Need stout hearted players (2E D&D)

Okay, folks. After far too long away from DMing, I am starting a new D&D game.

This will probably be a single adventure only, though I'm not opposed to the idea of a campaign.

The game will be set in Audalis (which means that magic is fairly uncommon), and will be my typical modified 2E rules. In other words, this is old school stuff. You don't have to be familiar with 2E rules, as I'll be happy to help you create a character. I handle arcane magic a bit differently than the rules as written, so be advised of that.

Edit: if you are comfortable rolling up your own stats, please use the "roll 4d6, drop low roll from each set, arrange to taste" method of character creation. I expect higher than average scores, but if you come to me with three 18s, I reserve the right to nerf your character as I see fit.
I need at least four - preferably six - adventurers of third level. Pretty much any class or race is okay, but note that this game takes place in Northeast Ertain - one of the five human kingdoms... the point being that really exotic races would probably be out of place, treated poorly by the populace, etc. I would strongly recommend that each of the four primary roles (warrior, arcane spellcaster, divine spellcaster, rogue) be represented in the party, but that will be up to you guys. I will consider any alignment, but this adventure is best suited for a party of overall good alignment (I prefer stories about heroes, not villains). I will consider kits, within reason, but reserve the right to change or veto anything that I don't like.

I expect at least one post per week, and would like to make it two. If posting is really fast and furious, I'll post more often as I'm able. Posts should be at least 2-3 short paragraphs. I want to read about emotions, thoughts, etc. "I charge the orcs" is not an acceptable post.

Please note that this game is not first come, first served. To be considered, I need a PM from you with a basic character concept, maybe a personality, brief history, etc. I will pick the ideas that I like best, that I feel will form the best team. Edit: to clarify, I need more than a character sheet for you to be considered for this game. In fact, the character sheet is the *least* important piece of it. I need to know who your character is. Why do they adventure? What is their personality? You don't have to give me a full biography, but a bit of history would be good.
On that note, assume that your characters have been an adventuring party for at least a few months. I don't want to waste six weeks posting about meeting in a tavern, and I'm too old and crabby to deal with the moody loner who always works alone and has to be persuaded to help out. I want all questions about party leadership and such hashed out in the Q&A before we start the adventure. Basically, I want to cut out the annoying fluff and get right to the meat of the adventure.

Regarding the adventure itself:

WARNING! This adventure will contain disturbing, adult/horror themes. If you are easily offended, squeamish, or bothered by the macabre, please do not apply. While this game will *not* contain anything truly explicit, the themes prompt me to limit this game to those age 18 and up.

I do not take credit for this adventure; I actually have had this one on my hard drive for years, as it is posted freely online. However, I have adapted it to Audalis, and I have taken the general plot and carried it to some darker, more detailed places. There is a character in this story that literally bothers me, and sadly, this character sprung directly from my twisted imagination.

One final warning: I have a reputation as a killer DM, and to be honest, the reputation is at least somewhat fair. I truly don't go out of my way to kill players, but if you do stupid things ("I charge into the bandit camp alone, using surprise to my advantage!"), well... you made that bed, you get to lie in it. That being said, I *have* killed off players simply because the dice were not kind. Adventuring is dangerous business, and death is a real part of it. If you sign up to play, and you die, please don't take it personally.



Okay. Now that I've done my best to scare you off, please let me know if you are interested.


Accepted players: Hammer (half-sylvari cleric of Kith-jora): Galardil
Brundel (human rogue): Blair
Tuned_Out (human cleric of Merca): Danon
Reralae (sylvari paladin of Falloes): Rae
Nomad D2 (sylvari mage): Jarenion
Vanadia (sylvari bladesinger): En'Aranthea
Kyle (human fighter): Ta'Arms


At this point, recruitment is closed. I will not be accepting any more players unless we have a drop. Thank you all for your interest.

I be In

Howdy! Got your message, and I could go for this. And never mind my question that I PM'd you, catt; answered it myself by opening my eyes and reading-hehe.

I'll put something together and get it to you for consideration in the next couple of days. Working a lot of overtime right now, so I beg forgivenes if I get delayed.

Greetings and Thank You

Thanks Olan

Although it is already posted that my character has been accepted in your game, I will follow the procedure and complete all the info regarding my character that you are requiring of other prospective players!

Complete with Exclamation Points!

well, Hammer

You and I have already discussed the character somewhat via PM, and I know you... so I'm confident than your character will be fine.

Nonetheless

I do have some more developmental work to do on the character, including back story!

wow

Well, folks, I am gratified. In a few short hours, we already have three workable concepts, and all three fill a different major role (divine caster, warrior, rogue).

We definitely need an arcane caster still (aka mage). Note that such a mage could be a Circle mage or not, can be of just about any race, etc.

For the final two slots, I would recommend one more warrior for sure. It would certainly not hurt to have another caster of any flavor. It might be useful to have a multi class character (mix steel with spells).

But again, it's really up to what you guys want to play. Do note that while there will be some problem solving and intrigue, this adventure will probably be fairly combat-heavy.

hmmm....

If you'd like another cleric, with some combat flare, I believe I sent you a character for a previous game... a cleric of Merca...I"m sure I have it tagged in my PM's. Will take a look at that. EDIT: forwarded the old sheet to you; may need to re-roll stats, but the concept remains the same.

Otherwise I could take a look at some other roles.

Just showing interest.

okay

We are now up to four characters. Two full clerics means that the party should be able to take some serious punishment and keep going. It also means that we should have some nice versatility.

I'm going to restate my opinion that it will be essential to have at least one full arcane spellcaster in the party.

Honestly, I think that we need a mage and either another full warrior type (fighter/ranger/paladin) or a gish (fighter/mage).

I also think that it would be nice to have at least one member of the fairer sex in the party. This thing is turning into a major sausage fest!

Hmmmmmmm

Was debating about changing my character to a Female to accomodate the lack of a Female presence, but the route I am taking with the back history in a particular area just does not seem to quite fit, but I could make it work maybe, if necessary ???
