Hey All!
« on: Yesterday at 07:45:07 PM »
Hi everyone!
My name is Sarah, I am 20 years old and, while I've been roleplaying for about 10 years off and on (text based forums/one on ones/MMORPGs) I never had the opportunity to play a tabletop RPG even though the idea always intrigued me. Very recently though, I discovered a place to find 'online' tabletop groups for games like DnD, Pathfinder, Hero System, etc; and while one day I would like to play an actual tabletop, we had our first gaming session last Saturday (Fantasy Hero System) and it was so much fun. I am definitely hooked. 

I have an idea for a campaign and setting that I want to use with the Hero System when I am more familiar with it and can get comfortable with the idea of being a GM. I stumbled upon this forum in my quest to learn how to write a good campaign and from just the little bit I've seen so far- I quite like it.

I look forward to getting to know more of you and being part of the community!

Welcome, Sarah! You've certainly come to the right place. Lots of juicy campaign/world-building info here, both in the forums and on the main site. Looking forward to seeing your ideas, your feedback, and getting to know you!

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.

Happy to see so many newcomers :)

We love kicking around ideas and all things gaming. I know nothing of Hero, but I've been playing tabletop RPGs for more than 20 years and it can be so much fun. I've recently begun a campaign via Roll20, which is pretty cool technology for those of us stuck in rural areas with few gaming options.

Feel free to hop into chat or post to give us a hint of your ideas and what you need help with.

Greetings and salutations! :mrgreen:
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.
