Let's get to know each other! What other organized play campaigns have you participated in?

I'll get the ball rolling:

I started playing Living Greyhawk in the last 3 years of the campaign and dabbled in some Living Arcanis. I organized and played Living Forgotten Realms for about 9 months when it first began before switching to Pathfinder Society Beta and now do PFS with some Legends of Arcanis thrown in.

How about the rest of you?

Sovereign Court Owner - Enchanted Grounds, President/Owner - Enchanted Grounds

I have only ever played in PFS.

However, as a game store owner I have been intimately involved in organizing and/or providing space for Living Greyhawk, Living Forgotten Realms, D&D Encounters, Legends of Arcanis, Savage Worlds, and myriad non-RPG organized play systems. I speak with all of my "leads" in those systems regularly, staying in touch with what players think. Obviously, I'm incredibly familiar with what people BUY, and the reasons for those purchases.

That's me, in a nutshell. Seeing as I'm sure you don't want me to bore you with the details, I won't.

Shadow Lodge 2/5

PFS is the only 'organized' campaign I've been in. I had always been a home-gamer before that... for most of my life (since 1978).

Grand Lodge 4/5 Venture-Agent, Nevada—Las Vegas aka kinevon

I started playing Living Greyhawk in 2008, when I found out that it wasn't what all the documents I had previously seen for Living City/Living Greyhawk had implied, that it was an almost pure LARP. Very badly written descriptions of LC/LG, really.

I also played LFR from its inception, and was one of the local organizers for LFR at a local FGS for some time.

I GMed, and played some, at the Dungeon Delves (when they were an encounter a week type of thing), and ran/played some of the D&D Encounters when it first started up.

I played a little bit of PFS during Season 0 (2 mods, one PC), and finally got involved more often when it started showing up more often at the monthly Game Day here. I have tried (with intermittent success) to do some organizing for PFS at the same local game shop I ran LFR at, but the attendance bounces too wildly for me to be able to run consistently.

If you're going to open the Pandora's box of non-OP stuff then allow me to add:

Shadowrun, Traveler, Eclipse Phase, Little Fears, Savage Worlds, Mutants & Masterminds and Reign

5/5 Venture-Agent, California—San Francisco Bay Area North & East aka Pirate Rob

I played OWBN (One World By Night - Vampire LARP) for about 4 years.

My first experience with tabletop organized play was Living Greyhawk.

I tried to start playing it both locally and at GenCon and was made to feel unwelcome and never did manage to play.

I ran several tables of the Arcana Evolved / Ptolus crossover official event at GenCon.

I also played about 4 adventures in the Xendrik Expeditions Campaign (as a gnoll) at conventions but didn't manage to get a local group to play.

I finally really got into organized play with LFR, that I played and judged extensively for about a year and a half.

Now I play/judge Pathfinder in 2 different locals. (California & Iowa+)

I was thinking about trying Arcanis, just because I found their initiative system intriguing but I haven't found it very welcoming so far.

I didn't open a Pandora's Box of non-OP stuff. That was Euan. The only things I mentioned were OP, misquoter-guy. d-:


Too darn many. :-)

I started playing RPGA stuff in 2001; back then, there were a *lot* of OP campaigns through the RPGA, and I played in many of them. Campaigns in which I've played include:

- Living Greyhawk (got very involved in our region during the second half of the campaign)
- Living City (after the ill-fated conversion to 3E)
- Ruins of Ravens Bluff (the even more ill-fated sequel to Living City)
- Living Force (still my all-time favorite OP campaign)
- Living Death (another great OP campaign)
- Living Arcanis
- Legends of Arcanis
- Living Dragonstar
- Living Spycraft
- Living Forgotten Realms (have edited and playtested a couple of modules, as well as playing fairly avidly)
- Legends of the Shining Jewel (was on the campaign staff for several years)
- Fellowship of the White Star
- Witch Hunter: Dark Providence
- Pathfinder Society

Silver Crusade

Only ones on my list would be Living Forgotten Realms (first game was with Painlord!), and then I fairly quickly moved on to Pathfinder Society (First game GM'd by VC Azmyth!). I had GM'd a homegame of 4th edition at home for about a year, dabbled in a few short campaigns, and I just liked the feel of pathfinder more.

