Looking for Some Volunteers for a Play By Post Game

Post by Kolson on Sun Oct 20, 2013 12:08 am

Hi everybody. Another online gaming buddy of mine is putting together a fantasy hack for the recent Edge System, featured in Fantasy Flight Game's Star Wars RPG Edge of the Empire. The plan is that I will be running a select group of 4-5 players through an original adventure in her new game world using her hacked rules as a mechanics test. I thought I'd ask you guys in case any of you would be interested.

The Pitch: Our adventure would begin with the players travelling with a caravan to a certain city in the Kingdom of Aciadien, a once rich kingdom bordering the Eastern Sea (name subject to change) whose best days are likely behind it. On the final night of the journey, the caravan comes under attack by a mysterious force and a certain object is taken, plunging the group into the middle of a conspiracy most foul. There will be mystery, danger, and fighting. Though not necessarily in that order and in varying amounts!

RP Days: Whenever people post. The Myth-Weavers crowd usually takes its time so it's pretty low pressure. I'd personally be happy with a good post every other day but that really depends on the players.

Mechanics: Each character is made up of a class and archetype, which can be mixed and matched to generate many unique characters. It's really very cool. Most skills also have a related talent tree, allowing you to spend xp on further improvements, somewhat similar to the Social Policies in Civ 5 if you guys are familiar with that game.

For dice we'll be using the dice roller on the Myth-Weavers site itself, with the players including the dice tags in their posts. We'll of course teach you how. The game itself uses unique dice that use symbols instead of numbers to generate effects and outcomes.

Dice Explanation:

Races are currently limited to Humans, Dwarves, Elves, and Halflings, but each one is made up of two subraces, which give slight mechanical differences. Again, fluff is in the very early stages so there currently isn't much in-game lore to differentiate them right now so roll with it. I'm sure Valiyn would be happy to answer what questions she can about them.

We'll of course be playing over on the Myth-Weaver's board, found HERE. If you are interested, you will need to register over there and then tell me your moniker so that Valiyn or I can invite you to the game.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Edit: I'm not sure when we'll be starting. I get the impression from Valiyn she'd prefer to start sooner rather than later but I'm still writing the adventure and we are still gathering players so we'll see. <Shrug>

I'm interested in a slow game using posts. I wanted to practice my writing for some time now and it looks like a good occasion to do so.

Oh GOD.

I'm going to need help to choose my stats. This system is nothing like I have ever seen. I'll learn how to use the dices correctly later, but the rest....

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Sorry, Kolson. Not only I'm still recovering from yet another cold, I suppose once I'm good enough to prepare material for people to really decide to play my scifi campaign I'm sure I won't be able to keep up with both GMing and playing two separate campaigns in forum format.

I guess I could create a character out of a passing fancy, but if the number of people signing up for this exceeds the campaign joining limit, feel free to NPC me.

I got a question, what should we be looking at concerning equipment? Does Simple Ranged include the hand crossbow?


I mean, it is an "Exotic" weapon, but it's handheld and 1Hand usable. I mean, I should assume choosing a Stealth-based or Stealth hybrid class automatically grants a character proficiency with the hand crossbow, but which Weapon Tree would it be assigned to?

Looks interesting, although with everything going on I'd rather not try to take on any more games at the moment. Just don't want to commit to something and spread myself too thin over everything.

@Rory I honestly have no idea about equipment as I am only slightly less new to the system than you. Razz 

You really need to ask Val. If you sign up, I'll add you to the game so you can.

@Snarg That's okay, I understand. Thanks for the consideration. Smile

I guess it can't be helped. I'll be signing up as "Xeel", in honor of the recent playthrough of KH2. Yes it's a Nobody name. No it's not mine. What's your Myth-Weavers username, Kolson? I'd like to name you as my referrer.

It's Ondin Isiri, an old Star Wars character of mine.

Cool. And I chose something different, I'm Elex now. Xeel was too close to "Xeale".
