I know I haven't been a part of this with you but it's not because I don't like the idea, it's...well I'm am a rotten typist in chat and I read slowly. By the time I get my thought together and then hunt and peck in out the folks are off on a different thread.
uhh... kind of a mix of both. in general i make up a couple campaign ideas as "jobs" for the guild an the group chooses from them. if we don't get to finish a "job". which is more often the case we have the option to continue it or if the group doesn't remember or has fizzled on the idea i do a quick wrap up an we pick a new one.
alot of the games take a while because of the rp an character interactions vs wack an slash.
i dont really run rules as much as i'm not very familiar with any. (haha ~.~; )
im more a cause an effect...
its about the fun, thinking on your feet an enjoying the creativity.
as for characters.
i'm pretty open to anything as long as you dont go Omnipotence on me.
