Seeking A Game To Play / Apocalypse World oneshot?

I'd have to find a spot on campus that's neither coffeeshop loud nor, you know, a library. Furthermore I have a semisevere speech/language impediment (cluttering) which makes me slightly incoherent - not incomprehensible but irritatingly stammery (I'm told). But if nobody has a problem with that, then yeah, in theory I'm down for Skype.

How about you, Eli?

Seeking A Game To Play / Apocalypse World oneshot?

 Hi, I'm Mike and I run Apocalypse World. I've had an itch to run a one-shot since a recent convention. Just curious if Skype voice chat is off the table? It's my go to utility to play over.

Seeking A Game To Play / Apocalypse World oneshot?

My friend and I are great fans of Apocalypse World and are looking to play in a oneshot, preferably over IRC or a similar medium. Friday evening, so far, is the best time for us, but schedules are totally mutable. I've heard infrno's a prominent haven for PbtA mavens. Is anybody interested, either as a player or as an MC?

I'm seeking an Urban Shadows game.  I have played other Apocalypse powered games in the past.

 

Anyone got room for one more player?

Seeking Players For A Game / Superhero Oneshot: The Lazarus Mirror

Glad to hear there's some interest! ICONS is heavily FATE-inspired, kind of a cross between FATE and TSR's FASERIP system, but at heart mechanically it's a value from 1-10 plus a D6 vs my value plus a D6. Supers! Is a dice pool system, but the interesting thing (to me) is that any power can be attack or defense if you describe it narratively. The before-revision first editions of both games are pay what you want on RPGNow.com. That won't tell you everything about the new versions of the games, but it'll provide flavour.

Seeking Players For A Game / Superhero Oneshot: The Lazarus Mirror

A new reality show is testing wanna-be heroes, but you aren't a contestant...no, you've been hired to play a villain. Maybe you are a reformed villain who needs work on the outside, maybe you're an ex-hero who needs the money, maybe you're a hero who doesn't trust the villains they've hired, maybe you're the contestant who got booted and who the show says has now joined the villain team.

And this week they're doing a museum heist. It's a little weird because they gave you the blueprints of the museum they created for this, because the director and sound man are standing just over there, and because the friend of the Argent Alembic is dressed like a security guard right over there, but at least you know that (a) heroes are going to show up and (b) they've assured you that none of this mystic-looking stuff is real, though you have to behave like it is.

System to be determined. I'd prefer ICONS or Supers! Revised Edition (both easy to teach in a couple of minutes), but I can do M&M 3E/DCA or Marvel Heroic Roleplaying if that's what people would prefer.

I haven't indicated a time or date because I'm trying to gauge interest. I'm currently unemployed so I'm often flexible.

Game Systems Discussion / The Quiet Year

When I've played, we've spent the tokens to set projects back (which is kind of a house-rule thing) or start more detrimental/self-interested projects, including to destroy or change other stuff. I believe that's what you're supposed to spend those tokens to do-- start projects like that?

Game Systems Discussion / The Quiet Year

It's purpose is as a barometer for the amount of discontent you feel is in the community (but it also  easily represents a player's frustration in the game). There is no mechanical effect to back it up, so it's the equivalent of drawing a frowny face a bunch of times in chat :( :( :(.

The purpose of it could be to draw the players into working to a comprise, but I haven't seen that happening, and the only way to discuss the issues in the community are to do it on someone's turn meaning that the other two options of discovery and starting a new project become the oppurtunity cost.

The only way I can see Contempt be meaningful in The Quiet Year is for the player to agree to only take it when they see a significant problem in the community and the other players agree that they will recognize it and react to it in the "Yes, and" manner people use in improv.

Short of that it becomes someone whining usslessly on one side and everyone else ignoring them on the other, and that's pointless.

Thanks for posting this. I look forward to reading your notes.

 

BTW, is contempt something in the game, or in the shadowy depths of your heart?

Game Systems Discussion / The Quiet Year

Last night I played 'The Quiet Year' for the first time.  Our intent was to play the game as a lead in to an Apocalypse World campaign that will be starting next week, to define the world and challenges.  It worked relatively well.

Good Stuff:

The cards are great for things to consider about the community and what kind of things happen.  Having a common recent history built for the holding was good as well.  Some great threats and fronts emerged that will be fun, for me as MC, to play with in the campaign.  My future players had no problem screwing their future selves over, which I love about them.  The map we built is actually pretty cool.  

Not so Good Stuff:

Contempt.  The part of the rules mechanic doens't work that great.  It seems to not work great, at least not with the group I was with.  Also, Per the rules, discussion during any path other than 'Have a Discussion' is discouraged/forbidden, but we also didn't do well at that, which for this game was fine, since we were building a place for the PCs to live in in the future. 

 

The notes from the game.

Seeking A Game To Play / Looking to play Monsterhearts

Hi, all! I'm new here on Infrno and looking to join a game of Monsterhearts! I've never played before, but I'm fairly familiar through reading the rulebook and listening to actual plays. General RP experience-wise, I play in a weekly Pathfinder campaign and have played more improv-oriented games like Fiasco and Maid RPG in the past.

A one-shot Monsterhearts game might be ideal to try the system out, but I'm open to campaign play as well. My preference would be to play on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evening, EST.

Hi, everyone!

Also, you can find an Infrno community on G+ that is pretty quiet but if you post there, I'll see it sooner than I would on this forum.  Introduce yourself there!

General / The Chat Room

We've had some sadness with our chat room over the past year, and the transition to a new one is being worked on.  However, I'm gonna try and hang out in the room for a while each day when I can.  So if you're new, or want to just chat, please, hang out in there and someone will pop by to hang.  

Say hi!  The note stays there a while.

General / want to learn how to play

Hi. What kind of games do you like? That'd really be a big help, as then I'd know which way to point you.

 

Or, better yet, what kind of stories do you enjoy? Since this is really more of a medium for telling stories than playing games, that'd really help me figure out what direction to point you in.
