Are you a fan of the political shenanigans involved in claiming the Iron Throne?
Are you intrigued by a setting where dragons are historical fact but now presumed to be extinct?
Would you love to be part of a game where you lead a powerful family against its rivals?
I'm not talking about anything by GRRM... this isn't A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones.. but the old AD&D setting: Birthright!
In Birthright you play the heads of powerful factions: Kingdoms, Churches, Thieves' Guilds, etc. It's a game much less about the usual concerns involving adventurers but moreso about, well, a game of thrones :)
I've run two Birthright campaigns in the past; I think that PbP would actually be a brilliant format to revisit the game for a third go.
If you're interested in participating in a PbP Birthright game here, let me know your thoughts about:
What edition you prefer.. it's written for 2nd/AD&D and WOTC never supported it once they took over, but it's got fairly significant fan support. An entire 3rd edition conversion has been fan-written, and that can in turn be used to adapt the game for Pathfinder. And there's always 5th edition D&D as well, which I keep hearing great things about.
What part of Cerilia you'd like the game to be set: Both campaigns I've run were set in southern Anuire.. It'd be neat to see different parts of Cerilia that don't quite resemble Westeros so much, but then again I don't mind going for the trifecta, either.
