How About Some D&D?
« on: February 13, 2007, 08:52:27 PM »
You know...a little Dungeons and Dragons never hurt anyone.  You'll just start worshipping Satan and find yourself chasing alligators through the sewers with makeshift swords...but those are trivial side effects...that and...ETERNAL DAMNATION...BWAHAHAHAHA!

Amazing how people actually took that shit seriously though.

But that aside, I'm looking to boot up a nifty game of classical D&D.  Back when creating a character was less complicated than a large corporation's income taxes.  Just straight, clean Second Edition.  You'll start out at first level...kobold fodder, expendable, just another batch of greenhorns who think you have something to prove.

But maybe--just maybe--you do...

And if you do...IF you have the right mix of gumption, luck, steel, and get up one more time than you're knocked down...then this world I'm inventing has a place for you.

The starting scenario is deviously simple: you are shipwrecked.  You bought passage on a ship headed for a colony, and the ship met with a fierce storm.  Starting equipment is simple: you don't have any!   Where are you?  You don't know!  Your first order of business will likely be to try to find whatever's left of the ship, or its equipment washed up somewhere. 

And then...it's up to you.  This game will be open-ended.  Anything can happen.  Your character could end up as anything from breeding stock for orcs to king of his own kingdom, or anything in-between.  Founding a temple, running a guild, being an intrepid explorer or mercenary...all of these are possible.  All levels of sexual content are possible, with both consensual and non-consensual situations possible (just as in real life itself).

So would this be a strict system game?  And what kind of character types would be expected?

What is it about Second Edition that you hate?  Conversely, what of Third (or 3.5) do you like so much?

I'm not going to be religious about the rules, but yes, this will be a system game, though not a strict one.  I'm certainly amenable to bending the rules whenever creativity requires it.

As for character types, you can come in with anything except munchkins.  No drow elves...

What!? You need at least three of those in any adventuring party. :)

I'm tempted to ban all elves.  Don't get me wrong.  I have nothing against elves per se.  Elves are a noble race, and decent folk.  But it seems like whenever I open a game, every...fracking...character...is...a...goddam...elf.  It gets old. 

I don't think  I'll ban elves, but I'll probably cap the total number of elves at two.

*holds up a hand*  I'd like to be a half celestial/half dragon/gnome.   :)

I like 3.5 because it's all I know.  Never played 2E, and from what I've seen of the rules, I have no desire to learn.

No loveable, huggable Sworddancer of Eilistraee?   :'(

May I use Faiths and Avatars, Demihuman Dieties, or Powers and Pantheons? 

Failing that, how about the Compelte Book of Elves?

Sounds like a plan...for the first minute of the game.  Then your character wakes up in an alley with a hell of a hangover, returning to his banal existence as a human first-level recruit of the Beggars' Guild...

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

I, too, could be conceivably in, but I don't know the DnD systems too overly well.  :)

I like the story idea though.

Can I play a thief?  so i can never backstab anyone unless it's just the perfect situation?  *grins*  seriously.  I am interested but no longer have any of my source books.  They've got to be available somewhere on line.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?  And if so, I'd be willing to wait to see what others play before deciding on a character.

Sure...any of those sourcebooks is fine.  I might mod the material to fit into my world, but for the most part it's all good.
