Depends on what system you plan to run, what venue you'll be using (AIM, Skype, a chat site) and when you plan to run it. I might be interested.

If you're going to run it online, you should look intoroll20.net.  It's video/chat isn't the most reliable thing in the world, but even the basic (free) membership is pretty cool, and it works for any system.

"I'm not frightened about death. I don't know why, but I just feel that at a certain moment your switch is switched off, and that's it. And you can't do anything about it."

Hmmm, yes 1d20 is a good site.  And also to R.U. Sirius all of those things will depend on what people are interested in.  I have a lot of ideas and am confident that I can make something good for a lot of different systems.

I'm primarily a GURPS player, but I have experience in the d20 system (Pathfinder and d20 Modern).
Still can't think of a signature a year later.

I'm most familiar with White Wolf's Storyteller/Storytelling system, but I've read and liked the Pathfinder book.

I'm willing to try out just about any system short of F.A.T.A.L. That said, I'm most fond of D&D 3.5 and 4.0 and GURPS.
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

I actually just finished telling a Pathfinder story to one of my friends on Facebook. I can recount it here (behind a spoiler tag, since it's huge) if anyone wants to hear it.

Long story short, a rotating DM game goes wildly off the rails and more than a little creepy when the worldbuilder's creepy, slightly pedophilic cousin gets involved. Including such feats as:

* Trying to play D&D like The Elder Scrolls IV, including its style of stealth.

* Inability to understand time.

* Attempted sexual assault on a barbarian.

* "You can only proceed by NOT killing this goblin."

* "His plan: to get fucking arrested."

* "And he smashed the skull in that motherfucker's face."

I'll post it behind a spoiler tag in here. It's a really long story covering the majority of a multi-session campaign, so I don't want to completely derail the thread with paragraphs upon paragraphs.

...There is this guy that is in the same RPG group with me (well, two different games actually) who is planning to have a weekend of playing F.A.T.A.L. during the summer.

He knows that it is a bad idea but he also thinks that with enough alcohol it might be fun. He even claims that the game has some elements that were ahead of it's time. Like the fact that you gain experience not by killing things, but by doing tasks that fit your profession. Which is a nice idea but in some cases, such as the case of the prostitute profession it is executed horribly as the prostitutes get so little experience doing their job that they need hundreds or thousands of customers to gain levels.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I imagine alcohol and FATAL together would end in a lot of wasted money/rule books destroyed in amusing ways if my group of friends attempted it.  Anyway, for those of you interested to know, I've been thinking about starting a fantasy/horror-ish rp kind of like Vampires: the Serenade or whatever it's called.  I've also been thinking about an old Fire Emblem roleplay that I originally started years ago on TvTropes back when I still went there that I've wanted for a long time to run to completion.  Also, Adventure Time.  I would probably use a heavily modified version of the d20 system for any of them.  That or GURPS.
