Hello y'all!

Post by MisterJuan » Mon Apr 03, 2017 8:00 pm

Where to start... Just saying "hey what's up" seemed a little short, so I guess I better try something else. Well, I've been playing RPGs for a rather long time (since my days as a wee little lad in elementary school); cut my teeth on AD&D 2nd edition, which looking bad, wasn't the best RPG book to give to a 9-year-old. I've been doing PBPs for about 15 years, give or take, with a HUGE chunk of my teens spent over at Dumpshock, playing WAY too much Shadowrun. Since becoming somewhat of a responsible adult, I've been dipping back into PBPs because it gels well with my wonky schedule. I do try to run tabletop games when I can, but getting a group together is always a bit of a hassle.

When it comes to systems I like and enjoy, I find I've been drawn to either the very simple (Delta Green, Call of Cthulhu, everything that's run with GUMSHOE) or the more complex (like A Song of Ice and Fire, Pendragon and Eclipse Phase)

What brings me here: now that falls into a few categories. PBP, that's for sure, but I'm also looking for a place to just bounce ideas around.

I guess that covers everything!

Oh! Another thing; English is NOT my first language, so I've always seen PbP as a nice way to keep in linguistic shape :)

Welcome aboard,

We have at one or another had a game in all the systems you mentioned except for Delta Green. I think you'll find us welcoming and friendly, with a pretty active, if not smaller, player base. Check out the Master Game List from the Quick Links section for an overview, but if you see a game you'd like you like to join just message the GM and see what he has to say. Welcome!

And I never would have guessed the ESL component.

Thanks! I have to admit that Grammarly does a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to hiding that fact ;)

Welcome to the site. I'd certainly not have picked up on the language thing either.

That's a very very good question to which I don't think I have a definitive answer. I think I might have just stumbled on the place while looking for ASOI&F gaming material. I think.

I also drink a lot so maybe it's just that... 8-)

Welcome to the site. I think a lot of us do PbP because it's the easiest thing with "grown up" work schedules.
