Doctor Who Roleplaying Game ? Tea in the Tardis anyone !
abarbarian posted a topic in The Restaurant at the Edge of the UniverseDoes anyone fancy a game ? It would be easy to organise a cloud/Dropbox folder accessible by players for storing the game files. I was thinking of something like ZIM which is cross platform and easy to use for all the game instructions and gameplay. A chat program would be might be useful aswell so that folk could talk about the throw of the dice or the Gamemasters decisions. I was thinking of Hex-Chat but am not sure if it is cross platform. Playing the game would be simple. Discuss here in a thread a game and characters and decide on a Gamesmaster. Create a online folder containing ZIM. The Gamemaster issues instructions updates the folder and posts a notification in the forum thread. As each player takes a turn they record their actions in ZIM and updates the folder and posts a notice in the forum thread. Talk about the game could either be in the forum thread or in a chat program which ever folk feel is the best way. Players would not need to make instant decisions though they could if they wanted to. As folk have different calls on their time responding to the game would be to suit the player with say a 48 hour limit on turns. That is the basic outline if anyone is interested. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/doctor-who-rpg-books We could either get one copy of the game or each buy a copy the Humble folk support some good causes so I do not mind the individual copy route.
50 years ago !
abarbarian posted a topic in The Restaurant at the Edge of the UniverseSo what were you doing around this time 50 years ago ? Me I was watching the JFK drama and bemoaning the fact that I was not allowed to watch Dr Who. I missed the re run in 1981 so I had to wait till this week to watch it for the first time. an it was good. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03jprm9 Well worth the wait. Good old auntie beeb also commissioned a special called An Adventure In Time And Space which showed how the Dr series all started. A pretty interesting program and well worth a watch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01kqt9x Also this week we had the 50th anniversary special episode of Dr Who. It was a little complicated I guess for non fans but I thought it was very good. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01l1z04 An there was a little extra fillip, The Night of The Doctor, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01lhhv4 Strange how time tide and buttered eggs go on forever. ‘It all started out as a mild curiosity in a junkyard,’ he remarked of his own travels to his early companions, adding, ‘And now it's turned out to be quite a, quite a great spirit of adventure, don't you think?’ Dr Who 1963.
