I'm feeling a little verklempt.

Talk amongst yourselves. I will give you a topic.

Savage Battletech is now both savage and Battletech.

Feel free to dot, but we'll keep this craziness in Recruitment for right now. ^_^

Hi there!

What's going on here?
The rules are simple:
1) You can post with any alias. No need to make a new alias because any one will work! Because,
2) Everyone has d6 in their stats. And their attributes. Your Strength is d6. Your Agility is d6. Your Shooting is d6, your lock-picking is d6, your Persuasion is d6.
For any check to do a thing, roll a d6. A 4 or higher means you succeeded! This scales because,
3) I'll require multiple successes to advance the plot.

Indeed, the only two caveats would be:
A) The same alias can't take more than one action in the same round.
1. But the Player can! Want to do another thing? Post with a different alias. ^_^
B) An alias can't post after its been killed. Oh yeah, there are ways to die.

I'll open up the Gameplay thread for dotting, but we'll be playing in Recruitment to get as many people as possible.
I post on Mondays Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. If we don't have enough success to advance the plot the morning of those days (CST) something bad happens, so feel free to shoot for overkill. ^_^

This is all about giving back. Even if I never got anything from you. =-)

This is my very, very first Discussion thread.

There are many like it, but mine is special. =)

Wait what? =)

I've had this idea for awhile.

Sometimes I'll be looking at the Recruitment thread, and I'll think "Why can't I just start playing in something right now?"

Well, now you can!

The idea: I have a module that I think I can take approximately infinite people through.

1) You can post with any alias. No need to make a new alias because any one will work! Because,

Ummmmm, any questions?

I think I'd like to do the interest check this week, and run the thing next week.
