What games are we playing at the next meetup
What games would people like to play? It's been awhile since I ran something, so that's certainly on the table. I could go back to the Buck Rogers campaign, but I was thinking of trying something different. Something not based around D&D, just for a change. Maybe a Vampire game. Anybody else have any thoughts?

Thanks Andy, that sounds good to me. I don't think I'm going to have the next instalment of the Taladas campaign ready in time - Sandy, reckon you'll be able to run some more Dark Ages stuff? Craig, Kev, fancy a turn at GM-ing? Ed 16:52, 24 August 2010 (BST)
I haven't played Vampire in years, I'd be up for that. The question that springs to mind is Masquerade or Requiem..? Craig 10:38, 7 September 2010 (BST)
- Probably Requiem, mostly because I've been thinking and I was only going to use the system rather than most of the background info. I actually prefered the old world, so if I ever run a vampire game properly, that is the one I'd use.
- In any event, I was planning on upholding my reputation for weird games and see how much I can freak you all out. Andy 17:15, 7 September 2010 (BST)
- Not sure if I'll be running any more Dark Age. I'm getting kind of disillusioned with it to be honest. I think the problem lies in the fact I'm trying to run a big political situation arond your characters, which is hampered by the long gaps between sessions. It takes about an hour or two just to remind everyone where we are and who all the NPCs are (not helped by my decision to use all those Celtic names!). It probably wouldn't be a problem if we were playing every week, but sadly we're not.
- That's also a personal reason why I'm getting frustrated with it. I've got so many cool ideas I was planning, but at the rate we're going it'd be about 15-20 years before I get to use them! So I think I might try doing something less long-term, more episodic. That way it'll be less frustrating for me.
- As far as Vampire goes, yeah, that'll be cool. Bagsy the Malkavian. :) --Alex 21:36, 8 September 2010 (BST)
- See, that's why I was checking whether it was Masquerade or Requiem; I wanted to play a Malkavian, but they dropped them in Requiem. Otherwise I would have bagsied it myself... Craig 08:58, 9 September 2010 (BST)
Here is an idea I had. It might be good for another meet, seeing as we are getting rather close to this one. We experimented with a shared design world. How about we try a shared GM game?
Everyone has a character, but different people take it in turns to be the GM. While you are the GM, your PC becomes the compulsary tag along NPC that every group has. Next time, you are back to being a PC and some one else runs a game.
The shared GM thing means that the game would tend to play as a series of one off adventures, rather than a campaign with a central theme(very old school), but there would be good variety in playing styles. It also means that if Geoff,Craig or Kev fancied running a game once in awhile, they ocould, without having to worry about roling up new characters or setting up a whole world to do it in.
