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.

One of my current favour games is the great Etherscope but it's not a game I see mentioned a lot at all. Is there much love out there for it?

Personally I think it's a great combination of grittiness, heroism and all the good bits of steampunk.But it never get's talked about very much. So who out there like Etherscop? Tell us about cool stuff that has happened in your games or characters you've come up with. I'd really like to hear about it.

Thanks

They are spreading. It seems that my own countrymen have now decided to set up their own version of the Forge. And for such an elitist piece of wankery, what do they call it? Why, its the Collective Endeavour! Self-obsessed elitism and not very collective at all. Lots of jizzing over ecah others game designs and backslapping shit.

Just thought youd like to know theres somewhere else to target now.

Thanks

I've been making an effort to read up on a lot of the theory on here and looking at some of the 'competition'. A lot of the 'Forgey' theory, sites and games come from the USA (it seems to me), but has this kind of thing spread to the UK?

Most of the games shops I know of stock a good range of RPGs, but I've almost never seen any of the 'non-traditional' games mentioned here on the shelves. I've also never met anyone who plays any of these games. or, at least, has never played more than once.

So, are there folks in the UK producing 'Forgey' games? I know Mongoose produce solid OGL stuff (not always my thing, but more power to them), there's that new Corporation RPG (which seems quite intriguing) and a|state from a few years back (but that seems to have disappeared off the map). Is it the case that the Uk is relatively free of what I'm increasingly seeing from reading a lot of threads and blogs as a bunch of pseudo-arty nonsense? Conversely, are there any good UK games that I might not have heard of?

Thanks
Frank
