Hey there! I know I haven't been seen or heard from lately, but I've settled in my new town with my new job and I'm now trying to find something to entertain myself with. I was not impressed by the local gaming group here, and am thinking that I might like to start a little campaign of my own online. The setting would likely be the homeworld where my novel in progress is taking place. See, I've reached a point where I'm in a funk and don't know what is going to happen next in this epic adventure. I think it would be a lot of fun to follow the story as a D&D campaign and let the players shape the story in their image.
The question is, would any of you be interested? We would probably use either OpenRPG, a program made for playing tabletop games online, or a Mu* server owned by another friend of mine. Either way, the programs are free for download, so that wouldn't be a problem. I also love putting together webpages for the campaigns I run, which would include PC and NPC information, maps and experience points records. And finally, we could put together an LJ community of some kind to post people's character journals if you like.
At the moment, I'm thinking of starting it as a planehopping adventure, with the first PCs coming from Faerun or Krynn or some other D&D world. This would keep you all from having to face circumnstances where your character knows more than you do, and would allow me to explain the world to you as we go. There would be unique races to encounter as well, and if your original characters died, you'd be welcome to try out some of the new PC races.
So, what do you guys think? Any thoughts or suggestion would be welcome and I'd love to get something started if I have interested players!
