    Default Homebrewed 3.5 Open world game (Closed Sorry.)

    I just spent an hour tying up the first draft only for this site to nuke it due to logging me out when I tried to post it. So sad. (Retyping it feel free to ask any questions might have missed it due to the retype.)

    Your Attending your High school Winter formal. Be it teachers or students maybe even a Chaperone. When suddenly a flash of light. You open your eyes to see [Plot Armored]! You gasp in shock as your fellow classmates are attacked. Blood start to pour over the ground. As the Rattles of [Plot-] and groans of [Armored] as the close in around you. As you turn you realize your not at your school anymore your at [Almighty Plot Armor]!

    [The DM ~Siegfried~]... [Plot Armor] what are you doing?

    [Plot Armor] These Humanoids arenít able to know about this campaign.

    [DM] How will they join then?..

    [Plot Armor] You have said enough.

    [DM]...but I have to warn the about all the death and the [Plot Armor]. The objective of the game. Also what about the [Plot Armor].

    ...[Plot Armor] why are you even Plot armoring your name?...

    [Plot Armor] ... Itís Classified. The Players are not allowed to receive advance warning.

    [DM] Ridiculous! Iím the Dm. Iím all powerful you can stop me from tel-

    [Plot Armor] [Divine Inprisonment Containment Killing_Primodials Under Nine Clouds Heaven]

    *[DM ~Siegfried~] collapses unconscious.*

    [Plot Armor] None is stronger then the [Plot Armor]!

    1. What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?

    Homebrewed game with some dnd 3.5 mechanics to make it less choppy. But very minor.

    2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?

    This question is basically a hint of the game *wink *wink.

    Mainly your going to start off though at your High school winter dance then we roll foward. Sometimes the game might hit Rated R or Mat-13 might be gorey as well as a heads up.

    3. How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?

    Iíd like 4-6 but if enough have suitable backstories that fit with the campaign Iím open to expanding it a bit.

    4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?

    Play by Post on the GitP Forums

    5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?

    Level 0/(itís better this way early on)

    6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?

    You can have a few hundred dollars in your wallet idm. Itís not like it help you much hahahahaha!

    7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?

    Classes arenít important really just a term in this game

    8. What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?

    You can only be human at the start!

    9. By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?

    5d6b3 or 1d10+8 but you can only pick one. Also stats arenít to important if you get +10 nice you get a little boost if you get -29385 first how? Second you might be able to catch up by playing smart.

    10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?

    Iíd like you guys to be kinda a nice for a bit. Lol but not to heavy like donít go eating babies faces type of evil.

    11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?

    It actually doesnít affect my game in anyway so not important

    12. Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?

    Players will roll their own dice. I have some passive rolls and such I like keep hidden. Unless you specifically ask to roll for it. Also I like if you try to persuade with words. Depending on what you say might give bonuses to rolls

    Exm.

    Player: Iíll persuade the king.

    Dm: go for it.

    Player: [Rolls 17] ďI want a horse!Ē (-10 to persuading) I kneel awaiting for him to give me permission to speak. Then I polite ask him ďMy Liege may I have one of your Magnificent steeds to aim me on my journey to rid your lands of evil? (+50 reputation with the king and +5 on roll)


    13. Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.

    You get a built in Homebrewdex at the start of your journey that can help. But as [Plot Armor] Said earlier I canít say much.

    14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?

    Yea why your attending the winter formal details about your characters and such. If your a teacher explain why. If your a wiz kid who in is high school at 10 write a backstory and reflect it say with more int? But Iíd prefer it I feel you keep your ages around 16-18.

    15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?

    The world and [Plot Armor] is the puzzle. Role playing will be your way to get stronger so itís very heavy same with hack and slash. Keep your wits about you! The game will be dangerous if you take it lightly.

    16. Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, or will you be allowing access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?
    The homebredex?


    Spoiler: Types of players I would like
    Show

    Roleplayers.
    Players who can adapt quickly in game.
    Preferably if you can post at least once in a 1-2 day period.
    Ones that try to help the Dm instead on breaking the world lol.


    Spoiler: Dm tricks
    Show
    I sometimes hide things around, be it funny or not. Sometimes I do roundabout ways of saying things for the ones that spot them good job you might be able to see hidden things. If someone finds the few things Iíve hidden here feel free to post maybe you might get an award :o

    This seems intriquing and I enjoy the level of meta.

    To be sure that I am getting this right, we are a group of modern people attending a school ball and some monster with the power to break the fourth wall appears and slaughters a bunch of people? I tend to prefer games in which we gain some ability that we don't have in regular life, can you confirm that this is possible in the setting?

    Yep your high school students or you can be a chaperone or a teacher. Just someone who would attend said event. Would prefer the high school students more though. Also donít worry stats arenít everything lol. Just a little heads start.

    A lot is classified. Hmmm letís see what the [Plot Armor] will let me get away with.

    Survival will be tough. Seeing as it will literally be like you vs the worlds. Also try to be flexible and keep an open mind. It will help you develop better. The town your currently in for your schooling isnít now important so feel free to make up whatever details you would like. Mainly you have to write up a back story the rest of the game is a play as you go discover type.

    Sorry I canít add more most of it is hard to say without giving it away since it stills to certain themes.

    Spoiler: Igni Dei
    Show
    Igni Dei was born to Ramos and Wanda Dei, two loving parents. Ramos was a banker, Wanda was a baker, and the two were deeply in love.

    Igni grew up sheltered (some may say coddled) and in a positive, loving home. She was homeschooled after kindergarten, so when she got to high school... Well, suffice to say it was a bit of a shock.

    She excelled in her classes, but had little social life, spending most of her time with books and games. She has two solid friends-Jeremy Wheeler and Tessa Smith. Both of them are, like her, the nerdy, socially awkward types. They both enjoy the music parts of the extracurriculars, though, and so have more of a social life than Igni.


    Basic backstory stuff.

    BOOM! Here I am.

    Devaris Johnson, football player, senior, and studly. I brought the head cheerleader to the formal, that sucked, she died. I am into action movies, rap, and eat a metric ton everyday to keep my body in peak physical condition. I hit the gym a lot, my parents provide me with everything I want. I am a single child and often engage in risky behaviors, because I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie. I drive a flashy car my parents bought, after I wrecked the first one they bought me. I am often undisciplined and am allowed to get away with poor grade performance and poor behavior in school.

    Nice lol. By the way you can use a standard mythweavers 3.5 sheet for stats and just an organization. Itís just the bones Iím using for this story.

    P.s. Iím thinking of starting this by Thursday. All you need is a backstory and starting stats. The rest is unimportant for now lol.

    Wow! This looks really interesting and I would love to take part in this. I'll roll for the stats now, and I'll see if I find some time during the day to write a basic backstory. She'll definitely be a high school student however, and one with a little bit of drama too.
