GM and occasional player but I haven't been conducting a T2K game in years as the last game I ran over last summers was a star Wars (three days game). Don't ask; I kill players in Star Wars (that last game ended in the Empire winning over my PCs, Oops), so guess about T2K . I don't have time to play IRL for now and no time to play online. However, I remain very interested in that game and work on designing my own stuff based on it with some addition from Dark Conspiracy (it fits my potential players better). Therefore, I find our little conversation very instructive. T2K remains almost unknown in France and I found this to be a pity.

Haven't played for a good few years now...I guess I class myself as a writer, primarily of UK reference material...it's doubtful if any of it will ever be used in a campaign (certainly not one that I'd be involved in), so my next logical step would be to move on to writing fiction based around it....if I ever complete it that is...

Online GM and online player. I am always on the lookout for a face to face campaign but alas, those are pretty scarce, all the players seem to live in the Frisco area or Oz dang it! With a few scattered throughout the rest of the world.

But, look at the yahoo groups and I either GMed or played or lurked in 90% of them.

FtF GM for Twilight when its my turn to run a game for our group, player in a variety of games when its other peoples turn to run. Trying hard to talk one of our other GM's into running a T2K game that I can play in.

Well, I suffer the eternal and very usual "Curse of the GM". As a good friend once told to me: "You will referee the games you would like to play". And here I am, "working" as a GM with three different groups. Always "in person", I don't know the experience of an online RPG game.
Usually I organize sessions of Traveller: TNE, Twilight:2000 (v2.2), GURPS (3ED) and, more sparsely, Star Wars (D6 system). GURPS only for ancient or medieval adventures or campaigns.
Although I have a few Twilight modules and I'm wishing to use it in an RPG session, I'm in the habit of write my own adventures and campaigns. A good source of headaches for me. And a good source of satisfaction, too.

Default Been Tooo Long!

I have ref'd a few campaigns and played a few also. Back when I was still in the army I ref'd the "American" campaign and a friend did the "European" one. I haven't played in about 4 years, 2 of my players went to sand land to do the real deal, and I did a year of Homeland Security mission.
I have converted some Morrow Project and WWII vehicles to T2K stats. I used a Morrow project team as NPC's in "Armies of the night". I am thinking of starting out a small FTF group in the near future.

I listed myself as a GM in the poll even though I haven't actually run a T2K game in almost 15 years. Still, that's more recent than the last time I was a player, which would have been 1986 or 87. My interest in the game has come and gone over the years, for various reasons, primarily because most of that time I just couldn't find people to play it, or because we were playing some other game, or just not having the time to get into T2K.

Anyway, a little over a year ago I wound up at some little store in a nearby town, and there was a shelf of out of print RPG products. As I'm going through the stack, mostly the 1st and 2nd edition D&D books I expected would be there, I start seeing Twilight 2000 books, several of which I didn't have (yet). Normally, I consider the phrase "pleasant surprise" to be a contradiction in terms, but I guess there's an exception for everything.
To make the story short, I spent what I had in my wallet, and approximately doubled my T2K collection. Still a few things missing, but give it time....

Well, I could say more, but maybe that's better is other threads. And, I'd hate for my FNG post to be too longwinded.

Started out with D&D, moved on to Traveller, Boot Hill, Morrow Project, Robotech and T2K...currently running FTF-T2K with a couple of neighbors and cousins and a couple of online games as well.

And yes my better half keeps threatening to have a major house-cleaning and move my RPG junk out to the barn...
