"The Andresian Republic" - DnD 3.5 or Pathfinder for the Frederick area

  • Nov 9, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • The Ornamental Weed Garden

Originally designed as a homebrew Dungeons and Dragons setting that bridges the gap between 3rd and 4th edition. Assume that Greyhawk and 4th edition's "Points of Light" settings are the same world. How did civilization go from relatively normal to survival mode? This game takes place in a territory that remained neutral during a great war, and has become a hub for refugees from the entire world. The rulers of this little Republic suddenly find themselves deciding on the direction that the only known survivors of this war will follow... and they're going to need help to carry out their will.

This game will either be run as D&D v3.5 with a set of flexible house rules, or Pathfinder depending on player interest. While my games usually have a greater focus on roleplay than combat, this is also something I'm adaptable on. The only firm rule is this: players must agree to hold sessions in a setting where young children are present, so content will be kept "PG-13" and adult language should be kept to a minimum.

Another important note: the space in question is home to two cats. If you have severe allergies, this will probably be an issue.

Detailed flavor text about the campaign setting is available upon request. Please note that I am unable to honor requests for specific flavors of the text in question. I am still trying to get strawberry jelly out of my ethernet port due to an earlier request.

    Also, as far as Pathfinder vs. D&D 3.5 goes: let's try running the first couple of sessions using the modified D&D rules I wrote the campaign for. I've cherry-picked some improvements from 4th edition and D&D Next to consolidate some skills, rebalance the core races (no races take ability score penalties) and allow for a couple of Monster Manual races to be played at low levels.

    If players still find themselves missing something important that the Pathfinder rules allow for, we can either incorporate it into the house rules or go for a full conversion to Pathfinder at that time. Since regular sessions may not start up until December at this point, I figure there's no rush on deciding right away. I should have time to meet with Jimbo and Mark individually in November to see what you two think.

      Patrick, I would be available on the 23rd. I haven't kept up with the Next stuff, but I'm sure we can work it out.

    Cross-posting from another thread:

    I've tentatively decided to make this a weekly game on Saturdays. Start time remains flexible. First session will happen on the 9th but there will be no game on the 16th due to a work conflict that just came up.

    As far as I know, I can run a game on the 23rd... as long as it doesn't conflict with the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who. Doctor Who is serious business.

      Let me know if your Friday nights become open again, those are still good for me so far.

    I'm in and looking forward to it! I'm voting for PF if possible. . .

    Also, I checked with my brother, and he's out. Doesn't think he could get away from his family that regularly...
