So I've had a bunch of emails and such asking me to restart an old game, a new game, or the like..
Sooo.... thinking it over, mulling over this whole new fitness / mental health kick I've been on this year.. I think it's a good idea. So here's the lowdown.
CAMPAIGN WORLD: AUDALIS
CHARACTER CREATION GUIDELINES:
Race: Audalis Specific:
Alignment: True Neutral and up
Classes and Books allowed: PHB 1&2 Complete Series, Ultimate Series Compendium Series, Green Ronin Sourcebooks (Ie pocket arcane, pocket divine, pocket magicka, the assassins guide etc etc)
Other classes and or books may be presented to be allowed at my discretion.
CHARACTER CREATION METHODS:
All characters will Distribute the following Stats as seen fit prior to Racial Modifiers, and the level 4 bonus stat point.
9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18
This will allow for a stronger than normal character without all those perfect rounded +Modifier scores for every stat, and still some sign of imperfection and mortality with that ever disdained 9 hanging about.
Character starting Wealth: 13,000gp
No single Magic Item may cost more than 4500gp:
Non DMG Magic Items or enchantments such as those from the Magic Item Compendium etc purchased must have their description and source reference included with your character sheet when submitted for my easy reference.
Traits and Flaws may be taken, Traits will be followed and flaws (max 2) will be taken advantage of as the DM to the fullest extent I can, so you are forwarned.
Examples of Flaws and Traits can be found at FLAWSTraits
Character Submissions must be Pm'ed to me and not Posted here...
Characters must have a background, and a dossier of what the other players WOULD KNOW about your PC...
STARTING CITY: BAYRIS
All the Pc's will have previous knowledge of each other having worked together in some capacity before, brought together either by promises of wealth, pride, adventure, honor whatever the case. You will all be working for the newly formed Adventuring Guild named the Crimson Blades:
The Kaelyn Initiative:
As anyone who has played with me before will attest. I will write the story, I will present the opportunities, but the ultimate decision is yours.. If I present save the princess, or aid the dragon, and the pc's decide "forget them both we'd rather go raid a village" Then that's exactly what will happen. My games are VERY PC Driven, and consequences to EVERY action good bad or otherwise are always taken into account.
CD POINTS will be used in this game, and will be explained in further detail later on.
After all Submissions WITH BACKGROUNDS have been accepted. Each PC will be pm'ed a unique piece / pieces of information known only to them that they believe as truth that could ultimately affect things down the road.
Comments questions concerns... Ask away!

yeah Okay I get you're writing it now and you probably think its the game's idea that's gonna draw attention and all but I'm already interested... Crap... Running... low... on... time... Was planning on starting my own game... AAARGH!!!
... Okay I'll have to wait until (writing it now) turns into something incredibly tantalizing and I just can't resist. Hm... Watching... Waiting... Tearing up my schedule...
EDIT: Hmmm... Level 4 eh...? Alright well I will have to keep my eye on this thread damn it.

Just as I expected. I will be working out a character concept in days to come in hopes of playing with you. Level 6 I like better for some of the ideas I have, I'll be running them by you soon enough I hope (through PM of course). As we are both in Tek's game I'm assuming you won't be needing a writing sample. How dark of a game are we looking at?

I'm introducing something only the players of my original setting Nomachron or other games hosted here would recognize, something to hopefully set my games apart from the rest. and with that I give you, CD points. (Character Development Points)
Once every Major Update (approximately 1/week) The Pc's will have the opportunity to each award one (1) CD point to ANOTHER Pc based on their post(s)throughout that week. CD points are given to someone who you think wrote an outstanding post, something entertaining, really in character despite character safety or gain, or generally an improvement or extra effort from previous posts. Players are NOT required to give out CD's every week. These are something special. You may publicly post why you're giving a CD point to someone in the Q/A, or simply Pm your choice to me.
CD's are CUMULATIVE! And are not turned in. Each level nets you the listed reward! So lets see how this goes.
Character Development Chart:
5CD's: Monetary Bonus
10CD's (1 time bonus) +1 rolls, skill checks, saves for one encounter
(state in OOC along with post if you're using this)
15CD's Monetary Bonus#2
20CD's Reroll one failed roll (state in OOC along with post)
25CD's Magic Item of DM's Discretion
50CD's Get on your knees and pray card- (Dm may intervene/fudge a roll to save your hide-since you're such a credit to the game)
75CD's-Character Affecting subplot. (For such outstanding efforts, I shall write a character specific quest or subplot to allow for great potential gain be it wealth, reputation, something personal or otherwise based on your character up to this point)
100CD's -bonus Level

If only I'd have the time, I'd definitely join this one. But I would just drag it down, so I'll settle for lurking this time.
I have no background in Audalis whatsoever, but I will learn. I'll come up with a concept and get something written up when I find I free moment. If you get enough players before I get submitted then I guess I'll just miss out on the game.
I'm hosting THis game in our homebrewed audalis as opposed to my own world, or a more commercial campaign setting such as Forgotten Realms or Greyhawk, is that all the information you could possibly need is here on the site...
in that handy lil pull down menu wayyyyy up... there....*points*
