I stumbled onto this website last Tuesday, through some random google search for a cool rpg game (having eaten most games) Got addicted right away, I heard about these style of books before but alas never ever saw any of them, anywhere. Been down with flu since Tuesday so I'm pretty much dividing my time between playing the story games on my phone, gaming on the pc, studying and sleeping.
I've been so damned impressed with the games so far that I felt a lil' praise and a 'hi' were in order, so here. So far I've played a bunch of games by EndMaster; Ground Zero, necromancer, just finished Paradise Violated for the 7th time and JJJ-thebanisher's stories; Mattias the One Knight and The order of the Midnight Sun. I love the style of writing, the choices, the storylines, just fun fun fun! =D
And checked on the background of the choose your own adventure stuff, being a history student I was a bit baffled about the mention of Charlemagne, you gotta be shitting me right?
Anyhow, tidbit about myself FYI. Studied IT, now studying history (with teachers degree). Extreme gamer, I was probably born with a game controller in my hand, grew up with pc's, positively played every shooter on a PC, but that's always been countered by my love for RPG's (Ultima, quest for glory, Baldurs gate, fallout, The elder scrolls, lots, lots more.) Immersive, freedom of choice, verbal and graphic violence, god I love it haha. I'll probably pop in here from time to time, I'll definitely check out more stories! Oh and yes, much love to the creators of this website and the writers of the stories, I'ma leech some more textual fun!
Ack nearly forgot, for those of you who do not know of this, go and grab the game King of Dragon Pass. Its this old game that was designed back in the day for windows 95 (so your pc will run it, period.) Basically, build your own viking esque village in a fantasy setting, with event driven storyline. Now the fun stuff is, its like choose your own adventure. Blob of text describing the event, beautiful drawings depicting the event, a number of choices for you to take. Never heard of it but its a true gem, tough as nails, more than 450 different events, all with their own choices, outcomes, etc etc. If you love choose your own adventure you will bloody worship this game, trust me. =)
Hola man. Thank God Almighty for sickness. You'll find plenty of great stories and I hope you write your own eventually. I also see you could be a quiet promising promising apprentice of us writers galore. History, always one of my favorite subjects.
Also, this is'll probably be moved to newbie forum.
Best win-95 game is Activision's Battlezone. No question. The only game ever to have successfully blended action and strategy.
The best game on this site, Alkador, is Mommy, can I go out and kill tonight? with Order of the Midnight Sun, Braak the Briton, Gauntlet 2, Vengeance and the Wal*Mart game coming in close behind.
Yea I saw your thread, my friend who GM's and I have been searching for an internet DnD program/tool. As a matter of fact I abused my paranormal powers and sensed this reply coming, so I pitched the idea to him an hour or three ago when I was at his place (playing DnD as a matter of fact.) and he was rather enthustiastic.
One minor setback would be the fact that we use homebrew rules based on some archaic (dutch) DnD ruleset from the game Dark Dungeons. Never got around to 3.5 cause we never liked the whole HP business, too global.. I mean what's better than having one of the chars limbs cut off and have the others see if they leave him or carry him to the camp, or .. <insert totally random choice> haha.. Ahem. So yea, definitely. =)
Not too sure about the timezone. Dutch is GMT +1. And the windows clock in my lower right corner just told me london is gmt 0. So london should be one hour difference, one hour behind the Netherlands?
Aye nearly midnight, at my posting its 11:36 pm here. Is there a spot on this forum where we could open a thread to discuss to further, as to not derail this simple Hi thread any more :P Would dread to scare off any potential fans of me, obviously.
Dude if you can join in our Sunday/Saturday game it would be epic (assuming we can get the timing right)
We've got a ranger, paladin, fighter and rogue (that's me )
I've seen six people at once before. Besides the problem is with single player disruptions. Less people = Higher chance of a complete game.
We should upgrade to 4.0 Edition of Dungeons and Dragons after this campaign. I heard its more balanced and...(drumrolls) it has a Fullblade^^.
Oh i'm pretty sure we can iron out any difficulties we encounter, a little flexibility and improv comes a long way =) Saturday evening probably not as that's usually taken, but heck rarely anything sunday evening. So doing some cool DnD'ing is more than an option for me.
If a single person is able to link it with WOW, then the game is ruined FOREVER.
Strangely enough. Almost every 4.0E player I met compared it to WoW. Queer.
Yo Alkador! I know I'm late, but whatever. GUTEN TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG!
So apprently JJJ likes you, so you're either not Bob, or he's become very clever. Well, make yourself at home and MAKE A STORY. Seriously, I think you can make some damn good stories.
Ahh alrighty, misunderstood. Well I fear participating will be rather difficult then, but who knows, if I ever find myself online at those hours I will most certainly let ya'll know!
We had a home brew scifi game as well a bit back. Sort of like, design a character with sci-like skills and roll for starting gear and such. I turned into a pilot of sorts, started with a crappy shuttle. Did some cargo hauling, trading, planet side missions, etc. Make some cash, get some nicer gear, outfit my shuttle with some improvements, took on more crew. That sort of thing.
Or were you thinking of something more grander scale, or perhaps not in space but only a sci fi setting?
