Sessions Summaries: https://logger-stream.campaign-logger.com/?rss=9d04bc90ab7d4c0a85f51d063cb83f61&mode=next
- We do not try to complete one mission in one session
- We want to keep missions as short as possible, though, but without hastening through sessions
- We favor ROLE playing over ROLL playing
- We like rolling dice in addition to interactive play, though
- The GM will prepare only a few scenes and leave freedom for interaction between player characters
- Missions are selected and organized by players, and then prepared by the GM
- Player-organized also includes finding a suitable date and time
- All mistakes are final: https://campaign-community.com/index.php?threads/rpt-newsletter-002-the-time-bomb-solution.1340/
- Cost of Living: Every adventurer pays it one time at the end of the current adventure. The rest of the time between adventures they will earn their upkeep somehow (no rolls required).
- What about character creation? You are free to create your character on your own, following the rules. If you don't have the rules (yet), I can provide you a pre-generated character. If you feel uncomfortable creating a character on your own, I will gladly help you. Let's find a date and time so I can guide you through the process.
- Where can we talk in character to prepare for our next mission? Please use the associated Borderland - Dancing Cauldron thread for this.
- How does scheduling a game session actually work? You say when you want to play and what you want to do. When you are at least 3 players (and at max 5), and I am available as a GM, we will have an appointment! So when some else suggests a time and a mission, chime in early to reserve your seat and/or discuss alternative times/missions, so we come to an appointment soon. Please give me at least a week of preparation for that game! That said, I will surely suggest a date and time (but no mission) now and then. Especially to get new players started or to kick things off.
- When are you available then? I am usually available to GM from Tuesday to Friday, starting at 7 pm CET until midnight. I prefer to keep the length of game sessions to about three hours, give or take half an hour.
- I am an English-speaking gamer; when can I partake? Create a character, and take part in the in-character discussions immediately! Please give me one or two starting sessions to sort things out. Then I will open up the table to all interested players.
- I am not exactly European time zone compatible, but interested in your game; is there a chance...? Create a character, and take part in the in-character discussions! You will also be able to follow along with the adventures as they will be made public due to a West Marches-style game's nature. If you can gather a group of like-minded players during a time I can manage, I will try to get a game up for you once in a while.
- My English is not good enough to game by! I can only offer games in German and English. Please add whether you would prefer an English or German game and whether you can or cannot do it in one of the other languages. That way, players know when to join or not.
