Hi everyone, first time KS backer & actually first time here on the forums too.

I joined in the wild ride because how awesome D:OS was. I also managed to convince friends to join me in the KS campaign. As for all the Stretch Goals I didn't really care I just wanted to make sure that 1) this game got made & 2) I was involved for once, but seeing the discussion about GM mode I'm super excited seeing as the friends I dragged in are from my old D&D days & we're in different countries so if we can scratch a little of that old itch, that'd be great.

Hey guys, first time backer here and I'm glad my first Kickstarter had such as awesome community. Props to you guys (and Larian of course).
I'm really, really psyched for GM mode. Ever since I started DMing for my playgroup, I've wanted a system to automate things for me. That way I can spend more time crafting the story and lore, than speding brain power on minutiae like rules enforcement.
I can see why people think it would be difficult to DM online/in real time but I think it's comparable to tabletop RPGs. You would still spend a week beforehand crafting storylines and alternative scenarios for the characters, and during the game you just drop them into play and occasionally deal with curveballs the players throw at you. I agree with MechSoldier that narrative can be handled most easily through chat and voice.
In all, you would lose a bit of the interplay and socialization from tabletop gaming, but you gain a lot more in terms of rules automation, art assets, fewer chances for metagaming, and most important to me, the ability to play with people anywhere in the worlds.
A couple of things that I would like to see implemented in GM mode (let me know what you think) which would be really cool:
1) Procedural generation: You could generate everything from whole worlds to the layout and furnishings of a single room (I have the hardest time deciding what to put in dungeon rooms), maybe even NPCs, loot, and monsters
2) Session replay: Speaking from personal experience, my playgroup and I have a hard time remembering the details of things that happened a few sessions ago (especially when dealing with those curveballs I mentioned). It would be great to just be able to replay the pertinent parts for the group or an individual (less metagaming again)
Can't wait!

Well, KS is OVER so we need to move forward. On the other hand, the Forum is an entity that lives on!

Hey all, just got my ride to backer after KS is done, which makes my Paypal backer smile
Haven't played D:OS though, but I believe backing this would do me a worth while.
I'm waiting for D:OS EE now!! Woot!!

P.S: When will I get my backer forum badge??

Hi guys. Good to see you all again. I'm so hyped for EE. Played D:OS for about 15 hours, but stopped when I heard what the EE had in store. Maybe we should get a backers game up and running.

When the pledge management page is set up in a couple weeks, there will likely be an option there to enter your forum email address, and then a script will be run a few times to get the email from the Larian Vault site and enable the forum badge on your account here.
