RPGs / Hunter the Vigil Players Needed for Friday, April 22 (Skype)
« on: April 21, 2011, 06:51:40 PM »
Anyone interested in jumping into a NWOD game over Skype tomorrow at 7pm EST (Friday, April 22)?

The Storyteller has pregens ready (6 in total). We have two confirmed players and need at least two more. Anyone interested? Feel free to PM me or email at

You can check out the discussion here:

Veterans or novices are fine. I've never played. The other guy has a bunch.

RPGs / Savage Worlds - Zombiepocalypse Skype Game (SHORT NOTICE)

I've got two players lined up for a Skype game tomorrow at 11AM EST over Skype.  It's the first time I've run SW and figured how hard can zombies eating people be?  Pregens are ready to go.  This is going to be "realistic" or more likely movielike.  PM me if interested or email

When is the planned date?

I would absolutely be interested in either.  Because I like Fear Itself so much, I'd vote for that.  If it helps, I'm probably free around New Years as I'm not traveling much this year and actually have some vacation time.

Wow, you guys are so far off.  The doctor definitely told Rick that his father touched his butthole.

Seriously though, it was a great episode to end the season and I'm sure Aaron was right on his guess.  That makes the most sense for a number of reasons.  I'm glad my concerns were unfounded.  It was so much better than I expected based on the commercial.

I can't help feeling like The Walking Dead is on the verge of "jumping the shark".

My gut feeling is based on the preview for the season finale and to be perfectly honest the non-canonical storyline looks really, really lame.

I feel like AMC has missed the mark here, especially because the source material is so strong and seems so easily adaptable to television.

Some might argue the excessive violence of the graphic novel essentially kills any chance of a faithful television adaption, but I think the violence and sexual undertones that appear in the source material could be easily toned down while retaining the best elements of the original story.

Ross, I'm curious as to what you think?

I'm glad someone else thinks this based on the preview.  I was very disheartened by the microscope scene with the two stupid cells fusing and doing something assy looking.  As a scientists, it was just ridiculous.  They should not try to explain the outbreak and the upcoming episode is worrying me greatly.  I won't judge it without seeing it, but the last two episodes have not gone the way I would want them to.

I don't think it has to stick to the comic story line.  I do think it should stay in line with the tone and ideas presented.  It has so much potential to be amazing and so much potential to totally ruin itself.  Let's hope for the former.

I could never keep up with two episodes a week. Then I'd be way behind and get discouraged. If you do release more, I'd do my best.

I posted our run of the Dark Sun Worldwide Game Day adventure this week. If you want to hear how NOT to encourage someone to DM ever again the first time they try it, then give it a listen. What did Jason think would happen anyway?

Damn you Ross.  I just listened to the new episode and we were also planning on running a Dark Sun campaign with the potential for rotating DMs.  I swear it was totally independent of your idea (Jason is even running rather than me to start).  It does scare me that our groups came up with the same thing at the same time.  Freaky. 

Anyway, Tondi on the NerdBound forums is also starting a new idea as well.  Players can sign up for Skype one-shots that will help build out an overall world depending on the decisions they make and how successful they are.  I'm pretty booked up right now, but I'd love to listen to some episodes if people get them together.

Check it out at

Oh no! Does that mean you can't play if I start a Dark Sun game on the NB Forums?

Play by Post / Re: Rogue Trader game. Not play by post exactly.

Also would anyone be willing to join the Rogue Trader play by post over at the NerdBound forums. We could use another person or two and I would really appreciate it. Also I am offering a ransom of the Dark Heresy Inquisitor's Handbook for sustained contribution (PDF not hardcopy).

RPGs / Trail of Cthulhu Skype game tomorrow

Tomorrow, Sunday July 18 at 2PM EST I'll be running a reprisal of the Castle Bravo ToC game over Skype. We can accommodate 1-3 more folks. First come, first served.

You aren't going to be in bed like the Rogue Trader game right?

Gary shrugs and follows the man out of the room. "don't worry sir, we'll take good care of you."

Gary walks to the Briefingbot and takes his papers to read.

"Hey guys, let's all read the brilliant and perfect instructions given to us by Friend Computer."

He reads the papers and tries to duck the stray laser shots and spit form Winsmith.

"Friend Computer, this commie traitor is trying to read highly classified documents beyond his clearance level!  I will terminate him immediately before he can leak this information to his communist, mutant friends!  I will also deal with Harold because I know he is thinking about it too.  Better safe than sorry."

Gary pulls his laser and tries to end Winsmith.  He also tries to kill Harold in the process.

Gary looks over at Harold, "Your tardiness shows blatant disrespect for Friend Computer.  I expect significantly more loyalty from you in the future.  Now volunteer for something."

Management - 6

He then proceeds to try and make Winsmith's brain look much more like his face.  "Good as new!  I can barely tell that grey matter isn't your eyebrow."

Disguise - 12

(2): Total = 2
