I'm a very experienced GM looking to play or run a regular game. I loathe the min/max of the new D&D systems, but I'll GM 2nd edition AD&D.
I prefer Rolemaster for fantasy, but right now I'm dying to run a Battletech game. I've run multi-year games in:
- Battletech (3025 & the clan crap)
- Star Frontiers
- Vampire (including the Providence LARP way back when)
I GM for the long haul. If people are interested in a game, but don't know if the game is for them, then I'll whip up some scenarios for a night of fun.
WARNING: I'm a strict GM when it come to character creation, but the reason is I want characters that are more than hack and slash cannon fodder that are balanced in the world. Characters that have useful skills outside of combat, that interact with the outside world.
A good example is when I ran a D&D game where the players bitched and moaned about min/maxing their characters so much that I let them. They all died tragically in a snowstorm I warned them about via an NPC. The mage was too cold to memorize burning hands from his book. The "ranger" never took any wilderness survival. No one was human so they didn't have any torches or flint 'n' steel because they all had infravision. No one brought a tent or bedroll. After they tweaked their characters and started over, the game lasted for two years, and was a ton of fun.
I'd also be interested in playing if any games are running. I can min/max with the best of them, but I prefer slightly wacky, yet competent characters. One of my favorites was "H8" - A Troll Decker who always carried a Goodyear (tm) Inflatable Doll for Trog Pleasure
with him. Another character was "Scooter" a teen Nosferatu with the merit of extra skin between his legs and arms he could glide with. The storyteller hated that character because I was always getting the dirt on the Prince and Primogen.
I'm free To run a game any night but Fri/Sat. I'll swing by the boardgame night soon, as I love to play those too. If you have questions lemme know.
