    Default Bel's Megadungeon OOC



    Here's my 16:
    Spoiler
    Show

    1. What game system are you running (D&D, Call of Cthulu, Palladium, GURPS, etc.), and if applicable what edition (Original, Classic, Revised, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 10th, etc.)?
    3.5 Gestalt

    2. What 'type' or variant of game will it be (i.e. "Shadow Chasers" or "Agents of Psi" for d20 Modern)? What is the setting for the game (eg. historic period, published or homebrewed campaign setting, alternate reality, modern world, etc.)?
    Sandbox world starting inside a giant kill room.

    3. How many Players are you looking for? Will you be taking alternates, and if so, how many?
    4-6, apply with a character and background and I will choose from the pool of applicants

    4. What's the gaming medium (OOTS, chat, e-mail etc.)?
    These Forums

    5. What is the characters' starting status (i.e. experience level)?
    18th level, LA buy off is in effect. It will reduce your starting level.

    6. How much gold or other starting funds will the characters begin with?
    440,000 gp

    7. Are there any particular character classes, professions, orders, etc. that you want... or do not want? What are your rules on 'prestige' and/or homebrewed classes?
    No brew.


    8. What races, subraces, species, etc. are allowed for your game? Will you allow homebrewed races or species? 'Prestige' races or species?
    Savage races with a good reason (mostly RP), any civilized race. No cheesy templates. (Like god blooded, god-touched)

    9. By what method should Players generate their attributes/ability scores and Hit Points?
    32 point buy, max HP 1st level, 3/4 (rounded up) or rolled thereafter (re-rolling 1's)

    10. Does your game use alignment? What are your restrictions, if so?
    Alignment is in place for spells and spell affects. I'm lenient on Alignment restricted classes and Paladins have a more grey area.
    Alignment is like the Pirate code, it's more of a guideline than actual set of rules.

    11. Do you allow multi-classing, or have any particular rules in regards to it?
    Have at, no penalty.

    12. Will you be doing all of the die rolling during the course of the game? Will die rolls be altered, or left to the honor system? If players can make die rolls, which ones do they make, how should they make the rolls, and how should they report them?
    DM will make his rolls and some of players, Players will make their rolls most of the time.

    13. Are there any homebrewed or optional/variant rules that your Players should know about? If so, list and explain them, or provide relevant links to learn about these new rules.
    • Every class increases their skill points by 2 every level
    • Feats every other level
    • Teleportation is blocked by force effects.
    • Gates work on the same plane
    • Retroactive skill points
    • Max 2 flaws (Dragon magazine flaws preferred, please request with edition number)
    • Fractional Saves/BAB
    • up to 2 traits
    • 1 xp = 5 gp for crafting and spells (no costly spell components)
    • This VoP
    • 0% Psionic-Magic transparency
    • Tongues/Speak language affect don't work as per the spells, I will give you an interpretation of the language. (comes out to great RP and effects)
    • No PvP


    14. Is a character background required? If so, how big? Are you looking for anything in particular (i.e. the backgrounds all ending up with the characters in the same city)?
    Yes, skirt length is fine.
    See character background at bottom

    15. Does your game involve a lot of hack & slash, puzzle solving, roleplaying, or a combination of the above?
    This is going to be purely one encounter followed by another, in rooms, with a sprinkling of RP in between, like truffles.

    16. Are your Players restricted to particular rulebooks and supplements, or will you be allowing access to non-standard material? What sources can Players use for their characters?
    Any WoTC. (and that is it)


    I did something very similar a while back, which was epic, and people got salty when I started throwing normal environmental challenges at them, which confused me to no end. Yes, the rooms may be filled with lava, or water, or packed with Aboleths, or may be a mini demiplane, or a liches phylactery that animated and has a mini plane inside, or...well, it's endless really, be ready, and willing for anything..

    I've been having troubles recently with my games sputtering out after the initial start up, so this game should be perfect, as it's pretty straight forward.

    Please contact me on discord (link is in my sig).

    As far as cheese goes, I'm not a huge fan to be honest, but I know most of the tricks, and if you are required to use things, so will I.

    Oh, another thing, I feel when I am given the chance to ad-lib, things go smoother, so don't expect normal things, or monsters, or whatnot. :P

    I normally avoid using coloured text for speech due to posting on a mobile, but as this time I'm running two characters I'll try it.

    Thanks for picking me! There were a lot of strong entities IMO.

    Hey hey! Sorry for the day-late reply, as of today I've started helping my grandma move and we can say I've been just a little bit busy with it

    Given that Romulus has picked Red, Remus will speak in Fire Brick, if that's doable

    "Kayda," the dark-haired woman interjects.

    I'm not sure these colours are working for me, they're a bit light. I don't want to have to add Bold tags just to make them legible. Going to try a shade darker.

    "My name is Mia Madsen, agent of Archmage Elorin. And this is my sister-"
    "Kayda," the dark-haired woman interjects.

    Edit: Yes, that's much better.

    personally if you could still go a shade darker my eyes would appreciate it

    One shade up on the blue is this, and I don't like it unfortunately.

    This is one shade up on the grey. it's getting away from the silver I originally envisaged for Kayda, and neither of these are particularly distinct from the standard black text anymore.

    I don't really want to be entering custom colour codes tbh.

    No worries, people can always highlight your text if need be.

    If you all are done conversing, feel free to go through the portal, or not, whatever works im not going to force you to do anything.....yet.

    it's shadowy illumination, so without low light vision\light source:

    "a character can see dimly. Creatures within this area have concealment relative to that character. A creature in an area of shadowy illumination can make a Hide check to conceal itself."

    Geeks, I think we all have enough buffs up that overlap is a risk. Could your statblock state the type of bonuses your auras are granting please?

    Imagine having buffs lol

    Thanks for the reminder though, because I *do* have a few worth mentioning!
    -If you're withing 5' of Remus and he's in Punishing Stance, Ironheart Aura grants you a +2 bonus to your saving throws (eh)
    -If you're in melee with a creature that Romulus and Remus are in melee with too, then:
    --Romulus and Remus treat the enemy as Flanked (Double Team feat)
    --If you have +3 BaB or more (duh?), then you treat them as flanked too (Superior Flank Teamwork Benefit, DMG II)
    --If the flanked creature has Improved Uncanny Dodge, then they have to have 32 rogue levels to avoid being flanked (secondary benefit of the above; Remus has 18 rogue levels and Romulus 10; both stack for if any team member can flank them. Sadly, other anti-flank things still work )
    --If Remus is in his Tactics of the Wolf stance, then any ally also flanking them (read: anyone in melee) gets a +9 damage bonus to their attacks

    That's pretty much it though. Romulus has some things too, but I deffo don't know them like he does.
