Well its happened. A slow point in the game and a few of the players left. So, I am opening up the game for a few new faces.

King Landis decrees that adventurers are needed to seek out the Lost city of Aragoth. Those willing to undertake this journey will be granted their weight in gold. The only lead he has is a scrap of an old map that he found in his days as a conquerer. The King seeks all adventurers willing to seek out the legendary city.
This is going to be Gurps Fantasy game.

Game Description:

The World is one kingdom, and the bad lands. The king is immortal. His rule has been just for centuries. Two years ago, the king decreed that scouts would venture into the bad lands looking for an ancient city known as Aragoth.

In the past two years, starting the day that the scouts left the kingdom, orcs and goblins have been attacking from the badlands. Some 'scholars' have said that the king angered the gods and now his subjects pay for it.

The adventurers of the kingdom are broken down into scouts, knights, scholars, and rogues. Each depending on his weapon of choice and any talents he might have.

The gods of the kingdom are:
The King - Landis, the eternal.
The Shadow - Lashale, the hidden.
The Wraith - Gorin, the hunter.
The Scholar - Vena, the teacher.
The assassin - Dragon, the shadow walker.
The healer - Unicorn, the kind.
The watcher - Vani, the guide.

Most everyone follows the King, a few that actually worship him do so by upholding his wishes to the utmost.

Lashale is the god of rogues, good, neutral and evil.

Gorin is the god of the hunt and all things that move though the world with a single purpose. God of hunters of all types, a few assassins follow him.

Vena is the Goddess of learning and magic. She has some healers that follow her but most are those that study magic that has nothing to do with healing, nicknamed, Lady BOOM.

Dragon was an assassin in the early days of the world, every assassin knows of him and know the myth that he never died, that he is out in the world somewhere looking for a successor.

Unicorn is the goddess of healing, she appears as a beautiful woman in silken robes or polished plate. She governs the healing arts.

Vani is the only god that does nothing. She does not interfere with mortals, she records all their deeds. It is said that her books are what brings about the judgement at the end of a person's life.

Prime, Shadow, Light.
Fire, Air, Eath, Wather, Heavens, Hells

Not really something witty. Its just something.
I've been looking for a GURPS game to play in. How long are you recruiting? It will probably be this weekend before I get anything put together.

I remember looking at this when you advertised at first, and half-making a character. How many are you looking for, and is there a specific niche you hope to fill?

@Melverne, This will be open for at least a week. I hope to take the hopefuls and drop them into the game.

@galenbd, your welcome to try again.

@KingGoblin, open to about 4 people. If the first three post regularly and help advance the story, I will close it off, If not, then I will keep looking for active players.

Everyone, If I do not post directly after yours, or wait a day or two to post, please take the time to converse between your character and the others. I hope to build alliances within the party, even if there is a bit of discord.

Excellent. I have a concept ready to go. He won't be a combat machine so I hope that is not an aspect the party is missing. Is there anything I need to know about the setting? Are the current players heroic or are they inclined to do evil?

other than the above info, no. The current group is a mix of heroic types. One or two rogues are there as well.

Hello Silverthorne!! I have a very cool concept in mind for this. All races (that make sense) allowed for this?
