Greetings

I came across this forum while searching various sites for online tools I could use in gaming sessions and signed right up since this seemed like a good place to find help, tools, ideas and so much more.

A little about myself now, My name is Randal, I'm 24 years old, married, and a proud (step)dad. You can call me Randal, or if you prefer to go off my screen name then Raven is fine as well.

I've played in several DnD games, none of which have been very enjoyable in the long run. It seems every DM I play under has a major flaw of some sort, ranging from the pain in the neck power-gaming munchkin DM who thinks he's God, the DM with a gnat's attention span always wanting to start a new game just to make a new character to play in his own games, and even a DM who had my character killed by another player just because he wasn't man enough to ask me to write up a different character or leave his group.

Recently I have moved to what most would call the middle of nowhere, and as you can imagine it can be a little hard to find gamers out here, especially considering I have no friends in the area yet. I have resorted to attempting to run an online game, more of a practice run for DMing than anything, with my wife (who I'm trying to teach) and another friend. Problem there is that the other friend is in the middle of exams and has had no real time to make a character, so we're having to wait a while to even get things rolling there too.

So as you can see my gaming experiences haven't been that many or that great, but I will not let these setbacks destroy my love of the game, and look forward to getting to know my fellow gamers here. Fair warning though, as my name may imply, I tend to wander a bit, so I may not be the most active poster or contributor, but I will do what I can when I can.

I get to be first!

To say hello to our latest member!

Welcome to the Inn...

Glad you stopped in and said hello. Sounds like you have had some interesting (and sad to say not all that unfamiliar) experiences with gaming. Hopefully you'll find some interesting things around here.

And hey if you're interested in GM's we are always pleased to have another one around here!

Let me know if you need anything...

Oh... and don't feed the Grugg, he's been bad...

welcome!

Welcome to the Inn! sorry you have had bad experiences in the past... hopefully, your luck will change here.

Play by post games are especially useful for those of us who live in the middle of nowhere/have little to no time to play tabletop. Drop on by the recruitment forums and see if you can find an opening to a game that sounds interesting to you.

Let no face go unlicked!!!

Well, okay, I'll withhold the facelicks for now... You're new here and we don't wanna unload too much on you all at once so I'll just tether myself and be content to say "Welcome to our little corner of Crazy"!

Can't add much more to what the others amongst our esteemed staff have already said, of course - they cover that kind of thing soooo very well. Glad that your initial visit led to you joining us, though... always nice to have fresh faces wandering the halls and such.

I think the saddest part of my gaming experience is the fact that the 3 examples I have listed are the only DMs I have ever played under...

I'll probably run several ideas by other DMs here, so I can hopefully avoid being another bad DM experience for someone else, any and all tips anyone can offer are greatly appreciated.

Well...

Good way to break in the new guy Eol...

*shakes head*

Then again I guess if he sticks around after you threatened to face lick him... he's a keeper!

I thought...

...I recogonized you!


And yes... I said recogonized...


Helpful Hint: Don't facelick Meri... it freaks her out!

Additional Helpful Hint: If you've got any particular topics that you wanna open a general chitty-chat kind of thing on, feel free to start up a new topic in the Common Room and ask away... If you make it, they will post.

Welcome to the inn!

I think we'll be able to provide you with something better than what you've experienced so far.

What strikes me is that you stuck with the game after mostly bad experiences. Good though, since we can show you how it's properly done!

Yeah, with facelicks. that's how

Greetings

As Iceland's representative of this Inn, I would like to welcome you to this little nook of less-than-desired sanity. As you may or may not have noticed, we are a colorful flock of gamers, rulers and players.

Don't let that scare you, though. As scary as we may seem, we are of the kinder brand. Need help? Ask away. Need friends? You've found them. Need a hug? We're not that kind of friends, you perv.

Seriously, though, you've stumbled upon a good place

don't worry

A little insanity now and then is definitely not going to scare me away, I'm nuts! I have been quoted time and time again as saying things like, "normal is boring", "sanity is over-rated", and "insanity makes everything more fun!"
