Topic: I'm starting a D&D Campaign
Ferret
Poing! Poing!
posted 01-29-2003 12:26:21 AM
I'm looking for players for my campaign. Before you sign up, know that I play an odd form of D&D.

For one, it would be a you be you game, where you transpose most of your own personality into the character.

Second, I use a set of skills called Arcane and Mundane abilities that you roll upon creation of your character. These abilities have the potential to be Extremely powerful. The thing is, monsters also get these abilities, so they would also be powerful. Some of these abilities would alter your character's personality.

Third, besides the list of races in the Player's Guide, I also have a list of 25 additional playable races, although some of them you would have to roll to attempt to be.

Any intersted parties either PM me or catch me in IRC.

I might be interested, but I'm not a fan of random skills, especially when they aren't very balanced (you said "some" will be extremely powerful).

Some are very powerful, but those are on the high end of the spectrum most of the time. (90-100% roll normally). Many of them just give extra skills, stats, or weapon abilities.

Two alternative races:


Pantarians: Pantarians are a beautiful race of bipedal winged panther-men. They are covered with soft black velvet fur which hides their extremely tough skin. All Pantarians can fly at a speed of 36" with a manuverability class B, and are all telepathic. 10% have a 15% non reducing magic resistance among other abilities.

Zintii: Zintii are a cat-like race of humanoids. The common ones range in color from deep tans to mottled whereas the Noble Zintii can be any color imaginable. They can jump 20ft and fall 30 without damage, have increased bonuses to climb walls, hear noise, and move silently, and gain a natural bonus when attacking with their razor sharp claws.

Most likely IRC, unless I can figure out the Grip program that I've heard about.

Let me know when you start, Ferret. I'd love to sit in as a spectator if that's all right.

It sounds like a unique system and I'd love to learn more about it. I couldn't be in the game myself, though, because Friday is my GURPSs night and Sunday I'd be at work and not too attentive.

But I'd love to sit in while using the CGI IRC here

Okay, If you want in, pop into chat so that I can help you get your character started and tell you some of the history.

Also, looks like it will most likely be Fridays, unless too many people have objections.

Ok, I currently have 4 slots taken and I'm willing to take on 2 more players, possibly 3 max. The first people to catch me in IRC to create characters will get them.

We currently have two magicusers, a bard, and a death machine, so I'll most likely consider someone who wants to be a cleric first.

Edit: Oh, and the time for the games will be from 7pm EST on fridays until people want to quit, or 2am , whichever comes first.
