View Full Version : New Campaign

01-03-2011, 07:12 AM
Hi everyone.
I am looking to start a new campaign. I would like to run a fantasy game, but I'm still open to the genre (futuristic would work too). Basically, if I'm available, and I have over 50% of the players online, then we can play a game. I would like to play at least twice a month.

I want to use a d20 system, possibly BESM d20 (for it's classless aspect), Pathfinder (fantasy) or Star Wars Saga (futuristic). But I'm open to suggestions. The "world" will be custom, with players helping me flesh it out. I don't know Pathfinder (or Star Wars) well enough to make a genre specific game. I'm pretty easy going with the rules (I try to have fun first).

If you have any questions, or are interested, please let me know. You can post here, or e-mail me directly.

Are you familiar with the Mutants and Masterminds system? I have been dieing to play some supers since I got my copy of 3e.

Got excited when I saw BESM mentioned, but blah it is d20. Good luck on the game none the less.

I would like to play your Pathfinder game if you decide to go that route

I have played that, and I did try to do a supers game, but it didn't work out with my running it. My friend is starting one, but he's full up on players.

For me, M&M is alot like the Silver Age Sentinels d20 system (another system from Guardians of Order).

I like BESM d20 (and any Guardians of Order d20 product) because I have rules to go classless.

I'll keep you posted. I'm still new to the Pathfinder system. I have only played it once with a pregened character. And while I won't be using the Pathfinder world, the system (dubbed 3.75 by some) is slightly different from 3.0 and 3.5 (and also different from my homebrew).

I have run a freeform D&D style homebrew game using Classless BESM d20, and it worked (more or less :) ).
I don't know if I want to run a classless again, so that is why I'm thinking about the Pathfinder system (which I enjoyed playing).
If I have time, I might make some general base classes and still go with the Classless BESM d20.

Good luck with the campaign!

You ever decide what system you were going to run?

01-12-2011, 06:02 AM
I was gonna wait until I had enough players to let them help me decide.
So far I don't have enough interest.
But I'm still hopeful :)

If you're still recruiting, I would most certainly be up for a Pathfinder game, though I have absolutely no experience with Gametable and have only personally played PF once in a very short pbp game. Would that be a problem?

01-18-2011, 07:49 AM
Yes, I am still looking for players.
I'm not able to start until, maybe late February at the earliest.
I'm still in the "generate interest" phase :)

Gametable is easy to install, setup and use.
Also, I have only played one short game of Pathfinder, with a pre-genned character :)

Hey, I am interested in joining a Pathfinder game, if you are interested in running one. Only really available Wednesday and Thursday nights. But otherwise, it looks like 3 people interested in pathfinder, I say lets do this

OK, we can get some of the preliminary stuff sorted out.

E-mail me questions, comments, schedule availability, Skype info.

Maybe we can discuss more live on Skype today if available.

I don't know when I will put my campaign, but I will be placing it at least a few hundred years after the 5th Blight (the one that happens in the video game Dragon Age).

Just message me, or e-mail me if you have any questions or comments.

I have some spots still open, so contact me on Skype (plquattro) or by e-mail (check my previous post).

I have a campaign page started. It has info/links on races, classes, orginizations, etc...

For those of you already in the game, or if you would like to watch, or join the waiting list.

If you find a problem in the current version of gametable - pass me a note because I am one of the bug hunters on the team (though I haven't done much this year)

03-01-2011, 09:16 PM
Did you get all of your players yet? If not, what days and times are you doing it on?
