View Full Version : The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh

06-02-2009, 02:23 PM
Hi everyone,

I'm looking to recruit friendly players who are interested in some classic roleplaying. Let me give a little background information on myself and my group. I've been running online and tabletop games for about ten years now. I started out using second edition but quickly switched to third edition once it came out.

After spending so much time with third edition, I've decided it's time for a change of pace. I'm planning out a new game in second edition, centered around the U-Series of Modules, starting with the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh. I've never run these modules before, but they are widely considered to be classics and I think they will be a lot of fun.

Two players from my previous gaming group will be joining us, but I'd like to find about three new players to join in. This game will be primarily play-by-post, so my only stipulation is that players be able to post regularly. My usual request is that players spend at least ten minutes a day checking posts and replying. I also hope to have regular chats over Yahoo! Messenger too to speed things up.

My games usually emphasize detailed characters and roleplaying. We'll probably spend quite a bit of time before the game deciding how all of the characters met and came together. The U-Series of modules also focuses heavily on problem solving, so players who are mainly looking for hack-n-slash will probably have a lot more fun with another group. The game will be light-hearted, but it will focus on character development and plot.

If you're interested, please feel free to email me at warriorsage_silvanus@yahoo.com and I'll be able to give you some more information. Here is a link to the group, which I've just created: http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/sinistersecretofsaltmarsh/

Sounds like an interesting game. Although it's mostly role playing, which edition is it going to be based from?

Nevermind, I just saw it's 2nd edition. Oops!

I love your concept and had I any free time I would certainly be aboard, sadly I run a similar game here though as well as a few others off site. Good luck though, hopefully you'll find some players that will really appreciate your storyline and work. If you don't mind me hopping aboard as a lurker/reader I might be able to squeeze in some play every once in awhile. (I'll send a request to the yahoo group.

Thanks for the kind words! Feel free to join in as a reader, especially if you'd like to join in sometime later. I'll be putting some considerable work into the group over the next few days to get things ready for the game to start up.

Already joined the Yahoo group, will go in and read over the group. Do you know what setting it will be played in or will this be a homebrew campaign world?

The module suggests running it in Greyhawk, so I'm going to go ahead and place it there. I'm actually fairly new to the Greyhawk campaign setting, so I'll probably downplay the setting initially until I'm a little more comfortable with it.

The group is still pretty barren at the moment but I'll have some more information up soon.
