GM Wanted for dark fantasy system games (M for GM)
« on: January 04, 2015, 01:13:38 PM »
I'm looking for a GM who wouldn't mind running a solo medieval fantasy game with a system. I've always wanted to be the 'main character' in the kinds of stories i've read about and played through, and i've found that solo games allow both player and GM to focus on telling a characters story in-depth without having to wait on others, though I wouldn't be adverse to having another person or two if we could find a couple of people who don't mind being secondary characters or supporting cast.

I'd like to do this with a system of some kind, so the GM needs to be familiar with running system games - I'm most interested in D&D 3.5, D&D 4th and 5th Edition, 13th Age, Legend (Rule of Cool version), Dungeon World, Pokemon Tabletop United and Radiance. I am less interested in, but will not reject outright, the following systems: Pathfinder, all editions of D&D before 3.5.

As for my roleplay preferences, I like an even mix of all the 'pillars' of gaming: Action, exploration, and character interaction are all important, with a slight preference toward action over the other two (and who says you can't combine any or all of them at once?). I wouldn't mind some amount of appropriate smut either, and would actually prefer a GM who isn't shy about writing it when the time comes, subject to both of our preferences. My only real OFF is anything involving fecal matter, but aside from that any kink imaginable is okay, and I am an absolute sucker for lover stories and turbulent romances. I do not care what my partners real-life gender or sexual orientation is, as I am highly pansexual and attracted to people with all sorts of body parts, but the caveat is that even male characters should be a bit more feminine in appearance and behavior.

My list of kinks is extensive enough that my O/O's hardly even begin to encompass them all, but my favorites are incest, bestiality, transformation/body alteration, and pregnancy.

I prefer darker fantasy settings with higher power levels and opportunities for epic heroism, so keep that in mind.

Any takers?

Systems I like: D&D 5E, 13th Age, Dungeon World, Pathfinder (With Path of War), www.ruleofcool.com]Legend, Radiance, Others i'm forgetting.

Some examples of characters i'd like to play (Not an exhaustive list):

D&D 5e Characters
Gravewarden Orlan Fieric

Name: Gravewarden Orlan Fieric
Age: 25
Race: Human (variant)
Size: Medium (5'9", 150 lbs.)
Languages: Common, Draonic, Dwarven.
Class/Level: Wizard (Necromancer) 6
Alignment: Neutral Good

Theme Song:

Background: Guild Artisan (The Exalted Brotherhood of Morticians, Cryptkeeprs and Gravewardens)
Feature: Guild Membership

As an established and respected member of a guild, you
can rely on certain benefits that membership provides.
Your fellow guild members will provide you with
lodging and food if necessary, and pay for your funeral
if needed. In some cities and towns, a guildhall offers a
central place to meet other members o f your profession,
which can be a good place to meet potential patrons,
allies, or hirelings.

Guilds often wield tremendous political power. If
you are accused of a crime, your guild will support you
if a good case can be made for your innocence or the
crime is justifiable. You can also gain access to powerful
political figures through the guild, if you are a member
in good standing. Such connections might require the
donation of money or magic items to the guild’s coffers.
You must pay dues of 5 gp per month to the guild. If
you miss payments, you must make up back dues to
remain in the guild’s good graces.


History
Orlan is an orphan who was adopted by a member of the Gravewardens as a child after his parents, who were also members of the guild, were killed in the line of duty by a vampire who had laired in a crypt they were sent to on a job. With an inborn talent for the arts of wizardry, especially necromancy, it was a natural fit for orlan to become a guild apprentice and eventually join the guild himself. Now Orlan is a tireless and effective Gravewarden with the skills to handle a wide range of difficult and dangerous jobs, from simple corpse retrievals to removing dangerous undead from places they are no wanted and recovering lost treasures.

Spellcasting

Arcane Recovery
You have learned to regain some of your magical energy
by studying your spellbook. Once per day when you
finish a short rest, you can choose expended spell slots
to recover. The spell slots can have a combined level that
is equal to or less than half your wizard level (rounded
up), and none of the slots can be 6th level or higher.
For example, if you’re a 4th-level wizard, you can recover
up to two levels worth of spell slots. You can recover either
a 2nd-level spell slot or two 1st-level spell slots.

Ability Score Improvement

gold and time you must spend to copy a necromancy
spell into your spellbook is halved.

Grim Harvest
At 2nd level, you gain the ability to reap life energy from
creatures you kill with your spells. Once per turn when
you kill one or more creatures with a spell of 1st level
or higher, you regain hit points equal to twice the spell’s
level, or three times its level if the spell belongs to the
School o f Necromancy. You don’t gain this benefit for
killing constructs or undead.

Undead Thralls
At 6th level, you add the animate dead spell to your
spellbook if it is not there already. When you cast
animate dead, you can target one additional corpse
or pile o f bones, creating another zombie or skeleton,
as appropriate.
Whenever you create an undead using a necromancy
spell, it has additional benefits:
• The creature’s hit point maximum is increased by an
amount equal to your w izard level.
• The creature adds your proficiency bonus to its
weapon damage rolls.

I would love to try my hand at this. I hope your open for god-mode-ing for the plot sake, I am not as familiar with the mechanics of system games enough to play by all the rules - I would make judgement calls on if your role is suitably good for the traits and powers your character has (and how good an idea your attempted actions were).

I may even make your character fail at an action he should have succeeded with for plot reasons.

This effectively means that a lot of action would be free-form with me god-moding - plus some roles, but not many, but would be following the leveling rules, gold for purchases etc.

Im not sure how much you adore the system for its sake - so Im not sure if I am the right GM for you, but the offer is there all the same.

Still looking for a chance to play my gravewarden. I'd love to play him as an older, more experienced necromancer. Perhaps more jaded too.

Still looking for a GM for Gravewarden Orlan Fieric.He'd be a great character for a mystery/political story with romance elements. Gravewardens hear a lot of secrets from the restless dead and the living both, after all, and they are sworn to keep them at any cost.

Still wanting to play my necromancer, and dying to play the Warlord class in Pathfinder. I'm open to group games for any of my ideas as well.

Ba-ba-BUMP! I'd LOVE to play Pokemon Tabletop United as a young (or maybe experienced) trainer on his pokemon journey, or any other pokemon plot a prospective GM has in mind. I'm in a Pokemon mood right now.
