The town of Winterhaven stands watch over a ruined keep that was once a bastion of good in the realm. This keep overlooks the Shadow Rift, a dark scar in the world that was once a gateway to the Shadowfell but has been dormant for many years. Now, an evil cleric of Orcus, Demon Lord of the Undead, seeks to re-open the gate, and the only thing standing in his way is a small yet determined band of heroes.

This is a level 1 adventure. Start with 100gold and a free adventurer's kit.
Races:PHB1 and Essentials races only please, no shardminds, or Eberron construct things or other weirdness. Standard fantasy races. Although I do have DDI I'm too old school for monster races.
Classes: They all are viable in DDI. WoTC ones only but I will accept the core roles before others:
We need 4-6 players consisting of:
Leader: Occitan (Cleric), sean2653 (Shaman)
Defender: dariathalong (Battlemind) - pending, UndrekThoz (Paladin) - pending
Striker: Fiend (Fighter/Rogue) - pending
Controller: onlie2005 (mage), Boar (Sorcerer) - pending
Others: after the core 4 then duplicates and multiclass or hybrids.
I use a combination of the DDI Virtual Table and Fantasy Grounds for tracking the action, showing map positioning and so forth. I then screenshot it, upload to my skydrive and embed and/or link to it.
I tend to be very liberal with Action Points in order to move combat along faster for PBP. You do not have to apply with a fancy Creative Writing 101 bio. to apply for the game. Indeed how much of a background can a level 1 have anyway? Apply with a character name, race, role & class, brief background, you may want to tie this into your theme and background benefit. Again this doesn't have to be a novella.
thank you and let us have some fun!
