The 2016 Muster Thread

Post  Ao on Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:17 pm

Hey there guys. It's been a year and a half since we embarked on our journey in Gaoler's Bend. And now, after many enemies slain, dungeons explored, and friends lost...

We find ourselves with a few fresh faces, and a whole lot of history.

I think it's about time we put together a new Muster thread, so that we can get to know each other a little more. Just a few personal details to put a face behind the character.

Without further ado...

First Name: Andy
From: Toronto, Canada

What RPG's (pnp) are you the most fond of?: D&D 1e, and D&D 5e. SWRPG: Fantasy Flight Games edition. Dungeon World.

Favorite PC/console games?: Morrowind, Mass Effect... Quest for Glory! Ashen Empires (mediocre indie Ultima Online ripoff - great memories). Ocarina of time (duh). Played WoW for 10 years.

What are you playing now?: Dragon Age Inquisition, Warframe.

Favorite drink: A good oatmeal stout.

Favorite book: The count of monte cristo.

Favorite fantasy setting: Middle earth.

Your last meal before summary execution: Lobster Roll.

Favorite adventure setting: Snowy forests and haunted castles.

Fantasy weapon of choice: Longsword and shield.

Favorite non-human race: Genasi

Dayjob: I'm the sales director of an organic food company.

Other nerdy hobbies: I collect boardgames, and love baseball.

Favorite movie: LOTR trilogy

Drives a: Honda CRV

Lightsaber color: Purple

Favorite D&D Monster: Mind Flayer

Kids?: Yeah! An awesome 2-year old daughter.

Ever played a Play-By-Post before?: Yep

What do you like about Play-By-Post?: Long-term, bite-sized bits of roleplaying day to day. An emphasis on roleplaying and narrative. Building a sense of community online.

What do you dislike about Play-By-Post?: Moves slowly. Life gets in the way of posting sometimes. Keeping enthusiasm going among strangers (but boy is it awesome when it happens!).

What would keep you playing Roots of Legend forever?: Patient players, who aren't afraid to tell me what they want more AND less of. Polite players that will participate on all fronts, and actively take responsibility for the rest of the group having fun. Communication about what's working and what's not. Epic moments.

Cheers
-Andy

Ever played a Play-By-Post before?: Yes

What do you like about Play-By-Post?: Being able to play from pretty much anywhere civilization exists, and, as a side effect, being able to play with all sorts of different people. Allows me to view things from other player's point of view. Can do some really well thought out and in depth role playing (without needing to act it out, too).

What do you dislike about Play-By-Post?: They can get very (almost unbearably) slow, and it is a lot of work to keep the momentum going, especially because people have different schedules and time zones.

What would keep you playing Roots of Legend forever?: Cool content and invested, excited players.
