Recruitment: Kulan: Shackled City Legacy PbP Game (On Hiatus)

Knightfall

Okay, now that I've steadily gotten my four pbp games* moving forward (although I'm worried that the Realmsian Dragonstar game is dying), I'm thinking of starting up a fifth game, which I'll be running here on EN World.

This game would be set on Kulan, which I why I'm posting this here, and I'm thinking of either setting it on Harqual or on Kanpur. If I go with the latter, it might be a second Bluffside game that runs alongside the game currently going on on The Piazza. However, it wouldn't be connected to that game. The PCs would start at 1st-level and it would take place in a different district or possibly on nearby Sordadon.If I go with Sordadon, it will be a Swashbuckling campaign. Arr!

(Another option is to restart the Bard's Gate game from scratch with different PCs and a different adventure. But, I think I need to reread that book in more depth before trying to set a game there again.)

A Harqualian campaign would likely be centered around my homebrewed version of Waterdeep, but it's more of a longshot to startup such a game.

Another option is to create a legacy game that is centered around Cauldron City. I ran the SCAP for an in-person gaming group some time ago. After it ended, I made the PCs important NPCs in the region. A new online pbp gaming group would create new heroes that could be connected to the old heroes in some way. (DM's Note: There has not been enough time that has passed for the old PCs to have had children, so the new PCs wouldn't likely be relatives.)

I've just finished redoing the map for the Kul Moren Mountains Region as a hex map, which I still need to post on the KWJ, but since it is done, I have a solid basis for a new campaign centered around Cauldron City and the rest of the region. (And, no, it won't be the Age of Worms or Savage tide APs.)

For those interested, I'd like a serious commitment for the game. You wouldn't have to post every day, but I would expect at least one post a week.

I am, as always, interested. However, I'm in 4 games currently and with my wedding coming up in a month, I cannot guarantee I have enough time to fully commit.

Which means I want in, but there is a chance I might drop out.

As far as region or setting is concerned, I have no real preferences.

Well, since you're in the Crow God game, you have a spot if you really want it. And if you have to drop out, so be it. Or if you have to take breaks from the game, so be it. You've been a good player, so I'm flexible.

As far as region or setting is concerned, I have no real preferences.
The more I think about it, the more I want to go with the legacy game set in Cauldron City. It know the setting well and I've placed Mor's End* in the same region, so it could become a Cauldron/Mor's End game. I just have to figure out which module I want to start with.

* The old EN World city project.

Okay, definitely going with Cauldron as the campaign's starting point. A return to the Shackled City!

I'm already excited. Now, where's that hardcover?

You might get more potential players if you post a short message on the Playing the Game subforum. There's plenty of people looking for games!

Yes, I will do that too, but I wanted to give my current players a chance to get spots first. Plus, i posted in my World of Kulan Facebook group with a link to here.

I'll put up something in the PtG forum a bit later today.

Thank you for giving us dibs. I know you'll run another excellent game. As it happens I have yet to experience a game set in the Shackled City. I am definitely interested with one caveat. I am expecting the birth of my second grandchild in the next few days while my youngest son has a school trip for a couple days I'm playing chaperon to and a conference over Easter weekend. I really won't have time to do any serious character building until after April 16th. At that point things will slow down considerably for me. Depending on how quickly you need to get started I would like to play.

So just to confirm, this would be a swashbuckling game starting at 1st level? 3.5? I can at least start getting an idea.

There is no rush at this point. It will likely take another week for me to figure out where the game and where it might go. The game will likely start before mid-April, but I'll save you a spot, regardless.

It won't be a swashbuckling game. That had been my plan if I was going to set it in Bluffside. Right now, I'm not sure what it's going to be other than it will be built on the bones of the old SCAP campaign. There might be cultists and there will be dungeon crawling. And there will be a mystery to solve.

The game will likely start at 3rd-level, not 1st. It won't be any higher than that.

So, I'm thinking 4 to 6 players for this campaign. Tellerian has the first main spot. The fifth and sixth spots are held for [MENTION=6776182]JustinCase[/MENTION] and [MENTION=11520]Scotley[/MENTION], if/when they can play. That means I'll want three more full-time players for the game.

Sounds good. I'll definitely want in on this. Given that I'll be a little late to the party I'll be happy to fill any role that gets skipped, usually that is the cleric, but sounds like it is covered already which is awesome. Will keep watching.
