As far as I know, Tanindara and Infithe are the only people in this game that I am currently in other games with.

Ildrulf Versalain:
Not as smart as Tanindara will feel when I remove her from a couple of my games, on the grounds that, based on what she just said, she is a totally imaginary player with a real character...

gasp!  That's blatant discrimination!  You...you...realist!  I knew I was going to have a hard time finding a job in this town, where imaginary people are regularly relegated to second, third, or even totally nonexistant class citizens, but I never thought I'd run into it here. sob

Orken Badaxe:
I gather all of you play in a lot of games together? The only other game I played here for any time, died...


That's really too bad.  It takes a while to find good groups like this one.

I'm GMing 4 games here.
1 = 9 months
1 = 18 months
1 > 2 years.

The fourth is at 6 months.

I'm playing in several other games, several of which have been going for > 18 months.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
It starts getting a bit self perpetuating when you only advertise your games in the games you already play in as you know those players are good role players and are not going to up sticks and leave after the first few weeks or during a slow down....

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I'll rub salt in your wounds too, Orken, but only to show I'm not biased against elves (even if some of them are perverted voyeurs)...

I'm currently running 7 games:

1 is over 6 years old (and was started at another site, before I came to RPoL)*.
1 is 5 1/2 years old.
2 are about 2 1/2 years old.
1 is 2 years old.
1 is a year old.
1 is about 10 months old.

(*  By coincidence, I just killed off an elf in this game, and killed the only dwarf last year.)

However, for every game I currently have running, there is another which died in the first few months.  So, about a 50% failure rate.  :(

I always advertise in games I'm a member of first.  To me it makes sense - if I was starting a tabletop game, I would ask friends first, before I started recruiting random strangers.

I only play in two games, this one, and another one which is 1 year old.

perverted voyeur?  are you referring to me?  careful, or I'll have to demand satisfaction!

Now THAT'S a duel!

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
No it aint! No body picks on me elf but me! *Grrrrr!*

I GM’d a game on another site but I have decided to bring it to an end after a year and half due to personal issues in life that got the better of me. After a month vacation who knows what I’ll do. All six players that joined stuck with it, enjoyed it, and don‘t want me too. But I’d rather do that than let the fun had be tainted and see it fade out when my attention and desire is elsewhere.

I have to call it a success as they actually went some where and accomplished things.

I've done a few multi-year games online. I've been a GM so long and much I think I suck as a player now. :o) I've been lucky with a lower failure (30% or 2 of 6) rate but I haven't tried to do quite as many games as you Ildrulf.

I am not sure longevity is a great measure of success by itself. Not every game idea needs a ten year run... :o) But it is a nice bit. I think my longest game went call it four years.

I went looking for inspiration regarding an April Fool’s Day prank to play on y’all but instead stumbled on the museum of the best… O.O It’ll do.

The spaghetti harvest is pretty good. But then agian it represents what I hate about the day and finding trustworthy news of the unusual sort...

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Yep... Quiet for one week. Y'all went and threw a party somewhere and left me, the dwarf, here all alone didn't you? I didn't even get to dance with Briacat or toss jello at Infithe.

I'll have you know that my feelings are officially hurt. I'm hiding all alone under a rock and crying my eyes out for feeling unloved.

It's your fault too... :oP

Coming back in leaning on Lendor's shoulder and laughing

Oh...Orken?

quickly brushing confetti out of hair pst! Lendor!  Hide the champaign!

I don't know what you're talking about, Orken.  Nobody's having any parties without you, and if we did, I certainly wouldn't be dancing with anybody.  Even if I'm forced to admit that Quanfinigon is remarkably better at the waltz than I would have expected, and, Lendor, I had a wonderful time, call me, 'k?

Um, where was I?  Oh, right - you're just being paranoid again.  Those smiley-face codes were in absolutely no way our secret means of planning out an elaborate week-long gala and leaving you and only you out of it.  I'm sure Infithe will back me up here when Ildrulf is done throwing up in the bushes and she has him cleaned up a bit.  O;-)

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
Signs of the Conspiracy 2

1) The mistress and Infithe grew quiet at the same time. This occurred when the dwarf was tossed in a hole and nobody talked to him… They are in cahoots!

2) Ildrulf is held subservient to Infithe by means of chemicals baked into fresh bread. Side effects leave him ill for health insurance claims and out of the house in the bushes…

3) Quanfinigon Waltz … Nobody does that Waltz in this day and age and he always posts at night somewhere in the world and he talks funny too! He’s a traveling vampire!

4) Infithe… Infernal? Starts looking for a demonology web page to research her. I mean we all know she is evil!

5) Tanindara spent time with Lendor (the quiet.) People always disappear when he is quiet. She took out a hit on somebody and wants a call when it is done! But who?

Or maybe he is her “Kincaid - Hawaii” thing? O.O

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I see... that's all incredibly fascinating, old chap.

*whispers* Somebody keep him talking, while I subdue him using those handy, new unarmed combat rules.  Then, once he's tied up, we can call for the people at the unnyfay armfay to come and collect him.

The dwarf leaps into action! “I‘ll not let you imprison me on the funny farm to milk my jokes for cash!”

*Holds his hands up and makes a cross with his index fingers to keep Quan and the Infithe Spawn (Ildrulf) at bay…*

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
* stands behind the indignant dwarf with a bottle of champagne held by the neck *

who to hit with this crappy Asti?  The dwarf so he'll shut up or the the interlopers from that other game who keep taking up the DM's attentions.

Amused by the plethora of targets, Gwyd merely pops the cork and pours the champagne over the dwarf's head...

"It's really not a waste, I swear!  It's just an Asti and he REALLY needed a bath!  Now, if it were a Roederer or a Paul Roger... ONLY THEN would I drink it!"

"Yes, definitely needed a bath."

Holds forth a stein of Kneecracker Ale for the dwarf and takes one for himself.

"To celebrate the occassion of your yearly bath!  Prosit!"

Takes a long draught.

Hmm... first there was Lendor and my sister, and now Gwydion and Orken...

Are all elves obsessed with thinking about other people bathing?
