IC: Fast-paced over the Holidays game.
Hello.
The idea is simple, I would run a game, with all players desiring to participate daily or even multiple times a day during a whole month. The game is to be run between December 1st and January 5th, with only December 12th, 24th, 25th, 31st and January 1st as off days.

Basically the goal would be to be able to play a full adventure over the month and maybe keep going at a slower pace once that time is over. Now for system, I will run what suit better to the biggest amount of players, I was thinking either PF, or 5e at about 5th-6th level.

I  have at hand some adventures like the Isle of Dread, Phandelver, The Black Fang, or maybe we could try to run one of the adventures I've made myself but that no group has managed to finish. So is anybody interested?

Sounds like an interesting proposition.  Do you have any time-saving measures in mind?

1st one, have a complete character sheet at hand when making the RTJ, setup can take days otherwise.

2nd, Everybody has a default action for combat, there's 24 hours to post in combat, and total transparency so everybody is certain whether they failed or had success.

3rd, Monsters will have 25% less HP and do 20% more damage, and if something looks like already settled we skip over cleanup.

4th, we play theatre of the mind, with approximate coordinates for positioning.

Im looking to get into some 5e games. I did this not because it was my plan. But from now till Christmas I had a game put up a years worth of posts. If players know it is going to be this way going in you can get a damn good amount of rpol going. Its a blast but it may kill you afterward.. :)

I would be interested in a 5e game.  Generally 6th level is a better plan than 5th as there are a number of classes that suffer drastically at 5th level compared to 6th where they balance out again.

If we want a fast and brutal setting Dark Sun or Ravenloft are always helpful, although those may limit some newer players in terms of familiarity if they didn't play the 4e versions of those games.

Ok, so summarizing. 5th edition, 6th level, 2 permanent uncommon items, 1 rare permanent item.

NOw what do you want to play?

  • The isle of dread
  • The search for a fallen dragon's hoard, which is a race to be the first ones to get there against kobolds, goblins, other adventurer parties and a secret society.
  • You all are castaways and found yourselves stranded in a dangerous island full of danger  monsters and treasures.

This sounds very fun, and I'd definitely put in an RTJ. All three scenarios sound good, but the third one probably interests me the most. Will there be the possibility of multiple combat postings in a day?

How about a priority preference then.  Total up the points, 3 points for 1st, 2 for 2nd and 1 for 3rd.  If you only want one or two of them the unmentioned ones just don't get points from you.  Along with a running total of points in each post for ease of use.

(3) 1st Dragons hoard
(2) 2nd Castaways
(1) 3rd Isle of Dread

Put a link up when you are ready or PM me please this sounds like a blast. It was last year. PM also if you want help running the game as well as what you do find is players with GMTs all over the world. Combat does a lot of time come down to everyone at least 8 hours together....
