    I'm an unreliable player, HELP!

    I'm often unreliable, in the sense that something always seems to turn up at the last minute that draws me away from our current regular game. (It's happened before as well.) Given that the reasons for this unreliability are unlikely to go away, and I want to keep roleplaying when I can, how...

    Hiring the PCs?

    How do people get this to work in their games? I mean when the plot begins with official summons by a lord or king, to begin a quest. I tried asking this here, but it suits a discussion much better.

    Secret History of the NWoD?

    An excellent question popped up on the Roleplaying Games Stack Exchange site the other day, that left me stumped: How does nWoD's Secret History chapter relate to the other core books? Does anyone know if the secret history is linked in *any* way in any of the other World of Darkness books? If...

    Hybrid mixes?

    Obviously, some hybrid classes work, and some don't...either mechanically or roleplay wise. The ones I picked out that 'might work' are Paladin/Warden and Invoker/Shaman. What have people tried?

    Setting with no humans (or other fantasy races)

    How do people think would react/use a setting with no standard fantasy races, are there any other settings out there with this theme? The setting I'm planning features two humanoid/human like races, and a fairly alien one. The reason is I want a fresh start, sort of how Elves and Eldarin were...

    Homebrew Forum.

    I remember waaaaay back when I posted here more regularly there was a forums for homebrew ideas. But now it's vanished. It's fair enough that the D&D rules forums could be used for D&D related homebrew, but what about homebrew systems, or other homebrew ideas? Or have I missed something?

    Could someone help me find a post on here ages ago where someone glazed some pots a brilliant blue colour? They ended up with crystalline patterns on them. Or any of your pottery stuff? Thanks :D (I'm asking as I can't search the forums)

    My Facebook Exploded. Edit: False alarm.

    Edit: False Alarm, I'm leaving this up unless someone wants to a) muse about what happened or b) see why this thread is locked (if it is) My facebook has thrown a wobbly. It started off by asking for my age and telling me I didn't have any newsfeed for me. I logged out hoping a refresh like...

    Protecting folders?

    I'm using windows vista and I like to protect folders, after looking on the help it looks like I can't use passwords on folders, which seems unusual. It was suggested that I use permissions but it looks like I can only alter permissions for 'Public' and 'User Name' folders. Is there any way to...

    I heard on the news today (wiki) that the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota had collapsed. I'm just posting this to check up on any of our Minnesotan ENworlders and make sure they and their family are ok, and unhurt. Roll call?
