Do you want to try system gaming?
« on: April 02, 2011, 01:46:29 PM »
Are you troubled by strange expressions like 'THACO', 'Roll and Keep' and 'Exploding dice'?

Do you experience feelings of dread at the sight of strangely shaped dice and thick rulebooks?

Have you wanted to have a try at a system game, but not known how or where to start?

If the answer is yes then don't wait another minute, pick up your keyboard and call the professionals

Our courteous and efficient staff is on call 24 hours 12 hours 6 at odd times of the day to solve all your system gaming experience needs.

Now, roll for initiative.



Ok, here's the deal. I know there are at least a few people out there who would like to try a system game, but for one reason or another haven't. What I am proposing is to run a short adventure (or possibly a series of them, depending on what people want) to let anyone who hasn't tried system gaming, or perhaps just who hasn't tried the particular system in question, get their feet wet.

Depending on peoples wishes I can either guide them through character creation, or put together some pregenerated characters and let people pick.

Then, off to Mumble we go, and for a couple of hours, we can take you off on a weird and wonderful adventure. The worst that can happen is that you'll go insane and be eaten by something horrible from beyond time and space, but that's only if someone wants to run Call of Cthulhu :)

I have a variety of one shot adventures I can run for people. If any other GMs wish to toss their hats into the ring to join me in this, and widen the pool of systems and adventures, feel free to do so.

For the moment, I'll offer to run a short adventure in the following:
Star Wars Saga Edition (Rebellion era)
Legend of the Five Rings (4th edition)
Dresden Files
Scion

If anyone is interested, either as a player, or wanting to GM one shots of their own, feel free to post here.

Looks like a very good idea, Hairy!!

I can offer a short adventure on Call of Cthulhu or Vampire The Masquerade (Old World of Darkness).

I am also available to explain what is and how does work a system roleplay game to those who have not even heard of it and maybe provide an example of an adventure.

I work best through PMs actually though (I don't use Mumble and I am not a big IM person)

I am familiar with Star Wars: Saga edition myself. It may look intimidating at first, but it is actually a -good- system and it doesn't take much to learn it!

That's a very good idea indeed, HH!

Count me as part of the "helpful staff". I am also available to explain how and why to use a system in a roleplay game. I can also help with rules I know, and just run a one-shot game.

Can't get Mumble to work with my computer, and I'm not really pressed to. I can offer Skype, YIM or forum games, though.

System-wise, tell me what you want to play, and I'll offer a system, and probably an easy one, too. Or you can wait for me to compile a list of systems. This will likely take a while, though.

Group activity sounds best to me, too >:)!


After much deliberation and careful considerations, I decided to be the dealer of FREE (or sometimes, just cheap) systems!

See, many systems cost money. I think it would be a bad idea to ask you to pay for a system if you're not sure whether you want any system at all! Besides, you might like the idea, but not the first system I offer.
On the other hand, there are fully professional systems that have free versions, just for this reason. Some systems have free variants with less art, some have published their rules on the net after the books went out of print, and so on. I often like them better than many expensive ones.
So, with this in mind, my list is to follow!

1. FATE - Fantastic Adventures in Tabletop Entertainment
FATE is universal, meaning we can do pretty much any setting with it - from the Wheel of Time, to Star Rangers (well, if you can get me to run Star Rangers). It is narratively-oriented, meaning it approaches the roleplaying less from the angle of "playing a character, the story is what the characters do", and more like writing a story, where the characters are defined by their role in the story. Neither approach guarantees a better story, or better roleplaying, mind you! They are just the way different people like to approach their games. The trick here is to pick a system that fits your approach. Or you could try a new approach.
And of course, you could also find that you like them both in different ways. That's how it worked with me.
HairyHeretic already suggested to run Dresden Files, which is FATE variant. If you want to try FATE, but not with a modern supernatural story like Dresden Files, I could help with this. But really, I recommend HH, he's a great GM!
2. Basic RP/Mini 6
b]Mini 6[/b] and Basic RolePlaying are just as universal, meaning we can again use them for almost anything, but more oriented towards the approach "control your character and your character only, and whatever happens, is the story of this character". Neither approach guarantees a better story, or better roleplaying, mind you! They are just the way different people like to approach their games. The trick here is to pick a system that fits your approach. Or you could try a new approach.
And of course, you could also find that you like them both in different ways. That's how it worked with me.
Why two systems, you might ask? BRP is generally considered grittier, so I'll pick the one I consider better-suited for the game after we discuss a game.
3. Eclipse Phase: Transhumanist Sci-fi
Eclipse Phase has a setting where gender roles are rather complicated by the ability of technology to upload your conscience in a new body of whatever gender you wish. It is best for post-scarcity, transhumanist sci-fi and comes with its own fully-fedged, original setting. Most of the reading is about the setting. It's published under CC license, so you basically buy it if you want to send the authors money (like I did). Or you delete it, if you don't like it. Don't ask for this if you would mind reading a novel, though.
4. Talislanta-fantasy with non-standard races (and non-standard possibilities
Talislanta has a cool fantasy setting. The system itself is easy as a breeze, I have written a summary that's less than 400-words long. Of course, that doesn't include the setting, you get to read it separately. Although it could be used for other settings, there is usually a better-fitting system. What it fits best is the setting of Talislanta.
5. Barbarians of Lemuria: S&S
Barbarians of Lemuria is a simple game geared towards Howardian Sword-and-Sorcery, although it could fit Sword and Planet with some tweaking. If you want a real simple game for some simple fun with a character like the young Conan, or young Red Sonya, this is the game I'd use.

