Collectible Card Games / Any Doomtown Reloaded Players?
« on: July 28, 2015, 01:22:09 PM »
With no "Living Card Game" sub-forum, posting this here.

Looking for other Doomtown Reloaded players in the Moose Jaw/Regina area.

I am a long time player of the original Doomtown CCG and just recently picked up Reloaded, which on a first read and play through was a lot of fun.

Lance - IMHO; 5th is a love letter to 1st/2nd edition with a little garnish from 3rd and 4th added in. I'm curious, what about 4th did you find that hampered/setback role-playing?

Set back?
 - to go from 3.5 where if you wanted to play ___ with levels of ____ that could do ____ = no problem
 - in 4.0 = no can do

Moved this to a new thread to avoid further topic hijacking

Lance, I understand the point you're making but would argue that this falls under having more or less mechanical options for characters which tends to be more of a character optimization issue instead of a role-playing one.

All you need for good role-playing is a clear vision of your character and a GM/group that is willing to engage in some shared story telling - all any given rule set provides is a frame work for the action.

I think the slow creep away from RPing in some of the D&D groups I've seen started with 3rd editions lengthy skill list. As an example, I've run events at stores where players fell back on "I roll my diplomacy" instead of engaging an NPC in actual conversation, which is (imho) the essence of role-playing.

Greetings All,

I'm starting a new 5E D&D campaign in Moose Jaw and could use a few more players. Looking for 2-3 more reliable people. All kinds of players and personalities are welcome, my only expectation is that you are dependable. The current plan is to run sessions on Saturday nights starting at 7pm and going till a reasonable time for all involved - other nights could be an option once the campaign gets going (and depending on people's schedules).

If you're interested, please contact me either on this website or send me an email at

Hoping to get started very soon, this Saturday or the following one.
