6:40a - Looking for inspiration
Where do you find inspiration for your characters?

I'm having trouble coming up with a character I like and am eager to play for my husband's game, and thought perhaps that hearing how other people find inspiration might give me some ideas.

(If it matters for the responses, the game system is CJ Carella's WitchCraft.)

current mood: curious

10:27a - Strange Days in the Gaming Industry.

I apologize if this was already posted. I didn't see it and it seems an important and telling event about gaming, our sub-culture and our marketplace. Palladium Games has been dealt a strange blow to their business. Here's a quote: "For legal reasons, I cannot go into details about exactly what happened. Suffice it to say that betrayal of trust, theft, and embezzlement has inflicted what we estimate to be $850,000 to 1.3 million dollars in damages to Palladium. "

I never was a dedicated player of RIFTs and never cared for the system, but I do appreciate what they meant to the Marketplace and always thought the setting was a rich and amazing one. I'd hate to see the industry take this kind of blow. Is this is a case for marketplace darwinism? Probably, I guess it will be up to us to decide.

There are a lot more details, but suffice to say they have a last ditch sort of plan that might be of interest to us as gamers. It is also a strange litmus test of whether gamers are just another group of consumers or actually ARE a community.

I will let the folks at Palladium speak for themselves.
