    This club has been pretty inactive for a while. The fact is, I simply don't have time to run games on a regular basis (although, I am always looking for assistant admins to run short games -OR- anyone who would like to advertise their own games here is free to do so, as well). So, I've come up with an idea for a game which I can keep on top of: forum-based D&D.

    At its heart, Dungeons & Dragons is a pen and paper RPG with dice. And with the addition of dice rolls to the forum, there's no reason that one couldn't play D&D via a forum thread.

    So, here's the idea: I (and possibly one or two others) will serve as the Dungeon Master (DM). I will assist players in creating characters and will dictate the setting, create encounters, award loot, and generally facilitate gameplay. I will begin the game with a scenario and will regularly give instructions and respond to player actions via a designated thread. Players will declare their actions by posting in said thread and using the roll command to roll the appropriate dice. I will respond with the results of said actions and the effects of the dice rolls before continuing on with narrating the various scenarios and encounters.

    This will be a long-form game (the campaign itself may be short, but I expect to be playing this over the course of a few months, given the nature of playing in the forum). Players should expect to reply to the campaign thread at least once per week; the pace of the game will be determined by how responsive players are. I will do my best to keep on top of replies.

    The campaign will be using 2nd Ed. AD&D rules which can be found here: http://www.purpleworm.org/rules/

    If you're interested in playing, reply to this thread letting me know. In a week or so I will create the campaign thread and we'll get started.

    No problem. I'd be happy to teach you how to play as we go along.

    I myself am not one for long drawn out forum style DnD. That being said i like the idea of ADnD tho. If you need help bouncing ideas off of me a im all ears or if others need help coming up with character ideas for backgrounds.

    Don't think I'd go too well with text-based. I'd be more up for something like a vid call-based if anything. I'll probably read the campaign though?
