That's my full 20, quite possibly giving me the record for most slots filled in a five hour period. Anyone who wants in past this point will have to really beg and promise to be nice, and, and, uhhh, make a post declaring my coolness.

I think the occasional game that requires a minimum RPXP/post count is a good thing - kinda like a "prestige" game that you have to earn your way into. But I would never want to see it become any kind of standard around here. We need to remain as newbie-friendly as possible. In fact, I think I'm going to announce a contest one of these days - DM who runs the best newbie game gets a CS subscription on me, or something of the like. But that'll have to wait until January, Christmas shopping is going to make me a very poor gamer indeed.

All of that having been said, Link, no, I don't have a Co-DM, and don't really feel I need one. I'm just that good. (Actually, if this were a chat-based or in-person campaign, there's no way I'd even attempt 10 people. But at play by post speed? I could probably handle /ten/ groups of 10 in two hours a day flat. Not that I'd want to - at a certain point it just gets very tedious, and I /would/ like to be a player in a few of them.) I can guarantee game stability, though, particularly in a campaign like this - in a serious campaign, a person dropping out would create a huge continuity issue, but in this campaign, I've got a thousand choices - the Hand of God could come out of the sky and squish him like a bug, a wandering Bag of Holding could suck him up... you get the idea.

As for whether this is a Novice game... well, I'm not a novice DM, if that's what you're asking. 15 years on the bench, actually 20 but the first 5 I completely sucked. (Then again, modesty aside, it takes a rare 8 year old to even TRY DMing, much less have any success). And the game is not specifically geared towards Newbies - I have "Training Grounds" in the 3.5 Homebrew section for that, and yes, that game sure is going slow as molasses. But then that's because they're newbies - lots to teach.

If you want to see my DMing style in more serious settings, check out "The Politics of Manhood", also in the 3.5 Homebrew section.
I never had anything against newbies. I was merely stating that it was my experience as a DM. Not all newbies are like that. I have seen many people come to this site, be enthusiatic for a few days, and then dissappear. Never meant to offend those who are new. Look at my join date. I joined a little over a month ago. Look how many posts I have though... I have 32+ post/day.

I believe the application process has great turnouts, but like the DM said, this is a game where something such as someone dropping out will not be a problem. I ws trying to avoid wasted time and a boring game, that is all.

Sorry for any misunderstanding,
-LoL

As an FYI, we got our players so fast, the admins haven't even approved the request yet. Please keep an eye on this folder for the next day or so, I'll announce when the thread's been set up.

I'm deliberately not setting this game closed, though, because... I dunno, I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.

Hmmm, now for a character concept.... Can I have a free low stat? For humor's sake, like a rogue with a negative bonus wisdom might be fun. "HEY GUYS, LOOK, I'M STEALING THIS GUY'S WALLET, HE TOTALLY DOESN'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!!!"

Got me, man. I just work here.

Given that I'll probably be awarding XP for things like "Most dramatic pose struck during the sunset", it'll probably be a little faster than normal.

Hehehehe. Oh, don't worry, you'll have a low stat. Everyone will have a low stat.

Oh wow. I didn't realize Istanbul and Darth Cow were two different people at first. They both have red pictures.

Okay, so now we're at 22 - 2 groups of 11. I'll close the game when we get our thread - if it gets up to 24, I'll just do 3 groups of 8.
