    Roll Call : Active RM Campaigns via FG

    I'm somewhat curious to know how many active Rolemaster campaigns there are using FG for on-line play.

    My curiosity is partially driven by the desire to add a RM game into my schedule if I can.

    It would however been nice to know what the user base is for the Rolemaster rules here on FG.

    Currently GMing:
    * Yggsburgh and Castle Zagyg - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Monday | Friday)
    * ToEE - Castles and Crusades Greyhawk (Thursday)
    * AD&D Bandit Kingdoms (Friday)
    * AD&D (Saturday)

    Thanks for 8+ years of gaming via FG my friends (AD&D 2e / 3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5e).

    I am running a campaign.

    I have 4 consistent players and 2 casuals. I also lost a player cause he moved overseas (you know who you are <wink>)

    Every fortnight it happens only two of the current players came from FG.

    Running one I started in PF and after 2 sessions converted to RM . me as GM and 3 players. We are all RL friends (one is my wife). I am the only one active here on the forum. Played 4 sessions in RM atm.

    Is that the kind of info you wanted?

    I am also running a game. It is mostly a face to face game but I have had people connect over the internet when they haven't been around for the game. My group has 6-7 players. We just recently switched to RMU from RMC.

    I have a regular game going with five players, all but one player coming from FG forum. Had two resignations but signed up two more pretty quickly.

    I will be joining a new game shortly as a player, first through Google hangouts - but the GM is doing the prep work to transfer over to FG soon.

    Just purchased FG & Rolemaster this weekend. Going to be awhile before I'm able to figure out all these interesting options I now have.
    Hopefully I'll be able to play/GM something over the net.

    Since I started the thread, I suppose I should add that I GM a game that has eight players right now. Very happy with the RM rules implementation on FG.

    Appreciate it. So far I've been pretty surprised. I expected it to be a flashy excel sheet with dice. Instead I discovered an extremely complex labor of love with so many options that I wonder how we never had these back in he 80s. Every system should have virtual rules.

    Spent some time making a couple NPCs for my next campaign. The level of detail is awesome for players, but it does make me wonder if there is a less detailed way of making my red shirt victims to help the party.
