    Also to @‌Salvation122 BobCesca‌ japan‌ Captain Carrot

    Would it be feasible to shunt the meetup time an hour back (2pm/7pm)? It's not vital, I can reschedule what I normally do at 6pm, but I figured this may be slightly simpler.

    Works for me.

    Ditto.

    Would it be possible for us to do Tuesday instead of Thursday? When I was listing my availability I forgot about my weekly therapist appointment at 7pm EDT on Thursdays. I would also be amenable to pushing back a half an hour. But a day switch would allow us to keep the same time and I don't want to keep anyone up late if they can't do it.

    Let me know.

    I can't do Tuesdays. I've already committed to working the last 2 Tuesday evenings of April. I have no problem pushing our start time on Thursdays back, though.

    So there are a few scheduling things to work out, people having not PMed me about their Monday night neances or erotic massage appointment, so I am going to take today and allow everyone to PM me with any conflicts that they have and then we will hammer this down in 24 hours.

    I am going to try and cause the minimum amount of disruption to the existing plan, but if you think you might be a better fit elsewhere, or you forgot that you are giving birth every FRiday at 9, now is the time to say so!

    ADDITIONALLY: to veryone else, if you are suffering I-didn't-sign-up remorse, I am TEMPORARILY RE-OPENING SIGNUPS ON A PROVISIONAL BASIS. If I can't make some people's schedules work and they have to drop out, there may be openings. Or maybe enough new people will want in to create entire new games.

    Torchbearers on the Starless Sea
    What System: Torchbearer, using a converted module
    When: Weeknights (Mon-Thurs), starting at 7PM EST
    Who: Minimum two players, Maximum three

    Pitch:

    Since time immemorial you and your people have toiled in the shadow of the cyclopean ruins. Of mysterious origins and the source of many a superstition, they have always been considered a secret best left unknown by the folk of your hamlet.

    But now something stirs beneath the crumbling blocks. Beastmen howl in the night and your fellow villagers are snatched from their beds. With no heroes to defend you, who will rise to stand against the encircling darkness? The secrets of Chaos are yours to unearth, but at what cost to sanity or soul?

    Torchbearers on the Starless Sea pits a group of murderhobos against the legacy of the Chaos Lords and their corrupted hordes. Delving beneath the crumbling ruins, the characters discover ancient crypts, a starless sea, and an ancient ziggurat, where death and treasure await in equal measure!

    If you're interested and want more info, PM me. This game will not run without at least two players. Please see info in the OP for what the Torchbearer system is about.

    I also would have trouble with Tuesday.

    So it looks like starting a bit later on Thursday is the way to go, assuming that's good for Rchanen.

    OK, here is the current state of the union:

    - Nova_C and moridin889 have swapped succcessfully. Good work, guys. <3
    - VeeVee has dropped out of Elldren's game, leaving a slot open that night (Friday 7pm CST).
    - Deebaser has a prior engagement on Mondays, so he is being shifted from Mazzy's game to another to be determined later. This means there is a spot open on Monday night EST.
    - Vanguard's game is now scheduled for Thursday nights EST. Elldren has shifted to it, leaving two slots remaining.
    - Elldren's departure opens up a space in LoserForHireX's game, as well as an opportunity for that game to shift to Wednesdays or Fridays as appropriate.
    - Dynagrip, DUnadan, and Brutal_J have expressed interest in joining up for games and I will do my utmost to find them homes and fill out the roster.

  • JacobkoshJacobkosh Gamble a stamp. I can show you how to be a real man!Moderator mod
    For the time being I think we have Elldren's game back to full with the addition of Dynagrip

    @‌jacobkosh Depending on venue, we may have scheduling issues on Thursday nights. If all three of us want to use the two IRC channels, that is.
    Also, assuming no objections from the players, I will be running a Core/Hunter game. Set in Vancouver. In fall of 2012. Make of that what you will.

