    I want to pick up an RP game. I've done Board, I've done Card, I've done Tabletop. I'm after something different. I want role-playing, but I also want "Roll" playing, if you get what I mean. The 2-3 I've been largely looking into are 'Dungeons and Dragons', of course, pretty much the best selling rpg out there, but I've also looked into Fantasy Flights 'Deathwatch' and 'Rogue Trader'. Would anyone recommend these, or could anyone recommend another Role-Playing game, and what makes that one the one you'd recommend. I look forward to hearing your responses.

    You lost me at "roll"

    I'm assuming you mean something different, but if you want a good RPG look into Fallout New Vegas, it comes out tomorrow.


    EDIT: Oh wait, this post is a fail, I didn't check which forum this was. Sorry I fail so much mate, I'm going to keep this up so you guys can laugh at my fail.

    Are you looking for a table top RP or a text based forum RP? If the former, I'd go with DnD. It's a good starting point. If the latter, go through the Forum Games forum here on RT. Find something you like.

    Tabletop. I've looked at DnD, but I don't know where to start. Far too many books for me to work out which is the base kit.

    First off, do you have a group to play with?

    Yes, depending on who actually decides to come on any day we decide to play, it would be between 6-8 people

    I'd try d20 modern, it's what my group started on and we picked it up pretty quick.

    Ha, sorry. What kind of campaign did you play? We used it for the zombie campaign.

    d20 modern is another rpg system made by Wizards based off of the core rules of DnD and involves apocalyptic scenarios. It's pretty simple and there aren't nearly as many books for d20 modern as there are for DnD.

    In all honesty, I've never actually played a proper game. Unfortunately, I don't have a group in my area. I'm just familiar with the basics of a DnD setup

    d20 modern has piqued my interest but WotC websites are ridiculously unhelpful. Anyone know anywhere better?

    I would say a local comic book shop, something along those lines. Try this site, it could be a bit helpful.

    If you don't want to buy a ton of books then go for something with lots of online resources. If you're happy to put the time in making up characters then you can just get a corebook and go with that.

    I've been GMing with the Star Wars d20 for a couple of years now. The sourcebooks are great but you can easily run an entire campaign with the basic rules and access to Wookiepedia.
