I finally watched Gamers 2: Dorkness Rising…

One of the people from the Sunday game brought it over, in lieu of us having an actual roleplaying game session tonight; and, yeah, it’s both a perfect representation of how people really roleplay, and why we really roleplay*. Well worth the time to watch.

You shall see no apologies for the ways of my people here; but if you want to figure us out – or you just miss the clatter of dice – check this one out.

    Have you explored 4th Edition, at all?

    Reading the books, I hated it.

    Sitting down to play a session, I *LOVED* it.

    I have no moral objections to Fourth Ed, but my current group’s finishing up an old-school Star Wars game, then going with WW’s Adventure!, and then maybe we’ll go back to me running In Nomine; it’s been a while. None of us have the books; the one most likely to would have been my wife, and she’s old-school AD&D.

  • Jaybird says:

    Ah, I see. If you’re more into the whole group storytelling thing (ain’t nothing wrong with that) then 4th Edition would probably strike you as roll-playing rather than role-playing.

    To make a poor analogy, if you’ve just finished playing a Final Fantasy, sometimes you want to play a Streets of Rage to clear the palate before you get into an, oh, infinite undiscovery. 4th Edition is very much a dungeon crawl/combat sim and very much not a group storytelling experience (not that there’s anything wrong with that either.)