I don't think I have the time to GM a game, but I can at least help out with Star Wars Saga Edition.  I can help people create characters, and I've also got that Dawn of Defiance Campaign that Wizards of the Coast had put up for free online while they still had the rights to create a Star Wars game. ^^;

Never played any of the other systems, though...

I'd love to set up a couple systems to get peoples feet wet. Those I typically run are nWoD, Pathfinder, and exalted. Not sure with the ones I have up that there would be time, I'm also not sure if I would be much help considering I just started play by post as is.

Well, we have a variety of options. The voice server, IM and standard forum play. I thought the voice server would be the handiest, simply for the real time aspect of it. If someone is new to a system and has questions, I'm sure they'd appreciate having them answered then and there :)

I am most interested in learning Legend of the five rings or Vampire  masquerade, because I see them come up often.

But it looks like someone already expressed interest in Star Wars, which is another I've seen around, so I'd like to sign up for that class.

My only system experience is D&D 3.5

I’ve never heard of some of these but I’m interested in learning whatever systems people are willing to teach.  I’ve mostly played D&D (thou not much of it and I’ve had help making characters and leveling up), I also played the marvel role playing game and a zombie game that if it had a name other then zombie I don’t remember it but in both cases I only played once and with per made characters, if anyone has ether of those games and would be willing to run them I would be interested.

Ok, judging by peoples preferences, how about Star Wars for a first try? The system is relatively simple to learn, and most people are familiar with the Rebellion era of the timeline, so you should have the background information as well.

My preference would be to run it live, for a couple of hours, possibly more depending on peoples schedules. I'd like to use Mumble, but can use IM, Skype, or possibly IRC (though I'd need to reinstall that as I haven't used it in years.). I'm in the GMT timezone, for reference.

For characters, I can either help you through the character creation process, or you tell me what sort of character you want to play, and I'll put it together. If we're going to play begining characters, I'm afraid that rules out Jedi though.

Thoughts?

Either way, I'd just like to reiterate that I'm available to help with Saga Edition character creation. ^^; I've got the Core Rules, the Clone Wars Campaign Guide, and the Scavenger's Guide to Droids, so I should be able to help bring to life a variety of different character concepts.

Your Story is the core book, Our World gives you a lot of characters (NPCs) from the Dresden Files novels to work with.

'The Dresden Files is a series of fantasy/mystery novels written by Jim Butcher. He provides a first person narrative of each story from the point of view of the main character, private investigator and wizard Harry Dresden, as he recounts investigations into supernatural disturbances in modern-day Chicago.'

The Dresden Files RPG is set in the same world, so... ^^;

Loosely. Dresden Files is an urban fantasy game. The PCs can play wizards, supernaturals of different types, and mortals who know of the supernatural world that exists. Most people don't know about the supernatural elements.

They're an excellent series of books, if you're looking something new to read.

The system you have in mind looks simple but serviceable. Reminds me of an unholy crossover between BRP, Unknown Armies and Barbarians of Lemuria >:).
I'd be glad to help with whatever I can, although I'd rather use the free Unknown Armies intro ;).

All of the characters are your normal, non-supernatural, mortal humans.

Sorry I'm I n00b when it comes to system rules ... what's nWoD? I know D&D, but because it's obvious. I've never played the thing before. I've never rolled a dice on here before either.

All of the characters are your normal, non-supernatural, mortal humans.

Sorry I'm I n00b when it comes to system rules ... what's nWoD? I know D&D, but because it's obvious. I've never played the thing before. I've never rolled a dice on here before either.

Sure, I'll accept help. Please look at the system that is on the thread I've provided and also the original thread that is linked within the thread I've provided.
NWoD stands for New World of Darkness, I'm sure you've seen a few threads ;). You only need the "core" book of the system to run a game with mortal humans. Depending on how gritty you want your game, it might be a good fit, or not.

I looked at it before stating that it looks like a mix between those three systems I've read. For the record, I like them all, so it's a compliment ;D!
Sent you a PM with my notes on the proposed system already.

