Title: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on October 11, 2013, 11:29:18 PM
The Gaming board seems to be filled with just video games so far but I guess some tabletop stuff fits here as well.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here would be interested in putting together a group for a RPG played over the internet? (Using the technology provided by Google Hangouts / Skype and Roll20 (http://roll20.net/).)

I was thinking of a game set in the Star Wars universe as 1) it would be familiar to people, 2) I'd kinda like to try sci-fi (or space opera, whatever you consider it) instead of the usual fantasy and 3) there's this recent Star Wars RPG system called Edge of the Empire (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=232&enmi=Star%20Wars:%20Edge%20of%20the%20Empire), which seems rather interesting. It's set during the Original Trilogy, some time after the destruction of the first Death Star. The focus is mostly on the scum and villainy of the universe, the smugglers and the bounty hunters, the Han Solos and the Boba Fetts.

So what exactly am I looking for to make this happen?

Anyone interested?

I'm interested, but I likely won't have the time to do anything else, unfortunately... D:

I've always wanted to try something like this, but it would just depend on the scheduling because I've got a pretty tight schedule at the moment.

Same here.  My parents probably wouldn't even let me on the CPU that long if I did have time...

So, uh, was this going to be a thing?
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?

I should note that I am able to RP for a few hours at a time, but not while using a microphone.

Well, it could be. But judging by the responses I wasn't exactly too optimistic.

I never noticed this topic. If this becomes a thing, I'd like to give it a try.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: MaestroUGC on November 18, 2013, 04:53:15 AM
I'm still interested, so if this does happen I'm good to go.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on November 18, 2013, 09:57:58 AM
Oh, okay. Guess we can try to make this work then.

What time zones are you guys in and when would you generally be available to play? Other people who'd like to join can answer too.

I'm in the same time zone as maestro, and my best available times are Tuesdays(after 3) and Saturdays.

Pacific time after 10PM for before 4PM. Monday-Thursday

Sounds very interesting, and I have a mic!
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Olimar12345 on November 20, 2013, 02:37:30 AM
I also have a mic, btw :J
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: MaestroUGC on November 20, 2013, 04:54:26 AM
I don't have a mic, or any sort of experience talking for extended periods of time in a gaming capacity.

As it turns out, Saturday would probably be our best bet then.

Though there's the issue of trying to get people from three continents available at the same time. So that's UTC-8, UTC-6, UTC+2 and UTC+10. Anyone got a nice solution for this optimization problem? Personally I see two solutions, one which involves me waking up reeeally early in the morning and another where I stay awake all night.

Well you're hosting this thing, so I think it's only fair that we try and cater to you as much as possible. It just depends on what you want to do.

Would it be safe to assume we won't be doing this every saturday? Like say, only once a month or every other week?
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on November 20, 2013, 08:18:13 PM
Yeah, every once in a while when people have time. A couple of times a month maybe. Saturdays are somewhat tricky as I don't always know what other things I might have planned.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Winter on November 21, 2013, 12:38:13 AM
There should be some sort of mass text message so that we don't miss it. I'll at least gt the memo and then try to be here. Saturdays are perfect.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: MaestroUGC on November 21, 2013, 03:40:24 AM
Well, it seems we've got people to get this started, let's say we try to get one after Thanksgiving, Nov. 30? Or something.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on November 27, 2013, 10:06:50 PM
Sorry I haven't really been around, been busy with my thesis.

There seems to be quite a bit of stuff happening next weekend, so Nov. 30 most likely won't work. I might be able to find some time in the evening but I'm not sure.

How about the week later, Dec 7th?

Post by: MaestroUGC on December 04, 2013, 01:10:12 AM
This saturday is good for me, I believe.

If not I think most of us have some time off around the holidays so we could squeeze something in around then.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Olimar12345 on December 04, 2013, 04:51:37 AM
I'm off Saturday! :J
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?

Me too

I'm having trouble understanding this comment for some reason. Saturday is good?
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Olimar12345 on December 05, 2013, 10:38:31 PM
Yes, I am off from work, meaning that I am free. Sorry for the confusion :P
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on December 05, 2013, 11:28:51 PM
That's what I figured.

Well, the smiley kind of gave it away...  ::)
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: MaestroUGC on December 06, 2013, 12:43:52 AM
Well, I have to cover for somebody at work this saturday, depending on when this happenes I may or may not be able to make it.
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Winter on December 06, 2013, 07:18:55 AM
Still available :P
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Jamaha on December 06, 2013, 10:32:14 AM
Okay. Any specific time that would be good for you?
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Winter on December 07, 2013, 10:57:44 AM
4PM-6AM
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Olimar12345 on October 01, 2017, 04:26:19 AM
Major bump. Would anyone be interested in starting something like this up? I'm kind of bumbed out that this never really took off.

Magic missile!

Post by: BrainyLucario on October 01, 2017, 05:14:57 PM
Oh heck yeah. Something like that would be fun.  I hit the magic missle with a baseball bat
Title: Re: NSM roleplaying group?
Post by: Dude on October 01, 2017, 07:08:33 PM
My magic missiles aren't affected by other weapons.

Someone hasn't played D&D or Pathfinder.

I'm always up for an RPG campaign, but I suck at GMing, so I'm out for that.

I do too play DnD. I just don't follow all the rules.

Also worth noting he got killed today by randomly TRYING (he missed horribly) to stab arguably our most powerful player.

EDIT: Oh, and I’d be down for some RPG

Schedule permitting, I'm still interested.

Semi-annual bump. Still interested and wouldn't mind being a GM if needed.
