Patrick's Going to Run a Skype Game
« on: December 14, 2010, 07:24:08 PM »
Some time over the x-mas break, I'm considering running a Skype game. (This game is unrelated to Kickstarter reward games either that Ross is running or that I would play in.) So I'm taking suggestions on what to run and asking who would want to play?

The two games I'm considering are

1) CoC Modern / DG game where the players are hired to investigate a rash of robberies of mythos related items.

or

2) A Fear Itself game where the players are a S.W.A.T. members who have to enter a Content Screening office where the employees have gone crazy and started killing one another and barricaded themselves in for no apparent reason.

I'd be absolutely willing to play in either.

I would enjoy playing Fear Itself.

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.

I would like to play if schedule permits.  The first one sounds interesting (as I've kind of wanted to give the DG scenario a try).  Another question/suggestion is the old pbp you had started but were unable to continue (the one with 3.5 commoners).  I was quite invested in my basket weaver ;D

We will definitely play this via Skype. I need to write up the rules/logic of the game so that I can run it more smoothly on the fly.

No planned date yet because I wanted to see when people are free, plus I'm not sure when my in-laws are leaving town. It'll probably be around New Years or just after.

Fear Itself but that's because I know what you have in mind for that - also the rules are better for skype - less dice rolling and fewer stats to track

Changed my preference to Fear Itself if I can play as I haven't played it yet...

But that's just if I am fortunate enough to play...

If there's room after all the rest of them or if anyone drops out, i'll be pleased as punch if you'd let me join in.

If the game works out well, I'll run it twice.

Alright, ya'll I've got an update. The (first of two possible) Fear Itself games will be on December 28 with character creation beginning at 6:00pm CST and game time starting at 7:00pm CST. The first five to respond are in this game. Also, assume that Ross is playing because he'll be recording unless he tells me how to do it.

Continued interest.

I'll have a character before the game if we can get some game background. I have the book.

I'm writing out all my game notes now. I had the other game written out, but this one was still in draft stage and notes.

I will play.  I don't have any plans as of the moment, but I need to check on potentially traveling, so if I can't, I will know by Friday.  I don't know much (read nothing) about Fear itself, though I will look for quick-start rules or a basic outline so I can have some idea.  But if this is a problem, let me know and I'll drop out or whatever.

Thanks
