Open Invitation

Hey! If you want to be a part of the testing, drop a post in here. I want to make sure stuff stays rolling, so I will be quick to swap in new folks.

Keep in mind: this is for playtesting. I WILL be making a game out of this to see how things are affected both in and out of combat... but I am mostly interested in seeing if this system will actually work.

If you are invited to be a member of the testing, I am looking for seasoned gamers that know how 3.x traditionally works, and thus can really understand the differences being suggested here.
I am NOT looking or reckless joyriders. I am looking for folks that are willing to work toegther, and I mean work. I don't need posting every day... I probably won't either... but being here at least every other day to make sure we are keeping our fingers on the pulses of each other so we know how things are coming along will be greatly appreciated.

This is a volunteer effort, I recognize this. It's just a game. So I certainly can't and won't get upset oif folks walk away, but I will be swift to find replacements.

YOU MUST HAVE ACCESS TO EXCEL. I use excel for mapping combat, and it is a fantastic tool. OpenOffice can work, but ha sproven to be "troublesome" in the past.

Hey! I know some folks have taken interest over in the advertisements folder, but I want you to place your interest here so I know who's paying attention!

Here is a formal reprinting of the original advertisement....

Quote:
Hey folks!

I"m looking for a slew of people to playtest some ideas I have.
I will run it like a normal game, except I won't be going from level 1 to 2 etc.
We'll build characters at level 5, then take them to 10 then 15 then 20.. and then build different characters and take them from 5 to 19 to 15 to 20.
I'll add a story element like a normal game to put th eplaytesting into "real world" environment of gaming.

Here is the relavent material bein playtested....
ToB Martial Adepts point system
Per Encounter Spell Point System
You are welcome to question or debate the proposed systems in their appropriate threads; not here.
IF you wat to be a part of the test to prove it works, or prove it DOESN'Twork... fine by me. I'm looking for flaws and brokenness, and will be open to changing things that become apparently non-working.

What I ask for:
1. this s a PbP environment, so unfortunately, combat is gonna move pretty slow. I need dedication and patience.
2. Since I"m playtestin online, I need to use a graphics interface for accurate tactical mapping. You must have excel to apply. I do all my mapping in excel. Open ofice can be allowed, as long as the map makes sense to you.(it doesn't always translate correctly)
3. while I inted this to be fun, I want good feedback, so don't just how up to play. look for ways to break the system, and be availabl to discuss them.
4. I expect to see high level play fairly quickly. I don't EXPECT you to have high level experience, but I would hope that you have sound theory involving high level play. If you are intimidated by teen level games, be honest and don't apply.
5. I expect to be changing characters every cycle, so don't get too attached, but be willing to be involved in the campaign to better feel how it will work.


I am checking interest, and would be happy to move forward with people by the weekend.

I will be looking for folks mostly to play adepts and casters. rogues aren't so important to the tests, so I will be nixing most traps, focusing more on pure combat to weigh numbers and flow of combat.
In the first run, I want to stick to a single class o multi no prc's.... druids, clerics, wizards, dread necros, beguilers, all the adepts, bards, psywarriors, psions, wilders duskblades etc. are what I want to focus on initially. Full casters and 6/9 casters.
In the second run, I will want to switch to different characters, including rangers and paladins, hexblades etc, along with PrC's
In the third run, I'd like to start mulitclasing to see how gish and multicasters fair.


I would like at least 4 people, but I am happy to keep a larger pool... I may be able to run two tests simultaneously, or I may ask for a substitute to replace a fallen tester.

Again, if you have questions about the proposed systems, take it to those threads.
If you have question about how I will conduct the playtesting/how I will conduct the game, here is where you will ask.

Thanks in advance!
Right now, I am looking for a few more to play BASE CLASSES with FULL CASTING or ToB Martial Adepts.
Like, wizard, cleric, druid, dread necro, beguiler, crusader, swordsage, warblade, warmage, wu jen, etc. stake your claim, and later, you'll ditch that choice and play around with other classes.

