Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

Used to play religiously (FASA, made up our own GURPS) and thinking about starting up again. Back then we said that online gaming wasn't 'real' gaming since you didn't know where to deliver the pizza to. Still makes sense to me.

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

I played the FASA STRPG, still the best IMO, as they didn't have to worry with the next episode ruining everything that they'd put in their sourcebooks, but then TNG came along and things went south fast.

Tried the Decipher and Last Unicorn versions, but they just didn't gel well with me.

Currently playing Traveller, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, and Doctor Who.

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

I always wanted to try one of them, but I never had anyone near me who was interested in either Star Trek or tabletop RPGs so I never got a chance haha

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

Played FASA Trek a couple of times. Thought it was great. I was disappointed when they pulled the license just before the Final Frontier Sourcebook was supposed to come out.

Every now and then (most Fridays with off weeks) the gang and I get together for "World of Darkness" (currently on "The God Machine"), "Aberrant", "Exulted", "Werewolf the Forsaken", "Shadowrun", or "Cyberpunk" to name a few.

I play D&D 3.5 every week. I have never played a Star Trek RPG though.

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

I've got all the LUG and Decipher RPG books, and a good chunk of the FASA ones, but have never played. :-\

Always wanted to play RPGs when I was a kid, but never found anyone to teach me. Everyone assumed that because I was such a nerd, I already knew all the ins and outs and wanted me to DM/GM for them. The look of shock on their faces when I said I didn't even know how to play and would like to learn was so utterly disheartening, almost as much as when they said they didn't "have time to teach a noob."

Last year, though, a friend of mine got me into playing the old Star Wars d6 game with a group of his friends. I had a blast, although a rather disorganized GM and an extreme lack of focus sort of doomed the group after a while.

Tried D&D Encounters at the local game shop, but even though it's designed as an introduction for noobs, it was mainly experienced players who assumed I knew everything even though I said up front I didn't, and it wasn't the right atmosphere. If I want to do nothing but combat, I'll play HeroClix or an online game, thanks.

I want some storytelling, character-building, fun interaction out of a table-top RPG, and so far, I haven't found any local groups that are really compatible with that mindset yet.

Would love to do something with the FATE system, like The Dresden Files RPG, but again, getting a group together has been proving insanely difficult.

In junior high and high school, I played mainly AD&D, but also did get into briefly, Gamma World, Star Frontiers, Twilight 2000, and Traveler 2300\2300AD. But AD&D was the mainstay. This would have been the mid to late 1980s.

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

I'm an old-skool pencil & paper gamer. Played FASA Star Trek for years, and owned the LUG and Decipher versions. For a while I ran ST games at conventions here in the UK. Also ran/played West End's D6 Star Wars and the Victory Games James Bond 007 system, SJG's Toon and GURPS, RTG's Mekton and Palladium's Robotech and Recon RPGs. My longest campaign was a decade-long ongoing storyline from the first edition days of R.Talsorian's Cyberpunk.

I still own an f-ton of RPG stuff, but sadly I find it hard to make time to play these days... And I miss it!

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

FFG's narrative system being used in Star Wars Edge of the Empire, Star Wars Age of Rebellion, and in a slightly different version in Warhammer, would make a great game system for a Star Trek game.

I have no idea what the status of the Trek RPG license is now, though.

Re: Anyone here play REAL RPGs face to face with paper and dice?

I wouldn't mind starting a trekbbs RPG thread and GM it. The character sheets would be easy, set it as who ever wants to joins first post. The minimum daily situation post would move the story, but dice rolling would be difficult.
