I think you all know what this is for!

But I guess I will start it off with a little about me, since I asked about each of you.

I started rp-ing when I got my first home computer 25 years ago. It was chat rooms and freeform and I had no clue what I was doing was roleplaying. About two years after I had a group of friends in high school who started me on White Wolf system: Vampire, Werewolf/Changing Breeds, Mage, and Changeling were what we played often. Same group also did DnD 3rd off and on but I never had the ambition to learn all the rules, numbers, dice, and maths. Usually I would just let someone make my character sheet for me.

Met my husband through that group and eventually, we moved to another city, having to find new groups to play with (and some old ones who moved to the same city, luckily enough!) We've had fits and starts due to life: two children, work, mental health, etc but we always drift back. I have tried ADnD, 5th ed, Pathfinder (a LOT of this one,) Cyberpunk, Exalted, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Villians and Vigilantes, Warhammer, everything White Wolf, and probably a few I have forgotten. I'll play anything but I truly enjoy games with less rolling, less railroading, and more character interaction. When I run games, I usually have broad sandbox settings, an end goal with multiple ways to achieve it, and reward characters, roleplaying, and creativity. It is much more entertaining for me to watch you guys squirm and come up with a plan that I can fit into the story than it is to sit around and wait for you to stumble on a pre-made track. But that doesn't mean I leave you stumped forever either...

If I were a flavor, I would be avocado.

Hello everyone, I will be playing Milo: An ex-mage with a dark past and a kill list!

Though he is not quick to trust, Milo will happily work with anyone: So don't worry about having to deal with a lone wolf character :D

One thing Milo hates more than anything in the world is traitors, and so you can rely on him in a jam, even if he isn't ready to rely on you...

I'm thinking hard and developing a (hopefully) intriguing and layered personality for you all to experience once we get in the game :)

By the way, GM are we waiting on players to start? When we do start, are you going to set the scene or should we just jump in as soon as a thread opens up?

Hello! Pleasure to meet you! I'll be playing Lyndis, an elven lass with a checkered past. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and start creating a fun story. :D

I'm still trying to sort out if I want any more rituals than what I already have. But, Lyndis is pretty much together.

Greetings all,
I'll be playing  Schnnarrp (when the Oracle graces me with a name change).

Schnnarrp is a three foot tall stone monkey.   To the eyes of most biological races, he appears as an animated statue of a monkey ... but he is of a race of stone elemental monkeys from ... well, another dimension from this one, because Schnarrrrp doesn't recognise this place.

Everyone is so open! No pretense at all. Just cards straight on the table.

If I were a flavor, I'd be lime sorbet.

Oh! I notice you mentioned your location. That's probably a good idea, so that everyone has an idea of posting schedules. Just in case someone is waiting on a reply, we can look at the clock and go, "Oh. They're probably asleep!"

I'm on the east coast of US.

nah, I work shift, and my hours (working, posting, life in general) are all over the place.
Don't count on my posting at any particular hours.
