Anyone fancy running a play by post game on here?

Post by apn on Sun Apr 01, 2012 12:59 pm

I would, save that I run my own already (can't post link on here until I've been a member a week apparently). If there was enough interest and I had time, I'd do it though. Doesn't have to be a long, sprawling campaign, even a simple encounter or two and see how it goes from there?

I think i've removed the link restriction. Can you have a go when you get a chance?

The Vanguard - Darkening Shadows Campaign

There we go. Hope that works. Think we've been on that site for 2 years, and spent a year before that being messed about on another forum which would disappear without trace then come back without warning because the forum owner was a bit of a dick, so we made our own forum. So, 3 years and counting, and I have no end to the campaign in sight (but the players have been stuck fighting world war II for a year so its nearly time to get back to where they were, though that depends on them)

If people are willing I'd be VERY interested at having a go at running a PBP game on here!

Please bear in mind I've only played GOLDEN HEROES to date - just got the pdf of the basic SQUADRON UK rules so I'll need to bring myself up to speed on what's new (so please bear with me!  Embarassed ) but I've missed this game a lot and would love a chance to run it again!

Any takers, true believers? Please let me know?  Very Happy

In a similar situation myself rules-wise. I'd be up for it....

I'd be interested. Have played the new rules but not as much as i'd like. Currently running a (paused at the moment) Savage Worlds Necessary Evil Game on another forum so I have an idea of how these things work.

I have a feeling Kevin may be interested but he's at Games Expo right now running Squadron UK as we speak. I'll ping him a message over the weekend and get him to check in when he's back.

If you want to go ahead with this, i'll set you up a separate area of the forum to host the game if it would help.

I've set up a basic framework to support a play by post game. So far, there is a topic for admin, such as character generation and house rules and scheduling. There is a background topic to allow for posting of notes on the game world. I've also set up in character and out of character topics. In my Necessary Evil game, I also set up a topic for each character so the player could post the character sheet there and use that thread to keep track of experience and so on. I'm happy to adjust to your needs so let me know what you think.

This is great! Thank you for all your hard work!  Smile 

Okay, still familiarising myself with the new rules and this week is going to be heavy work-wise, but I'll start trying to put up some background stuff in the next couple of days so people can get a flavour of what I'm planning to unleash on you all! I think I'll need about 4 players to make it work, but I'll happily take more if the demand is there.

Thanks again for the help. I hope I can do the game justice.  Smile

I'm happy to help. I'm sure more people will jump in. If you need anything else, let me know, either here or by private message. Looking forward to it.

Okay, that's three potential players! Great! Long day today (not helped by taking a minor crack on the head during it  Crying or Very sad ) so I won't be able to do much more tonight, but I'll try and start getting some stuff up tomorrow. I find it usually helps these games along if the GM handles all the dice rolling. Are you guys okay with that? If so, I'll get to work on starting your characters off. I'll just give you the numbers - everything else is up to you!  Smile

Okay, stupidly long day at work and my head's still ringing, but I've managed to at least rattle a few dice. All three folk who have expressed an interest in taking part in the campaign, stand by to receive your initial dice rolls via PM! I think we'll handle character creation this way, just to give your characters a little more sense of mystery when you meet up!

I'm rolling according to the SQUADRON UK basic rules, so everyone's got 8 power rolls and you've used 4, followed by one check for Background. If you'd care to take a look at that, then PM me back how you'd like to allocate your remaining rolls and we'll go from there?  Smile 

To help with origin stories, the time the campaign is set in is THE PRESENT (albeit a present not quite our own) and the place is NEO LONDON - capital of the British Isles in a reality very similar to ours, but one where superheroes and villains have been an established fact for some considerable time. I'll try and get a more detailed background up on the PBP board in the next 24 hours or so when I'm not quite so groggy and pushed for time. Any questions, feel free to PM me.  Smile
