I'll mull it over some more before I decide, I suppose.


Alright, I will likely play a halfling cleric then. :)


A quick search of the Lost Lands setting lead me to the Kingdom of Nyaslan, which is ruled by nagas and has a caste of nagaji servants. GM, would I be able to play a nagaji? Specifically a nagji with the sacred nagaji heritage?


Alright, I’ll bite. :)

Having run both Mummy’s Mask and Outlaws of Alkenstar, I’ll also vote for Lost Lands. I crave new experiences!


Thank you all for your submissions. After conferring with the players, we have selected gyrfalcon's "Clara" as our new character. I will keep the rest of you mind should another spot open up in the future!

Gah, posted in the wrong thread! Two recruitments going at once, sorry! :D

The player who left this game was a kashirishi thaumaturge.

Yes, this one was a human bard.

Visna Crownbreaker, human thaumaturge

Recruitment will be open until next Wednesday, January 24th. I'm looking forward to seeing your submissions.


Hey guys, I'm going to bow out of this game. I've been much busier than usual lately and haven't been able to find the brainpower to devote to this, especially with the rapid-fire pace of the back-and-forth dialogue that's been occurring. I don't want to slow things down or hold anybody back. Thanks for the opportunity to play, GM. Hopefully I'll see you all around on other games on the boards.


I think I'm going to be too busy to join this game, alas, so I will withdraw from contention. Thanks for the opportunity and I hope the game goes well. :)


Potentially interested. I'll see what I can come up with.


Orc barbarian with Osprey Warrior background. Let's gooo!


Dot for interest. Will come up with a concept soon, probably a Gorumite.


I likely won't be able to post much from now until Monday morning. Busy stretch of days.


Yes, that would be the idea, to give you a good experience with the system. :)


Well I just got the Rusthenge adventure for 2E, levels 1-3. Happy to run it for you all if you want.


Yeah, amazing! Going to refrain from making a poppet now since I don't want to directly compete with you, Noemy! I'll work on that half-elf instead. :D


GM, I’m considering creating a poppet oracle with either the flames or lore mystery. Would this concept be too out there for the game? I can create something more grounded if you prefer. :)

My backup plan would likely be a half elf oracle or Investigator.


Dotting for interest, I will put together an oracle.


It'll probably take me a few days to find time to read the OSwR rules and convert my character. Busy week so far.


I haven't found a whole lot of difference between running PF1 or PF2 games on PbP. I run the majority of combats through theater of the mind, as I find it easier and faster to adjudicate. Only if a combat is quite complicated, such as against numerous opponents or against enemies whose positioning affects their abilities will I resort to a battle map.

I also tend to eschew most secret checks and let the players roll them. I trust them not to metagame by knowing the results of their rolls and to keep player knowledge separate from character knowledge.


Lots of conversation here! Hard to keep up with it, but in a good way. :)

PF2 has been my bread and butter since its debut. I really enjoy the system, especially as a GM, and I have run several campaigns to completion with it. There have been a few lackluster experiences but overall it is has been largely positive.

That being said, it’s nice to have a change of pace now and then. That’s why I started my DCC game which I am greatly enjoying, and that’s why I”m here to try a different system.

I’m fine with whatever rule set we settle on. I won’t leave regardless of the system. I’m just happy to be here. :D


The rules for S&W don't really excite me, but as OSW said, I'm here for the RP. I'm fine with any system as long as there's some fun interactions between the PCs.


Gold: 3d6 ⇒ (4, 2, 5) = 11 x 10 = 110 gp

Here's my work in progress character sheet:

Str 11

10

GM, I did not see shields listed under the equipment chapter. How much are they and how much AC do they add?

Also, what sort of deities are available to worship?


3d6 ⇒ (4, 6, 6) = 16
3d6 ⇒ (5, 4, 2) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (6, 6, 2) = 14
3d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 1) = 9
3d6 ⇒ (5, 5, 1) = 11
3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 2) = 9

Just stats for now, since I'm short on time till tomorrow. Will likely be a cleric or wizard.


Hello! Thanks for the invite, GM. Looked over the thread and it all looks good to me. S&W seems to hew pretty closely to standard AD&D so not a whole lot unique about it as a system, but it will probably still be fun with a good group like what you've gathered here.

