Hi,
Me and some of my mates are planning on starting up a group in Timaru, there are four of us and at the moment, we're planning on playing DnD 4e, we don't have much experience with playing DnD table top, but most of us have experience with DnD based PC games such as Neverwinter Nights and the likes. If anyone in the area is interested, we could use a couple more people, especially with DM experience, or keen to have a go at it.

We've also discussed trying other systems once we get going

Cheers,
jbcolliar

If you are all newbies - might be better off trying a rules like system..like HERO 6.0

Good luck! It will be a blast. If I can be of any help over these forums let me know. I have some experience with 4e, GMing and doing both with newbies.

Yeah, HERO 6.0 is a lot like a set of rules. Wink

Mongoose Runequest 2 is a much better and user friendly skill set.

Better and friendly than Heroquest 6 is not saying much. Its like you are damning MRQ2 with faint praise.

Would you like a 1 page argument or the 2 page argument?
