Locke

Pen and Paper RPG's - Sign Up Thread.

29 posts in this topic

This has been talked about for a while but as we've never had a GM/DM prepared to actually do it, it's never actually happened. So instead of waiting for someone else to volunteer (which given that no one has done so, in over a year, probably wasn't going to happen anyway). I'm going to step up and give it a go. The sessions will be once a week or fortnight depending on what's more agreeable and session length minimum of an hour, maximum of 2 with the idea to try and rap it up at the hour mark.

 

So if you would like to take part please post the following:

 

1) What evening's you are free?

 

2) What RPG's you'd want to play, (DnD, GoT, Star Wars, BSG, what ever you can find out there)?

 

3) Are there any that you DON'T want to play?

 

4) Would you like pre-built campaigns or homebrew?

 

5) Would you like it once a fortnight or once a week?

 

6) What sort of time per session would you prefer (min and max lengths please)?

 

7) Strict rules or House rules?

 

8) Starting at level 1 or a couple of levels higher?

 

 

 

 

This will be my first time running anything like this so there will be a fair few bumps along the way and once / IF people sign up it will take me a couple of weeks (3-4 I think!) to plan everything out.

I'd like to put forward my interest in participating, i'll answer the rest a bit later :)

 

If I am involved, i'll more than likely record it as come on, it's DL playing a fantasy game, trying to sort of be in character - it's going to involve drinking, bad language, rage, love and laughter and that's just from Locke!

 

1) What evening's you are free? 

I'd rather a Friday/Saturday - not Sunday (evening)

 

2) What RPG's you'd want to play, (DnD, GoT, Star Wars, BSG, what ever you can find out there)? 

As long as there can be a story, i'm easy going

 

3) Are there any that you DON'T want to play?

I was going to say no but then found out there was a mylittlepony one.... so yeah, no that!

 

4) Would you like pre-built campaigns or homebrew?

As i've little experience, pre-built is fine for me and best for Locke at first, Homebrew can come in over time.

 

5) Would you like it once a fortnight or once a week?

Weekly at first to see how it goes whilst enthusiasm is high (this is DL... drop out rates in games we play is real!)

 

6) What sort of time per session would you prefer (min and max lengths please)?

I've been brought up raiding so am happy for it to go on for a few hours (with breaks!)  - Agree with Hal, prep work outside of the timeslot, intro's and playing inside.


7) Strict rules or House rules?

House rules =)


8) Starting at level 1 or a couple of levels higher?

Level 1 - would like it to be a fresh start as it'll be one of my first proper times.

Meee! Still. :)

1.) I'm employed, so Fridays/Weekends work best. :) But I can normally do Tuesdays/Wednesdays if needed.

2.) Am up for any. I have lots of rulebooks if you're after ideas. :)

3.) My Little Pony RPG?

4.) Homebrew would be fun, but very time consuming for GM. So wouldn't mind Pre-built if GM needs time to work on things.

5,) Weekly would be best, but fortnightly doesn't fuss me too much.

6.) 2-3 hours normally works best, too long and peoples attention starts to flag & I'd suggest doing things that amount to paperwork on the forums inbetween sessions, so as to not cut into session time.

7.) House rules...

8.) A story always starts from the beginning!

1) What evening's you are free? I'm easy, it changes but can be negotiated with the boss


 


2) What RPG's you'd want to play, (DnD, GoT, Star Wars, BSG, what ever you can find out there)? ALL OF THEM


 


3) Are there any that you DON'T want to play? What's wrong with My Little Pony?


 


4) Would you like pre-built campaigns or homebrew? Homebrew, but only because it's more work for Locke... Unless he pre-builds. Then that.


 


5) Would you like it once a fortnight or once a week? Why not twice a week? Hmm?


 


6) What sort of time per session would you prefer (min and max lengths please)? You're gonna need to set aside 3 hours mesa tink.


 


7) Strict rules or House rules? Strict rules. That are broken.


 


8) Starting at level 1 or a couple of levels higher? Depends on what we're playing. Not much point starting at lv 1 if we all dragons. No levelling for 7 levels?

I love how a my little pony troll picture is so toxic that it stops the thread dead.  Come on folks, Locke is trying to set something up for the community to enjoy!

Ooh you're setting up a My Little Pony RPG? I'm game! Everypony should join! :D

 

1) What evening's you are free?

Pretty much any.

 

2) What RPG's you'd want to play, (DnD, GoT, Star Wars, BSG, what ever you can find out there)?

I've played DnD 4th Edition, Eberron and both WH40k and WHFRP though I do prefer fantasy ones. Anything DnD would probably work for me. :)

 

3) Are there any that you DON'T want to play?

I prefer more of the action-oriented RPGs rather than the more freeform/intrigue kind of RPGs.

 

4) Would you like pre-built campaigns or homebrew?

Any works.

 

5) Would you like it once a fortnight or once a week?

I think the closer together the better.

 

6) What sort of time per session would you prefer (min and max lengths please)?

2-6 hours?

 

7) Strict rules or House rules?

Any works.

 

8) Starting at level 1 or a couple of levels higher?

Either works for me.

Please keep a journal of your adventures :) A summary of each session would be great for the peanut gallery

You don't want me, i can in no way at any point take it seriously enough such that i wouldn't ruin the efforts or enjoyment of others.  *I* would likely have a great deal of fun, I'm not sure a GM who puts a great deal of work into this would ever either thank me or invite me back.
