Quest For My Left Sock

Once upon a time, a magician and his followers travelled across the Valley of Misery, complaining the entire way. They then stopped briefly in the Land of Perpetual Tuesday (they arrived and left on the same day), journeyed across the Mountains of the Ants (really only about 2 feet tall each, easy journey for humans) and finally reached the Point of No Return, from which, sadly, they have not returned.

This is not their story.

This is, however, a story about King Harold the Whiny, supreme ruler of the State of Confusion. King Harold has misplaced some very important footwear - footwear that is enchanted to travel through tiny wormholes in the Ethereal Plane and gather at an unknown location somewhere else in the world. He has therefore charged an adventuring group with seeking out this footwear at all costs and returning it to him. Given the state of his bare foot, the collective sense of smell of the entire kingdom could be at stake....

-------

This is, obviously, a parody game. Although we will be following the 3.5 D&D rules and my very serious house rules to the letter, that ruleset will serve as the skeleton to a very not-serious storyline. Your characters will, at times, be very aware that they are characters in a roleplaying game (special thanks to Rich Burlew from The Order of the Stick for compelling me to entertain this idea), and the conventions of gravity and laws of physics may be altered by the DM for the sake of a good joke.

I'll take 10 people, first come, first serve. Don't make a character yet - I may be making some last minute house rules for this kind of thing. (For example, I'm considering "Cartoon" as a race option - Roger Rabbit, eat your heart out. )

Posting expectancy is 1 per day, with the occasional missed day permissible.

I would like to play

Speeking as a serious Terry Pratchet and Order of the Stick fan, I would love to play this.

Count me a dedicated member of your campaign. This sounds like an excellent idea, as I hate taking DND too seriously: It's fantasy! I do take the trivial things of life seriously however, thanks to my good buddy Oscar Wilde.

Excellent, I love things like this, Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, not to mention Robert Rankin. I'm in for this one!

Hmmm.... 8 out of 10 filled in the first half hour.... maybe I'd better take 20 and put them in two "groups" (not really groups, both groups would have the exact same plot, they'd just exist in alternate universes where everything's the same except the other group doesn't exist... you get the idea).

Is everyone as insane as me, or is it just truly a DM's market right now?

Isane? What's that? I just think that a lot of gamers are tired of some of the serious you must save the world or everyone dies horribly type game. This is an opportunity to do something else gamingwise that allows people to let go for a bit.

I might be as insane as you, considering that I'm all for it. But then again, I think it's a DM's market right now too.
