Howdy all. Updated my old character sheet for BFRPG and rereading the latest version of rules to see if BFRPG is going to be the base for my next campaign. It worked great years back for a campaign that used adventures from pretty much every version of a certain well known RPG.

G'day, to you all. Yes, another new one arrives armed with a question.....

Is there anywhere you can put your name down on the forum(s) to get involved in a play by post game ?

Howdy, howdy, howdy!

I've been interested in RPGs since my teens but only really gotten to play them in the past couple of years---I've played D&D 3/3.5, D&D 5E, Pathfinder 1 and 2E, Scion 2E, Dungeon World and Apocalypse World. I am also fond of Tenra Bansho Zero, though regrettably have not yet gotten to run it.

I am amazed at the sheer amount of content you folks have done for the love of the game so if ya'll don't mind I think I'll stick around for a while. :mrgreen:

Wow. I've been "here" two years but have never posted. Weird.

I began playing D&D in 1980 with OD&D. In 1981, I owned my first game, Moldvay Basic and then Marsh/Cook Expert and enjoyed playing that until we moved. In September 1983, my brother and I discovered the kids in our new town were playing AD&D, so we converted to that. After graduating in 1990, I found NO ONE played at either college I would attend (they were probably all hiding behind a secret door). That led to a 10-year gaming hiatus.

I resumed play in 2000 running 3e, then 3.5e (2003), then Castles & Crusades (2005), then OSRIC (2011), and AD&D again (2012). I then discovered and/or tried Swords & Wizardry (Light, Complete, Continual Light, Core, and White Box), Adventures Dark and Deep, Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea, and Adventurer Conqueror King System. Finally, in 2016, I purchased many of the BFRPG books, after watching a video review of it by Old Man Grognard. At last, I am getting a chance to run it as I am converting PCs from the (very short) BX and ACKS adventures over to it for my players to play. Our kids are 16, 5, and 3 and this will be the first PC/campaign for our daughter (the youngest).

I appreciate how malleable the system is and how it feels like Moldvay/Marsh/Cook BX D&D with some more options. I also like how easy it will be to continue my Greyhawk campaign despite changing the chassis on which the game runs.

Congrats to Chris G. and company for a winning system and game!
