For newbies, I thought I'd mention the history of the Red Box Black Peaks (we have more than one now —cr0m) game so far.
It's a sandbox game, inspired by New York Red Box and Ben Robbins' West Marches. So far I've run it for two main groups, one in Seattle made up of some old gaming buddies, and one in Vancouver made up of some friends in Vancouver. There's also some on-again, off-again players in Vancouver that join up with the core group from time to time.
Check out the house rules for more. If you're looking to play, just join a game or show up at one of the public games I'll be running in the future (notices in the Scheduling forum). We do char gen at the table, so everyone can curse/mock your fantastic/dismal luck. :)
Welcome! Introduce yourself and let's roll some dice!
