It’s not that I’m a bad person. Or a good person. It’s that I’m not good enough. I want to be better. And I realize that being a better person includes not being influenced by the way circumstances treat you but by God life is seriously cramping my style right now. And I feel like shit.
“No time for RPGs” level: made maybe seven characters for the “Create A Character January” thread. (Admittedly White Wolf hamstrung me. I used to be quick at these but I had a difficult time. I may have grown at least partially dependent on randomness. All those choices!)
The purported wisdom of experience and maturity fails to provide simple answers for some old questions. For twenty-eight I have been asked, “what is Rifts?” and I dread the question now every but as much as I dreaded it in the past. Maybe even more so.
Sorry for not being very active on actual gaming threads. The longer you go without gaming, the more it feels like something you won’t be doing anymore... then again, maybe this is the kick in the pants I need.
Some ideas for Call of Cthulhu:
- Roll 3d6 (or 4d6-drop-lowest for a pulpier feel) and assign to taste. Screw 2d6+6 and 3d6+3.
- Calculate skill base levels from attributes, like RQ6/Mythras. Except Credit Rating. Starts at 0% (or maybe do away with it altogether -- maybe with a Social Standing attribute?)
I am being told by an old timer in our group (a notorious railroader GM, no less) that I am a bad person for having people roll for their starting career in WFRP. And this is not a random internet person, it’s a friend who I’ve been gaming with on and off for 20+ years. Seriously, this fucking hobby.
