General Discussion / Re: Thorkhammer
« on: January 30, 2018, 03:37:07 PM »
I have not seen thorkie much recently, but my forum activity has been down quite a bit. Last I saw of him he was posting on ODD74 and the ruins of murkhill forums. I just checked RoM and he was active earlier this month. He was active on DF around the same time as well. I have him on skype, so if I see him pop up sometime soon, I'll throw him a shout. I know he regularly takes breaks for forums.

I definitely see social media taking over forums place. I see facebook groups, G+ pages, and reddit as strong centers of discussion and forums slowly dwindling. 5e being so widely accepted certainly hurts the case for the OSR, as I know many OSR folks are happy to run 5e for a wider audience and just tweak it for their style.

I had been looking for throkie for close to a year now. I am thinking seriously about dumping 99% of my social media/forum sites I visit. Only keeping maybe 2% of my contacts. This is due largely because it seems if you are not bitching about politics or showing how your feelings got hurt over by the mean world folks just ignore your posts. I don't hang around where it is obvious I am not welcome. So I am going to stick with private messages. Social media is not very social at all. Shame too.

The problem with discord & other sites like it is that there never seems to be anybody on to talk with. Which is a shame because I am looking for help in a project. I put word out on the facebook, discord (different groups), g+ & others only to be ignored. It is frustrating to ask for help & not get any replies. This is also strange to me because not too long ago folks helped each other out.

Anyway that's my 2cents worth. I wonder when my project is ready for money to start going out to artists, lay out designers, & editors if I will still feel alone like I am talking to a wall?

I like it the way it is. I mean, if it is too whatever for that listener remember they can pause the broadcast themselves with their podcast player.

Yes they can. If you are talking about magical weapons or items, have a monster that puts off a Dispel Magic bubble around itself. Something else you can do is have monster attacks that effect their attribute scores. In other words monsters can have any type of effect on your players that you want them to.

The game system I have completed the rules to (am now trying to get the GM section of rule book finished) allows just what you are talking about. You can be a whatever & learn a skill from another class. It does not change what you are ie fighter, thief, whatever, but just gives you another class ability to use.

First Edition AD&D / Re: creating a new class

I would say check out the original description of the cleric class from the LBB. They were just that, Van Helseng type evil & undead hunters. You could use that & just call em monks. Just a thought.

So when is the next AP Podcast? As in a new one. Vince would not have to DM it I know how busy he is. If something can be put together I would love to play in it. Heck I might even be down to GM it using my game system. Thoughts?

Looking For Games/Gamers / Looking for playtesters
« on: August 29, 2017, 11:25:41 PM »
I have re-written one of the 0 level Origin Adventures for my game design. I am looking for 4-6 play testers to run through it to work the kinks out. The game will take place on Skype. If interested please look me up on facebook under Christopher Todd. Most here I believe are on my friends list so finding me should be easy.

I have no time set as of yet, but am thinking of a Friday PM meeting for the game. The date can be worked out as the group comes together.  Everyone that signs up will receive the Base Package of the Dungeoneer Book (player's HB). I am almost finished with the GM section, which means I am heading down the home stretch in the final re-write.

I will be looking for play testers of other adventures that I am also working on that will be part of the game once it hits the market.  Though these adventures are not yet ready for play testing.

So if you want to experience a fantasy RPG that is rules light, fun & made for first timers to the hobby join up. I really could use the help.

Find me on the Facebook or respond below. I will check back once  a day in the evenings to give more info to those that want to help out.

Thanks to everyone for the help.

Sincerely,
mojo

Thanks for the responses. I picked 7-22 because it is 1 day after my birthday & was going to run my game as a b-day gift to myself. As it stands now there may not even be a game play. I have 2 for sure signed up & 1 maybe.

Was telling Dizzy in message response about the frustration & disappointment at the lack of interest.  Since social media is not the correct platform to garner attention right now I will be stepping away from facebook, this site, & tweeter to go to my plan b. If that does not work then the last 6 years of my life have been wasted. If that is the case I will never hear the end of it from my wife who is very anti-gaming.

here's hoping not to get kicked in the gut by life again.

Save for Half Podcast / Hey DM Mike!!
« on: July 08, 2017, 08:23:17 PM »
I sent you, DM Liz, & DM Corbin an personal invite to be part of the Fun Test I am hosting on Skype soon. I got a thumbs up but don't know if that means yes one, some, or all of you are in; or Thanks but no thanks.

I started general sign ups today 7-8-17 here, & will start general sign ups on Facebook this coming Tuesday.  I don't know if y'all have discussed it or not but need to know how many if any of the Save for Half Podcast will be part.

The time & date is not yet set. I am waiting until I have the 6-8 players signed up to pick a Saturday when everyone can play.

I wanted to invite you 3 because of all the help y'all have provided me over the years, & want you guys & gal to be part of  now 6 years worth of work coming together finally.

Sorry to bug, & for the long post. I absolutely love Save for Half!!

Thank you for your time,

Forgot to mention, but those that sign up will receive the art free, word doc un edited, version of the game. Also be sure to roll up multiple characters for your 0 Level Origin Adventure.

General Discussion / Now taking sign ups
« on: July 08, 2017, 08:05:08 PM »
I posted on the Facebook that I would begin taking sign ups next week. I figure I will give the folks here the first shot at it.

I am taking 6-8 people to be part of my Fun Test. The time & date have not been set. I will wait & see what time would be best for everyone that signs up.  The game will be played on Skype on a Saturday. The session will last about 3-4 hours & will cover a 0 level Origin Adventure & a First Adventure. One will lead straight into the next.


I have invited DM Good Mike, DM Liz, & DM Corbin from Save for Half, but have not heard any response. Also I have 2 of the original play testers sitting in.

 I will be taking 1 or 2 from Facebook, if any there want to play, & will use this site to fill the rest. Assuming anybody actually comes here anymore.

If you are interested please respond below. I will check everyday for responses.
If there are no responses within 3 days I will take that as no one wants to be apart.

The 0 Level Origin Adventure is "Escape from Crow's Tower Catacombs.
The First Adventure is "Justice for the Lost"

I would like to be able to record the game session to use in the coming soon Kick Starter of the game design. So if anybody has the ability to do that I will take the help.

The game is a Fantasy TTRPG designed for those that have never played a TTRPG before. It is very rules light, & gives the GM all the tools to create adventures, bad guys, or to spruce up an existing adventure. This is close to 6 years of hard work coming to an end, & I would be honored if I can share the celebration of the completion of the Player's Section of the rule book with you.

Thank you for your time. I look forward to you sitting @ my Skype Table.
