Summer campaign
"Once, long ago there was a Kingdom of unspeakable wealth that traded in dark wonders, secrets and death. And many of the strange things now on earth were theirs. They drew their power and magic from a place, and guarded it fiercely against all. Then, out of spite (somehow) as their kingdom slowly died, they hid their treasure palace in a lake, and set there: sleepless and indestructible guards. Everyone knows where it is, on the Lock, upriver of Carrowmore. No-one who goes there has ever come back."

I am looking to set up a summer campaign running sometime from May till August for four or five players. Last year's crowd and my current gaming group will take precedence, but I am open to new players if space allows.

The campaign will be based on a pre-published adventure "Deep Carbon Observatory" and we'll use 5th edition as the system. The adventure is a retro-clone: it is deadly and doesn't care about playing fair. You will probably need bring a small entourage of support cast to offset the loss of life.

5th doesn't necessarily fit that play style so I don't know what the end result would look like, but it'll remain plenty deadly. I may have a more old-style chargen—I don't know yet. I cannot promise it's going to be fun, but it'll surely be something.

Deep Carbon Observatory? I've heard about that, lots of good things. Talked with some of the people behind it too. Definitely interested!

What you need to understand about the apocalypse is that you aren't Mad Max. You're part of the skull pyramid in the background.

RE: Summer campaign
The module does a few things really well, some others less well. We'll have to see how it works out.

Old school games give few shits about balance. Because this is an old school game I'd like to suggest we roll for stats: 4d6, discard lowest in order.

What is your plan re: time, date, location, etc.?

Nothing set in stone. First suggestion is bi-weekly on Mondays, but other day should be feasible.

Om de dinsdag en om de woensdag voor mij. Donderdagen kunnen eventueel ook. Vrijdagen en weekend zijn altijd lastig, dus die maar beter niet.

Suggestion is bi-weekly Tuesday with a starting date May 16 or May 23.

Tristan heeft een zeer sterke voorkeur voor een locatie buiten hilversum.

RE: Summer campaign
Ik zal even moeten double-checken met Wolf, maar ik geloof dat zijn spel op de 16e zal zijn, maar met zijn werkrooster is dat niet altijd even duidelijk. Maar een van die twee zou wel moeten kunnen.

De locatie... ik geloof dat vier van de geïnteresseerde wel in Hilversum wonen. Welke andere locatie had je in gedachten?

De enige alternatieven zijn een buiten-buitenwijk van Utrecht of Leiden. Utrecht is goed bereikbaar met auto, maar openbaar vervoer minder. Leiden is al snel een uur. Ik weet ook niet of het haalbaar is, maar is wel iets om te overwegen.

Hmm. Ik zat al wat te twijfelen wegens drukte, side-projects en weinig vrije tijd doordeweeks, en hoewel het me heel leuk lijkt maakt een locatie buiten Hilversum het voor mij lastig.

Ik snap uiteraard dat aan de niet-Hilversumse kant soortgelijke zorgen spelen Smile

Maar bij deze haak ik dan toch maar af, all things considered.

Ik weet niet of een locatie buiten hilversum feasible is, maar wil het wel even opperen. Haak je ook af bij een locatie binnen hilversum?

RE: Summer campaign
Het is vooral dat ik merk dat ik het doordeweeks gewoon erg druk heb voor alle dingen die ik wil doen en regelmatig dus niet aan heel veel van die dingen toe kom..

Dus ik denk dat het verstandiger is om sowieso af te haken hiervoor Sad

Ik heb zelf geen auto beschikbaar, dus buiten-buitenwijk Utrecht/Leiden is voor mij ook wel een issue.

dan is hilversum waarschijnlijker. Kijken of we spelers over houden.
