I currently run a home brew
face to face DnD game, using LOTFP as the rule set. It is a harsher
grittier world and game than traditional DnD. I was thinking of running
a game here on G+, non-flailsnails, in the same world with the same
system that takes place on a different continent of my world, where what
you guys do here on G+ affects what happens in my face to face game and
vice-versa. It will not be a dungeon crawl, it will be a full scale
campaign. Dungeons may be a part of it here and there, but it is a
sandbox game where you are in control of your own destinies. I have a
full blown player handout if we decide to get this off the ground, but
here's the gist of it:
There are no gods of good or evil. The
church is like the mafia. Good and evil as concepts do not exist. It's
just them v us. If you are looking to play a paladin or a hero, this
is not the game for you.
Likewise, if you can't be a
self-directed adventurer, this is also not the game for you. By that I
mean you won't be sitting at the bar waiting for rumors of some lost
city, or have a damsel in distress come in crying for help. You need to
go out and based on who and what you know, what you discover and learn,
and what you do, forge your own destiny. I'll give tons of hooks and
info, you guys take all that and run with it and make of your pc's what
You can only play as a human and in one of the four
basic classes in LOTFP. All other races and classes are npc types to be
You have no history or backstory. You will be from a
village in the middle nowhere with no knowledge of the rest of the
world around you. Your sister wasn't captured by orcs waiting to be
rescued, your father wasn't a great warrior, etc. you are nothing but
what you make if yourself as an adventurer.
No one cares about
you ---not the gods, the church, the rulers, maybe not even your own
village-you're not special, no one has a destiny, there are no noble
quests waiting to be taken. The level of sociopathy in this world is
much higher than in our own. If anything this is a Darwinian
story-game about power and survival. Brains, cunning and survival
instincts of the player will determine how well you do here.
know the game style is not for everyone. It took me a year of searching
in real life to put together a face to face group that this appealed to,
another year of play to get a solid group of players who enjoy and are
good at playing such a game, after going thru a dozen or so others who
tried it and found it not to their tastes.
Have no illusions,
it's dangerous. In a year my group has gone thru about twenty five pc's
and followers combined. One guy who left the group said I dm'd the game
like Tony Soprano would. Which I took as a great compliment, because
it's what I was aiming for in the tone and theme of the campaign.
all that being said, is anyone interested in such a game to be run on
G+ every other Friday night from about 9 pm USA east coast time until
midnight or so?
