Recruiting Group D for the Crossroads Inn! (first open recruiting, FCFS)

The Crossroads Inn - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e
Estimated Members Requested: 5


Welcome!


But it is the province of religion, of philosophy, of pure poetry only, to go beyond life, beyond time, into eternity.
-de Vigny




Welcome adventurer! Though this place is known by many names: The Dreaming Dragon, The Inn-Between Worlds, The Inn of Infinite Doors... there are other names too but most of us just call it the Crossroads Inn. Hopefully, like many of us, you'll come to think of this place as 'home'.
You can call me 'The Hostess', because that's what I do here and I don't remember having any other name.
I know this is all very confusing. No one comes here on purpose. But, now you're here, so make the best of things! Here, let me show you around...



Hello, WoLT here! Bringer of the MW GUIDES and Executive Producer on the MW Module currently in production as well as many other projects...

...and now also proud head of the executive team of THE CROSSROADS INN!

I have great news for you! I've been working with over a dozen other Dungeon Masters on our not-so-secret collabo gaming project for D&D 3.5 and...

We are now taking the first group of open recruiting for players! (group D)

We have received a lot of interest in this project and already have many players already active and participating in adventures and arena battles, not to mention creating RP atmosphere in the pub!

Who are we looking for?

-A player that is creative and fun to play with
-A player that has good posting habits
-A player that will likely enjoy this game

and that's it! Have some crazy concept for your character? Worry now, you are given creative liberties (though not mechanical liberties) unlike that which you will find in pretty much any other game you're likely to come across. We have characters from token campaign settings, future worlds, homebrews, mysterious backgrounds... it's all welcome! (though we do encourage you to be creative and have fun with the wide array of options available).

Here at the Crossroads Inn you can also expect to have other great players to play with and a whole staff of experienced DMs preparing adventures just for you!

Right now we are only accepting five players on a first come, first serve basis. While you may decide to adventure with some of the applicants here you are NOT going to create a team, just a character that you want to play.


Reasons to want to play:

Don't you hate when you play a great game with a character you love and the adventure is over and you don't get to play your character anymore?

Ever have trouble getting your favorite character concept to fit into a game world and have to modify the background so much it doesn't even feel like the same character anymore?

Are you new to MW and having trouble finding a game?

Ever wish you could play with lots of different people to learn from them and experience what it's like to not be with the same players all the time?

Ever want to join a game where you had the potential to one day apprentice and move up to be a DM?

Ever want to try out some new and interesting setting ideas but didn't want to commit to a whole campaign that could take years to play out?

The Crossroads Inn may just be exactly what you're looking for!

So... What is the Crossroads Inn?

The Crossroads Inn is a new kind of game on Myth-Weavers. It has a persistent static setting of an Inn where players meet and obtain quests and travel through dimensional doors that take them to literally any kind of world or adventure that your DM can come up with in any kind of setting they would like to run! The possibilities are literally limitless! Characters can thus literally jump into game worlds with random parties and go to new kinds of worlds all the time! Once in a game world you will play out adventures of any kind imaginable with very minimal restrictions. An entire team of DMs runs various adventures of any kind they wish and players are free to play in any of the games they qualify for (based on level and sometimes other restrictions depending on the adventure design).

So...

Where to begin?
  • Take the Tour!: Familiarize yourself by taking the tour that all new players experience. This will help you understand what it is your character is walking into.

    Now that you know about what's up... Lets find out if the Crossroads Inn is right for you, shall we?
  • Character Creation Rules: character creation rules are kept to a minimum to allow maximum access for new players. Out of necessity, all source material is restricted to the official SRD.
  • House Rules: For the sake of simplicity, house rules are kept to an absolute minimum and provide the easiest solutions to the complex problems inherent to a game of this type.
  • Prerequisites:
    Q) Can I be a DM?
    A) YES PLEASE!!!

    We encourage players of this game to eventually become DMs, especially if they are experienced as 3.5 DMs to begin with.

    Reviewing this page is good for every player though as it will help you understand what it is the DMs are responsible for. It is good to know your rights as a player as well as understand the monumental tasks of what it is the DMs are doing behind the scenes.

    If you are interested in becoming a DM please PM me directly at this time or contact me later through Room 0

Does this sound exciting to you? Are you ready to play that character you've always wanted to play but never got the chance to? Apply now! You don't have anything to lose! The only qualification is that the character meets the specified criteria for rules, the concept of the character itself is entirely up to you!

Join Now!

Applications will be accepted based on a first come first serve basis. This is not FCFS for posting interest, but actual submission of a character in proper game format in this thread. That means the first 5 to post a finished character here that is ready to be audited will be accepted. I still expect you to post interest when engaging the thread.

Feel free to ask questions if you are confused, but please be aware that our wiki pages are rather extensive and complete and thus you can answer most any question you might invent simply by looking in the appropriate area.

Just as a heads up, this is a BIG project, it may take a while for you to get familiar with it. That's OK. If you don't have the time right now to be one of the first 5 done, we will still be recruiting more groups of players as we are able to take them, take the time to review the material and post interest anyway, we'll keep you on a list of interested persons

Hi there. Interested. I have no idea what I am interested in playing yet though. I have been lurking though out your Threads over there and been wanting to get in. Now the door is open. Will get an app in soon-ish.

Looking forward to it!

We've been having a lot of success with the game so far with the beta testers

At one point if we get enough DMs I'd like to open recruiting full time but right now we need more before we can accommodate absolutely everyone that would want to play

Wasn't implying you should

It's certainly not mandatory for anyone, I was just airing my thoughts

I find it helps to think about some character idea I've wanted to try and then classify it as an archetype (wizard, warrior, priest, rouge, etc.) and then race (picked) and then do an image search for that and find a pic that shows me a character that looks like what I'm thinking of, or at least just looks cool

From there it's just a matter of asking the the big five questions repeatedly and then statting it out

That's certainly not the only way to do it, but I find it's easiest for me.

Interested. I'm on my phone at the moment, so I can't make an application just yet.

I'm also interested in being a DM. I do not have the slightest amount of experience with being a DM, though.

Excellent, I look forward to it
