|Stoatie, subbacultcha & anyone else: I'll post something on the Gathering when things look like getting underway, and PM you. Hopefully soon, but I've got an interview this week and might be starting a new job soon, so could be a little while. However, if you want to know anything more, let me know. I can write you a rundown of the background and you can think about characters and so on.|
Grey Area: no offence meant, Magic and Battletech are games that are also played by lots of RPGers, and I'm not complaining about their presence on the thread or anything. They're just not games that revolve around you taking on a role and playing it. Well, you *could*, but it's not actually required. RPGs can be run like that too, as a freeform skirmish wargame rather than anything involving roleplaying, but it's less likely to happen around here I think.
Other games, I'd say, uh, GURPS, Champions (now HERO), RIFTS, Call Of Cthulhu, d20 Modern, the various White Wolfs, Over The Edge... I'm a little behind on what the kids are playing these days. Once you hit a certain age, you stop reading the magazines and just start playing things with a few friends.
