AD&D 3.5 Game

  • July 6, 2012 · 6:00 PM

I will begin a campaign July 6, 2012. The setting will be a world of my creation called Irith, found at http://irith.abqracing.com/. Navigate to "The Rules, Baby." to get an idea about my outlook on the game.

The campaign will be have a "big picture" theme that the players will piece together. The individual encounters/scenarios will be based upon character histories, which means that everyone will have a vested interest in the quest as they march toward the larger goal.

The game will take place at my house in Rio Rancho near Northern and Unser. I'll have an 8'x6' gaming table with plenty of room. I'm putting this out early so I can get character histories and begin writing to ensure plenty of exciting material for all.

Also, we will begin with 1st level characters.

If you are interested in playing, please email me at "snowbones at abqracing dot com"

Thanks
Curtis

    Robb did it all in photoshop and did a fine job!

    Glad your game went well! I just found the land maps on your webpage. What did you draw them in?

    Had a great night of gaming. In attendance were John, Warren, Jane and Greg. For a recap of what took place, you can read it at:

    Might I ask a favor? I would really appreciate it if you could cross-post here, if that's possible. I would love any murmuring that it would generate.

    It's all good. Just get yerself cloned. I use something I started many years ago to recap each week. It's called "The Poodle Mulch Progress Report". I use it not only as a chronicle but a way to poke fun at myself and the players. I'll post them on my site.

    Curtis, I am very sorry I do not have another life with free time to join your game. I am very much hoping for some mission recap posts, though.

  • Curtis B.

    no problem ... I'm sorry to hear that's happened :(

    Ok got a great history for Jane's character. Haven't heard from Lizzy in a while. You still out there?

    July 1, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Ok I just got a reply to a posting from my irithboard from Greg saying he's been emailing me to both my [masked] and [masked] addresses but i've not received. I am eliminating my blacklists to ensure no one's emails are getting snagged. If anyone has emailed me with no response, reply to the irithboard posting and also try to resend anything you've sent before to the two addresses above.

    Curtis is good about mixing things up and keeping information fresh. He does recycle names on occasion though. There will be an elf named Quoir somewhere guaranteed - and I will have to kill him out of general principle.

    June 21, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    He's been in Irith before. The material I'm going to be writing will be new tailored stuff for the group but in the same general area as before to start. He created the maps for my world recently and did an awesome job of it. Come a long way from the colored pencil sketches I put on graph paper nearly 30 years ago.

    June 21, 2012

  • Nicholas H.

    Just curious here. As long as Robb and you have known each other, has Robb run around in Irith before? Seems like a big enough place that you might not see the same place again, or are there going to be shadows of what has gone before...?

    June 20, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Robb and John have provided me with excellent histories to start the campaign. How about Jane, Greg and Hubby?

    The shields look great.

    I've updated the northern houress page with heraldic shields, city and other information. Check it at http://irith.abqracing.com/northern.shtml

  • Curtis B.

    Well I started pissing people off at a young age. I found it was a natural ability of mine, kind of like a sixth sense. My life became complete when I met Robb, a man nearly ten years my junior yet miraculously fifty years the wiser. And I like pie.

    Are we going to know each other before the game starts? Does the group want to share back stories?

    KABOOM!

  • Curtis B.

    And over the crowd came a hush so complete it felt like the air had been sucked out of the room ...

    June 14, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    I sent and email with my address, directions and contact number to: Greg, Lizzy, John, and Jane. If any of you have not received it, please let me know.

    June 10, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Greg, let me know what you need and we'll work it out.

    I'm going to be playing a hybrid warlock/bard. I'll be using the 3.5 warlock and bard data, and merging them as best I can by 4e Hybrid rules. I have some ideas for minor changes to the Warlock side that I'll be running by Curtis.
    I'll be playing a Tiefling, which I'm also adjusting for reasonable play as a normal player character in 3.5 - also run by Curtis.

    Hopefully this will result in some fun conflict, and nothing disruptive.

    Lizzy if you don't get the invite then send and email to [masked] and I'll approve.

    Jane, you lost me. I'm into the next plane to florida if I ever win the lottery.

    June 9, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Lizzy I resent the invite. I see you have a yahoo account. If you don't see the invite, then please look in your spam folder as sometimes it gets lost in there.

    And @Curtis...into....what? The air? My pants? His pants? Potted plants? the crowd? His Hat?.....etc

    I am looking forward to updates! You might want to make a post on the message board. Might be easier for everyone to find.

    June 8, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    I sent out invites to my campaign chat board called Irithboard to Jane, Greg, Lizzy, and John. This will be a place to chat about the campaign and archive information about it.

    There's no logical reason why she puts up with my crap but if you had a hand in it I may actually give you your stupid die back.

    June 7, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    And I think you're mistaken that I replaced your wife with a clone that was gentically engineered to put up with your crap. It's all just a conspiracy theory. She's your real wife and she really likes you.

    @Curtis - I think you are mistaken about why some unknown player replaced your White d20 with red numbers with identical White d20 with red numbers. No one thought it was weighted. I do know with some certainty that you rolled remarkably lower with the new die and that the original die needed to be retired for the sake of the party. I also believe that you were compensated with multiple white d20s with red numbers. This event was also 8 years ago and some DMs need to know when to LET IT GO.

    June 7, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Just a heads up, folks. I'm not posting my address here. I'll only give maps and directions to those I've corresponded with through email and feel comfortable inviting up.

    June 6, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Warren if things work out so you can play, email me at snowbones at abqracing dot com and we'll discuss what you'd like to do.

    thanks

    I'm not 100% sure that I will be able to play (I am starting up my own campaign over Skype with my old troupe and we might converge upon the same time). But if I can play, I will likely play a mage, single or multi-classed.

    June 6, 2012

  • Curtis B.

    Hey all, if I've not responded to your email within 24 hours, please post something here to let me know when you sent it. I may have an email problem but not sure and need to verify things for the next few emails.

    What characters are people thinking about playing? Since Robb said he was going to roll up a ranger, I will go ahead and roll cleric so we will have someone healing.

    @Curtis. Dude! Pleeeeeze send me the PDF so I can roll my character up. Also if you have a character sheet, I'd be grateful. ty

    Looks like we have a good group firming up. Here's a blurb for the beginning of the session. "You all have come to Regdon City, the crown jewel of the kingdom of Regdon. The spring tournament is in full swing and you've all enjoyed the excitement and the atmosphere. You've been hearing open talk of a wizard dazzling the crowds nearby and wished to see what all the fuss is about. You arrive at a stage to see a man in bluish robes is throwing brilliantly-colored balls of light into ...

    I would be interested in joining your gaming group when you start it up if you have room for one more player.

  • Curtis B.

    Thanks for the link Andrea! Warren, looks like you've been through some players who got a little frisky there hehe. I had one player actually steel my d20 because he was convinced it was weighted. Funniest thing I ever saw.

    May 28, 2012

  • Warren

    I wish I could have clicked the Like button on your "DM vs. Player vs. Story" paragraph. It's not to say that I don't believe healthy questioning of the DM is a good thing, but I hate when I have to convince players that I'm not out to get them. I'm not a sadist nor do I have control issues. Focus on the story!

    May 28, 2012

  • Gregory A.

    I'm all over it.

    Sounds like a great game! I can't join, but if you are still looking for players, you could check out the ABQ-RPGgroup at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/ABQ-RPGgroup/
