My all around workload is significantly reduced this year and it is my
very great desire to actually get an RPG campaign off the ground.
This post is just going in here for me to send links to potential
players so ignore it as you will. On the other hand, feel free to
comment or even put your hand up for a spot.
Here's my thinking so far:
Planning to start probably early April. I'm still looking for a
rental at the moment so I'm giving myself plenty of time to get
into a new house and then get organised too. Thinking of fortnightly
sessions probably on Fridays nights. I don't think I will have any
problem getting a full table (I have three sons and a brother who
are very likely player candidates) but I am keen to try my hand at
some G+ Hangout sessions.
This may just be a way to get extra players to the game or I might
think about running secondary sessions through Hangouts only.
System is yet to be set. I'm keen to use something that everyone
can get access to the rules to easily and freely. Most potential
players have some D&D experience so I'm thinking Swords &
(Classic aka "Basic" D&D) or
OSRIC (1E AD&D), all well
house-ruled. Alternatively we could go for something rules-light
like Risus or I also wouldn't mind
getting to try Fate Core (or
FAE). Let me know
your own preferences in the comments or contact me directly.
I'm open to other suggestions but I'm thinking that I will set the
campaign in a pseudo-historical Earth setting that has been taking
form in my mind (on and off) over the last many years. Thinking of
centring everything around a megadungeon of some sort. Might even
use the early releases of
I've got some big ideas about communication during the campaign and
I would like to make a nice central place for discussion outside of
game time. I'm thinking of a G+ community but if we all just added each other
to a "Game" circle that would probably work just as well. In case
you haven't noticed a pattern yet, it might be worthwhile setting
up a Google+ account if you haven't yet, between hangouts and
communications I'm planning to make good use of it.
EDIT: Of course, Google Plus no longer exists, so this no longer
That's as far as I've got... So please add to the comments, let
me know what you think or what you want. Game on.
