RPG Discussion / Re: Any pen&paper roleplayers here?

I'm going to look into all the applications of Roll20 as iv never used it myself. I will post a topic here when I'm ready for player applications.
I will note that my games tend to deal heavy in realism. I.e. Unless you were a soldier, hunter or, professional shooter you cannot really have above 3 (professional level) in firearms. A score of 5 (highest value a stat cana go in WoD) in a skill means you are one of the absolute best in the world. You wouldn't have this unless it reflected your character concept.

Does my life count as a place I want to see Bakker interact?

biweekly = twice a week?

Maybe, depends on the time I suppose, and experience required, as I have none - for any game.
No sorry, I meant every other week.

Anyhoo - let us know more about what you have in mind with Roll20, how you want to go about it, generally how it's played, etc.

Roll20 is a website that facilitates rpg play online. Acts as a lobby/hub for playing and communicating.

I would want to see what players would be interested in. I'd lean towards WoD and a zombie survival game as WoD is an incredibly easy system to play especially for new players without access to print copies of the book. The game has a leaning towards "role play" (focusing on the characters, interactions, and choices) over "roll play" (focusing on the stats, rolls, and crunch). Thematically I would be running the game as a somewhat depressing story of continuing survival. Managing food, resources and survivors while dealing with zombies, the elements and other people in a post-zombie apocalypse world. Realistic modern characters interacting and surviving.

What were their complaints? Too difficult ( seems to be common feedback on the game, steep learning curve ).
I didn't play it myself so I can't get into to much detail but their complaints were that the ruleset was sub-par (unintuitive, congested, poorly-optimised) in comparison  to other games of the type. The models they considered top quality among miniature gaming sculpts.

, just seeing if any of you know of this game and have an opinion. Cool or not cool? It's pricey stuff, so hoping to get first hand account recommendation on it before I take the plunge.

I havn't played but aquintances at my FLG have complained about the rules for it. They tend to have good opinions on games. They make lovely models though.

Would anyone in this group have any interest in playing a biweekly game on roll20? I'd enjoy playing but wouldn't mind gming an l5r game (Samurai system with a really great setting and rules system) or a zombie-apocalypse themed World of darkness game.

Any news on an audiobook release yet? The great ordeal audiobook came out the same day as print edition can we expect the same as the Amazon release for TUC?

It hasn't been stated but in the prologue of TPN do the Dunyain who first find ishual not mention sranc? Should the Dunyain during Moe's time not be aware of that the sranc at least exist?

General Earwa / Re: Is there any interest for audiobooks?
« on: November 13, 2016, 11:50:06 pm »
I often prefer audiobooks as it is easier for me to listen while engaged in other priorities than to actually find the time to sit and read.

I felt the same I far preferred Devries over Orton. I feel that Orton can be weird and inconsistent in his pronunciation of certain names and words. Some of his pauses felt far too short or too long between some lines and paragraph breaks, this could however have been an editing error. Devries on the other hand sometimes reads dialogue in far different tone and cadence than I had imagined . I feel many lines I read with tones of defiance or wonder often came out sounding excessively whiney.

These small complaints a side they were both great  narrators. I never had to rewind due to not properly hearing a passage.

So did anyone ever play No Man's Sky? The reviews were so bad, and the internet hates it. But I have yet to find a first hand account of it that I trust.

I did. It's not so much that it was bad but that the device team made promises and claims that simply were not in the game. This went as far as prerendered images posing as screenshots in their steam store page.
The game was lack luster. Although pretty it lacked the content of plenty of other games f the same genre that are half the price or less.
