THE YIPS, GROWLS AND HOWLING OF ADAM DICKSTEIN
Good Luck!!Game Long and Prosper!
Star Trek is a feeling that just keeps coming back.
I get the same feeling every year about this time...good luck with your task!
The needs of the many rpg systems outweigh the needs of the one. :)Yeah, the thought of other systems always becomes a powerful lure every quarter it seems. Its that road not yet travelled (or at least, not that much travelled recently). I was partial to FASA's old Trek rpg. Heck, I'm partial to any old rpg I still have in a box somewhere. Good luck on your galaxy quest for a system. . .Ciao!GW
For me Star Trek is almost the road most travelled...just not recently. ;)I look forward to getting back to it since I haven't run a good long campaign of it in a while and I want to write up a few of our sessions as blog entries.
Star Trek is always something I wanted to play. Way back in teh day Dragon ran an article on GMing tips for FASA's Star Trek and I was all inspired. Perhaps someday...
Great article! Issue #180 I think. I have it and reread it every time I'm going to run a game.
Hmm. Where/when might you run?
Don't tell me the issue#! Thanks, now I'll want to look it up and take the chance at being inspired! :)Ciao!
@Fred - Not sure yet. Usually in New York or New Jersey with my old NJ group + 1 (that one being one of my NYC buddies).Do we know each other Fred? Your name sounds familiar but I'm always better with faces.
I started with FASA, did some Prime Directive, fell in love with LUG, learned to hate Decipher and then to appreciate it.I have done a little with Where No Man Has Gone Before and would love something else to use...
>Do we know each other Fred?Sure, I played in your Traveller: Alpha Dawn game a couple of times. Hope all's well with you.
I thought so!Man that game could've gone better. lolNot one of my prouder moments as a GM I can tell you. I was just...I don't know...off somehow and couldn't get 'on' for the life of me. I took a three month GMing break (except for the occasional one-shot here and there) and then returned to the table with a totally kick ass Mutants & Masterminds campaign (9-12 players, 1 or 2 times a month). It rocked.I'd love to have you join in on a Star Trek game if you're free.Not I just have to put one together...
I dunno, you've said that before, but I enjoyed those two sessions just fine; I bailed out of gaming for awhile for personal reasons which had exactly zero to do with your GMing. I still miss Hichio!I'd tentatively love to join the Trek game, but I don't know Jersey, and doubt I could reliably make it there. Manhattan, on the other hand...(Cafe 28's a good venue, for example; I've played NY Red Box there.)
Actually there are two places we play at in Manhattan. One is the Compleat Strategist and the other is a secret, undisclosed location not far away, lol. Email me and we'll discuss it. barkingalien AT gee mail DOT com.If anyone else is interested please let me know! Wee! Potential new group.Also, I want to correct a previously erroneous piece of information. The Dragon Magazine article, "A Final Frontier of Your Own", By John Terra, is in issue #150.
