OOC - Mad King's Monkey (Thread Closed)
It has been awhile since I have been around the boards, but I have found myself back here, with a hankering to play. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much in the way of fairly generic low level 3.5 games going, so it looks like I might have to start my own.
The plan is to start with a blank sheet of paper and outline a fairly generic setting with some simple broad brush strokes. Then pick a theme for the party, generate some characters and crack on. I am also going to be asking for a fair bit of player input from the setting generation to the character generation and probably beyond.
Character generation will be Core rules only to keep it simple. I have chosen 3.5 because that is the system I am familiar with. It is also easily accessible to all through the SRD's on line. Pathfinder is another option, although I have no experience with it. If the majority has a preference for Pathfinder, I will look into it.
The idea will be to keep the initial adventures fairly short and simple, with the goal being to get a couple completed fairly quickly. From there, we will see how we are travelling.
I would like to use the Epic Six (E6) concept. Given the pace of PbP, this is unlikely to impact at all on the character's advancement. It will, however, change the dynamic of the game a little, as in E6, a second or third level character is starting to become a person of significance.
So, if you are interested, or just curious, post up and say hello and we will see where we are.
