    Well, since people are wandering in, I will too. Lots of fond memories dwell here. :D

    So just sharing, I've been working at a two player (player and GM) tabletop version of NESing, taking inspiration from different things here. It's still very early in development, but may end up being a lot of fun.

    Randomly thought of NESing today - been nearly a decade since I was here. Hello old friends - I even see some names I recognize :).

    Would love to game or play with anyone from the old NES days. PM me if interested - I've run some forum games offsite a few times.

    What's up Luckymoose and Birdjaguar :)

    Also check out IOT, which is the same thing and where all the running games are GMd by old time NES people.

    I was just reading on some history lately. We basically invented DnD for history. Then added dice and stats. Good times...

    And while you all were sleeping I reenlisted for another Tour of Duty and was assigned...IOT and NES among my touch points. :D

    I'm from the internet; I'm here to help!

    @Luckymoose thank you. I truly loved my time NESing. How are you and what's going on in your life?

    Just gauging interest, but would anyone be interested in a classical "tabula rasa" GodNES if one was started on the thread?

    I've thought about giving GMing a second shot a few times after my initial attempt failed due to lack of player interest (and being too soon after Mythopoeia) but seeing TMG's project approaching its initialisation stage (he's started a thread for it on the NES discord) has brought the idea back to the surface. I don't want to start an NES however only to have a dearth of active players again result in its demise ...

    I'm doing fairly well. I'm still, I wouldn't say recovering, but actively taking it easy to prevent a hernia or something from my kidney donation I did near Christmas. Strenuous activity still puts the hurt on me.

    Congratulations on providing someone with a kidney! Do go slow with the strain until you are fully healed. I've been sliced and diced twice in the past 4 years and not rushing the recovery is a good thing. :)

    Are you still in GA?

    Yeah, I tried too much about 8 weeks post-op and thought I had an incisional hernia, so I have backed way up since then. The kid needed one, and now he's got one. No regrets.

    Unfortunately, lol.
