    RPG, for Althanas.

    Dear all

    Some time ago, and I think this was years now, Althanas had an RPG, run by someone not who was me but which I was part of. Currently myself three days into a spectacular four day weekend of pathfinder I have renewed vigour and enthusiasm for such a game.

    The process of my suggested game shall be thus:
    1) I will be GM, but if there are others who wish to take a week's adventure, they are welcome to, I will simply have to have a discussion with them about the world in which it is set. It would be good if they have experience but not necessary.

    2) The system we will be using is either pathfinder or Dungeons and Dragons.
    Pathfinder, you can find the rules on an awesome website. It is an offshoot of D and D 3.5 in a way.
    http://www.d20pfsrd.com
    Dungeons and Dragons, we will likely use the new version, i.e. 5e.

    3) All of the RPG will be online. We will use Skype and a website called Roll20.
    https://roll20.net
    Link to the roll20 campaign site.

    4) The world will be in a place called Selenin, one of my own devising and with its own gods, but other gods are available to be used. I'll say it could be part of Althanas the world, if people want it to be. More information to come when the game is more established. It is highly likely I will be using a form of already established module, so we have a structure.

    5) The story will mostly be session by session one adventure per time, where people can jump in and out of. This means that if you can't make a week then that is fine. Your character would just be doing something else. We will also be likely running once a fortnight.

    6) I am going to limit the number to 6 people. Unfortunately the fairest way to do this is to say first come first served. If someone drops out then the first reserve will take their place.

    7) For now I will be limiting all of the classes and races you can go to core, standard and featured (for race) and basic (for class). If there really is something you are desperate to go then we can have a chat.

    8) This is not an official Althanas-planned or endorsed thing. This is me wanting to GM again.

    9) We may record the sessions. They will then be put up for others to hear. They won't be short though.

    And ...

    10) If you've never played a tabletop RPG don't worry! I will be welcoming first timers.

    11) Please comment below.

    That's it for now ...

    Those taking part:
    1) Revenant (Elf Slayer - Pacific Time)
    2) Nevin (Aasimar paladin - Central)
    3) jdd2035 (human sorcerer/fighter)
    4) Venex (cleric - Central)
    5) Sir Artemis (Human slayer - East Coast)
    6) Storm
    7) ('special guest' aka husband who will also be playing an NPC here and there) Voice/Aenon (Dwarf Fighter - GMT)

    Reserves:

    Edit: One 'extra' spot will be taken by my husband who RPGs on this site as Aenon/Grumble/Voice. I am not adding him into the 6 though as want to leave it open.

    I'm always interested in doing an RPG. I tried to get something similar started a while ago but it never really got off the ground. What kind of time frame are you looking at?

    Time scale wise we are looking at once a fortnight probably, so every two weeks. Likely a Friday night or weekend. Time unfortunately will need to fit around me as I am GMT, but I can start later at night, so EST late afternoon.

    I'm hoping to start a team with sessions, levelling pretty fast with a view to eventually do a module called Ravenloft. But that will be very far away. For the interest of spoilers don't look up Ravenloft. I did a bit before I played it and it was a mistake.

    I played like one session for raven loft before, and the DM looked at me and said he had never heard of anyone going the route the person I was working and I did. He was laughing his head off.
    But I'll happily join in - I'm experienced with 3.5 and 5e, but not pathfinder.

    The systems are essentially the same. You can do a sort of hybrid of them, I've heard some people doing that.

    And awesome of Ravenloft just don't spill the secrets to everyone else and remember your character is brand new :P

    Brand new and NOT going down that route if he has a choice lol. And I'll spill nothing, that takes the fun out of it.

    For class I prefer paladins or rangers, but I can fill in a different class if we need someone in one of those roles.

    Look so what we need to do is just throw out a squad of six rangers. There's enough variation there we could handle pretty much everything. Bahabahahahaha