Ah yeah. Good point.
A background will be nice for the sake of in charcer continuity,but doesn't need to be very in depth compared to a normal gaming.
Basically, I'm goig to drop the team into "missions" to perform. YOu will have an obective, and various levels of informatin, and then you go about achieving your goal from there.
I"ll have around 4 -6 worthy encounters per level to get a feel for what can be done, and then we'll bump our characters up a few levels, progress the storyline for the sake of continuity, and do another 4-6 encounters etc.

We'll start at 5 and end at 20, and pproach each level as a sort of movie in a series.
Iwill be keeping things prety straight forward like an action film, but allow you to dig around for clues etc. I"ll be pretty open, so don't feel like "fil gave us a fight scene, so we have to figt".
IF your team can figre a way around a scenario, that is a victory... just do a fav ad don't be facifists.

I will start the team off as knowing each other, so don't be anything too wacky. the echnical bit is more important than playing out our dream characters. keep em kkinda white bread, but interesting enough tat you'd want to watch them in a show or a movie.

Levels of optimization are not a big concern... tkae whatever feats you want to achieve the effect you desire. We're playing a SINGLE CLASS this time around, so Kael, for example, will play a Wizard. that is wizard 20 straight through.
In later testing, we'll make new characers (honestly, you can keep the pesonality and background if you want, but I encourage you to switch up what type of character you are playing.. like kael shouldn't be a wizard the 2nd and 3rd way around) and I'll make a new line of adventures starting 5 - 20.

Hopefully the game itsel will be lighthearted, and a bit more than just dungeon grind.
Once you get the okay from me here, go over to the OOC Technical Discussion thread, and we'll start talking character.

Would a Wu Jen (Complete Arcane p14) work similar to as wizard when it comes to spellpoints? If so I would like to run one of them.

wu jen would work as you expect: full advancement table, but you'll use the wu jen prepared per day list and class features etc. You will NOT gain access to any sorceror specific spells though.
Pheonix, yer good. make sure to coordinate with Dael on how you two will function together and act acordigly.

ToB fighter is of course good to go as well. THanks for our contributions and questions thusfar. Crusader will be a fun play methinks.

I"ll take 1-3 more folks for this first round. Once e finish, the first round, I may wswitch up who is involved, depending on your level of participation.

Hi Maj!
swordsage is good. jump over to the tech thread, throw something together, mix it up with kael and pheonix, and we'll scrounge up a 4th to get started.

we're still looking for one more. A cleric would be nice. As soon as we have a 4th, we're starting!

Glad you could make it!

we got ourselves a football game-- let the riots commence!

Others are still welcome... PbP is an ever changing environment to say the least. The more interested the merrier.

We'll start talking gestalt here.



As mentioned in the adv ertisement folder, yes. i want to do some playtesting using fun gestalt rules.

Reprinted:

Quote:
i want folks playing some sort of caster or martial adept on at least one side of the build

we'll start at 5th jump to 10th 15th 20th and then start over with different characters.

for now only one prc to a side, but you can include "combo" classes like mystic theurge unseen seer etc. duskblade and similar base classes are effectively "combo classes"... we'll proceed on a case by case basis.
monster classes are allowed, hd and la adjustment effect i side only... a minotaur//duskblade is perfectly legal, for instance... we'll use f&k awesome rules. if you dont know em ask if it matters to your build.

full wealth by level as you wish.custom gear with accurate math annd my approval

all stats start at 13, you can raise one stat by lowering another. no stat my drop below 8, no stat may rise above 18 then add level and racial adjustments.

again, we start at 5th, we'll then leap to 10th.

I'll make it eberron, but im no fanboy. be as knowledgable or ignorant as you wish.

we'll see what the team is and then make a story out of it.
I use excel to map... you'll want to be able to access that sort of file to play.

I'll be running a slew of combat in this to give the point systems the works, but we'll have plenty of roleplaying etc.

You probably have questions. Go ahead . )
