Current Games
« on: May 20, 2008, 05:49:39 AM »
This board will serve as a planning board for new Play by Post games- post to see if people are interested, to gather players, and to make initial plans.

Then I will create a board for each specific game.  They could stay together, but if I create separate boards, I can give each GM moderation powers over their game so they fully control it.

So please post here as to which games are being run, who is the GM and who the players are.  If the game ends, update it here too so we can keep all of the information together.

I need enough details to know who is running it, what the game will be called, and to know that there are committed players.  So get that info in the (new) planning board, let me know by posting in the stickied thread (have 1 post with all of the info that you can just edit) and send me a message so I see it and I'll create the board and give you control of it.

Please keep other chatter out of this thread so it can be easily scanned for games.  Feel free to ask questions in other threads or start a new thread if needed.

Why is it taking so long to start the Game B forum?
My work
The tier system in a nutshell:
[spoiler]Tier 6: A cartographer.
Tier 5: An expert cartographer or a decent marksman.
Tier 4: An expert marksman.
Tier 3: An expert marksman, cartographer and chef who can tie strong knots and is trained in hostage negotiation or a marksman so good he can shoot down every bullet fired by a minigun while armed with a rusted single-shot pistol that veers to the left.
Tier 2: Someone with teleportation, mind control, time manipulation, intangibility, the ability to turn into an exact duplicate of anything, or the ability to see into the future with perfect accuracy.

I need information to start it!  Please list the info requested in this thread and I'll make it post haste! 

Also, PLEASE keep the chatter out of this so it is just a list of the games being played. 

Huge thanks to the suggestions for this forum, the threads, everything.  I know so little about play by post and am totally relying on you guys to drive it.

Stars, in our multitude is ready to begin.

I, the_taken, is the dungeon master of this space age adventure.

ShaggyShags is playing the knowledgeable beguiler people like to call "Patch"
AlterForm is playing the team's tech master, Nikolao
Mohji is playing the gunslinging Mohji Chipoua
SolEiji is playing Buddy, man.

We may add JanusJones and his character, Yonderboy, to the game when RL settles down.

I am the GM for the non-standard Forgotten Realms campaign.

"Forgotten Realms - The Darkening"

List of current players:

Straw_Man hasn't returned

Smudgyhandsman.

Snizor

Akula is just gone

Pan-Fried Hamster

Surreal

Omen of Peace

Risada

This campaign is on principle always open. If you are interested, shoot me a PM. It may take a bit of wheedling to integrate a new character, but it's generally not a problem.

DMing for Skies of Arcadia. Only two of my players have a definite character, and some of the others have thoughts about porting their older characters over.

Open until we decide on which players go where, once we have between 12-24 players.

Edit: With several of the continents filled, I will be starting up the first of them.

I'd like to get a childboard for my little challenge. Name would be The Iron Siege. Players are not set (at least carnivore is giving it a go, but others might and most probably will try it after him) and I'd like everyone to be able to see the board, post there and whatever have you.

New Game/Setting:  Shadow's Edge
Primary DM:  Balthanon

Player Interest: 

Players:
 - NineInchNail
 - Smudgyhandsman?
 - Straw_Man
 - Dictum Mortuum
 - PhoenixInferno?
 - EjoThims
 - AlisAtAn
 - Stratovarius
 - Detective Jabsco
 - JanusJones
 - TheWordSlinger
 - bayar
 - Callix

DMs:
 - Pan-Fried Hamster
 - Prime32?
 - bayar

Shadow's Edge was the first CO game and the original adventure is still going strong over on the WotC boards after 4 years.  (It actually was started on 6/19/04, so almost exactly 4 years now.)  This is actually a request to start up a board to go back to the roots of Shadow's Edge, the village that bears that name.  The village was originally designed as a shared setting where players could create characters, background, and shared history before going off to adventure.  The unique manner that play by post is handled on these boards actually will serve that purpose well.
