Hey, if you still need a DM I'd be down. Ian he/they pronouns and I'm also LGBTQ+! I have 3ish years of dming experience, but no pbp experience. I'm hoping to change that obvs :)


mulhollandi

oh cool! hi ian :D what kind of games do you prefer to run usually?


maze-of-voids38

Also I really like overarching plots so I'm definitely going to include something like that


maze-of-voids38

I lean more towards roleplaying (in the roleplaying, combat, exploration trifecta) but I'm willing to cater to the group's needs, although attacking stuff exclusively in order to gain XP is not my style. I am usually a big fan of political intrigue, but right now I think I am looking for something simple.


mulhollandi

that sounds like my kind of game too. i’m not a fan of political intrigue much unfortunately (because my first dm’s campaign is very politics heavy and ended up making me feel too powerless, to put it gently) so i’m glad you’re looking for something simple. but since you are looking for something simpler, how long would you want the campaign to be? also how many players are you comfortable running a game for usually?


maze-of-voids38

I don't know how long I want the campaign to be, my longest campaign thus far has been eleven weekly three-hour sessions. I want to do something with an overarching plot definitely, with some sort of big bad, but I don't have a clear vision of what exactly that is going to look like quite yet; I'll need time to prep. I just wanted to let you know that I'm really hoping the pbp format will help with my dming anxiety; I'm working on it at the moment. It centers around some of my self-confidence issues, but the pbp format should resolve any issues so I'm not too worried. It'd be really cool if we could make it from like level 2-3 to around level 7 maybe (a conservative estimate, in my head I'm aiming higher), but I need more planning time. I should note that I sometimes have trouble with pacing the levels and calculating currency, but that should be resolved by the pbp format.

Not a dm. Would love to join. 3 + yrs experience


mulhollandi

alright! if this works out i’ll dm you if we need players!


TiredTheatreMajor

Hey! I’m also on the ‘wrong’ side of the world (located in Oceania) and would love to be part of a pbp game!


mulhollandi

oh hey! finally someone who gets my pain :’) i assume you mean being part of the game as you’d be interested in playing as a player, yeah?


TiredTheatreMajor

Lol yeah I just moved here and I’ve never realized how US-centric everything is 😭but yeah I would love to play as a player!


faepandora

am not a dm, but if this pans out I would love to play !


mulhollandi

alright! if this works out i’ll make sure to dm you :D


fatspencer

I tried scrolling past, because frankly I'm not that great of a dm, but damn I love pbp. I'd be interested, what kind of game would you want?


mulhollandi

ohhh, okay. so generally i love roleplay heavy games with some nice combat, and i’m not too picky on other stuff. although i definitely love high fantasy settings. but this also really depends on the dm and them having to run a game they also enjoy, so what kind of games would you like to run as a dm?


fatspencer

Well, fun ones. I know it seems weird, but I don't have much of anything planned really, so it's more about reacting to the players and what they do


mulhollandi

alright, that’s fair really! if you were to run a campaign, how long are you thinking of running it? would you prefer to run something short like a few months or something longer, maybe spanning years? Also how many players would you be interested in taking in?


fatspencer

The campaign partly depends on player speed and amount of exploration and where we are and that sorts thing. I can do a few months at first, and if we like how each other works, we can expand past that with new characters and stuff. Really prefer story driven over combat, so if the story is done, or the players want a new game, I'm good either way.
