Lost City of Gaxmoor
Game System: Castles & Crusades (i.e., rules lite D&D...if you have played ANY version of D&D, you will quickly grasp the basics of this game)
Note: Players do not need any rulebooks to play this game.

Casting Details: Searching for a cast of four to six 1st-level characters. Everything from fresh-faced beginners to grizzled veterans are welcome in this game.

Theme: Exploration into a mysterious ancient city that recently appeared in the nearby countryside, drawing to it all manner of monstrous denizens seeking to pillage and plunder the strange locale.

Flavor: Old School, action-packed fantasy adventure

Campaign Objective(s): This game will be a bit different for me in that I don't have a definite end point in mind. I usually have an ending in mind anytime I start a game. This one will go where it goes.

What does that mean?

This will be a focused sandbox-style game featuring what will likely be multiple groups of adventurers trying to gain access to the city, where they will be caught between rival factions with different goals.

I suspect there will also be quite a few PC casualties along the way, as this adventure is crafted in the 'Old School' tradition and therefore is not as well balanced as we have come to expect in D&D style games in later editions.

Make no mistake, I will be cheering the PCs on and want them to succeed, but I am also a realist and will pull no punches along the way. Victories will be hard-fought!

Posting Requirements: I will be aiming for a posting rate of one post every 1-2 days, with the realization that real-life takes precedence, and there will be periods where that rate slows down. My main concern is that players communicate planned absences so I know what's going on and can plan accordingly. I will make it a point to let players know when real-life circumstances will have me sidelined and expect the same level of courtesy from the players. Communication is key to the success of a PbP.

General Setting Information: Westmark, a fortified village, small point of light and the last safehaven for miscreants, mercenaries, soldiers of fortune, and would-be adventurers in search of gold and glory within The Lost City of Gaxmoor.
