If you search for threads, you might find either good advice on finding people, or people in your area bemoaning the lack :)</p> felicity Re: Shaweet 2003-06-17T14:04:33+00:00 2003-06-17T14:04:33+00:00 <p>I don&#8217;t have a problem with that, I suppose. Cool weapons are novelties, though there&#8217;s just something about tearing kine apart with your bare hands and teeth. But if you like I can send plenty of ghouls your way. Being rather alone and bored in my neck of the woods, I make more than I need.</p> actionplant Re: Important: Forgot to ask 2003-06-17T14:02:03+00:00 2003-06-17T14:02:03+00:00 <p>I&#8217;m feeling more stuck by the day. I honestly wish more people here were into these games. As it stands, it&#8217;s either play on your own or don&#8217;t play at all. You&#8217;re fortunate!<br /> <br /> As for the character stories and whatnot&#8230;way cool. By all means, write on!</p> actionplant Re: Important: Forgot to ask 2003-06-17T13:25:09+00:00 2003-06-17T13:25:09+00:00 <p>I&#8217;m glad to hear you&#8217;re interested!&#8212;as to &#8220;interested parties&#8221;, Matt and I are still discussing when/if another game could start in our lives. Currently, Matt wants to be the Provider of Summer Games, as he has a strong hankering to run a Shadowrun campaign.<br /> <br /> I have some ideas for an Exalted campaign, but not too many. Ironically, the rich, detailed setting, which Matthew loves, makes me feel stifled. Yeah, I know, I know, they put lots of blank space on the map for you to put your own stuff in - but the metaphysics is so detailed that every time I try to think something up, I run up against practical issues - &#8220;Magic doesn&#8217;t work that way&#8221;, &#8220;If you kill that many people a Shadowland forms&#8221;, &#8220;Dragon Bloodeds can&#8217;t cast that spell&#8221;;s kinda frustrating. At the same time, I find some of the stuff mondo-inspiring - thinking about really iconic characters in other settings and how they&#8217;d exist and interact in the Creation of Exalted&#8230; so the answer on me and Exalted is, &#8220;Not yet.&#8221; Think of it this way - maybe I&#8217;ll start it after you gradumalate from school!<br /> <br /> And as to making Exalted characters, I have this to say: DON&#8217;T! It eats your brain! You can&#8217;t stop! I&#8217;m making a full freakin&#8217; circle, and I can&#8217;t play any of &#8216;em! It&#8217;s a horrible addiction! RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN!</p> felicity Re: Important: Forgot to ask 2003-06-17T13:07:13+00:00 2003-06-17T13:07:13+00:00 <p>I&#8217;m cirtainly interrested in reading more of your stuff! Are you wanting interrested parties to make their own characters to post? Assuming you&#8217;re planning on running one, that is&#8230;</p> Lady Zaria Important: Forgot to ask 2003-06-17T12:16:53+00:00 2003-06-17T12:16:53+00:00 <p>I forgot to ask in the main body of this article&#8212;are you guys interested by this stuff? Because I have several more Exalted character backstories in the works (doing this one sadly addicted me) that could eventually make their way up here. With character portraits, even! Any interest? I know it&#8217;s my site, but I do want people to read it.</p> felicity Re: Shaweet 2003-06-17T12:10:05+00:00 2003-06-17T12:10:05+00:00 <p>Really, it sounds like a job for <a href="">Riff</a>, who shares my feelings on the undead. Although I admit hating undead might just be an excuse for making and using cool weapons on his part. I mostly just play nethack and chuckle over killing Z&#8217;s.</p> felicity Re: Shaweet 2003-06-17T10:34:28+00:00 2003-06-17T10:34:28+00:00 <p>While doing so may prove to be my bane, I&#8217;d love to work on a project like that! An undertaking that diabolically massive is just way too cool to be ignored.<br /> <br /> Curiosity killed the nosferatu.</p> actionplant Re: Shaweet 2003-06-17T08:37:27+00:00 2003-06-17T08:37:27+00:00 <p>Well, while you&#8217;re in North Dakota, you&#8217;re pretty much safe from my undead-hatin&#8217;. Have not yet developed an Intracontinental Ballistic Stake. (Note to self&#8230;) :)</p> felicity Re: Shaweet 2003-06-16T21:46:25+00:00 2003-06-16T21:46:25+00:00 <p>You bet!<br /> <br /> I&#8217;ll always be a lover of the night myself. I have a hard time sleeping until dawn is practically on me, then I crash with a vengeance. I actually have honest to gosh fangs, not caps, nobody can seem to explain it, it&#8217;s just one of those things. As a kid I always thought they were really cool, and started getting into vampire culture as a teen. Now it&#8217;s something I like to entertain in my head, just for fun, but typically I only bite when I&#8217;m really playful.<br /> <br /> Hopefully you&#8217;ll have no propensity to kill me.</p> actionplant Re: Shaweet 2003-06-16T16:29:14+00:00 2003-06-16T16:29:14+00:00 <p>Thanks! Actually, I cut my Storytelling teeth on Mage: the Ascension. I&#8217;ve also GMed D&#38;D (3rd edition), maybe one Changeling one-shot, and I&#8217;m currently running <a href="">Buffy RPG</a> game. Eventually I&#8217;ll probably run Exalted, because Matt wobbles his lower lip about the fact that he runs it all the time and never gets to play. As to Vampire: the Masquerade&#8230;well, I suffer from a condition.<br /> <br /> My name is Felicity, and I&#8217;m an Undead Hater. Even Angel on Buffy makes me reach for a stake occasionally. Angel, Spike, and Drusilla are actually the first occasions of ANY undead tolerance on my part&#8212;so maybe there&#8217;s hope for me yet. So I&#8217;ve never played Vampire, and I&#8217;ve never Storytold Vampire. Although I could see my way clear to playing Drusilla as a Malkavian. I love her so.<br /> <br /> For background stories: Usually I know where I&#8217;m starting, and then I go from there. For instance, I knew the general gist right up until Exquisite Stillness walked out the door with her dad to become an assassin. After that I figured out as I went. Usually interesting little nuggets occur to me as I go.<br /> <br /> For Storytelling, I have various M.O.s, but I&#8217;ve been most successful coming up with overarching plot and then improvising the heck out of the day-to-day. That answer your questions? :)</p> felicity Shaweet 2003-06-16T16:03:48+00:00 2003-06-16T16:03:48+00:00 <p>Fun! You would make a great storyteller for Masquerade. Do you make it up as you go, or do you base on outlines, or what? Always interesting and fun to find out how other people write their material&#8230;</p> actionplant
