Forum game discussion topic

The_Ensorceler suggested to do a forum game on the IRC a few days ago - as has been discussed in the past as well I think. I have no clue in what form that would be, but I just wanted to make this topic to say I strongly support this idea!

It's not dead yet! I've got some more writing to do first, but the game should be ready soon. Link to the current rules is here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1kAam7iDa1m_M_JNxvtd3bdsfT5g6bxySdcPpmFbINuE/edit?usp=sharing
Comments are open, so feel free to leave notes or suggestions, but remember they aren't done yet.

Additionally, it seems kind of a waste to just have me talk about my thing here, so if anyone else wants to run a game, on my system or another, post about it! I'm sure there are a lot of people who'd join, whatever the game.

EDIT: Obviously, I never finished those rules.

Opening a fifth edition D&D game around new years. Looking for 4-6 players, custom world. Basically anything goes, as long as it is well balanced with other party members. Player characters will start at level one.

Oo, sounds interesting. Just have a couple questions first. Is this going to be done over irc/forum/text or voice chat like ventrilo/teamspeak? Also, how receptive are you to newcomers? I've dabbled a little in 4th edition, but haven't even seen 5th edition yet. I've always been interested in actually playing though.

The Ensorceler

I don't mind newcomers, of any kind, really (to d&d, to role playing, to active participation on this here forum, whatever). There are drawbacks to running it on both the forum (slower) and irc (difficult to use a map), so I haven't decided yet.

Maybe you could use a program like https://roll20.net/ to actually play the game on with IRC (which you could stream perhaps if anyone on this sites IRC wants to watch), then do the equivelent to a dwarf fortress story after each session to post on the forum?
