Ravenloft Setting Campaign?

Post by Treebore »

My kids have been hitting me up to run Ravenloft, the setting, as our home game again.

Anyone else interested?

If so I would be running it based on the 3E assumptions and ideas put out by Arthaus. Why? Because you can survive from level 1 with these assumptions.

Which is the reason I never ran it in 1E and 2E.

Plus there are a lot of cool background feats I would like to implement in my C&C version of it.

If others are interested we would use SKYPE and Open RPG, and maybe, eventually FG2, and would be on our normal home game day, which is Saturdays. Time would be somewhat negotiable, but we like to do it from 7 PM AZ Time, which is currently 9 PM EST and 6 PM PST, to whenever we are too tired to keep gaming.

Realize this is the SETTING, not the module, even though the module does exist in the setting.

Also realize that there are a few home brew changes to it as well. I did run a year long campaign for this in 3E. So homebrewing changes are inevitable with me.

PM or post here if to make a commitment to play it, reliably.

Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

Are you going to run it from the new Ravenloft book?

If you mean the 3E version of I6 I will definitely use it if your ever unfortunate enough to go there. Strahd is MUCH more powerful in the setting.

Robert. If it is an 'off' day from my DL and Underomountain games on Sat and Sun, I'll play. You know when DL is, and my Sat game is the other weekend only on Sat. Unless the start time is earlier on Sat, it would have to be an every other week deal for me. Let us know what times you are looking at.

I would love to play in a ravenloft game. Ive always loved the setting and ran a fairly long running campaign in it, but apart from your halloween I6 game I never had a chance to play in Ravenloft.

But, it depends on the day/time slot for me. On sundays in the evening (EST, but then again, you knew that already ) would be best for me.

Just reread your post Robert. If you play every Sat at those times in the evening, I'll have to pass as I am running my Undermountain game ever 2nd Sat eve. If its every other Sat (same weekend as our DL), then I am in.

Rob.

Robert. Is the offer still open to join your Ravenloft game? If it is on Saturdays, I am free now anytime as my Undermountain game has been cancelled due to Marty not being able to play it. Let me know when you can, thanks.

I haven't even started the game yet, so I am still able to be flexible as to the day that is best for the most people. I can even run it biweekly if people want. Like on alternative Sundays to Rigons game is a possibility.

Cool Robert, whatever is best for you and all. Either Sat(weekly or biweekly) or Sun (biweekly) is fine with me.

OK, for those of you interested, I assume you have some Ravenloft setting material? If so start telling me things you would like to see me use. Kits, powers, feats from 3E, etc...

If any of you have the 3E version on PDF I would appreciate it if you could copy/paste the 3E feats and rules for fear, insanity, etc... Unfortunately I only have them in print.

If any of you have a PDF version of what you want to see/use please copy and paste it into here as well.

I have no Ravenloft in pdf Robert, but I do have several things in Hardcopy.

When are you looking at starting?

Are you referring to the 3.0 Ravenloft campaign book or the 3.5 updated books (I believe there are 2 of them)?

L.S.

I will do it on alternating Sundays to Rigons game, so I believe he will be doing his the next two sundays in a row, after Easter Sunday tomorrow. So 4 Sundays from now, including tomorrow. Tentatively.

Let me know what resources each of you guys have, that way I can just refer you to page numbers if you happen to have what I want to use or make available.

I only have the 3.5 DMG, everything else I have is 3.0, but either version should work since the 3.0/3.5 thing didn't really change anything important.

You interested in playing?

I have the 2nd ed boxed set (the one from after the conjuntion iirc) van richtens guide to ghosts, islands of terror, and posibly a few other books (ill have to check when I get home) as well as a bunch of 2nd ed stuff in PDF.

I dont think I have any of the 3.X stuff, but I will have to double check when Im at home

Thanks, but I need to do it on Sundays for Spakman to be able to play, plus I like that it will keep me in the habit for Rigons Dragonlance game. I just wonder how much holidays will screw things up. Plus I am hoping when Rigon has to cancel we'll be able to play unscheduled Ravenloft games.
