I've always used random.org for dice rolls (because owning dice is for people willing to spend money on dice)

Looks like we're going to be going pretty close to full Mythos here. RIghto then.

My vote would be to go full on Mythos. I don't know it as well, but that will just make it more fun! Razz

Since my previous post I have read up on the rule set in question and feel rather confident in it, so I'd be down and ready for this sort of thing.

I want to join, I want to join! I'm a fan of tabletop RPGs, after all, and playing one based on the Mythos would be awesome!

P.S.: That's my normal reaction to RPGs based on stuff I love.

I'm almost ready to start setting this game up. Just need to figure out if there's any mechanics which need to be tweaked.

In the meantime, those of you that are interested, possibly try brainstorming your character. I plan to have the actual creation process started in the next few days, so if you already know who they're going to be, it'll speed up the process for yourself. Also, knowing what the characters are like helps me plan out the game a little more.

Ohgodthissoundsawesome. Now I have yet another RPG to add to my list.

Also, the fact that it uses the WoD system is just making this sound better and better.

Going to be starting the game itself around Wednesday; if you want to play, and haven't created a character sheet, WELL THEN STOP SITTING AROUND AND CREATE A CHARACTER SHEET YA LAZY BUMS!

Character sheets just need a few minor modifications before they're all ready, and we can start the game. Going to explain some of the rules which the players may need here (Since we can't really have everyone read and memorize the rulebook, I'm trying to minimize things y'all need to learn to the basics, while I'll handle most of the mechanical stuff in the background)

The difference between an RP and an RPG:

The internet seems to have a bad habit of using these terms interchangeably, so I really should have predicted people getting confused. RP's (Role Plays) and RPG's (Role Playing Games) are actually two different things; there are many similarities, but both are played with very different systems.

The role of the player is likely the largest difference between the two. In an RP, the player's are treated like collaborating storytellers; they control what happens in the setting, the actions of their character, and how the setting reacts to those actions. In an RPG, the players only control their character, while all other factors are handled by the GM.

For example, here we have the same situation, one as an RP and the other as an RPG.

RP: John Smith carefully opened the old door, and looked out. There was a long, grey corridor, stretching down the building. John slowly walked down the hall, feet disturbing dust which had lain untouched for years. Suddenly a shadow passed in front of him; John pulled out his handgun and fired three shots down the hallway, hitting the wall.

RPG:
Player: I open the door and look out it.
GM: You see a long, grey corridor, stretching down the building.
Player: Slowly walk down the hallway.
GM: You cross half the hallway, feet disturbing dust which had lain untouched for years. Suddenly a shadow passes in front of you.
Player: Pull out my handgun and fire three times!
GM: *Does some die rolling* The shadow moves by too quickly; your bullets only hit the wall at the end of the hallway.


While in an RP you write out a scene, and all which occurs in that scene, an RPG you write your character's actions. The job of building the scene, creating non-player characters, and determining the success of actions, is all done by the GM. It's closer to playing a very flexible game than telling a story.

That's a lot easier than what i was doing. XP Though i was pretty proud of my writing. c:

So, then do you roll for us or do we roll? Or does it depend on the situation?

This explains so much.

I am now educated in the way of the RPG. Wayyy easier than RP, that's for sure.

If we were playing face to face, then you would roll for your own character; however, due to the logistics of playing over a forum, I'll handle all the die rolls.

But can I still bring Dr. Pepper and red vines when I play?

You can still sign up. We're not at a point in the game where it becomes impossible to add in new people.

Sorry everyone, but it's starting to look like I won't be able to run this game. I just haven't had the time to recently, and pretty soon I'll be heading back to college (where I definitely won't have the time to run a game). The game never got far, which is a disappointment, as I was kinda looking forward to it.
Again, sorry everyone
