I'm Tim, 48 years old, live in upstate NY. Just getting interested in RPGs for the first time. I'm a writer and podcaster, and curious about how playing RPGs might influence my writing. Looking for online or local gaming groups where I can learn.

Hi.

I was a member of the WotC Rebellion as you put it here. I left when they basically purged the 3.x community.

I spent time on the GitP forums since then, but I am getting tired of the uppity mod there. Thankfully Woodbandman there (not sure what his/her ID is here) invited me here a few months back.

So, what is this place like?

Also, what is a "pod cast"?
Thank you Gary Gygax for so much.
I know you never intended for such things when you made your wonderful game, but you helped me in so many ways. If it wasn't for you I would probably still be completely alone and isolated in my life. Now I am ready to move on with my life, and it is in a large part thanks to you and your creation.

Ignore the kitten, it merely plots world domination. ;)

Welcome Pika...

This is a forum for gaming, of pretty much any variety. We have threads on video games, card games, etc. We have subforums dedicated to d20 or D&D 3.5, etc.

As for what a podcast is:
a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet
You should check out the BG's podcast and judge for yourself, though. :)

Welcome Pika, man of the Hello Kitty mini-fridge.  :)

We've got our wild bunch here, but most of the hardcore howling has abated these days.  That said, there's not much a language filter here, so feel free to speak your mind compared to GitP and RstJ's rule. :)

The "podcast" is the regularly scheduled (again, hooray) distillation of gaming and general advice and humor posted to the interwebz in audio format by Meg, Josh, and Zeke, the owners of this forum.
Winning an argument on the internet is like winning in the Special Olympics.  You won, but you're still retarded.

Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

I was glad when I first saw your username on here, and then confirmed it by your avatar. Nice to see a familiar, and highly experienced face like yours here. I still have a few PrC classes you let gave me permission to put on my campaign world/cosmology site.

But sadly, she did not prove to be the one to improve my genepool, so I am not worth of that title.  :('

I am also good-looking, smart, have a nice hat and an ego that would make the entire Eurasian continent think there was a handsomely formed solar eclipse.

*fluent in Pikachu* Pika pi! Pika pikaaaaa!!!! (welcome!)

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.
