Game Description:

Swords, Sorcery and Sandals!

Great pebble strewn deserts and seas of shifting sands dominate the Western Lands. The narrow band of arable land surrounding a vast fresh water lake provides almost all of the habitable land in the West. War, disaster, mythical beasts and vile magic challenge the brave souls that carve out a living upon its shores.

Sorcery and Sandals uses the 1976 Dungeons & Dragons box set rules plus content from Chain Mail, the three supplements, Strategic Reviews, and early Dragon Magazine articles. In the tradition of OD&D I have brought in a few house rules and shook everything up to create a game set in a fantasy bronze age based off of Greek and Roman myths and Italian Sword & Sandal movies with a fair helping of pulp Swords & Sorcery for added excitement.

The biggest change from 0e is the lack of character levels. Mythical heroes are great warriors at the beginning of their careers. The excitement of their stories come from overcoming even greater evil by digging down deep and finding victory from hopelessness.

This is not a story of hobbits, elves and dwarves but a tale of men, great heroes, the stuff of myth and legends. This is not a story about delving in dungeons and stealing gold from long forgotten vaults. The Poleis of the Vast Lake suffer under the rulership of wicked kings, the threat of vile monsters, the curses of corrupted magicians, and at times the jealousy of the Olympians. Heroes are needed to make the world a safer place.

As with all my games there will be a fair amount of combat. I like action, but my primary focus for this game will be the creation of the myths surrounding the heroes. In this vain I would like to see a couple good well thought out and descriptive posts a week. No one liners!

Here are all the rules you will need.
Here are some details about the land
Here are character creation instructions

Oh man another game by BW...I missed the last recruitment because life was busy, it does that sometimes.

How many ways can I say "please, sir, may I have some nore"?

So interested in this.

@Elround4 No rules are required. I provided all the rules a player needs.
@Blackrazor I thought about it but M&M was too crunchy for what I want to do.

Darn! I was hoping for a harpist. I am not quite sure about shadows. I am kind of going for a Patrician character. I rolled a lot of gold. Shadows seem more like a Plebeian profession.

@Elround4 I didn't really set a hard deadline. I am done with school this week and lacrosse after next weekend. So I will really start getting serious at looking at characters around June 3rd. Maybe start on the 5th. If people are still working on apps I am willing to put it off a bit.
@Mhogrymm Nice to see you back on the weave!
