Starting a New PbP Game Funnel with Portal Under the Stars

Post by IronDM72 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 12:17 pm

Starting a new PbP with Portal Under the Stars. Eventually will make into campaign with a Thundaar kind of world. Once I get MCC I will incorporate it. The dice rolling is based on trust and funnel PCs are 4 to a person. Looking for four people to game with.

I'm in for some PBP action. How often are you planning on posting (day = round of action)?

Interested, but I know Portal too well.

Maybe if there's room once you hit 1st Level, I can add in... 8)

You want to switch to Sailors, instead?

Haven't read it, since I hoped to play it first before reading...!

Let me cook up some Zeroes and I'll get them posted here.

Eor "laugh in the face of danger" McCrapstats has an unhealthy curiosity (i.e. luck of 4) for well construction and may have to find this well for "documentation".

"You stand before the ruined keep, which squats atop a low, craggy
hill, its walls of toppled stone and massive granite blocks hinting at
forgotten battles and the clash of mighty armies. Now the ruins seem
host only to creeping vines and the foul miasma that drifts down
from the keep. The air is overrun with pestilence. Fat flies bite at you incessantly,
and clouds of small black insects choke your every breath. The long abandoned land is choked with thorny vines that drape the sickly
trees and hang from the ruined walls. There is an odor of rot and
decay, as if the hill itself were decomposing from within.
A sight gives you pause: a ragged banner, depicting a crimson skull
on a black field, stands high atop the ruined walls. Whatever lurks
within has terrorized you and your village for far too long.
You turn to your companions and ready your meager weapons. The
time for retribution has come
. "

// Gnomboy here is what know and think about the keep
"While the keep fell to the armies of good, they did not
eradicate its fell legacy. Evil still festers within the ruined
walls, awaiting the day when it can emerge once
more."
Narrative
The road leading to the keep lies before each of you. The road is solid and dry. The flag is whipping in the wind. The question on each your mind is how to approach the keep in the distance. The road appears to be the easy path or do you want to walk around the Keep? Approaching any other way will require you to climb either a wall or walk over rubble.
//Player Response
Let me how you want to approach the Keep.

In such numbers as we have (?) we think the road is fine for the approach. We can always scatter into the trees if we need to... [not-so-famous last words]

Pitchforks and torches at the ready I agree with marching up the road. Besides there's strength in numbers (and slow cousins to hide behind should something go wrong).

I'd say yes, three players would be great -- but ultimately it's up to the GM...