Are you ready for us to start rolling stats?


Tracking by lot seems easier to me.


I have two talents: +2 to Intelligence and advantage on one spell you know (I chose burning hands).

I did roll for my background as well, which came up as Mercenary.


I had been away on vacation the past few days, but I am back now. My character is done and I'm ready to start whenever you are.


Spells:

• Burning Hands* (advantage from wizard talent)
• Magic Missile
• Sleep

Languages: Common, Dwarvish, Orcish, Sylvan, Draconic, Primordial

Gear: Crawling kit, dagger, staff, lantern, mirror, oil flask, 1 gp

Gear Slots: 12/13

Just need the fluff now.


Stat Rolls: Str 13, Dex 11, Con 14, Int 12, Wis 10, Cha 9
Ancestry: Human
Class: Wizard
HP: 1d4 + 2 ⇒ (4) + 2 = 6
Talents: 2d6 ⇒ (3, 2) = 52d6 ⇒ (4, 5) = 9 (+2 Intelligence, advantage on one wizard spell you know)
Background: 1d20 ⇒ 11 (Mercenary)
Alignment: Neutral
Title: Shaman
Starting Gold: 2d6 ⇒ (2, 3) = 5 (25 gp)

I still need to pick spells, languages, and gear. I'll do that and come up with the fluff later on.


Thanks! I think I will make a wizard. I'll try to find some time to work on the character in the next day or two.


Maybe it's in the wrong thread. I asked for clarification in the other one. :)


Alright, well, I'm a bit confused now with all the multiple threads, lol. GM Tribute is rolling up characters for us, so the rolls I made earlier were for this game if chosen, yes? Did I do it right?

I've had very little sleep the past few days so that may be impacting by reading comprehension. :D


Character Stats

Str: 3d6 ⇒ (6, 1, 6) = 13
Dex: 3d6 ⇒ (3, 6, 2) = 11
Con: 3d6 ⇒ (4, 4, 6) = 14
Int: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 5, 5) = 12
Wis: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 5, 3) = 10
Cha: 3d6 ⇒ (2, 1, 6) = 9

Not bad!


Also interested in this. :)


I am interested in playing this game. I don't have a lot of old-school gaming experience, but I am currently DMing two different games of Dungeon Crawl Classics. Have only been doing so for a few months but I am really enjoying it so far and would love to be on the other side as a player.

I DM on these boards more than I am a player, but I have been active for seven years and have run several Pathfinder adventure paths in 1st and 2nd edition to their completion. My longest games have been about five years or so from start to finish. I haven't read the Shadowdark rules yet but I am a fast learner! :)


Alright, let's do this! Dungeon Crawl Classics, ho!

Oceanshieldwolf and GM West are in as they are the most recent ones to express interest. They can start creating characters and posting when they're ready. (Discussion Thread)

Looking for 2-4 more players, chime in if you're still interested.


Still a lot of interest though. Hmm. I may have to be the GM here.

Let me sleep on it. Check back in the morning. :)


We’re all newbies here, Daniel. Come join us!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Okay, all three E's are in! (Ever_Anon, ElbowtotheFace, Evindyll.) I've opened up the discussion thread so you can start talking about character creation. I'll take another one or two more players if other people are still interested in joining.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Alright, I'll just use this same thread for the recruitment, which is now open! I'm looking for four players who are willing to post at least once per day. We will create characters together as a group to establish connections to one another and the NPCs before designing the Ark together as well.

Please post here if you are interested in playing. I'll wait a few days to give everybody a chance to express their interest and then I'll pick the players.


Looks like there may be enough interest for a game. I’ll put up an official recruitment thread on Monday morning.


I was able to find it on DriveThruRPG and download it with no issues. The rules in that book are very condensed, though, compared to the real thing, but it can give you a taste of what the game is about.


I've been reading through the core rulebook for "Mutant: Year Zero" and it looks like it is a very fun game. I am considering potentially running a campaign if there is enough interest. Is anybody interested in playing in such a campaign?


I'd potentially be interested.


I'm thinking of going human champion with the psychic archetype to simulate a kalashtar psychic warrior. :D


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Potentially interested. My two favorite Eberron ancestries are changelings (doppelgangers) and kalashtar. I'll have to try to figure out the best way to represent them in Pathfinder.
