This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

[Recruitment] Ruche's Peace (D&D B/X)
« on: December 25, 2015, 08:53:35 am »
The Pitch
Long ago, the armies of the archmage Ruche Darksong brought the kingdoms of Valuria to their knees. The tale of this defeat is one still sung by the minstrels around campfires and taverns across the land. Many have heard that he was entombed in the Helmsvorn Mountain vale, and that many of his treasures lay there with him. The fire sword, his book of spells, even his cloak was rumoured to be enchanted. It is said his wealth was buried with him as well, for he laid a curse on those who slew him, forbidding them to benefit from his defeat.

As well, the tale is that the tomb has never been found, and never been plundered. You are an adventurer, finding your way to the vale in the Helmsvorn Mountains, only to discover a frigid winter storm is descending on the valley in late autumn, and you may be stuck there until the spring thaws open the passes once more...

Game Details
This is designed to be a PbP, hosted here therpgsite.com. Players are expected to post once each weekday, and will be passed should they fail to do so. All characters will begin as level one, and be fresh faced adventurers out to either find the tomb of Ruche Darksong, or travelling to the valley for other reasons.
Rolls will be handled by the DM (myself), but posted. Interested players, please post your race and/or class combination. The books are available in used book stores, on your own shelf or at dndclassics.com. Message me for help if you don't know what edition of D&D this is.
I am looking for around 4-6 players, and may allow some players to play two characters. The only significant house rule in effect is that of luck points - each character receives 1-3 luck points at character creation, and gains 1 luck point each time s/he levels up. Luck points are used to avoid grisly and meaningless deaths (at player option), or to re-roll any roll the player chooses.

Please post in this thread with interest. The setting is generic fantasy, and the world outside the vale will be developed and detailed as characters are brought into the story. This is not designed to be a comic meat-grinder campaign, but rather a fun romp through a dungeon and encounter series.

Thanks for your interest.

I've been out of action for a while, I'm interested. Can't post any character for a few days as I'm traveling for the holiday and only have my phone.  

You say BX, but then say to post our race/class combination. Want to make sure you're talking about Moldvay BX, which has race as class.  If so, I'll take a fighter or cleric, depending on what everyone else is playing.

Yes, I noted "race" for those who maybe haven't played any version of Basic D&D and didn't know it was all "Classes", but some of these were racial Classes. The clarification is helpful though.

Player Roster at Present
1. Technomancer: Fighter or Cleric

Doesn't look like there's a lot of interest. Ah well.

We've been hitting a slump of late. Don't take it too hard. Also 'The Holidays' is a difficult calling period for pretty much everything.

I'd say yes, but I am not as familiar with BX. If you could handle most of the rules side of things, especially with the rolling already offered by you, I could do it. PbP is a very different animal I've come to learn, as off-loading to GM tends to make it swim faster.

Try again later! I know I will for my games. :)

You know, people keep comparing non-TSR D&D to deck-building in Magic: the Gathering. But maybe it's more like Katamari Damacy. You keep sticking shit on your characters until they are big enough to be a star.
