So You'd Like to Run a Game?

Postby Kate » Fri Nov 01, 2013 2:02 pm

So you'd like to run an involved forum game involving RP, dice, and complicated mechanics...and that is fantastic! There are a lot of people here who love playing those games, and you'll make the forum very happy.

We're not about to say that you can't run games while others are going on, but in our experience, when many involved games are going on at the same time, people who enjoy RPing sign up for all of them at once...and then end up only really playing one or two. Games tend to be more successful when there's not a flood of them at once and in my limited GMing experience, the more active players you have, the more fun it will be for you too.

To that end, we decided to start this thread. Do you have a game to run? That is wonderful! I'll probably join it and I am already excited for it. Let us know in this thread that you want to run a game, and a working title. Ideally, we're trying to keep only one Mafia-style game and about 2 other involved games going at a time, and this is a good way to stake out your place in line for running the next one. If you have an expected time-frame or date for when you want to get started, that would help too!

Signups:
skooma - Murder in Space (Signups Now!)
MattTheCzar - World Wide Web War I (Signups Now!)

In Progress:
LaoWai - Escape II
MatthewNotch - Patient Zero

Upcoming games:
JackRoad - August 2016
Ericthebearjew
MattTheCzar
AveryGlendale



Mafia:

May take some time but still in line:

Mafia:
Gash - Superhero
Tablo - During the summer holidays sometime

Other:
AboveGL
Drexyl Nox - Forests of Tauria
Gash - Social Justice Warriors
SlayerGoddess & maybe sunglasses - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Nudge & JamishT - Survivor


Please let us know if any of the information here is incorrect or incomplete; singing up to run a game is not an obligation to follow through if your plans change. This is just so we're all on the same page. Have a great day!

Yeah, that seems good Kate. And a good idea, I'd like to add. This was no one is stepping on anyone's toes. Additionally, this is very helpful for peeps who aren't on IRC much. It does seem like a good bit of planning happens there.

And yeah, I don't have a title yet or even a working title. IDK maybe something like Dagon's Reach? Or does that sound a bit pathetic? And it's gonna probs be like a month before I even have the dynamics typed up. They're in my head (the best place for them to be) but it's hard for me to plan things at the mo.

I want to create a game with the setting and combat system similar to Fallout 1/2/Tactics. At the moment, I haven't given it enough thought (and I still need to reply to sunny) and there's a little too much maths involved.

Yes, I am making a mafia game. It's going to be a 1950's Alien invasion.

Someone should do a mascot-themed mafia game. Dibs on the Trix Rabbit.

I call dibs for a second Superhero mafia game later in the far future. Not now, because I'm busy with Cult, which is compromised of 600% awesome and 455% win and requires two mods to keep it in check, but yea. Just wanted to call dibs in case someone steals it.

I am going to run the TCS War as soon as I finish applying to college. (tentative date: uhh...)

And unless she no longer wants to, Kate will be my GM.

I've got a tumblr where I write about stuff, some of which is also on this site. I've also got a few videos you might wanna check out.

OK, OK... I know you were probably waiting for this moment since August 2nd. Didn't we have a really good time in San Corleone? With the Carpeltonellis sneaking around, the Cops trying to find a way to keep the city under control, the Nudginis dying extremely fast and the townies just... being there, I guess.

Well, your prayers have been answered!

Carp and Nudge, also known as CarNudge, are returning. With a Mafia game. A transgressive, innovative, political Mafia game. After we finish cracking codes and fighting the artificial intelligence that's taken over the planet (probably) in Dasha and GG's game (or maybe destroying some supervillain's lair in Gash's game?), that is.

Brace yourselves. The election is coming.

DAMMIT GASH. You stole our thunder. We called Dibs on the IRC BEFORE you. Let the records show that CarNudge will be GMing our game BEFORE Gash.

Don't despair. The very next Mafia is coming, I'm GMing solo and the rumors are true, it's western-themed, with some elements of steampunk thrown in.

Sign-ups are probably starting next weekend, and depending on how that goes, the idea is to start the game sometime around mid-November. But if it's cool with everyone, I can be flexible and push the start date a little so everyone who wants to play has no excuse of being too involved in Cult, or Enclosure, or anything else.

Just don't keep us waiting too long. TCS can't not have Mafia for extended periods of time. Things get crazy when such things happen.
