I know, I know, boring thread is boring.  I'm just curious what games everyone has bought as opposed to actually played.

I might as well whip it out first (HUR HUR I'M A COMEDIC GENIUS).

     (* denotes played)
  • All Flesh Must Be Eaten
  • Best Friends
  • Breaking the Ice
  • Contenders
  • Call of Cthulhu
  • DnD 3.5*
  • DnD 4th Ed.
  • Dust Devils*
  • Inspectres*
  • Intergalactic Cooking Challenge
  • L5R 2nd Ed.
  • L5R 3rd Ed.
  • MAID: the RPG
  • Monsters and Other Childish Things
  • The Mountain Witch
  • The Mouse Guard Roleplaying Game
  • Mutants and Masterminds
  • Ninja Burger: The RPG
  • Piledrivers & Powerbombs
  • Pirates of the Spanish Main
  • Polaris
  • Rifts
  • Savage Worlds Explorer's Edition
  • The Shab Al-Hiri Roach
  • Spirit of the Century
  • Super Gachapon Fighter Omega Infinity
  • Traveller (Mongoose)
  • Universalis
  • Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
  • Wilderness of Mirrors
  • The World of Darkness

A single tear rolls down my cheek when I think of all the games I've yet to play.

Ross, that is beautiful.

I think Wilderness of Mirrors would be awesome to hear you guys try out.  All Flesh Must Be Eaten would be really cool, too (or hell, anything with zombies).

As a side note, I demand everyone go listen to the Bear Swarm! Actual Play of InSpectres.  America Van Buren has my vote.

I tend to prefer a rounder edged die, keeping at least on in my hand to fiddle with like a worry stone.  I store all my dice in old wasabi pea cans that I cleaned out.
I recently discovered my main set of dice are missing, so it looks like my clear bourbon-colored dice will see the light of day no more.  That set saw me through a 2 year D&D campaign before I started experiencing my current gamer drought.

By the way, does Chessex still sell those Pound-O-Dice bags?  I bought a buy-one-get-one-free deal on eBay, literally 2 POUNDS OF DICE, further propagating my apparent dice fetish.  Speaking of which, my girlfriend works at Junior Achievement, so she brings home big bags of supplies they don't have any use for every now and then, so she'll unload huge "gifts" of d6's and plastic-chit/tiddlywink-type-things much to my appreciation.

I listen to Save Against Frostbite occasionally.  They're okay, but honestly I think they try too hard to be edgy with their "yeah, we went there" moments.  I did enter in their logo contest earlier this month, though.

As for podcasts, I'm not going to rate them 1-10, but I will give the 10 I listen to most often:
  • Bear Swarm! Podcast
  • Brilliant Gameologists
  • Fear the Boot
  • The Game Master Show
  • The Independent Insurgency
  • The Podge Cast
  • Radio Free Hipster
  • RPPR
  • RPGMP3 Community Podcast
  • Theory From the Closet

I also subscribe to Ask A Ninja, Decoder Ring Theater, Save Against Frostbite, Radio Lab, and IPR's Voice of the Revolution.

I used to listen to Dragons Landing and Geek By Night, but they both haven't had any new content in months.

EDIT: Woohoo,  I won the SAF logo contest!  Free RPG book, here I come!

I used to be on these forums under the name Piklom.
The oekakis attached are pretty wanktastic as well.

Well, now comes the question of the boy-to-girl poster ratio is.

Very true, now that I think about it.

Note To Self: never play in PbP games with teen girls, even if they are your friends by proxy.

The thing that got my brain ticking about all this was the Brilliant Gameologists Sode #24: Rule 0

It's fascinating stuff, check it out.

Is it possible to have PbP games that don't devolve into fervent wank-fests?  In my experience it always gets pretty ridonkulous.

« on: May 28, 2009, 05:46:19 AM » has an RPG section:
This is from the BBS and newsgroup days, so some of the AD&D content cracks me up.
There is stuff worth picking over, though.
Awesome graph paper generator that saves to pdf.

RPGs / Beating A Dead Horse (or why system matters to me)
« on: May 28, 2009, 04:38:56 AM »
I thought I'd put something out here that I've been thinking about for the past couple of days and can't get out of my head.
The rules in RPGs are made to promote a certain style of play that the designer or designers want to facilitate.  If you're using a certain system, it's assumed that you want to play/run a certain way that this system promises.  If you are house-ruling, modding, and/or kludging an RPG, why are you even playing that game in the first place?  Discuss.

Also, here's some food for thought: Oberoni Fallacy (noun): The fallacy that the existence of a rule stating that, ‘the rules can be changed,’ can be used to excuse design flaws in the actual rules. Etymology, D&D message boards, a fallacy first formalized by member Oberoni.

I bought the original core rulebook at half-price a month ago just to see what all the hubbub was about Rifts was.  It pretty much melts my brain.  Everything in it seems like it came out of a middle schooler's wet dream.  Even so, the imagery of the Coalition soldiers would be good for a future sci-fi game.
