The Wall that Separates us

Postby BadgeAddict » Fri Aug 04, 2017 8:10 am

This is more a conversation starter/question to you folks over here.

I feel like, in several ways, there are two forums in one. The one side of this wall is Forum Games, the other side is the part that actually discusses the comic.

While I know that some of us climb our wall to visit and check in on you lot, It seems that there are far more of you on your side than us on our side. My question is why?

Are most of you just totally uninterested in forum games, do you lack in the time to properly commit to said games or do you just not even really know that our side of the wall exists at all and you continue in your lives completely oblivious to us?

My take is that most of the time I'm coming to the forums to get other's insight into the comic, or see what I missed that others have picked up.

I've never really understood forum games, so I never ventured over there. And when I say understood, I don't mean the point of them, I mean the rules of them. I'd probably think they were plenty of fun if I ventured over there, but just never have for whatever reason.

Simply a lack of time for me. I tend to lurk on the comics side and rarely post more than a couple times a year. I have no doubt it would be a lot of fun to join in over there. I just usually don't even have the energy to post anything. :zzz: Things have been slightly less hectic in my life recently which is why I've gotten a few posts done this year ha ha ha!

It depends on the game. Some of them have custom rules, others are based on existing game mechanics (eg, we have a couple running on D&D 5e currently).
games I gm
Surviving Castle Heterodyne, a Girl Genius themed game where the players are sparks.

Fallout: Settlers, co-GM with Badge, set in the Fallout world as a vault of dwellers emerge into a changed world.

The Sundered Way, my 5e forum campaign.


games I play
Darfel Kroven, Human Cleric of Tempus in Theis2's "Shipwrecked!".

Splits Focus in Thinkslogically's Lair of the Mountain King

Korga in Dlover's Hunters of Letrua.

Laughs Creepily in "Goblin Adventurer's League".

Korbrok, the dwarven telekinetic blacksmith berserker in Quarg's "An Adventure in Aldra".

Korrik Tallpine, a halfling monk with a shady past in Thinks' "The Wandering Archipelago".

I cannot comit to a time drain loke games.
While I have plenty of times to come online, I'm here for the comic and the discussions about it.
And some off-topic discussions (politics,...).
No, not many games for me.
I did enjoy some, but mostly I played ones where I could post something once in a while without blocking the table from going forward.

There are a bunch of casual "drop-in" games, though I think it's fair to say that the games area has swung much more to dnd and lengthy RP games over the last year or two. Still, if there were players looking to play / run more casual games, there would almost certainly be interest enough in the forum to get something running.

It's funny how games ebbs and flows between type of games.

I've spent some time in games, but changes in my life have taken up the time I once spent there.

If anything I say offends you I am sorry. It is likely late and I am tired, or I'm upset and I am not thinking straight, and though I sincerely wish I could, I can't express myself in such a way that helps you be less of a crybaby.

Spoiler: show
Seriously though, I'm sorry if I said something a reasonable person would find offensive.
