Mmh. A lovely idea but I am unwilling to promise my presence. It will be high summer here, and I'll probably be either traveling or bumming in a tent somewhere with no shower or electricity again. If at work it'll probably be long hours well into the night. I already work 40h on the "quiet" time of the year, I mentally cringe at what summer will be like.
In all likelyhood I'll have no time to join.
Or like the previous time, I'll try and lose foot...
We'll see!
You guys enjoy and have fun though!!

We could always do... two RPGs? >.>
Big one in January and small one in July or something.

I'll jump into another one. Winter is what would work best for me.

The majority want the Winter dates and that is fair enough because if you had another in July everyone else has holidays and other commitments. It would be better to have as many as possible in together.  I will still happily  join in for January but could choose a character who could come in just now and again, to wreak havoc, depending on circumstances nearer the time.
Would be wonderful if some of the originals came back for awhile. ;D

@Raptori: Hmm, it may be a good exercise in working with being a discovery writer! Probably not but who knows. :P
Well yeah, that's what I thought last time out. I gave up after one post.  :P

The weird thing is that I really enjoyed D&D the two times I've played it. No idea why this was different.  :o

I stopped posting in the RPG because I felt my post's were not as good as everyone else's.

I really enjoyed the who's who topic and seeing everyone's character there made.

You forgot our parrot. ;)

I'm not going to ask how you remembered our parrot.  :P

Yay! Cool. We'll be glad to have you.

We don't talk about them, lol. ;)

Nora, I hope you have a fun time camping! We'll miss you, but man, that sounds fun.

Raptori, hmm. That is a weird case. Maybe it's because D&D is more "tangible?" I'm assuming you mean a physical game. Strange, but maybe this next one will be different. Maybe not!

Eclipse, your posts added so much to the fun. I wanted to see more of Bob! I always love your wacky creations.

I'm definitely a weird case.  :P

Yup, several of us sat around a table, with a map and dice and stuff. I don't really think the tangibility is an issue, though. I think it's more that everyone decided stuff together, working as a team, rather than everyone just doing whatever random stuff popped into their head, not 100% sure though.  :-\

I thought the point was to simply torture Jmack.

The second one flopped badly because there was a couple of posters who thought it was a serious writing exercise.   

Maybe someone could draw a map next time and actually create a vague outline of the world - what races, rulers, magic exists. Or is this too ambitious?

I'd be happy to help with that kind of thing. The question is how all that would work though, especially if you got to the point of creating dungeon maps...
