Hey all. My name is Brian Lacy, and I currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah (although the past few years have been spent jumping around between Provo, Salt Lake, and Cache Valley).

Unlike the majority of Utah residents here, I am NOT and never have been a BYU student. I met Eric Ehlers (SaintEhlers) when we were working together in Provo, and he turned me into a D&D buff. While living in Provo I also had the priviledge of meeting several of Eric's TLE associates.

My passion and expertise is in designing computer games. I do it as a hobby currently, but I have dreams of becoming the next Warren Spector (the designer of System Shock, Deus Ex) or Peter Molyneaux (Populous, Black & White). Hopefully I'll be going back to school this fall to work toward this goal.

Since joining yesterday, I have read several of the reviews in various areas, and I'm sure I'll read more, they seem very practical. I even found myself guiltily enjoying Sluggy Freelance based on a recommendation from the site. :)

But I'm actually here because SaintEhlers might possibly move his AORP game here, and because I found myself enjoying the read in the Heroes Unlimited game run by Fellfrosch.

The new d20 Call of Cthulu... I heard a ton about it before and just after release, and haven't heard a word about it since. Does anyone actually play it? Enjoy it? Despise it? Why?

I agree with SaintEhlers. I don't see what the problem is. I am an inexperienced DM and have only been playing for about 3 years, but I'm confident that with some effort and solid planning I could tweak anything about 3e to my liking. I find it very open ended; I feel that even though they've attempted to address virtually every possibility in the books, its modular enough to make changes on almost any scale.

Give me (or SaintEhlers, naturally) a scenario and I suspect I could come up with a set of adjustments to meet the criteria, without the system "crumbling" or becoming unbalanced. I'm not stating that as a challenge, only a point of view -- although I suppose it could be a challenge if you wanted to take it that way. ;)

The show was kind of interesting, but I wasn't too upset when they canned it.


I think its time I register..

Can anyone tell me if the Shadowmarch series is any good?
