A little bit of light rollplay fun

Yeah, I got sorta bored and was looking through some papers in my room from a long, long time ago... and found a plan for a dungeon crawl!

This is to be a very light thing for fun, no urgency, a sorta mini-RP to enjoy in-between real RPing. Anyone can join in, but max of four adventurers (the rest will be monsters and stuff)

I guess it would go into freeform, as the only rules would be posting order.

Anyone interested? ^^

I am mildly interested. I'll have to consider this a bit more, but doesn't sound bad at all! Really like the "light" angle too.

To describe it a little better, it's just a little something to be doing in-between inportant, big, descriptive "real" game posts.

well, we want to see this thing take off, so...

Darren, could you describe a bit more about the story or background perhaps. Without revealing too much of what will happen in the dungeon, of course.

In the end, people will need to have a reason why their character is in the dungeon, even if it's a light game, right? And even though it's freeform, can you give us an idea of what the power-level of characters should be?

I think this would help you find some interest.

Good luck!

The backstory is... well, the three PCs wake up, remembering only their names and motor functions, having been left with a shortsword, three torches and a firelighting kit. Essentially Level 0.
But with a piece of parchment reading "Find the Orb of Cleft."

They will have a classic archetype which gives a few bonuses, and can combine a few, I guess, from the following list, in a 3.0e manner (pick a class level every levelup)

Any suggestions as to extra classes are welcome.

EDIT: see list in the Q&A thread.

Now, the first three players become PCs. The rest get set into a pool.
This pool of players will be used:
-When a PC dies. Their player will join the pool and another player will take their place, with any character of the same level, but not necessarily same class.
-When we have a big enemy arrive. This enemy will be played not by me but by someone from the pool.

How's that sound?

The spirit of the whole thing will be, well, light and Munchkiny: out-of-character chat between characters is encouraged.

Bonus Karma points will be available for hilarity and awesome stuff.


Points are earned for, as said, hilarity, awesome and victory. Oh, and dying in cool ways too ^^
- A bandit talking happens to be backstabbed by his own son. Bob the Invoker says "Tu quoque, fili mi?". ZING!
- John the Warrior runs the last goblin in the group through with a sword. Gains xp, and ZING!
- The god-like evil invoker makes the warrior's head instantly explode. Tim the Enchanter says, "OMG HAX!". ZING!

New but willing to give it a shot

Hi, I'm new but still wants to give it a shot if you don't mind guiding me through. Will appreciate. And will try to be active as much as possible.

No worries Alvin ^^

It appears that we're already able to go. Sending empty character sheets to you three. Anyone else is to be set into the pool and/or given some monsters to handle ^^

I'll give a posting order, and if anyone isn't sure about the success of their actions, PM me ^^

No, just kidding. I'm gonna need someone to play the first terror that the main characters will come across. It'll be guaranteed fun!

Looking for one or two more players, and someone to play the first encounter.

S'gonna be fun!

So if you either want to help the team attempt to kill the monster, or be the monster and kill them all, come on in!

As Alvin has disappeared (:-/), we need more people. The team would have struggled as 3, so now that they're only 2...

Join in the fun, peoples

Hey! I'm looking for people

I have two options: either antagonist or protagonist.

Trust me, you'll have fun as the antagonist of the moment. After then, you can probably join the good guys anyway
