Play by Post, Castle of the Mad Archmage

Post Thu Apr 24, 2014 7:56 am

So having been playing in Jan's excellent Undermountain game has started giving me the itch to run a PBP game of my own. Seeing as the megadungeon concept seems to be working so well in that game I thought I would offer those interested a chance to run through another, newer, but equally excellent megadungeon. The Castle of the Mad Archmage.

If enough people seem like they would be interested I will try my hand at running it.

A few things to keep in mind:
1 - I will be using my own house rules. They only things they change are races and classes, and only minor changes at that. Several classes beyond the core 4 will be available as well.
2 - The game will be almost entirely set inside the Castle. If you are not one for endless dungeon crawling, then this might not be the game for you.
3 - I am looking for between 4 and 5 people. If I can't get at least 4 then I probably will not run this game.

Happy adventuring!

That one is on my wish list but I would love to tackle it as a player before I purchase it - I'm definitely in.
The problem with doing something really stupid to impress people is that they may just be impressed by how stupid you really are.

From what I have read (I am only on level 4 of like 13) its excellent. Lots of room for GM expansion as well, which I love.

So that's three.

Cool that's four. I now have a few questions.

1 - Can you post at least once a day?
2 - Would you mind if Hyway joined in? He wanted to join but didn't want to take a spot from someone else.
3 -I am thinking of not going as crazy with house rules as I originally planned. So expect a game closer to the core. I will put together a quick set of house rules and link it in my sig.

I don't mind Hyway

As I'm a newbie here, if the numbers are important, I am willing to give way to Hyway.

I can post every day but am on GMT/BST rather than US time

Oh no, Hyway isn't taking anyone's spot that's why A asked. He wanted to give others a chance to get into a game. And its cool for posting time as I am in Italy and will be completely out of sync with everyone else.
