I'm ready to begin moving forward with the Official Humanspace Empires play by post play test and development campaigns. Yes, campaigns, I've decided to split the volunteers into two groups based on their stated preference for theme. I think the smaller groups will allow for greater individual involvement and minimize the lag that a large group might be unable to avoid.
I would like to have characters generated by the weekend if possible.
The looters game has been named the Ancient Astronauts Campaign. Assuming all of the players that expressed interest in the game are still on board, there are no additional spots available.
The players are:
Players in the the Ancient Astronauts Campaign may generate characters following the rules in the playtest draft. Any class or species should be fine. Abilities should be rolled 3d6 in order as stated in the rules. If you have a character concept that requires certain minimums keep rolling up stats until you get it and send me a copy of all the failed rolls for statistical analysis. If you really want to play an android or robot or mutant or something really odd email me at thedrune at gmaildotcom and I will try to work it out. Characters should be first level with randomly generated starting credits from which you may purchase equipment.
The Imperials game has been named:
Spaceswords & Glory
The players are:
At this time there are two additional spots open for this game if anyone else wants to play, comment below.
Character generation will be a little more complicated for this game as players will be the crew of a small Humanspace Naval vessel (think alternate universe Evil Star Trek bearded Spock). Once all the players are assembled we can discuss ranks, position, character level, etc. Email me with any questions.
Remember, I warned you that I've never run a pbp game but I'm thinking about running these campaigns on blogs. Let me know if you hate this idea but I think it has several advantages. I like the customization of blogs vs. message boards and I don't foresee needing any integrated features like dice rollers (we will be on the honor system) abd email may be used for secrecy when necessary.
So, let me know what you think and the Naval Forces of the Third Terran Empire are looking for a couple of good lifeforms if you missed the first chance at signing up.
Also, please note the new Humanspace Resorces page at ix. It is attempting to index all the new Humanspace material thats been bubbling up lately and will be regularly updated.
