Comment Re: Introduce Yourself!
by Gladyn last modified May 15, 2019 01:58 PM
Greetings I usually answer to three alias I would use throughout the videogame landscape. ToneDef613, Gladyn, or Lilithian. I just turned 41 years old, I'm hard of hearing but depends strongly on sign language to communicate. I live in the big city of Ontario. (Hello neighbour !). I'm a long time RPG player and Boardgames player since grade 4 (9 years old?). Its been ages since I played the tabletop RPGs. I would normally play D&D (2nd Ed. Era!), Specialist  Games  of Games Workshop (ie Blood Bowl), and my beloved Battletech. There is very few game systems that I have not read or played and I'm always open to different games systems. Finding people to play it with is whole another issue. I have been a GM for a few games in our school dormitory. It all started with chess and I was able to get people to try out Heroquest. They loved it and we moved onto Star Wars Adventures of West End Games. Finally, the last few players who stayed with me got to try out Battletech. :-) The best memories I have of the gaming session? Due to the constant mathematical usage in the game, it enabled most of the players to move out from the special math level class and into the general level math. I was accused of helping my players doing their homeworks and cheating on take-home tests. I told the accusing teacher to make another one and test them. They all did better than the previous tests (as they put in more time with RPG games and Gaming sessions over the semester). So I have been playing MMO/Video Games to get my RPG fix in. I have been constantly coming up with new signs/pigden signs or even temporary signs for the various games systems I have played over the year for my local DM/GMs and players to communicate with me. Hence why I often choose to play boardgames with RPG aspects to it such as Blood Bowl and Battletech.  I'm looking forward to add signs to the world of RPG as I'm always trying to learn and create new signs for the world of STEM (Science, Technical, Engineering, and Mechanical).

2005 (March) - Working Hard at Play - Kestrel
by Hawke Robinson published May 14, 2018 last modified Jul 12, 2020 07:50 AM — filed under:
Many educators acknowledge the learning potential of out-of-school literacies. Here, I'd like to discuss the merits of roleplaying games (RPGs). The genre is very broad with games such as Star Wars, Call of Cthulhu, Lord of the Rings, and Stargate SG-1 produced by a variety of companies. The oldest formal roleplaying game is Dungeons & Dragons® which celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, in 2004. This is the best selling game of its type. Currently, there are over 4 million players worldwide, ranging in age from preteens to senior citizens. These are the players of the paper-based, book product, not the computer game variants. I'll draw my specific examples from the newest edition of the game (version 3.5 published in 2003), but the general points are applicable to any RPG.

Player Archetypes
by Hawke Robinson published Apr 30, 2018
There are a number of archetypes (stereotypes) that some players fall into. Most players progress through a few stages before they find their comfort zone, and can be influenced greatly by the GM type, and the fellow players. These may be inevitable developmental experiences to some extent, while others get "stuck" in stereotyped behaviors that can be a hindrance to the enjoyment of game play for the other participants.
