Seeking players for new campaign on TSM

Postby kmj2587 » Wed Feb 04, 2015 2:57 am

I will be starting a campaign on TSM soon (in the next couple weeks or so) and I am looking for players interested in joining. I would rather not give away a lot of information yet as how the campaign starts will depend on the players/characters that respond. Overall, here's what I'm looking for:

Schedule:
My availability for this is Mon-Thurs from about 8 pm to midnight CST. I may be able to move it up to 7 pm if that hour is the make or break for someone (Probably some east coaster?). If people responding could note their preferred night and time, I'll see how the scheduling lines up to include as many people as is possible.

Characters:
Existing or new characters are fine. I'm not worried about what the average level of the party is, as the threat can always be adjusted for party level, I just don't want a huge level difference in the party. So if I get four people with level 1's, your level 12 will not be welcome. However, if a group of existing PCs in the 6-10 range signs up, lowbies are probably going to have issues. I won't stop low levels from signing up if they wish and I won't target them, but I'm not going to make everything ignore your existence either. The -6 floor should be enough to stop you from getting crushed instantly.

All alignments are welcome-ish. Any alignment COULD be fine for this campaign, but it will be on you to make a character that is capable and willing to get along with the group and follow plot hooks. I will not chase after your character if they don't care about what's going on and I won't force the other players to cooperate with you.

Please note what existing character you would like to include, or what your basic concept is if you're planning to roll a new a character.

That being said, if someone does want to make a new character and is willing to let me hand you a back story and mess with the character in ways that may not immediately make sense for plot purposes, PM me. I may have a job for you.


Some notes about me as a DM:
The first thing I should say is that it has been four years since I've looked at the DM client. There will be a bit of a learning curve, especially since so much has been changed since the last time I used it. Don't expect harrowing combat that pushes characters to the very edge of their limits; that just takes experience I don't have yet. What I will do (and prefer) is try to present players with interesting choices and ideas based around characters and organizations with different worldviews and philosophies. I'd like to players to serve as the deciding factor in faction conflicts and have to make uncomfortable choices about who their friends are and what behaviors they actually think are acceptable.

I feel like this post should be probably be longer and I'm forgetting something, so feel free to ask questions and I will answer what I think won't give too much away.


Respondents so far:
Regas: Aseel - Scout/psycho
Brokenbone: Bamshogbo - Healbomber
Mikayla: Probably Layla? - level 7 murderer
Xan: Wood elf with the unspellable name - level 4 murderhobo
Mick: Level 7 sorcerer
HEEGZ: Wizard of unspecified paramaters
Kiyoti: Level 2 clr/ftr
Gonz.0: Level 2 lady of the evening
Heero: level 1 something?
Adanu: level 4 druid
MaskedIllusion: level 2 scout

Average level: 4.5

Depends on the druid. Since I know you have a proclivity for Celtic style druids, I'd say I can probably fit such a concept? If it's a druid that just wants to sit in a tree and never leave their magical forest homeland, they can try someone else.

I am IN! As previously discussed KMJ, I am all kinds of excited about this. Currently level 7 (regardless of which PC ends up in campaign).

I'll dust off Aseel at least for the start; if you end up with a bunch of lowbies she can always switch to background.

Definitely in with my 7th level Sorcerer, if there's room for her.

Seems my first reply got deleted...

I would be in with Orrh, my TSM wizard.

8pm is a bit early for me, but if it is a set night I can probably start that soon. Kiyoti might also want in on this I think.

Awesome kmj! I can only recommend signing up, kmj is a tolerably reasonable guy (don't tell him I said that) and is sure to put the advent in adventure. Also, the moral tor-ture. Uh. Yeah.

I'll be there to mop up leftover encounters and loot in the morning as needed. (And Heero's corpses.)

Oh, and act as a facilitator / information multiplier in any capacity you could use.

If you need a sub-forum, lemme know.

Cheers,

i just happened to have moved my alt to tsm the other night. Poor Amanda was on the run from Soubar, and afraid to continue south because of an infestation problem.

KMJ, she was created for SF lowbi game on bg, 2nd level, but im pretty sure that game fell apart. So if you are willing to take her on your adventure, i'll do what i can to accomodate your schedule.

She is a past her prime 2bit whore with larcenous tendancies and a bit insane. I have a bio for her when you want it, but am willing to work with you if you want to use her for plot push or stuff like that. And of course she can work with anyone, hospitality industry requires such ability, lol.

Same boat. Could be Bam, could be Rhaggot. Depends on the plot, final mix of players etc. Also a fade out / bow out if people who've never quite got a campaign (or been in a drought) are better served.

I'm qwilling to bring Damien into this if you're interested in a level 4 healer/conjurer druid.

I wouldn't mind bringing Ithlinwen to this, but I kinda worry that she is only a level 2 atm. Depending on who actually ends up playing. Either way, she is a ranged fighter and a stealthy scout (As much as you can be either of those things at level 2)

Also, Mondays and Tuesdays are going to be best for me. I have late night previous engadements wed-fri. On Mon/Tues I should be good any time really.