Sorry, I should have written it rather than using the abbreviation. As has been said, it's new World of Darkness (to diferentiate it from Old World of Darkness), one of White Wolfs game lines.

Belated reply, but here you go, H2.   ;D

I have a ton of systems, indie and otherwise.  Not quite up to running anything 'normal' right now, but that could change.  I do agree with our resident mentat that anything available for free (or at low cost) is preferable...

(A small sampling of the diversity I offer : The Shadow of Yesterday. Trollbabe, Sorceror, Over the Edge, Castle Falkenstein, Blue Rose, Scion, Random Anime, Big Eyes Small Mouth, Teenagers from Outer Space, Swashbucklers of the Seven Skies, Dead Inside, Truth and Justice, Broken Gears, Unknown Armies, Feng Shui, In Nomine, Mutants and Masterminds 2e, ICONS, Dresden Files RPG, Ironclaw/Jadeclaw, Don't Rest Your Head, Talislanta 4e, WUSHU, Hellcats and Hockeysticks, Panty Explosion, Maid, SWSE, Houses of the Blooded, Blood and Honor, Gangbusters, Dogs in the Vineyard...and while I love JAGS Wonderland for the setting, I don't like the system for beans.)

The Shadow of Yesterday, Trollbabe, Over the Edge, Unknown Armies, Talislanta 4e and Dresden Files RPG all sound great for new people, albeit new people with different tastes. I have used some of them for this already, and it seems they might work even better for people with freeform experience ;D.

Maybe ICONS, Panty Explosion, Maid, Blood and Honor, or Dogs in the Vineyard, if the person or group is interested in what these games have to offer ;). Panty Explosion, Maid, Blood and Honor all seem like things that are well-suited to E.-appropriate themes :P!
I admit I have a less than limited idea on the other ones MP listed.

MadPanda is indeed the resident panda-sage of indie system knowledge >:)!

Most of them, actually...depending on what the people with limited experience want.

Assuming, however, that rules-light and narrativist play work better for players who aren't quite so into the classical TSR approach to play...OTE is a fave, as is Feng Shui.  Blue Rose is a good compromise--crunchy enough but not overwhelming.  To Dresden Files we must add both Starblazers (earlier FATE version space opera) and Spirit of the Century (pulp!).

For romantic comedy, I heartily endorse TFOS...although regrettably nobody ever goes all the way in TFOS.

And of course anything PDQ based: Ninja Burger, Dead Inside, Truth and Justice, Monkey Ninja Pirate Robot, S7S...

Actually Dresden Files isn't too bad, once you get a session or two with it. Character creation can be tricky, but as long as you can get your Aspects sorted, it's all good.

If you read over the threads of the game we have running it, it might help clarify some stuff for you. Or at the least you can see where we were making mistakes early on, and be able to avoid those yourself :)

At the moment I think we're probably about full. That being said, the scenario is probably coming to a close (depending on the PCs actions), and we probably have enough players that we could split into two smaller groups, and run other stories in tandem. If you want to chat about it, PM MadPanda and myself.

It is far from my top10 of best systems to teach a new player, and I've got more experience with other systems that I think are better for this.
Of course, if a Pathfinder GM wants to join, it would fall on him or her to make it digestible to beginners. Personally, I'd rather stick to the guns I've got more experience with.

Yeah, you said it yourself ;). I'd rather teach a system where the character creation isn't a minigame in and of itself, so the player would be able to make a character for it after a one-shot, or run a game himself or herself.

Make no mistake, I think it's cool that you're willing to help a new player learn your game, and I think anyone that wants to learn PathFinder should join it!

And it's not the fastest character creation out there. But I admit WoD characters tend towards the "confused and drunk" part ;).

"Confused drunk sorcerer" would be an awesome concept for a Barbarians of Lemuria game. And you can make the character in less than 10 minutes ;D!

More cycles and inspiration than I presently have, now that it looks like that Feng Shui thing is going to take off.
I should stress that this is the older version of Ironclaw--I do not have and cannot presently afford the second edition, which is a completely different animal (pardon the pun).  I'm also a bit annoyed at the publishers for their unfortunate track record with glaring errors (Jadeclaw Hardcover did not correct a number of obvious problems, and for the price that's a royal pain).

Then just follow the Group Games. There's occasionally someone looking for players, or even players looking for GM, where you could join.
Quite a few GMs would actually pay more attention to your application if you're new to system games, so there's nothing to worry about.

*smiles* Thufir's right. 

If you weren't looking for Vampire I'd be pouncing to show you the ropes.  ^_^;;

Unfortunately I don't really know vampire, but I do see games of it comes up every so often. If there are any other games that interest you, we have a lot of good GMs about the place.
