Greetings Role players!
I'm making this thread in the hopes of collecting enough like minded players to create a -Role-play Group- (not a Kinship)
The idea behind the group is to create the kind of atmosphere that draws me so strongly to Middle Earth. The kind of group like that of the Fellowship. A diverse group made up of all sorts of people, each with their own strengths and weaknesses and unique backgrounds.
My hope is to make this into a long term group that can build on each others stories and create a rich tale we will all remember.
The plan is to have a Narrator (Gamemaster/DM) who oversees the group (with his own character in the group) and who will guide the players through the adventure. This is not to say the players won't have input in the direction of it but with all these kind of things there needs to be some oversight.
I'm not restricting the groups membership but please note we're looking for people who have -real- characters, not the forgotten king of Gondor or one of the lost Wizards returned from the east.
So, I'm looking for:
- 10 or so RP'ers who are willing to get together every week or fortnight (as RL allows) on an evening.
- Players must be willing to use a simple RPG system which I will make. Something that will take 5 minutes to make your characters stats.
- A Co-Narrator who can help out with the running of our adventures so they run smoother.
What you won't have to worry about:
-Mandatory attendance. Just when you're able to join in is fine. That's why my aim is 10 people. So we should get 5 or so at least per event.
-Loads of rules in the RPG system. It's really going to be bare bones just to add some sort of structure when required.
-No RP when we're not adventuring. I'm talking in terms of timing here, we might be adventuring off in the Misty Mountains but it's your favorite Hobbit night at Bywater this evening .. players are free to make their own decisions on this and play it how they like, they can simply turn a blind eye to the travel time or have it take place IC at a later date. It really is upto you.
-Lore breaking. It's not going to be to grandiose, we'll see where it takes us but you won't have to worry about us stealing the Ring from Frodo
-Character death. Not saying there won't be any, but we certainly won't be forcing people down this road if it's not their wish. (Those who want it would approch the GM privately)
Feel free to PM me or contact me in game on 'Wulfeld'
And input is welcomed and I'd like to hear what peoples opinions are.
Thanks for reading!
