Looking for Players - San Francisco
I'm looking for players who would like to try a semi-regular campain. I am new to the EP rulebook but I've read all the Stross and Morgan and Doctrow books that feed this universe.
Style as DM: My last game was a time-travel scenario using the d20 modern rules that ran for almost a year, we killed the mind-hacker who created Jack the Ripper and fought zombies the the trenches of WWI. So I might trend towards the wacky but I have no problems with horror. I take a lot of player input into consideration so if you come with an interesting background / motivation I'm happy to feature that into the main plot. I really love unspooling a mystery over several sessions and this setting offers so many opportunities for plot twists. What happened to your alpha fork after you were backed up...? I try to feature interesting settings for combat situations where the terrian is as much an impact as the opponents. I try to craft scenarios that require the involvement of all the PCs, like a good heist movie everyone has a key part ot play. I sometimes create problems with no obvious path to take and let the players figure it out. I steal shamelessly from popular media.
Looking for players who: Are more interested in crafting an exciting shared story than maxing their stats and hoarding credits. Don't roll their eyes when it's time to look up the combat rules again. Don't make a habit of flaking out at the last minute.
Scheduling: I'd prefer to play in person. I live on the west side of San Francisco but am looking for card-shops / gamescape type locations to meet in for starters. I think 2-3 hours is the sweet spot for a single gaming session but am open to opinions. Weeknights are probably ideal but I'm open. Once or Twice a month is as often as I can swing. I think it's more important to have all the players available at the same time.
Other than that I'm just a regular guy who works in an office downtown, has a wife, and totally won't steal your organs or anything.
I've got a starter adventure ready to go. Hired by a wealthy asteroid miner you've been sent to investigate a freighter bound for the Jovian Repbublic, where something has gone horribly wrong.....
So speak up if you'd like to play, I have a few buddies who are interested but no firm commitments yet.
