Dungeon Crawl Player Request (Currently Open for players)
« on: June 19, 2009, 06:12:50 PM »
Anyone interested in a RP-light, combat heavy dungeon crawl type adventure? Game system would be 3.5 with some alterations (less emphasis on position and reach).

Let me know if there is any interest here.

Sounds fun, as long as it doesn't mean you're giving up on Respite. I was actually in the mood for a nice dungeon crawl; I actually pulled out a pad of graph paper, a few moments before reading this, to draw out a dungeon. Count me in!

No, I'm not abandoning Respite - there does seem to be a lull there though.  I will continue to post there.

Exploring ancient domains of mystery, looting them and killing their inhabitants? I'm all for that.

So - what level will we be, what races and classes can we play? What skills will be useless in this setting?

Okay, I'll start up a proper startup thread.

Unless there are arguments, the same basic rules as for Respite's startup -3rd level, limited book selection (unless you can provide me with the specs, and they are not too wild.)

Roleplaying skills will be less important I suspect - though I suppose anything is possible.

Interactions with the real world - equipment purchases, etc, will be dealt with in summary.  Gear will be necessary.

Turns will have a faster turnover then Respite - and so default actions will need to be laid out in more detail - if in doubt, I will use your character's general archtype to determine actions to prevent delays. However, it is unlikely GM posts will come faster then 1 per day.

Death will also be closer in some ways - the setting will be mostly underground and will be quite dangerous.

If the party does not have a good balance of classes, things will not go well for them.

Re: Dungeon Crawl?->The Ruin of Hulathin Player Request
« Reply #8 on: June 30, 2009, 06:40:19 PM »
The Mound of Hulathin

A maze of shattered masonry, Hulathin was once a jewel in the Empire of Nor?s crown. It was a mighty trade hub before the Great Quake of Bloodyear.  By imperial decree the city was abandoned, for such disasters had visited it time and again, and the empire decided to heed the obvious will of the Gods.
For years the empire cordoned off the graveyard of thousands, until the civil war shattered the empire. The garrisons abandoned their posts to return to their homelands, and now the city lay open to the looter?s pick.
A small town supporting the ?recovery? efforts sprung up nearby, and it was there your company formed to harvest the lost treasures of an empire.
The earthquake was divine will, wasn?t it?



4-8! Players for a Play By Post D&D 3.5th Edition Game.

Play will start with 4 confirmed players, with additional being allowed to join as they become available.


Posting:

I will do my d**nest to frequent posts.  PCs MUST provide default actions with their characters to let me know how to handle their characters will react if their posts are too slow.

I may take liberties with PC's actions once I understand their PCs but will not place PCs in no-win situations. That will be up to the PCs 
   
Game Mechanics:[/b]
 
D&D 3.5 Edition
 
Following Books used:
 
PHB
DMG
Complete Adventurer
Complete Arcane
http://www.d20srd.org/

Others at my discretion.

 
Stat Generation:
 
Random Selection- I will generate several sets of stat numbers whose value will remain unknown, you select which one.  Once selected, you can arrange as desired.
 
Starting Level:
 
3rd
 
Equipment:
 
   2700gp unrestricted purchase. Somewhat typical D&D world with Boomtown (inflated) prices.
Classes:
Wide open within limits already given on rulebooks. Rogues and Clerics should be present unless appropriate magic items have been purchased in quantity to provide healing and trap detection.
 
Races:
 
     Subject to negotiation - standard races preferred. Some races on Strolens _may_ be used, requiring negotiation.  Since characters start at 3rd level, it is possible that races slightly more powerful than humans may be used. This of course will count against your character levels.

Alignments:

    Good or Neutral only. 


House Rules:
No Confirmation Roll for Critical hits.  They are _supposed_ to be fluky.

Wizards may cast on the fly, but a casting roll against 5+Spell Level will be required, failing will blow a random spell currently memorized at the targeted level.

Backgrounds:
Desirable, but no need to go overboard. Little interaction outside of the dungeon and the local boomtown is likely.

I'm frequently the defender / striker of my group, so I think I'll try my hand at the mage.

Sorcerer seems more appropriate for combat-oriented gaming. Stat set number 1 please.

Stat set #6 please. Will Scout (from CAdv) be OK? I can provide range support and do some rogue stuff too.

Catfolk have +4 dex, +2 cha, +1 level adjustment, +1 armor and a base speed of 40, low-light vision, and +2 to Listen and Move Silently. Sneaky!

Also, you will be a semi-established party, knowing each other to a degree that you would join then in salvaging in the ruined city.
