Hello all. I'm looking to run my first time as a DM. I am looking to run Scales of War to get my feet wet with being a DM and to gather experience. I do not have a date or time set, but the game can be run anytime from Monday to Saturday at just about anytime of the day as I'm at home. i will be using Maptools to run the program and haven't decided it i'm going to use a voice chat program or not as I would be taking care of my 2 young children at the time. For anyone interested, please reply to this thread with dates and times that work best for you and when I have at least 4 players (possibly more) that have a time that works for anyone we will begin. Any other questions, feel free to PM or reply to this thread and I will be able to respond in a pretty quick manner.

GRRR, got rid of my thing. Try to reproduce my post.

I don't have a microphone and I don't plan on buying one. Also, I can only play on Sat (all day though). But I would like to express interest in the game.

I have used maptools and have played/DMed 4e, so familiar with everything.

my questions for you:

what material is allowed/unallowed? What is starting level?

adamgibbons

Starting level will be at 1. There are no restrictions as I either have .pdf, hard copy or my D&D Insider subscription to get access to any info I may not have.

Here's the skinny. I have expressed interest in a chat game run by the DM who runs my PBP game (different game from pbp, though). However, it has been about 2 months and it still hasn't officially begun.

There have been recent developments, but still no official play time. I feel somewhat obligated to it, but at this point, it depends on which game has an official play time first as to what takes priority.

However, I am thinking that one will probably be sat night, so for this game, I will most likely be available for sat day.

As for character, was thinking a human artificer. As for concept/background, I figured I'd wait until I know more about the game so it integrates a bit smoother.

That's fine. I'm still waiting for another 2-4 players as we only have 2 right now. Then we will get something up and running.

I'd be interested in joining. I can do either Friday or Saturday evenings (EST). I'd prefer not using voice chat, as it tends to have moments where everyone tries talking at once, and that drives me right up a wall. :D

adamgibbons
10-08-2009, 09:30 AM
That's fine about the voice chat as I have my little kids I take care of all the time. As for the day, that is still sort of up in the air.

@adam, I put a plug in for this game on an introductions topic:

Maybe send him a PM to make him feel welcome ;).

I would be interested. But keep in mind that I am completely new to 4e.The last time I played P&P was years ago with the basic rules and just a little on the AD&D rules. I've downloaded MapTool (haven't figured out how to use it yet).

I work 12 hour shift on weekends so I am available Mon - Thur 7:00am - noon. My evenings during the weekdays are reserved for spending time with my family, though it could be possible I can be on late at night when the kids are in bed.
And possibly on Sundays 9:00pm or later.

I don't mind volunteering to give you a rundown on 4e.

I spend time with the family on weekdays too. If you aren't busy, we could meet in the chatroom here at PPG and go over things on Saturday. At least non DDI-exclusive things.

Hello! I'll express interest in playing. Mon and Tuesday I'm available anytime. Thursday and Friday I'll be at work, but available to play.

Quasi-experienced player here. I can play any day or time that's not Sunday.

It is looking my other game will commence at 5:30 pm on saturdays (CST), but not exactly every saturday.

adamgibbons
10-09-2009, 09:23 AM
It is starting to look like Saturdays will not work for me. So I am leaning towards probably on Monday.

yukonhorror
10-09-2009, 10:01 AM
ok. I have to crap out then. Sorry.

adamgibbons
10-09-2009, 10:09 AM
Yeah, sorry dude. Good luck in finding a game. If I can end up doing saturdays, I will let you know.

yukonhorror

no its fine. I think my other game is finally getting underway in any case. Good luck in finding people.

Well for those who got a PM from me, we will be getting ready to start. I am going to have a session on October 12th for everyone to go over some stuff for the campaign. I will have it connected by 1pm my time which is 4pm Eastern. The connection info is as follows:

IP: 97.117.253.167
Port: 51234
Password: scales

So those who can make it, great. If not, just get a hold of me some other time. We are also still looking for more players for anyone that is interested.

Do you have a spot for me?

adamgibbons
10-12-2009, 12:47 PM
Yes, there is room for one more person. It will bring our total players up to 5. There is no restriction on race/class. I'm going to try to get a session today to help everyone make their characters, but actual play will begin next week at 4pm Eastern time.

kurtthedm
10-12-2009, 02:01 PM
Okay. Sounds good. Will see you then! Is this gametable or maptools?

adamgibbons
10-12-2009, 03:07 PM
it will be on maptools. due to having to run errands, the meet and greet session will be very likely delayed.
--- Merged from Double Post ---
Sorry about failing to make the meet and greet today. The 2 women in my life had medical emergencies this afternoon. If anyone needs help with their character or otherwise get a hold of me quickly, I can be reached on YIM as a_gibbons@ymail.com, MSN as adamgibbons@hotmail.com, or Skype as adamgibbons1983.

