Hello PbP boards!
I'm leading a few brave souls into the depths of Rappan Athuk, the Dungeon of Graves. We have a couple players who have fallen away lately, and the party is currently being propped up by some NPCs.
I'm hunting for (erm, I mean, looking for) one or two players to join us.
As you might already know, Rappan Athuk is a legendarily difficult dungeon by Frog God Games. It is full of all sorts of nastiness. Prospective players need to be ready to have fun with failure and death.
Dungeon crawls can be intimidating, but consider that I'm running it with an emphasis on storytelling. Expect open-ended encounters with interactive NPCs. I have a sub-focus on building a lively town at Zelkor's Ferry, the home base of the players. There will be lots of homebrew plotlines supplementing the big book, to boot.
Posting frequency is important--we've got a few players doing a fine job of posting nearly every day, and I'd like my new recruits to match them.
Characters are currently level 2, and are about to head underground for the first time. We did a 20 point buy, and I'm limiting materials to Paizo stuff. If you have an unusual idea, I'll listen. Two traits, the normal races, 1000 GP. Run any strange ideas by me before spending a ton of time on 'em, but I might say yes if the idea is fun and cool.
If any of you want a character prompt, I'd happily provide a list of NPCs you could take over, local situations your character might be involved with, current party goals, etc. Just let me know.
Come on down, have a horrifying time with us!
