    This topic is to be used for the growing interest in Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons, and Roleplay Gaming in general on Smogon. Since most campaigns don't require a thread to function, this is a thread for both potential players and hosts to organize.

    Tabletop Players

    If you're an experienced player or a noobie who would be interested in playing a game on Smogon, please post here. Unlike Mafia, Roleplay Gaming is something that people usually get together once a week for, so listing your availability is very important. This allows hosts to pick the best players for their games.

    Feel free to post a bit about yourself, but please list;

    Availability (Weekends, Nights, etc.)
    Timezone
    Preferred Games (D&D, Pathfinder, Gurps, Exalted, etc., feel free to say if you are open to anything)
    Experience Level (Subjective, just how much roleplaying you've done)


    Game Masters

    For right now I think it would be best to get each individual game approved as per the Circus Maximus rules. Post a synopsis of your game, obviously you are trying to get people to play it so feel free to go into as much detail as you want.

    Make sure to include;

    What game is it?
    How many players do you want?
    Is it a module or homebrew?
    What kind of schedule do you want to keep? (Once a week, etc.)
    Availability
    Timezone
    How do you want to play it? (IRC, social group, etc.)
    How much experience is required? (Is it beginner friendly?)

    From experience I recommend IRC for playing games, but making a social group is a good idea to organize when to play. Feel free to PM me with any new social groups and I'll list them below.


    There aren't any hard rules as of now for Roleplay Gaming in Circ, aside from those that apply in general. However, if you are playing in one game it would be polite not to play in another if it would prevent another person from doing so. Just my two cents.


    Games List:
    (In Progress) Rise of the Runelords Pathfinder - icecoolblue

    Hey guys, I was hoping to start up a Pathfinder game and was looking for potential players. We would be running through the Rise of the Runelords adventure path, starting with the Burnt Offerings module.

    Moderate experience with rpgs would be nice, but I'm willing to accommodate for newbies. I'm shooting for a once a week session, and my availability is pretty open right now, so it mostly depends on what time most players would be able to make it (I'm in the pacific time zone btw). I'm roughly guessing that each session should last about 3 hours (Rough estimate)

    We'll be playing through the IRC, since I believe it's the easiest way to do this.

    A few things to note to those interested:

    The focus here is on having fun and roleplaying your character. No sharked out min/max characters please. Also, since we'll be emphasizing role playing, keep the meta gaming to a minimum (although special tolerance will be given to new players).

    I could play something. ICB's game seems intriguing, but I think my timezones effectively prevent that? I doubt I could pull off 100% commitment but my Friday and Saturday nights can get close.

    Availability: Friday 11PM-2AM and Saturday 10PM-2AM
    Timezone:GMT+2 with daylight savings.
    Preferred games: one-shots, cohosting, ICB's game only if the timezones would match perfectly, otherwise I'd become a nuisance.
    Experience level: Nice

    Gamemastering:

    I can help design games/cohost. If people are interested in one-shots I can design/host them. I've been really busy lately but it's starting to loosen up a bit. Especially when the summer holiday comes (beginning of June here in Finland). If a game is needed collectively, I can do one-shots to introduce people in tabletop RPGs but I'd prefer cohosting due to the timezone issue.

    I've been gamemastering GURPS for ~15 months and PF for ~6 months. Though my actual playing experience is limited to ~3 months of irl games and 2 PSWs.

    Bottom line: I can do and anything if asked and helped (though I'm not familiar with Exalted), timezones permit.

    Invisible edit: Yes, I could do a MLP one-shot.

    Availability: Weekends, most afternoons and evenings (not Wednesday evenings for a while, though), most nights
    Timezone: Because of Daylight Savings time, usually GMT-4, though GMT-5 in the winter
    Preferred Games: Pathfinder, though I could probably easily learn D&D, or other games with a little help at first
    Experience Level: 2 PSWs and an ongoing playtest PSW, so still Noob.

    confession of forks: it has been my secret dream since 6th grade to be part of an ongoing d&d campaign :x :x :x

    availability: a little loosey-goosey right now with exams coming up, but should be mon/tues/thurs/fri before 5pm and all day sunday
    timezone: gmt -8
    preferred games: i am mostly interested in d&d but i'm open to learning other stuff too!
    experience: pretty low, i have read the core rulebooks for a few different editions and played a few short-lived (and also bad) campaigns on msn

    i don't know much about pathfinder, but i am under the impression that it is very much like d&d and so i would be open to joining icecoolblue's campaign (schedule-permitting)

    edit: yeah i am totally down for pathfinder

    Availability (Weekends, Nights, etc.): Eh... I have limitless free time, but my sleep schedule is so irregular that I cannot commit to being available during a single time period at a regular interval, so any campaign that involves meeting regularly is out.
    Timezone: +10 GMT
    Preferred Games (D&D, Pathfinder, Gurps, Exalted, etc., feel free to say if you are open to anything): I'm open to anything, I just have to learn it. I know a decent amount for a newbie about Pathfinder because I played in Philosopher's Stone War II here in Circus.
    Experience Level (Subjective, just how much roleplaying you've done): Pretty new, though I did and am willing to do the research. I played in PSWII!

    Currently we have more potential players than potential DMs. Aura Guardian is working on a campaign, but in the meantime...
    INSIDINARI or, SKY MEN AND THE CULT OF DEAD WOOD (or neither Agape nor I can name games well)

    Agape and I have made a small beginners game that would only last a few sessions, but introduce players in groups of 4. It's based on D&D 3.5 for simplicities sake, but heavily influenced by a Pathfinder module. The game will have 4 premade characters whose backstory, gender, etc you can make up. There will be intrigue, combat, adventure, and dungeon crawling. Since Agape helped to make the game we are at least gonna try to tailor the first one to his schedule so he can help host. If I don't get to you the first time around don't worry, we'll repeat this game until everyone gets to try it. Gonna be IRC, for beginners obv.

    Just noting than this thread/movement (including PSWs!) could be advertised on the Smog. It would bring a few more interested people who don't frequent circus. Perhaps now, perhaps after the first successful games, but it should be done IMHO!

    Posting this here, because I don't know where else to put it.

    I have a "Freestyle" RP group that is, well, dying. I am looking for people that will be active and participate in creative construction of future RP's and help on deciding where to go in RP's that are already started. If you are interested, the group is called "Free RPG".

    Thanks ahead of time. :D
