This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Ohhh. Now there is a game I would like to play! Would that be the classic BG or the new Battlestar Galactica?

Playing: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, much to my chagrin. I don't like the setting and I really hate the system, but  rarely get to play and it's nice to do so instead of GMing all the time. My girlfriend should be starting Mage up soon. Then I'll be all over that instead. Um, Mage. Not my girlfriend. Well, that too. Oh you fuckers know what I mean!

Running: Dark Heresy.

Want To Play: Call of Cthulhu. Talislanta. Dark Heresy. Savage Worlds. Wraith the Oblivion.

Want To Run: Savage Worlds. Aces and Eights. WFRP (which is what we usually play). Dog Town. Talislanta. Hackmaster 4e. Conan d20 in the Kingdoms of Kalamar setting. Orpheus or Wraith the Oblivion.

Playing:
A 'coming of age' campaign for Raptoran characters ('races of the wild'), which is AD&D 3.5 (not super familiar with the system but the game has started to grow on me thanks to this campaign)...
A dark version of Digimon season 1 (one of my players happens to be a creative GM),
An alien invasion BESM game,
An online wiki Amber game.

Running:
Amber Diceless (third story arc to my long long long spikards campaign) which we started last friday.
I'll start running Nephilim as soon as I've assimilated the background and system satisfactorily enough.

Want to Play:
L5R (I have GMed it a hundred times but never get to play :( ),
Kult (same thing),
Call of Cthulhu,
Amber Diceless,
Nephilim.

Want to Run:
Kult (I've traumatized most of my players, must find new victims),
Ghost in the Shell RPG (using Ex Machina's rules),
Blame! RPG One-Shot (based on the manga, using Ex Machina for it too),
other things I can't think of right now...
Running:
Dungeon Crawl Classics (influences: Elric vs. Mythos, Darkest Dungeon, Castlevania).
DCC In Space!
Star Wars with homemade ruleset (Roll&Keep type system).

Playing (Tabletop) :
An unknown True20 game following the implosion of our GURPS Mystaria game. (Our GM was too clever for his own good and lack of players scuppered his plans.)
Playing (PbP Forum) :
Dragon Warriors 'Shadowed Sails' - evil and intrigue in the T'aashim lands and the crusader held city of Ibrahim.
Tunnels and Trolls 'Delve till you die' - a simple T&T dungeon delve where each player has a stable of six characters as replacements. So far, we're on a boat...
GURPS 'Black Ops 1961' - Set in the earlier days of the Company, the WhiteHouse has gone into full security lockdown, blood was seen on the windows, and the Company's agent in the Secret Service has gone offline. Are we bad enough to save President Kennedy from otherworldy foes? (I get the sneaking suspicion that the afterword to this game will involve one of us with a sniper rifle at Dealey Plaza)
Running (Tabletop) :
Buggerall - A game with no rules, no dice and crucially, no players.
Running (PbP Forum) :
Cyberpunk 2020 'Modern Life is Rubbish' - Designed to be a series of mini scenarios with a central theme leading to a climax. Currently comatose with the occasional twitch. Lost one player to real-life internet issues and another two who are too busy to post but don't want to quit the game.
Would like to Play (Tabletop or PbP Forum) :
Something Sci-Fi along the Firefly lines of independant traders working on both sides of the law.
Would like to Run (Tabletop) :
Savage Worlds 'Kiwi Scorpions' - A WW2 LRDG game with each player running a truck with a 3-4 man team.
Tunnels & Trolls 'High Seas Floater' - Pirates, T&T style. Yarrr.
Would like to Run (PbP Forum) :
Sod All - I've learned my lesson.

The new Battlestar Galactica.
Will aim for paranoia in the group guessing just who is a cylon. :D

Playing:  Just finished playing in Mr A's 1970s British punk Buffy game, great stuff

Running:  Going back to my Classic Traveller with homebrew setting from Monday

Want To Play:  Happily, any of the stuff the other two GMs in my group run, but particularly Malefices (which I doubt I shall, I think I was the only one really into that)

Want To Run: Call of Cthulhu.  Also, a classic dungeon crawl with equipment rules, encumbrance rules, the whole nine yards, played almost (but not quite) as a boardgame.  Probably using Rules Cyclopedia (as I own it), go into the dungeon, try to get out with as much as you can, retreat, rest up, go again, classic D&D as Gary made it.

Playing:Sadly I never play. No one else is willing to run a game. Despite  repeated encouragement from me.


Running: Several things at once actually: D20 Modern Zombie Horror Survival Game-set in near present day Grand Rapids, where we all live.

D&D 3.5e-We just bought these books, and created a whole campaign world from clothe (The Middle Kingdoms), so we're getting our use out of them. The PC's have just liberated, through purchase, 10,000 slaves. It wiped them out financially, and it's threatening to cause a civil war in the region their at, since they plan on just freeing them. (Add int hey bough nearly every available worker out there in a market that needs people...well it's going to be funny.)

We just finished an SR3 campaign in which they played a street gang that rose to control their neighborhood. Intrigue and betrayal was the watchwords for this game. The game just ended after they finally betrayed, and murdered their Yakuza "Boss", a middleman that controlled their hood for the Oyabun. After striking a deal, and disgracing him they were finally able to murder him.

Tomorrow we're short a few players, so we're playing another one shot. The last one was a Buffy inspired D20 Modern game, in which they hunted down paranormal creatures that murdered and ate people across the Pacific Northwest.

Want To Play:  Anything. I never get to play. I crave a TMNT game for some reason.

Want To Run: A Twilight 2000 inspired D20  Modern Game, Another D&D 3.5e game, a superheroes game of some sort. A GI Joe inspired D20 Modern Game

Edit

All of my games are tabletop. I am playing in two PB3's but they are both stalled.

Playing: Eberron game over AIM with some buds from DE. I might have to quit if the game I'm running starts meeting regularly (crossin' my fingers).

Running: Dungeons and Dragons. Perfect bunch of players really... the "played once or twice back in the day" variety. Familiar enough that I don't have to explain so much. Unfamiliar enough that there's little rules abuse, and I can still throw them a curveball now and again. We met this past Friday, and if all goes well the game may continue even after that.

Want to play: Something that isn't Dungeons and Dragons. Nothing against Dungeons and Dragons... I just want to try other things. More specifically though: Jovian Chronicles/Heavy Gear, Hellboy by way of Mutants and Masterminds, or Unknown Armies.

Want to run: More of what I'm already running? If I have to pick something else, then Iron Heroes, Star Wars Saga, or something giant robots using True 20 and Dream Pod 9's mecha compendium.

I'm playing in a couple of LARPs right now.

I really want to run: Christ. Anything, as soon as I have a stable player base and the time. I've had a NWoD mortal ghost-haunting game ready for a while, and I'm dying to run my True20 D&D game, but trying to set a campaign style up for just a short run, since we're all really low on time these days.

I really want to play: Burning Wheel's Under a Serpent Sun setting. I'm going to be a gin-soaked wizard with a .45. There's nothing that isn't awesome about that.
God in the Machine.

Here's my website. It's defunct, but there's gaming stuff on it. Much of it's missing. Sorry.
www.laserprosolutions.com/aether

I've got a blog. Do you read other people's blogs? I dunno. You can say hi if you want, though, I don't mind company. It's not all gaming, though; you run the risk of running into my RL shit.

I'd be interested in hearing more about the 18th Century CoC game, the sword and planet AD&D game and how the EPT game is going.

The others interest me too, but the above I might run myself hence the particular interest.

Forgot to say originally, one of my players really wants me to run Space 1889 again.  I love the game, so that'll happen sometime this year all going well.
