Hello. I just figured I would introduce myself. My name is Niki. I'm a 23 year old student. I came into DnD when I was 16 and started playing almost everyweek after. Mostly, my DM does home brewed campeighns. There was this one HUGE one where each of our players played SIX characters. Coming up with all of them was fun but playing them all wasn't. Starting soon, we're going into Forgotten Realms. I'm excited about it and have started developing my character already even though we won't be playing for about two months. I've rolled her up, got her stats, equipment, the whole thing...except a name. :D She's a Ghostwise Halfling Rogue. Here's my experience with gaming pretty much copied right from my profile on RPG Registry.

Alternity (Beginner)
Baldurs Gate (Novice)
d20 Modern (Intermediate)
D20 System (Intermediate)
Diablo II (Intermediate)
Dungeons & Dragons: 3rd Edition (Intermediate)
Forgottem Realms (Intermediate)
Kindred of the East (Novice)
Magic: The Gathering (Intermediate)
Ravenloft (Intermediate)
Vampire: Dark Ages (Intermediate)
Vampire: The Masquerade (Intermediate) Played LARP.
White Wolf (General) (Intermediate

Well, nice to meet you. :)

Welcome.

I remember Alternity. Its a good system, very realistic...almost too much so; but very enjoyable for the game i played in.

Ravenloft was good too, scary if done correctly as well as V:tM LARP....but those are very rarly done right...usually the "Lets go kill the freak of the week" kind of deal.

The Larp I was in wasn't too bad. The "Man in charge" wanted it to be better but he had a bunch of Anne Rice/Buffy freaks (nothing against either of them, I'm a fan) and they sucked.

I played one game of Alternity, which we could've gotten more going. I'm glad they resurrected a lot of the elements in d20 Mod Menace Manual and d20 Future, but making the Fraal stubby little grays kinda disappoints me.

I'll be honest when I say that I think d20 modern is the dumbest game in existance. There are systems that bring about the same effect as d20 modern (the movie sort of feel), except that they do it alot better. Systems like BESM or the tristat system in general as one example, Alternity being another. d20 is not the end all be all thing of gaming and I think that this is going to be a rant and a post for later...but yeah.

Disclaimer: This is not really inteneded towards you, its just a generic statment inspired by your comments.

I guess I'll just keep my Alternity-related ocmments confined to the d20modern community from now on then.

Since I noticed you've had a chance to try both systems, do you have a preference between White Wolf games like Vampire and Dungeons and Dragons games?

I was just curious, since I play both at the moment and I'm always having this personal debate on the pros and cons of each system.

Oh, and by the way: welcome!

Well, I'm not really sure because I played all my white wolf games as LARPS...so there's a real difference between tabletop and that...still, I have to say I love Dnd and D20 more so that Vampire.

Its the basic differance between point-buy and level based systems. As a whole point buy are generally better, and make customizing your character a little more realistic and details to ehat you envision the character as. Like do you honestly pictire the level 10 mage being better with a sworsd then the 2nd level fighter?.....no.
