Game On

Well, the trend is towards Greyhawk. And in that vein, I've selected an adventure for Winter Break play. It's the Pathfinder series, portions of which, I believe,have appeared in Dragon-- so avoid reading any of those if you stumble upon them. While it is not Greyhawk per se, I think the campaign setting is very Greyhawk-y, which should satisfy everyone (I hope). For now, let's accomplish two things: 1. let's find out who is playing--if you want in, say so, and 2. let's throw around some preliminary possible dates (alternatively, what dates are absolutely out?)-- I'll figure out my schedule and contribute my thoughts on that (I would say that New Year's Eve is out since that would definitely take Cap'n Redbeard out of the mix).

Okay, maybe three things-- the third being rules, especially vis-a-vis character creation. At the moment I'm leaning towards allowing only the PHB and PHB II races and classes, but I'm open to discussion on this point. And let me know what you guys think about methods of character creation. Also, discuss what races and or classes you'd like to play, so we can plan to get a good party composition. I'll read the adventure and see if there is any certain party composition we need and get back to you.

(Of course, it goes without saying that the most important thing we need to figure out is when-- and where).

Saturday, Dec 29 would work for me. Yuki's shooting a wedding.

Aerin said...

Aside from the 4-6th I'm free to roll the dice and I figure I can abide by whatever character rules you set without too much arguement

Degolar said...

I agree that 12/29 should work best since it's a Saturday.

1st level characters? One-and-done, or should we put some thought into developing the characters since there might be a future for them?

29th is out for me. I won't be able to get to KC until at least the 31st. Yes, 1st level, Greyhawk... and you might put some thought into it, you never know. Though, I don't know when we'll have time. It's going to be tough enough finding time when I have a month off.

Degolar said...

So by "winter break" you don't mean the holidays but January?

Gobula said...

Yep, I can't do anything until after the 31st either.

Lummox said...

Yes?

Tiger said...

It's not going to be The Hook Mountain Massacre, is it?

Aerin said...

anyone up for my game on the 22nd or is that close enough to Christmas that everyone is tied up with stuff? I didn't ask before because generally people are but I figure what the hell?

Tiger said...

22nd bad.

Gobula said...

22nd bad! Tiger SMASH!

(Scott and) I work the 1st and 4th weekends in January, so if we're going to get an every-three-week rotation going for Jason's game I'd want it to be the second or third weekend for that. Since Hadrian's game is a one-shot, I'll do that any of them and tough it out. So I'm committing to any two Saturday nights in January, you choose (with the above considerations in mind). I might be able to host one of them with enough advanced warning.

Hadrian said...

Hmmm... is this even a good idea at all?

Degolar said...

I'd like to make it work.

Aerin said...

I'd like to give it a go if we can, my game hasn't started yet so its launch can be put off if need be

scott said...

i'd like to play.
