We are going to play Dragon's Demand, a module that will take your character from 1st to 7th level!

Adventure Summary:
Founded by a famous dragonslayer, the small town of Belhaim has become a sleepy rural community just off the beaten path, a settlement where everyone knows everyone and strangers are the talk of the town. But when Belhaim’s peace and quiet is shattered by the sudden collapse of the last standing tower of its founder’s castle, things quickly bloom out of control. Why were there bodies of kobolds amid the rubble? What’s the sinister secret behind the strange sounds of flapping wings in the night? And what’s happened to local wizard Balthus Hunclay, who’s not answering knocks on his door? The collapsed tower had long been an eyesore to the cantankerous old man—could he have had something to do with its destruction? And what of the rumors of strange stirrings in nearby Dragonfen? Has Belhaim’s ancient draconic nemesis returned?

This is a game for players who are new to play by post on Paizo's forums and are looking to get into a PbP game but haven't been able to get selected elsewhere. So if you are new and have been looking for a game and haven't had the luck of getting in one, now is your chance!

I'm unsure of the responses we will get to this since it is restrictive, but hopefully it's a week or less. I've already invited a few new people who failed to get into a previous recruitment of mine to play here and I'm giving them until tomorrow to respond before I start pulling from this recruitment thread.

I've already established 2 players in are in and I'd like to target a group of six, so I'll be selecting between 1-4 additional players based upon who responds to my PMs. I'm looking for people who don't have more than a few active games they are playing in here and have around 500 or so combined PbP posts or less to their account.

Once I get a full group together I'll outline the build requirements, those are not required at this time as I'm selecting players not characters.

Thank you for doing this. I am not new to PbP however, so good luck and have fun all of you!

I'm also not new, but can say from experience that GM Shadowlord is a fantastic players will have a great time!

Sheesh. All this love! <3

I'm definitely interested. I do have a game that I am getting ready to run on the boards, but that is it. With that though, I will gladly step aside for others who have nothing in the way of experience.

This looks fun! I’ve always wanted to play in the Dragon’s Demand. How new are we talking, I just got accepted into my first pbp (we’re playing Legacy of Fire) but that just started a couple weeks ago.

But I have seen and experienced how hard it is to get into any game at all, so I’m in the same boat as Merddyn, if there are other players that are interested than I’ll gladly step aside.

I'm in the not new category as well but would love to play this one. I'll happily withdraw and step aside for someone that is new as this is a really good opportunity for them to learn. Just dotting in case there aren't enough new people to fill in.

Shadow is a great GM, he picked up our Rise of the Runelords after two or three gms were lost and is still going a few years later. You'll enjoy playing with him new people.

I would be very interested in playing this module via pbp.
I've got several character concepts that could fit into any group, though I do lean toward martial types.

My pbp has been limited to one PFS module as a replacement player.
(See Arol under my aliases for samples of my play posts)

Full disclosure: I have run this module for a group of friends face to face; but I can keep the ooc knowledge separate from in character, and if that doesn't disqualify me, I'd love a chance to be involved from the player side.

I don't think I qualify as a newbie to PbP anymore - I joined during GameDay VII in August and broke 1000 posts two weeks ago - but I would also be interested if there are not enough players.

Question for the GM: Are you planning to run this in Campaign mode?

Very cool idea! Agree with what others have posted, ShadowLord is a great GM, so new players should definitely apply!

I may follow your lead and put up a game after you've finished recruiting for yours with the same concept. I've noticed there have been a lot of "new players wanting to get a start" threads popping up recently.

Hi guys, thanks for the continued votes of confidence from others! :) Still no responses from the 3 others that I PM'd. If they don't get back to me by tomorrow then I'll start pulling from the list here.

As a GM and a player, I firmly believe that most possess the ability to keep them separated. I have no issues here.

I am planning on running this like a campaign, yes.

Hi, If you need more players I'd be interested in playing. I've not played in a play by post game before. But I have played Pathfinder before.

I will be withdrawing from consideration for this game, I was lucky enough to be selected to play in another pbp game, and don't wish to take a space from someone else who could use it, or divide my time between two games.
Enjoy the game, it's a fun module!

Alright folks, the time to get moving is here! I've got one person through PM's who's joining (Cheburn), which leaves room for three. The three players in this list that are new are: Merddyn, SamuraiNitta and Lee Clark. Please head over and dot in on the discussion page please.

All others - Thanks for your interest! If one of these players drops or doesn't work out, I will reach out to you to fill any open spots should one arise.

Best of luck in your future games


Good evening!

We've lost a few members of our party over the last month and we are looking to add some new blood! I am looking to recruit TWO new party members to our game! We're level two and still fairly early on in the story. Crunch info can be found in this post.

The party has requested a rogue-like character and a cleric-like character if possible, though those requirements are not mandatory. We currently have a Skald, Fighter and Sorcerer with another who just joined.

Still interested - PM sent.

You're good to go Hawthwile, hop over to discussion.

One spot left. I'm lifting the new player requirement, it's open to all.

I'm rolling up an unchained rogue of some sort unless one of the other new people has a burning desire to play one.

Is this campaign still in need of another member? I've been lurking around the forums for a bit, finally made an account to try to get in a campaign. Have played more D&D than Pathfinder, but I like the flexibility with Pathfinder a bit more. I can make any sort of character if needed. Thanks for your time.

We still have one more opening Aaronackbar, you are welcome to join. Please hop over into the discussion thread and say hello.



Apologies if I'm too late to the party, but if there are any slots left, then I would love to get involved.

Sorry BlueW01f, I have what I need for now and recruitment is closed. Thanks anyway!
