Hello, everyone.
« on: August 06, 2004, 07:42:06 AM »
Hello.  I  just wanted to introduce myself, as a new member of the forums.  This site is an amazing resource and I'm very glad to have found it.

I've been gaming for quite a while now, and just recently stepped behind the DM screen for the first time.  I'm running a 3.5 D&D (first 3.5 game for most of my players.  We stuck to 2nd edition for a long time) based in a homegrown world that's just on the verge of industrialism.  It's been going well, but we've been thrown for a loop recently when one of the players moved away.  We'll recover, but it's sort sad to have lost him.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to participating here.  There aren't a lot of gamers in the town where I live.  Most are in my gaming group already so it' not really an option to discuss ideas with them, since they might wind up having to play them.  It will be nice to be able to interact with like-minded people.  :)

"Aaah, welcome, my psychotic elven friend!" A horribly clichèd black-robed figure steps ominously from the shadows, his monotonous voice pausing for a moment whilst he peers this newcomer up and down. "You may call me... Shadoweagle. T'is always to see newcomers in this place. Allow me to be the first to welcome you. Things to beware of include Grog-soaked grass. Penguins in Pirate gear. Flying grog barrels. Antlered squirrels... Er, you'd want to be especially wary of those. Theres a talking one in here who keeps proclaiming he owns this place..." The man shakes his head as though in utter bafflement before blinking, "Oh, and you may eventually notice that some people in this place are not exactly what you or I would call 'sane'." On that note, Shadoweagle turns and begins walking in the opposite direction, incoherently muttering something about page 43 of a dictionary, three cups of creaming soda with silly-straws in them and combining those ingredients as part of a scheme of global domination.

A middle aged man wearing a tattered brown robe sits in the corner of the citadel Taverna, his head against the wall. As you enter he smiles and nods. "Welcome Stranger" he says before he once again drifts into thoughts about his upcoming campaign.

A man made lights, curved like a string of lustrous pearls around the neck of an exotic Dhampiri princess, showing the way towards a black hump-backed shadow rising out of the undulating land.
And behind its bulk must be the sea for Michael could already scent the salt tang.
Michael took his place beside Ancient Gamer, trying to get the man involved in a game of stones. Then suddenly, without warning he he cries;
"Ah new face, welcome!!!!"

The thin young woman with messy blond hair looks up from the pile of scrolls and books she has gathered around her to return the greetings.  She tucks her bare feet under her and goes back to her reading, taking notes on a sheet of parchment titled "good ideas."  Her green eyes sparkle in the low light and she smiles mischievously to herself.

A fellow elf walks up to the new-comer her long chesnut locks flowing gently behind her. Her granny smith green apple eyes twinkle as her lip crinkles into a moon shaped smile. " Hello dear one my name is Adel. I greet you with great welcome. I hope that you will enjoy your stay. May it be productive! We may strike you as odd company but I assure you we are all harmless, creative, and friendly." Adel offers her hand in a sign of welcome. " Put her there partner!" :wink:

The darkness shrouds a tall, young girl standing in the corner, wearing a long black cloak, listening with intent to every word spoken, she steps a few paces forwards into the light, her long glossy black hair bouncing on her back as she walked over to the table, she bent down looking in each direction before speaking in a slow, but raspy voice "Welcome, Its always nice to see newcomers, I hope you settle in nicely. We may not all be sane, but believe me, we are all as nice as each other, i hope you enjoy staying here, and i hope you make lots of new friends" without another glance, she strode out the door, and down a dark alleyway pulling her hood over her head.

Yet another elf turns up to say hello, but can't quite pluck up the nerve and sends a small imp to do it instead.
(Don't worry - the imp's harmless.)
I thought therefore I was, but then YOU started thinking and that really put me off.

"I must confess, I am one of the very few humans here," A plain looking man wearing small round spectacles, and carrying an armload of books, maps and scrolls says.

"My name is Scrasamax, most here call me Scras. I am something of a linguists, military historian, and researcher of arcane, and philantropic lore. You are in good company, provided you have no aversion to the many penguins, ale soaked and otherwise, who wander the halls here. We will occassion into a shouting match or two here, but we are all friends, or at least I think we are."

"If you will excuse me," he says with a slight bow, as much as can be managed with an armload of papers and books, "I bid you welcome, albeit a late one, to the Citadel. Now I must go and finish my treatise on the value of good equitation in the execution of a flanking maneauver...have you any horses?"

Your move then, but maybe we should move the game to another area so we do not interfere to much with this welcome post :D

A lightly bearded man clad in a tattered black coat and reeking of stale ale,strolls in merrily, before calling out a friendly greeting to the little elf in the corner. ''Hey there,my little elven friend. Let me introduce myself to you. I am Maggot, the outcast whom  every one turns their noses up at,though I cannot for the life of me, say why. Ale  does have a charming smell. I do hope you aren't as stuck up as most of the other elves I've encountered in my travels. For some reason,they always turned  away a hungry,tired wayfarer like myself and with arrows pointed at me, no less!Honestly,from their reaction you'd think I was some low life beggar or bandit..''

Maggot throws himself behind a table and begins pleading with the elven maid Adel and Captain Penguin,to spare his miserable life.'' Arrhgh! Mercy good sir and lady!I only spoke thus from ignorance and not out of malice. How will I be able to repent if your vicious hounds tear me to bits?!''
