    Elves are okay in Eberron.

    Elves in Dark Sun are desert running scavengers. I think that's a pretty cool take on the race.

    I've been trying to run a D&D game for nearly two years now

    this summer was going to be THE TIME to get a game together
    I bought all the Gamma World stuff, was gonna get everything ready

    ...but then a person cancelled, same person who cancelled the first time I was getting Keep on the Shadowfell together, and then I went on vacation, and then the same person is going to France for a year for school

    ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    In my campaign setting for DnD Elves are elitist, high mages who look down upon all the other races for being so primitive.

    That is to be said my campaign is super magitek and burrows heavily from sources like Avatar, Chronicles of Riddick and Warhammer 40k (with the Elves acting in the same position as the Eldar).

    I only had to buy the core set (corset?)

    but I bought the two expansions because I was really excited and it added so much stuff
    I'm still gonna be able to use it, there's tons of tabletop gamers at the college I'm going to
    still, I wanted to run a game with my friends :C

    I played Call of Cthulhu with my two buddies the other night.

    I was young hotshot detective Barnaby Jones along with my grizzled old partner detective Scott Wilson. We were the loose cannons of the Tulsa Police Department circa 1978. In addition to our maverick status, we tended to take the more "oddball" cases. We got the call to drive down to Norman, one of the handful of college towns in Oklahoma.

    We arrive at the campus and are taken to the crime scene, the victim, the resident professor of Native American History, had been dismembered and drained of all blood. Shockingly, no blood was found on scene. The only two clues we had were two odd stains in the room: one on the roof, near one of those easily moved ceiling tiles and another splattered against the wall. After a few rounds of questioning witnesses we learn that the Professor was something of a recluse and that a large man with braided hair was seen fleeing the campus the night of the murder. Finally, we get a call from forensics, the mysterious stains match with only one substance: chlorophyll.

    Puzzled by this development, we drive down to the Professor's house near campus. We pull up to the neighbor in the Professor's front lawn, yelling that someone was inside the house. We go in, guns out. After clearing the hallway, we hear a racket coming from inside the kitchen. I take point and charge in. Inside, I see a large well-built Native American man matching the rough description of our suspect. I tell him to freeze, he turns around and bolts out the back door. My partner tries to catch up, but he is too old for this bullshit. I take the shot. It hits dead center in his back. He doesn't even break his stride. Two more. Same thing. No stopping, no blood.

    Sufficiently freaked out and in no shape to talk to people, I let my partner go talk to the neighbor as I explore the house. It's covered in old dusty books and very fancy liquor. During my investigation I hear a noise coming from inside the garage. I draw my pistol and open the door, not quite ready for what's inside. Something that roughly resembled a human being was crawling and writhing on the garage floor. It's taught brown leathery skin cracked as it turned to face me, and long-since withered lungs emitted only a hollow groan. It latched onto my ankle as I shot it in the head. Across its now shattered skull, fresh green plant growth emerged and sealed it mere seconds after I fired. As it began to pull itself higher I took another shot, this time hitting it in its heart. It gasps and its grip loosens. Slowly it falls to pieces on top of me, transforming for a horrid leathery mummy to a pile of dried leaves.

    TO BE CONTINUED

    On a meta note, our GM knew that we were getting bored with the investigation bit so the story gets much much crazier as it goes on

    That is a dilemma. As somebody who has studied character optimization and theoretical game-theory for DnD 3.5 I can say that I hate powerful characters.

    They are just so boring to play.

    The best time I did have was, however, when I played a 3.5 warforged and my friend played a Minotaur. Most of our solutions to things were to chuck heavy objects at them. We took out a camp of drakonids by launching trees at them.

    Oh...well I've been out of the loop for awhile.

    I fucking love Eberron though. I played a cool Warforged Samurai/Kensai once that had swords that flipped out of his arms. I really want to give Dark Sun a whirl

    Well, keep me informed, and you will have your necromancer in a player party. but i might just die because, necromancers are soo out of my normal, half elf cleric/bard elf wizard paradigm.

    I've never really played a PnP RPG although it always seemed so fun. My friends tried to do DnD once but they weren't actually nerdy enough I guess, since their method of playing was go into a room, use the next door.
