Who here plays TT RPG games
« on: November 08, 2010, 09:00:09 PM »
by TT, I mean table top, the kind that involve paper & usually dice.  If so, which games are you playing or which ones do you like?

When I have a group to play with, I like house-rule D&D.  I've also played Amber, and oWoD (with everything).

My Sunday group has been playing Exodus, which is a mod of d20 Modern that's basically Fallout. It's pretty cool, considering the amount of BS we've gotten up to-like somehow jamming an AK-47.

I'm in a regular pen and paper group. At present we're playing Dresden Files, before that was Scion (Demigod level). I'd like to get them to try Rogue Trader, or even Dark Heresy, but I know its just not their kind of game though. I'm the only 40k nut amongst the group :)

I use a lot of house rules for D&D too.  Tina, a friend of mine, let me read the Amber book years ago but never played it.  I love old wod (not so big on the  new version but I've played it).

1 of the girls in my gaming group really loves Dresden Files & plans to run that at some point, looking forward to trying it.  She's also ran Scion for us, we played at Hero level.  I've never played Dark Heresy before but it seems to be popular.

Dresden Files is a very good system, and one I'd recommend. It helps if you have some degree of familiarity with the novels, especially if you're going to play something other than a pure mortal character.

Scion we have run from Hero up to Demigod. Currently we're at Legend 6, but taking a break from it to play other stuff. We tend to rotate games every so often, so we don't get bored with something. Previously we've also ran GURPS, Star Wars, Legend of the Five Rings and a handfull of other games.

I have a bad taste for gurps but that's do to people running it in a mix everything you can think of together way.  Star Wars I like, especially the Twi' Lecks.  I've never played LOTFR.

L5R is set in a fantasy version of (mostly) Japan (there are influences from other cultures there, but its mostly Japan). I think it's a very good game, but getting players used to the Western mindset (What's in it for us for saving your town?) to think like Samurai (My lord offers me his kimono? What an honor!) can take some doing :)

I've played M&M 2nd, really like the system great for making all sort of different powered heroes.  One of my buddies is talking about starting another game of that soon.

I run L5R every friday night!

My campaign is based around a Yodotai expedition and the eventual adoption of the survivors and their Ronin allies as the Eagle Clan. The Yodotai, L5R Romans serve as the mystery clan so that my player's can't know what they will do, as the clans in the book are pretty well laid out. The Party, having played in a small but important role in the war that lead to the Eagle Clan's founding will have to deal with the results their success wrought. However, though a great set piece for my game, the Yodotai are their to provide a huge distraction from and perhaps a refuge from as well the main threat; a massive Spider Clan infiltration of of Rokugan.

Well, i've done D&D 3rd eddition. Dabbled a bit in WoD, the old version i think.

My current and it would seem longest lasting love though is exalted. My feelings generally if i'm going to play such games i want to be damn memorable. Not have house cats be a legitimate threat when i'm starting out.

Sounds good. I spent about 3 years running the City of Lies campaign (1st ed box set, but we played under 3rd ed rules), and we had a lot of fun with that.

Also, new Infernals book came out today for Exalted!  Rules for Infernal characters to become some not-quite-Primordial superthings!

I've played... uh, lots and lots of systems.  Heh.  I learned on 2nd edition D&D, then tried GURPS and decided that was the system for me; but since I'm always willing to try a new system, I've since played everything from Chill to Toon.  (Not Exalted, though, I'm afraid -- I just don't know anyone local who plays that.)

But I have a regular Saturday game, where we're currently figuring out how to break the GM's homebrew system into little pieces.  AKA playtesting it.  :D
