I'd like to play.  Wasn't here when it started up so I didn't get to play it back in the day.

A few random thoughts as I read through MH's post...

GMs - Definitely not required, but I agree that it'd be a big help in keeping things organized. And that way we'd be able to work towards a plot yet still have the "unknown" factor of it, whereas if we came up with the goal, we'd already know where things are headed (to a point).

Baddies - If we go the GM route, I'm assuming the GM will control such things. However, if we do go freeform, I'm sure we could devise a rotating table for who handles the next baddy encountered (and that person retains control of the baddy until his/her/its death).

 The MBG (Main Bad Guy) - He's the one who runs the "Alternate Citadel", and is behind the attack. But who is he? Definitely don't give it away, but the GM (or whoever gets designated to run him) will need to think about it.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)

Well, the main bad guy should obviously be the King of the Barbarian Horde, and his weapons would be the most cliched of villians and villianous plots. I dont have a problem being the Mod of the Plight of the Scribes, so if it is offered, I'll do it.

True, true. That makes perfect sense.

As to being mod, I've no problem with it, though I was thinking that perhaps I'd be the one to do it (as a first GMing endeavor) if no-one else wanted to. You're certainly entitled to be GM though. No problems here.

OHH, and here I was thinking that the baddy was gonna be Nelort, the half drow half gnome assassin.  He's the owner of Nelort's Bar and Tanning Parlor.

Well lets see...

The King of the Barbarian Horde

He is old and wise (15), experienced in the ways of the world, now that he has completed his training in the Black Lotus school of Martial Arts and Sorcery. but he is a half breed, his mother was a Drow Priestess of Lolth and his father was Asmodeus Lord of the Pit, making him half demon, half drow. He wields a pair of magic scimitars, each marked with a heron on the blade. He can channel his spellfire through the blades, making them powerful enough to kill even a god! He also has a magic ring that allows him to become invisible, as well as ethereal. This ring allows him to command the hordes of dead, barbarians, and orcs who flock to his red eye banner.

He is accompanied by a battle harem of similiar but debased half-succubus half wood elf demons who wield yew bows that shoot arrows of slaying. His bodyguard is a flame demon 15 feet tall with a rune crasted axe that bleeds fire, and he can command dragons with a word, counterspell any magic cast at him, and looks way too kewl!

Something quick I don't think was mentioned in the rules, either first game or second. Can we summon scrolls that others have made, or just our own?

I dont think I will have to add this to the other scroll, but the only limitation on summong items from the citadel is that no two people can summon the same thing, so once the General Lee is summoned, no one else can summon the orange Charger. you can use other peoples subs, or your own.
