    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant.

    Alright, well, i tried the "Critical Failures" IRC chat area and it seems to be as crowded as a place that's not crowded at all, so I'll try here.

    I'm thinking of running one of those "Role-playing games" and I'm guessing here is as good place as any to find willing victims participants. It is, however, going to be my first time ever running a game over the internet and I don't know the first thing about running a game over the internet (logistically speaking).

    I'm thinking of running a game of a new independant system called "Magical Burst" which is supposed to emulate the kind of action in an anime called Puella magica modoka or something like that. I am, however, adapting it into a system which is supposed to emulate Persona. So I'm going to run some kind of Persona 3-type game. The system itself is rather light on rules and uses only d6s.

    I'm unsure if I should go with PbP or with IRC sessions, but I am leaning heavilly towards IRC sessions. Nevertheless, what are the pros/cons of PbP and IRC? How do I set up an IRC chat and how do I set up a dice-rolling robot?

    Thanks in advance sirs and madams.

    PbP can take a lot longer to run, and you lose the standard table-top "real-time" feel of most games.

    So why did we need to see these useless guys who are not even part of anything?

    If you introduce characters, the least you can do is tell their names to the audience, damnit. Otherwise, you might as well just use cardboard cutouts.

    I wish I understood enough about economics to get more of the "debt ceiling" thread.

    Basically all I can understand from it is "Republicans are fucking america in the ass."

    The gist of it is: We need to raise the debt ceiling, because we've reached it (something we've done many times in the past with no big deal made over it) but Republicans are refusing to unless the Democrats come up with the exact budget, to the letter, that the Republicans want? More or less? So playing chicken with the entire country?

    That is the jist. Really the thread hasn't seemed to complicated on the economic end, unlike the actual economy thread here.

    Well I've been trying to read articles online as well, which is where I've been hitting more of the raw economic stuff.

  • MazzyxMazzyx Comedy Gold Registered User regular
    Probably lactose intolerant. Get some of the over the counter stuff to see if that helps. In general though Asians have a higher chance of being lactose intolerant than Europeans.

    For IRC, I would just use the #criticalfailures channel and Critical, the dicebot that lives within it.
