Free Form Player Listings

Free Form Player Listings

The purpose of this thread will be for those who like to play Free Form to come and make themselves known to other Free Formers. I personally believe if, 'we who love no rules', can get to know one another or at least know we are not alone since we are a rare breed, then perhaps more free form games we love so much can become more common place. I believe one of the problems for us is that many don't feel its worth their time to make a game since they see so few or none of their fellow free formers. Well I hope this little thread might change that.

So what I would like is for any free former who sees this to just make a simple post acknowledging themselves as a free former and then list the systems you like and or any plot/idea/ w/e else you like that isn't necessarily a system (keep in mind any system can be made rule less, so if you just adore Forgotten Realms, then list it). I will then keep a running tab in this original post of those who have mentioned themselves to make it easier on people, so they do not have to look through all the posts. Hopefully if we get enough people, then maybe we can get more games going and get some of those timid GM's or players to get more active. (If you want to be generic in how you list interests then feel free. Generic is fine, as many are willing to play any fantasy setting or any sci-fi setting regardless of how its done, or at least like enough that generic suits it)

Important Edit: I do not mean to imply only pure Free Formers need make themselves known, I mean anyone who loves Free Form please make themselves known.

Oh important note, when I list a players likes, whether generically or not, I am being very brief, and might not include some details. Thus if you wish to know more, if more is available, then go ahead and look for their post to see what they said. I am listing people as they post, so it should make it easier to find them if you look for them in order as they are posted below.

Since I started this, I will put my name down first.

Current Open Free Form Planning or Game Ads

As the name implies these are games that currently are open. I will remove the link once the game has been closed.

EpicLevelRic's Game

This is an interesting idea. Truly, the lack of a greater freeform activity here has stopped me from beginning quite a few games already, in fear of lacking players to actually, y'know, play the games. Still, over the months that I have spent on this marvellous site, I've come to know quite a few freeformers, so I know that they are out there, lurking for games that can provide them with their freeform fix. However, if we keep to the shadows, we'll only restrict the freeform games that are run over here; I wouldn't be surprised if newcomers to the site gave up on their freeform projects because of lack of interest. So, speak up, people! Let us make ourselves known! (:

My interests in freeform are virtually anything, especially if it relates to medieval fantasy (ie. your usual DnD game). I could be persuaded to try and play other styles, like sci-fi, modern-ages games, etc etc, but medieval fantasy is really my greatest passion.

I love free form and roleplaying, I usually play medieval fantasy, but I don't mind playing anything at all... but I really really like creating my own worlds with their own types of magic, etc etc

Awesome, keep it coming people. I can already name 3-4 more people off the top of my head who play Free Form and have not posted yet, but I will wait and see if they post, as I do not know a complete list of their likes.

Silver makes a good point as well, we cannot hide in the shadows, that will only mean the death of Free Form on this site. Most Free Form games that make it to the Game Advertisement forum die or get very little attention, many never make it out of the Interest Thread in the first place.

It's been a while since I've free-formed but it's nice to see people are still interested in it! As for setting/system etc I'm usually willing to learn a system if the story/plot interests me enough (and have on more than one occasion).

Really though? A GM with an open mind who has a real passion for running their game and working with the players trumps setting and genre and what not. The most epic story in the world becomes boring if the GM seems uninterested.

I agree. A game's success depends only on the GM's and the players' willingness to create an interesting and evolving story. Everything is secondary to that. (:

*Raises hand* I think talking about the "death of freeform" is a little too dramatic, but I like the idea behind this list. Pagos also wants to be added. I've included a chat log below.

-chuckles- I was not implying its dead, but meant more to imply it can die if people just sit in the background hoping it will come to them. Its my impression on this site that not enough people know other people and thus they feel its worthless or darn near to try and do Free Form. This is also a personal attempt on my part to try and rouse more interest on this site for Free Form. I want more free form! -laughs- Though this will benefit many others besides me, of course.

Oh you didn't list what you liked, although its not truly necessary, just a nice heads up for any looking at the list.

Keep it up people! We have 6 people, 7 including me already! And its only been and hour and a half since I started this thread and those that I know who like free form, besides two already on the list have not posted yet... so I know there are more of us out there.

Perhaps we should try to make some sort of free form campaign together, I'm a pretty hyper poster, I'm online almost everyday and willing to post more than 1 time per day.
