Funny stuff. She would never make it as a doppleganger.


One thing I implemented in my children's game is fate points. So when they get themselves into trouble I allow them to use a fate point to get out of it as long as they provide dramatic reasoning (might be tough for even younger ones). Accompanying that is some "My Dad is a Gamer" advice about the error of their ways. They learn of consequences without being discouraged after they charge head long at the nearest basilisk. They also learn that there is no second chance after that fate point has been used, so it becomes a nice warning for them that they have gone too far.

I agree. What I'm wondering, though, is where's the old life? Lots of
previously-frequent posters seem to have vanished.

I would be one of the vanished species. . . I have to admit I've been sidetracked. Keeping three children going over summer break, an occasional wedding cake order, and an unfortunate side-treck into smocking (it's a type of embroidery) that has satisfied my artistic itch could be part of the blame.

However we still have our once a month game and I've done a lot of maps for it. I should check into posting some. . . .

I'm a Paramedic based just outside Edinburgh though my patch covers all of
Edinburgh, Lothians and sometimes the Borders (things have to be bad to
get sent down here).

Like many I have done my time in the military, Royal Artillery where
ultimately ended up in 148 Codo. Battery.

I live down in the Anglo-Scottish Border, an area steeped in some seriously
wild history.

Still play with the same face to face group I started out with over 25 years
ago.

After viewing (and throwing my two cents into) the Kepli-inspired Dundjinni discussion on the Fantasy Grounds site, I decided to check back here, hoping against hope to find this very thread. It was quite a surprise to find it on top!

My turn it seems then.

I currently work as the head of the mail order department for a chain of RPG and Wargaming stores. Previously I've worked as an officer in the merchant navy. (I hail from Denmark).

Hobbies include RPG and wargaming (of course), WoW (i'm addicted and I know it ) and going to the gym. Of course, whenever the friends come calling, all the other stuff gets pushed aside (especially since what they usually want to do is to play D&D).

I've been a civilian for 25 years, but I started playing D&D at Fort Campbell, KY in 1980. (My wife bought me the old blue box, basic set. Good Lord, what she started!) Back then even the character sheets were hand written, and all my D&D stuff could fir into 1 briefcase.

AND this is my 50th post, so I think I get promoted to HERO!

LOL!!! I remember those days!

Now every one of my characters has his or her own 3-ring view binder. Included are computer-generated character sheets, assorted support sheets (spells, powers, background stories, etc.), multiple color pics, pics of their home, work, and friends, character sheets of friends, and game notes. Each character has her own dice (gotta keep the karma separate) and dice bag, though I have only one dice box to roll them in.

I'm not sure I could play if I didn't have all my stuff!

Well, backstory, portrait, comp generated sheets are norm for me. I do have a set of dice for each character, and my jasper set for DMing. Not that it really helps, they all seem subject to my anomolous existence on the probability curve.

Good to see you around EE. It's been a while. Your work and tmaaas dabbling first convinced me to try DJ.

I do business valuation. We figure out what businesses, business assets and private company securities like stock and options are worth.

D&D helps me use the other side of my brain and I think makes me better at finance as a result.

I've made a few posts, but I haven't actually introduced myself. So here's the opportunity, right?

I'm a mechanical engineer at one of the USA's national laboratories sponsored by the Department of Energy, specifically Argonne National Laboratory. Most of my job is engineering analysis using various simulation software. Fun stuff! No, really. It's fun.

I've been playing RPGs for about 22 years now. I am currently running a GURPS campaign in a fantasy setting but using horror elements.

...Yeah, sorry, keep forgetting you all have different names! We have junior school (7 years) then high school (5 years) and the last year of high school is called "matric".

A post-matric is usually an extra year of schooling (generally taken either because you flopped matric, or because you want to play rugby - neither in my case). My year is kinda different though: no actual learning school, but leadership courses and stock exchange and financial management and horse-riding and abseiling and sky-diving and...

Basically a year of fun and personal development!

GURPS the way I play it? Well, I wanted to do something a little different than the typical fantasy campaign. Several years ago, I was a player in a Call of Cthulhu game, and I loved it. So, what I'm doing now is starting a fantasy game as normal, but I'm slowly adding bits of horror to the mix. I think at some point it will be more horror than fantasy.

Resources that have helped me: the works of H. P. Lovecraft (best horror author ever IMO), GURPS Spirits, GURPS Horror, as well as the more up to date rules in the 4e GURPS Campaigns book.

Not many posts here but years of lurking.   

Secondary school teacher here up in the Great White North just outside of Toronto. I teach math and computers.

When I am not teaching, marking, planning lessons, running the Robotics team, or raising the family I am lurking here in awe of the talent and patiently learning from the map-masters and waiting for the Java Vista patch so I can actually get the mapping skills upgraded.

Well met.

All new here but have lurking in the objects forum for a few days (great stuff there!). Hope to contribute within a week.

I'm from Sweden and work as a freelance teacher in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. I also freelance as a graphic designer. Worked 12 years with prepress and graphic design (10 years full time).

