In retrospect, I suppose that wasn't the best "introductory" post, but I've been listening to the podcasts for so long now, I guess I didn't feel the need to introduce myself. My mistake.

To clarify, I'm not suggesting that characters be killed for being rude. I was startled by this particular podcast, though. Towards the end when guards surrounded the building where the characters discovered recent murders, demanding the characters surrender their weapons, the response from some was essentially "Shut up, I'm reading!". Right then and there, I felt the characters were getting off way too easily and perhaps that they are starting to feel safe, too safe. :)

But of course, like I said, this comes down to whatever gaming style the GM and the group prefers and if everyone is happy with it, it matters not one bit what anyone else thinks.

All IMO. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers...

As for my game of choice, yes, it is D&D. I'm an old git by now and have come full circle, it seems. I started with D&D (the red box) and AD&D back in the day, went through my "realistic" phase and tormented myself and my players with Chivalry & Sorcery and various other systems and homebrew rules, and now I'm back with D&D. I think the 4th Edition is an excellent update, even if this obviously isn't shared by everyone or indeed anyone here. Insert your snide comments here. ;)


No feathers ruffled :) Everyone is entitled to opinion. In games like DnD I have no issue killing characters as that is the nature of the game. I always felt the RM was a little above just slaughtering the party every couple of fights and I like to keep things rolling forward.

I also hate it when the party dynamic changes every 5 minutes. It doesn't happen in novels so it shouldn't happen in gaming. We are here to tell a story right? :)

Welcome to the forums. We are all very accepting of different play styles and the like round here. We even have folks who love 4e getting on with folks who love ADnD and one red box (of which there is one on my shelf) :)

I think you will like the next planned project ;)

Well.... what if the character has an undiagnosed case of schizophrenia?

Hey don't forget purple box! I've got the purple box sitting somewhere in my room too (complete with the free copy of the, by now legendary, B2: Keep on the Borderlands, which came with it).

Admitedly I got it froma mate when I was 13 and he'd had it for a few years (picked it up ata car boot sale somewhere) but it is still mine :P.

You probably dont remember cause it was yonks ago you did this, but finaly caught up, and I have to say, its rather surreal being talked about, though not by name, on the mighty RPGMP3 dot com!
I somewhat feel as if this fourth wall has been broken down, smashed and crushed in a implosion of doom.

You get used to it, then when one of them actually does mention your name it starts all over again. :D

If you ever tire of being obliquely referred to in the audios, just do what I do: Insult the hell out of everyone, preferably in comic strip form. :twisted: I do that all the time, and my name has not come up since. :D

To be honest I've never been a fan of goggles's characters in the past, but I nearly cried when he exposed the reason for Malik's exile. That was absolutely beautiful, and the line was brilliantly delivered. Hats off to you goggles.
