Paper and Dice Gamers

     This is a place for those who remember the glory days of role play before the new fangled electronic games got so popular. Dice and a pencil and paper and your imagination was all that was needed.

Griffin is not in a bird book. NPC who formed Aviary is a bird lover. Griffin is mythological, not an actual bird.

it totally is too... its part bird, part cat (a smaller part) and is primarily a flying creature who uses talons and beak and wings to do everything. the 'paws and tail' on back are just decorative. its so a valid bird. :)

Yes, the books I write.

Hate to be a bummer but a gryffon is not a bird.

sounds pretty cool.

'your books' meaning the ones you have, or the ones you wrote?

forum is just like chat, only with really really long 'lag' time between responses. :)

imma be a gryffon, thats my character, symbol, etc. lol

Forum is old school, but as I've never done it, it sounds cool. Plus it negates aligning times, and lets me take more time in writing out events and y'all to react.

As for dice rolling, Fate has a free downloadable app. I'll try to set up the page and see if the app can be applied there. If not, we'll have to operate on trusting one another as we roll from our homes and report results.

Plot: based on my books, but in short, in 1877, an alien element exploded in Railroad City, MO. Many people acquired superhuman powers. There was a team of heroes, the Guild of Honor. Steam tech became more advanced.

1893...the Golden Age is long over. America is empire. The military subjugated the Rail. Superhumans are cannon fodder, on the run. One person, the owner of the periodical Second World, helped send young paranormals to safety around the world.

Now, he recruits those same refugees into an Aviary. Taking the name of birds, each character is now a Second World employee, travelling the globe, doing stories. But really, they search for evidence of past alien affairs on Earth. 

Indiana Jones, Victorian style, with minor superpowers.

a multi-person gmail chat works fine too,  unless it is too hard to get people on at the same time, then a forum-style would probably work better, though much much slower.

William J. Jackson where would one download the Fate Accelerated ruleset?

I'll *try* understanding that I am old school and like face-to-face gaming.  What exactly do you have in mind? 

Comment by William J. Jackson on March 23, 2018 at 2:21pm


1. Sounds good.

2. Are you in?
