So who likes to role play?

Any of you like to sit down and have yourself a nice, rousing, game of D&D?

I enjoy it, but I find it super hard to find people i would enjoy playing with. So many are uptight people who are all anal about the rules and spend all their time making super powerful characters... or they are the creepy kind that want their character to make out with mine... among other gross stuff.

What i need is a cool group that can sit down and have a good fun game without... the unsociables ruining... a social game.


...been wanting to play a Vampires game for a long time.... QQ

I tried it a few times but never really got into it.

A bunch of my friends play though, I've sat and been the "reference" guy, I just read the manual when someone is a bit hazy on stats or something.

DireKitty - Agreed, finding not creepy people is incredibly hard, my friends seem ok though.

I was supposed to play tonight. I only like playing with people who I can joke around with. If the DM (or other players) have a stick up their butt, I'm out.

I'll only play the first and second editions of D&D. While the other editions are more lax with the rules, and more easy going in terms of classes, they just strike me as a bit lazy. I've had some great adventures though, back when I used to play more often. My DM always got "sick" when we were to play, so I just stopped asking to play. I got sick of the excuses.

This!
I've never actually played D&D, but it's on my to-do list...

My friends and I sit down and play on the weekends, we also podcast our sessions, they are pretty funny.

We've been playing D&D for a while now, also really into Warhammer Fantasy as well as Shadowrun.

I played shadowrun... i always decided to live in the sewers.... i never got the point of spending points for expensive living places unless you went all out.

I...technically used to RP on a couple MMOs I played, as in I acted like a girl to get free stuff. Easier than you think, and hey, it's not my fault stupid prepubescent teens are pathetically easy to manipulate.

I stopped a year ago, but I'm still used to playing female characters.

Agreed. The games I play are normally light on rules or a mixture of a few. I tend to like games that are more character and story driven.

Only tried it once and it wasn't a very long game, it seemed interesting --- though a little too involving overall.

Mad props to people who can DM properly though.

I love roleplaying, although I've only ever played D&D as a oneshot. I play using the Fate system a lot and also enjoy the savage worlds system.

I'm currently playing Dresden Files on the fate system and GMing an airship adventure using Castle Falkenstein.

I'm with Rukeya, I prefer a light on rules approach to gaming.
