I've seen VtR or VtM, World of Darkness,Fate, Gurps, Spycraft.  I dont have links, sorry.  These are just ones I've actually heard of from other people over the last few years.
Game Questions / Modern game settings?
« Last post by SchrodingersNinja on June 28, 2017, 03:05:45 PM »
Does anyone have any suggestions for game settings or systems that are modern?

Specifically I was wondering about a role playing game which would have players without magic powers but instead using firearms or any type of martial skills a real person could develop?

Links to online rules would be great, but links to rule-books available to buy are acceptable as well.

As most everyone knows we recently moved the Irate Pirate to a new host which cause a little disruption over the weekend.  Before we moved I had apparently purchased a package that limited the amount of activity and we exceeded that almost immediately after the move a couple times, so I upgraded my plan.  I didn't realize that by upgrading, that would move the site to a new server, which caused several posts to disappear yesterday.  I do Apologize for any missing posts and we are now fully migrated to the new host and new server and I don't expect anymore interruptions.  This process fixed the slow loading times of the pages and the occasional outages we were experiencing on a daily basis.  Thank you for your patience through all of this and as always, if you have any issues or concerns, please contact either myself or Otter via PM! 

Update:  Tapatalk is now working again.
Looking For Game / Exalted/Godbound LFG
« Last post by xlr8er365 on June 14, 2017, 05:32:25 PM »
Experience: 4+ years
  • Godbound
  • Shadowrun 1e/5e
  • Pathfinder
  • D&D4e/5e
  • Pathfinder
  • Stars Without Number
  • Silent Legions
  • Savage Worlds (basically all settings)
  • Warhammer
  • Star Wars Fantasy Flight RPG
Open to: Anything, but prefer a high powered game like Exalted or Godbound.
Availability: Minimum once per day, very likely I will be available a lot more.
Play Style: Usually something stealth/charisma, occasionally attempt tanks or healers, specifically for a Godbound game looking to perhaps play a bard.
Other Notes: Never have done PbP, but usually run Text-Only games, so should not be a problem.

Hey!  I'd never even heard of this system...

If nobody else knows how to/wants to run it, you could always post in the Burning Wheel subreddit and see if anyone there might be interested in running a game on the forum.  =D
Looking For Game / Burning Wheel Game?
« Last post by Mr_Beastley on June 05, 2017, 11:07:15 PM »
Hey everyone! So I've been reading up on the Burning Wheel system for a while... I don't have Burning Wheel Gold but I have read the original Burning Wheel and the Character Burner and they seem so intriguing. The problem of course is that no one ever seems to run a Burning Wheel game... does anyone have experience running a PbP Burning Wheel game? If so would you be interested in starting a game? I'd love to play it if you do!

Alright guys!  We know some of you are super excited to start looking into rules and character creation for Vampire, even though you haven't played before.  We want to have something for you to be able to do while you wait and give you at least a few guidelines about the kind of game this will be, so we've created a new membergroup for you.

If you HAVE NOT played any game from a World of Darkness setting (Werewolf, Vampire, Scion, etc), then you may join the "VtR - Kine membership group"As a warning, this is occasionally an R-Rated game.  It's a 'personal horror' genre, so if you're squeamish, it might not be the right game for you.

If you HAVE played a WoD-set game, you'll want to request membership to the "VtR - Kindred group" (just list which book/s you have experience with for the "reason" section).

You can find both member groups in the Membership section of your profile.  Please only join one group.

Once you are in a group, you will be able to see a new section of the board.  PLEASE READ THROUGH ALL OF THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE TO YOU.

If you would like to get the books for yourself, we are using the World of Darkness core book and Vampire the Requiem 1st edition (we'll probably pull a few specific changes from 2nd here and there).

You can get both books from Drive-Thru RPG in hard copy and/or PDF:
Vampire the Requiem
New World of Darkness

Heya! Sorry for the slow reply, I promise I'll be much more available now that exams are finally over!
Thank you so much for the invite, that sounds great! I read through the thread you linked and have a weird concept I wanted to run by you. Sort of inspired by the themes of Ratatouille, I want my character to be a giant cockroach who dreams of being a world-class chef but is hampered by the fact that people think cockroaches are gross and shouldn't be allowed in kitchens. She's determined to overcome such stereotypes with her delicious cuisine, and by being terribly matronly (I'm thinking the cockroach version of Julia Child) aided by the fact that she has 6 legs (or, I guess, 4 arms and 2 legs?) for cooking with, can walk on walls, and survive nuclear explosions. I'll go post more details and stats to the character thread if this sounds okay to you! Happy to come up with a different concept if this isn't the sort of idea you were looking for.
