I have been out of the PbP for about 5 months and I'm still about 2 months away from actually doing anything on them. however while I was away I got into a talk with a friend and decided to do a interest check on something with the intention of opening a thread in a few months. anyways here is my idea.
I want to do a fluid classics dragonlance campaign. where the heroes of the lance are not the originals but can be anyone. where I think that Raistlin, Caramon, Sturm, and Kit are essential to the storyline. (and their betrayal, death, etc.) I thought of way to change it if the story calls for it. basically they would be the NPC's in the Pathfinder rules. with parts to play if it came to it. so it would be up to the players on how to move the story forward. my only complaint about the dragonlance classics were that they were a bit railroady and that there were to many predetermined paths. So the premise is that you can submit your take on Tanis or Flint or anyone else. Or you can submit another person that was Solace that are meeting their friends five years later.
a short rule set would be.
1. all mages suffer from the Curse of the Magi- only first level and 0th spells would not be effected. (basically a fort save when you cast.) whether or not they are spontaneous casters or not.
2. if you choose a divine caster you would just add a "holy relic" that could be anything that would be what you cast your spells through until you "unlock" the divine classes.
3. you can play your own version of historical characters or your own. (for example, if you choose Tika maybe you can talk Caramon into leaving his brother, or just simply be there for him. or maybe you create a mage that is a rival to Raistlin, or a lover that looks past his faults and talks him into not turning on the group. Who would Laurna fall in love with? did Sturm have a brother that looks up to him? ) the only players off limits are Raistlin, kit, and Sturm where if the party chooses to continue their destiny they will fulfill their spots. Caramon is open if you have a good take on it.
I am looking for interest only however if dot a simple idea of what you would play would be of help to let me know some of the hurdles I might have to deal with. It can be as long or short as you want. any questions you want to ask I will also answer. we would be using the 3.5 dragonlance allowed races. if there is no interest that is fine because I talked my table group into this. so I thought that since I would be making maps and stuff it would be easy to just scan them and add to a Pbp.
