Hello
« on: February 27, 2008, 09:18:16 PM »
Hi!
I don't normaly join online forums but the information here is amazing. There are some very imaginative gamers here! I hope to talk with everyone in the Citadel eventualy and maybe post some of my own ideas once i feel up to it.

I may also ask advice:p. I have gamed for a long time, first D&D and some rifts though now i prefer GURPS. I have DMd many times but always with little preperation because i had no time to prepare a lot. Now, strangely, i have a lot of time and no one to game with for the next 7 months. As such i am preparing a campaighn world that i hope to be able to use for several years and for several campaighns (I am assuming when 7 months passes i won't have a lot of time left for preparing:p)

Anyways,
Hi All!!!

Hurrah, another gameless roleplayer. Welcome to the land of the dejected DM and gameless player. Funny how that theme continues. That is why I built the site. A couple moves, different area, too hard to reacclimate into the gamer community in different places. I needed a creative vent and found it here, hope you find something to pass your time till your next game as well!

The developing of game worlds is where version 3.0 of the site is headed...if we ever get there. Hobbies sure don't get the time they really deserve, I can tell you that. Hope we can help you out with some of your ideas.

And kooglesnack, yeah, that is just a fantastic name!!! Doing a google search of it you have already made strolens 1 of 3 in that listing. That is sure to be a keyword traffic driver!! I love it!

Well, it may all be a blessing in disguise. I think i can use all of this time to refine and improve my DMing, this sight has really inspired me with all of the creative ideas and good suggestions on how to DM better. I used to despise DMing but about a year ago i started playing GURPS and found my love of DMing growing.

Welcome aboard, kooglesnack!

I look forward to seeing your campaign unfold. You've come to the right place, :up:
Authentic Strolenite™©®

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Aye, welcome.  Have you some Baba Ghanoush.

They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

That has got to be the least appetizing baba ganoush I have ever seen.
