    Ravenloft PBP: Looking for players

    Hey there. After several weeks of preparation I am now ready to try and put a play by post together for the Ravenloft setting, something that a few of us in the Gardens of Stone group have been trying to do for some time now.

    For anyone who is unsure what Ravenloft is, it's a demi-plane and a campaign setting based on Gothic horror and utilizing Pathfinder (a.k.a. D&D 3.75). This particular PBP campaign will focus largely on mystery solving and roleplaying, with an occasional combat every so often. You need not know a thing about Ravenloft (I'll let you know anything important) and we'll be starting off with 1st level characters.

    I don't need a lot of players to start off. In fact I intend to start with just one character and gradually introduce others as they come along. As for the frequency of posting I'm thinking about once every three days but this can be altered depending on what works best for the players.

    One thing that I do ask right from the start though is that anyone who is interested, I would prefer that you not discuss any specifics on this thread about the kind of character that you would like to run other than the character's race and whether or not it is a Warrior, Divine Spellcaster, Arcane Spellcaster or a Rogue. This is important.

    For more information, please either send me a PM, post your questions right here, or go to the Gardens of Stone social group (and join it if you need to) - there you will find much more about the PBP under the New Domain Lord thread and other threads.

    Hm, without giving too much away. I would have to say that out of everything here I would probably be taking the Warrior or Rogue. I have experience running multiple characters, actually up to four.

    And I would really prefer to play by 3.5 rules. I have pretty much every 3.5 supplement there is in digital format and can supply them if need be and I wouldn't mind starting the game alone.

    We are going with Pathfinder and when making up characters use the following rules:

    For ability scores use these numbers as your dice rolls, making sure to place 3 numbers in each and every ability score:

    6,6,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,4,4,4,4,4,3,3,3,3
    (2 6s, 7 5s, 5 4s and 4 3s)

    The final ability scores can range from as high as 17 to as low as 9, which means that they will be above average scores, but I've always felt adventurers in Ravenloft should be above average.

    For equipment use the average starting gold for your class then add 25 gold. I would prefer you buy equipment individually rather than use a starting package. Write all of your equipment out and figure up the weight. I do use encumbrance rules and in my campaigns if an item is not written down then you don't have it and it can't be used.

    When you have a charcter sheet filled out, send me a PM. I'll then give you an e-mail address so you can send me a copy of the character sheet. And remember, don't give out any clues about your character on this thread other than what I've noted above.

    So basically we just add those up and go from there? I see. Do you care about gender? And you said Humans would be standard? I might be a mixed race though.

    Gender makes no difference . Half-elves are fine. But there are no orcs in Ravenloft, so as far as mixed race half-elf is it.

    No Orcs? That's odd, but I didn't really want to play a Orc. I will bang out a little sheet for her and I will run it by you.

    Got the character. Looks good at first glance. I'll have more time to take a better look at it later in the week. We'll have to make a couple of changes on the languages to make sure you have the ones you need (which are specific to Ravenloft). I'm also going to post some info on the starting place and hopefully a map, so you can have more to go on if you want to do anything in particular for the background. Unfortunately I may not be able to do this until this weekend, as my week is pretty filled up. But I'll get to it as soon as I can.

    Yeah I wasn't sure of the languages and all of that kind of stuff. Really I spent so much time getting the weight on my supplies down that I didn't get to the other parts.

    Not a problem. Realistically, I'm sure it'll be a week or two before we actually get started, though I'll do everything I can to get it going soon.

    We are currently nearing the end of our first chapter in this pbp. This means we will soon be reaching a point where I can introduce new players and new characters. We have room for a couple of players. So if you're interested send me a PM or post here.

    It's actually Pathfinder (a.k.a. D&D 3.75). As for what is different, I have a lot of information about the campaign in the threads of the group if you can locate that. With this new format I'm having difficulty locating it myself. But if you're interested, send me a PM.

    I would be willing to give it a go. Never played the Pathfinder system. But would be willing to give it a try.
