Dark_dragon says hello!
« on: February 05, 2007, 01:31:47 PM »
Hi all!
I've been reading around the citadel for about two month now, and signed up/posting comments for about two weeks.

In term of gaming, I have wanted to play and GM RPGs for about three to four years, but due to lack of a gaming group, I have only started in september last year (2006). Since then I have been playing in a noir Werewolf/Vampire unpublished indie game(www.edgewalkers.co.uk), at my Uni gaming club. Its not bad, but since its still in alpha testing stages, and the GM lacks experience (his first game), it can be a rough ride.

On a wider note, I am a huge fan of the Fudge derived FATE system. In fact i would advise every gamer to at least download the free pdfs from the fate website (links at the botom of post). FATE is one of the main reason I have come to hate attributes based system.

As for genre, my personal tastes/interests go from D&D style fantasy (but no d&d rules please! i borrowed the books and nearly gave up on roleplaying! i dont know how pure d&d people do it!) right through to cyberpunk (shadowrun sounds like a great setting) as well as modern noir/horror/tension games.

I actually found the citadel while googling for ideas and (for a lack of a better word) 'props' to add to a campaign setting I was developing. I found so much more!!! In fact, I intend  to GM this campaign starting in September this year(2007), and will probably be posting much of the info somewhere in here before it gets played.

Now, that might seem a bit pretentious after only a single year of being a player, but we'll see how this plays out... :wink:

This seems to be is a fantastic site,  :up:, And I hope to give justice to the hard work and creativity of the people here!

fate link: www.faterpg.com (The system, as well as the supplementary pdf "The pyramid revisited" cannot be recommended enough, and are free too. The fate based Spirit Of The Century pickup game is also fantastic)

Welcome to the Merry and the Mad, O Dragon of the Dark!

Don't worry about being pretentious; after you have been gaming longer, you will realize that a pretentious guy is mandatory in every gaming group.  I was pretentious once myself, but have since moved on to arrogance.

Sweet! I say jump right into that GM chair if you feel like doing it. It is for the fun of the game, after all, and if you think you will have fun doing it then do it. :)

Welcome and welcome.  May your posts be interesting and your life plesent.

Dark_Dragon, hop on the wagon. We're going for a ride so grab a flagon. Of what? Mead, of course, but don't give it to the horse or we shall never travel along a good course. But what the hell! Let the horse drink, we shall ride far and have much time to think! ...and that is what we do here at Strolen's magical Citadel!

Greetings, this has been Pieh, yes, Pie.
