Evil! Evil!!!

X-posted from sethrpg:

My nefarious plans are coming together.

What's funny is that my previous post in that journal (locked to non-friends there) was exactly one year ago today. Cunning plans for RPG's are hard to come by when you're as busy as me.

sethrpg is where I post stuff about a GURPS Infinite Worlds campaign I was running for a while. Public posts are for all, mostly the players. I don't friend the players (e.g. I don't want geekcave to read the locked posts) because I use the locked posts to query interested parties for their opinions on the sessions I'm planning. What's funny about GURPS is that since I last ran the game, GURPS has been updated (to 4th Edition) and Infinite Worlds is now the default campagin setting. So, there's a lot more material now for me to work with than there was a year ago.

osewalrus, if you want me to run this campaign, don't read the backlog of posts at sethrpg. Not that you have time or anything.

Good to see you're paying attention
What you're paying attention to is another issue entirely. I can see that what you're really interested in is MST3K, which does not exactly lend itself to a useful roleplaying setting.

Re: Good to see you're paying attention
Oh, I don't know. I think coming up with experiment exchanges could help immensely with getting the creative juices flowing. And give you many silly and/or malevolent ideas for a near-future campaign....

'Couse, the last time I played GURPS, it was kinda deep hurting.... ;-)

Re: Good to see you're paying attention
It hurt the first time for me. It's settled down to a slow ache since then.

There are many options
Different RPGs have different rules. Some are easier and harder, and it you can enjoy them differently depending on who you're playing with, etc. It's like one car vs another...you can like one car, but it can be too expensive, too hard to drive, etc. No matter how nice it can be, you want something you're comfortable with.

It's good for an occasional hobby, but it's best if your friends are into it. It's less enjoyable if you're meeting total strangers. I'm with my current group because I was introduced by a friend...and I've introduced other friends to it as well.

Hi Seth,
Hope all is well. I don't check LJ often and my Black Op fantasy journal went stagnant immediately. I just wanted to say 'Hello' and wish you and yours well. This has nothing to do with me volunteering my services to pinch-hit in your GURPS game should you want to shake up your group sometime or anything like that. Complete coincidence really. Have a great day. Fnord.

Re: There are many options
Marc-

All is reasonably well. Where are you living these days? You might not be interested in joining a group that meets in Vienna, VA. The drive has gotten worse as traffic sucks harder in the DC area. If you're coming from Baltimore, you're talking a 2 hour drive (one way, there) for 3 hours of gaming. Not that I'd turn down your presence, mind you...just that you be aware of what you're getting into by making the offer.
