Dungeons and Dragons Request :)
« on: September 10, 2009, 08:08:10 AM »
I am new here and I just missed out on joining a few of the fantasy system games that a few were keen on being a story teller or games master/mistress for ( a moderator or storyteller is a must) Ideally dungeons and dragons (as I just read up on the rule book!)
but I'm open for other ideas.

If any have ideas and the energy to host a new game, a few girl players may be interested, likely guys also.

If role playing in an open NC / Exotic world is the theme and the plot isn't very specific, the idea of exploring a new world with others here would be something I would adore to get my teeth in. (where we all meet up reasonably quickly or have two or three groups of two or three who are all more or less allies who branch for a while then meet up again, but basically share similar high level objectives is what I had in mind)

I think group threads are more fun than solos personally, to me there is something incredibly romantic about medieval fantasy periods and an established system like dungeons and dragons makes it feel more believable than free form in a way.

I would like to get involved in many group threads so a few replys to this would be heavenly !

I'm interested in this, too.  It's a shame you didn't manage to make it into the Dungeons of Doom game.  I'm precisely in agreement with you on the romantic aspects of a fantasy world, and a moderated system-based collaborative game is also my ideal environment.

I'm going to re-start my previous games (D&D 3.5, old World of Darkness, and GURPS Steampunk), and you're welcome to join any of them.
I see you're also into Pathfinder.  I'm active in the local Pathfinder Society here in Washington DC and I'd like to start a Pathfinder Society game online if people are interested.

If you're interested in a little bit of gothic horror, I have a Ravenloft DnD game going on if you're interested.

All materials are allowed to be used.

Anyone is welcome, just give me a PM if you are interested. :)

Could I intrest any of you fine people in a game of the new edition of earth dawn?  (The third edition?)  i would prefer to run a plot that has non-con ellements but plenty of good old fashoined roll playing and high adventure as well. 

i'm also not adverse to welcoming some new people into my (rather intesivly non-con) D#&D 3.5 original setting game Pheonix Keys.

Here is the sight from the back of he book.  i don't know if it's worth much as a primer.  If I'm still awake once i've finished a few more posts i'll look for more links, or just type some thing up.

Idej : what i don't like about Gothic horror / vampire or werewolf focused games is it is mainly being on the back foot with same themed villains - and not really a world to explore - nor does it give rooms to try your own ideas - (it just sounds like Im in some b splatter flick with doomed fates from word go)
- if im wrong tell me !

Caliban : World of Darkness / pathfinder sounds cool
Muse : Phenois keys - i will have a look for it / earthdawn ? sounds cool.

if we can can have a status purchase of 40 points (or not must below it - mainly just because it took me ages to write the character up i have now - and thats how she was made - that could be cool the main thing i would like to see happen
is i dont want fights to go for ever where every "round is a pbp thing"

if I just say my intentions like "ok i will try and use this to fend of this then try and manage so and so by ra ra ra" and everyone says their general approach - the GM or storyteller next posts when the find ends or even

"this went ok - but then this happened ... leaving your only option to run - somehow you got separated from the group and here you are alone - you lost this and that in the hase of fighting and your loosing a lot of blood and in a world of pain  - (your hit points are now X - and you have exhausted all your spells save ... Y and Z - oh and your healing potions are spent )"

... and if another "round of fighting happens - it is a different scene or different group that stumbles upon me - if the fights can resolve quickly like this so we continue role playing ( even if they are to the detriment of players objectives - it keeps it fun and interesting - and exciting ) - so fight ? - you have one post (usually) before the battle ends one way or another. - and epic fight ? everyone has two posts (tops) - fights can be violent and frequent - but please no one in particular drawn out :)

My character is level 4 currently starting stat point purchase of 40 points
(I would adore to start at level 5 ! - thats when characters are practical but still high dependant on other allies - fast xp accumulation) my starting cash was 6000 gp - I think its cool to start with a lot - but easy come easy go - dont mind stuff breaking / being lost / stolen etc / dont mind being outclassed in situations a lot - and only getting away with the skin of my teeth with them keeping a lot of my goodies - lost - with perhaps one friend i can just hear - but he or she is trapped or something - love it :)

Any GMS like this idea - great - just tell us a level, starting points, starting cash ... and we are away ! :)

Places were we can occasionally travel to a big city so we can buy back all the stuff we lost lol - and do travel a lot - have to sleep a bit - role playing camp fire scenes etc - see new scenes (not just a dungeon that is massive and doesnt end - or just one scene like desert for ever ) ... variation - fast plot movement - Im addicted ! :)
 
Im happy to help others new to it to make character sheets - hopefully others that know it better than i do offer to make character sheets up for those new to this system - and they can choose one from a set - and phps ask another to modifying it saying "hmm i want more of this dont really care for that" ... and likely one of us will for them - (mainly useful for purchasing stuff that is practical for them - those not fluent in the rules would likely be burnt there- but as long as treasure happens - the storyteller can soon balance matters to make things fair )

sex happens - but more many short scenes scattered throughout, not just we adventure for awhile - then everything resolves into it being a long scene for 1000 posts - the main objective are other things, but sex happens on the side :)

if characters want to have a long many post sex scene with each other - they can branch the thread and start their own between them - then link it back into the story when they are done - so they can roleplay continuing with the main plot while expanding a previous sex scene as much as they like between themselves personally ( this would aid character bonding a lot )

thoughts ?

oh also i dont mind if the story teller "meta-games" god modes my own character during fight scenes - just to keep the story moving - fights should be fast and furious - and storyteller making assumptions on what my character would do is likely to be necessary to keep it so - i would prefer that and the story teller focusing on describing scenes in vivid detail - and almost rushing through fights / actions scenes - to keep it dramatic and fast paced - if they draw out everyone becomes apathetic... well my view anyway

This is one of my three homes on E, Kate, the one where I keep Pheonix Keys. 