Liberty's Edge 5/5

Living Dragonstar*
Living Greyhawk (played & GM’d sporadically between 2001 & 2004)
Living Force (played 3 times at Conventions only)
Living Death (played twice at Conventions only)
Living Spycraft (played once at Convention only)

*I helped playtest the Dragonstar OGL campaign setting for DnD 3.0 and naturally played in the first runs and slot 0’s of the Living Dragonstar season 1 modules. I then started running the scenarios at Origins of 2001 which allowed me to go to Origins, and then Gen Con on Fantasy Flight Games dime. After Gen Con that year, my enthusiasm for Living Dragonstar and my friendship with the then RPG line developer for Fantasy Flight Games gave me the opportunity to help coordinate the campaign with Stephen Mumford from Maryland. Stephen and I ran the campaign for 2 seasons before Fantasy Flight Games dropped support for Living Dragonstar and eventually dropped the entire Dragonstar line. During this time I wrote an entire 15,000 word chapter—a 3.0 psionic treatment for Dragonstar—in the Dragonstar Player’s Companion. My portion of the duties while coordinating Living Dragonstar included developing the plot for each season (a duty I shared with Stephen); development and editing of the modules (Stephen had Adobe Acrobat, so he did the layout and publishing of the modules); coordinating with local convention coordinators to get our modules on their docket; coordinating with the authors to write the modules and organizing our schedule to make sure the authors got our modules done in time for me to develop and edit them; liaising with the RPGA to get our modules on the big 3 conventions (Origins, Gen Con, and Winter Fantasy) docket, help get us GMs to run the tables of Living Dragonstar at the big 3 conventions and get our modules in their database for anyone to download and set up a game day; liaising with Fantasy Flight Games to make sure IP was preserved and the authors got paid, and write modules as needed.

Liberty's Edge

I was heavily involved in Living Greyhawk from 2005 onward. I wrote 6 adventures and edited another 15 to various degrees. I ran a weekly gamenight for about 18 months and assisted in a number of conventions.

I played a couple of sessions of Living Arcanis, but never got involved.

I played LFR, but was released on parole.

Played in an RPGA game back in what I think was maybe '84 at one of the Los Angeles area regional conventions. Not sure what this was...the adventure seemed poorly designed, characters were ongoing, and players were being chastised for replay when not allowed....I guess some things don't change.

Other organized gaming activities outside of RPGs: played historical miniature gaming with HMGS for about 10 years, ran a chess club and directed chess tournaments for a couple of years with USCF, played bridge for UCLA.

The Exchange 5/5

This feels to much like bragging for me.

I've played a lot, for a long time. Which makes me one of the old f**ts.

It's been fun, but feel free to treat me as a Noob... yeah, I'd like that.

It's all about the fun - let's game.

Thanks,

I know a lot of people didn’t like some of the moral quandaries in the season story arcs that at the end of some of the modules (Last Bastion specifically I think) that had them feel like they lost, even though they really won (just not on the galactic scale they’d hoped).

But yeah, I loved the space opera and the fact it wasn’t modern characters. It was standard DnD characters with blaster rifles and space ships.

I’ve had in the back of my head, since I’ve started getting back into freelance writing with some Open Design projects, of seeing what it would take to get a License from Fantasy Flight Games to do a Pathfinder treatment to Dragonstar, and then perhaps do a Kickstarter to make it happen.

My only real exposure to table top RPGs has been my year with PFS. Since he is name dropping I feel I should mention that Alexander_Damocles was my first GM.

