Looking for GM for a Fantasy game (D&D?)

Recommended Posts

Come across this site which basically translates DnD into the hero system, and got the idea to run a fantasy game (perhaps just a DnD setting), just using the hero system. Had some amazing experiences with a competent GM using the hero system for how flexible it is, so I hope to find someone who will run a game for me (and perhaps a few others). 

 

I would prefer to have the game ran over Discord for how well it accommodates either voice communication, or a PbP format (or heck, just having people get together for a few hours and make back-to-back posts via text, but at the speed of a live game)

Are you offering to act as GM for a game or are you looking for a GM and (presumably) other players?  The subject line is not really clear on that. What days/times do you want to play? In online gaming, that is probably the single most important thing to state. When I was regularly gaming online, I had to turn people away because they lived in Europe and I live in California, USA. The time difference put my games somewhere between 0100-0500 hours the next day. 

 

I would suggest roll20.net or, if you are okay with installing new software, MapTool. Both are chat based programs with integrated mapping and dice rolling features. MapTool is more customizable but requires both the program and Java be installed. Roll20.net is a web-based application and is both more stable and more easily used by players on different platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux), but lacks some of the hardcore macro functions of MapTool. There are also paid for programs like Fantasy Grounds, but I would not recommend those.

 

For myself, my interest is piqued. Depending on your answers and whether or not we can assemble a small group (3-5 players plus GM is ideal for online play), I might be interested.

I'd assume he's looking for a GM. Regardless my interest is piqued too, then again i'm starving for some type of long-term game to play, be it D&D herosystem or something else.

I am looking for a GM (The question mark in the title was only for the brackets).

 

Info on me: I am in EST time zone, but can be online for a game most times unless im like working or such, but since im not busy every day, I can generally tell you when i can definitely sit down for a game.

 

So I have 2 options for what I want to run:

1) Is basically any DnD style campaign. I dont have any big preferences, though i hear people love Eberron.

 

2) Continuing the game that recently went on hiatus due to GM getting busy.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I hate leaving people hanging.

 

Sadly, I am not in the market to be a GM right now. I have a few personal issues that consume a vast amount of my time and I will not be able to devote myself to the chore of organizing and running a long-term game. I tend to throw myself into such projects but there is not enough mental energy left for that sort of thing.  If I were to commit to such a thing, I never try to build upon another GM's game. I am not in their head and have no knowledge of their intention. Besides, I am an avowed hater of the Song of Ice and Fire. I am also in a fantasy burnout phase right now so I don't think I'd be a good fit.

 

Thank you for taking the time to respond. I hope you find your GM and have a really great game that lasts as long as you want it to. I'm just looking more towards being a player right now.

No problem. Let me know if you find a Hero game as a player (Be it fantasy or not), and there are some empty spots.
