The name’s Nyar. I am native Austrian, but prefer English in my RPGs.
I have been lurking for several months now. I used to be a passionate DM (about 10 years experience) and also tried my hand at worldbuilding – but then the whole ‘choosing between hobby and career’ thing happened. And then, a few months back, I suddenly realised that I hadn’t been playing in more than a decade, and that I really miss it.
I used to play primarily Planescape, Ravenloft, and Forgotten Realms (3e and 3.5), but also the occasional Call of Cthulhu one-shot. As a player I got to enjoy Shadowrun.
I am neurodivergent, and typically avoid people (because bad experiences). However, I had THE BEST OF TIMES when I was hanging out with a group, travelling through fictional worlds. Storytelling is something I just really, really love.
My personal Best DM Moment: After months of having lost all hope in Sigil, my party finally made it to the Outlands. They literally cried with joy at the scenery (and lack of miserable weather!).
I really hope to be able to connect with other RPG nerds here in Vienna, ideally finding a group for regular sessions. And now before I start ranting in Sigil cant, I’ll leave you all with a good night
I just wanted to use this for a big thank you to everyone I met tonight! I had lots of fun.
And it’s not just been my first RPG session in ages, but I also had my first human interaction (aside for therapists and the cashier at my store) in two years. I basically hid from the world for the last two years (PTSD), and… well, tonight was great. Thanks all!!!
