Anyone else enjoy nothing else as much as sitting down around a table with 4 or 5 fellow gamers, entering into a different world and slaying a few dragons?

(And are any of you in or around Baltimore and looking for a 4E game to join? ;) )

I started playing D&D (BASIC D&D, the precursor to AD&D, as in the 1979 version with paperback books), in the very early 80's. I actively gamed thru college, and then got out of it after moving to Baltimore.

I recently got back into it with 4E and have been gaming online, and Ceashels is starting to learn and we're actively looking for a local group.

We're doing 4E now..I also play Shadowrun, Cyberpunk, World of Darkness (the old one..the new one blows) Call of Cthulu, GURPS, Rifts, etc. etc. etc...

A toast to you fellow gamer..*raises glass of tepid mountain dew*

I used to play D&D back in my college days. That was 25 yrs ago. After I moved away and had kids I couldn't find another gaming group. I really miss it.

I'm a groupless gamers at the moment. ill do D&D, but prefer non-level systems like White Wolf or GURPS. If anyone here is in Central NY and wants to get a group going let me know.

For that matter, would anyone here be interested in a GURPS Lite PbP (play by post)? How much more frugal can a gamer be than playing from a free rules set?

I play most systems.. except Champions (blech!)

I've never done a play by post game. How the heck does that work?

Play by post means that a forum is used instead of in person or by chat. Since at most there's one or two posts per person per day, generally combat is kept to a minimum, as it tends to be the most dice intensive part of the game.

I quit WoW and went back to Warhammer Online with DH. We prefer the open RvR system a whole lot better there than it was on WoW, so that's our preferred game atm.

Mek42, being an infrared your security clearance is not high enough to be speaking to an organism from outside the compound.

Please report to room 32 for termination. Remember, the computer is your friend!

I haven't learned pen & paper yet for D&D but I play it online. I have the dice! Does that count?
