The Epic of Coursh: The Heroes
I've got a fun game that I need help with.
As a little back story- this game started back in 2009- where character submissions were very strict. From the original game ad this is a general idea what all players had to submit:
500-1000 word back story of the character
3000-5000 word writing sample
The allies appear in adventuring, and joining the heroes (now a group of 6) I usually do 2 allies or so each time they appear- rotating which allies are in, and what is appropriate. Usually the main PC creates the ally and controls it as well, but that can change too.
Get_in_my_Belly- the original DM had to bow out due to real life constraints. I took over as DMPC full time for a bit before some real life stuff- then Hammerfist and I switched off GMing as DMPCs for a bit before I took over full time (again).
We've had a few player replacements, with healthy amounts of role play and surprises. I even started a villains thread every once in a while as so we can learn more about our villains as people- and help the DM (Me) understand the villain motivation more.
I have some notes on some direction on where I planned the campaign to go, where the story can tie-in, and a world map.
We've also been using ditzie and a combat sheet, courtesy of Silverkiss, to keep track of combat stats.
The challenges so far:
1) I'm doing DMPC, which while all those who play the game are comfortable with (I haven't heard any complaints) I'd like to be just a PC.
That being said, if there are no takers for a full on rescue-here are some options
1)Take over some of my NPCs- specifically my own character's allies- and possibly more, if other players prefer.
2) Take on the combat parts- create encounters, challenges, and unique monsters for us to fight.
If you're willing to do both- that'd be great too.
If you have any interest at all in doing a full on takeover, or assisting in the partial pieces in any way, shape, or form, I'd love to hear from you.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments!
