The unfrtunate thing about that list is most itsms are very similar to each other. I know a person who rolls on that constantly due to an item (different from dnd game).

Sorry about my limited interaction in the games I'm in. I've had some long shifts and they have been increasingly early, so much of my spare time have turned to sleep earlier than usual. Had to get up at 3 am today just to barely make it in time >.<

Incoming transmission ...

I noticed that starting new games nowadays is not easy. 
The more complex the rules are, the less people bother.

So I'm proposing a simple game:

Borglins.

Each player controls a robot goblin. It happens via posts. 
It's a (self)discovery game, and it is supposed to be lighthearted.
I'm not posting rules, you will have to figure them out, if needed.
So feel free to goof around with the actions!

To join, you have to create your own robot, which is easy and fun! (Link below)
It has to be vaguely humanoid, though (can be goblin shaped too, but not necessarily).
Transmission ended.
Search for "Build a Robot 3.0". It's a NewsGrounds flash app, but can be reached via many sites, for example: http://www.supergames.com/build-a-robot-30.html. Once you are satisfied with your creation, just make a screenshot of it, and post. :D

The background music is obnoxious a bit, but you can turn it off. ;)

I do not plan on drawing in this game, but if you have the patience to fiddle around with your borglin, feel free to do so!

I'm gladly accepting any opinions and remarks, regardless if you plan to play or not!
(I can also make you a borglin if you don't want to draw yourself, but no complaints then! :D)

For fluff here is the background story of the borglin on the picture above:

Note that you don't have to make a story for your borglin just yet, that is what the game will be about! You can make some vague guidelines, though. :)
aka LooksAndSmiles, or L&S for short.

Some other past characters of mine:

Balar Forgebellows, a thoroughly unlikable dwarf bard.

I think I love Krozk! There is always a place for the big dumb brute in the party and he sounds like a ton of fun :D

Slight heads up since I've seen you guys talk about it here before- I've made a global sticky concerning the annoying bug that has afflicted some of us. I'd appreciate checking out the sticky if you had the issue before :)

I think the most important thing to trying to fix this will be to collect a list of all posts that were affected by it and see if there's some kind of connection, but who knows- Might find something out of the info regardless.

I filled in the form. It is hard to remember exactly when it happens, but when it does it seems to happen for a shortish period to all posts I make before going away.

Yeah, I've also been thinking there seem to be "periods" where it's more active..? We'll have to see, though. Thanks for filling in :)

This is awesome - I've managed to end up with all three of my forum d&d characters unconscious at the same time :lol:

Clearly, I am not making good decisions for them this week...

At least one of those was just bad rolls. So Lady Luck is working against you at least in part.
My game:
Hunters of Letrua; Character list
Also Player / Monster stats, skill lists.

My characters:
Tugs Tails, the goblin that was sort of a trapper and wears a bear's tail at his neck, for some reason - Lair of the Mountain King (Run by Thinks)
Alex Sparo, A city boy, poor of sight, who has learned to manipulate people and make the most of what he, and others, have - Trinity Isles (Run by Mort)
Mehriv Turajin, a Noble Dragonborn Sorcerer sent from his clan because he wasn't dragony enough. - The Wandering Archipelago (Run by Thinks)

Sundered way was 5 bad rolls in a row granted 3 of those were a save against the same effect :p

Don't know exactly what is happening in the Sundered Way but I suspect that Tess is in way more trouble than Ves! A this moment anyhow.

Yup, I suspect so too. Jax is one long rest down from everyone else and needs his beauty sleep :lol:

I'll be honest, if Jax hadn't gone back for a sleep then, I was going to start giving him levels of Exhaustion :lol:

Just a fair warning that I will take a short trip to japan tomorrow and I have no idea how my internet access will be during my stay there for about a week. I'm sure you will hardly notice the difference though as I am already quite horrendous at posting but now I have a good excuse for once! :lol:

Hi, Tea! Long time no see.
Thanks to Arch Lich Burns for the avatar, and Mnementh for the mustache.

Been quietish. Transferred to a 4-year college (yay!), but since I'm coming in halfway I don't have this school's particular prerequisites so this semester has been a lot of jumping through hoops and placement tests. On the other hand, I finally feel like I'm moving in a direction that I can turn into a career. Let's see....otherwise....I keep trying to come up with ideas I can keep hold of long enough to develop a workable campaign and try my hand at this dungeon master thing but I also get distracted easily.
