Wife and wife looking for a game that will take both of us.


Recruitment

Dark Archive

I know this is not the normal procedure, but I keep seeing games that only have one opening at best and I was hoping someone would be willing to take a package deal.

We're not totally new to PF, we've been playing on and off for about half a year. We love to play and are pretty good with rules IMHO and character creation. I generally prefer to play skills-heavy characters and she prefers to play combat-specialized characters. I'm new to the forum and she hasn't posted yet, so I realize it's a gamble.

Admins, I apologize if this is totally uncalled for, please have me delete it if so.

No ones going to give out or delete anything.

A little tough to get a game together, seen a few people try and sometimes succeed. Good luck to your quest!

Welcome to the boards!

Generally GM's will post asking for players, and it's up to players to respond-- "looking for group" requests do pay off occasionally, but not often. It does seem to me like there aren't as many games recruiting right now as there normally are, but maybe that's just me.

If you find a game you'd like to sign up for, do mention that you're Play-by-Post newbies; many GM's reserve slots for newbies when they can, and many more will do their best to make room for you. We like bringing people into the fold!

I'll have to give that one a try, thanks... my wife just got home and I'll ask her how she feels about it!


Don’t get your hopes up for any one game. It can be hard to get into one and many games fizzle out. You really have to enjoy the process of making characters.

Asking upfront is absolutely the right way to go, though! You never know who's looking for new replacements for their games, or thinking of starting a new game.

We're both starting not to feel too hopeful haha. But we do like making characters and this would be a fun challenge for us, we haven't really made a linked concept before and it's something I've always wanted to do.

I've seen games that accept proposals for paired characters. Two siblings, an aristocrat and servant, etc etc etc. You might want to try that route.

I recently accepted two players who had set up their characters as lovers in creation and wanted to be in a game together.

Take a look at the recruitment threads for new games, read what the GM is looking for in characters, many do like characters that have connections from the beginning, and then apply as a pair. Wife & Wife, Lovers, Brother & Sister, or even just friends. If the characters are good you'll soon find a game.

The link that Grumbaki shared is a game specifically for that. I spent some time while my wife was at work, writing up a page full of concepts for such a game :D

That's actually great to hear, since we prefer to play together!


I'll echo what others have said - create your characters with connections or direct pairings - worked for me on a bunch of occasions; sparring partner of mine on these boards created a drow priestess and I her bugbear bodyguard. We also ran two psychotic halflings orphans who ended up in the same mercenary company.

Get creative in your pitches and connections and sound out prospective GMs on what they'd be looking for in connected characters.

Alas I'm not running any games at present as I'd have happily reserved you seats :)

Good luck regardless

Thanks for the encouragement! If ever you are looking for a pair of players, hit us up. I rather like drow, funnily enough. Though one of my friends suggested I play a Caligni haha

Yeah, my wife and I like to play together too.

We're in a few games together. Some are ones I run, one's a special campaign we got a friend to run, and two are ones we simply applied together in (our characters aren't related, however). It's a lot of fun.

But yeah, if you were to apply for one of my games, I'd say just make it clear you come as a package. Most GM's will be willing to accept that kinda thing.

I am running run already for some RL firends. Let me think if I can pick up another.

Cool. Part why I haven't is I see these threads with like 20 pages of applications and (and dots? whatever that means) for one slot. I know the longer I lurk and look for games the more likely I'll be to find one!

Right on, no worries either way :) Thanks for the consideration regardless :)

A dot is a marker people leave so they can keep track of that thread later. Either they have an idea but it's not ready to be a submission yet, or they like the game and want to think about it for a bit. And yeah, there's a lack of GMs compared to players on the forums.Just keep applying!


You've gotten some great advice, Josie Nemo. I particularly agree with being direct about coming as a pair (though my characters tend to be more related to each other than my spouse and friends I play with).

I think at this time of year fewer games might starting as with the holidays coming up so people being away home (and many colds going around) posting slows in some places. I would suggest to keep looking but expect more places to pick up in the new year - I think a few people (myself included) are waiting and planning for then. I wish you and yours best of luck with it.


Is there a kind of campaign you'd be willing to GM? Then you could guarantee playing together.

That makes sense, thanks for the explanation :D I'll keep applying :D

Awesome, thank you so much, and yes the advice has been very helpful.

Mmm, I would actually love to run something and have ran a bit of Mummy's Mask in the past. Right now I'm more interested in Starfinder. I just worry that a GMPC might be selfish of me

UPDATE:

So, I've gotten 4-5 offers of GMs willing to run games, so I have some messages to answer in the near future :D

Thank you everyone who has responded, I appreciate the advice, recommendations, and offers so much. I hope in the future I can pay it back with similar advice and GMing (probably SF).

If you were looking for a 5e campaign in Greyhawk I might have something opening up relatively soon. PM me if you are interested. More of a mystery than a hack and slash...but all depends on who is playing, I suppose..lol

I'm going to throw in a welcome to the forum. Always good to add to our pool of players.

I would caution against the DMPC route, it is really hard to keep it separate, especially if your loved one is playing in the game. Other than that the rest of the advice is as sound as you can get.

I was always sad that Siobhan's drow incarnation never got more time to play with her bugbear either - that game had so much potential...


It did indeed - huge potential as the roleplay was excellent straight out of the gate! Looking back at the threads the characters were interesting with loads of potential... wonder if R0B0GEISHA ever thought of resurrecting it? (especially as our thread starter Josie liked drow...)

Still Sariana and Albrekt make for a formidable pair also!

You get to live so much more when you're dead! Strange how we keep running into each other in games - I'd never connected Albrekt and Hurkagg!

Hey, Josie Nemo! I sent you a PM with an invitation for the two of you.

Cheers!

Good to know Nik - with a moniker like Black Dow I'd hate to be typecast as just playing big, hairy, nasty basterds lol.

Good luck to you both!
The best bet is to join a game that is just starting. An ongoing game has more chances to continue, as a lot of new games fizzle rapidly, but generally has only slots for replacements.
