Hi, all
« on: September 23, 2010, 01:53:35 PM »
Hi. I'm a retired school teacher and have been playing for over thirty years. GMing a Fantasy Hero game now. I was GMing a Dark Champions game for years but it got a bit old. Am thinking of starting an Urban Fantasy when this one peters out.

Found Strolens by accident and I'm very glad I did. Things like "OK, we're in a library. What books do we see?" always before got a "Bunches of regular books. Roll your Spot Hidden. OK, you found a book of herbalism. You now have 5 rare plants that you can recognize." Adequate, but seriously lacking in atmosphere! Now I have all your suggestions to draw from! Tons and tons of good stuff.

I've just found Dropbox <www.dropbox.com> which is a free cloud-based system that we are going to start using to share stuff and collaborate on stuff for our game. Hope it works as well as I think it will.

Well, enough about me. I'll go back to browsing and eventually I'll learn enough about what you do to be able to offer subs of my own.

That was a trap that made you stumble in here and I am glad somebody dropped it on accident.

Dropbox is awesome. I use it to sink my 3 compters with multi-OS's. That way I have a stable area that has stuff that I would like no matter what computer or OS I log into. It is fabulous!  I would think about Google Docs if you are doing collaborative creativity. I have multiple groups that we work on web stuff and Llama stuff and are able to edit and view the same document and it is awesome. Dropbox is good for full file sharing/syncing but Google Docs would be better for collaborative creativity!

Glad you found the site useful!!!

Google Docs, eh? I'll look into it. Thanks, Strolen.

Welcome Ramhir! Glad you found the site useful.

Personally I think it is the best d**n site on the web, but I've been a fixture here for a while so I might be biased. ;)

d**n right it is!

And we all work together to make it best-er, if that makes sense. Well, increasing the margin by which its awesomeness exceeds ... well, the rest of stuff.

So. Welcome and join the fray.
