You know what is absolutely kick-ass?
That's right. D&D is absolutely the f***ing s*** and there is no way any of you dorks can even hope to deny it. If you did I'd slap you and inform you that you're incorrect.
Now that we've established that I'd like to firmly note that I have had extreme difficulty playing over the past several years, due to difficulties syncing up schedules, finding people to play with, and even more challenging, finding a dedicated DM who doesn't flake out after level 3 -- no offense to these kinds of DM's, as I am one of them (which is why I shall not be volunteering for the position myself).
Stop rambling Joy. What are you actually trying to arrange?
Watch your tone with me, bold-text voice. I am not a patient woman.
Jeez, okay. But seriously, what's the point of this thread?
Isn't that obvious? :D I want to arrange a forum game with a traditional party (using 3.5e or Pathfinder rulings depending on the most popular pick) of 4-5 characters and a Games Master/Dungeon Master.
Like, with rolls and rules and everything?
You bet, bold-text voice. In the immortal words of Ulysses Everett McGill, "The pleasing odor is half the point." Playing D&D without rules and books and dice and cheetos and rules-lawyering and bitching about random stuff and Character X being sure that Character Y can't apply Rapid Shot to an Eldritch Blast and the entire group going through books and websites to see whether he actually can or if that's gonna make him way too powerful. It's part of the fun.
So basically, yeah. We'll use dice-roll sites and we can use Myth-Weavers character sheets 'cause they work well. Since I made this thread and I want this to work well I suppose I'll take it upon myself to filter applicants and try to form a solid party. I will not, however, be DMing... so that's a concern.
How do I apply?
Just post in this thread, stating that you are interested and either:
- That you're interested in being the DM for the game, or
- What monster food group you want to play as. Specific classes and builds are not required, you can plan that later. Just say "brick", "mage", "sneaky bastard", "healy dude" or whatever. If you belong in this thread then you know what I'm talking about.
Joy, I'm interested but unfamiliar with the material. Can I still apply?
The info is pretty easy to get online. If you're actually interested, do some reading -- I can help newer players but I'm here to get my f***in' quest on, not babysit. You're gonna have to read the books anyway if you wanna play, so I'll run you through a quick quiz off the top of my head to see if you're good to go.
Okay, good write up, but you forgot a very obvious thing that is vital to my interest in this. What is the answer to my possibly-existent question?
Ask me, silly. What do I look like, a telepath? DO I LOOK LIKE PROFESSOR XAVIER TO YOU?
This thread is totally open for discussion and organization of our (hopefully soon-to-exist) totally kick-ass game. Discuss plans for classes and races, what kind of system we'll eventually end up using, who's going to DM, what sort of world we'll use, and all that other fun stuff that gives every single D&D campaign it's very own very special flavor and YES I'm purposefully extending this paragraph for this sole purpose of reaching it past the picture beside it so that the page won't look weird.
Mission accomplished. :D
Are there rules?
- Try not to suck too badly.
- Don't metagame.
- Learn to spell and use punctuation or GTFO.
- Try to actually post in a reasonably timely manner. I don't expect 5+ posts per day but don't just put it off, as a group we'll be relying on you to keep the story moving forward.
- Breaking any of the rules above will result in your character getting hit by a 20d6 lightning bolt and instantly dying, and we'll take all of your stuff and eat your corpse.
