Many mefites play MMO/MMORPGs and I thought it might be nice to create a space to share our contacts with one another so we can go on some raids together. Whether it's World of Warcraft (WoW), Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), Black Desert Online (BDO), Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV), Phantasy Star Online 2 (PSO2), Eve Online (EO), Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR), Guild Wars 2 (GW2), Runescape, Star Trek Online (STO), whatever MMO you play, let us share our gamer tags/contacts/character names and join in a virtual space of our choosing to get our game on.
We've received a large volume of user complaints in the last few months about performance issues with our current version of reality, and so today we're rolling out some fantasy instead to see if that can help take the strain off. Please help us beta test this new initiative with the Faves & Flags Character Sheet Generator. Want more detail? Check out what little remains of the original game manual (or a more legible and screen-reader friendly OCR version here). [more inside]
Would MeFites be interested in a MetaFilter RPG community on Google+ (or some other forum if you have it)? [more inside]
I just noticed today that Lore Sjoberg's badgods.com is back up, and with it the official archives of Speak With Monsters, a.k.a. Monster Manual Comix, as lamented about a month and a half ago. Yaay!
I have seen a fair few folks mentioning how much they'd enjoy playing Pen and Paper RPGs alongside their fellow MeFites in various threads over the past few months. If anyone is interested please drop in here and we can try to organise some play. [more inside]
Any MeFites want to start up some Skype-based games of Fiasco? [more inside]
Is anyone up for a Metafilter Call of Cthulhu adventure? [more inside]
D&D (or related RPG) mefites in Philadelphia area? [more inside]
Metafilters own cstross has a roleplaying game in the works. Congrats!
If anyone signed up for the Delta Green: Targets of Opportunity ransom as a result of this post you might be wondering where the book is. Here's an update. (Also if anyone was wondering about the fundable closure it shouldn't be affected by that)
MeFites and MoFites are Lexiconing here. Fake scholarship at its best! Is this a self-link? An us-link?
This is my greatest stolen modified idea today. Metafilter hitpoints! We all get 5000 to start. Once you level up via unattacked thread posting, you can cast healing spells on your favorite, but inexplicably hated MeFi pals, or do double damage with Fireballs. Anybody who reaches zero has their account closed, unless someone ells resurrects you by sacrificing 3/4 of their remaining points.
