Wow I am new here after just getting informed about the site from a potential recruit and first thing I learn about is Recess?
I am very pleased.
Then I come and start investigating after applying to run games and I see Piratecat?
I am impressed.
Is this the same Piratecat from EN World? I have long been a fan if so pal.
Anyway, about me since this is my inrto / advertising / recess post:
Hi I am Alex! Front man, GM and all around Pain in the @%##%& guy from Bad Wrong Fun
I am a rpg fanatic. I started playing in the early 80ies, played every version of D&D, the old Marvel Superheroes game, CoC, Dresden Files and Mouseguard.
I mostly GM these days as I get a kick out of doing neat stuff and amazing people with my half baked schemes.
I just moved back to NYC 3 months ago now (wow time flies) and was looking to run a group through my heartbreaker version of D&D which incorporates all the good from each edition minus all the crap.
Friends of mine instead introduced me to RuneQuest and I was hooked. I saw how a system that doesn’t rely on levels could have a high degree of synergy with a West Marches open sandbox style of play. Then I thought about Dawn of Worlds which I haven’t used in awhile and realized I was on to something. When I started advertising my “cool” idea people then turned me on to Microscope. I instantly saw synergy there again.
So now I am recruiting for a campaign that will involve 20 players. Yes I know I said 20 - pray for me. Anyhow I have also applied to host games at Recess as it will be a great recruiting tool and I will get to demo some of the neat stuff about my upcoming game.I am going to to also speak to some people about showing off some bits and pieces of a game that will be released in 2012.
If that all flies ... like I hope it should then I will see you guys at Recess!
