i think we're alone now

First post.

Welcome to the community, everyone.

This first question I have to pose I've asked before, but I'm still curious to how people at an administrative level feel about it.

What are your thoughts on IC quota? As in, a person must participate for so many hours a week or risk losing their character. Is it a good idea or horrible one? Is it ok in moderation or is it something that should never be used? How far is too far?

Gundam RPG

Hi Everyone, I'm new to the community, and I'd like to introduce my RPG - but first I shall introduce myself. My name is Rich and I"m a college student in Pennsylvania, a political science major. Anyway to cut to the chase, This is a web-based RPG about the Gundam series (Modeled more after Gundam Wing, but all are welcome - for example - my own character happens to be Char Aznable.) Anyway the title is

Excelsior's Gundam RPG

And the link is http://www.angelfire.com/gundam/excelsior

It is best viewed on Internet Explorer. It works fine on Netscape, Opera, Konqueror, and Mozilla, but the graphic arrangement is a bit quirky. I'd imagine it to work on other browsers too but those are all I currently have access to. Anyway, give a visit, and I do hope you enjoy!


An Introduction.


I've just joined the community, so I thought I'd just poke my head out and say hi.

I've been role-playing for a good ... oh... let's just call it "I-Don't-Wanna-Think-About-How-Long-Because-I-Don't-Wanna-Feel-That-Old" number of years, and I've been *running* games for a mere six of those. I can't say that I've done much in the way of online rpgs -- mostly I do tabletop and LARPs, and generally with my own game systems.

I'm a big advocate of ROLE-playing (character-driven) over ROLL-playing (stat-driven) games, and will always advise my players to ignore what they think I need them to do for the sake of plot and just do what their characters would naturally do.

Currently, I'm involved in one tabletop D&D game as a player (gasp! a rare treat!), and I've been running my own continuing LARP (that meets once or twice a month) for the past 5 years. In addition to that, I also try to have a one-night, one-shot giant "party" role-playing game every six months or so. These one-shot games are generally very fun, with points to be earned (in the form of achieving goals) for each character and even trophies and other fun prizes at the end. They're starting to get a little expensive, so I've even been considering selling tickets to these things, just to cover expenses.

Anyway, I just thought I'd say hello and that from what little I've seen so far, this is going to be a very interesting community to be a part of. :)