UndeadJack, Mikal_Silverlake, DiscipleofYawgmoth, kkrieg, and kurtthedm, if you guys can get me a copy of your character or at least tell me what race/class you are playing as so I know at least that much it would be great.

Mikal_Silverlake
10-14-2009, 09:53 PM
Sure! I didn't get a PM from you, so I figured I didn't make the cut. :) I'll update a little later with that info.

10-14-2009, 10:01 PM
I apologize Mikal, I thought I had sent you a PM earlier this week.

If you think you'd be ok with it, I've got this huge bag of crazy that I've been itching to open.

Eladrin Ranger (Archery Style Combat.... with a Repeating Crossbow)

Kind of a tinkerer/engineer/pseudo thief Eladrin woman. She's no complete nutjob 'William Tell' sort, but she likes to wear ALOT of hats.

What classes/roles and races are taken?

What level is the game?

I'm up for a leader or a striker.

adamgibbons
10-15-2009, 09:31 AM
All characters are starting at Level 1.

Mikal, if that is how you want to play your character, go with it. It'll make it more interesting.:D

kurtthedm
10-15-2009, 10:15 AM
I can't decide between: a Deva Shaman, dragonborn sorcerer, orc barbarian, or a tiefling bard

Any of these sound good or interested to you guys?

adamgibbons
10-15-2009, 10:21 AM
As it stands, we have 2 Strikers, 1 Defender, and 1 Controller if that helps you decide kurt.

Mikal_Silverlake
10-15-2009, 10:27 AM
I'd say a Deva Protecting shaman would be pretty awesome! :)

kurtthedm
10-15-2009, 08:18 PM
Deva Shaman it is. She is ready. Do you want me to send her to you via PM?

Mikal_Silverlake
10-15-2009, 08:46 PM
That's what I did

adamgibbons
10-15-2009, 09:17 PM
Yes, if everyone who hasn't sent me a copy/brief synopsis of their character via PM or an email could send me one, that would be appreciated.

10-20-2009, 08:40 AM
I won't get off work until 5 and get home until 6:30. So I will be late, sorry- I may see if I can get off work early but we will see.

looks like i missed the 1st session but is it still possible to get in on some of this action?

adamgibbons
10-20-2009, 01:58 PM
I can put you on a backup list, but currently there isn't any space.

kurtthedm
10-20-2009, 05:10 PM
Ah shoot, I totally lost track of the day. Sorrry! I will make it next time though, if there is still an opening for me.

adamgibbons
10-20-2009, 10:09 PM
There is still an opening for you. We will forgive you and all.

I have a few questions acctually. I'm in a game on Sunday's but this just isn't enough to quell all the different characters I would like to play. If you have space available for another play, and your playing Monday,Tuesday, Thursday let me know...I would be more then interested to get another of the characters I have going.

feel free to email me @ matt063@msn.com or skype me as Matt Doer

adamgibbons
10-22-2009, 10:51 PM
We are playing on Monday, but we already have 6 players with an additional 3 people expressing interest. If space comes along later, I will be sure to let you know.

adamgibbons
11-01-2009, 04:53 PM
Just to let everyone know that we are playing at 4pm Eastern Time still, but will only play to 6pm Eastern Time tomorrow due to having to pick up my wife from work.

kurtthedm
11-05-2009, 09:18 AM
Sorry I couldn't make it but work made me stay late, and you guys only had a 2 hour session. I should be able to make it for a full session next week.

adamgibbons
11-05-2009, 09:42 AM
Life happens, so it's ok.

On a side note to the group. Ari will be out for the next month due to a schedule change.

Good evening I haven't been on Pen and Paper for a minute since my previous campaign I was in. I saw your campaign would like join if when you have a opening.
I am very verse in 4E and can play any role that is open.(Favorite is Leaders and Defenders)
I would love to play a Eladrin Artificer not only being a leader type but it adds so much in the roleplay dept to it.
Hope to hear from you

adamgibbons
11-12-2009, 07:58 AM
Currently there is no space open unless the group decides to allow another player in. Otherwise I can put you on the list for future potential players.

adamgibbons
11-15-2009, 08:53 PM
I hope that everyone can make tomorrow's game at the usual time of 4pm Eastern time.

kurtthedm

I'll see if I can duck out of work early.

Mikal_Silverlake

I won't be able to make it this week. We've got company visiting.

Having problems connecting to the server today. We're still on right?

adamgibbons
11-30-2009, 02:48 PM
It should be up now. We will try to see if enough players show up for a game today.

Mikal_Silverlake
11-30-2009, 03:02 PM
I'm not entirely sure what's up. I keep trying to connect, but it just ends up timing out.

adamgibbons
11-30-2009, 03:08 PM
That is odd. Give me a few minutes to try to reset it and see what happens.
