  • 04:22 AM - Olaf the Stout quoted John Desmarais in post How Many RPG Books Do You Own?
    I’ve never counted, but I am in the process of moving right now so I’ve boxed up the majority of them. Fifteen banker boxes currently contain the bulk of them. (The exception being that I have not yet boxed up most of the Hero System and Call of Cthulhu books as those are the two games I’m actively running right now, and there’s a small stack of recent purchases that didn’t get boxed up). I do not look forward to ever having to move my collection. I can only imagine how many separate boxes I'd have to spread the books across.

  • 05:01 AM - Umbran quoted John Desmarais in post Would you invite this player?
    The phrase “that's what my character would do" is such the red flag for me as, almost without fail, it has nothing to do with roleplay and everything to do with just being an excuse to be a jerk in the game. Good roleplaying with a group is *learned*. It is unlikely to come fully formed form a player's head. For those of us who get to it, it is either by having really good examples to learn from, or the school of hard knocks where things go wrong and we feel one another are jerks from time to time, until we figure out what works and what doesn't. The real question is - has this person had good examples to learn from, or the experience to know better? If not, holding that against them is like holding against a toddler that they haven't gotten the knack of table manners yet. There is a player I know who got her start playing via solo games run by her boyfriend. When said boyfriend integrated her into another game, it went... poorly. All games she had ever experienced were all about her. ...

  • 03:25 AM - Nebulous quoted John Desmarais in post [Gamers Wanted!] DM looking for new 5e/Numenera group Winston Salem NC
    Numenara sounds interesting (being a game I’ve never played). When and where would you be planning? Btw, you might also find some players here: https://www.meetup.com/Winston-Salem-Roleplaying-Games-RPGs-Meetup/ Initially probably meet people at House of Cards on Country Club, and eventually migrate to my place once I can establish a core group. And yes, I did meet with that meetup group once, it went well, i need to go again but I haven't had time recently. I'm a DM and not really a player, so I'm trying to recruit people to fit the mold. :)
