Kill Bargle! Pathfinder RPG OOC Thread
I've been interested in getting back into the GMing swing of things lately, and have been particularly intrigued by the Alpha Release of the Pathfinder RPG. I'd like to try it out on a dungeon crawl called "Kill Barlge!" from issue #150 of Dungeon magazine. This adventure is based on the sample dungeon presented in the old Dungeons and Dragons red box. Like many others out there, this was the first role-playing product I ever bought (or more accurately, which I begged my parents to buy for me) way back in '82 or '83. I didn't have any friends who were gamers back then, so I just created characters and ran them through the various traps and monsters myself.
I also picked this adventure because it is short. In my past forays into GMing at ENWorld I always bit off more than I could chew, and my fellow gamers had to suffer because of that. I created detailed maps of the encounters and stuffed the threads with background materials galore, and all my combat threads become very intricate. Eventually this would become so time-consuming that I'd start to dread each post and I would drop the game and run for the hills. I don't want this game to be a repeat of that.
So having said all that, I'm wondering if there might be four to six players who would be willing to give this homage to the classic dungeon crawl a try using the Pathfinder RPG Beta Playtest. Here are the details of character creation:

I'm interested. Probably going to go Barbarian or Druid (since I won't be able to in 4e once it hits ). I have the first revision of the Pathfinder Alpha, but I'll grab the newest one tonight once I get home.

I'm very interested in the Pathfinder rules. I would like to play (in order of preference)
Pathfinder + SRD only?
I envision a big shoanti or half-orc barbarian, using an earthbreaker and wearing a hideshirt (I hope you include thi equipment; hide shirts are metioned in the druid write-up).

I'm very interested in playtesting the PRPG alpha as well. I, too, am interested in the barbarian, but it looks like there's gonna be a lot of bites on that. I think I'll dream up a Rogue instead.

As this is a dungeon based heavily on one designed my messieurs Gygax, Arneson and Mentzer, there will be a lot for a rogue to do.Originally Posted by Zurai

I'd love to give the pathfinder rules a try so count me in.
I can play an arcanist of some sort, maybe a Varisian sorcerer or an elven wizard.

As it seems like you already have at least four players, I'm interested in lurking in order to get another group's playtest impressions.
I also plan on running a playtest campaign ala Age of Worms. Maybe I'll post it here.
