Hey, everyone! A friend suggested I poke my snout in here and say hello. Ever since G+ got shut down, I haven't done much social media-ing, but this looks like a very fun place, so here I am! Started playing D&D in the 80s, still love it. Gaming in general, really. I enjoy RPGs, LARPing, miniature wargaming, board games, staring out the window and muttering imprecations as the bipedal cattle shuffle by, video games, all kinds of fun stuff.
I'm. You have bipedal cattle? That's awesome if I'm understanding that correctly!

I swear to God I read “bipedal castle” which I could make no sense of and assumed was a pop culture reference that went over my head. But which would be a pretty awesome adventure module (hint, hint)

Baba yagas dancing hut or Earthshaker modules kind of cover this genre.

Okay, I like it. Weird, but awesome. There'd also be a tower, with just one leg, perhaps on a rollerskate...

Welcome @RafaelChandler I just recently picked up Viewscream 2e. I'll start a thread on it once I've read it over.

Hello all. I'm The Convenient Skill (TCS), a lover of all sorts of games and settings - in particular swashbuckling games and some sci-fi.

I've played from a young-ish age from the mid to late eighties, and have dabbled in a few systems.

I came across the pub after hunting down info on Frontier Space, and found an (apparently) nice community.

Plus there seem to be swashbucklers hereabouts!

Welcome to the Pub, TCS! We've got a few lovers of the "cape and sword" style around... :smile:
Myself included, yes.

What are your favourite fencing rules:wink:?

Due to not being able to stick to one game, I probably don't have a favourite. I'm an eternal optimist so always see the best in each system which makes it really difficult!

I have a dream of trying to create the same character in each game I own and running them through a skill test or two and then a duel and posting it all in my blog. Both so I can see the best bits and show them to other people. I don't know what the probability of that occurring actually is!

I have considered doing the same with a single fighting different systems. Let's just say that the idea is on the back burner, though!

Greetings! :smile: I heard about this for the first time a few days ago on rpg.net.

It looks like some have changed their Profile Name, but I don't see how to do that.
Welcome aboard! Are you the famous Majestic from the V&V forum I used to frequent way back when?

I am that same Majestic. I still play V&V, and my campaign is nearly 30 years old!

Nowadays both me and my son play and run that game (we have multiple groups), and I also play D&D (5e) and the occasional other game. I'd like to fire up a number of my campaigns that have been on hiatus (Delta Green, West End Games d6 Star Wars, and Adventures in Middle-earth). Recently I ran the Alien RPG twice, too.

Even though I have had the books for a while, I am just getting into Delta Green. I really like it!

Welcome Doug,

What name are you referring to?

I always enjoyed your campaign updates on that forum...if I recall right, didn't you use "issue numbers" for them? The capsule summaries were kind of like reading those old indices like

Well, for instance, instead of your name saying "John Smith", it says "Endless Flight".

It's not a huge deal, but generally speaking on the web I use a name like Majestic instead of my actual name.

I sure did! Good memory!

All told, we're now up to seven titles totaling 556 issues! We've now got dozens of players in numerous groups.

You could always start a thread on this site (hint, hint).

Can't work out if there's a way to do it ourselves but @Endless Flight will definitely be able to sort that for you.

I will switch it.

Howdy.
Been a member of a different forum for a long damn time. Took a break, went back to see what I missed and was very dissapointed in how that forum went completely off the rails and has nothing to do with games at all anymore.
Anyway, I noticed that many of the people who I thought were cool seem to have migrated here, so here I am. I guess I created a profile back in 2017, but never came back until a few weeks ago.
I'll get a profile pic and signature eventually. Thanks for making this place.

Welcome to the Pub, Everloss. It's weird to say that as you actually joined before I did.
