  1. How is everyone? How is the site doing?
  2. For the most part I working closing shift at work. No one else whom in my position wants to do it, or can it seems. Yet my managers seen that I have been a hard worker, despite my faults and my schedule been consistent for the most part. I been trying to get into a steady two people role play, but it has not been doing well. There always been some sort of problem either on mine or the other's end. I need to work more on my grammar, and writing skills. I been doing a lot of video gaming, but sadly it's been sucked into one game that is a mmorpg/shooter. It's okay, but I been trying to get into a few others games. I have at least finish three games since covid began despite that, but there been a lot of games I been wanting to play that is on my game library that I never played before. Even so I feel at times that playing that particular game is more of a choir then actually having fun. Mostly due to not being able to play with people I know online at the same time. Also something that has recently popped up in a long time is the fact that the place I sign up for table top roleplay's in my area has recently started back up playing games. The only major thing that I am worried about is the massive raise in rent coming up for the place I am in. I am unsure if I am able to pay it. I think I can, but it's still pretty high none the less. I am trying to look into another place to live, but haven't had much luck on that matter. Then again I been having trouble getting into a new place for the past few years.
  3. I am okay. Mostly trying to survive, and have some fun. I am able to survive for now. As for having fun I haven't had much luck, but that's mostly been on my part then anything else. So what you been doing as well?
  4. It's been awhile since I been here and I am curious. How things been going for everyone?
  5. I have a question, even if it's a silly one. I wonder what game do you all think is better. Pathfinder or the current edition of D and D? If you do not think one is better than the other then why? As for me I don't know which is better. I play pathfinder a bit and like certain aspects of it, but I also like d and d as well yet with it I also have aspects I don't like. Yet I haven't play pathfinder in a long time due to the fact there isn't games that I can get to. As for why I like them, they give off mostly good storylines in their campaigns or leagues they do from what I gathered. I am not going into the technical aspects right now, as I think both systems have flaws to them, just wanting to know what everyone thinks about this?
  6. Dear fellow gamers, I am not going to be long with this. As per the gm wishes, I am to quit this game immediately. I am not going to discuss why as to why I am quitting as that is between me and the gm. You do not know the range of emotions I am feeling over the past few days, nor do I care to give them out. I feel like it's pointless at this point to do so as they will not change a thing. I do hope that you all will have fun and joy even as I am not at the metaphorical table with you all. With the best of wishes, AceWildcard
  7. Well that last post you did was quiet interesting. An interesting dream sequence non the less.
  8. At the game: Felix seem curious. "Well that was a interesting. I haven't faced Barghests before. Then again I haven't face a demon in a long time. Yet I am concern if we take more of a beating like that. We may not come out of this." Felix said in character. Flashback: Felix tried to distract himself for a short while. Yet whatever he did his mind came back to the topic he couldn't get out of his mind. He wanted to go to the school. Yet he did not know if he could. Yet if he did not try to at least look into options on how to do so, he could blame himself forever. His fears still reach him. Felix was afraid he could not get into it due to his fears of not being able to pay. His mind had been in a slump due to that. He knew that his parents were not rich people. His parents travel a lot, yet Felix never knew why. He always felt disconnected a bit from schools. Never able to stay there for long. A year or two at the most. Felix wanted some sort of stability in his life. Yet he wonder if his wish was also a sort of curse. The place he currently was in he fear did not have the resources to help him. He did not know where to really look to or start.
  9. Yeah I hopped that more people would reply. But it seems like that the idea is not popular here I guess. Either that or people just don't want to play. I always have ideas for creating new games. Just that I am very inexperience in doing them. Hopefully in the future as people get to know me and how I do things I will come back and ask again.