Holy cow, really? Well, I hope I made a good impression! What scenario was it?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I was born and grew up in Puerto Rico, which at the time had zero presence of RPGs in general, so obviously even less than zero OP presence. When I discovered D&D, I had to get my parents to buy me the books anytime the went to the states for a conference or work in general. I must have been 14-15 when I discovered it, I believe it was just when AD&D 2nd edition came out. I may have well been one of the first running regular games on the island (for my friends). since I was the only one with books, I was the "defacto" GM, and it became what I enjoy most to this day. Played pretty much AD&D 2nd ed, 3.0, 3.5 and early days of 4ed. (other fringe RPGs played briefly: Star Wars, Rifts, Shadowrun)

Back on topic, PFS is my first organized play campaign. I have to say that so far I am kicking myself in the butt for not ever trying Organized Play in the past, because it is amazing so far. I do have to thank the powers that be for happening to live in Georgia, which has an amazing PFS scene. We have scheduled games somewhere in the Atlanta area EVERY weekend, at a different store each time. Some weekends both on Saturday AND Sunday. And to top it off, we have amazing organizers and GMs (thanks Kyle and Nani Pratt, Joe Caubo, Dan, and all other VLs im forgetting).

I have been playing PFS maybe... 3-4 months now. But in that time I am playing around 10 scenarios a month, plus 2 days running a homegame Kingmaker campaign. Also running a PbP Kingmaker and PbP First step series for newbies here on the paizo forums. Signed up as a Tier 1 GM for Gencon, and hope to GM as many games at Dragon*Con. Probably getting my first star soon and second after GenCon. I am a volunteer Store Liaison now as well, trying to do the best I can to give back to the community.

Like my wife says, whenever I fall in love with something I dont just jump into the deep end of the pool; I tie a stone around my neck, put on some lead shoes and grab a boulder first. :)

It was Frozen Fingers of Midnight. Just after Kublacon last year and since I have kept playing over the last year I think it is safe to say yes you did.

Right, I remember that scenario! I loved that one, had a great group for it and a really well written scenario. Glad I made a good impression, and glad to have you as part of BAPS! (We really need a secret handshake or something...)

That would rock. It's a pretty cool concept, and it's a shame that it's been allowed to lie fallow for the better part of a decade.


I've played forever, but only recently got into OP.

I played/DMed LFR for 3 years now. Ashes of Athas has also been a lot of fun.

I just recently moved into PF, as I couldn't figure out what my 19th LFR character should be.

Yeah I know. I just wasn't in any position financially to do something like that back then.

Now that I know about Kickstarter, I might start making a few phone calls within the next year.

Scarab Sages

My first D&D stuff was back in about '83-84, I think.
I got into the RPGA back when one still had to pay to become a member but did little with it.
I really got into playing Living Greyhawk home games in the 2000s and played at Cons and other game days through the end of the campaign.
I've been playing PFS since its inception in Season 0.

I've loved it a lot, and can't wait to go to my first PaizoCon next week.

Heroes of Rokugan: Champions of the Saphire Throne
Living Forgotton Realms
Heroes of Rokugan: Spirit of Bushido**
Legends of Arcanis

* I have written several modules for this campaign with maybe one more to come and have been their editor for the last year.

** Have written one double-round module for this campaign

From it all what I really love are the stories people take from the games. As an author, a GM, or a player, I absolutely love the spirit of camaraderie that come from all OP campaigns.

I have a few big projects on the horizon that I can't really speak of right now, but OP is really in my blood.

Keep us posted - I know I'd kick in some $$ to see it happen.

I had a ton of fun playing my elven ranger/wizard [Linznoor Kalastra] who opted out of the whole laser/blaster thing in favor of a more traditional elven weapon - a modern composite longbow [that eventually gained the lightning quality - just for those pesky robots].

Best recollection - having the fate of the galaxy be decided by the kobold mechanic tossing a coin.

Anyhow - my OP experience...