Edit: Been playing RPG's for more than 25 years now and still does.

I guess it's time for me to hit the Social Lounge.

I'm a web developer for a company working in the college textbook industry. Much more coding than graphic design, but the company did recently foot the bill for my new copy of Photoshop so I'm not complaining.   

I'm the guy with the crazy projector setup for gaming.

At last count, I started gaming 25 years ago. And my wife has me beaten on that record by a year or two. I'm a lucky guy.

Might as well sign in here too...

I currently work at the library here at Samford University (secretary/building coordinator), with a lot of my work going towards our annual Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR). I've also been a print media manager/graphic artist, video game merchandiser (it was the best way I could describe it for my appearance on Jeopardy! back in 2006), comic book colorist, and radio DJ.

I have one child, a 5-year-old son who has recently discovered the joys of Star Wars geekdom...

I have roughly 20 years of gaming under my belt (mainly Palladium-system RPGs), not as many as ruined unfortunately but I think I still have a few more left in me.

I remember seeing your setup pics elsewhere and being so jealous. And I guess your wife would have to be a gamer to let you set it up permanentyly like that.

Great stuff.

5 is a bit too young to D&D but get ready. My son started at age 7. It is a fun age with so much before them.

So how did you do on Jeopardy? Doesn't that mean you lost to Jennings?

My son started D&D at about 6 or 7 and now at 26 he still drives up from Boston to play in my games whenever he can.

I'm planning on working a few adventure modules in while I'm reading to him... you know, start the indoctrination early...

As for the Jeopardy! part... fortunately, Jennings was gone by the time I made it there. I won my first day (due in large part to a "Disney Film Voices" category) but crashed and burned like the Hindenburg the second. It was a blast though!

Welcome! I've been gaming since 1979 and taught my son, 37, to play and dm. He still plays with his friends and helps me with ideas for my online game I run on Rpol. I just turned 63 last month. Long live Gamers!

I started him young by telling him about a different mythology story each night. Then later I read him the whole Belgariad series (all 5 books). He was pretty sure for a while that there was a prophecy about him out there and he was destined for something special. Now he's hooked. Great fun.

Heh - I remember those books. I always enjoyed Polgara. I'll have to re-read them in light of reading them to the girls. We've done the Narnia series and Twilight of Magic. . . .

Micah, Polgara was my favorite also because she was so in charge and so sure of herself.

No, Dunrik, because he was the solid protector of all things good, in love with Polgara, and ready to swim through shark-infested waters to do anything for her. A man's man.

No wait, it was Silk. Was he cool or what? He was everything to everyone.

Ahh, I could go on. The names in the book have become standards in all my games as archetypical characters. My son now plays a rogue named Silk in our campaign. He just finished the series for the third time, once with me and twice on his own.

To fight off inflation everyone should be purchasing Gold and Silver in some form - Gold Coins - Silver Coins or bullion / bars

The best way to start is to start out with a simple program called Silver Snowball - You can visit my site, join and start your collection today.

You hear that, Kepli? You need to get rid of those lousy Euros and buy some of our Collectible American Silver Dollars.

They have some great selling points--first of all, they're shiny, and secondly, they proudly display leaders and logos which can be strange and foreign to you.

You can buy five of these Shiny American Silver Dollars for just $19.95--now that's one great deal! Did I mention that they're shiny?

Hell no!
I'm from a much colder country (guess!)
You need lots of training and university knowledge.
I don't just spend my day saying "I'm sorry sir we can't do that!" . Sometimes I slide in a couple of words about 'vested shares' and 'de-mutualization' in between.

Hello All,

This is my very first time to post anywhere on any site.

I just bought a retail copy of DJ on eBay and have been playing for hours now. What fun! Prior to this, I was a cardstock modeling enthusiast. Then one day I decided it was entirely too tedious. All the cutting and Gluing. A whole closest full of castle corridors and caves. (Wife wants her closet back)

Role-playing used to be cheep entertainment. 2 years ago I became completely addicted to Wizards Miniatures.
I don't know when Wotc became so savvy, but they are marketing evil geniuses and they are taking all my money!

I want to use DJ to render some of the old D&D maps like B2 Borderlands (I think someone mentioned that old module earlier in this thread).

I have played D&D since 9 (1970) and have played with my 9 year old for a year now. He tries to DM, but, well, He will throw everything at you, and then realize he sent too much and make the bad guys let you go. Every treasure is a kings ransom and ever item is magic.

I have played Story Teller (Mage), and currently play in a fantasy-turning-horror GRUPS game.

I love my boring little job: a credit rep for a Major Texas Newspaper. Basically, Im a really nice collector.

I have a wife who really does not understand my need to play make believe, and another son age 2.

Have you ever heard the mating call of the wild spam?

Not a pretty sound!

Wow! I ramble.

Welcome aboard Cheerful Reaper!

I have a husband that thinks like your wife. The closest he gets to roleplaying is playing Chess. :D Lucily my son loves it. I taught him well! He's now 37 and still loving it.

OK I'm shocked I have not added to this thread, lol!

