A positive note

How about instead of concerning ourselves with the industry, we concern ourselves with promoting this game.

In that spirit, I would like this thread to write about Alternity games being played either in person or by e-mail.

I think this would be a very beneficial to the people who look at this board!!!

As long as "promoting this game" does not mean "bashing other games or systems," I can live with that.

Then agreed.

I am trying to join an Alternity PBEM game.

I would like it to be Dark Matter, but I am not fussy.

I will keep you all updated with how it is going.

Please feel free to share your stories.

Right, well, I am currently engaged in the single most enjoyable campaign I have ever been involved in as a player (sorry, GM's vanity).

Based on the novels Schismatrix and Schismatrix Plus by Bruce Sterling, we have blundered into a pivotal role in the future of human society, although my own character is so fixated on personal vengeance and vindication he hasn't really noticed yet.

The Schismatrix is a transhuman cornucopia, dominated by the hypercapitalist cyborg Mechanists, and the bioware-obsessed neo-fascist Shapers. A smattering of elusive and enigmatic alien species complete the setup, as Humanity struggles to set a course for its collective destiny and ensure its survival in a Universe suddenly bigger and scarier than they at first suspected.

With the horrors of war behind, bereft of their home planet (an irradiated wasteland), and with the prospect of new war threatening on the horizon, it's a jumpy place, and a crucible in which the mettle of its inhabitants is tested to destruction every day.

I've recently joined a game over on the Real D&D/d20 Adventures thread. Someone started an Alternity game and so far it's been great. This is my first time playing in the Alternity Stardrive universe and so far so good, I think I've only been shot once so far.

Check it out if ya have time.
Also it's an open game so anyone can join in just PM Coyote Skyheart, he's the GM.