    Aside from the two IRC channels, there is also Roll20, which has very robust functionality (character sheet storage, auto-logging of chat, a dicebot, etc etc) and which I believe is free (if it isn't, someone please let me know).

    ONE OTHER THING: I know we said we'd begin right after PAX, but I know some people take that vacation into the next week or just need time to recover. That is totally fine! Discuss schedules amongst your groups; if your group has difficulties meeting for a week or whatever, no worries.

    I'll be sticking to the Thursday schedule, as it works better for everyone else. Would it work for you to push it back a half an hour? So start at 8 pm EDT?

    Hey whats a good free IRC client?

    I used to use (way back in the day) mIRC. Which is nice but payware now. I am not looking to spend money for an IRC client. RPG books yes (because those are the stuff of life). IRC client. No.

    I just use Mibbit. Admittedly, I'm not looking for a lot of features in my client, but I can configure it to auto-connect and use specific names, and I can log in from anywhere and get the same settings, so I'm pretty okay with it.

    @Elldren‌ @Mazzyx‌ @LoserForHireX‌ @Salvation122‌ @Vanguard‌ @simonwolf‌ @PotatoNinja‌ @Rear Admiral Choco@jakobagger‌ @Thomamelas‌ @MrAnthropy‌ and really @ everyone else too but I am particularly aiming this at the GMs out there:

    So because I am bored and because I am a nerd (a deadly combination) I have been working on a little project in my spare time. At home, when I GM games, I've always liked to assemble little Youtube playlists of music to have running in the background to help set the mood. And gradually I would get more ambitious and start creating playlists for certain settings and moods, so I could have, say, spooky music for exploring a tomb in D&D, and then fight music for when the orcs attack, and so forth. Video game music is particularly suited for this as it's already meant to be ambient and it often comes with different tunes for fights and exploration and so forth.

    The frustrating thing about this is that dudes on Youtube fucking suck and are always organizing their shit badly (a "complete playlist" of some soundtrack that is missing half the tracks) or get their accounts deleted so my playlists would suddenly be full of [deleted video] tags with no hint as to what had been there for me to go find another copy of it.

    So being, as I said, bored, I decided to take matters into my own hands and upload my own videos to assemble my own playlists, and naturally this spiraled out of control and has become a big new project. But that's cool, because it's fun and it's something to do and it's something I can share with you guys.

    I made a new channel, RPG Moods, to store it all. And here are the playlists, organized by genre. Some are more complete than others (Urban Horror, for World of Darkness-type stuff, was kind of a pain in the ass to populate. There are fewer gothy games out there than there ought to be.) But all of these should have at least half an hour of appropriate music and some are five or six times longer than that.

    CYBERPUNK
    Cyberpunk Ambient
    Dangerous Places Ambient
    Jacked in to the Matrix Ambient
    Asian-Themed Ambient
    Dives and Clubs
    Tension
    Combat
    Matrix Combat
    Epic Combat
    Creepy and Horrific
    Love & Lust
    Dramatic Exposition


    URBAN HORROR
    Urban Horror Ambient
    Dangerous Places Ambient
    Asian-Flavored Ambient
    Bars and Clubs
    Tension
    Combat
    Epic Combat
    Sad and Grim
    Doomed Romance
    Dramatic Exposition


    FANTASY
    Wllderness Ambient
    Urban Ambient
    Dungeon Ambient
    Exotic Ambient
    Taverns and Bars
    Tension
    Combat
    Epic Combat
    Heroic Themes and Victory
    Holy Places
    Unholy Places
    Romance
    Sad and Grim
    Martial Moods
    Dramatic Exposition


    Suggestions for new additions are welcome. My criteria are pretty simple: it needs to be ambient (no vocals to distract from the actual work of gaming) and it ideally will have tracks that can be easily sorted by mood. Future genres I am thinking of tackling are Space Opera and Modern-Day Adventure.

    So, these have vocals, but you really don't have to pay attention to them at all to get the "this is more than a little off" feel for WoD-type stuff. Really basically anything by Nick Cave, but these in particular:
