Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
"Martial, Mystical and Arcane escorts needed for Academic caravan to distant lands. All specialties requested, pay commeasurable to level of danger inherent in the journey. Come to the third floor of Newmoon Inn tonight, one hour past sunset, prepared to depart."
Those were the words posted about on white squares of parchment throughout the taverns and inns of Starilaskur. Simple enough. Also quite vague. And, for some reason you couldn't put your finger on, intriguing and completely irresistible. You needed the work, you knew you were good enough to handle any trouble some four-eyed Professor could get himself into, and a word like 'commeasurable' on the posters meant you'd at least be travelling with people who knew how to read. So you packed your supplies, oiled your gear, and headed on over to the Newmoon at the proper time.
The late Summer evening is breezy and pleasant as you walk to the Inn and climb the wooden stairs to its upper levels. Inside you find a half-open door with the poster upon it, and through the door you find yourself in a room with almost a half-dozen other adventuresome types standing awkwardly about as a weathered man with thin greying hair and moustache over incredibly sharp feathres stares at you across the room in flickering candle light. You know instantly something is wrong: The posture. The muscle tone. The matte green traveling cloak. The unwavering eyes. You're not quite sure what this man is, but you're damn sure he's no Professor.
Quiet moments pass and the man glances through a window to the darkening horizon. Satisfied, he rises and nods to each of you in turn. "My name is Captain Bryan Arturo, and I am a Dark Lantern Agent of the King's Citadel. I am afraid I have lied to you, but only a little, and with good reason. Close the door, we have business to discuss. Coffee's on the corner table, and trust me, you will need some."

-Backgrounds: Something would be nice, but I'm not asking for a novel. Just show me you know how to write and we're good.
-Alignment: All are welcome, except "Chaotic Stupid", "Lawful Stupid", and "Kender". And whatever your alignment, you need to have your party's back.
-Game type: A bit of intrigue, a bit of detective work, a bit of role-playing, and a bit of hack-and-slash
-I can't say how long the campaign will last; the idea I have will be fun for a good long while if we can keep things going, but even if things fall apart quickly I'm ready to have some fun for the duration.
Submissions will be open until at least Tuesday at 11:59pm PST; do please have your completed characters ready by then. Ask if you have questions, and let's get our game on .
