Raven Crowking's Fantasy Game

I would like to play Raven Crowking's Fantasy Game which can be foundhere. The setting is likely to be "mostly" homebrew, but I may use material from existing settings. For one thing I am considering using either a modified Nentir Vale, or one of Rob Conley's Points of Light microsettings. It will be a sandbox game. So I'd like to see some backgrounds tied into whatever setting we do end up using, so you're characters have motivation to adventure.

Seems there is a Beta test rules in post #8 of that thread are those the rules you are wishing to use?

I will give them the once over next week and let you know I may be more interested in just helping along with questions and such for now. Though I do love RPing LOL.

My vote is for a generic map - like the Nentir Vale - but with a homegrown history/backstory.

Yep.

Another thought I had on the setting is a modified version of Greyhawk combined with Blackmoor. But it will probably be in some relatively undetailed part and canon will only be used when it suits me, so it probably won't be much different than the other idea. In fact they aren't mutually exclusive.

Massive?? It is just like all other RPG games almost half the 319 pages are on spellcasting, magic and spell descriptions.

I am liking the combat skill ranks and want to see how this INIT system plays out. FM you think we could both make a warrior (with different styles) and go goblin whacking?? :p

Hey I have two players, cool. I'm not sure how much longer I should wait to start the game up. We could do it with two players, especially if you used hirelings, but more players would be better.

Fafhrd and The Gray Mouser

I'm up for a test run but not over familiar with the rules. Instead of a campaign how about a one shot adventure to get are feet wet.

Will need character gen rules also.

I am defintely up for that, what about this for an idea of a 2 man band: I go elf archer you go dwarf warrior. I mean if it works for Lord of the Rings it can work for us.

There are many other combinations, I sort of wanted to play an Orc Rogue but really I am up for anything

I'm down for a one-shot. Maybe if you want to continue afterward then we can expand it into a campaign, but a one-shot seems like a good place to start. As for character generation, just use Invisible Castle to generate you're ability scores (use 4d6, drop lowest). 1st level characters.

I'm up for it sounds very kool, Orcs aren't in the RCFG but if the DM let's you swing it what would be the fighting style your Orc Rogue would use so I can think of a counterbalance.

I meant half-orc, he wil become some sort of champion of the poor and downtroden. I think this would work out because of the need to flank so together we can take something down very quickly.

What's going on with gp? I don't know if it is in the file or not

Page 71:

All characters in RCFG start play with 3d10 x 10 gold pieces with which to purchase equipment. This money may be spent on the equipment described in this chapter, or may be retained as coinage, or any combination thereof. This may represent actual purchases, heirlooms, the result of wages or theft, and so on.

Thanks for clarifying, another question could I sneak attack with a large weapon...like an executioners sword?

So your thinking agressive major damage?

What if I went halfling warrior got my dex up to a +4 modifier and wore a chain shirt and heavy shield. 21 AC at 1st lvl and then went major attacking light damage or did that 1/2 and 1/2 combo.

We would be a pair LOL.

Well think of a thug, very opprotunistic to deal as much damage as possible. All I need is someone to distract the guy so I can get up close and put down the hurt.

At this point he is a Half-Orc Rogue with a big sword and knives in his belt for throwing or as a hidden weapon. He is also a butcher by profession who likes to read a lot. He looks like this except with a shirt:

I think I'll allow you to make sneak attacks with the executioner's sword, except I may rule it can't be done in certain circumstances.

Then I will go High Defense/High Attack bonus, little damage my job being to watch your back when we have muitple targets and to flank when we have one. ;)
