My GURPS Traveller game that was being run on *another* board has now ended. Anyone still here who might be interested in a GURPS Traveller game? I have no immediate plans for what kind of game it might be, but the game that was being played here sorta turned into a trade-based game. I dunno, I was thinking maybe something more militaristic? The setting is the Interstellar Wars period, Sol vs. Vland. Character mortality will surely be high, but, hey what better way for a PC to go out in a blaze of glory, sacrifice himself for his comrades in arms, and win major posthumous medals?

SEE POST 59 BELOW!

The roster for A Stranger land is essentially full -- however, additional characters may be considered.

I'm currently operating on sleep deprivation, so my Better Judgment may be temporarily on hold - - and so it begins...

A Stranger Land
A proposal for a PbP semi-realistic swords & sorcery GURPS4 game with an experimental twist.

Here's the thing... like any old GM, I have some game-worlds that are fairly well realized. Introducing new players to such worlds can involve a helluva lot of background information -- it's no surprise that some gaming sites include their own wikis. Well, some gamers appreciate worlds that come with built-in homework -- and some don't. So how to start a campaign without requiring players to read a couple of textbooks first?

For some time now, I've been wanting to test out a campaign launch built around the fact that not only the players, but the characters as well have no knowledge of the world around them.
So imagine a game that begins with your characters doing their thing on their native fantasy world when something preposterous hurtles them through the void to a brand new fantasy world. The creatures, the cultures, even the magicks may be wildly or subtly different. The adventure would be to come to grips with this new reality and, assuming you wish to, finding a way home again.

A couple of points to note: the target world is a part of a multiverse, but not the IW multiverse; and thanks to previously established rules of my multiverse, your characters will know at least one language of their new world.

If I get at least 3 or 4 PMs from players with a firm interest, I'll launch the OOC thread. If not, this experiment gets pushed to the back of the cupboard again :)

Worlds of Fire is recruiting again. At present there is one (maybe two) opening available. Anyone wishing to join should consult the following:

They should also check the existing run in the IC thread for an idea of the kind of stuff that will be encountered.

Post at least a basic character template (check the Character Concept questions on Bp11 for an idea of the kind of information) either by PM or in the OOC thread.

[CONT'D from post #53 above]

GURPS Traveller update --

Current Incarnation of the game is to be a combat-centered ISW [Interstellar Wars] scenario, with PCs being Special-Forces-type troops fighting on the side of Terra against the Imperial Devils of Vland, dropped on planets in advance of a Terran invasion to soften-up resistance for the main battle force.

Players are now: bigjakev2.0, Marcus, and Frosty. Dorin Thorha was specifically invited to make up for his being bumped/denied entry to my last game, but he has declined for scheduling reasons. We have room for one more player, at least. We can certainly make a go of it with what we now have, but we'll accept one more, and I might just take two more. [MisterJuan? Sn0wball? doulos05?] Recruiting will close this coming weekend, Jan 13-15, 2012.

If interested, please see this thread: Recruiting Discussion

Weird Supers

This game is closed.

The basic idea: Play any character you want that can be built on 500 points. Then try not to let any of the other weird things in the universe do anything horrible to you.

A little more: With the last PbP game I tried to run, I ended up having to cancel it due to lack of time on my part. Now I'm at a place in my life where I have more time (out of school, have a job), and I want to try running one again.

However, I still don't like the fact that PbP is not really ideal for running combat. Solution: don't make a game built around the "fair fights" emphasized by recent editions of Dungeons and Dragons. Instead, let fights be terribly one-sided, and make part of the challenge figuring out how to end up on the right side of one-sided fights. Thus, fighting abilities will be useful, but so will stealth, information-gathering, social skills, and really any other ability you can think of. Also, I will play up the weird side of GURPS.

Full character creation guidelines, and how to join, at the OOC thread.

PBP Players Wanted: THE RISPIAN WEB (GURPS 4 gaming in Frank Herbert’s Duniverse)

Still Recruiting
- Bene Gesserit Adept
- Suk Physician


OVERVIEW
This campaign takes place in Frank Herbert’s galactic Imperium but in a time and place removed from the novels. The time is ten years before the events described in Dune. The place is the untamed world of Risp VII. The player characters form the newly-appointed entourage of a noble of House Drake, a Minor House owing fealty to House Olin, a bloodline nearing its end. Will young Areth Drake claim his birthright as Lord Conservator and perhaps even rise to siridar-Duke? If your team can keep him alive long enough to succeed his father, perhaps so. But on a wilderness world where the nobility can be as dangerous as the predators, it won’t be easy…

PLAYER CHARACTERS
We need 5 mature and dependable players to make up the entourage: Bene Gesserit Adept, Planetologist, Spymaster, Suk Physician, and Swordmaster. Players will build 200-point characters by customizing and expanding ~150 point occupation templates I’ll provide. Characters will earn XP through play.

The ideal player wants to immerse him or herself in the rich mood and trappings of the Age of the Human. If you’re excited about the prospect of unsheathing your kindjal or envenoming your flip-dart, together we’ll create a shigawire reel fit for the Padishah Emperor’s filmbook! But remember, always, The Forms Must Be Obeyed.

MECHANICS
We’ll use the GURPS 4e rule set, roll dice via Invisible Castle, and post twice weekly. Most weeks I can post more often, but that’s the minimum expectation. To maintain an air of mystery, we’ll communicate on two levels. We’ll use the forum thread for all IC/OOC posts that are public to the group, and Private Messages/email for confidential information. After all, the Great Schools do not share their secrets readily…

ABOUT THE GM
An experienced gamer, I play and sometimes GM the longstanding Team Weird Infinite Worlds campaign and GM a Banestorm fantasy campaign (both live). My sources for this campaign include The Chronicles of the Imperium and Dream of Rain RPGs and the Dune Encyclopedia. Recently I realized that it would be best run as a PBP so we can fully enjoy the nuances of character and setting.

IF YOU’RE INTERESTED
PM with your usual availability and your first and second choices of PC: Bene Gesserit Adept, Planetologist, Spymaster, Suk Physician or Swordmaster.

I see a looking for players but no players looking for a game.

I am looking to join in a play by post game.

I have been playing in a starwars (Meet IRL) and a Dungeon Fantasy (PBP) I would love to find a game here to join in.

Are there any available?
