Hey guys,

 

So.. My gaming group no longer wishes to commit time to pnp gaming...

 

Being unable to find  any other people who are interested in Pen and Paper tabletop gaming I decided to take it online!
 

So as a result i'm looking for people interested in having a weekly session (negotiable) at sometime:

             Monday - Friday -> after 22:00 CET
             Saturday & Sunday -> anytime

The books I own are the following:

  • Numenera
  • Vampire the Masquerade 2e
  • Changeling: The lost
  • World of Darkness
  • Mage: The Ascension
  • Monsters and Other Childish Things

So i'd be willing to DM any of those. Or if there's a group of you out there playing, im interested in most systems.

 

Thank you for your attention, let me know if there's anyone interested.

Hi. As someone why loves crpgs, but hasn't tried pnp, I'd be willing to try.

 

How long would a normal session last? Do I need to have any books as well?

Ooh, ooh, I've always wanted to try nChangeling. Also, there is a not-insignificant number of people on these forums (me included) interested in playing Numenera.

A session could last anywhere between 2-4 hours.
And no, you won't be needing the books since I already own them, there's character generators online and i can walk you through character creation.

 

If we're going to play Numenera, you're in luck since I actually have some experience running the thing, and some complimentary books.
 

Changeling, i've only ever read it, but am very interested in running a game!

 

Unfortunately i'm not very familiar with the software used for playing PnP games online, Is there anything that can run the Storyteller system or Numenera?
or maybe something where I can costumize the rules?

 

I'll have a look around.

 

As for players, do you guys happen to know if there's anyone else that's interested?

Our group uses Skype text chat with a dice roller plugin. It works pretty well.

 

When I was recruiting (here), multiple people have expressed interest; I believe they'd still be up for a game.

Well, looks like we have a party of three so far, that's great!

In terms of software, I've looked into Roll20, and it has everything I'd need for running it. It also has Numenera-Specific character sheets which would be nice for both you(the players), and help me keep track of things. I think i'll be using that, but you guys will need to create an account (assuming you don't have one already)

 

So, when would you guys be available for a session?

Since the first Session will mainly involve character generation i'd like you guys to start thinking about what you want to play.

It is important to note that in Numenera you do not need a balanced party, you can easily play a party of Glaives(Warriors), Nanos(Magicians) or Jacks(rouges).

 

To help you think of what kind of a character you want to play, use this tool. Mind you this only contains the core character options, and I have a book that greatly expands on that, we can discuss that in the character generation session.

The character creation is essentially describing your character by who he or she is, and what they do: I'm a <Adjective> <Noun> who <Does X>
Descriptor, Class and Focus respectively.
 

To help you with the setting a bit: Numenera is about a world where 8 civilizations have risen, fallen, disappeared or ascended leaving everything behind. The origins of many races and creatures are unknown. It's about a medieval society in a very bizarre world populated by, simply put, alien monstrosities, artifacts and mysterious devices and bioes that a scattered around  the globe. Welcome to the Ninth World!

Well, consistently I can only play on weekends. Work has a bi-weekly schedule, so I'm free only every two weeks.

As for my character, I need to read the books again. :lol:

Keep in mind that there is a extended character options book (Which I own), and the little fact that you don't have to limit yourselves to what's in the book. If you have an idea for a focus or a descriptor, we can discuss it and make it work.

I'm a bit booked with local games at the moment, inc one Werewolf and one Vampire, so I might pass on this one. However if you start another one up in future time permitting I'd be up for it.

Outside of exam periods, I'm free pretty much whenever. As for character concept, I'm thinking of playing a Mlox Jack Who Rides The Lightning.

Ah Mloxians are pretty awesome, that sounds good to me. Can't wait to hear from the others.

 

The idea is to have an on-going campaign where characters go from adventure to adventure, no doubt the party will change along the way, so whenever you'd like to we can always write another player in. This is mainly to be sustained by not only the personality and back stories that the characters have, but also the future adventures that may shape them in different ways.

 

Unfortunately Fanstasy Grounds isn't free, so I don't think we'll be using that. I think i'll stick with Roll20.

I would be down for Numenera.  22:00 CET translates to 16:00 where I live, which wouldn't work for me on a weekday, I get home around 17:30, thus 23:30 CET at the earliest on a weekday for me.  Weekend I'm generally good to go whenever.  If my available times don't work, I understand.  I'll think about a character concept when I get home and have my book to flip through .  Sorry I missed this thread until now.  :blush:

Alright then, let's try and aim for this Saturday(18th) at 22:00 CET and we'll do character creation, so that I can walk you through the character options, address any concerns and explain the rules and the setting a bit better.

Is that okay with everybody?

22:00 is a bit late, dontchathink? In my experience, even short sessions take 3-4 hours, and Numenera's system requires players to assign different connections to each other, which can take quite a lot of time.
