Player Request - Bleak Wood [FULL]
« on: September 23, 2007, 10:36:33 AM »
Ladies and Gentlemen, I have an opening in the Bleak Wood game and Uncle AG wants you

Know this:
1. Bleak Wood is bleak. It is a post apocalyptic horror-action roleplaying game, and not anything  like high fantasy. Yes, you will be killing stuff, but only the cunning of the player separates him from certain death. You will not be protected by high levels, vast amounts of magic items and an immense pool of hit points.

ONE GOOD HIT AND YOU MIGHT DIE!

2. Bleak Wood has an emphasis on roleplaying and many of the characters in the game are flawed and twisted. This is not a stroll in the woods, with unicorns and werewolves. Rather it is a half dead crawl through the desert, with hungry mutants and outlaws dogging your every step.

3. The game is explicit in every way possible: explicit violence content, explicit sexual content and explicit dialogues.

The game is for grown ups.


So, if you are okay with this and want a break from standard fantasy, please join us!


Oh, by the way:
This game will require that you post at least twice a week.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Okay-dokey! I am working on stuff now. Expected to be done by now, but it needs some polishing. A matter of hours.

You can start posting as soon as you have described and posted your character, dark dragon. Just put a "work in progress" label on it, so that people know that it might change.
