The only advantage I see in playing here in Frankfurt am Main is, what I am
more familar with the location. That is the reason why my campaign is
located in the Seattle, becaus its far away :-) But my GM has a different

I started with this group of players a year ago. There a only two players of
my last group (the last group breaks apart because of personal problemes
between the players) and I had so much ideas for the last campaign that I

I assume you have seen that I don't have much love for FanPro and there
translations (expecialy the BT Stuff). We can hope that they a growing with
that challenge :-)

super-samurai-vampire-mage, brrr
With other words, would the read the posts? I think not ;-)


P.S.: I guess it would be better to cease that topic befor GridSec thwarp us
for that ongoing discussion. You can replay privedly to me at
