Quote of the week: "dude, for a whole hour, i would fall asleep!"
I've done some quick pickup online RPGs with White Wolf (d10) and actually made some forums for my friends and whoever else wants to get in out it (shameless plug).
From my limited experience it was actually pretty fun. You don't have to worry about people talking in the background and such. It gives the GM and players more time to think about their actions, which usually prevents idiotic actions. I also found that I could describe things better in writing.I agree, but if you want to have a serious adventure, its hella fun. Its great for realism, in that the GM can roll all the dice and just say what happens. Its also great for people who live far away from eachother or for people who can't meet often.it elmininates the whole books and paper thing, sitting around a table snacking, laughing and rollin the dice.
I would suggest trying it out some time.

We get orgasms cause thats 30 whole seconds god doesn't have to listen to us bitch.
I've always wondered why people post on message boards. I think it's totally dumb and lame, it eliminates the whole face-to-face conversation thing, sitting around on a sofa snacking, laughing and chewin' the fat...Originally posted by Oblivion_Angel@Oct 14 2004, 20:51

You get the point.
One big reason why people play it online is because they can't find enough (or any) people in RL to play it with. Also, people make friends over the Internet and naturally, if they both like D&D then they'd want to play a game of it together. Given that people you know from the net usually live a long way away (often on another continent...) it's not practical for them to play face-to-face.

I started playing DnD because it was an excuse to see my mates more often and have a laugh (whist crushing them with my sorcery). When i played an online DnD game, I stopped after a few days because, apart from the boredom, the thing about it was all i got out of it was a series of numbers to explain my non-existant progress. It just wasnt fun! Whatever mkes me enjoy DnD (which is cannot really explain because i don't know myself) is taken out when you do it online... for me it becomes soulless.
FROM THE BOOK OF THE IMPERIUM:
1. Thou shalt not go on a panty raid in the Adaptus Soritus temple.
2. Thou shalt not flirt with Howling Banshees. They are the enemy.
3. Thou shalt not refer to Battle Sisters as Bolter Biatches
4. Darth Vader isnâ€™t the son of Abaddon
5. Thou shalt not reassemble a Necron into a washing machine
D'n'd is fun to play with your friends and stuff cuz you sit around a table and just have fun, online its just stupid to me there is no emotions and you can't tell if the people you are playing with arent cheating.
thats my imput.

I agree the it's soulless too play it over messenger or whatever! The greatest thing about it is that you can gather around a table and create! You create fun, drama, and best of all you do it with your friends... ^_^ I just don't like it. But I do respect those who likes it. -Good for you :hmm:

I play D&D on forums and pen and paper, I can't really paly with people that often as I live about 100 miles away from the guys I play with.... this causes a problem. Online D&D is fun, its just different, you get some great stories out of ti and characters can build well. Yeah you don't sit around and talk with the people but you do tend to get alot more immersed in the characters cause 'fred' doesn't start standing on his hands because 'bill' is taking too long and then fall over so everyone starts laughing. Its a different type of game.
has anyone seen the new D&D box set that has minatures in it???
i looks laughable, but i think it just might rejuvinate the medium.
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
To tell the truth I don't think it matters that much well for a few things that where metioned but I think it all depends on the DM.
Adapt or die: Live with it or die by it.
"Gork save our crazy green,
keep all da Grot's obscene,
Gork save da green,
Give us stunties to kill,
And uumie's blood ta spill,
So we can smash and hii-iii-iit,
'Til we see the true giiiiiiiiit."
Da stunties turn to flee,
and fills dere boots wiv wee,
when we charge in.
Dere beards will turn to white,
dere heroes filled wiv fright,
Dem trousers smell of shiii-iii-iiite,
and our Gork will griiiiiiin."
Well in all honesty I would agree that D&D over the internet is boring. But it all depends. I usually play pen and paper with people as I prefer it to Online. But online has its benifits and theres ways to keep people from cheating. Hell I was so impressed with a site for its Rping that I created my own based on D&D 3.0. And I have had nothing but compliments about it! they love it and its cheating free!
But as i wont advertise over Lo anyone can get in contact with me through MSN
