Gauging interest . . Aufstrag, Greyhawk or Scandia game.

Post by Rhuvein »

Thinking about running a game ~ any night, time = 6/7 pm central to 9/10 pm.

Maptools for the table top/mapping and Discord for voice (other programs can be used, if there is a favorite).

New players to C&C are welcome.

Players who hate C&C are the most welcome, I'll twist yer nuts and show the true way of how a D&D game should be run!

New players to online gaming are welcome.

Veteran gamers, welcome.


I have three games in mind:

Dungeons of Aufstrag (yes, this can be high level - but I won't run it that way. Steve says in the module that you can run parties of any level. Probably because the dungeon [and it's way more than a dungeon - more like cities and other areas within a dungeon] is so flexible and changing. And there are good people in it as well as bad, so the PCs will encounter allies.

Castle Greyhawk dungeons as presented and run by me (with inside knowledge due to having the great fortune in playing in Gary's 1972 CG game some years ago).
This dungeon is also way more than just a typical dungeon - many levels of living and changing environments including a bottled city (that would be Rob Kuntz's Bottle City that he wrote and ran for Gary et. al. back in the day) Some Castle Zagyg material will also be used.

Chronicles of Scandia - my world. [Penny, Aergraith, Treebore, ssx17sx, Gringnr have been here and for a short time, Scitzz]. Silver dragons keep the peace, but there is always evil lurking. Fountains Abbey and its great library are the anchor and oasis in a cold, frosty world. Lots of dungeon crawls, mixed with fabulous overland adventures. Magical and mythical creatures are everywhere and the players just hope (or pray) that they will help them when they need it.

All games will have balanced opportunity for role playing or roll playing. I'm very flexible and my house rules for char creation are robust and favor the players.

Lemeno, if anyone is interested or if you have any thoughts about this post.

Thanks!

Just a suggestion Rhu to get more visibility, advertise this in the C&C FB group, I bet you'd get some interested players there.

Thanks. I haven't seen that group yet, but I may give it a go.

Is this 90% dungeon crawl?

Hi T1Hound.

Good question!

Short answer:

No, not necessarily. The players will make the call. I'll solicit opinions and preferences. I generally like to mix it up.

Long answer ~ forthcoming to present more info on the nature of this game.

Oh yeah, I'm also thinking of running Metamorphosis Alpha (using C&C rule, natch) or perhaps Warriors of Mars. I have short and long adventures set up for these settings that can be one-offs or 1/2 weeks delving games. I created these for my CZ/CG game some years ago.

Custom characters, and/or chars from 5E would be welcome.
