Recruiting hereos for the end of the world.

Of Gods and Kings: - Forum
Dungeons & Dragons 3.5e

Hi guys, I'm Sir. This is an ad for my level 20 gestalt 3.5 game. I know about all the woes so don't worry. So anyways this takes place in my homebrew setting. It will have a heavy focus on role play over roll play. I am looking for 4 Players. The deadline will be August 30th.

I know the appeal of gestalt but I am not looking for min max characters. I am looking for middling power level characters. You can find the creation rules in the character creation subforum.

A bit about the game. The PC's are already great hereos, and after five years apart they have reunited on the anniversary of their greatest victory and the loss of your dearest friend. They have returned to the village where they all met to find it destroyed. It seems like something simple, a destroyed village but who would dare. Someone is targeting the PC's. Trying to provoke them. As this new threat emerges it will reveal an ancient secret that could destroy the entire material plane.

Game Description:

Five years ago to the day you and your friends became heroes worthy of praise in deed and song. You defeated the Orc King Garnok and the ancient Red dragon Thelarox. You saved your homeland of Adenia from destruction but at great cost to you and your people. Prince Ezra of Adenia gave his life to see you to victory.

You and your comrades swore to gather again on the fifth anniversary of your victory, not only to celebrate but to remember Prince Ezra who fought valiently along side you. You have arrived in the village of Sutton where your original adventure began and you all met for the first time.

Upon arrival in Sutton you found the village to be in ruins. Signs of a battle all around the village but no sign of the villagers. Alive or dead.

I am very new to this scene. I used to play 3.5e lots but after having kids and no gaming for a few years I am rusty. I am interested in this but not sure on time. I still have an erradic scedule with 2 jobs and my young kids. How often are posts made? Do you think I still am a candidate to join this epic adventure?

Hi LadyTrinity, I'm still relatively new here myself. You have apply to the game with a character and take your chances at getting in. Posting will be once daily once the game gets started.

One can roleplay easily when in battle, but no one wants to build a level 20 gestalt character (I can take over a week to put one together) just to chat in a hundred posts.

So, when you mean the cliche'd "role play over roll play" do you mean a few battles with massive soap opera drama as the main focus? Or do you mean you expect us to use all of our skills and abilities during combat and not just hack and slash?

Roleplaying Examples







Because I love high level characters and definitely think they should have deep stories and personalities. But I wouldn't want to put together all that crunch just to have a diplomatic game for six RL months. LOL

The idea of playing OP post game characters who now have to focus more on an interpersonal crisis rather than putting more stacked +1's into your enemy sounds fun.

Both. Battles will require the use of more than brawn and the story will be really involved. You might fight an enemy that can't physically be hurt so you have to find some other to kill it like drowning it or something. Just an example.

THAT'S the kind of game I like then. I was making sure we weren't going to be beat over the head with free form drama. Using our people's skills, spells, abilities, and mental capabilities are great. I never understood someone who builds a character like a card board cut out or plays a barbarian with an Int of 4 as a scholar on the outsider habits of soul crunching including history of the very word. LOL
