Greetings Traveler / Greet & Meet
« Last post by Apocryphal on April 26, 2015, 10:18:41 PM »

I found this place through a link on RPG.net. Since lately I've been looking for a place to bounce my RPG one-shot scenario ideas off people and get constructive feedback, I joined. I've been playing RPGs since 1980 or 81. My favourite is RuneQuest, but there are several games that I enjoy - mainly games that are traditional in structure, but not necessarily old. D&D (and all its iterations) isn't one of those though. Finding places to talk about traditional games that aren't OSR is getting pretty hard these days, it seems. Everywhere it's either OSR or Story/Indie games. It's kind of like take out pizza - all the choices are either vegetarian or meat-lovers these days. The people who like both meat AND vegetables are left out!

So I would mostly be posting ideas for things that really aren't very D&D-like, but still pretty trad. Many of these ideas are inspired by literature or history. Judging by the fact that my ideas are usually met by the internet equivalent of blank stares, they must be pretty 'out there' (or maybe they're actually too mundane?). Whichever it is, I'm looking for a community that will accept them for what they are and respond with solid feedback.

Browsing the site, I see several references to voting on topics. I'm not really interested in taking part in popularity contest, especially considering my ideas probably seem pretty esoteric to most gamers. So I'm curious to hear more about the voting, and whether it really is important or not.

Thanks for reading.

hi, sorry for long absence, my muse has gotten swallowed by real life so...

Now things are settling around more so I'm hoping to make my post either tmr or the day after.

Also, Lanfear, welcome onboard, would be great to have another player on this, esp. since our attributes seems somehow complementary to each other.

Carnegie sprang up and seized Asha's hand, stroking the back of it protectingly as she checked for burns. "Are ye alrite?! A-ah didn't know it wuz gonna do dat!"

She eyed the content of the locker. "Mmm, ye... Always. Dis's really weird, de power's out on errythang else, but dese lockers r electrified?... We need ta git de power back on running on de workbench somehow."

Always did like his depiction of the Grim Reaper, more human than many humans I know. I hope Hollywood doesn't loot his legacy anytime soon.

I figured I'd switch the words around and it'd still make sense. Though I'm not the first and won't be the last!

I've been away from Strolen's for longer than I'd like. Real life has been a seemingly insurmountable struggle in recent months. I believe that we all go through these 'moments' and come out stronger, with a clearer sense of purpose. I hope I have finally found mine.

I'm back, but I'd like to wipe the slate as the saying goes. I don't think I'll be able to continue in the RP's that I signed up for and made multiple promises to go back to which I then left unfulfilled. I'm sorry about that. I feel as though I've completely lost touch and it would be impossible to reach that level of immersion again. After reading through some of both RP's I notice that I've completely alienated myself.

With that in mind, I'd like to withdraw from both. If a new RP is announced in the future and I decide and am allowed to participate, I will do my utmost to avoid a repeat of what has happened.

I've started reading submissions again and am going to concentrate on Scras' 500 Word Archery challenge as my 'comeback' submission.

I've missed y'all!

Thank you for posting these Goss!

I felt sad when I heard about his passing. I loved his books and read most of them growing up. I think I will need to re-read them. Though I still haven't read the new ones. There's a project lined up!

The message on his Twitter account was a nice touch I think. Though if that was his idea I don't know.

It has been too quiet. I've been gone :P

Jokes aside this looks like something I could get behind!

Asha cursed and gave a glowering look to the rest of the lockers, looking over at Doc West. "Happen to have any rubber gloves in your medical kit? I could use them to get around the charge these lockers have."

She gave the locker a quick inspection gesturing to the tools and batteries, "Anything in here you can use Carnegie?"

Then write. So write. Write then. Keep writing. Don't stop writing Scras. You're an original.
