There's just one game I've never been able to run on line, and it's one of the easiest and most fun.
Anyone ever hear of Deadlands, the Roll Playing game of the Wierd, Wierd, West?
I first played it in baltimore, and the racantuer... Erm, Marshal (GM being the generic term) was a professional comedian. Not to say he didn't know when to let us get the chiills.
This is a steam punk western with every imaginable form of goodie, from card sharps who've unlocked the arcane secrets encoded in Hoyle's Book of Games, to miracle working nun's and fire and brimstone preachers, to mad scientists unlocking the ultimate power source, ghost rock, to wire fighting kung fu masters and indian braves and shamans drawing extra power from their spirit guides. Of coruse, all your mundane favorites are there, gun slingers, salloon girls, gamblers, prospectors, codgers, Texas Rangers, indian braves, dime novelests...
Hell, you can even play a player charecter Zombie.
I think we'll try and keep that to a minimum on an elliquiy board though.
The one catch, of course, is that along with dice the game calls for a few decks of cards and poker chips. Most random dice rollers don't include those mechanics, but Elliquiy was without one for years, so if yal don't mind your friendly neighbrohood marshal handlin' the cards...
Well, I have a story in mind, I've run it sucessfuly on a tabletop once, and I could take quite a few players, or just enough to win us a board on Elliquiy.
It's a story of a young town in west texas, a Church of Christ collony (north of a little town called Monterey) where the folks are all so pious that they don't even dance.
Or, since that's no fun, a place where all moral depravity is kept at Madam Purty's Saloon.
These folks need to seeriously lighten up, dontcha think? So sign 'er on up folks, and let me know when you do if you'd rather play with sorts of tentacles that ocaisionaly have their way with a purty lady rather than killin' 'er, or if respectable monsters should avoid that sort of thing and leave it at Madam Purdys.
