Hi I'm Steve. I think this is my first post here, although I think I joined a while back.

I'm currently running Liminal, trying to get Fiasco 2nd edition to work, and planning Alien and Hillfolk.

Fate Accelerated is my default system, but I'm taking a break to try out other stuff first.
Hello! Welcome aboard.
 
Welcome to the new UK Gaming Tavern, Steve.

And if you are looking for new games, apart from the Alien RPG, there is a whole award winning product line using that Year Zero Engine from Fria Ligan. Though, I personally enjoy 2d20 games like Conan and Star Trek from Modiphus and the excellent Cubicle7 d100 Warhammer Fantasy. Guessing that 5th Edition D&D is already known to you. :)
 
Hi Steve and welcome to The Tavern
I mainly run and play Numenera and 13th Age
I also have a long-running solo Game of Hostile (Cepheus Engine)
I'm a member of the HOG (Hell's Own Gamers - based in Halesowen)
Would love to get Mutant Year Zero and Coriolis to the table one day
 
Hi, I'm Steve/sparrow, or clockwork dragon (that's my Discord name). I'm based in the Midlands (currently in Wolverhampton), and I work in H.E.

The first game I played was WFRP and I then picked up the hobby properly at uni, with Vampire the Masquerade. I've been bouncing in and out of the hobby since, though I've not played for the past few years (I ended up quitting my group because the other members didn't want what I wanted). I'm very fond of some World of Darkness games, like Gumshoe stuff, WFRP, Shadowrun, and enjoy exploring new games and ways to play.

Beyond that, I'm an author and trying to get my stuff together in novels, and hopefully to write for RPGs at some point too.

Welcome to The Gaming Tavern. There are some salient threads here that could spur your imagination. One of those is the temptation of things you may be resisting. And since you mentioned Warhammer Fantasy Role Play, probably, a perusal of the thread below, could prove interesting:

Greetings All!
I'm Andrew.

"hit the streets in 81, with a heart in the gutter and a poet's crown"..

My experiences and association with RPG's started, more or less by accident, in 1981, after dabbling in the worlds of Avalon Hill Bookcase Games (Squadleader etc..). The local wargames shop (in Bournemouth) suggested "I might like this" when I blundered in one day with money to burn... and at a low point in my life. I had a very low willpower score.. what else can I say? ;)

The first of what would prove many (far too many) games, was a Box of Basic D&D, bought then subsequently mistakenly used in conjunction with an AD&D DMG, bought on the same day on impulse. "Oh it's got a pretty picture on the front...MUST have.."
(From that point on, like a cross between some deranged magpie and fevered pack-rat I've been acquiring and hoarding rpg's.)

The following Monday started 6th form. Whilst sat in tutor group, the person in front turned, saw me reading the DMG and said "We're playing that at lunchtime, come along, we need a fighter....".

And so started a hobby, that precipitated a general decline in sanity and academic achievement.

Some of you may remember me, (or at least recognise my user-name from other forums, it gets used everywhere, I have no imagination ;) ) I'm fairly fortunate in that I appear to regularly blunder into familiar crowds of like-minded people. (Then try and organise them into running games for me).

I've lived on the South Coast of England, in a quaint retirement village known as Christchurch (Where, apparently, "Time is Pleasant").

In that time I've been to many local clubs. My first club was held in the Lymington Library, which then progressed to a hall in nearby New Milton. More or less at the same time, I joined a club that met in Boscome (nr Bournemouth). This eventually became, "The Bournemouth Berserkers" that currently (at least till lockdown..our games are run online now...) meets in Christchurch.

Having defaulted into a position of organisational responsibility there, and still having an interest in the occasional wargame, I suggested running a monthly wargames days on Sundays at the "Regent Centre" in Christchurch. To try an encourage some new members, we used one of these to host a small "Games day". I was then approached by John Amos, who volunteered his club "Have Dice will Travel" (Then based in deepest, darkest, Dorset at Wimbourne St Giles, now based in Poole) to host a RPG game (or two). He successfully managed to recruit me! (as I said, no willpower.. Hmmm) Later, after only several months also attending "Have Dice" he then persuaded (conned) me into GM'ing a game at my only Gen-Con (the last one held at Loughborough). This was my first "real big" con and a bit of an eye-opener.

I mooted trying to organise a residential convention in 2000 with the two clubs combining forces... this became Conception. It ran for 17 years. A long time. I met loads of new people... albeit, many so briefly, that my memories of doing so are a little hazy... but had "fun", so much "fun" that I also became heavily involved in "Indiecon" held at the same site. Alas, problems with the site meant both then sadly dissipated.. although LARP focused "Consequences" still runs there (or did do until the recent "Interesting Times"). The void left by Conception was ably filled by "Contingency" (organised by the wonderful Wyrd Sisters, Chris (CBB) and Carol). With the disruptions caused by the "Interesting Times" I have great sympathy with all convention organisers ATM...

Chins up guys... if Frodo and Sam can make it to Mount Doom... ;)