Most of my games are more like what you describe further up, though I tend to draw mights out a bit longer than you seem to speak of.  Pheonix Keys, by contrast, is a non con fantasy romp with dice.  ^_^ 

By the way, you've inspired me to try and tweak my profile a bit.  i wonder if i'll pull it off this time.

Earth dawn seems a different system - I would prefer if it was dungeons and dragons for two reasons

a) Its more popular and those used to freeform which are trying their hand at this would benefit most from dungeons and dragons if they only had the effort to learn one system.

b) i wanna play my character i made ! :)

Caliban and Muse - would you consider mutually storytelling ?

you could both have exotic characters (perhaps a strange familiar to another)
that you role play when the other is the story teller ?

pathfinder /world of darkness so far seems the best mainly as there are online references - for the rules etc.

I read all this and went uh? Man have I been out of the loop! The parts I did understand (at least I think I did ) has me agreeing with Kate. I don't like endless dungeons or fights that drag on forever. I like shorter campaigns that give you a chance between them to restock supplies, make repairs or whatever. Its not fair to those without a partner to be made to wait through sex scenes so yeah: I agree they should branch off.

Starting off at level one sucks; it takes forever to get to the really good things so starting out a bit higher is very appealing to me. I am still interested despite feeling I would be getting in over my head.

i have an idea - all those keen make up a character - those that need references just ask -

i may make mine up at 3.0 or 3.5 (whatever i can find online - if i find a good sight i will link others here )

 and make a character at level 5


(See the next post:)

if those that want to story tell want to play with a different version - i dont mind - changing an existing character to fit slightly different rules takes less time than making them up from scratch - also it would be a good way to see who is keen - also the characters that we make may give others a good idea what plots would be moist enjoyable with them - so it would help everyone anyway :)

see post 22 (sorry all !)

hey ! there is a free online application which can build 4th edition characters for us !
I have downloaded it and playing with it now :)

check it out - still may need the storyteller to have the actual core rule books though - but the players may not need to own them - dont need to know anything about the rules before this application just gives you the right options .. :) sweet !

Wow, this thread blew up.  I also think it'd be neat to start out above first level.  That said, what would be really cool, to me, would be to blow the doors off and start around tenth or higher.  It seems like nobody ever does that, and I'd get a kick out of it.

Earthdawn is a game that fascinates me and I'd like to play it someday - but it's also fairly complicated, in comparison to most FRPGs, and I'm not sure I'd want to try chargen or teaching it to a new player online.

Further:  I'm pretty sure D&D's online character generator only lets  you level characters up to three or so, if you have the free version.  I may be wrong.

see post 22 (sorry all !)

your right - it only allows level 3 for the free version.

If any are dungeons and dragon lovers i would ADORE them to buy the full version ... and level up our characters (you would be very popular) that generator i am playing with now - manages all rules for me - don't really have to know what i am doing - i adore it.

lets use it to make level 3 characters - hopefully someone who knows dungeons and dragons 4th edition could join this threads.

Please nothing more complicated than dungeons and dragons - either that or something simpler remember many are free-form fans new to system gaming i was expecting them to effectively just role play as if they are free-forming - but if they want to use an ability or cast a spell they can look at their character sheet to do so - how effective it is - all game mechanics - the storytellers business (so players dont really have to know)... if any one has any player concept many with the generator that know anything about dungeons and dragons would make one for you - so no need to care about rules - for players :)

this primarily is free-form role players trying their hand at a system game - (and i want them to have a taste of then treasures feel more real, their character feels more real ..)

- the storyteller doesnt really have to know 4th edition either (I dont - just dungeons and dragons at some level ) but mainly can describe scenes well and tell a good story :) - I would be more than happy with that :)

4E is very, very much about tactical decisionmaking.  I'm not sure that someone trying to roleplay their way through combat without understanding what their choices mean is a great idea.  It's just not going to work in the long run. 

If we're going to have players who aren't system-monkeys, I think that sticking to the earlier editions is most advisable.

Don't get me wrong, the character generator is fun to play with, and the game rules don't have a lot of complicated interactions the way high-level 3.x did, but trying to play it "blind" is asking for trouble.

Ok - well then I will go with whatever the keenest storyteller wants ! :)

- more than happy - for me its less about the system more about friends
but the system is just there for treasure and stuff to make sense mainly :)

perhaps help out with what sort of villians we may be facing :)
