Star Wars D20
So I haven't posted here in a while. Figgered I'd at least put up a little post real quick, see if anyone's reading this stuff. I am hoping to start up a Star Wars D20 campaign in the next few months. I don't really have anything planned except that I want to GM a D20 Star Wars game. I'm looking for 2-3 people to join in and hopefully keep schedules vaguely open after I get it up and running. I've got two people right now who have expressed interest, so I figure a party of 4-5 would be ideal. I'm not yet decided on an era. One group member has been pressing me to do something that takes place between the events of A New Hope and Empire. I'd prefer to go with a time where not that much is going on, canonically. Or I may just end up doing a campaign that's non-canon. Like, for example, Luke didn't make the shot into the Death Star and go from there. Or something.

So if you or someone you know may be interested in being part of a Star Wars campaign, leave me a note here or on my personal LJ. This likely won't start for a few months, since I'm hoping to move before the end of the year, and that's going to take up a lot of my time until i actually move. So we'll see how that goes. And once I'm settled, I can concentrate on this.

GURPS
So I've been thinking about beginning to write a plot for a campaign I want to run. I've been wanting to be a DM/GM/whatever term you want for a couple of years now, ever since my first experiences with D&D. And I've recently...ahem..."acquired" copies of the GURPS books, and I was wondering if anyone out there (all two of you) have played using the GURPS system and its potential adavntages and disadvantages to the D20 system. I like that it only uses 3d6 instead of seven individually numbered dice, but I don't know much beyond that. I suppose reading the sourcebooks will help also, but I was just curious what other people thought of the system. Don't get me wrong, I like D20 and its insane amount of potential depth, but I'm just looking at other possible options in case one would work out better for a plot than others. BTW, I have no idea what plot I'm going to be trying to write. All of my previous ideas have stemmed from already-created universes, and I've been encouraged to really strike out on my own and write my own plot instead of trying to fit a story into an already established world.

About me
Your moderator is going to post a little bit of info about himself. And he most likely won't be writing in the third person after the conclusion of this sentence.

Name: Sam
Age: 22
Location: Sacramento (duh), CA
Sex: Yes, please (also, male)
Occupation: none at the moment, looking to pursue a career in piano tuning or guitar repair or some other odd but interesting field
Relationship status: Single and tired of it...looking for that special nerd girl.

Hobbies/activities besides role playing I enjoy: reading, writing, listening to/playing/composing music, playing various video games (except FPS...blech), coming up with wild and crazy ideas for movies and never acting on them because I don't know enough other people to actually get one started.

RPG experience: As far as tabletop games go, I was introduced to D&D a couple of years ago, 3.5 Edition specifically, and I enjoy working with it. I also played the system based around d10 dice (I forget what it's called) briefly. So far, I've been in two D20 campaigns and one of the other type (Unicode or something like that, I forget). Sadly, our groups have never been able to keep a campaign going for very long.

Characters: Well, since I've been in all of three campaigns (and one was about a zombie apocalypse in the present day, meaning I played myself), I can outline the characters I've made. My first ever character was a badass barbarian who could kick a hell of a lot of ass. My proudest moment as him was being hit by a flaming barrel of oil, catching on fire, then raging, running up the ramp the barrels were being tossed down, and killing a large roomfull of kobolds. I've also made a cleric, and that was fun, and in a medieval superheroes-type of campaign, I played a multiclass Devoted Defender/Dwarven Defender double prestige class. It was pretty sweet.

I'm always looking for new campaigns to start or join. I haven't had any RPG experiences in several weeks, or months, I forget which. But I feel deprived. So anyone who's thinking about starting a D20 campaign, let me know. I'm also going to start developing my own campaign soon, so anyone interested in joining, I'm looking for somewhere between four and six players.

I suppose that's enough for now. I encourage anyone else interested in joining (or who have already joined) to post info similar to what I've posted.

INITIAL POSTING!
Welcome, one and all (just me for the moment, obviously) to the Sacramento Role Player's Community! I am your moderator (for the moment, as I have never done this before) and I welcome anyone and everyone who has a love with role playing, video games, or general geekiness (such as myself). Feel free to post any ideas for RPGs, characters you find to be awesome, or if you're looking for a group or some new members for a dying campaign, feel free to come here. The role playing community I've belonged to for a while just up and died earlier this week, so I figured why not make one of my own? So here I stand, proud.

My only rule is that this community is here for fun. Don't flame each other because you think someone's character sucks or they don't live in the Sacramento region. We're all friends here. Let's have some fun and roll some dice! Hell, maybe I'll even try to start an online campaign going. Who's interested?

Current Mood: accomplished
