Funny stuff. She would never make it as a doppleganger.


One thing I implemented in my children's game is fate points. So when they get themselves into trouble I allow them to use a fate point to get out of it as long as they provide dramatic reasoning (might be tough for even younger ones). Accompanying that is some "My Dad is a Gamer" advice about the error of their ways. They learn of consequences without being discouraged after they charge head long at the nearest basilisk. They also learn that there is no second chance after that fate point has been used, so it becomes a nice warning for them that they have gone too far.

I agree. What I'm wondering, though, is where's the old life? Lots of
previously-frequent posters seem to have vanished.

I would be one of the vanished species. . . I have to admit I've been sidetracked. Keeping three children going over summer break, an occasional wedding cake order, and an unfortunate side-treck into smocking (it's a type of embroidery) that has satisfied my artistic itch could be part of the blame.

However we still have our once a month game and I've done a lot of maps for it. I should check into posting some. . . .

I'm a Paramedic based just outside Edinburgh though my patch covers all of
Edinburgh, Lothians and sometimes the Borders (things have to be bad to
get sent down here).

Like many I have done my time in the military, Royal Artillery where
ultimately ended up in 148 Codo. Battery.

I live down in the Anglo-Scottish Border, an area steeped in some seriously
wild history.

Still play with the same face to face group I started out with over 25 years
ago.

Wow ... that must be some kind of record for playing with the same group. We are at 16 years now

Loved Edinburgh and the Scottish countryside

After viewing (and throwing my two cents into) the Kepli-inspired Dundjinni discussion on the Fantasy Grounds site, I decided to check back here, hoping against hope to find this very thread. It was quite a surprise to find it on top!

I may not have epocalypse beat but I can give him a good run for the money. My group is coming up on 27 years together. (Added a couple and lost a couple but the core is still there.)

Back to the thread topic. I'm an Environmental Engineer in Santa Clara , California.

My turn it seems then.

I currently work as the head of the mail order department for a chain of RPG and Wargaming stores. Previously I've worked as an officer in the merchant navy. (I hail from Denmark).

Hobbies include RPG and wargaming (of course), WoW (i'm addicted and I know it ) and going to the gym. Of course, whenever the friends come calling, all the other stuff gets pushed aside (especially since what they usually want to do is to play D&D).

That sounds like a dream job. You must get lots of inside information and freebies.

Welcome to DJ.

Well, I must say I'm not surprised to see all of the military folks here. I knew plenty in my ten years in the Air Force! Now I'm a disabled vet and homemaker, helping my husband through his Psychology doctorate.

Roleplaying and playing with my graphics programs are my hobbies.

I've been a civilian for 25 years, but I started playing D&D at Fort Campbell, KY in 1980. (My wife bought me the old blue box, basic set. Good Lord, what she started!) Back then even the character sheets were hand written, and all my D&D stuff could fir into 1 briefcase.

AND this is my 50th post, so I think I get promoted to HERO!

LOL!!! I remember those days!

Now every one of my characters has his or her own 3-ring view binder. Included are computer-generated character sheets, assorted support sheets (spells, powers, background stories, etc.), multiple color pics, pics of their home, work, and friends, character sheets of friends, and game notes. Each character has her own dice (gotta keep the karma separate) and dice bag, though I have only one dice box to roll them in.

I'm not sure I could play if I didn't have all my stuff!

Hmm, that sounds a bit excessive EE
Or is that something most of you do when you create a char?

Well, backstory, portrait, comp generated sheets are norm for me. I do have a set of dice for each character, and my jasper set for DMing. Not that it really helps, they all seem subject to my anomolous existence on the probability curve.

Good to see you around EE. It's been a while. Your work and tmaaas dabbling first convinced me to try DJ.
