Is this still going or did it kind of die off?

It's still going, I have just been busy in the past couple of days. College work has to come first.  :D

Plus a few things still gotta be settled first before we start.

As long as it's not overly complicated I should be able to learn. Still, I've played system games in the past where the system completely and totally gets in the way of everything that the player wants to do, forcing them on rails where a single dice roll can completely screw over both a character's future, the story I had planned for them, and their personality on a fundamental level.

As long as that sorta stuff can't happen, I'll be down. And if you want, I can give you the story that made me so bitter towards system games. XD

Well, the system is more to keep it balanced between players, and if you have a bad GM, railroading tends to happen. Though death can still happen to characters and sometimes a die roll is the only thing between that, though for this system, by the time that actually comes into play(which is still rare in itself), you guys will probably have the money or access to the spells to bring your friends back from the dead(Plus, Video Game campaign, so many ways to bring yourself back)... But a system game is probably not be for you if you feel that way.

Well, it's not that I'm worried about having my characters die (though that would suck big time), it's just that.. well... this one time:

I was playing as a character who's key personality trait in combat was that he never backed down until either the fight was won, or he was laying on the ground dead. His main love interest, a girl that he had spent a lot of time with and developed very deep and loving feelings for, was being *cough* 'assaulted' by a rather large and intimidating monster. The GM forced me to roll for 'courage' in order to see if the character would rush in and defend his love interest, he then set the bar to an outrageously high level because he was desperate for that NC scene to go down without me interfering.

I rolled poorly, and the GM told me that my character would turn tail and run away. I must have spent a few days arguing with him about that, about how no matter what I rolled, it just didn't make sense for my character to do that. In terms of personality, he would die before retreating, but the GM would have none of it, so I QQed and never touched system games again.

That GM has no right to be a GM again if that's how he plays.  No wonder you hate systems, but I doubt that'll be a problem with MHC buddy.  Call it a hunch on my end, and normally my hunches are right lol.

Your GM seemed to be one who requires rolls for EVERYTHING which is unnecessary, you should have been able to run in and pound the monster to paste. Also, that roll should never have been called for since there was no way in hell the monster was paying attention to you if he was hurting her, so fear abilities don't come into play. You should have been able to fight that giant monster. Also, yeah......That's not good when the GM forces a scene just to see....that when no one else wants it.

That won't happen here. If you want me to teach you how to play Pathfinder, I will help you. If you still don't wanna play, that's okay. ^_^

Thanks for understanding. I think I'll try my luck with system games again, though I'm still uneasy about the whole thing. Sure, I guess I can play along this time and see how it feels.

Alright, what was the last system you played? It could help to know what the last system was...it could be similar to pathfinder.

It was BESM, an anime based system.

It stands for Big Eyes Small Mouth, not what it looks like at first glance.

I know BESM, that thing was overtly complicated and used a d6 to do checks. You had to roll low in order to succeed I think.

Pathfinder is a d20 system that is extremely similar to DnD. While you can not do really complicated stunts at level one, it's a lot easier to learn then BESM.

Hmm... I've been wanting to try out the Summoner class and I've been a fan of Yuna from FF-X so I think that is who I will play for this game.

Stat roll: 4d6.takeHighest(3)=13, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=10, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=16, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=17, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=17, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=11

It is very close to a FFX summoner...it's kinda uncanny.
