Have you ever heard of the book "MAZE: Solve the World's Most Challenging Puzzle"? Well, it is quite like it sounds, a maze within a book, where each room number is also a page number, so you skip around in the book like a Choose Your Own Adventure puzzle. I am building a Pathfinder campaign for my friends and I based on this book and greatly expanded.

To help me iron out the kinks, I would like to find 3 or 4 people to test it. This will not be a system or pathfinder game, however. What I want is guarantee that you and your party will make it all the way through the story line, so I can test the story out and you can give me feedback for it. For this reason, it will be freeform.

Here is how I imagine this working: I will play the Architect as a character, who is your guide to the maze. You and your party will make the decisions (in character) regarding which way to go, and I will control the descriptions of the scene and environment.
You are free to add in character driven story between yourselves- romances, friendships, whatever it is you desire.

I have all the maps done, and the general plot sketched out, as well as access to all the room descriptions and pictures to go with each one (taken from the book). The details I hope to work out as we go, as it is much easier for me to plan in a flowing way like this, than to sketch every detail out ahead of time.

Please reply here if you are interested.

I have not heard of MAZE, but the concept looks very interesting! If previous familiarity with MAZE is not required, I would be very interested in playing. Do you have a preferred character sheet for those who would like to create a character?

Familiarity is not required at all! It will actually probably be more fun if you're not familiar. I don't have a strict character sheet, but I'll post the one I tend to use for my characters for you.

I have never roleplayed here in E and also never in English (well, only a bit). But I do have experience in roleplaying (in Spanish)

Before I make a character, a little more information about the genre and anything that you definitely would not like for characters would be helpful. I did assume the genre was fantasy as you referenced Pathfinder; I just was not sure.  ;D 

While I am thinking about it--welcome to Elliquiy, Jaqhal!  :-)

To Jaqhal and Blythe

The genre is purposefully left a little fuzzy, as the time period is fuzzy in the book.
However the maze takes the form of a manner house, so I think that a fantasy version of the 17th or 18th century would be appropriate.
The game is is freeform, not governed by dice or number generators or any strict system beyond what we decide among ourselves, so there aren't strict restrictions on the kinds of things your character can have.

There will be some battling, but most the story will be based around exploration.

To all three of you: I will leave this thread up for another day or so to see if we can get a fourth person, but in the meantime I will start building an official OOC thread which will lay out more details, maps, etc.

For Meliamne, as you cannot receive PMs just yet, here is a copy of the message I sent out to everyone.

I have finished the OOC thread. Information about how the game will be run can be found there. Before you post in it, please fill out a character sheet and PM it to me. I will give you the "ok" to post it in the OOC thread. For neatness, I'd like the first posts to be all our profiles, before any discussion happens there. Please bookmark that thread, as it will be important for coordinating the roleplay.

When everyone's characters are posted and a posting order has been decided, I will build the actual roleplay thread and post the link in the first post of the OOC.

Thanks. When I write up my character sheet would you like me to just post it here for your approval or wait until I'm a full member so that I can pm it?

If you're approved by the time you finish writing it, go ahead and PM it to me. If you're still unapproved, post it here :)
