A game I created, looking for people to play and give me feedback :)

"The Fugue system"

A simplistic rules system for any genre. The fugue system was created to allow a flowing story driven roleplaying experience, without a lot of dice rolls and calculations.
The fugue system uses a 2D6 + Skill  Or  attribute vs Target number for resolutions.

Welcome to the community.
I have been playing games since 1984. 
I created the "Fugue system" and "Daydream" games. I look forward to meeting you and gaming :)

Would anyone be interested in a one shot fantasy game with pre-gen characters using the "Fugue System"?

Role Playing & Storytelling  - 
 
I am working on a campaign for a friend, in the vein of haven/supernatural/x-files/spooksville/friday the 13th(tv series)/wearhouse 13... get it? hehe
Anyways, I a working off the idea of doing it via episodes. 
Adventure 1 would be just that a good adventure, but intertwined I will have startings of subplots, some that will materialize and complete in an adventure or two, others that are tip of the Iceberg and may take many adventures or the whole campaign to end. 

Have you done this before? What were some of the good and bad points to it? What did you learn from this type of gaming? 

I appreciate all of your feedback!

Reverse innovation.

Well, looks like the clunky old mouse driven interface that took 3-5 clicks to get to a program is coming back... the start menu.
With windows 8 I hit the windows key and type the name of the program I want, this is HIGHLY superior to mouse clicks. 

"Click start, all programs, office 2013, and now look for word", instead of " hit the windows key, type "word" and hit enter".

If there is a program I use often, I have it on the "taskbar" as a shortcut. Those that i use "a lot", as in every day, or multiple times a day are within the first 9 spaces on the taskbar, thus I can open them by hitting windows key plus there numbered space. 

What is gained by having the "start menu" coming back?

Maybe they will have it either way, that would be ok. But, just a start menu... is just not appealing to me at all.

"Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality. Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard." - Mozilla

This isn't about homosexuals, or those that oppose the lifestyle... It's about freedom of speech, thought and action.  Double-plus-bad.

I found a toggle in "about:flags" that allows this. Happy again!

Had the "Grizzly" chicken fried steak. They were nice enough to substitute the biscuits for pancakes. But, that is where the fun ended. I ordered coffee and didn't get one refill. We were there for over an hour and I failed to wave down a single worker. My hashbrowns were under cooked, I am not talking about "not brown enough", No, The potatoes were raw, and cold in the middle. We usually have great service and food hear. But, this trip, drops it from a 4 to a 3, and We will definitely think about other places.

Went in today with a LOT of questions. Each question was answered professionally and they are super friendly too. Got a starter kit, Evod and some juice.. "Strawberry" and "Peach watermelon cantaloupe" which is soooo good! Thank you ECBlend for letting me try the flavors first! Highly recommend stopping in!

Last two times, I have been sick after eating here. Last visit, the waitress wanted us to "Pay more", when my wife wanted Diet Pepsi and not DR. Pepper... Problem was, she never ordered a Dr. Pepper.. the waitress read .. "DP", on the pad incorrectly. The food is just Ok, compared to other places. You can easily get a better meal for less, in this town. the "all you can eat" portion doesn't help this place.

We had an amount sent to collections from the local utilities, because they decided to hold the account open 4 days after the day we cancelled the electric service. They also charged us $75.00 (parts/time/labor) to replace 2 light bulbs after we moved out. We were told when we moved in that a law in Oregon had passed and we would have to give 60 days notice prior to moving . I called the state office and found this to be completely untrue. If you have to rent from them, then beware, If you have other options, then go that route instead.