  10. I will try my best to get it by then. Not giving any guarantees.
  11. I am interested. So when are you going to do this, or start doing this?
  12. I want to run a Dungeons and Dragons game. The problem is I never ran a campaign before so I am uncertain of how I am going to be at it. I know I appear as I am not active on this site. It just that I am not sure still on which game to join at the moment. What I do know is that I am wanting to do something so here it's go. I decided to run the Hoard of the Dragon Queen. It was the first campaign setting for the Dungeon and Dragon 5th edition. I chose it as I felt it was easy for me to start out as a dm. Even so it still has a good mix of adventure and role playing. I am hoping to have four people to start this adventure out with me. If more people join then okay. If not then I understand. Anyways all character will start at level one at the start of the game. If the games ends with success or failure… well that is up to you. Players will start at level one. Characters will use either the standard set score, or ability point buy. As for equipment, refer to the choices that can be made when making a character of that class. There are also two additional backgrounds features in this book, but will replace a background feature: Cult of the Dragon Infliltrator, and Dragon Scholar. Also there is a dice roll of various reasons you would want to be adventuring if you want a bit of randomness in your history. If there is enough players whom want to play im me if you feel curious about these things. Either way tell me how you feel about what I am doing right or wrong with recruiting and starting stories. The setting of the game takes place in the forgotten realms in the region known as the Sword Coast. The road have become more dangerous as of late. Rumors of bandits raiding lone travelers and caravans have been spreading as of late. Yet that does not detract you form your destination. That destination is Greenest, for whatever reasons known only to you.
  13. Thank you. I need to be more bold in that aspect. I am very uncertain of myself since I have not done . I will focus down on what I want to run and go from there.
  14. I have two types of questions to ask about. First question, what does the people here think I should try to be a gm in the first place? If not then what I am lacking in being a gm? I just feel a bit worried about the whole thing and would like some more info or help. The second question is I am thinking on doing or focusing on trying to do a D and D 5th game. If so I have three series of games for it: The Tiamat series, The princes of the Apocalypse, and the Curse of Strahd. Which ones do you want to see played, my experience besides the point? I ask this due to out of curiosity and need for information to see what people like. Also what type of fantasy rp's do you like?
  15. I think it's first edition. I went looking on the web. From what I can tell it's first unfortunately.
  16. I cannot see what you mention. As such I think it's an older edition.
  17. seems interesting. I haven't played the game before, but am willing to try. Just hope I got the right edition.
  18. Okay, I have a few ideas on games that I want to do. Right now I am not in a game and been looking for something to do. So I decided to instead to just run a game and see how it goes for me. I haven't done something like this before, so I am a bit uncertain. I have gm only once online but long ago. I have also only ran one game in real life, and it was semi okay. As such I have split my options into two camps. One such is doing an establish adventure game. The second one is to do a game all of my own. I am interested in doing either or. As such I need advise in doing what. As for establish adventure games. There are three I want to do. One is Curse of Strahd. The second is Princes of the Apocalypse. The third was Rise of the Runelords. As for my game ideas. I have several ideas, yet I worry that a basic explanation is not enough for some of them if not all. I have been working on some of these for some time while others are new. I have a bit of a problem when it comes to picking to something and keeping up with it in the end. Sigh, it's a rather annoying problem. Here are some of the ideas in my head. 1. Super hero game. Basically a virus has infected the general population and caused a zombie outbreak. It's a basic survival style game. Yet not all who get infected turn into zombies. Some people have their DNA altered, that give them basically super hero style powers. Yet for some people it changes them to something far worse. 2. A magical girl/boy or super hero. Basically a mysterious school where the characters gather. I was tied with it being either a sci fi super hero story where they fight against a powerful empire among other things. The magical boy/girl is more of a political style story over what to do with a clear evil. 3. Sci Fi military story or exploration. Basically a golden age, that has come to a close due to a war. It's hard to really say or put it short as to the amount of work I am doing on this one. I personally am still working on this one so I am still uncertain on where to go with it or what to do. 4. Fantasy/Sci Fi. Basically your character died, yet is resurrected on another planet for no reason by a mysterious figure. Open world style rp.