Dabbled in LC - didn't much care for the 'old boys club'

Living Greyhawk - eventually ended up serving on the Gran March triad

Virtual Seattle

Living DragonStar

Living Kalamar

Living Spycraft

Legacy of the Green Regent

Xendrick Tales [or whatever the Living Eberron game was called]

Delta Files [modern Call of Cthulhu, limited OP in the Virginia are]

LFR

ShadowRun Missions

PFS

that's it for me - for now

[edit - totally spaced the Blackmoor campaign. Add it to my list]


i started in organized play near the end of Year 2 of the Living Greyhawk campaign. it was my first experience with 3rd Edition D&D, and was meant to be my play outlet as i was always the DM in our home groups. that lasted about a month, when i became one of the regular gms in the group. in not too long a time i became the organizer for the game days.

for those who participated in LG and ever heard about the half-elf bard/marshal/cleric/ranger/outcast champion/ruather/duskblade/warmage/healer/etc etc who was the perfect sixth character at a randomly mustered table (and still an incredibly viable and useful build)... that was me.

during that time, i also did some dabbling in Shadowrun Missions and started up some Blackmoor the MMRPG tables at the local game days as well.

i ended up doing a bit of regional writing for LG as well as some writing for the Blackmoor OP campaign (shortly before WotC reigned in all of their licenses and that campaign died out). i also did some writing for a proposed organized play campaign for Green Ronin's Thieves' World, but, sadly, that never went anywhere.

i have participated as player, gm, and organizer in both Living Forgotten Realms and Pathfinder Society from the inception of both campaigns, as well as organizing for both Delve Nights and Encounters. for personal reasons, i ended up taking a hiatus of a year or two from organized play, but recently started organizing PFS events again, which has kicked into overdrive with my selection as Venture Lieutenant.

My organized play experience is limited to four years of Living Greyhawk, from 2004 to 2008. I wrote a couple of scenarios for the Principality of Naerie and nowadays host our final gazetteer in my blog. LG is pretty much the reason I'm here now. We took a look at LFR, concluded that neither the campaign nor the game system were really to our liking, so we switched to Pathfinder Society instead. Now, we are content.

I loved Dragonstar. I'd kick in money, too. Let us know if you decide to do it.

Living Greyhawk was my first organized play experience and I was in it from year one to the end

1-3 times:
heroes of rokugan
legacy of the green regent
shadowrun missions
blackmoor

more:
living dragonstar
living kalamar
whatever the living eberron campaign was called
witchhunter dark providence
lfr (left it for pfs)
paranet adventures (living dresden files)
pathfinder society

Grand Lodge

Let's see..

I started with The RPGA in the early 90's. Played lots of D&D in general.

From there I did:
Living City.
Living Force.
Living Kalamar.
Living Spycraft.
Living Death.
Living Grayhawk.
Living Forgotten Realms.
Dungeons and Dragons Encounters.
Pathfinder Society.

I was the Regional Director of MN, ND and SD for the RPGA for several years and a chat room host for TSR and WotC for 12 years (of which where I met my wife!) :). All of this was because of the RPGA and now Pathinder Society. So Organized play has been a thing of mine for almost 22-23 years now. I used to hit almost every convention in a ten state area and in all three states almost every game store or person that wanted to sell or have some kind of event. It was an amazing Journey! :)

Silver Crusade

Long answer:

I played home games of D&D and AD&D back before that newfangled 2nd edition stuff came along. Also played a couple of other RPGs, but all in home games with my high school friends (Star Frontiers, Star Wars, Shadowrun).

After high school, I stopped playing RPGs for 20ish years and just returned to the hobby last year. My first thought was "I wonder what D&D looks like now", so I ended up playing one session of Living Forgotten Realms and one session of D&D Encounters while trying to find a group to join.

Then I found two groups that wanted to play Pathfinder (which I had never heard of before that point), so I bought the Core Rulebook. The one group that was trying to start a regular campaign fell apart after two sessions, but the PFS group has been playing almost every week since October.

Short answer:

For organized play, I did one session of LFR and one session of D&D Encounters last year, before switching to PFS for enough sessions to hit levels 11 and 6 with my first two characters.

