theophilus - September 19, 2005 03:52 AM (GMT)
How-do. I'm known as ambrose82 at Rancorpit and rpg.net. I switched names for anonymity...Dang!

Anyway, I'm an old hand at RPG. played back in the 80's and 90's when you actually had to meet in a group to play. If it's any dating mechanism, I still have the Teenage Mutant Nija Turtles game books in my garage. Along with many other time capsule worthy game books.

I love the Star Wars D6 system. It was my favorite and I've come back to RPGing in a PBP format through it. I still ahve all my old books, which is why I stick with it in PBP.

welcome Amb... Theophilus

Jedi Skyler - September 19, 2005 11:35 AM (GMT)
Welcome to EVERYBODY, new and not-so-new! Glad I'm not the only one who played back in the 80s & 90s who's coming back to it...

Don't feel TOO old; you aren't!

(otherwise I am too, and that just ain't happenin'!)

Orgaloth - September 19, 2005 03:09 PM (GMT)
I was a late bloomer to RPGs. I didn't start until I was 15, back in the 90's. And guess what? I'm from the Pit too... or am I?

It's alright! We're not that picky. (At least, not yet!) Maybe we'll grandfather in the first thirty or so people. Everyone else has to have been since they were ten, or pay $50 bucks to cover waiver fees... :lol:

SBRPG_HakDragon - September 19, 2005 06:20 PM (GMT)
I've been playing since the 80's also, long-time fan (and recent author of one). Nothing beats PnP RPG's for fun and good times.

Loved 'Classic' Star Wars d6, btw. It was one of those games that understood that a well-written game system could produce a mood, instead of trying to force a mood onto an existing game system. Never checked out the Rancor Pit myself, but I'm having a look over there now. Howdies to all!

netjedi - September 19, 2005 08:00 PM (GMT)
Yup got my start in 85. and even though I consider my self too old for this, just can't seem to stay away. :D

Orgaloth - September 20, 2005 04:18 AM (GMT)
I just worked out when I started. It was 1990, So only just in the 90's :D

Old is a state of mind. I will never arrive there, personally. There's never "too old;" there's just "hand me that Die Simplification chart because I have a bucket o' dice to roll here..."

See, we're a friendly bunch here!

Chabit Rane - December 25, 2005 02:17 AM (GMT)
Hi, I finally figured out how to get to the topics (lol). I too am from the Pit. Great to see everyone. :D

Jedi Skyler - January 3, 2006 05:26 PM (GMT)
That's alright! Welcome aboard!

Orgaloth - January 5, 2006 12:31 AM (GMT)
Anyone know what happened to Jamfke? i haven't seen him in over a month. :o

Jedi Skyler - January 7, 2006 01:02 PM (GMT)
I've seen him VERY occasionally on the Pit; all I know for sure is that he's on a hiatus of some sort. Don't have any details... sorry.

Orgaloth - January 8, 2006 12:44 AM (GMT)
Bugger. :huh:

AlexGrim - January 29, 2006 02:05 AM (GMT)
Howdy Ho!! I have been roleplaying for over 24years now. People talk trash about roleplayers, but I think it is because they have never really roleplayed. Some people might think I am too old to roleplay, like it is for kids or something, but it is in my blood after all these years and I can never turn my back on it. I have played and made many systems, I have a certian respect for D6 StarWars, I think it was brilliant in it's simplicity and I have ripped it off many times when making a system on the fly. I met Jamfke on rpg.net and thought he had totally disappeared, but to my surprise I was wrong.

Hellcat - February 2, 2006 08:50 AM (GMT)
<------- Avatar pretty.


Ok, enough sillyness out of me.

As far as RPGing goes, I think the attitude people take of it being for kids has a lot to do with how society treats it as a whole. One of the best examples I can think of is the comic strip Foxtrot in which the geeky little brother is a major roleplayer and his older siblings pretty much look down their noses at him about it, especially his sister. Pretty much it's potrayed in there as something for nerds, geeks and kids, something that most folks would grow out of once their in their teens. Over all society seems to teach us that as we get older we should give up a lot of our childhood pursuits. Some are ok to carry into our teens as long as we don't hang on to them for too long.

And yet there are the MMRPGs online such as City of Heroes that are fairly big hits and seem as likely to attract adults as kids. These games seem more likely to be accepted due to their anomisty. Just go on your computer and you can join folks from all over without anyone having to know anything about you. Videos games, a great many of them RPGs themselves without actually claiming to be such, meets roleplaying games. The internet itself has done a good deal for roleplaying as you can get a group together even if you can't find folks where you live. But at the same time it detracts a little because you don't actually get to see the folks your playing with and how they react.

One of the good things about RPGing that many in society may over look, caring only to see the paper a dice, is that it helps you to think creativly. You put yourself into the mind of your character, what do you do in a situation their put in. This can help in all walks of life, but too many don't see that.

Well said Hellcat, welcome aboard.

Chabit Rane - February 2, 2006 03:43 PM (GMT)
Yes Hellcat, that was very well said. Your points are valid IMO. Wish society as a whole would try and understand the RPG industry.

Well, I'm not actually new here, just don't post very often. Until last night I only posted twice, the first time when I first joined and the last time in December.

Jedi Skyler - February 3, 2006 02:12 PM (GMT)
