Looking for D&D 4e, preferably with themes
I've had a couple character ideas I've wanted to try, but haven't been able to find a host.   If anyone has an opening for one of these, shoot me a link.   If any other players LFG are interested in playing alongside one of these, lemme know.




  1. Ryu (Human Fighter), a samurai lost in a strange land after chasing the changeling warlock who killed his master through a mysterious portal.
  2. The self-proclaimed General Tympani Nightblossom (Pixie Warlord), who's basically Navi from Ocarina of Time.
  3. Kristoff (Dwarf Druid/Werebear), the banished inheritor of his clan who seeks to master his curse.
  4. Blind Mag (Dusk Elf OR gnome assassin), an enforcer who got caught in the act and her only chance at avoiding execution depends on her taking down her former employer.

I'm interested in GMing this. I'm not 100% that I will be able to, but I'm quite interested.

I would have some concessions I would need the players to make, like someone getting the group bonus XP/rewards for updating a map, rather than having to maintain it alone 100% of the time. If that and other concessions are made, It's more than a maybe, and more like a probably that I'll run this.

I LOVE themes, few people do. Not because they dislike the powers, but because they think, unlike everything else, that the powers must fall in line stringently with the proclaimed name/description, rather than flavored--like literally every other aspect of 4e. So I'm strongly interested in GMing, solely because someone finally said "screw it!" to the theme hate.

I'll check back in, in a couple weeks, though feel free to Rmail me if we're getting close to (American) Thanksgiving and you haven't heard back. I often put out a lot of threads, and sometimes forget to pull back on some of them.

Ooh, Fourth Edition - count me interested :). I have several characters myself that have been created for various games (on here and/or at tabletop) that didn't last more than a couple of posts/sessions, and I'd love to live through their stories :). If it seems like anything is gonna come of this, feel free to PM me or something. Haven't had a chance to actually play in Fourth Edition for ages :(.

In reply to V_V (msg # 2):

Awesome!   I'd be more than happy to manage maps/XP logs, if it meant having a chance to play.

And I'm with you on the "creative use of powers" line.   The mechanical benefits of 4e certainly helps with party balance so everyone feels like they are contributing,  but taking creative licenses is the soul of a roleplaying experience.   A few examples...
  • I've played in an Eberron campaign where one player got tired of being a human fighter, but didn't want to lose the story he had built up.   GM let him switch races to a Warforged, which led to a huge story arc about warforged "skinwalkers" and the fighter discovering his true nature after a brutal injury and questioning the gaps in his memory.  He also gained a new nemesis, a skinwalker assassin who was hunting him down to hide the existence of their kind.
  • Another campaign, we had a witch seer who kept "wasting" her theme power on random NPCs to earn money in the city, but when one her clients turned out to be the BBEG the party was able to take advantage of the premonitions to bait out his most powerful moves.


Ameena, glad to see another player!   What kind of character do you feel like playing,  or what would you like me to play?

Loooks healthy! Again, gimme a little bit to mull it over. I did want to check up on this thread, and certainly the quick advance is promising. :)

A newly repurposed game has been created. It is still in the very initial stages of development, but we might as well start the discussion there, even though I'm just starting to work on the body of the campaign.

You can join here: link to another game The three of you that posted already, are considered invited. If you get stuck on a question, or think it unnecessary, you are welcome to skip it. Just put "--" next to it, so I know you intentionally skipped it.

Names are important, but that is one of the things easiest to change. If you give me a name to add you as, I'll use that. Otherwise you'll be given a guest ID just to gain entry.
