    These guys are brothers, one has never had a girlfriend (from what I know) in his life.
    He's in his 30's and I think he's still a virgin.

    The other is somewhat unstable, needs medication and they both have attachment problems.
    Fun guys but they act like a second spouse.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I LARP when I get the time.

    No, not the kind involving foam weapons and wooded areas.

    I prefer to be a player too, but I ran a game for a few years and enjoyed it very much.

    All I ever had to do to make a gaggle of players squirm nervously in their seats was walk into a room and shut the door.

    I used to be a d20 guy until we scored the license to publish AfterWorlds as a supplement for HARP Sci-Fi. That caused me to get very heavily into HARP and eventually Rolemaster. Seeing the level of detail and the sheer elegance of those games makes me wish I'd gotten into them earlier-- back when I had a few thousand dollars' worth of AD&D 2e.

    I ran a Rolemaster campaign for a while back in the late 80's, or maybe it was early 90's. It is an intresting system. I liked the critical hits tables in particular, some of them were hilarious.

    I know what you mean. I wish I had all the money I sunk into AD&D and other systems to put into Hero. I want to wish you luck with your book. It's a long, hard road to get a book published.

    Well, luckily, I have just about everything published for Rolemaster now. The only thing I'm missing are the original 2e Rolemaster Companions. It's just the missed opportunities to play with such a robust system when it was easier to get players to learn new systems...

    When I was putting together a HARP game a couple of years ago, I mentioned that it was based on Rolemaster and one of my players said "Cecil, don't take this the wrong way, but you're the only person I know that I can picture playing Rolemaster." Damned near broke my heart.
