DnD 4e Campaign - Scales of War (OOC)
« on: May 29, 2010, 21:52 »

I've had DM experience, but I'm not that familiar with fourth edition rules. So what better way to learn than to DM, right? So here's the pitch:

I would like to lead four+ (ideally five+) victims adventurers on a mindnumbing adventure through dungeons, death and whatnot. There may be dragons involved, but the details are still sketchy. Characters would start at level one and be generated according to the player's handbook. ALL special considerations would need to be cleared before acceptance. Depending on how long I can keep your interests, play would continue concievably up to level 30. That's right, if you're willing to keep playing, I've got dungeons to throw at you.

The only character creation tips I will give are this: You're above average people. If you make your character absurdly powerful at level 1, it will die. Also, please send me a list of a couple of items your character would like to see along the track. I'm not guarenteeing the first monster will drop it, but at some point a travelling trader might be willing to part with it in exchange for your firstborn child.

To help set your character in the campaign, you and several others will have formed a band to go off towards the western mountains and Bordrin's Watch, having heard they're dealing with Orcs...again. You were simply responding to a miltia summons, and were rewarded with 50gp for doing so. You may use this in character creation. You do not have extensive knowledge of each other, and are simply travelling companions for the time being.

Just for the record I'm in as well. Got character past Tavana, some details about it will be dropped a bit later when I beat lazy out of myself.

Currently I have four players looking to play, and have sighted two character sheets. Currently I am looking for one more player, preferably a controller.

I suppose I could do it. I'll PM you my Character Sheet as soon as I draw it up.
Edit: PM'd.

Aaaaand we have a full set of eager victims! If anyone else would like to join in the party, let me know, but you'll most likely be held in reserve until one of the players gets bored/dies a silly death because our Cleric got lazy. =)

I expect we'll be ironing out a few character issues for at least another 24 hours, and I'll need at least that long to prep for the first encounter. Prepare for carnage.

HEY! It won't be entirely my fault if someone dies! Well, depending on circumstance.
If you get critted while I'm out of healing, Sorry.

* Madtrixr shrugs

TBH, I'm sure i'll have my hands full with whatever Tavana decides to try and kill us with.

Just mentioning that most of us playing this game also hang around in the chaosforge IRC chatroom from time to time, which helps with coordination and advice and stuff. Not required, but recommended.

The Scales of War DnD thread is looking for another player. One of our current players is getting out due to lack of interest. We currently have all roles filled, so any player type can be chosen. If you're interested in rescuing some people and have dreams of greater glory, please let me know.

I think I'd like to take a stab at this... I'll send my character sheet over by PM.
