Apocalypse Game Needs DM
Deathlands - D20 Apocalypse - Forum
Estimated Members Requested: 1
Well folks, unfortunately my plate has become rather full with... well, life. I've had to make the hard decision to let go of one of my own games, an Apocalyptic game that highlights government conspiracies, military might, survival, and the search for truth. My original intention was to loosely use the rules for d20 Aplocalypse to make this happen, and so far it's been good, but I just don't have the bandwidth or the creativity to keep up.
I'm looking for a capable DM to take over this game. I will remain on as a secondary DM, not to moderate your process, but to support the game if you fall off the face of the earth. Take a look at the game and let me know (in PM) how you would like to take this on, what your experience is, and what you can bring to the table.
The group is pretty fantastic, and while we're down a couple of players, I'm sure it should not be difficult in the slightest to fill the ranks again.
Looking forward to your interest!
STORYOn the morning of January 20, 2008 the Cold War ended. Not because of peace or conquest, but for a very horrifying reason. Numbers are sketchy, but local communities estimate that on that fateful morning, almost everyone just... died. Instantly, with no suffering. No cause of death could be found, not that there was an extensive search during the mass hysteria following. A good many of those who hadn't died outright began to change, although many were driven off before these changes could threaten any of the survivors. The rest of the world was left to take what was left and try to survive.
GAME MASTERI'm Aiden. I've been doing a fair bit of PC gaming on here, mostly with D&D 3.5e, but I've been branching out with Star Wars Saga and d20. I've DMed a bunch of games in real life, and am looking forward to DMing something interesting on here too! Looking forward to working with some awesome players! :3
CHARACTER CREATION Books Permitted: d20 Modern, d20 Apocalypse
Books Tentatively Permitted: d20 Future, d20 Weapons Locker
Level: 1 - You've been a survivor for a little while, maybe a year. You live in what now passes for the city of New Arconia, which is essentially in a physical location similar to Arizona.
Ability Points: 6m5d6v2 or 35 point buy. If roll is below 35 point buy, use 35 point buy instead. You can swap out a higher point buy valued roll for a 35 point buy that you have control over, but no bonuses are received due to the high value of a roll.
Wealth: (4d10 + Wealth Bonus from Profession) * 2 TUs (Must all be spent at character creation or lost. Please familiarize yourself with the TU system in d20 Apocalypse.)
HP: Full HP at Level 1.
Technology Level: Effectively PL 5
- Any equipment that would be considered Military grade in the d20 System is not permitted at first level, nor are heavy weapons.
- Cash is mildly flexible if you can make a case for it. If you want a car but don't have enough cash to afford it, I will touch base with you on this and figure stuff out.
- Windfall is not permitted. The Profession skill has no effect in this world. Characters do not gain wealth increases at level-up.
- I'm very much against Mutations at this point, at least at first level.
- I have no intention of including mystical powers of any kind at this stage.
- I'm open to a lot of things, if even for the sake of character, just ask first. As things need to be added to the game description, I will add them.
- Please keep in mind that the more I have to work to believe that your character is an average person who just happened to survive the disaster, the less likely you are to be accepted. Keep this in mind with all aspects of the character, including what they posess, how they act, and what powers they have.
