543. In 701 B.C.E, Sennacherib chooses to have his army take a few days to dig wells, instead of relying on the tainted water left to his army in the siege of Judah. Without the cholera epidemic in his ranks, the Assyrians handily reduce the Jews to slavery, and quell the rebellion. The Jews do not credit their monotheistic sky god with the victory, and sensibly adopt the religion of their conquerors.

No interest in The Strange. Duly noted.

The idea is to remove the bottlenecks that cause the friction and dead time in a PBP. By allowing the players some say, the adventure becomes surprising to me.

This is not simply a free-form experiment, however. There will be a plot, but there will still be a lot of space within that plot for player driven narrative.

Expect two or more posts a day.

The game will wrap up in about two months from the start, as this is not intended to be an epic, and is instead more of a short story.

Player characters are quickened, and may thus be from ANY genre or story. In my tabletop version of this game, one of the characters is Fremen, and the other is a malfunctioning Agent from the Matrix animation.

Expect horror and danger. Choose characters that will get up, bloody but unbroken and do the things that must be done.

The first week of the game will be prequels.

Tier one. No additional XP.

Three spaces. One Vector, One Spinner, One Paradox.

Build for your home recursion, but calculate your translation for Earth, Standard Physics.

Wealth and assets up to you.

Apply with character concept. Selection cut=off on June 1st.

I am looking for a few players for a short game of The Strange, a Cypher System RPG by Monte Cook Games.

The system and setting will be used to support a quick-paced and free moving game. In the Cypher System, players roll all the dice, so the applicant should be willing to share in the creation of the story to an extent unusual in PBPs.

For example, a character is in immanent danger of being discovered removing an embedded card from an interbabbage sub-brain in an office of the New Amsterdam Imperial Bureau of Investigation. The GM writes:

'As the door opens, you see a male figure backlit by the fluorescent orbs in the hallway. Light haloes through thin white hair. The man has coveralls, and a cart of cleaning products. He used the cart to push open the door, which grants him some cover. He is level 2. Level 3 versus ranged attacks, because of the polycarbonate cart. He has not noticed you, as he reaches for the light switch, but he will in about three seconds.

The player chooses an action, applies edge or effort, rolls the d20, in an out of character post, then narrates their action, AND THE RESULT, in world.

For an A.P, I strongly recommend retrofitting some of the Pathfinder Society scenarios instead. Use the factions as school houses. The Pathfinder venture can be re-skinned as faculty.

Personally, I wouldn't use Pathfinder at all. For a Potterverse style game, I would use Ars Magica. The fourth edition rules are available here:

I set my current Carrion Crown campaign in 1890s equivalent Golarion, with hydroelectric power, telegraphs, dynamite and a halfling George Costanza tabloid reporter messing things up for the party.

I am going to go the other way with Giantslayer. I am going to set it in the Age of Anguish, just after the Dwarves got to the surface. The sky will still be reddened by the dust of Starfall. There will be no gunpowder, alchemists, or printed works. Real points of light stuff. Humankind thinned out, and the orc hordes still the masters of the world. I will scratch my Earthdawn/ Midnight/ Dark Sun itches, and make it as grim and dark as I can.

After Belkzen, before Kazavon. The dwarves lost their hall in living memory.

A psychiatrist I lived with had an Anatolian shepherd. She threw away some expired drugs, which the dog chewed on when it raided the trash. The dog got loaded on benzodiazapines, amphetamines, and other disturbingly dangerous drugs, and went on a tear through the house. It chewed up everything it could get its slobbering maw on. It knocked everything EVERYTHING off of every surface. It chewed television, laptop, refrigerator, books and gun safe. It sprayed diarrhea behind itself while it did so. There was no square foot of carpet, bed, or tile that did not have pages of books, toilet paper, trash, pillow stuffing, or pills on it. After wreaking a staggering amount of mayhem, the little b&#*! had a seizure, and stopped.

Only one room was untouched by this ruin and wrack. My room. I kept my door closed. There were scratches on it, and it was almost broken off its hinges.

You young people of today...

