dont shadow ! abort - we are not running with 4 - we had someone who knows the rules saying that version 4 is for hard core stragetists ! :) - the earlier versions are "lighter" for us mainly free-formers :)

Well, go ahead.  It's fun to play with.  If you end up liking it, it might be something to discuss.

I honestly just don't have the time to properly GM a game.  I'm too detail-oriented to half-ass it, and law school precludes me from devoting that kind of time to the task.

And i've got so many games going, with my comitment o starting an Earthdawn to boot, the last thing i have time for right now is another D&D.  (Which, by the way, I'm prettty bloody burned out on.  I keep winding up running it beause i have good people with good story ideas, but i cringe every time.)

I think my problem is that 3.x and earlier D&D models, more perfectly than almost any other RPG I've ever seen, my concept of what playing an extremely powerful wizard should be like.  And high-end spellcasters are pretty much my favorite thing to play.  What I have never untangled in my head is the direction causation runs - do I like D&D because it fits my natural inclinations, or do I have these inclinations because of my formative experiences playing D&D?  It's a conundrum.

In any case, despite how I feel about trying to teach it to new players over the internet, Earthdawn is a damned fine game and I hope you have great luck running it.  I think it deserved to be more popular than it ever was.

Well spoken, Wiz. 

Kudos to Greenwood for showing us an Elminster who cast spells our charecters could cast and progressed through levels our charecters could progress through while still spinning a damn fine yarn.

Do we have a GM? I wouldn't be adverse to a D&D3.5e game.

We'll just have to hope that the already long and somewhat wandering thread, plus Kate's domme tendencies showing from the player side of the screen ( ;) ) won't scare off any potential DungeonMonkeys.

Has this started already? I can't GM as I have to GM my Flagship game and there's 16 characters in it, but I would love to have a game like this to play in. I'm great with a few classes. You're using 3.5 or Pathfinder?

I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong but I think everyone has pretty much moved to this thread https://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=47568.0.

The game hasn't truly started yet so I am sure there is time for you to join.

Signing up as yet another useless player who can't GM, always fond of group RP, and prefer systems.

I am curious too. I use to play D&D when I was growing up but I never GM'd or DM'd a game before. I loved playing freeform and exploring. if you lads and ladies get a game going I'm game. I'd even join those already going. I hope that is if you'd like a fighter along.

I posted this while I was waiting to be approved.  I am not online much during the week, so I would likely only be able to post on the weekends.  I could also run those games in a Yahoo chat room if there was interest in that sort of thing.

Happy hunting!

You know, one possibility I'll throw out into this thread is OSRIC:

http://knights-n-knaves.com/osric/downloads/OSRIC.pdf

The advantages of OSRIC are that:

1) It's a free download, so anyone can acquire the source materials
2) The ruleset is basically Advanced Dungeons and Dragons (Second Edition) with the serial numbers filed off.  A few carefully selected concepts from Third are added, but really, if you know AD&D 2.0, you already know about 90% of OSRIC.
3) There's enough structure to run the game, but enough ambiguity to allow for house rules and other mods.  And if you have any supplements to Second Edition lurking around, they can be used with only slight modification.
4) I might, possibly, be talked into running an OSRIC game...

AD&D seems kind of hard to learn compared to 3.5
