Hmm, what to run, what to run...

Scarab Sages

For you my friend I would be game to play anything. I am in a council of thieves game but the gm there has said he has edited a lot of it, It was meant to be a low powered campaign heck were are level 5 and get out first PC level at 6. Right now he is a aristocrat level 5. I got a masterwork weapon this level its pretty shiny.

So basically if you wanted to do Council of Thieves I could do that again certainly. The I am in the first book on a lot of the AP's, the only ones im in further than that of course would be this Awesome reign of winter one >.> and I guess technically the Council of Thieves.

Beside the games im in with you, I did kingmaker for two encounters, I've been a pirate twice, though I am in a very slow running run that is nearing the end of book one, (i started it before the reign of winter one and literally I guess we are just now getting close to the end of book 1). Ive been in five Rise of the runelords that died by the 2nd encouter, minus a rise of the goblin lords, one that died just when I was planning a coup. Im in a wrath of the righteous nearing the end of book 1, but other than that havent touched the other ones really, but would be willing to play anything *Nods nods*


Okies, Thankies :3

And yeah I've played in a bunch too (our group's currently doing the Six Trials...), I think the only game I'm in that hasn't been heavily edited is the Jade Regent one with you.


Male Human Techno-geek-dad/40

I'm always up for a game, my only request is not Rise of the Runelords as I'm GM'ing 3 and playing in 1 at the moment.

Other than that I have either played in or are playing in:
* Council of Thieves (PC)
* Reign of Winter (GM)
* Skull & Shackles for a few weeks before it died. (PC)
* Giantslayer (GM)
* Mask of the Mummy (PC)
* Hell's Rebels (PC - But this just died).

But really, you start it and I'll be there.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Haven't done Council of Thieves, Serpent's Skull, Shattered Star or Mummy's Mask.


Ooo, forgot about Shattered Star and Mummy's Mask.

lol this just got harder XD

Also I have all of the modules as well so if you guys would be interested in any of those I can run them.

Or I can run a full Adventure Path :3

It's up to you guys.


Male Human Techno-geek-dad/40

Oh I forgot about Shattered Star as well, I've GM'd book one of that. There is also:

Curse of the Crimson Throne
Second Darkness
Legacy of Fire
Jade Regent
Iron Gods

What do you want to GM? List all the ones up we've never played and do /random?


*scratches head*

Maybe, that or just list the ones you guys really want to play, maybe list top 3 or something?

Scarab Sages

I know very little about any of the paths up until I go to get involved. If I were to top three interest them i would say

Shattered Star, Second Darkness, and then hmm since i have no idea about it Giant slayer?

(i went ahead and took out Rise of the runelords... one day game one day I will play you! *lawls*)


>.>

<.<

Weeeeeeelllll, you could go bug Phoenix, I hear he's running 3.


I admit, I've been really into playing Suikoden, Fallout 4, and Fire Emblem lately. I wouldn't mind the chance to build my own kingdom.

Of course, a lot of people aren't fond of Kingmaker but I think it has a lot of potential.


We were in a KM that pretty much went nowhere.

Aside from Hell's Vengeance I don't have anything against of the any APs (if you guys try to push for that one you will use a 5 point-buy and I will take GREAT glee in killing your characters).

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I've been in 3 attempted Kingmaker runs and they all just sort of die out.

Well. All three are currently slotted with six PC's at the moment and I prefer not to hit 7 if I can help it. If someone drops somewhere I can let you know if you're interested.

Going off TheNine's list I'd be up for Shattered Star or Second Darkness.

I like our demented storyteller would have fun in Carrion Crown.


Things are starting to point towards Shattered Star, hmm.

I would love Carrion Crown, but the GM we had for the longest time changed a LOT so it's kinda, err...


I'll be honest. I'm a bit Lovecrafted out.


o.O

:3

Hopefully you'll be up for Strange Aeons when it comes out.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

Shattered Star is Lovecraftian?


Into the Nightmare Rift takes place in Leng.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

So here's an idea, everyone pick three themes and we choose from the paths that fit the most common choice


Ooo that sounds fun.

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

hmmm.
Themes. I don't know.
I recommend you avoid Kingmaker. I'm in one that's struggling along, but I get the feeling that it's really wonky for PbP


Male Human Techno-geek-dad/40

Hey Gideon is here! /wave

I would like one where we have more than a 5 point-buy, a game that lasts at least through book one, and intriguing role-play over stats.

Oh wait, you said themes. Whoops :D

I don't want lasers, super sandboxy or lovecraftian. But I wouldn't mind kicking Cthulhu's ass! :D

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I think it doesn't matter what we play as long as we all invest. It's equally, if not more, important that the GM wants to run the thing we play.


*nods*

Though aside from HV there's not any that I'm really opposed to running.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

I'm Kinda down with the no lasers or Lovecraftian. And something with a real feel of adventure/save the day to it.

Scarab Sages

Kingmaker does seem made for killing pbp, i thinks its the sandboxy nature of it though i too love sandboxes.

No Lasers No lovecraftian sounds good.

Im all about being the big damn hero for a bit.

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I can get behind that. Is there an AP that lets you be the hero without feeling like a weakling at early levels?

Maybe we could start at a later book?


Eh, since this is my first time running a PBP I'd prefer if we started from the beginning, sorry.

So let's see:

Rise of the Runelords : Classic heroes

Curse of the Crimsom Throne : urban heroes

Second Darkness

Legacy of Fire : eh, you're in Katapesh, later on you get to be heroes I guess.

Council of Thieves : not really heroic, plus you got that damn play...

