Red Hand of Doom [PbP]
« on: July 12, 2015, 04:45:58 PM »
I'm starting up a play by post Red Hand of Doom game on the giantitp forums. Starting level is 7, standard array and point buy are allowed but you can't have ability scores over 16 if you choose to point buy. Currently we've got two players, both of whom are fairly damage-oriented so some more utility-based characters would be preferable. Backstory isn't too important, since the game's mostly going to be about combat.

There's nothing to link to yet, still mostly in the planning stage.

Not gonna lie, it's tempting, since I'll probably rarely get chances to play Legend, but I'm not really sure how engaged I would be with an intensely combat-focused campaign, even if it's using the best combat system out there.

Here's hoping you get some dedicated players. :)

Would be useful to know how you plan on playing IRC, skype, etc.  How often you plan on playing and what times/time zones.  My summer schedule is crazy right now but I am excited to play legend if I can work it in my schedule.

It's a play-by-post game. It's not going to be a pure combat game, there are plenty of opportunities to chat with NPCs and each other, including important negotiations and things like that, but the main aim of the module is to stop a big horde of bad guys by killing them all. So if that's too much combat for you then it probably won't be the game for you.

I'd be interested.  I'll play around with some character ideas and keep an eye out for the game link.

I don't have time and know RHoD too well already -- both of which are related to the fact that I'm currently running it myself -- but back in the day, I worked on converting all the RHoD stat blocks to Legend. Let me know if there are any you want me to send along.
