Who is your DM?
Hiya peoples. I'm Fluffles. The last two games I tried to run failed. But I'm a stubborn little prick and will keep trying till I get good at DMing.
The Game Setting
There are two sides to this campaign, one is a party of 4 trying to kill the BBEG
who has harassing a city, the other is the BBEG who has to kill the Adventuring party that is trying to break into his lair and kill him.
The player who gets to be the BBEG will be able to create everything about himself. Be he a Lich, Wizard, Evil Cleric, Human, Troll, Ogre, anything. He will decide what level the adventuring party starts out as, and I will then help him design the lair, hire minions, and create traps to be level appropriate for the party. My guess is that a whole lot more people will apply to be the BBEG than for the party, so I might make this into a long running thin where once one BBEG gets killed, I can get another one for the party to hunt down. Or if the party dies, another party to try and kill the BBEG :D
I have already found somebody to play the roll of the BBEG.
I will start applications for this at the same time I start applications for the BBEG. Your job is to hunt down and kill the BBEG while keeping you entire party alive. There will be no respawns, and no replacements once you make it inside the BBEG's lair. You will have a party of four, and your level depends on the BBEG. Your level could be anywhere from 1 to Epic. So sheets will not be required until after the game starts.
Application thread for the adventurers Character Creation
No Psionics please. I'm unfamiliar with the rules, and would rather not have to try to figure them out at this time. Maybe in one of the next round. Onto sources allowed: Core, Completes, Spell Compendium, Races, Draconomicon, MM 1-5, Tome of Battle, Tome of Magic, PHB II, DMG II, Magic Item Compendium, Spell Compendium, Savage Species,
No action points, Max 1 trait, 1 flaw. Unearthed Arcana,
Arms and Equipment Guide, Book of Exalted Deeds.
With MAYBE one exception. But it will be a secret evil person, who would be hiding his evilness. If you ask and get refused, that does not mean I picked one already, or at all. It just means I don't think you cover is good enough. But there are no guarantees that I will even pick one in the first place. No Evil alignments.
Ability scores will be 4d6r1r2v1 Don't want any wussies in the party.
Dice roll thread.
Depending on what level you want your party to be, you will get a set # of squares to build your lair. However many squares you get will determine the # of traps/obstacles your dungeon can hold, but you still will have to buy the traps. The only limit to the number and power of the traps you get is the cost. You could spend all of your gold on a single trap that could wipe out the party, but if they make it past it, well, nothing else between you and them. My goal is to make this as balanced as possible, I don't want you to be a push-over boss, and I don't want the party to die during the first encounter. I am currently working on a system to determine how much gold to give to the BBEG, but it isn't finished yet. So just think about what you want your lair to be like, and then build it once I finish the chart, or help you with it personaly.
