    Default RPGs, anyone?

    Just wanted to hear if there are any fellow role-players around here. I'd think there might be quite a few us here.

    EDIT: It's a MULTI-CHOICE!

    Are we talking about the vidya, or tabletop?

    I miss playing D&D with my family. We always talk about getting it going again.

    I've been role-playing almost 20 years now. And I'm just 24 years old.

    I play D&D 4th edition once a week. About 6 of us play the pen and paper game - I'm the DM at present. We play by conference voice call chatting over Skype (and some free internet tools to simulate dice rolls etc).

    I used to love video game RPGs. (Nice Baldur's Gate 2 avatar, by the way.) However, I finally got to the point where I couldn't afford spending 50+ hours on a video game, so I had to stop playing them.

    Love console and PC RPGs, but I indulge rarely because I know how nutso I can get.

    I'm an ex-MMORPGer. (EverQuest and World of Warcraft)

    Never tried any other varieties.

    I play D&D when there's no EON RPG groups available (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eon_(role-playing_game)

    What kinds of players are you? Power gamers? Character builders? The silent, boring and unimaginative player?

    I for one learn all I can about the system and exploit whatever weaknesses I can find.
    In the EON game, for an instance... The game is the most realistic fantasy RPG out there, when it comes to fighting. Love it. A peasant can actually defeat a knight in full armor if he's smart enough... Usually, peasants aren't... But there's a possibility! Not like those mindless level-based games. A player in EON can actually build just about anything(within reason), if he's got the skills for it. I tend to outsmart our INTJ DM. I don't fall for his attempts to kill our group, I pick my fights carefully. Usually I pick a character that isn't entirely fighting-based. My chars are often more diplomatic and inventive. Kind of like a spy. It's a highly social game with skills in everything from seduction to dancing to persuading and interrogating. Love it.

    I like Dungeons & Dragons, too... The new version is kind of nice... I especially like the new class "warlord".

    Yes, I was recently playing a warlord.. just a couple of weeks for fun in a connecting adventure before I took over as DM.

    I play all kinds of characters.. I'm a not a powergamer, but I like to find a viable build with something interesting. Really, I like exploring, pulling off cool stunts and being the centre of combat attention.

    That sounds nice. I'm not really annoyingly much like a traditional whiny power-gamer according to either of my DM's, I just tend to make a lot with what I have. I'm a lot into the exploration thing, too. And character development. I always interact a lot socially and build up huge amounts of background story for my chars. Less so in D&D, though... I find that game OK but it's just "sustenance" compared to EON

    Warlord IS very nice, though... My former favorites are Fighter => Weaponmaster (greatsword) and any kind of multiclass Warpriest. People tend to protect/heal you if you're either the "tank" or some kind of fat-ass-giver-of-buffs.
