Join me as we traverse through a modern day Adventure where an event occurs rendering most advanced technology useless (to say more would give too much away - suffice it to say the event is quite plausible) is explored. Do you have what it takes to survive the event? Can you negotiate the landscape in the throws of the aftermath while others panic and the very fabric of society begins to unravel? How will your views of humanity, ethics and morals weather the ever-changing landscape that confronts you?
I'm looking for two - six people interested in seeding an Adventure (at least running a mini) and either is versed in GURPS or is willing to learn along with me. If you are the former, I might be interested in mind melding with you prior to the first session (which will be devoted to character generation). If you are the latter I suggest downloading the freebie 4Ed Lite from e23. GURPS is lethal on combat and heavy on role immersion. If you are 100% sold on level progression and hack n slash this might not be your cup of tea.
The Adventure is being fleshed out, and I hope to have enough material and interest to start as GM over the holidays (i.e. after gobble and before gifting).
To Be Determined. During my first visit to Madness Games the clerk informed me of the gaming room they have next door; I thought we could utilize this initially. I’m currently envisioning a monthly gathering, no more than bi-monthly. This would be either over a weekend or after hours on weekdays. Feel free to shoot me an email and we’ll go from there.
Then I cut my gaming teeth on OEd D&D Basic boxed set when just a pimply lad and evolved with the game and genre, gaming heavily and also dabbling in Gamma World, Boot Heel, and Traveller. Through periods of military, college and beyond I played in intensive bursts of varying durations within 1-2 Ed D&D, Aftermath and Shadowrun until roughly 2000, at which time for lack of diverging into a lengthy conversation, suffered burnout. I have not thrown bones in the RPG genre since. I also spent bursts within the consim realm as well.
I have also gamed off and on with board games; both consim and Euro (about the time I discovered D&D I also found a board game called Tactics at a yard sale – another story). These filled the void the burnout created.
Now Since 2011, I am into the 6th novel of Steven Erikson's genre defining Malazan Empire series and read how the backdrop was inspired by a campaign he ran using the GURPS system (I knew, instinctively some would say, that this had to have been wireframed/ fleshed out in an RPG), and got the bug again. And after reading up on GURPS I elected to get back into gaming; but I don't really want to delve into the fantasy realm (at least not at this time). But who knows down the road?
