Welcome fellow gamer dad! Oh man, you are in for a treat with that book, and the community around this game that is growing by the day.

Hi everyone! 

Just ordered the book after doing some research and cant wait to get it! Missed the kick starter due to life (small children) but want to get back into role playing.  Played 1rs and 2nd ed back in the day.  I am in a black hole of gaming it seems so Ill either have to form my own group or find something on line.



 

Hi Kradonus and welcome to the forums! It's a great game, a great setting and I'm sure you'll have loads of fun with it. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Introduction Thread

Hi All,
My name is Bob, Or Sausage as my close longtime friends call me. I'm 50 years old and have been playing since I was around 9 (41, years, Started with Original and within a year moved on to D&D Basic). I played with all my friends that I grew up with, finally getting with Jeff in our teens. I've played many different systems, even working on some combat systems that I eventually dumped due to complexity (think Rolemaster and double it).
I ran some Call of Cthulhu, introducing Jeff to it, and clearly, it made an impression LOL. I joined back up with Jeff and the group for a couple years, towards the end of the playtesting and writing for Gary G.(RIP). When I heard Jeff came out with his own system, I was very happy, After reading it through found that it was what I have looked for in a system. Adding in the fact that the world was only "mostly" developed, gave me the ability to make some of my own areas, places that players would "discover". I've created a Module that I'm running at TotalCon 32 called Raiders!!! and hope some of you coming to the con will come play with me.
I love the latest Edition, it's a great piece of work, Congratz Jeff...

Bob

Unfortunately I've never been to GaryCon... so that would be a no. My wife would litterally cut my stuff off if I told her, "Hey Honey I wanted to take an extended weekend and travel to play Roleplaying games". She would NOT understand...

Only been to Local (New england) Cons and games...

Re: Introduction Thread

We called him Bobby Sausage, because when we would game back in the 80s he used to order a large sausage pizza and eat the whole thing all by himself -- washed down with a 2-liter bottle of Jolt Cola, of course. The good old days! It's true, Bob introduced me to the Call of Cthulhu RPG back in the day, and even though we played it briefly before going back to AD&D, it piqued my interest and got me into HPL. Welcome aboard, Sausage! ;)
