    Dungeons and Dragons

    Well, as summer winds to an end and people start heading back to school, moving away, and such, the weekly D&D game I run has lost a few of its regular members. Those of us who remain are beginning a new campaign over the next few weeks, and are looking for one or two players to round out our group.

    We're located in NKY, about 10 minutes south of the Brent Spence, and play most every Sunday evening from 4-9pm. If there's anyone in the area interested a game, or you'd just like more information, please drop me a PM.

    pencil and paper? Geek.

    Be a real man and play a MMORPG.

    Never have to even leave the house, let alone actually interact with another human being in person. There no one will care how close to the Brent Spence Bridge you live.

    Re: Dungeons and Dragons

    Do you guys listen to 8-track tapes and watch the black and white TV while you play?


    seriously.... MMORPG, google it.

    Much has happened in the world since Wrath of Khan. Al Gore invented the internet, for one thing...

    I heard one of them draws their character, let's call it a 'toon, on an etcha-sketch and holds it in front of his face when it's his "turn".

    Oh, that's cold, when geeks turn upon their own...

    I prefer actual human contact with a group of friends, kicking back a few beers, telling jokes, and rolling some dice to sitting in front of a PC in a darkened room.

    MMORPGs are like porn - they're entertaining, but I'd rather have sex.

    Well, half of our group, including myself, are married with kids, so we don't really worry about finding dates anymore.

    That's what these MMORPG'ers don't understand. The whole point of role playing is human interaction. It's like improv acting. I've come up with some of my funniest ideas and jokes while riffing with my friends and playing superhero RPGs.

    (D&D is for cretins, BTW).

    So what are you playing, Hero System? M&M? I'll respect your statement so long as you don't say Palladium.

    I've got half the group willing to give Shadowrun a shot, but we've been sidetracked by the idea of running a pirates/swashbucklers game - which D&D is magnificently suited for.

    Hero System, but it's been years since I played. The last campaign I ran was much like the universe in "The Venture Bros." cartoon, except it was 10 years ago. We were a group of patriotic heroes called the United States States' Friends, or USSF. (They used to be called the United States Friends League, but they got sued by a bunch of old football team owners, so they changed it.)

    I'd rather hang out with people I know than jump online and go adventuring with Sven the submissive Norwegian necrophilliac and Larry the child predator who's looking for his next victim.

    I meet enough of those types on RedsZone.

    Exactly, I haven't played in a long time, but I remember a lot of late nights having a lot of fun, sharing stories, and arguing about the rules. We had one guy that was a pretty inexperienced DM. That made for hillarious nights. Once he got a monsters XP confused with HP, so we had to kill something that had 450 HP.
    Computer games don't come close.

    I still have all my books .. Got the first printing of all the AD+D stuff from the 70's/80's ( don't remember when they came out). I lost my basic and expert D+D boxed sets though
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
