Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
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!
I finally, after a long drought, have found some people who are interested in PnP gaming with me - mostly co-workers who I've gotten to know better in recent months. Anyway, most of them are new or pretty green when it comes to PnP stuff, and so I've been put in the DM/ST role sort of by default. Though I'd rather be on the player end as it's less time-consuming, I do have a lot of fun running things as well.
But my problem is this: I need a good, lighthearted game to start off with or I know they're going to be turned off pretty quickly. Preferably something with a light enough tone that some humor can be worked in, and with plenty of action to keep things moving along. A very streamlined, easy-to-understand ruleset is also a big plus. Do you all have any recommendations?
