What should I run?
« on: November 03, 2017, 03:42:23 PM »
I'm going to run a game.  If you'd be interested in having me as a DM (warning, I'm a little rusty on the DM side of things), please look through this thread and vote on what you'd like me to run.

Current voting:

5th: Archon, oslecamo, Versatility_Nut, Strat
PF: Raineh, Archon, linklord, SorO


Original Post:

I was looking through all of my rpg books last night and it made me tempted to run something (I have a lot of things).  After all, it's been years, and the last time I was a DM I co-DM'd with Strat so it wasn't actually my game.

If I was to run a game, would you want to play?

If you would want to play, would you want 3.5/Pathfinder or something less common? 

I've got some other things I'd be tempted to run from Savage Worlds games to other more obscure stuff.  Book availability isn't an issue, I'm happy to help people out.  I also have Big Motherfuckin' Crab Truckers which is as wonderful as it sounds and the rules system is literally a page if silly one-shots are more your style.

Thoughts?

Nanshork as the main DM? Consider me interested. Would like some 3.5. Wouldn't mind Pathfinder too, either with homebrew (would like to use a class or two of mine) but not really other systems unless it's silly one-shot with one-page rules.

How would you feel about Shadowrun?

I've never played Shadowrun before, would be interested in learning through.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.

I...don't know if I could run Shadowrun.  I've got some 4th edition books (apparently I'm two printings behind now), but I've forgotten almost everything that I know about the rules.  I know the lore (without being enough of a buff to know specific timelines or dragons or most of the Corps or famous runners) and could get the theme down easily.  I could play it, but right now I can't run it.  If nothing else I need to get my DM legs back before I delve into games I'm less familiar with

I'll have to nix Shadowrun.

Games I am willing to run because I'm at home with my books:

3.5  (Homebrew accepted on a per brew basis, most of the stuff on the board would be fine)
D&D 5E (No homebrew, I'm not familiar enough with the system to assess homebrew balance)
Pathfinder (Minimal homebrew, however I have a whole lot of third party books and things can be worked out)
Starfinder (No homebrew, we'd be learning the system together because I've read through the entire core book but haven't dug deeply)
Savage Worlds (Again, no homebrew but I know the system)
Silly one-shot system about being a Big Motherfuckin' Crab Trucker

I prefer Pathfinder over 3.5 but can run either.  If I do Pathfinder it wouldn't be a 3.PF game, it would be purely Pathfinder.  That's just personal preference on my part.

I'd be on board with any of those. 
I've never got the chance to play Savage Worlds, but I read through the core book a while back.  Might need a refresher if we pick that.  Similar for Starfinder, but that seems like it might be easier to learn. 
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

Savage Worlds is easy.  Starfinder's biggest problem is that it isn't Pathfinder so there's a learning curve where one isn't expected.

Starfinder's biggest problem is that it is
Pathfinder's version of Modern. And while thankfully it does have a huge splat problem, each Class still gets over a dozen options you'll have to read up on. I don't really know a lot about it, but I have read up on it before so I could help with a crash course.

I don't see that as a problem.  I LOVE systems with massive amounts of integrated options.  Modern, Star Wars Saga Edition, Starfinder.  They're all great.

It almost sounds like you've picked the system you'd like to run Nan :)

I'd rather play it.   :P

I was just pointing out that what you talked about isn't a problem to me.

I'll run whatever people will play.

Let's try this again, things got off track.

I'm going to run whatever player's want me to play.

Os has made his opinion pretty clear.

linklord, Strat, SorO, what about you guys?  Everybody just want me to run a 3.5/Pathfinder game?  Have an opinion between those?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that everyone wants 3.5 so they can play homebrew.

Starfinder sounded all right but mostly just down for a new game so really it could be whatever.

I'd actually vote for anything other than that  :lmao

Not because I don't like 3.5 (obviously), I'd just rather play something that I'm not already playing.

Hmm speaking of voting, if it's up in the air let's just do that?

For each system that you'd be ok with playing just list your name & Nan can handle any tie breakers.
3.5: SorO,
5th:
PF:
Star: SorO,
Sav: SorO,

That's a good idea, than you SorO.

Hn, well, if you're linking elsewhere I suppose there's still a slot. I've wanted to use the DSP psionics for a while, but I'm up for something modern. Not done a game like that in forever.
I hate picking signatures.

Slots aren't going to be finalized until a system is settled upon.  The options are: 3.5, 5th, PF, Starfinder, and Savage Worlds.  Which of those would you be willing to play?  You can choose more than one.

Edit: Os, I just put you down for 3.5 and PF.  If any of the others spark your interest just say so and I'll make the adjustment.
