    [​IMG] I have always been into D&D, i have played it for the first time 13 years ago and i still do, well at least i try, but to be honest the only decent RPG games i have played in the last few years where single player CRPG's like BG,IWD,KOTOR,ME.

    I find weird that with all the technology the blazing fast computers and huge internet bandwidth i haven't actually been able to find a good game, place and/or people that would bring me the same experience of the old school table top.

    I would really like to know what is going on with everyone else, what are you guys into right now as far as yours D&D needs are concerned?

    What multiplayer RPG games do you recommend?Is anyone into multiplayer NWN,iRPG, or even the multiplayer mode of BG or IWD?

    I would really appreciate to hear everyone's thoughts on this,

    best regards,

    I've tried Play by E-mail and via MSN, but they fall down quickly when the party shuts up. And with MSN, it becomes hard to keep track of the game when everyone is talking at once. MSN would work if you have at most three other players...

    I have yet to find anything that tops the old school style, where the players gather in a room with the books, sheets, figures and anything else you can get a hold of. Sometimes you just need to see the look on their face when you spring the diabolical plot on them...

    I'm intrigued but skeptical about the online options that 4th edition offers. A Horror game loses it's intensity when the players know that the DM has the Leaf's game on TV while they are playing...

    There are programs called 'virtual tabletops' that try to make everything as tabletopish as possible. Otherwise I just go for IRC.

    Attempting to roleplay in online cRPGs is, IMO, an exercise in futility. There's just not enough flexibility. Perhaps have a look into MUSHes?

    I use OpenRPG, i play a 3.5 game and a 2e game, i run the 2e game every wednesday, play a real 2e game every thursday and play an 3.5 game every friday.

    I think OpenRPG is a great virtual tabletop, its easy to use and makes finding and joining the games you want really easy, it has a large community as well which helps, altho tring to find people to play 2e online for openRPG is quite hard, the game i run only has 2 players, if anyone is interested let me know lol

    I havent played any online RPGs at all so i cant comment on them.

    [​IMG] I don't really play online anymore :hmm:

    Only played regularly over IRC, which I like, is quite fun. Tried forums, e-mail, etc, it didn't go too well :rolleyes:

    I have used OpenRPG, play-by-post and Sorcerers Net own IRC channel. All of the 3 can work.