  19. This is pure crazy silly ass shit. Excuse the language. I can see why it makes a good parody.
  20. What do you guys think of this topic being discuss in this article? Do you think it is offensive or no? http://www.msn.com/en-us/lifestyle/whats-hot/the-french-react-to-their-new-%e2%80%98skinny-model%e2%80%99-law/ar-BBnMMyp?li=BBnbfcL&ocid=UE01DHP
  21. I saw this on a website one day and figure you guys might like, or not. Don't really care. I though this was a cool story so I posted it here for people to see. I normally don't do this type of stuff. https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201508/it-s-time-think-gamer?collection=1078375&utm_source=SuperBetter+Active+Users&utm_campaign=7f2995dd52-It_s_Time_to_Think_Like_a_Gamer_UNOPENS&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_9c100b42a6-7f2995dd52-104763913
  22. Here's what I got so far. I have an basic idea on looks, but having problems finding a picture of him in the style I want him to wear for the period. Looks: Cad has short choppy, but somewhat trim dark brown hair. Cad has a pair of dark blue eyes. He has tan skin. He often wears simple but functional clothing that he often works in. He prefers light colors and nothing real flashy, yet what he wears often give a feel of someone whom is a business man in his field of work. He is often seen with his trade mark katana at his side, especially when he is at work. Personality: Has a passion for knowledge and learning. He also has a passion for exploration and traveling to new places. Cad likes to question things and as such is often curious about various topics ranging from the past and present events, to various magic formulas and spells production, to how something is created. Cad can be blunt if not direct in things. He doesn't like arrogant or uptight people. This is especially true with a particular wizard or mage type. He also tries to explain things as easy as he can so people can understand what he is saying when it comes to things in general. He doesn't like to complicate things more in his life then what need to be. Cad has no love towards goblins. That is the same as they often try to kill him and vice versa. Then again he doesn't like it when anything tries to kill him. Yet goblins are for the most part of his life that have been a general thorn in his side for some reason or another. More so then some of the other people he has travel with, which some he might put up there with goblins. Cad cares deeply for his family, even if they give him shit. He is loyal to them and will not insult them. He feels a bit burden on his parents in the past for wanting him to be what they wanted him and it still bugs him a bit. It clashes with Cad's desire to be, well Cad and his desire to be free. Yet he will go to defend his family as well as those whom get close enough to be called his friends. Background: Cad is from a diverse family. His parents were strict and each wanted him to partake of their own profession. Cad's brother had became similar to his father in a long line of soldiers. Cad sister had become like her mother in a long line of alchemist and wizards who were a part of a merchants guild. Yet the problem with Cad was that he was rather talented in both sword and sorcery and could go down either path. Yet Cad did not want either life, yet had cravings of both in a sense. He had his father's wander lust and his mother thirst for knowledge. It is either a recipe for a great hero, or a fools end. Yet with the life Cad's lived so far that could lead him either way. Yet in his child hood, Cad had not yet achieved the understanding of how to best mix swords with magic. Yet his parents knew who could best teach him, yet also was concern about the person. That person was Cad's grandfather, Arthur Hugh, a man who had a great reputation and was in some view a very great and noble person. Yet the organization that Arthur worked for was not in their view either. As such they fear that Cad would some how get involved with the organization Arthur had ties to if he was to train Cad. As such Cad did not know much of his grandfather till their fateful encounter during one of his mother business trips. Along the way they stumble upon some ancient ruins. The place fascinated Cad but concern his parents. More for their son sake then their own. So they, along with the group they were in, moved away from the place in order to find a safer place to spend the night. Yet unfortunately where they camp was not so far as to let Cad slip away to explore it more on his own. As Cad was exploring the ruins he nearly got killed by an nasty trap. Yet he was saved by a group of strangers exploring that ruins in order to unlock a room only accessible at night. Among those strangers was Cad's grandfather yet he did not know that. He escorted Cad to his parents. Cad got scolded by his parents, but the grandfather found a opportunity to offer advice and help. The parents went into an argument till they reach a agreement. They agree to allow Arthur to train Cad as long as he would not be a part of the organization or work with said organization. An agreement Arthur found suitable. Since then Cad has explored several ruins under Arthur guidance and also has explored the world some what. So far he is fascinated in ancient cultures and their past. Now a days he works alone as a part time explorer for people willing to hire him. Yet he has also done some odd jobs here and there for money to live off by. He also helps his family if they need any help as well, most often though no in the they way they intended.
