[ooc] - Dogville - a bloody 3.5 game [5/5]
I'm bored and I have some time on my hands. So I am going to run a game. Its going to short and bloody. Short because things are up in the air at the moment and I don't know how long I will have to do this. Bloody because, well, I'm bored. So don't expect too much in the way of plot. Expect lots of monsters.
I'm going to use the Pathfinder town of Sandpoint as the setting. I'm probably just going to crib generally from the Pathfinder setting material. If I knew that had the time, I would probably be running their adventure path. Pathfinder material can be found at the piazo website. "Pathfinder RPG Alpha Edition" and the "Rise of the Runelords Players Guide" is available as a free .pdf download from piazo. You aren't required to be familiar with them.
But they are pretty good.
I'm thinking 4-5 slots.
- Character Creation -
2nd level. Generate stats however you wish. Most NPC's will be in the 20-24 point range. Any race/class from any material. I am familiar with the core races and classes. Anything else, it will be your responsibility to keep me informed. Maximum HP at first, half rounded up at subsequent levels. 800 gold starting wealth. Spend it on whatever you wish.
The game will be loosely E8'ish. In other words, 8th level is about as far as people can advance, and anyone reaching this level would be somewhat legendary in stature. 6th level characters would be notable heroes. 4rd level characters would have started to make a name for themselves. 2nd level characters would be considered competent.
I'm going to insist on one thing. The PC's must form a small team. A band of mercenaries, gypsy entertainers, hippogriff hunters, whatever. Its up to you to decide. The PC's don't all have to like each other, they just need to have reason to work together.
- Game Style -
The goal here is to shovel in as much fun as time allows. If you are not having fun, post up and say something.
I'm not ghosting PC's, and I'm not hanging around waiting for people to post.
I'm not going to spend a lot of time rooting around in rule books and calculating modifiers. Most of the time I'm going to just eyeball it and fly by the seat of my pants.
officially old and grumpy
