My Ultimate Roleplaying Purity score

Many years ago, I was an avid role-player. Hell, I even ran games for the Camarilla live action Vampire game here in Brisbane and wrote a live action game based on the Shadowrun setting. Before that I was a real geek, getting stuck into AD&D in a big way. Well, my buddy Col sent this link to a bunch of the old gamers to test out roleplaying purity. It seems that the lower the score, the bigger the geek, so while in my early days I tended to max out characters and go for the loot, my later, more sensitive, gaming makes up for it.

Aah, what the Hell. Now that I have weekends free there's this Shadowrun campaign I've been wanting to run for a few years now...

I'm so proud. Leonard didn't tell you all how I changed his whole outlook on the roleplaying experience though. Ask him about Ch√Ęteau d’Amberville...

Yeah, I have to admit it did change my opinion of games like D&D. That said, I'm starting to get my head back to dramatic and immersive games. See my more recent posts for more info.
