In order to save "The New Design" from the ravages of spamming, I have set up a handy dandy thread for you to discuss table-top/book-run rpgs.

Now go discuss my cabbages!

I wanted to answer a question that was asked in the other thread - yes, I've LARPed. It is lots of fun. Put your dignity aside and enjoy yourself!

I fail to see how LARPing is any different from playing games with toy swords when you were a kid. Which is not a bad thing; indeed, it was a lot of fun, and only "dignity" prevents us from doing it as adults. So why not? Public dignity is over-rated.

I prefer to let my imagination do all the work, but to each his (or her) own.

I'm looked over "Requiem," and so far I don't like it as much as "Masquerade." Maybe after I've run into the so-called limitations they got rid of I'll like it better, but...

I never had a copy of the original, so I wouldn't know. I know they got rid of a few of the clans, and Requiem has covenants (the Circle and the Sanctum) that give special powers besides the clan ones. It also introduces VII, which are very cool antagonists, if I do say. It also focuses less on really, really powerful ancient vampires (I don't think Cain is mentioned once in Requiem), and the whole 'The End Is Coming!" thing is gone.

Yeah, but the history was part of the appeal for me-it made the charatcers easier to grasp. Now it's all like, "Well, I remember *something*-the trouble is, it involves weasels, bananas, and the eternal procrastination of our redemption...and a marmoset is in there somewhere, but I can't remember where."

Werewolf: the Apocalypse? *scurries off to Wikipedia* Oooo...

I started playing on Advanced Dugeons and Dragons. That was a lot of fun.

Played Vampire: The Masquerade. That was a lot of fun.

Werewolf: The Apocolypse was great. My group formed a band ingame called Stephen Werewolf.

Was removed from a game store for trying to light the Vampire: Requiem stock on fire.

Play AD&D 3.0/3.5 now.

I cannot stand to play the D20 Star Wars game because I personally find the universe to constricting.

I have also played Warhammer Fantasy, Warhammer 40,000, and about a billion other table top and board games.

Eldar DO rule. Close followed by... nothing. Nope. Nothing else even comes close.

I'm actually limited in the games I've played-mostly because our usual DM/Storyteller/whatever lives about 200 miles away and comes up most irregularly. But I have played Ars Magica, Morrow Project, and now Masquerade. Morrow Project was fun-somehow we got my dad to play, and surprisingly he's really really good at it. But the hours weren't conducive for him-he thought staying up to 4am was a little ridiculous. Strange man.

I've heard of it, but never played it.

Question of the day: Warhammer? Very Happy?
