With the recent loss of some mainstay referees from this forum I wanted to pay back for the great entertainment pbp here has hiven me. However, I don't have lots of free time, not enough to sustain a pbp campaign long-term. I also thought a set up that periodically injected fresh blood and enthusiasm might be a good idea.
I suggest the following:
"A long eventful journey"
A group of travellers encounters a variety of dangers and diversions along the road.
The idea is to use those short adventures gathering dust on your selves. You know the ones, published as 'sidetreks' in magazines or written by you following the 5 room dungeon format. I'll start but will run one adventure then pass the riens to another person, then I'll return and so on with myself running odd numbered adventures. All adventures should be short (5 encounters is ideal), don't hog the space.
At the end of each adventure we will allow current players the opportunity to bow out and new players to join. The maximum number of PCs at any time to be six. Existing players have 'dibs'. After that recruitment is in the hands of the referee running the next adventure. Players are not required to take a turn as a referee but experienced referees with sufficient time are encouraged to run a game.
I would expect 2 posts from each player or referee each week. If you hit a busy period of real life no probs bow out and rejoin at the next adventure.
The setting is to be a occidental generic fantasy world at the Feudal Era which should match the majority of published short adventures.
The PCs could be of any official species or class within the Feudal Era. This will be one of those poorly defined hyper-diverse olde school fantasy worlds.
Who is in?
