Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[IRC] Let's play a game! Cthulhutech today, come by and play!

Right, so I'm bored.

Normally, this would be pretty inconsequential.

But right now I'm bored with an idea.

We've got a lot of people here on Critical Failures, as well as a lot of games that we continually bemoan we don't get to play enough of, so on, so forth.

So let's change that!

How can we do that, Rainfall?
One of the big problems with RPGs is that everyone wants to run giant massive things that last for ages. This doesn't work on the internet, they just fall apart.

So what we're going to do is one-shots! Quick dungeons or single adventures that can be finished in a night or two. Then, we're going to post about them in this thread, talk about them, and have general fun!

Rain, you're stupid that won't work ever.
Probably not! Here's my plan!

1. Announce your game a week in advance, in this thread. Pick a night you want to run it on, a time you're available on, and whether or not you'll have pre-made characters done.

2. You get interest, again in this thread.

3. Play the game, on irc.slashnet.org, in a channel of whatever name you feel is appropriate. You can also hang out in #criticalfailures and be cool, if you're cool.

4. Post a log of the game, or a summary of events, and talk about how much fun it was!

So this is pretty much set up for system-light stuff, quick adventures, and fun times. I'll start, and show you guys how to do it.


HERE'S A GAME FOR YOU ALL
Date: Sunday, September 13
Time: 5 PM onwards, MDT (GMT -6)
The Game: Cthulhutech! An adventure in the Occult Underground of New York Arcology.
The Players: Mech Pilots and Tagers need not apply. 3 Premade sheets will be made, you can make your own character.
How Many: I'll roll with three or more. Anyone can join up.

So in one week from today, I'll be running a game. Let's see if we can get this forum buzzing.

And if you're a first-time DM/GM/ST/whatever? This is the place to post your game. Or for any game. Let's just rock out and have fun playing RPGs whenever we have the time, rather than sitting around.

Rainfall on

    Your ideas intrigue me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

    Seriously, I think this has significant potential for awesome. I'm thinking about trying out some new systems for running a game at a local con in a month or so, and having [strike]guinea pigs[/strike] people who aren't the same people I run everything with to get a feel for it might be a good experience, and it'll have to be set-up as a one-shot anyway.

    A week's notice? Pah! Everyone should just wait around in the channel for spur of the moment games.

    But really, I'll try and organise something for next week. I do have a game I need to get around to playtesting.

    Everyone should just hang around in the channel anyway because it's so lonely in there these days.

    I've popped in a couple of times, but no one else seemed to be about. I blame GMT.

    Also, would be totally up for playing some quick games.

    I'll have to see if I can find the time to run something.
    Maybe HoL.

    A one-shot of Geist would be spiffy.

    As a side note, I am well aware of the time problems - 9am on a Saturday? That's crazy talk, for most people. It's the problem with living in Australia/Japan. So if worst comes to worst, I might run another game in a few weeks at a different time. But I'd rather just get this Saturday game done.

    This seems sweet. Hopefully my schedule stops arguing with play times.

    Simon, I might actually be on the PC then, depending on how work goes Friday night, =P.

    Looks fun.

    How does a Geist one-shot sound to anyone?

    As in, I'd host one.

    I'd be interested in giving Geist a go, hopefully we're not in painfully incompatible time zones.

    Just a reminder that The Mountain Witch is going to be on in about 11 hours!

    Be there, or be slightly more square.
