Heart of glass

Hello, everyone!

This looks like an interesting community. I'm looking forward to it.

I'm a roleplayer, and I guess I always have been, even before I knew what to call it. I don't play computer-based games, like EverQuest, for example, nor do I attend LARPs. The style of gaming I prefer... that would translate well to a face-to-face RP session, but that's difficult for me, because being deaf, it gets harder to follow what's happening.

So, the group I RP with is online -- great group of people. Unfortunately, we're scattered all over the US. We use AOL/AIM (Don't twitch, I know the reputation, but we don't RP in Rhydin -- or even public/member rooms for that matter) and it's generally a closed circle of gamers. Sporadically, people are invited to join, but for the most part, we keep to ourselves, building our characters, our worlds, our stories. is the place to go if you're curious as to what its about. Right now, though, I can only make guarantees for the pages that I host being up and operational, since the sister site was on NBCi, which is a piece of freeserver shit, and the webmistress of that site is joining forces with someone else in the game to move both of their RP character sites to a address.

It started out as Marvel - based. It still is, for the most part. It's mostly set in the universe that Stan Lee created. But it incorporates a lot of other aspects. Let's see, we have AD&D aspects, WW aspects, Master of Orion aspects, Star Wars, Star Trek, Buffy, V:TM, and recently, someone brought in Zelgadis Graywords from The Slayers. It sounds haphazard, but it makes sense the way we do it -- one of the rules, it has to be logical. It has to make sense to bring that character in. There has to be a reasonable way (by the prior history of the game) to bring them in. We have high-power characters, but we've gamed together for years, so we trust each other not to be god-moders. We don't often use dice unless the outcome would be in question, and isn't necessarily vital to the plot to turn out a certain way.

I'm interested in being here to talk about RP, characters, stories, plots, exchange strategies and ideas with others, and the like.
