Just throwing a post in here in case Gavvin had forgotten this game...  (I tend to forget my games that don't pop up with new messages.)

Man, the idea of a wizard duel sounds fun -- did I miss anything? I feel like I missed something.

You've missed a number of duels/arenas folding because Players up and walked away.  The Wizard Duel has not started and only Derrick has made a character so far.  Feel free to make a character, I can rustle up Derrick and run a duel or two for you guys if you want to get a better feel for how magic battles play out.

I'm still here, life just got hectic. I don't think I own the books to make a wizard although the idea sounds appealing.

What are you missing?

[EDIT]
If it's Fantasy, I can copy the Template for you, if it's Magic, I can work with you to generate a spell list... it'll be shallower than what Derrick and VIVIT have access to but, it'll be broad enough for an arena fight.

Oh, wonderful! Where's the map, by the way? There doesn't seem to be anything on the Game Map page.

On the Map Page utilize the dropdown menu and chose Map B.

I don't see a "Map B" option.  What page should I start from; the IC thread? I get different results on the Game Map page depending on which thread I'm viewing when I click the "Game Map" link.

Aha.  I think I figured it out.  If so, the mmap should now appear for you under Map B.  Also, Map A should there as well.  (If I'm right, it was a Groups Permission thing, no one but me and Derrick can see all the Groups, so i had to add everyone to A and B.)

Re: General Chat
Not 100% that this is the right spot, but here goes:

I have an idea for a WWII pilots game, nothing bananas, just regular WWII.  I'm thinking about bombers because it's a crew, and I'm thinking early in the war, circa 40-41, British forces, based in Alexandria.  I'm thinking that most of the game, of the role-playing happens off-mission, in and around the base.  I'm anticipating that players could have a base character as well as a pilot/crew character, and I'm anticipating that there could be some mucking about in the desert or clandestine as well as flying, but that it's primarily a pilots in WWII game, not a cliffhangers game or a weird war game.

The plane I'm thinking of is the Bristol Blenheim because it's historically accurate, it's a multi-role bomber, and it has a crew of 3.

But for now, I want to test out some air combat, and I need people to do it! Stock 50 or 60 point pilots or crew, from the WWII book if you have it.

And...im using gurps 3rd.  Yes, yes.  I know.  Sorry.

There are two arenas at the moment, one... eh... kinda ongoing (The Wizards Duel) in which VIVT has fallen of the face the boards on, and the one Wing Commander seems to be gearing up towards.

If your interested in the Wizard Duel, check out the Wizard Battles OOC thread (link to a message in this game), make a wizard, post him in the Character Creation thread till it's approved (link to a message in this game), then post it in the Final Characters thread (link to a message in this game).

If you're interested in Wing COmmander's aerial combat idea, let him know.  (Personally I'm a bit too burned out from lack of sleep and working 10 hour shifts 6 days a week to think too deeply about aerial combat rules).

Likewise other arenas that got kinda started and then Players bailed out of that could easily be picked back up:  Knight and the Dragon; Monster Hunters vs Vamps.

Or if you have an idea or itch to see how some combat rules work, post your idea over in Scenario Brainstorming.

Hello RPoL!  No, this game is not dead I promise.  Just... really, really deserted right now.

Re: General Chat
So I've been one of the deserters, so sorry about that. :(   But I am back!

I totally understand if you guys would not want to continue the last scenario, it got quite complicated. If anyone is up for continuing nevertheless, I'm game. If someone wants to start something else, I'm game as well.

Re: General Chat
Hi everyone, I'm new to RPOL and have decided to have a go at this combat game.  I apologize in advance for being a newbie at the rules and stuff.  I assume you're all going to knock the stuffing out of me in no time flat, but I hope to show you at least a move or two before I hit the deck!

I am in the process of creating an Elfin Fighter with some kind of nifty sword fighting martial art style.  Sylvan Swordlore, perhaps.

At any rate, whoever thinks he's tough enough to take me on ... throw down your gauntlet and let's have at it!

Unless you're afraid to fight a ... girl !!!

Re: General Chat
Just a post in here to keep the forum alive.  I don't think the automated system deletes without a request... but you never know.

Also, I'm still here, just as last year, no time to run anything complex, but simple rules testing fights are right in my speed limit.
