  1. Mike says:

    I happen to do a lot of Play-by-Post gaming, and I happen to love playing on Tavern Keeper. There’s a lot of games and systems to choose from.

  2. Warren says:

    David, I agree with the advice on dating and gamer-shame.

    You have to be honest about the things that play a significant part in your life, if you’re with someone who (potentially) might be the future Mrs Distractionista

    It sounds like we had similar upbringings on the guilt/shame thing. I still fight the remnants but it is worthwhile. There are few things as attractive as confidence creativity and passion. (And it’s good for you)

    As Billy mentioned wrt his Vampire knowledge – people like people who have some fire about something. If nothing else, it keeps things interesting.

    That being said, as Daniel (I think) said, I wouldn’t lead with “Hi my name is David. Let me tell you about my half-orc rage-mage and the time he eviscerated dome bandits who were foolish enough to think that the might slay him.

  3. Katsushiro says:

    I gotta tell you, tho, that’s totally doing it for me.

  4. Thelastarchitect says:

    I also do a lot of Play-By-Post roleplaying, normally on the ‘Giant In The Playground Forums’. I’d be happy to run a play-by-post game for Pervy Kobolds.

  5. Warren says:

    Hmmmm…then let me tell you about this bard whose weapon was always a whip… Guys, Daniel and I are going to need a little privacy…

  6. Thelastarchitect says:

    To be clear I was referring to Fandifans not a party of literal pervy kobolds…

    That would be a very different game… 😛

  7. Foolsmask says:

    I will second Mike’s plug for Tavern Keeper. I’ve only been on it for a month but it has been fun. Fandible fans are welcome to look me up on there…same screen name. foolsmask

  8. Syren says:

    Murr, so much discussionating, I shall have to find a way to smuggle this GTRT onto my boat.

  9. AKBearmace says:

    What if we want to play as pervy kobolds though?!

  10. Mawdrigen says:

    So glad you liked the tea guys, we were glad to send it in thanks for your awesomeness! Don’t remember correcting your posture but pinky finger out is very important for the true British tea experience!

    Tea is serious business here 🙂

    My gf is a non-gamer, luckily she’s an understanding non-gamer!

  11. Mawdrigen says:

    Ps, no intention to twist off yer heads!

  12. Mike says:

    Hey Foolsmask.

    Feel free to look me up as well, I’m Dalgar on there.

  13. Hexeter says:

    Met my own Wife playing V:tM 15 years ago on mIRC. It is a time honoured tradition I can verify! Also in a similar vein (surely you see what I did there) we both have wildly different definitions of how we met/first declared our love/etc.

  14. Lucek says:

    Clearly what we need here is a way for us Fandible fans to get together and outside of these limited comet sections.

    That’ll do nicely.

    Still work in progress.

  15. Lucek says:

    Oh and await for the cease and desist. 😛

  16. Barsha Da Barsha says:

    I think Fandible can drop by with a few ‘how do you do’s’ for this thing 😀

  17. Syren says:

    I’ve never been a pick up kind of guy, I make rare friendships then sooner later get involved with my friends. Win or lose, and every damn relationship I’ve had has started with roleplaying, so I’ve never had any shame in talking about it. Most have lasted years, even the teenage foolishness, only a couple have ended badly. My most recent is about four years old now and still pretty damn strong. Though I know a lot of folks might be a little more wary about trying to transform a friendship like that, I dunno, can’t imagine getting so involved with a stranger.

    Meantothewizzile, I’ve been roleplaying forum style as Dan brought up for years. I only within the last three years actually moved to anything as fast as chat roleplaying. I can’t honestly suggest my forum for roleplaying right now as we are currently on a severe downtick over the past year, may see a resurgance one day, but I am super open to getting involved with any fandigame. Time to rush off to comment on that G+ page even though all the authorized browsers out here suck ass for it.