Kingmaker

Serpent's Skull : it's got serpent folk and Ydserius so Lovecraftian but not Lovecraftion horror

Carrion Crawler

Jade Regent : help Ameiko reclaim her rightful throne, pretty heroic

Skull & Shackles : pirates... right...

Shattered Star

Reign of Winter : stop the world from being destroyed (my personal favourite AP)

Wrath of the Righteous : epic/blatant HERO AP but contains mythic

Mummy's Mask : Indiana Jones AP

Iron Gods

Giantslayer : another classic fantasy AP

Hell's Rebels : overthrowing an Evil Goverment

Hell's Vengeance


Male Human Techno-geek-dad/40

While fun, Reign of Winter is brutal in the first book. If you don't want to die I would avoid that one.

Runelords definitely makes you feel like a hero in book one. Book two on the other hand is all about smashing your face in >.>

Anyone have thoughts on Jade Regent?


Me and TheNine are currently playing in it, but were not that far. The only downside I can think of is the amount of GMNPCs.

(Curious how much longer Sunday will stay with that RotRL group)

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

Right now I'm feeling jade regent or Giantslayer. I know actual nothing about Giantslayer. I have its title and that's it. :P


I also know actual nothing about Giantslayer XD

Scarab Sages

i assume there are giants to kill :)


*thinks on title a little more*

Oh! I thought it involved doing something else with Giants...

Scarab Sages

Maybe they forgot a space and its Giants Layer?


That's what I was thinking...


Hello there, got invited over and with a couple of games suddenly on indefinite haiatus decided to accept the offer.

I'm game for most of the options still open with the exceptions of skulls and shackles (running 1, playing in two pbp and 1 rl) and hell's rebels (in two).

Of particular interest to me would be legacy of fire and council of theives.

I'd really enjoy something I could run a vigilante in, got the book and love the class concept and several archetypes.


OMG I'm lovin UI :3

Haven't really got a chance to play a Vigilante though.


CotCT AE is coming out... but in September...


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I think the reason I'm Lovecrafted out is just I'm "dark and drearied" and "being evil" out. I would love to play in a good party without an incredible amount of angst and drama around every corner, whose reward for doing good deeds isn't having their family killed and innocents murdered right in front of them while they can't do anything about it.

It'd be awesome.

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

Now that you mention it, I haven't played an unabashedly good character in forever.

Scarab Sages

lets see someone mentioned wanting to be a vigilante, Im thinking sorceror/bard, perhaps some sort of aasimar? Super good of course

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I really want to try the super rager skald/bloodrager that gives +8 str/con to the entire party at lvl 2.

Fated champoin+war drummer skald. I will drum your face off!
If we have me AND a bard?! Oh my....

Edit: His great club is totally going to be a Giant's thigh bone and his smaller clubs will be the thigh bones of his (evil) enemies!


to steal your list from earlier now that I'm home

Rise of the Runelords : Classic heroes (Not to interested in a second one but I could be convinced)

Curse of the Crimsom Throne : urban heroes (in one, not sure I need another though the vigilante class might fit in really well)

Second Darkness In one and having a lot of fun, not sure I want a second one though)

Legacy of Fire : eh, you're in Katapesh, later on you get to be heroes I guess. quite interested

Council of Thieves : not really heroic, plus you got that damn play... quite interested

Kingmaker (had nothing but bad luck with this one)

Serpent's Skull : it's got serpent folk and Ydserius so Lovecraftian but not Lovecraftion horror (maybe)

Carrion Crawler (never could get into this one)

Jade Regent : help Ameiko reclaim her rightful throne, pretty heroic (interested)

Skull & Shackles : pirates... right...

Shattered Star (maybe but it's already off the list so no)

Reign of Winter : stop the world from being destroyed (my personal favourite AP) (This is one of the ones that died just recently and I dearly want to play it through.)

Wrath of the Righteous : epic/blatant HERO AP but contains mythic (interested but have had really bad luck with it, game either dies or slows to a crawl almost immediately.)

Mummy's Mask : Indiana Jones AP (Meh, not really, but maybe)

Iron Gods

Giantslayer : another classic fantasy AP

Hell's Rebels : overthrowing an Evil Goverment

Hell's Vengeance

Scarab Sages

Male Nerd 3, Father 5, Obsessive Poster 2

I've narrowed it down to

Rise of the Runelords : already in one

Curse of the Crimsom Throne : weak maybe?

Second Darkness: Know nothing about it

Legacy of Fire : I could get behind this one. I haven't attempted it in years. The last one ended in a TPK at the end of book one.

Council of Thieves : meh? Theives doesn't seem to equal heroism...

Kingmaker In one that's struggling.

Serpent's Skull : Never tried it. I hear it's kinda Surviror-ish

Carrion Crown: Maybe, but his one is all horror and I'm not sure that's what we're going for here.

Jade Regent: Maybe? All those NPC's could be rough on a newer GM

Skull & Shackles : been in two, run three

Shattered Star Already DQ'd, apparently

Reign of Winter : In one, kinda hesitant on another

Wrath of the Righteous : Maybe? I hear this one was balanced on the weak side, so could end up being a challenge for our Storyteller

Mummy's Mask : *shrug* Haven't heard much...

Iron Gods

Giantslayer : I know nothing about it, but the title sounds interesting.

Hell's Rebels : in one

Hell's Vengeance

*nods*

And don't worry, since I'm GMing instead of playing there will not be any Dauds in the campaign :3


*scratches head*

Actually, while Shattered Star does have a part taking place on Leng it doesn't require you to make dark or nebulous characters.

In fact, the AP as a whole has plenty of redemption and diplomacy options for the antagonists and is for the most part lighthearted (compared to the other APs that is).

To go back to what you're saying J, SS has a Lovecraft setpiece, but not a Lovecraftian feel to it.