The thread title says organised play

So let's list my (non-RPG) organized play past as there isn't any RPG related prior to PFS

I started Con going >25 years ago thanks to Feudalherren - a Play-by-Post game that once a year got played face2face
If you took it seriously, then you had to play it for four days solid. I managed once to become king (win the game) Sunday lunch time - a feat nobody else ever achieved as far as I'm aware. 
I did play RPG even before that - but was never aware of an organized scene in Germany. 
The contacts there let to an invitation to the only ever F2F Starweb game in Germany. Privately organized with the game host arriving with computer equipment (well ahead of laptop days).
There I formed friendships with a group of Munich players taking part in the German Board Game Championships. A few years later I was asked to join a splinter group that had moved away across Germany. 
For a few years we managed to be the best German team. Did win the Championship at least twice and once the European version. 

It followed 12 years of no organized play as I had moved to the UK. 

Dave Harrison gave me a space at two slot zero games when I desperately looked to play and didn't have anyone local. 
Shortly afterwards he then convinced me to organize PFS at DragonCon. It seemed daunting at that time as it was my first experience playing RPG at a CON. 

And from there I just carried on. 

Silver Crusade

For me, I've only done PFS for Organized Play. I've home-grouped otherwise.

And at this point, with the network that PFS has, I think it will be the organized play group that I want to consistently game with. But never say never!

Hey Jukka, glad you enjoyed it. I think that worked as a pretty good collaboration with Sampo between my storyline and his breadth and deepening of the Naerie specific content. I think you were one of the playtesters for Swans of the Duntide, weren't you?

Sovereign Court

I've done a few. Living Greyhawk was the big one for like 5 years, where I actually got to play D&D instead of just reading books or being in like 4 sessions of a campaign and having it end. Did some Living Dragonstar, some Living Forgotten Realms where I made the only fun 4th edition character I ever played (8 int Wizard), one of two of whatever the 3.5 Eberron living campaign was. Mark of Heroes? Something like that I think. There were a lot that I wanted to try out that didn't work out for one reason or another.

Trying to do Pathfinder Society now but it's difficult....

I'm going to simultaneously date myself and admit how young I was when I started Organized Play, but here goes...

I cut my teeth on Living City right at conversion/launch of 3.0. My first scenario was played at an A-Kon in Dallas, TX before I joined up with WAND. I stuck with them for both Living City, the beginnings of Living Greyhawk, and the Living Arcanis Classic Scenario that introduced the campaign until they dissolved before moving to another weekly gaming group, Hall of Heroes.

I stuck with Living City at HoH until it came apart at the seams, otherwise going full Living Greyhawk and Living Arcanis. I dropped out of sight for awhile between 2005 and 2009 due to work/college, intermittently playing Legacy of the Green Regent, Living Greyhawk, and Living Arcanis at both gamedays and A-KON events.

I resurfaced with Organized Play in 2009 when I moved to Austin, TX. After trying both D&D 4th Edition RPGA play and PFS, I found the latter to be much more satisfying. And here I am.

Dark Archive 3/5

Oh, and I almost forgot: I dabbled in Living Kingdoms of Kalamar until I got tired of the extreme efforts taken to keep magic items out of play and characters from leveling at any reasonable pace.

Not counting way-too-much history with M:TG:

* LG - Started late 2006 as my first D&D3.5 experience. Eventually did some writing for Keoland, including their last special mission, and playtesting for some Sheldomar stuff. Organized a lot of events. (400+ hours of play time on my main PC over the last two years of the campaign. Multiple states visited for cons. Awesome folks met: too many to count.)

* LFR - From the start until the Great Dry Spell started around the same time that Encounter spun up and tried to kill it. Organized a lot, had some fun times, but the system was very Not! D&D! yet told stories and was bite sized.

* D&D Encounters: Two seasons had me declining to continue.

Hiatus from bad-story burnout. Even bad PFS seems to be better story than the average LFR that I was able to play. (Some notable exceptions).

* PFS - I'm taking a more relaxed approach to this campaign, so I so I just carry water bottles for my local venture officers... And occasionally slaughter most of a table's worth of PCs. Mixed between playing with the good international crew on PSOC, and in Albany, NY.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Society is my first venture into the world of Organized Play! I am really enjoying it!

Sovereign Court

I started playing with the Society just this past February in Copenhagen, specifically at the local game store days. Now I'm so hooked that I'm spreading the good word to Reykjavík, Iceland; where I'll be all summer.
