RPGs

Just in case you don't already know, RPG stands for Role Playing Game.

The games I play most often now are Dungeons & Dragons and Vampire: The Masquerade. Sam runs several different campaigns for us, and my friends and I take turns running different games when he is busy.

My favorite Vampire character right now is a Malkavian. She's lots of fun to play, although playing Malks is often more difficult than playing characters of other clans (because you have to keep up the insanity).

My favorite Dungeons & Dragons character right now is a katzen (cat person) rogue. I also play a dwarven fighter, and a gnome sorcerer/cleric.

RPGs that I've played:

  • Dungeons & Dragons: 2nd, 3rd, and 3.5 Editions
  • Vampire: The Masquerade
  • Mage: The Ascension
  • Pendragon
  • Star Wars d20
  • Toon
  • PsiKids (An RPG that Sambear created)

RPGs that I want to try:

  • Werewolf: The Apocalypse
  • Changeling: The Dreaming
  • Amber Diceless
  • Faded Suns

Here is my description of a good DM (Dungeon Master, or person who runs the game) is this:

  • Someone who doesn't make the enemy too hard or to easy too kill (which can be very difficult).
  • Even if the DM likes a player, s/he doesn't make that person's character more powerful than the other characters.
  • Runs games that involve more than killing.
  • Isn't sexist/racist/etc.
  • Doesn't make you play stereotypical characters: All druids are female and fluffy-bunny wimps. All characters that are good fighters are male and rather dumb… you get the picture.
  • Doesn't have some very high-level character swoop down and save your party of 1st level characters from every fight (or something similar).
  • Listens to the players, and lets them actually be in control of their character (including the personality of the character).
