Hey folks!

So my boy, Harold "Ulysses" Fury, is the primary dungeon master/MC of all sorts of table-top gaming nights, and I'm looking for folks to come play with him in pre-game. While RPGs are the main name of the game, there's also the potential for card games, board games, miniatures, and anything else in the table-top setting you might want to bring. Some early ideas I have are:

Munchkin
Dungeons and Dragons
Settlers of Catan
Betrayal at House On A Hill
Pathfinder
Shadowrun
Dresdenverse

I'm open to more suggestions! If you're interested, just drop your character(s), how you think they'd fit into the group, and maybe a character or style they enjoy playing. I'll start with Ulysses:

Ulysses gets his fix primarily through Dungeons and Dragons 3.0-3.5. His two most frequent characters are Jugger Stonewall, a Dwarven Monk heading towards the Dwarven Defender prestige class who specializes in soaking up damage and status effects, and Nathaniel Bloom, a human bard moving towards the Dragon Disciple prestige class, specializing in talking his way out of combat and buffing party members prior to his transformation.

As a dungeonmaster, Ulysses believes in fun first and foremost. He has a lot of experience and tends to adjust campaigns to the skill level and comfort zone of the over-all group as he goes to make sure they're staying engaged, challenged, and entertained. He likes to think of his parties as a safe place for new players and veterans alike to hang out and enjoy themselves, and makes a point of shutting down inter-group fights as quickly as possible.

I don't have anyone who would do this, but I'm interested in seeing how it turns out.

Shit man, drop me a system so that I have an idea how he'd run it or play it if someone else wants to DM and I'm down XD

There's two. The new Firefly RPG and the Serenity one.

To be honest, I'm not terribly familiar with Firefly, because I'm a bad nerd. Sounds interesting though, I'm up for it!

Even though my super gamer/nerd doesn't have a name yet, we've talked and I think they'd be interested in board games over tabletop, though I think they'll have a fleeting character that pops into the D&D campaign when he feels the desire. He might be a fanboy over Shadowrun though, so I'll see where that leads me. They hate games like Settlers, and Agricola but loves computer games and Magic: The Gathering particularly.

Also, a regular board games night with Betrayal at the House on the Hill. Please. It is one of my favourite games in real life. Other awesome group games might be card games like the D.C. deckbuilding card game, and such.

Does the group read comic books at all, on that subject? Or LARP? Not convinced the LARP community would be particularly great in Kingman, but you never know.

I also really, really need names for my kids.

You'd be surprised. There's an SCA Kingdom in Arizona with a barony right on top of Kingman.

If LARPing is a thing in Kingman, then Jack might be up for it. He's interested enough in Medieval history to be able to come up with some pretty bangin' armor.

While I don't think any of my characters would play tabletop games, I'd be down for one of them playing card or board games!

As I mentioned in chat a couple of days ago, Eri would totally be a gaming night regular. She'd be the one who comes up with all sorts of grand campaign ideas but ultimately never puts any of them into practice and just runs with the DM's plans. Her characters would probably be more cunning than brawny and have unconventional class/race combos. Though of course if LARPing is a thing she'd have to sit out.

Oh, and if you're looking for game systems to run, how about one of the Star Wars ones such as Edge of the Empire? That probably lies in a nice middle ground between DnD and Firefly on the nerdiness scale. Or maybe something like Warhammer to cover miniatures and wargames, assuming anyone in the club can afford it.

One of my characters, Matt, would definitely be down for something like this, considering that he's basically a huge nerd. In contrast to his appearance, he'd probably play strong and brutish Barbarian types optimized as much as the DM would let him.

One cool system is Hollow Earth Expedition. It's easy to learn and based on the pulp serials of the 20s and 30s. Think Indiana Jones.

I'll definitely look into both game suggestions!

Muse, Eri looks like a great fit, I'm sure Ulysses would love to see what she comes up with. If she's interested and LARPing becomes a thing, they may be able to incorporate her in a way that wouldn't be physically demanding so that she can still hang out and roleplay without having to worry about any complications?

Priv, Ulysses would be totally down with a big beefy barbarian type. He'd probably let him optimize as much as the rest of the party is comfortable with, just so everybody has their time to shine and the game stays even, since over-optimized characters tend to eat up the spotlight in campaigns. I'm sure they could work something out amicably though, he loves helping build characters people feel powerful playing.

I'm playing with the idea of Oswald having gotten into RPGs either when he was younger, or for nerd Cred but actually ended up liking it unironically, but in any case he's definitely going to be a Magic player, so there's that.

In OOC terms I can also confirm that Edge of the Empire is a really cool system, if a bit weird to learn if you're used to more common d20 or d100 based systems. Oh and the 40k RPG lines are pretty rad too.

With regards to Eri and LARPing, she might be able to contribute by making outfits for people. She's a cosplay fanatic, after all, and given her well-to-do background she'd have the money necessary for materials. Besides, someone needs to hang around on the sidelines and make sure drinks are readily available.
