About Oryzarius
Introduction:
Keen for GURPS, Savage Worlds, FATE; seeking mix of RP, tactics, investigation.
About Me:
I'm a U.S. Navy brat who lived on both coasts before coming to Houston as an undergrad (Rice) and then stayed put. My career has mainly been in education, with some side forays into administration and print communications. I'm also an amateur theatrical actor and director, with credits in a variety of local theaters.

Generally I favor "wide-open" systems that allow creativity for both the players and the GM: GURPS, Savage Worlds, FATE, etc. Though I enjoy GURPS' capacity for detail, I prefer to play it in a "roll and shout" vein: if you would have to bring the game to a screeching halt to look something up, instead make up something reasonable and just keep moving.

That said, I can also enjoy more focused (and popular) systems like D&D (which I’ve played through all five editions) or Traveller (where I’m also a completist), Call of Cthulhu (and its BRP cousins), or Shadowrun. Quirky niches are fun, too, from Earthdawn to Ars Magica to Space:1889.

I also play shorter improvisational games (Fiasco, etc.) and modern board and card games (Carcassonne, Shadows Over Camelot, etc.).

My Game Details

Details of games currently playing and games being sought.

Town:
Houston
State:
Texas
Country:
USA
Game Details:
I already GM a homebrew 5th-edition D&D game for my wife's (adult) cousins, so I'm really interested in playing. That said, I'll mention some games that would interest me as either a player or a GM.

D&D 5th EDITION: any of the adventure paths sound exciting, or a homebrew world.

FATE: *Dresden Files* has been my main experience, but I'd be fine with exploring how the rules system works in other genres, too.

GURPS: Teen psionic supers in small-town Texas; musketeers in zombie-infested Paris; Terran traders muddling through *Traveller*'s "Interstellar Wars"; low-level shadowrunners as protectors of their neighborhood; Cthulhoid adventurers with more pulp than despair; intrepid adventurers in *Space: 1889*; semi-gonzo *Gamma World*-style mutant adventures.

SAVAGE WORLDS: Published settings like *Hellfrost*, *Sundered Skies*, or *Space: 1889*, or a fun homebrew.

  • 06:12 PM - Toriel quoted Oryzarius in post Take A Peek At The Sunless Citadel From Tales of the Yawning Portal
    From the article: "The Sunless Citadel was a 32-page adventure which was buried underground, corrupted by a magic tree." Wow. Was the product such a bad design that they had to dispose of it so extremely? :-) I also think it was the toxicity of the adventure that corrupted the magic tree. Not the other way around. ;)
