I've had a lull in some of my games on the weave, so here I am, running Tomb of Horrors. See below for details. As always, I'm not perfect, so please let me know if I missed anything.

Game Description:

Who: Players need not be experienced, but must be literate writers, good role players, and reliable. Last is most important.
What: The 3.5 update for the famous D&D module: Tomb of Horrors.
Where: I use an amalgamation D&D universe with all (nearly) of the campaign settings present. Point of Origin: Greyhawk.
When: Consider all of the calendars synced at the generic "start time" for the campaign setting of your choice.
Why: I wanted a relatively fast-paced game with reliable players.

Character Creation:
Sources: All Official WotC 3.5 Books/Web Articles. No 3rd Party/Homebrew. No exceptions. Magazines case by case.
Level 8, 36 Point Buy, Max HP at 1st, Roll the rest with a minimum of HD rounded down + CON each level.
2 Flaws, 2 Traits (NO HOMEBREW)
Standard WBL
Action Points are in use as per the SRD

What to Expect:
I want this to be fun for everyone.
I value role playing greatly and use circumstance bonuses, ad-hoc rewards, and the like.
I do not pull punches, but I try and play by the rules.
Occasionally, I mess up. Please point it out in a polite manner.
If you disagree with me in any way, or have a request for a change or bending of a rule, bring it up politely and we can discuss.
My word is Law (see above though).
Around 1 post a day from me. I expect the same from my players. Weekends I tend to be more lenient.

Expect one well formatted daily post and lots of badly formatted phone posts.
Ooh, sounds like fun. Never played ToH but I'm very much up for it. A higher- (8th) level game with all (it is all, right?) allowed sources makes a bit of a change, too - might be a chance to roll out one of those cool character concepts I've had on the backburner for a while now.

Are sources from Dragon Magazine allowed? I know it says official WOTC sources, but given it's nature I thought I'd double check.

One concept I would like to explore which is not really in any homebrew or sourcebook , is cooking. Using the spleen of a displacer beast in a meal and the jerky you scrounge up and make gives you blur for for 5 rounds or something. Would you be willing to explore such a concept as a skill and useage on the monsters you use here.

I'm not sure that's how cooking works. I think normally, you would just get food poisoning (which really sucks).

looks interesting, definitely going to apply with something. What do you want for applications?

Always wanted to play a ToH game but never had the chance. I will apply with something. Not sure what yet. But should be fun.

When is the cut off date for this?
Standard 8th level treasure? Any class restrictions on 3.5 material?
Flaws and Traits mandatory?
Anybody up for having linked back stories?

I might just go Fighter.

I am playing a front line fighter type with a slight twist. I will be wielding a greatsword and be your meat shield but I also have a couple tricks up my sleeve.

I am apparently blind today. ANyone know what page in the DMG the wealth by level thing is? Like how much gold for gear an 8th level character has?
