Far be it for to suggest that a d6 could be manufactured with a piece of hexagonal card and a cock-tail stick...

I'm not too familar with the games that have been mentioned, but am happy to give anything a go! If peeps are planning on using IRC, then I could do with some recommendations on clients to use.

Did that at the Crite for one of the WW2 War Council meets: beer mat and a feather. Worked a treat and we were all proud of our spinner. Then one of the guys had the temerity to turn up with a d6 in his pocket.

As stated, I'm not interested in WoD, SW, anything d20, nor Supers but will give most other things a try at least once. Smile

I use mIRC htp://www.mirc.co.uk but you can, depending on which network we pick on to play on, use a java aplet that most networks link to from their sites.

All I-KPs suggestions sound interesting. The only one I ama bit dubious about is the BritFlik one.... Though I am open to coersion.... Smile But we'll see whether anyone else wants to run anything and go from there. All others ok by me Smile

I know I've been a bit quiet recently as well, but has this died the death?

NCsoft, Marvel Settle City of Heroes Suit
Marvel Entertainment, publishers of a wide array of comic books such as Spider-Man, X-Men, and The Hulk, has announced that it has settled its suit with NCsoft and Cryptic Studios, respective publisher and developer of superhero-themed MMORPG City of Heroes. The lawsuit, first filed over a year ago, originated over Marvel's complaints that the game's robust character creation toolkit allowed users to violate Marvel superhero copyrights with lookalike characters and powers.

Though copyright violation is forbidden in the City of Heroes terms of service, Marvel sought to protect its intellectual property in order to prepare for the coming launch of its own MMORPG, to be published by Microsoft in 2007, and due to compete against a DC Comics MMO in development at Sony Online Entertainment and also due out somewhere in that timeframe.

Marvel and NCsoft did not disclose terms of the settlement, but the result appears to allow NCsoft's games -- both City of Heroes and City of Villains, the expansion released in the interim -- to proceed unhindered, allowing players to create characters as they wish, without physical restrictions on what characters look like.

A statement released by NCsoft says that "...no changes to City of Heroes or City of Villains character creation engine are part of the settlement. The parties have agreed that protecting intellectual property rights is critically important and each will continue aggressively to protect such rights in accordance with all applicable laws. […] All parties agree that this case was never about monetary issues and that the fans of their respective products and characters are the winners in this settlement."
