I realized something today, browsing through Amber web pages. I can't take a campaign seriously when the trumps (for amber purposes, pictures of the characters) are photoshopped images of famous actors and actresses.

Maybe this makes me small minded, but I see a pic of Tom Cruise from MI:2, I have a hard time seeing that as an Amber character. It just seems to plastic and cardboard for Amber.

I'd rather see a poorly drawn trump in crayon than another celeb photoshopped to have green hair. Even playing with pictures of people who aren't famous can work; there's no predefined image/personality associated with the subject.

There is but one true RPG, of which all others are but Shadows.

There won't be any dark side here
Don't worry. I've learned my lesson.

I'll only play D&D if it actually involves role-playing, instead of computer-gaming. :-p

Re: Just play D&D Then
I think the complaint was about cardboard character conceptions... how does rolling dice to determine attributes help this???
