Giving Back to the PBP Community--Interest Check


Silver Crusade

Hey y'all, I have been/am a player in about 6 PBP games, not counting the ones that fell apart after a week, but I'm only the GM of one. I have a couple of campaign ideas bouncing around in my head and thought I'd ask for people's thoughts.

What are y'all's preferences between:
1) Kingmaker AP. Exactly what it says on the tin. Wouldn't be opposed to doing Second Darkness or Jade Regent either.

2) "Ilyarandin, Cradle of Nightmares" Inspired by Lost Cities of Golarion, this campaign would start off in Magnimar but eventually lead into the Darklands.

3) "The Sunspawn War" Also inspired by LCoG, this campaign would start at level 5 and have a narrower focus: the party would play as a Mordant Spire strike team, quietly infiltrating the island of the Sun Temple Colony to disable the temple's powerful artifact-weapon.

I'm also a longtime lover of 3.5 Forgotten Realms, so if people are interested in that I have a zillion ideas.

Hmmmm....intrigued by everything there save for Kingmaker (already in a game). Especially the Darklands.

Well, Jade Regent would be interesting, and I am a fellow lover of the Forgotten Realms.


I'd be interested in playing in any of the AP's. I haven't played any of those before, so I'd enjoy the chance to.

2 looks somewhat interesting, though I also would consider 3. I've played most of Kingmaker, and it's not my bag.

I'd be more interested in an AP than any homebrew. I'm already in a Kingmaker game, but could definitely go for Second Darkness or Jade Regent.

I'm already in a Kingmaker...the rest sounds fine!

Ohh, #2 please. I'd kill for a Darklands game. That sounds great.

#1 would be my first choice, having never played Kingmaker. #2 is a close second. I am also a huge 3.5 FR fan, and would have no issues with breaking out my old books there, too.

Sounds like not so much interest in Kingmakers, but plenty of interest in one of the other APs or the Ilyarandin campaign. Going to leave the thread open for a few more days to let others put their two cents' in before making a decision.

Kingmaker is something of an acquired taste anyway, people seem to either love it or lump it, with not too much in-between.

I missed the mention of Second Darkness. Obviously with my love of the Darklands, that would be just swell too.

#2 & #3 as well! I always found campaigns with a tight focus and theme like #3 can be a lot of fun.

I like Kingamker but unfortunately PbP is not a good format for Kingdom building. Jade Regent is also good but you would have to ditch or modify the caravan rules. Second Darkness has issues toward the middle/end of the AP.
