I'm not keen on the idea of online ones.

The current online ones are rubbish.  I'm signed up to the Lord of the Rings one, but it's largely a way to socialise with my sister (she loves it) rather than for any enjoyment derived from the game.

There have been very few acceptable computer game RPG's in recent years; nothing decent since Morrowind, Baldur's Gate and Torment.

Table-top RPG's I've played a bit of Call of Cthulhu (you'd never guess) as well as Vampire Masquerade and AD&D in my time.


I never took to Baldur's Gate. I like Phantasy Star, or whatever it was called. I basically liked the old 1 wizard, 1 hero, 1 mage and a knight type of RPG.

My son's mad about Morrowind, although he's only got Morrowind III and extension packs at the moment.

Morrowind III is the best one; it's old (by current standards) but far better than Oblivion (Morrowind IV).  It remains one of my favourite games ever.

Tell him not to both with Oblivion, he'll probably be disappointed.

I could never see the point of RPGs. I have a friend who is addicted to them, will still be on a net based game until three or four in the morning.

I suppose reading is my main pastime, but forums come close. I suppose forums are a kind of RPG in a way, I get the chance to expose (sometimes inadvertently) aspects of my nature that would at least surprise and at worst horrify my friends!

It's all me, but we all have various aspects to our natures.

What have I done as hobbies over the past 65 years (in no specific order)? Microscopy, photography, model making, electronics, DIY, silver jewellery work, writing, reading (sci-fi mainly), rock climbing, caving, skin diving, parasailing, programming (BASIC), voluntary work . . .

Reading and forum haunting are probably the two main ones now.

I did get sort of hooked on "The Hobbit" on my old Specky, ended up with charts hung on the walls and the ability to get 80% of the way through the game on memory alone. There was a point with a glitch in the prog, The warning was flashed on the screen so fast you never got a chance to work out what you had done wrong   I even got a few friends to watch with me in an attempt to gather as enough bits of the message to put the whole thing together - no luck!

But that was a trial of logic rather than reaction and I quite enjoyed it.

Thorin sits down and starts singing about gold.
