EDIT: For now, the game is full. No new applicants will be considered at this moment, but that might change in the future.
Anyone interested in viewing the game, can follow this link - but please refrain from commenting there without permission from me (which you could ask for in this thread.)http://www.rpgcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?f=11584
First off, this is going to be loosely based off a book I am writing, so some details might be a little hazy or incomplete, and discretion is a must. I do not want any theft of my ideas as I wish to be am author - however I doubt this should be a problem (90% of what will be included in the story will be built around a secondary, less important section of my story - as much as I would love to share the whole thing, it is far from complete. The section I will be using will be mostly created from scratch in-game, using notes I have made before time. This means less combat and loot, but heavy RP elements.)
3.5 rules. Pretty much all content from 3.5 is allowed, and most supplements and custom stuff should be fine - run it by me, I will let you know how it will fit into the story. No alignment restrictions, but keep in mind I will not tolerate bad RP - if you are evil and team with a bunch of goody two shoes, you should still RP evil - you will just need to be a lot more careful about how you do it.
This will be played in Play by post format on RPGCrossing.
Backstory is semi important - everyone will be somewhat naive in-game, due to certain happpenings, however you can choose to play any type of character you want.
Setting: Your characters have been born in a golden age - adventurers are rarely needed, and magic is at a pinnacle of perfection. Almost everything you know has run off magic since you were born, and death and diseases are rare. Life outside the large cities is somewhat more hazardous, but an elite gaurd of swordsmen fitted with fantastic magical artifacts keep anything nasty at bay.
Your lives have been relatively sheltered as a result - evil people are somewhat rare as greed is folly and power is not overly sought after (for good reason, nearly everything you could ever want has been given to you by the powers that be - the royal family is most generous.)
The cities are all somewhat encouraging to sloth and laziness, however there is always enough to do for those with the desire to. Work in general thrives, from forgework to street cleaning, almost any profession you could imagine.
~~Most recently there have been rumors of some of the more reclusive mages making huge discoveries in magic, which leads the citizens to rejoice (though they have no idea why), and several large posters have gone up in the city recruiting help in "magical research" - a task that would pay handsomely. Sadly, the call has gone so far unheeded - the people want for nothing, and with little lust for adventure, they can not rationalize such a risky decision. On the other side of the law, the few ragtag lowlifes have been hearing whispers of fantastic riches if these experiments were to fail.~~
Extra info (updated as needed - most questions of importance will be repeated here with relevant info).
Stats will be "standard roll" 3d6 rolled 6 times. Feel free to re-roll abysmal scores, power-playing wont help you much, and we will be using the honor system - you could invent scores if you wanted, as long as they are believable - I prefer honesty though.
Character sheets (if memory serves) should be built into RPGcrossing, so all your details should go there. Before doing any rolling I advise you submit your characters backstory and class details, and thier general mentality - these are things I consider very important.
As of right now the party will be consisting of approx 3-5 players. Quality of characters may influence these numbers. Spectators are welcome, but PbP is notoriously slow, dont expect much activity. I would appreciate a post per day per player, but the maximum time without posting will be 1 week - I have already concocted ways for characters to mysteriously die or vanish, so if you will need a leave of absence, contact me, dont just dissapear. Unforseen circumstances will allow for characters to be restored, I am very fair.
Feel free to ask any questions, applications can be filled in below.
