    What are you Currently Playing? (TTRPG Edition)

    So... To keep this section from becoming obsolete...

    What kind of Table-Top Role Playing Games are you Playing and/or Running as of late? Whether it be a Play-by-Post elsewhere, or via a Virtual Tabletop game like Roll20 (where all my gaming takes place as of recently).

    Right now, I'm a player in two Campaigns:

    "Borderlands: Vaultocalypse Soon!" - Yeah, this one is based on the Borderlands games and it takes place on a Prison Planet. Fun times. We're using Savage Worlds as a basis (as, unfortunately, the other system we were using took a lot of the GM)

    "Cyborgs and Cuadrilateros" - This one is a genre mashup between, "Cyberpunk," and "Luchasploitation." Basically, it's Blade Runner... with Masked Mexican Wrestlers. This one is also using Savage Worlds.

    I'm also a GM in three games:

    "Strike Force Nova" - this is a Mecha vs Kaiju game. Basically, you whup the tar out of giant monsters with giant robots. I'm using Fate Core, a more narrative-focused system, for this game. Mostly because crunchier systems are a nightmare for high-powered stuff like this.

    "Deadlands: Doom in Gloom" - I decided to try my hand at a Deadlands game, using their Savage Worlds variant (dubbed, "Deadlands: Reloaded"). Deadlands is basically if The Wild Wild West took place in a more Horror-based world (though, some of those episodes really did have a Horror slant to them)

    "Drakonheim: City of Bones" - This one takes place in a City where Necromancers are allowed to operate openly... and boy howdy, has it caused tension. It's a darker fantasy setting, and (surprise, surprise) I'm using Savage Worlds for this game.

    I did play a game of 40k once. Interesting stuff.

    Sadly, nothing at the moment. I've got some work to finish - and some major RL stuff to get handled - then I want to see about getting a group together. I'm close enough to old friends that we might can do something.

    That's always groovy. I kinda wouldn't mind getting a physical group together... but things just haven't worked out (which is why I'm glad I found Roll20)

    FOR THE EMPRAH!!!

    I know some folks who aren't real keen on the wargaming aspect... but they're HUGE fans of Warhammer 40k's Grimdark Sci-Fi setting and it's Lore.

    Welp, the Deadlands: Reloaded game I'm running ended with what could be described as a, "Blaze of Glory/Total Party Kill." The last man standing ultimately self-destructed all the Ghost Rock-Powered devices on him which- in tandem with all the dynamite the posse was carrying- blew EVERYTHING to smithereens.

    So, my Mecha vs Kaiju game ended on a REALLY depressing note. One of the PCs heroically sacrificed himself to take down the monster, and the still-alive allies each have their own problems to deal with (one is considered MIA, the other has her paranoia cranked up to 11 and burned all her bridges, and the rookie pilot has a case of PTSD).

    On a different note, my next Monday game is a High Fantasy Police Procedural. Basically, CSI meets stuff like D&D. I'm using Savage Worlds for it... because at this point, Savage Worlds is my jam and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

    Been a while since I updated this thread... I'm in a LOT of games right now.

    Monday, I'm still running my High Fantasy Police Procedural. Next Monday game I'm running is called, "Doomsdays & Deathraces," and it'll be using the most recent edition of Savage Worlds (abbreviated SWADE for, "Savage Worlds Adventure Edition.") and all my players are stoked for it. It's basically a High Fantasy Mad Max.

    Tuesday, I'm in a Pathfinder game focused on Politics and Intrigue. I'm playing a Catfolk Investigator... and every time I've missed a session something horrible has happened (last time? The moon got deleted).

    Wednesday, I'm in a Mutants and Masterminds 3e game. It's a Supervillain Academy game, and I have to say... it's gotten crazy.

    Fridays, I'm in two games... one is a playtest (can't say much due to a Non-Disclosure Agreement), and the other I'm GMing Savage RIFTs (basically, an over-the-top Post-Apocalyptic setting that involves everything and the kitchen sink... but with a system that's ACTUALLY playable compared to Palladium's proprietary nightmare).

    I kinda want to run Deadlands: Lost Colony now that I have the PDF from a recent Kickstarter, but I'm doing a lot as-is.

    I'm playing in two games - one I can't remember the name of offhand and a 9th level DND campaign. I just started running a first lvl DND campaign as filler when the other DM's aren't running.

    Which Editions? 3.5e, or do they use the new 5th Edition?
