    Was the sword intelligent?

    That always complicates things... especially when it's smarter than the wielder.

    I'd be okay with that, though so far it doesn't seem like there's much interest in my tangent, which is perfectly cool.

    It was intelligent in a non-talking sort of way. So it kind of led us through some the quest when we tried side tracking

    Okay, this is kind of crazy, and needs backstory.

    Running my sylph rogue 8 / sorc 1, and the group has been in a huge bazaar city. We have a map that a sage was deciphering so that he could magically send us there; everyone in town wanted to buy (or steal) this map and we had a sequence of adventures dealing with these people. The entire city is built on trade, and their capital crime is stealing. Of course there's a huge black market that is still effective, but no one talks about it, and Lili (my rogue) is tapped into it. You just don't want to get caught.

    So the prior session, the resident bleeding heart dervish bard got shown three baby brass dragons for sale for a total of about 90K gold. (ha, yeah, right.) The dragons however let us know they wanted to escape; and i overheard the guards talking about the types of abuse they were laying down on these dragons. (A few had already died.) So of course the dervish is like, "WE MUST SAVE THEM," and I was like, "kool!" because it sounded like a fun job and because they're worth a lot of money or at least it would be cool to have some baby dragons in our group. Long story short, we managed to break into the complex and help the baby dragons escape last adventure and I think only one servant died (impressive for our group, we tend to leave a trail of destruction behind us a mile wide...and yes, hold that thought!) And we got out without otherwise people seeming to know who we were.

    So we're back at the sage's house, dragons sunning on the roof, and the resident priestess shows up to give us some friendly advice about how we're the prime suspects in this dragon theft ("what? that's horrible! who would do such a thing?"), which is being investigated and will need some days to finish, and it's strongly advised that we be out of town by then so that we're out of reach of any kind of justice that might try to impose itself. We're like, "Well, we don't know anything about this crime, so we're sure justice will be done, but we will consider what you've said, thank you so much." I checked in with my black market contacts and they said, "yes, you have a price on your head; and by the way, please don't come back here any more." lol. Easy come, easy go.

    So first the mage and I create a forged "confession letter" by the dead dragon trainer about how he felt he needed to free the creatures from their captivity, yada yada, and had it planted somewhere. Then we tell the sage to hurry up and send us to the location in the map. He casts the spell, we warp to this other place... and apparently the dimension door is two ways, because an army of efreet is waiting there and tells us, "Thank you for coming here and opening the portal, you can stay here and experience riches and adventure while we go through the portal and take what is ours," and they stream through the portal excitedly -- an entire army of fire genies -- and the portal shuts, stranding us (safely) in this new land.

    All I can think is that if the city was pissed at us for breaking their most important law and for the theft of the dragons, they're gonna be more pissed when the efreet trash their entire city and install themselves as the new rulers.

    (Again, "trail of destruction." I told you to remember that! At least they won't be coming after us. They have their hands full.)

    I'd love to do this sometime. Coincidentally I just watched a couple of people playing shadowrun on youtube and it seems like quite a lot of fun.

    I think I am more of a game master type though. Creating my own settings and see how others fare in it.

    Hmm, creating a game based on arcanum might be fun. *ponders*

    Ive done a lot of straight up RP though, based on game and fantasy worlds. Until I got sick of wading through the vast amount of lonely roleplayers whose sole purpose was to find substitute intimite relationships to counter the lack of their rl experiences.

    I love the idea of D & D but I'm not quick enough in thought or action to work out decent courses of action when I play it.

    Usually I just piss off everyone else because my decisions are crap. I wonder why I wasn't invited to my group's latest one.... I guess there isn't a connection.

    I try to avoid the imbalanced crazy nerds.
    We're just all more well-adjusted nerds.

    I'm currently playing a game with members of INTPf on the Roll20 site. It's fun, and the people are all probably the more "social" members of the site, we're laughing a lot and making jokes throughout the game. (Cooler, there are only two Americans; this is my first time playing RPGs with Europeans and Aussies.)

    I was rather bummed. There was a less social but really smart guy who wanted to run a Modern d20 setting with Cyberpunk in order to do a "play by post" game, so he and I hammered out my character over a few weeks, and it would have been a lot of fun. But only one other person worked on a character, and then he left the site a month ago, so... I have this character and nowhere to use her.

    Maybe if you just sit in for a few times until you get used to the kinds of options you might have?

    Also, there are certain classes that are easier to play than others, so you can take a more sit-back approach and let the more experienced players take charge until you get the hang of things?

    (Just brainstorming.)

    I shall be starting my first D&D game on Friday!

    I technically played once before. Summer 2013 there was a group of 5 of us (all of whom except the DM never played before). We made characters than played one day. No one could get their schedules to align so it fizzled. The DM was passive, flaky, and has always made me uneasy anyway. It was sad because I was getting into it and it had potential.

    This group is gonna be fun though. Over the weekend I ended up going food shopping with a good friend of mine and she was telling me about the D&D campagin she was in (they have met two times so far). It sounded really fun. I asked her if I could join when this one was done, and she said yes. The DM is her roommate and upon telling him he told me to just make a character (which I spent a solid 8 hours doing with them. Yay perfectionism!) and hop in since it was early and not everyone can meet every week. It's a huge group and it's two parties at this point but everyone has been enjoying it. I can not wait! I went to the store with some friends today and bought dice. Look at the little itty bitty baby d6's! They're so cute!
