Thanks to All RPGRM Members From the Grey Council

It's was a great year in 2008, especially the 4th quarter, as the number of new games started has taken off, and new members have been pouring into the site. The trend has continued into the 1st quarter of 2009, and we'd like to thank all of you for helping to make this place great!

There's a lot going on, so this is going to be a lengthy listing, but if you check below for "What I want to Play" you'll see a list of games suggested by players, looking for a GM. . .this has been highly successful in the last few months. . .nothing inspires a GM more than knowing theres a group of players passionate enough to be requesting a particular system/genre/concept to be run. . .so join one of the active games, or one of the open recruits waiting to start or if you're looking for something in particular, post a request into the "What I want to play" thread and see if you're not alone.

We currently have 40 active games on:

Characters start as human but will be changed during game play as Darkness touches their lives.
