New Beginnings!


Recruitment

Cheliax

Well Met! I just recently purchased a Beginner Box and am eager to begin playing. Problem is after asking around no one I know is interested in learning to play. Which leads me to this board. Would anyone be willing to bring a new player into a campaign? I am eager and excited and will gladly do any reading or footwork required. Thanks to all who reply!

Its almost easier to begin a campaign of your own with the full rules (available for free online).


I could have the time to run a PbP game.Don't have a homebrew campaign completed,so could resort to some PF module or AP.
As for time allowance,i'll have plenty of time for some months.

Cheliax

Stardust - My fear is in being new I dont yet have the experiance to put together a solid campaign.

Gandal - I have a char standing by if you decide you want to DM.


I can try opening a recruitment thread,once there it can be decided whether we are going to run a short module (maybe better with a new player) or an AP.

@Verisim,just to know,do you have a preferred play style/type of role/character ?
Also,it is usually better to decide what to play and ask the GM char creation rules,not always chars standing by are suitable for the module/campaign about to start.Sometime maybe just a matter of levelling the char up/down a bit,sometime that role may have already been taken and so on.
but these matters will be discussed when they are an issue so don't worry for now.


As Gandal stated, there are a lot of open groups right now. Depending on how much you want to invest, you could look for a short First Steps game, or an arduous Shackled City game.

Gandal -I am not knowladgeable on the play stlys yet to realy say I prefer one over the other. As I know every adventuring group could use a healer I am more than willing to play a cleric or some other healing motif. I am flexable and basicaly just trying to find a inn or nitch where I can learn and grow as a player.

Taanyth Tuilinn - I have posted on a few open recruitments but my posts seem to have been largely ignored. I fear I am perhaps doing something wrong. I would love to play either a short or long game, as I do have time daily to devote to it.


I'll see what i can do.It is 16:15 here (4:15 PM) and i'll be away from the keyboard for the rest of Sunday.

Cheliax

No problem, I am currently on deployment in the middle east so it is 622pm here. I do not get much sleep and as a result, you would be suprised at some of the hours I will be on.

Don't worry too much about your posts being ignored. Most GMs leave their recruitment threads open for a week or two before making their selections. It does help to post a character or character concept in addition to a basic "I'm interested in this game" post.

Cheliax

Thank you for the advice. I generaly do, and will continue to now that it has been affirmed. I was wondering if maybe my lack of depth of knowladge of pathfinder lore is making my character development off in some way. Im guessing thats just one of those things that comes with time.

Shadow Lodge

I'd be interested in another PBP and also learning the Beginer Box rules. I am also Deployed in the Middle East, (N Afghanistan)


I'd certainly also be interested in a light PBP game. Although I'm not 'deployed' in the region, I am in a close timezone (Central African Time)


Hello all,i did faster than i thought.
Seems like there is enough interests to run at least a module,will link a true recruitment thread in about a day,than we'll discuss what we want to run.

Last year i lost two groups out of RL commitments,mine or theirs.
Hope this time will be different,this is another reason i would like to try with a short adventure first.

Cheliax

Cant wait.

Shadow Lodge

Thanks.


On a second thought,we have 3 players already if Leblanc is still interested.A friend of mine is also interested,if he is in we are ready to go without opening a new thread.
Only thing left is deciding what to run.

Shadow Lodge

There are three Free adventures specifically designed for new players? Let me find you a link.

Shadow Lodge

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Shadow Lodge

Is there anything anyone was wanting specifically? Playstyle, for instance. A lot of combats, or not so much, but plenty of skills and intrigue, etc. . .

Cheliax

I feel as though someone with a little more experiance than myself would be better suited to make the decision on what we play. Consider me in favor of the popular vote.


I'd be interested in joining a game, should someone choose to run one. Would love to do a full AP (any of them) but don't mind a "light" session. Never PbP'd before but have played D&D/PF for some time.

I already have a character that I'd like to try. (I submitted her for a Carrion Crown AP but was ultimately unsuccessful).


Yeah I am definitely still interested. I vote for an AP as well, but that depends on Gandal in the end, if he is willing to commit that much time.


Hello,and welcome MacFetus.
Since we have 4 players i'll close this recruitment.
Have a friend possibly interested in trying PbP,so in case i'll leave the 5th slot for him,but we can start with what we have.
As for what to play,here is the list of what modules and AP i have right away (in print ed. that is):

Modules:

Crypt of the Everflame
Tomb of the Irom Medusa
Academy of secrets
The Harrowing
Feast of Ravenmoor

AP's:

Council of Thieves-only book one
Second Darkness-all books
Serpent Skull-all books
Carrion Crown-all books

Or i can start to brush up a campaign world of mine i designed for the 3.5

Your call,as for me unless something unpredictable i'll have the time for this up to next summer,then we'll see.


Just after a quick look it seems your module are for higher level characters (which I wouldn't mind to be honest) but considering there are new players I don't think that it would be the best.

So I guess an AP would be a good idea, second darkness seems interesting.


Nice one, Gandal. Cheers.

Hello, all.

Second Darkness or CC for me but willing to play anything. :)


Would having one character of each type be the best idea? Fighterish, roguish, divine and arcane?


It's not strictly necessary. I've played in games without "role X" and we've done fine. It really depends on the DM.

For what it's worth, the character that I'm submitting is a face character with little in the way of combat skills.

Shadow Lodge

I've been waiting to play Carrion Crown for a long, long time. It is, in my opinion, the perfect setting. So, that's my vote.

One thing I will point out, though, is that for us deployed folks, we may not be able to post often, and AP's are very, very long.

I love divine casters. Probably go Cleric (again), but mught go Paladin is someone wants Cleric specifically.

Character Creation Rules?

Shadow Lodge

Even the Homebrew could be really cool, too. I actually, in all honesty, prefere things like that as it gives everyone a chance to both learn about the world as we go, and also contribute to it. I'm actually not a fan of Golarion, that much. Pretty much every really cool thing has been edited out because someone didn't like them.

That's one thing that PathFinder has really changed over 3E (and earlier editions of D&D, too). A lot of Classes now cover multiple "roles". For example, the Witch can be a "healer" and "Arcanist". The Summoner can be both a "Tank" and a "caster".

All in all, I've found it best for the group to build around each other, but not necisarrily in the sense of rilling all the "roles".


Am at work guys.Will be back at 10:00 pm i think.

Cheliax

I'm all in. Standing by for Character creation rules.


Evening all.
First, my time zone and posting pace: eastern Italy (adriatic coast) GMT+1
and i usually post from 9:00am till 1:00pm and from 10:00pm till 1:00am.

I'ld like to thank Beckett for his interest in my home-made campaign;for char creation rules they should depend on what we'll play.
For example,im my world races/classes allowance is restricted by the starting region/nation (yes,i'll let you choose which one,of course i'll post a description of the regions available).

For CC or SD since the chars are going to be 4 i think we can build them with 25 points and use max starting gold and 2 traits,level 1,fast XP track.

I'll soon open an OOC thread with a "generic title.

Edit:forgot to specify,actually the "25 points and use max starting gold and 2 traits,level 1,fast XP track." thing is valid in case we decide for my campaign also.

Shadow Lodge

Sounds good. I don't think I've ever actually gotten the 25 Point Buy before. :)

When you say that you restrict race/classes, I assume that the basic classes are pretty much open anywhere, (Cleric, Fighter, Rogue, etc. . . maybe minus the Monk), and that you are talking about thinkg like the Gunslinger, Samurai, and Ninja?


OOc is up
