GMElberion's Wounded Wisp PBP Gameday 6

Game Master GeraintElberion



Hello,

I am recruiting for the level 1 evergreen Wounded Wisp.

I already have two players, JAF0 and Big Joe, and am looking to recruit three more.

Selection will be given by a loaded lottery, with preference given to new players and players who have a proven record of ace roleplaying.

As this is a level one scenario, feel free to just post your name and character ideas. I don't mind people creating characters after they have been chosen, as long as they don't take too long about it.

Applications will be open until the end of Wednesday 12th July, although I reserve the right to close applications early.

table notes:

I like the opportunities for roleplay that pbp offers: if you just want to silently roll dice then that will kill my buzz.

I will check-in at least twice a day. Please, regard once-a-day as a minimum (barring emergencies, naturally).

This will be only my second time GMing PFS although I have done a fair bit of GMing, both face-to-face and play-by-post. I welcome advice and support from players with PFS GMing experience. That said, please keep it to the discussion thread and/or PM.

I will use google slides to host maps, unless people would prefer photobucket? I make maps in maptool sometimes and reserve the right to use vision-blocking in encounters where this might enhance the experience. Be aware that vision/light rules may come in to play.

I will use spoilers with DCs for a lot of skill checks. Please, respect others investment in skills and resist the urge to peak if you have not made the check.

fundamental principles:

These are stolen from Trotter Flaxseed.

1. Posting Frequency: Before signing up, consider how much time you can devote to the game. I prefer players who can post once per day on average. I understand that everyone occasionally has a busy day and just can't find the time to post. I try to avoid this but even as the GM I sometimes miss a day. But not posting for several days is not acceptable. It slows the game down and makes it less interesting because your character will be left behind in the action. And if you disappear during combat and hold things up for a day, I will skip you and move on.

2. Posting Quality: Take advantage of the medium and write some description. Tell us what your PC is doing or what they look like; put up some dialog and start a conversation with your fellow PCs. It makes the game immensely more engaging, immersive, and entertaining. Here is a great example of PCs coming to life with some great description and dialog. I hate to call someone out on bad posting etiquette when the player in question has been making an effort to be better about posting quality lately, but do not ever do this. Isn't the first example so much more fun to read than just a post with some empty dice blocks in it or a post with nothing but ooc text? I will admit, it can sometimes be hard to spice up combat posts. But here is some great simple advice on that. Bottom line: be willing to make an effort role-playing in my game. If you aren't up to that challenge, please consider playing a different game. If you aren't much of a writer or are new to PbP, don't be intimidated. I/We will help you improve! But if you sign up for my game and make too many posts with just dice or just ooc text, I will give you a warning and if your quality doesn't improve I reserve the right to ask you to leave the game.

Indicate your interest below!


google slides is great for me...


Consider me interested! I think I could try for one more game during the first half of game day six. I've been looking at reviving this character from a pbp campaign that died pretty early on. I'd be giving her an archetype that takes away the aura of courage (probably Holy tactician,) as a major part of my concept for her is the feelings of imposter syndrome and if she gains an immunity to fear then it'd be pointless.

Scarab Sages

Is this for Part I of GD?

I've got a handful of arcane concepts that never get to see play, probably my Magaambyan arcanist, and Wisp isn't too rough.

Blake's Tiger

P.S. I like Google Slides


Oh, yes, part one, kicking off on the 25th August.

Dark Archive

I have a few characters that could go.

Silver Crusade

I've got a few PFS characters I've not had the chance to play.

Grand Lodge

Sounds fun. If picked I will play Purnel, 1st level unchained halfling monk. Purnel is fascinated with architecture. He is new to Absolom only being in town about 2 months. He is staying with is twin brother and has just complete his confirmation mission.

Purnel stated life as a GM baby. I have used him once for PBP thinking he was in a campaign, but it fell through. He was actually slated to wounded wisp next too.

Silver Crusade

Google slides will work great for me and I look forward to a fun time.

This threw me slightly,

Magaambyan Arcanist is a prestige class with level 3 spells as an entry requirement.

So, I'm guessing you just mean an Arcanist who trained at the Magaambya?

If so, I think Big Joe has already decided to play an arcanist (I should have put that up top). I don't mind two arcanists in a party but you might want to be flexible if you get picked and have a look at the group.
That's one of the advantages of a level one scenario.

Silver Crusade

I am playing an arcanist. I however look at this way. Play what you enjoy and most of the time things will work out okay.

Heh heh. Correct. Actually the Magaambyan Initiate archetype.

I've got an extensive stable, and only a few have played Wisp yet, so I can be flexible.

Dark Archive

There is an arcanist archetype in the new hard cover book for theMagammayan archaist.

It's in an old soft cover too.

The Exchange

Did you close the recruitment already? I have a level 1.1 Asmodean advocate interested to join. Quintus would be making his first online appearance, but I have quite a many PFS pbp games in my past. See posts e.g. from Drusilla if you want to see my writing style.

I'll be posting daily, at least on weekdays - and most likely on weekends as well. Note that I'm in european time zone, if that affects your selection.


I am also European, it does not make much of a difference.

I should have posted already, let's say recruitment is now closed.

I'll run the lottery later today.


Spoiler:

1d100 ⇒ 66
1d100 ⇒ 96
1d100 ⇒ 63
1d100 ⇒ 50

Okay, Kvina, Quintus and Sesotho are in!

Thank you to everyone for applying, I have enjoyed looking at everyone's old games and now have a ton of ideas for things I want to run (or run again).

Big Joe, JAF0, Kvina, Quintus and Sesotho, please follow this link to post on the discussion thread for this game.
