ok, so, its been a week, or 2 acutaly. so i guess it is time to change topic.

since things still seem to be a little bit slow due to the last harry potter book. and im seeing harry potter related stuff almoust everywhere, why dont we make it the weeks topic?

just one thing, please, if your drawing contains spoilers to the last book, place a warning and , insted of the image, a link to it. just in case someone who have not finished the book is watching.   ;)

soooo...ummmm.... when are we playing?  ???

i do.

it was pretty weird, cux i left mexico on thursday (the day harry potters movie started showing on the movietheaters) and then, i comeback to mexico on saturday ( the day the book came out! ) i didnt get to see the movie until yesterday.
as for the book, i was not as exited about it as i have been for the other ones, i dunno why but the waiting for this was diferent.
friday nigth i went out for dinner whit my brother and his family and his youngest son started to cry ( he is a 5 months baby ) so i took him out for a walk , and why not? to the bookstore (it was realy near, not a big one , a small one ). i was surprised to see all that people and the harry potter stuff and such, im used to things like that in big bookstores on mty, but it seem every small bookstore there was having his own harry potter party. that made me want to get the book now ! unfortunately, sale starts at midnigth and it was only 8 pm. and they gave me harry potter party things anyway  ;D ( posters and plastic magic wands and those sticks that glow when you movethem.) and a cute hat for the baby. so i kind of enjoi it any way. and got book next day, first thing in the morning before going to the airport.

i havent finished it, i feel nostalgic and dont want to. so im reading it as slowly as i can and still have 5 chapters to finish it.

took me like 15 min, the idea came from when i resived an ipod nano as b-day present. i was showing it to one of my closest friends and he told me he was saving money to buy his when they came whit camara, celphone, voice recorder, etc. and we started taking about the ipod of tomorrow, even smaller and whit a lot of feathures, and also about all those useless gadgets that makes us useless.
someday we wont know how to do anything, gadgets and electric things will do everything for us.

by the way,
dragyn : i find your poster pretty funny and creative, i would have never imagined it. XD

tickyhead: i luv your image, it is pretty cool. specialy your color choise. do looks futuristic.

a quick explanation of the WoD system, just in case anyone is interested:

your character is defined by traits, these represent your characters strengths and weakness. they are rated from 1 to 5 ( those are the little circles and dots). one is not to good , 5 is inhumanly perfect.
most of the time you combine the traits of an atributte ( something like how strong or inteligent or such, these are like capacities) whit one ability (these are things you can learn or get trought practice like driving or computers or to dodge or figth ). and get your dice pool (the number of dots is the number of dice (10 sided dice) you get). the more dice you get the more probabilities there are that you will succed. against the dificultie the storyteller decides is apropiate for the action you are trying to preform ( usualy something like 5-6) every dice avobe the dificultie number is a succes. the more of those you get the better. now, every 1 you get takes away one success, if you got more 1s than successes something bad happens ( not just you werent able to do it, you did it wrong ).  questions?

hope it helps

i like WoD system, it is simple, and it can be made simplier still. i find it quick and easy, dont takes time off the game.  Dyd has many sistems, depending on the edition and such, dont realy understand them, im not a DyD fan, but i have played a lot before and never ever got troubles because there is something i dont get.
When i started playing ( i was just entering secundaria (i think it is the equivalent level for americans Jr high) ) i didnt knew anything about rpgs or systems and was like, kind of fasinated whit the fact there were 10 or 20 sided dice. i learned to play playing, when i didnt understand something, someone else would explain.

as for the dices, there are many programs on the internet to do dice rolls, so we dont realy need dice fisicaly. ( dice some how are funny and help preparing a cool enviroment for the game, so i like to have a lot of them on the table when i play, but these are not nessesary.)

white wolf was buyed by wizards of the coast , and they decided, to end the world of darkness ( make the apocalipse ) and start a new WoD from the begining as part of WotC. this i was realy sad whit.
so part of the new Wod are : vampire the requiem ( inspired on vampire the masquarade, like a re-make of the game) , and also changeling: the lost . a new werewolf, mage, were made again to fit this new set of games.
i , personaly , dont like them. i like the old WoD and continue to play on it as if the end of the world has never happened.

the best advice i can give is to keep in mind this is just a game, it is for having fun. what ever happens in the game, dont take it personaly, its just a game.
Rules are made as guide lines, they are not the point on the game, so they can be ( and must be ) modified to fit the game, the players , etc. after all this is a game based on creativity and imagination.
Role playing games are about role playing , this means getting into a character and playing it. its not all about battles, yes, battles are interesting and fun to role play, but the point of the game IS NOT to win battles.
about stats and system, yes, they are important, but the game is not about them. they should help the game, not be the game.

if you want to play changeling ( the dreaming ) then, yes, i can be the storyteller, and would like to stick to a simplified ( to make things a bit more confortable on internet and for people whos new to the game) version of the game system and rules. and would also like it to be in a text chat, since this is not my first lenguage and my pronunciations is not correct, so im not sure if everyone can understand a word i say.
