    • 4 players plus GM.
    • Other players DM, but only partial crossovers between my group and those games.
    • Male/Female: 3/2
    • We have an awesome game shop nearby. Plus, a couple of us work at the second-largest games distributor in the world.
    • 100% homebrew.
    • Playing this campaign for over a year (gaming for 29 years); this year I will celebrate the 13th anniversary of my 29th birthday.
    • I received the blue box as a Christmas present from my Aunt Susan and quickly worked out the game with a couple neighborhood kids.

    Hell yes

    Nope.

    4.) What's the Male/Female composition of the group?
    3 dudes and one lady

    5.) Got a good gamestore near you and what is it?
    Yeah, a couple--the Bookery Fantasy is one, and there's another one that's bigger and a little further away, but we've only gone there a couple times. There's also another small comics/game shop nearby as well, but they have a lot less stuff, but the dudes who work there seem pretty cool.

    Homebrew. I can't run modules for some reason. I always get bored.

    I am currently 21. I started in 2000, so I guess almost ten years.

    8.) Who taught you to play?
    I taught myself, I guess.

    Everyone, tell us about your games, please.

    1.) How many players in your group? 5. I have room for 6 and don't like to run the main game for fewer than 4.

    2.) Do you DM? Mostly, yes.

    3.) Do other people in the group DM, and how many? For the first time, though, I now have two players who are willing to step up and run other games.

    4.) What's the Male/Female composition of the group? 5 males and 1 female (my wife) currently.

    5.) Got a good gamestore near you and what is it? The Game Preserve. It's OK. My needs don't really mesh up with that store these days. There's also the Arsenal which is an awesome place to game if you don't have room to host. They serve food. It's really more of a gamer cafe with gaming tables that also sells some RPG stuff.

    6.) Mainly modules or homebrew stuff? Mostly modules these days. Between writing and my day job, I don't have a lot of time to create decent adventures from scratch.

    7.) How long have you been playing and how old are you? I've been playing since 1982. I'm 39, so 31 years.

    8.) Who taught you to play?
    A school mate my parents were babysitting at the time brought over this game in a magenta box with funny dice. "You have to try this," he said....





    Don't forget to chime in on the entire RPG Survey Round-Up![/QUOTE]

    1. 10 people have characters written up for the game, but we usually have 4-6 players show. I never say "no" to a potential player.

    2. & 3. I am the "main" GM, but another player got excited, ran a side adventure, and now we are co-GMing our way through the Tyranny of Dragons books: I run three "epsiodes", he runs three, etc.

    4. One female player, but she's always there, so about 5:1. I would LOVE to get more female players.

    5. Yes. Common Room Games! used to have weekly GM Roundtable meetings there, I've played a few one-shots there, they have a games auction twice a year, and I buy stuff there now and then.

    6. I used to use 100% homebrewed adventures, but now I use published stuff and then mess with it.

    7. Since 19...77? '78?

    Sure, I'll do this.

    1.) How many players in your group?
    7 players, plus me (DM)

    2.) Do you DM?
    Yes

    3.) Do other people in the group DM, and how many?
    Nope, nobody else DMs currently, though one has DMed in the past.

    4.) What's the Male/Female composition of the group?
    Four male, three female. At least three of whom would also identify as queer.

    5.) Got a good gamestore near you and what is it?
    A really awesome one just opened up, which is great, because the other FLGS in our area was no so much on the F, if you catch my meaning

    6.) Mainly modules or homebrew stuff?
    I'm running Tyranny of Dragons (which you can learn more here) but set in Eberron, so there's been a fair amount of tweaking.

    7.) How long have you been playing and how old are you?
    I am in my early 30's, and I've been playing D&D in some form or fashion since I was about 7, with long stretches of hiatuses unless you count CRPGs. Our current campaign just started two months ago, before that I hadn't played in about three-and-a-half years (since the birth of my daughter).

    8.) Who taught you to play?
    My older brother.
