I would rather use some kind of voice solution, I have tried typing and it doesn't work for me.

IRC doesn't allow for audio.

Stickam does, but it is buggy.

Well I am down for whatever, and will acquiesce to anyone who's actually tried it online.

Do we want to look at "teams"?

So far we have signed up:
wastrel
DarthCaitSith
Karyn
Black Magic
parallellines

For later:
pandamonium
SimmaDonna

Any volunteers to run the game?

Just noticed this thread. I'm so in. I haven't played for a while, but I used to play call of cthulhu and paranoia.

If you want to throw me into the signed up category, I have enough time for once a week sessions. I just need a heads up on which game to try to find on Amazon used for cheap.  I have in the past played, in addition to D&D: Shadowrun, Vampire, DC Heroes, and Top Secret (I think that is what the spy game was called).

Edit:...oh, and I have played Paranoia once or twice though I can't say that I am that interested in that.

We need someone to volunteer to run a game. They would get to choose what game system they are willing to run. I am familiar enough with D&D 2,2.5,3,3.5 and 4 to run them if no one else wants to run. But, I am really interested in playing in a game, as I am already running a D&D 4 game IRL.

Before I am the last person to decline and end up GMing by default, I simply do not have the time. I have time to randomly post on the board, but not to come up with anything interesting to play. I would love to play, but my adventures will be something like...

OK, I edited the OP to include the current player lists.

It looks like DCS or Karyn will run a game in a pinch, but would prefer not to.

I flat out can't, it has been so long since I've played anything no one would like it, trust me.

I would have no problem running the game - except I have absolutely no idea how... I had a semi-friend in high school who was a GM the group of friends he hung out with - he tried explaining to me wtf it is he does... then I tried to get our C++ teacher to let us (as a class) play it. :P .... But it didn't happen :(

I'd be willing to co run a game to take some of the pressure off.