When I was eight years old, I moved from Oxford, to a gold mining town (Carletonville) in apartheid South Africa. My brother was eight years older than me. He went to university and came back with the red box. At the time, I was a wreck. I had gone through a series of traumas, with the worst two being my difficulty adapting to living in a fascist, racist, fundamentalist state, and surviving sexual abuse by an older boy. I had almost nothing to live for, but that red box gave me a sudden escape. I had already read The Hobbit, and I knew some mythology, but the ability to re-invent myself through D&D hit me with a force that I can still recall. I read the basic and expert rules under the covers with a flashlight, and even a candle, which singed the page with the third level cleric spells on it. It became the best thing in my life, and I naturally wanted to share my discovery with my peers.
Within short order, I was being punched in the gut by children who didn't even know me, spat on from balconies. I had my nine year old head flushed in a used toilet. A teacher confiscated my dice, as evil.
Three older boys grabbed me from the corridoor, into an empty classroom, held me down, and tried to perform an exorcism on me, using latin they probably got from a horror movie. I was sent by the school to a psychiatrist, for atheism, after my notebook was stolen, and handed to the guidance counsellor. I was told by well-meaning adults that I was going to go to hell, and that I had invited Satan into my life. I had one friend. He was also from England, and had the Greyhawk setting, box set. I endured.

In fairness, there was a lot of goofy stuff about my school life. My biology teacher handed out leaflets titled "Is the Kaffir an Ape, or Just a Sub-human?" We had more hours of religious teaching in a week, in my state school, than we had English lessons. We had regular canings and punishment by exercise. My history teacher took pains to explain to the class that carbon dating is a lie from the pit of Hell. Terror of the adversary was mixed in with a stew of white paranoia and the insularity due to sanctions. The panic against D&D was part of wider trends. We had school assemblies about back masking in music, and dire warnings against seeing the James Bond movie "A View to a Kill" because of its immoral and indecent content. (READ kiss between Roger Moore and Grace Jones). D&D was not well known. There were only two kids in the whole town who played it, and we were both Soutpiele

When I was sixteen, I got a break in my circumstances. I was accepted into the drama department of an art school, in the financial capital, Johannesburg. I became a boarder in the hostel, and finally was among people who liked and respected me. The only wrinkle was the Calvinist headmaster. A Mr. Darrell Campbell. He discovered my second edition PHB and DMG in my room. Despite being the edition to neuter the planes and call Devils and Demons Baatezu, and Tanari, he found the game sufficiently objectionable to threaten me with expulsion. Here is a piece of dialogue I still remember:

DC: You are a satanist, then Hoyle? Who else is in this sick cult with you?
TH: Sir, with respect, I am not a satanist. I don't believe in the devil. The devil is a part of Judeo-Christian...
DC: Don't expound your sick philosophies on me boy!
TH: Sir, I am defending myself against an unjust accusation. I am not a satanist.
DC: Then how do you explain THIS! (Produces Dungeon Master's Guide)

I was given my books back two years later. The front cover of the PHB was missing, and there were underlinings in red.

I thought I was in the clear when I left school. Years later, in 2000, my landlord burned my Vampire the Masquerade books, and had the locks changed. He was a police officer. Out of compassion, I didn't press charges, because of his profession, but I took him to small claims court. He lied in court. He said he had not burned my books, and that I was a drug dealer with a grudge. Ironically, I was the only person my age that I knew, in the whole town, who did not smoke dope. I get my kicks from roleplaying.

In the courtroom, I asked him if he was familiar with the commandment to not bear false witness against your neighbour. His reply: "You are not my neighbour"

I think that addresses the OP.

Put this anonymously under the door:

Dear sir.

I am in your target market. I have disposable income. I have geek cred. I also believe in the critical role that local game stores play as a connective tissue that can bring people together in a way that the internet cannot yet manage.

I am reluctant to shop in your store. I find that the store is not well-ventilated. It has a distinctive odour that I find off-putting. Being naturally quite shy, and averse to conflict, I have wrestled with how to broach this topic. Please forgive my inability to approach you directly.

I find it highly likely that I am not the only real or potential customer to be dissuaded from supporting your business by the unpleasantness of the environment in your store. You are competing globally. Most RPG purchases are though internet vendors now. You cannot afford to make shopping online a superior experience to shopping at [insert store name here.]

Please consider the example and advice available at

http://blackdiamondgames.blogspot.tw/2013/06/store-rescue.html

If you make your store pleasant to visit, I will visit. I will spend, and I will tell all my friends about you. I want you to succeed.

Yours sincerely

anonymous.

I have not heard from Reaper yet. Still waiting for an order notification, but I don't mind waiting. I accept that they want to get all of the orders done as soon as they possibly can, and where I have a slight pang of need, they are burning with a desire to just. finish. shipping. and get back to their regular business.

If they run another bones kickstarter, I will put a couple of hundred down on that one too, even if it does take more than a year to get to me. They get molds. They thank us by using them. All is working as intended.
