggle every time. Go to Comment

This is the first 100 word Oekaki I have ever seen.

Was Xord always this way?

What values will a cleric of Xord have to follow?

What happens if you gather a bunch of new Xord followers?

So Xord can only support one cleric at a time, does that mean if Xord gives a newcomer the job some other dude just has the rug pulled out from under him?

Could there be an advantages to being THE cleric of Xord:

Short lines at the altar.

Can take your GOD with you everywhere. LIterally.

Don't have to shell out tons of coin buying gifts for the other faithful on your Xord Birthday.

No need to hire some artist to render a likeness of Xord in your temple, you can just put Xord on the altar.

Can introduces yourself as the high priest of Xord on your first day. Go to Comment

XORD, (a) WAR GOD, is seeking a new Supreme Cleric of Carnage (SCC).



Applicants must travel to the Seven Armie’s Battlefield, and present themselves directly to Xord. Applicants must be able to work independently, and have a penchant for pitched battles of attrition. The SCC is the only holy servant of Xord in the universe, and thus you will be free of many of the ministerial duties that characterize other religions, as you will have no flock to tend. The SCC's primary responsibility is to be the benefactor of any warrior that found himself to be the last man standing.

I would think this would be better in the forums. This doesn't seem like a sub but more like a conversation piece. I really can't put to words what I want to say about this really. Go to Comment

Mourngrymn's point is well taken. A list of facts and roughly sorted recollections would be better received in the forums. So would this back and forth you are trying to initiate with your readers. Perhaps a more formal personal essay or magazine style article is what this topic deserves. Write it like you love it and respect it.

Another option would be to put forth some kind of interactive timeline that will help organize the Citadel Content you derived from the campaign.

You could include you little recollection and tributes to your friends. I do find this really interesting, but do you have a goal in mind for the finish product of this write-up?

Yeah sorry about that, I was imaging some sort of Rolling Stone type memoir article that upon conclusion would leave me with a misty smile and slow agreeable head nod saying to myself "Damn, that is really how it was, I am not alone."

While this may not be as polished (or dare I say self-important) as some other subs. It has heart! Or truth! Or perhaps it has the type of self aware sincerity you find in high school year books. At the end the day we couldn't honestly say the year book staff was doing it for the school, cause us kids in gen-pop could care less. It was all about the yearbook, and the Yearbook (putting all the pictures together, making pages for each group) was a justification in and of itself.

And though the year book was small in a scope, short on originality and put together by wildly over confident amateurs I would wager it held more personal weught for its publishers than the last issue of playboy or the new yorker did their own. It had sincerity.



So there are few things as tender or as sincere as well done year book. So I salute this post.....*sniff*



Because this is about gaming, and damn it I gamed.



Because the way Aramax puts it is how it was man, that is really how it was.

Well I have been following your campaign retrospective and I do think you are just putting notes together but I am still interested.

What would you say the initial appeal of roleplaying was for you?

Did the things that appealed to you about gaming change over the years and how so?

First off,worse than going though my notes,Im having to remember everything! That's why it's going to be hit or miss.

My attitude toward rping initially was non-existant.I learned the game in a war gaming group that mostly played WW2 mini's and to me a D&D night was a night I didn't get to kill Nazi's.Slowly my war gaming became less and less and more D&D.It was a quick step to DMing.

Now to me it is performance art. A vent for my creative juice in EXACTLY the way I want to use it.That's what makes DMing great,the fact that you tell the exact story that your players puzzle over. Go to Comment

In 1974 ,I was 14 I had been playing board games for 2 years.My only knowlage of gaming came from what little was in Analog Magazine. I had purchased Melee mail order . It was a man on man battle game.I made a campaign set in a post apocalyptic setting centered around random monsters and treasure(9 volt batteries).
I had invented D&D , being unaware of it's existence!!! How many other peeps had made this leap too?
RPG's were inevitable. Go to Comment

I'm not sure of the year,but at a convention I made the acquaintance of Tom Moldvey(best known for his Giants of the Earth series in Dragon Magazine of TSR.. We got into a discussion of how primitive the idea of a campaign published by the major companies of the time were, I made an appointment to meet with him Sunday morning and show him my game. I chickened out. They bought Forgotten Realms, now Ill be the first to admit that Realms is way more in depth than my world was.But what if I had gone to that meeting? Go to Comment

You were the one who suggested a sub. I was thinking forum before you said that,now I'm in too deep. No , I do not have an end game, I was kinda gonna keep adding things until I felt that it was a good memoir.I don't see me spending more than the next week on it.Ill get bored and move on.Plus this is not my future in gaming,I have to get on with that.

GM RULE #2 TRY TO SAY "YES"
When it matters and sometimes when it doesn't say "yes",especially if the table is chanting for it! Change something,let a player hit who missed by one,don't even make them roll if it's a great plan.Say "yes"!
(very true of a lot of less than critical situations)
