I am going to wait until everyone else chooses so that I can expand my horizons and play something that might not be my first choice.

I've gotten everything printed except lower level 3 of Undermountain. I sent a PM to Solo asking him to set up the thread for us. Once that's up and going we'll set up an OOC lounge, Character creation, and the actual PbP section.

I've read through a lot of the literature already and have 99% made up my mind how we're going to do this.

1) Core BFRPG rules only to start (so I don't get bogged down with supplemental rules)
2) We'll use the Quick Character Generator for stats (I'll roll on the dice roller and PM each persons line number to them).
3) Equipment-You can each roll for starting gold and then multiply that number by your level and purchase your equipment from that (no magic items).
4) Level- You'll each start with 8,000 experience points in what ever class you chose.
5) Magic Users and Clerics get additional 1st level spell slots equal to their requisite ability bonus.
6) You will each receive one magical item. I'll roll once for each of you in the random treasure tables in the core rules and PM you what you've gotten. If it works out that you can use it (i.e. the Fighter gets a +1 Long Sword) then all the better. If not you can sell it or trade it or whatever you want. This is to reflect your most recent adventure and the loot you found while there.
7) Back stories are optional but would add spice to the game.
8) I'd like you to be a known party of adventurers that have gone out "a slaying" in the past. You could be "The Party of the _______" or something like that. This will save game time lost in finding out who is who.

(3d6x10)x your level. We'll need to be sure everyone agrees that this is the route we'll take.

We don't have to agree. You are the DM. You set the houserules. Just like in game, we may try to sale you something, but in the end you make the ruling and we move on.

Sounds agreeable, I am looking forward to getting started. I'll echo HW, as long as you are consistent and fair, by all means take some leadership and set rules. I do appreciate you taking the players input though.

oh yes, I agree the DM should take player input, but not take votes :) DM are judge jury and executioner. DM Dread

In that case starting gold and equipment is decided by rolling starting gold (3d6x10) and multiplying that number by your character class level. Buy your equipment from that money. No magical items.

PbP thread is up. I'm populating it now.

Something to keep in mind folks. PbP games die while waiting. We've all seen it happen. If you can post up multiple times a day it'll keep this thing alive and going. If you can't post up more than twice a day let me know and we'll work something out. This is a massive dungeon crawl. We're tapping the surface with the top three of nine levels. Lots of things to do, lots of stuff to kill, epic treasure and EPIC monsters in lower levels. The more you can post up and stay up to date in the game the better.

Good luck to you all.