Anyway, I'm a salesperson mostly with a background in Computer tech fields. I currently have a degree in Computer Applications and Operation Systems (CAOS/CIS). I self-employed as a computer technician for small business and home users as Dr. Dan Computer Services.

I'm a parts manager at our local Kia dealership. On weekends I judge Horrorclix tournements at Kapow comics in Sherwood, Arkansas. I got Dundjinni to make some new maps for our Horroclix and Heroclix players. After having the program for only 1 day now, I have already spent several hours searching the net for new objects to use.
I will be here a lot asking for advice. Nice to meet you all.

I'm a graphic designer at a small design studio in the city where I live. I've been a designer for about 10 years, now. I've had Dundjinni for a number of years, but never really taken any time to use it because I always had problems getting it to work on my PC.

Then I got a Mac.

I've been scrounging the net for objects the last week or so, and found RPGMapShare - what a fantastic resource!

I'm going to GenCon in August, and I'm putting together maps for a one-shot adventure I'm putting together for the buddies I'm heading down there with.

Anyone else here going to GenCon?

Rob.

Hi,

   Well, I finally decided to no more be a Forum-Lurker, and this post seems to be a very good one to start my first message!


I'm French (Apologies for my personnal version of English language! ), IT Architect, previously student in Virtual reality, computer graphics and Fan of RolePlayGames...


I heard about Dundjinni only six Month ago, and that's changed my life : I was before drawing Maps with Autorealms (which is honest, free, but does not give really beautiful maps), or with the "draw" menu from Excel (wich is...yeah, I know..no need to throw stones at me : my friends and players already did it when I showed them these maps!! )


So I bought Dundjinni, some artpacks (Ok, almost all artpacks!), and started to play with it. I have to admit the learning curve with Dundjinni is REALLY fast : most of my first maps were "caves maps" and it's incredibly fast to do an "honest" map with the marquee tools... Of course, itemizations, manual shadows, overlays, etc, needs some lurking time on the forum, but it's easy to find once I know what to search for .


Beside, Dundjinni is light enough to run on my EEE-PC, even if I had to install WinXP instead Linux due to this @#$@#$ ICE-JNI-Registration Library. Next step is to install a touchscreen on it, in order to drop away the mouse, and to draw directly on the screen with a pen... (My Girlfriend said I'm a Geek...I dunno why?)

The worst thing about dundjinni? The marquee tools have no "undo" function : I no more count the times I slammed furiously my mouse after clicking somewhere without the Control or Shift key pressed.... *Sigh*


The best thing about dundjinni? Everything else, including the forum's activity! There is everyday tips, free art, maps on it... It's so Huge that the hard part is sometime to find the right word ( my english vocabulary is not so great!) to describe what I would do, or the item I want to complete my map!!


Anyway, I already recommended Dundjinni to every roleplayer I know, and as soon as I showed them some maps done with it, they drooled : I guess it's a good sign!!


Now I'm just waiting for the next version of Dundjinni, lurking on the forums, and I continue (when I have some time) to draw maps for a Campaign I will probably never do play (I will probably post it freely on the net, I guess) But as long as I enjoy drawing maps, it doesn't really matter


Cheers, And keep the good work on every next version of Dundjinni!!
    Fabien.

P.S: Hmmm I made finally a long post with a lot of smileys... I will be more reasonnable next time

Officially I'm a student of economy and business administration (what? it sounds boring? It IS!). Inofficially I'm a freelance composer for orchestral music and have scored a few games and tv productions, nothing major though... but I'm working on it.

I was a specialty carpenter by trade and I am now a student working on a
law degree.

Got Dundjinni for my Law school DnD group and because I have little to
no artistic ability when it comes to drawing.

You think you have rules lawyers, you don't know the half of it.

How many lawyers does it take to adjudicate a fireball in a hallway?

Don't know that is still up for appeal for removal to federal court on the
basis of diversity jurisdiction.

Thanks for the welcome.

Hi all! I'm a marketing person at an environmental engineering firm. I have a degree in art, which only marginally relates to what I do for a living, so I get my kicks in other places - like making maps for my husband's D&D campaigns (he's more of a thinky type - I like the creative stuff).

I've been the Map Wench for the past year (ever since I volunteered to scan & print the battle maps from the modules... what was I thinking??). But I really kindof get off on making our games cool. Graphic maps are so much cooler than magic marker on a battlemap, huh? Since we started 4th edition my first project was scanning all the maps for the modules and blowing them up and editing out the monster markers so we could have cool battlemaps. My second project was printing power cards for everyone from MSE (for the folks who don't have the character generator, anyway). So Dundjinni & custom maps is just the next project in the snowball.

I just dig it when our group oohs and ahhs at the battle maps. Dundjinni's gonna knock their socks off!

Good to see new activity over here.
I've been pretty busy lately and haven't had a lot of mapping time. Getting the itch though. . . .

Welcome aboard to all the new faces!

Hey Bogie,
I actually started working on one on our family vacation. . . I got it about 1/15th done LOL. Have to start a new school semester tomorrow, so I doubt it will get posted too soon, but I am working on it!
