So, Roleplaying huh?

Ok, so we’ve gotten sloppy this week when it comes to organizing games.

So, this Saturday, I’m busy.
This Friday and Thursday, I’m not busy.

Therefore, can we do a Friday game of (I assume) B5 this Friday at 4?

Is Nancy coming? Is Li coming? Is Norm free? Is Bashar in the country? Does skip have her char sheet ready yet?

(By the way, Norman, I don’t think she does have her char sheet anymore, so she says she probably wants a new character, leaving me as the only character left from the original game). I’ll send you an email on something else too.

As for Bashar’s game: I got you something cool Bashar… Well… I got me something cool, but you can borrow it. 😛

Games on hold

Thought I’d just give a quick rundown of games that are currently on hold or in progress. Everyone keeps talking about various campaigns, and reboots of old campaigns and whatnot, so I thought I’d put up the list. It is quite ridiculous.

What do people want to do with them?

Neil: Runequest campaign.
Neil: Legend of the 5 Rings campaign (New!)
Heidi: Dragonwraith campaign.
Heidi: My little pony campaign.
Norman: Babylon 5 campaign.
Norman: Warhammer Fantasy campaign.
Norman: Warhammer 40K campaign.
Norman: Judge Dredd campaign (Ongoing).
Norman: Star Trek campaign (New!).
Omar: Pangean Fantasy campaign (Working on a new Epic Level Campaign that follows on from the last).
Omar: Family Matters World of Darkness campaign (Ongoing).
Omar: Planescape campaign (Work in progress).
Omar: The First Gods (Freeform DMing experiment).
Omar: I don’t actually have a campaign idea here, but I want to test out a game system I’m developing. I’m therefore considering doing a shadowrun setting, with the game system I made up. (Magic in, guns with autofire in, cybernetics in, etc).
Bashar: DMing Debut! (Undetermined system/setting, New!).

Personally I’m up for playing any of them. Are there any I’ve missed? I’ve included all the ones *I* know are in planning. Any that you guys are planning that I don’t know about?

Let me know.

Session for the Week. 16th to 22nd May.

Date: Friday May 21st.
Location: Neil’s place.
Time: 4PM onwards
Game: Family Matters (My World of Darkness Campaign) or Judge Dredd game.
DM/GM/Host: Omar or Norman.

I’m capable of DMing a game no matter what, but I’d like more time to prepare the next session. So if Norm can’t DM, I will, if he can, lets do that.

Besides, then I get to smack more things with my Daystick. 🙂

Judge Dredd RPG


It is the early 21st Century. Some five decades years after humanity’s worst nightmare came true. The world ripped itself to shreds in massive atomic warfare. Entire regions around the world have been laid waste, turned into radioactive badlands inhabited by the deformed, mutated and insane.

With governments and countries gone, already developing special police forces took over. Raising up huge walled and shielded Mega –Cities spreading over the ruins of dozens of conurbations. These special police forces became the Judges. Trained from childhood to be tough, incorruptible upholders of the law they fulfil the role of police officer, judge, jury and when needed, executioner on the mean streets of the 22nd century. The Judges also oversee and run most of the governmental and administration duties of cities.

This will be a one off game (perhaps taking more taking more than one session) for me to test the system and potential of the game. It will be set in Mega-City One – a vast metropolis which covers most of what was the Eastern Seaboard of the USA. A place where every one of the 400 million citizens is a potential lawbreaker.

All characters will be newly graduated cadet Judges, known as Rookies, who have just passed their first supervised patrols out on the mean streets of Mega-City one…for character creation please email me at Optimusnorm at gmail dot com and we can go over details.

Session for the Week. 25th of April to 1st of May 2010.

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

We have no plans for a game this week. Again we have complete radio silence with occasional telephone calls and texts I get asking when/where/if the game is occurring.

We have at least 2 options.
1) I can DM/GM/Host if necessary. I’d rather do something than nothing. I can do so on any of the 3 days we usually game.

2) Ironman 2. Probably Thursday night. I’ll need confirmation on this pretty fast if we’re going to get tickets.

3) Someone else can do something (Fringe game? Dragonwraith (Skip’s) game? WH40K? DND4.0 one off? Bashar attempting to DM something to get his DMing wings? I can DM a one off freeform session just to try it out? I can try a Pathfinder game?)

4) Something else?

Also if you’re thinking of starting a game, put it up somewhere. Talking about it in person just doesn’t seem to work.

Session for the Week. 18th to 24th April 2010.

Ok, looks like I’m DMing the next two sessions.

Date: Thursday 22nd of April.
Location: Neil’s place.
Time: 8:15PM to midnightishesque.
Game: Family Matters (My World of Darkness Campaign)
DM/GM/Host: Omar

New Player: Salman.
Salman will in theory be joining on the 22nd, I have an idea where to put him.

Put down suggestions for what we’re ordering below and maybe we can save some time ordering too.

The First Post

Ladies and Gentlemen.

I have taken the liberty of setting up a blog to organize our shenanigans.
We’ve gone far too long trying to organize ourselves when we have nowhere to collate our information. This blog is an effort to end that.
Every week, I will be putting up a post regarding a specific session. We can all come here and look up or contribute to the details (which day will it be on, can everyone make it, etc). That is something we need, we’ve cancelled two sessions this month solely because we were unclear as to what was happening.
What else I’ll be doing is including updates on my campaign on the blog, putting up suggestions for other campaigns in the blog and just generally keeping everyone in the loop on what I’m thinking.
Finally, this blog I’m hoping can act as a catalyst or recruitment tool for getting a proper gaming/roleplaying society set up in Dubai/UAE.
I’m including all the tags we might use in the bottom of this blog to help organize future posts.
