I'm a 53-year-old househusband/actor who has finally got time to pursue some tabletop gaming. I'm hosting/co-hosting 2 OSR D&D podcasts and it rekindled my interest in it. I'd love to find a group doing Basic D&D (Metzer/Rules Cyclopedia) 1st Edition or 2nd Edition. I've been gaming since the late 80's (on both sides of the screen and I'm free most evenings. I'd play 3/3.5 if that's the game but I won't touch 4E. I'm learning to embrace my inner grognard. ;D I also have experience playing Champions, Mutants and Masterminds and CoC, but I'd like to keep my focus on old school D&D if I could.
Anyway, thnks for reading and I hope I haven't put you off. Hope to hear from youfolks. Thanks for having me here.
Nice to hear from you. You coming in from NearbyGamers, or just a random drive-by?
The group's pretty full right now, but things can change—the possibility exists that if there's enough interest, we could end up splitting up into separate groups or something. Might as well hang around and see what happens.
Also, we haven't done D&D 2e since 3e came out. That said, I know McNurlen joined up with a Saturday group in the area playing 2e—don't know what their status is, but he might be able to point you that way.
If you're interested in Virtual Table-Top gaming, there has been some talk of our expatriate members putting something together in that regard—don't hold your breath on that one, though. I have been playing GURPS Traveller online using Fantasy Grounds for about six months now, with another group. Unless you're a technophobe, I recommend giving it a shot.
Notice: If you find yourself feeling offended by something I've written, it is extremely unlikely that I actually intended any such offense—please allow me the benefit of doubt before you respond. If you still feel the need respond to a perceived insult, please let me know, in specific, how I could have rewritten my post in an unoffensive manner.
Thanks for the reply. Yeah I forgot to mention I found you folks from NearbyGamers. It's a great site.
Also, I forgot to mention I saw your group was full, but I thought I'd give you a shout-out anyway. Never know.
Yeah, I'd be interested in the 2E game. That'd be great, as I currently host a 2E podcast (thacoshammer.info/) and I feel slightly foolish that I haven't played it in quite a while.
As for the virtual tabletop, thanks but I'm looking for some actual FTF gaming as I spend WAY too much time at this PC and I need to see some real people (I hear they actually exist outside the internet - interesting). BUT, that may change in the future. I'll let you know.
