Do you like role playing? (in Off-topic)


AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] November 9 2009 5:07 PM EST

No really, do you? I was wondering how many people here do the role playing thing in their own free time, or if the old pen & paper past-time has been supplanted by video games.

I personally play a couple in my own time (mainly just CyberGen), and was wondering if anyone still does this now a days. I realize that many of you might have dabbled in them when you were kids, but have you left it behind now?

I like RPGing! It's fun what you have time on your hands! :D

I definitely do DnD. Though not as much during the actual school year.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] November 9 2009 5:21 PM EST

Some day I will convince you to play too 3/4ths.

I still rock the D&D, I actually played last Saturday...

Now I am looking forward to playing some Pathfinder, it is from the people who used to publish the magazines called Dragon (for players) and Dungeon (for GMs) think of it as 3.75 =)

I loved DnD with some of my old friends, but at college I don't have time for hardly anything... Stupid learning always gets in the way. I find it hard for anything to replace such the "do what you want" idea of DnD. Even with games becoming more advanced, they have a long way to go.

Vampire The Dark Ages and Vampire The Masquerade!
why be the good guy?

White Wolf Games FTW! I used to RP like crazy both as a Player and a DM/ST. All of the World of Darkness Version 1.0 that is......

Werewolf the Apocalypse,
Vampire the Masquerade,
Vampire Dark Ages,
Kindred of the East,
Mage the Ascension,
Mummy the Resurrection,
Changeling the Dreaming,
Hunter the Reckoning,
Demon the Fallen,
Wraith the Oblivion, &
Orpheus

Loved it but the Late night stuff had to go out the door when the children came into the picture. :-/

Nerd Alert!

{Wookie}-Jir.Vr- November 9 2009 7:09 PM EST

lol, j/king guys. The only RPGs I ever got into were video game RPGS, which I enjoyed immensely. A lot of my friends play DnD and other pen and paper RPGs, but I find myself too busy to take part. Some of my best friends play 3-4 times a week O.O.

I am REALLY stoked for that new game coming out though, Dragon Age: origins, or whatever. Might have to borrow a 360 to play that. Also, Darkstalkers looks amazing.

Anyways.

I used to play Vampire back in the day, but I haven't had an RP group in years. I'd love to get back into it someday.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] November 9 2009 7:25 PM EST

I dabble in p&p RPG's. I've been playing Basic Fantasy with some friends lately. (Think AD&D.)
I'd love to see a fully-fledged DnD 3.5 or 4.0 campaign utilizing Google Wave.

Mesoshort November 9 2009 7:27 PM EST

Hm, do I like role playing... Hm... I role play in forums. Not sure how familiar anyone here is with IMVU.... That's where I do most of mine at. :) Also participate in Fexy's CGen games as well. Tried Furcadia, but not for me. Love the console RPG's and Warcraft (not WoW) games. :) I used to participate in LARPing (We called it MELEE because there was no magic), but the group died out. I miss my 4 foot sword :P

DoS [Demon Forging] November 9 2009 7:32 PM EST

^I saw some IMVU giftcard things at Walmmart. lol.

Kokokitty November 9 2009 8:27 PM EST

I love playing D&D! But most the guys I want to play with always say that girls think its to boring....Maybe you guys are afraid to get yall's butt whipped? haha! J/P

"White Wolf Games FTW!"
I agree Zenai :D

I play the occasional DnD and super hero games with family and friends. It is a really fun thing to participate in.

DERPA [Red Permanent Assurance] November 9 2009 9:23 PM EST

We've had 6(+?)women in Cgen. Girls do get bored easily. ;)
Feel free to prove me wrong every thursday and sunday, girls!

Kokokitty November 9 2009 10:57 PM EST

B.I.O. Bring it on XD tehehehe

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] November 10 2009 1:03 AM EST

Most of the time the girls have more fun playing then the guys as we aren't shooting people up ALL the time.

"White Wolf Games FTW!"

I should note the White Wolf forums were where was first introduced to CB.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] November 10 2009 3:17 AM EST

Have done since I was a kid, and still do today. ;)

Started with DnD (Red Box up to 2nd Ed), then moved on to;
Marvel/DC
Warhammer
Cyberpunk
SLA Industries
Kult
Stormbringer/Elric
Vampire (Werewolf sucked, renown was >_<. Mage was too unbalanced. Wraith and Changeling weren't great to play either)
Exalted
Now playing the New Worlds of Darkness.

I'm sure I'm missing a few. We've tried out just about every RPG around on time or another (but stear clear of the whole D20 phase).

We started as usual, Monty Haul dungeon romps. Cyberpunk really changed how we RPed, we matured into it and started playing more character/story driven games, then just "Look how strong my character is! Look at me gear and how much I can kill!!!".

Now days, it's all about the character, and your Role Playing. Sure, sometimes we all roll up an Uber 'warrior' type, but it's all done, and played *in character*. Which is a world apart from where we started in DnD.

SLA had a lovely setting and background. But (like many other games we've payed) the system had some major flaws. ;)

AdminNightStrike November 10 2009 7:36 AM EST

I haven't had the time to play in a long time. I don't think I ever even touched 3.5... I stopped shortly before it came out.

Guardian November 10 2009 8:01 AM EST

i like to rolplay in a online game called POPMUNDO. its a game where u make a band and try to build your fame around the world.

Kokokitty November 14 2009 8:10 PM EST

Hi! How is everyone! ^_^

Daz November 14 2009 10:30 PM EST

Not bad. How are you?

Back on topic, I'm currently playing in two HERO System campaigns, as well as GMing one. I'm also playing in a L5R game and a 4th edition game.

It looks like there is an Earthdawn game coming up on the horizon, too. Which is good, because I love Earthdawn.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] November 15 2009 5:27 AM EST

Ah! Earthdawn!

Spent a long time paying that, how could I forget!

From the first FASA version, to both the living room games and redbrick 'second editions'. ;)

A word of advice. Journeyman can seriously mess up the power level of the game. ;)
