Default OMG, It's Dungeons & Dragons!

Or considering the last campaign I ran, Towns N' Nazis, but thats' beside the point.

First order of Business. Anybody ELSE want to DM? If not, I shall do so.

Next, Do we REALLY want to use the combat rules? they are too clunky to use directly on the Internet, so if I DM We shall use a more Abstract system. (That doesn't much involve movement, Since that's where the Complications arise.)

Finally, What Setting Shall we use? I'm no good with established settings (I.E. Faerun, Eberron.) And I have some good ones up my sleeve. I have one in mind that should be perfect, If you don't mind a few changes to the basic setting. (Read, "My setting has Muskets, Cannons, Flying castles, and a shitload of Nazis!")

oh, and those of you that Expressed Interest, Do it again in this thread, Please.

I think so, sounds interesting, get a couple of others on here, and we have a party. As of right now though, I'd have to sit this one out, but I will watch it of course, I haven't had anything to do with D&D forever. He probably rolls dice and posts the outcome or somehting of that nature if he is DMing.

the D&D online forum has Code for rolling Dice online, but since we are lacking that, My rolling dice is kinda neccesary...Unless A) you have dice and I can trust you, or B) We just RP and Screw the Rules.

Well, Alrighty than. I believe we Need Chars. If the rules be screwed, all thats Really important is that any mages follow rules regarding spells and usage. Y'know.

Once we have Chars, we can start. If party has less than 4 memebers, NPCs will be added.

Race Choices for my Setting
Human
Elf
Half-Elf
Halfling
Half-Orc
Gnome
Elf Subraces, (wood elf, Wild elf, Drow, and Frost elf are Exceptable.)
Common Giants are fine, though their a race I just recently added, but this makes Half-Giants OK too.

Oh, And Dwarves, all Subraces, Duergar and Derro Included.

I suppose you really ment what Classes are there?
*Cough* that will be one hell of a list, so just tell me what you Want to do, and I'll tell you what Class you're looking for. (NOTE: Actually only 12 base classes, but add specializations and Prestige classes and the list quadruples.)

All for now.

Don't worry about sending me stuff, I don't need much, really.
Go ahead and roll your own stuff, We'll just work on an honor system here.

Weapons, well, You have, let's say 1,000GP and buy what you can for that.

All weapons are exceptable. Including Exotics and Oriental Weapons. No Firearms Except the Following, At this point anyway.

Add the following to the list:
These should be easy to find...
Musket Pistol, 250GP
Musket, Rifle, 500GP
Musket Balls, Bag of 10 for 3GP
Powder, Horn for 35GP, enough for 32 shots.

If you Can find a merchant that's selling These...
Zalstienian Repeater Rifle 700 GP
Zalstienian Revolver 500 GP
"" Halberd Rifle 1000 GP
"" Blade Pistol 800 GP (Always Masterwork)
Cartridges, 1GP a piece.

(NOTE: Zalstienian after Zalstien, A country to the West....Though knowing my luck with language, its quite likely also something very offensive in german...)

Some other stuff, But it isn't readily Available at first level or in the "Starting town.

EDIT:
I knew I friggen forgot something! Oops, Yeah, Dwarves and all subraces are exceptable. Sorry

thac0's sig: Usually LE, sometimes CG, most recently: CN.

zabur: A Halflin Rogue? Uber Cliche! But perfectly okay, of course.

I've decided to change my class/race, YAY!

Well, I roll up a character right now, and post it here.

I'll edit this post with the new information ^_^

Also...my sig is from 1984 -.-....I have no idea what you are talking about.

How about giving us an intro to the world before we do anything?

oh.....Well...Even if It's not Original, I assure you that IS on the cieling of the Chapel Primus too...Those SOBs at Games Workshop should stop stealing quotes....

teh world, General Idea: A somewhat Cliche setting I came up with awhile ago.

Geo: The world consists of three main Contenents, I havn't named them yet, though. The one the campaign will start on is located in the Southwest, (Southwest hemisphere) and is occupied by a large variety of Terrains and countries.

to the north of that is the mandatory "Islands-O-Snow" and to the north east is Zalstien, (A completely random name, but as I said, with my luck, likely something offensive in a Foreign language.)

Game starts on the eastern side of the former, in a small kingdom called (Randomly) Eb, (not the Dungeon Siege one!)

Society stuff: Like most settings, this one contains a large number of races and subraces. all the standard races are represented and have at least one kingdom on the main continent. Unlike most settings, Giants (Of the non-Evil Varieties at least.) are accepted members of general society. (Thus the "Common Giant" race, Appearance Exactly like Human, but twice as tall. Giant Elves are acceptable too. If you need the racial modifiers, ask.)

The main kingdoms are usually rather friendly diplomatically. The exception is those Bastards from Zalstien. More on this in Part 3...

Tech: The tech level is Quite high, with firearms just entering mass acceptance, and steam-powered vehicles are just hitting the drawing boards. (wheter they will replace magical vehicles, who knows.)

Though almost everyone has access to and uses technology, Zalstien seems to have an innate grasp of it, already manufacturing repeating weapons, such as revolvers and Cylandir cartridge rifles. (Revolver Rifles.) This doesn't mean they have no magic, however... Since they have this huge advantage, Zalstien decides to go conquer the main continent, seeing as they are so much "better" than everybody else...Yup, you guessed it, Their friggen Nazis. Feel no shame in killing them. They're evil. those that aren't are too Brain-Washed to know the difference.

Beyond that it's standard fantasy stuff....just with a few less dragons, a lot more Nazis, and some flying castles to boot.

Questions?

so it's a lot like our world somewhere between the late 18 and early 1900s but with magic and fantasy races right? would that mean that clothing styles would lean more towards manufactured than homemade?

I decided to make a Barbarian, so you can start planning since you at least know what I'll play as.
