    NickEast : Welcome here. Just read back to see what is going on.

    Any news? Is this RPG project dead?

    It kind of looks that way as there is almost complete silence. But they have a forum since, I believe, early this month that seems to be reasonably active. There are just very few members (around 10 or so, including admins and moderators, and me now), so it's not particularly bustling with activity.

    I have joined too as a sign of support. The presence of the Goa'uld must be felt in every corner of the internet.

    I liked that background painting on their website. As you could see I can be pleased with simple SG related art work. I believe I have suggested such things before that if they could make a few dozens planet photos then it could be used as a visual guidance of any adventure module.

    So the project is still alive. And they are recruiting mission writers too.

    Yep, but the forum is still not very active. And I don't have a group, nor any real experience with TTRPGs. So I don't feel like I'm the right person for playtesting or writing missions (not yet at least). I'm currently spending a lot of time on getting Star Trek Adventures to work. And solo play isn't really the common ("proper") way to play, so playtesting the game that way would skew the results.

    They are probably looking for experienced players, though as a n00b I should add that it's imperative that everyone knows what they're doing.

    So, it should at least be a diverse group... but since I have no RPG-friends or heck even a group of people, I'd be out of the range anyway.

    I'd have to solo-play. In that regard, I'd likely not buy the game for it would just be collecting dust on my shelf anyway, much like D&D is doing.

    You folks need more faith in yourselves.
    Sometimes going into a game "blind" is far more helpful and constructive than knowing "all the rules".
    Me, I'd be going into the system and try to break it, see how the rules interact and where they fall down, a noob however will look at what they can create simply based on whether a system can fulfil what they imagine as a character.
    Both are relevant, and useful for games design, don't sell yourselves short.

    YES.
    30 years and more "wood" (trophies) than I care to count has taught me that.
    Players play a game, designers want to know how the game works, and breakers BREAK systems.
    None are more or less important, and none are "inferior" to the other.
    I'm a breaker, I want to take your system to it's limits and see what snaps. I'm also a RPG'er, been doing it since I was 8, and then running games at conventions, be it D&D, Call of Cthulhu, James bond or systemless design to tell a STORY.
    Point being, it's the STORY that works.
    I can break your system, I can't break your story, and I don't want too.

    Those who are saying they'd have no-one local to play with, it's going to be really easy to setup your own playgroups online through Discord and etc. It's not going to be a problem. I imagine that's how I'm going to play this one.

    True fact: I'm always a little disappointed when the system is without faults or I'm unable to break it.

    Probably didn't try hard enough.

    A Gateworld group... perhaps...

    Finding a group isn't really a problem. It's getting together regularly, and getting used to each other, that may be difficult. Especially for me.

    That said, I have an RP server originally set up with a couple of people to roleplay in a collaborative world. It has been quiet over there, so I could repurpose the server to include multiple games, starting with Stargate. Then people can join if they're interested, and see if they want to play. I personally have enough material to spare for many Stargate adventures, and various tools to organize it. I also have a VTT* that doesn't require anyone other than me to pay for it, I just need to implement the Stargate system (but D&D 5e is already in there, so the basics work).

    *A VTT (Virtual TableTop) is a tool that makes online roleplaying as if you're sitting around a table, and provides tools to simplify many things, such as keeping track of all the statistics. I'm using Foundry VTT, which is self-hosted and requires only the person hosting the server to pay for it. But it's still in Beta and doesn't have a lot of systems implemented. Thankfully, I'm a programmer and I'm already busy with implementing Star Trek Adventures, so Stargate is no problem.

    Ah, well that's a whole other problem. I struggle with people early on as well, and tend to stick to the online social groups I know. Or if there's someone in them I know, I'm alright.

    A VTT is going to be better. I don't think the traditional old fashioned RP forums/servers are going to be the best platform for something like this. We've been using Roll20 for the Alien stuff we've run online and it's going well enough. But we're switching to rolling in person (it's just more fun!) rather than the rolling facilities online.

    I also prefer physical dice. Dice rollers are nice if you need to roll larger dice pools and don't want to spend too much time rolling them all and calculating the results. For Foundry I'll be coding a mod that intercepts any dice roll and opens up a dialog where you can enter the results of physical dice rolls. So you still have all the benefits of a dice roller, but use physical dice rather than the random number generator.

    So as I mentioned three posts up, I have an RP server that I intended to use with a couple of people to try something. It's relatively quiet there, so I was thinking about reorganizing the server to focus on more RPGs that I'd like to play with a group. This would add Stargate, Star Trek, and perhaps D&D 5e. If any would-be roleplayers are interested to join me, feel free to ask and I will start renovating and send out invities.

    I'll post this on the Stargate RPG forum as well.

    Discord invite has been added to my signature. Please bear in mind that it's all still under construction, so not everything may be working 100%.

    Must install Discord again first.
    To say, must install it on my other tablet/PC (and the PC I still have to buy one of these days and keep postponing for unknown reasons).
