I've been running a lot of storylines, and per Shadowrun we have goals/issues, so if any older players are interested in coming back as a current character, or making a new one I'd love to help to enagge their past goals/issues or the staff storyline....come on down!
Further, there's going to be a big Flashpoint occurring Halloween night and it'd be fun for some old cameos!
Lastly, lot of people haven't checked in, in some time and I spent many a game session with them and it'd be fun to say hey.
I did end up making a char on '63 earlier today after I talked to Theorem about the Fairchild thing - it was seeing Wicked there that made me think to ask, and yeah definitely not the same player Wicked@UH told me she, like, always uses the same PB and Wicked 63's is somebody different
That said, I feel like the rough thing in the new L5R is that it's still roll and keep but now its roll and keep with meaningful options/decisionmaking, meaning every roll is a two-step process. You can't simply put in a +command and even get a success/failure message. That alone seems like it's going to be incredibly slow to resolve in a MU setting.
And out for reals for a bit. Sticking around here is getting hard because it's making me want to try to do stuff and I'm not there yet, thus shouldn't. My temper being a giant pile of WTFery of late... well, yeah, kinda proves it. Not asking for sympathy, empathy, or forgiveness, just noting that I realize it's an issue and I'm not keen on inflicting that on y'all further.
No offense is intended to anyone here, but most of the folks I know only through here or the hobby I've had to take off skype and similar as well. Nobody's blocked or anything, but if I'm a mystery ? all of a sudden, that's why. It's not anything you did. It isn't that I dislike you in any way, or think that you've done anything screwy in even the smallest way, or anything like that. Please do not take it personally, it is sincerely not intended that way.
Hobby fu is just really unhealthy for me right now and if that's all we talk about, well, I kinda can't for the time being, no matter how well-meaning folks are. (And I know y'all are, and do appreciate that more than you might imagine.)
There's a couple folks I've known forever as friend-friends for a decade+, or that I mostly talk about knitting or random life philosophy or whatever with that are still around, but, uh, please grok that I'm not looking to talk game-fu at all. I do love you for wanting to invite and welcome, which is sincerely good of you and speaks so well of you and proves unquestionably why I think y'all are the best of the best, but as much as I <3 you for thinking of me and wanting to include me, I'd be a drag to be around and I refuse to shit on y'all's fun, because I do sincerely want y'all to have fun. It is, after all, the real point.
Good luck to y'all starting games or restarting games or just dreaming some day of running a game or creating a world. Good luck to people brave enough to try new ideas; you are needed, your ideas are needed, and they have value. I am sorry I couldn't help more. I wanted to. I realize that counts for less than a handful of magic beans, but I wish I could have finished something more useful to contribute along the way.
No weepy tears or hand-wringing, just be well, y'all. I'mma try to do the same.
