Your Roleplays! Tell me about them!!
So, I'm sure a lot of you old-time Swaggers already know this about each other, but I'm still totally fresh and new and eager to hear about everyone else's games!! Where/why/how/with who do you RP? Or are some of you perhaps not even roleplayers at all, who just hang about for the artsy community?
To get the ball rolling- though I've done TONNES of online Roleplaying over the years (email based, forum based, real-time on Mu*s, you name it!!), I never really did any tabletop until... well, until I met the fellow who is now my husband. ;) Had a few rather madcap introductions to the world of DnD with our collective of mutual friends, most of them one-offs or campaigns that sort of fizzled and died after about three or four sessions (...and I was JUST getting super attached to that Warhammer character, too!!).
Then, early last year, husband dearest announced that he was sick of all these campaigns that just disappear, HE was going to GM a Star Wars RPG and he was going to be COMMITTED! Admittedly, I was very skeptical in the beginning, heh. First, I was not convinced that ANY of us had the focus to stick with anything for any length of time, and second... Star Wars? I mean I grew up with the original triolgy, sure. And was happy enough to watch Ewan McGregor dance around with a lightsaber in the new ones. But.... that was the extent of it, for me, and I just wasn't sure I could get really INTO it.
Hah, how wrong was I!!!
Nearly two years on, still with all original five players (and a few cameos along the way!), an absolute mass of plot twists and epic storylines behind us and still more ahead, and oh yeah, we sure are still going strong! Decisions the squad made literally OVER A YEAR AGO are still coming back to haunt us and bite us in the butt-- I've got to admit, I absolutely love the fact that the things we do in-game really DO have far-reaching consequences. It's awesome! I've also gotten a whole lot quicker at basic mental calculations. :P
Anyway, to spare this here post dragging on forever, I won't go too much into my own campaign plot just yet... because seriously, once I get started, I WILL GO ON FOREVER I SWEAR. But feel free to start sharing about yours!
